My Cafe from Bunn. Brew amazing single cup coffee and save money by using loose ground coffee. Also works with K-Cups and Soft Pods. Great for brewing tea also.
- Expensive for a single cup brewer but well worth the investment Review by John D
Price Quality Value
The unit is always on, but does not consume that much electricity once the water is heated, so you have a ready to go source of hot water for beverages other than coffee. In addition, you do not get a trace of coffee flavour in the hot water as you use a special head unit for the hot water. There is an additional head unit for soft pods [i have not tried this yet] or for tea bags. I like strong tea so I must admit it is difficult to achieve when the water passes quickly through the unit rather than steeps the tea. But is it drinkable - yes!
The fourth head unit is for ground coffee. It has a stainless steel microfilter which allows some of the oils of the coffee to pass but not theof the fine grounds. To me the end result is the great taste of a french press without the telltale residue in the bottom of your cup. I feel the is the option we will be using the most.
In terms of build quality - what can I say - there is a reason you see a Bunn machine in so many restaurants. The quality is solid and functional. The machine is simple to operate, a breeze to keep clean, and the heads interchange in seconds with ease. I can not speeak to durability but may perhaps revisit this down the road. In terms of my perceived value for this unit, I feel it is expensive but worth it.
