Bunn coffee makers have managed to establish their irreplaceable value in the coffee making world. Bunn-O-Matic Corp. the company behind the excellent beverage-making appliances for use at home or in the office is one of the household names in coffee making. Backed by a long history marked with great innovations since 1957 the company is now known for a wide variety of products such as coffee makers and accessories such as filters and carafes. In fact the company was the first who fashioned paper filters which came to be one of their most memorable inventions.
French press makers require hot water from a separate source while a vacpot which is called a siphon brewer or vacuum brewed coffee uses hot or cold water depending how one wants to use it. Another that requires hot water may not be considered a coffee maker but the coffee dripper that has a filter in it and sits on your cup or mug does make coffee. The most common maker is a drip coffee maker. This is true whether it is a pour over where hot water is poured over the grounds or hot water is pumped up from a side source and allowed spray water over the grounds. These makers have two shapes of filters known as the cone and the basket shape that has more drip area. Some drip makers offer a low electric heated hot plate while others offer radiant heat. Drip makers come in closed sealed and open coffee dispensing. Closed and sealed dispensing systems often close off the flavor and aroma while the coffee is being made.
It has been a long time since I have used a manual drip coffee maker but I do have limited experience with them. I began many years ago to use the single cup model as I was the only java drinker in the household at the time. If you can boil water and measure a tablespoon full of coffee the hard part is done one can easily make a great cup using the manual drip method and is certainly cost effective as they are generally inexpensive. The larger styles can brew 8- 10 cups at a time.
A lot of businesses such as restaurants and coffee houses are using Bunn coffee machines. They also have a number of great products designed specifically for homemakers but their captured market remains to be the commercial coffee making segment. Nonetheless homemakers are inspired to get Bunn coffee machines for their households with the idea of bringing great café-made coffee right into their homes. This is because Bunn`s products are widely popular due to its popular association with great-tasting coffee. Another rationale behind making the Bunn choice is that Bunn coffee makers are also long-lasting. Their models are mostly made from stainless steel. This will make your Bunn coffee brewing machine your longtime coffee making companion and it will serve you many cups of good coffee on mornings beyond your count.
The java is brewed by placing the coffee and water together leaving to brew for a few minutes then depressing the plunger to trap the grounds at the bottom of the container. Because the grounds remain in direct contact with the brewing water and the grounds are filtered from the water via a mesh instead of a paper filter java brewed with the French press captures more of the brews flavor and essential oils most of these are generally trapped in the paper or wire filters we use in the drip method of brewing. Because the used grounds remain in the drink after brewing French pressed coffee should be served immediately so as to not become bitter. A typical 8-cup French press is considered expired after 20 - 25 minutes as there is no warmer plate as in many makers.
Most drip filter makers function in the same simple manner: a paper filter sets in a basket (usually plastic) which holds the finely ground almost powdery bean. Cold water is poured into a chamber where it is heated and poured over the grounds. The brew is quickly extracted into a waiting carafe usually glass or thermal steel . The process is very simple and extremely reliable. Some have proclaimed that automatic drip coffee makers produce "off-tasting" flavors in the cup. I feel that those people need to either change or modify their coffee grind do not use reusable filters or should clean the drip maker as per the manufacturers directions.
