Key Features of BUNN Speed Brew

BUNN Speed Brew Overview

BUNN’s Speed Brew line is their encore to the successful Velocity Brew line, and they’re virtually identical. These are the notable changes:

  • The unique sprayhead has been modified to provide longer contact time with water and coffee grounds
  • Slight change to shape of filter basket to aid in smooth pouring into the carafe
Pros
  • Up to 50 oz brew size (8-10 cups of coffee)
  • Speedy 3 minute brew time and unique (and improved) sprayhead for optimal extraction
  • Improved filter basket design for smooth pour into carafe
  • Stainless steel internal tank with 200ºF temp
  • 3-year warranty
Cons
  • Some owners have complained of metallic or burning plastic smell, which BUNN says is from an epoxy used in construction
  • Can’t pause the brew and no Auto-Off feature
  • Takes 5-10 minutes to heat internal tank
  • Begins brewing as soon as you shut the lid

About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
