Hi Craig, as I said water does not go stale in the open. It can go stagnant in the open. An I have my unit on a timer. That unit cost me 15 on sale and i can have it do multiple on and of'sf so in my case it is set to warm the water at 6am and 4pm and is only on a short time.

Cheap timer on my end too.  No need to have it going 24 hrs a day.  There is no cafe in my kitchen and it doesn't take long to warm up if I have unexpected company.

Craig what happened with this post?  It looks like I posted the section where it reads:  "Hi Craig ..., but actually Judge posted that.  Odd one indeed.  I am referring to my post time stamped at 9:49 am.

Maybe when you edited you removed the x in quotes at the end?

Ah I see it the quote at the beginning is the issue with x in quotes a few times.

See how I adjusted it? when you end a quote you need to restart the quote if from the same person, I played with this one

Look Gents if you don't have your full pot "O" coffee in the morning......  Well it makes it hard.  Me I cheat a little, start with a Brikka, followed up by the pot.  Haha! ;-) Oh and to nice oxo coffee cups full of coffee for the drive to work and walk into work.

Start off first thing in the morning with a fresh cold pot of water then!

Just unplug your home Bunn unit after brewing, it only takes 12 - 15 minutes to be ready to brew..

Posted August 11, 2009 link


Sorry 12 to 15 minutes is too long.  I was used to the Bunn being done brewing a full pot in 4 minutes, didn't think I could take much longer then that.  Quick and simple morning coffee is a priority.  I was nervous about buying the TV because it took 6 minutes to brew!  Didn't think I could handle 2 more minutes!  

As for changing the roast, I always buy freshly roasted beans and grind them just before brewing, so the coffee didn't change.  I just think the home version of the Bunn is not as well made  as the commericial version.

Don't misunderstand my post, if I did not try the TV, I would buy another Bunn in a heartbeat.

The BUNN units do a brew in 3 minutes flat. What I was talking about is starting off with a cold brewing tank, & that takes 12 - 15 minutes to come up to brewing temp., then your brew at 3 minutes.

Craig, I know what you meant, but one of the benefits of the Bunn for me was coffee in 4 minutes.  If I unplugged the unit I would have to wait for the unit to heat back up and then wait the 4 minutes to brew. Making it about 15 minutes for a pot.  Deal breaker for me.
