Not perfect, but one of the best home coffee makers.
Positive Product Points
So far, it's the only electric drip coffeemaker that brews at 200F and with a relatively short brew time and good coffee saturation. New 10 cup units do away with the old pour pitcher. Just pour in and go!
Negative Product Points
The version without the stainless trim on the tank isn't exactly sleek looking. It's better in black, in my opinion, than the white. Brew basket a bit small for the "proper" amount of fresh coffee. Can overflow if not careful.
I had purchased a Melitta Fast Brew at Target for using at the office. Our office coffee is WAY bad. The Fast Brew advertised 200F and half the usual brew time. The brew time was indeed quick, but the temp was only 185F (barely at that). I was disappointed in the unit overall, so I returned it for the Bunn.
I brought the unit home, filled it, plugged it in, and proceeded to measure the temp. BAM! Right on the money at 200F after the heating element kicked off. Perfect.
So, I drained it, and took it into the office to make some coffee the next day. Even using some Eight O'Clock 100% Columbian pre-staled whole bean, it makes a really decent cup, and with fresh beans it's wonderful. Much smoother brew than the Melitta.
The only caveat to the Bunn is that it only has enough basket capacity for about 8 to 9 cups worth of coffee grounds. Much more than that or if using a really fresh roast, the brew basket could tend to overflow. But, it's a minor issue if the grind is dialed in properly and you use the genuine Bunn filters.
Target was excellent with returning my Melitta for the Bunn with no hassles at all.
