This model is a good example of a standard coffee maker. It produces 10 cups of coffee in roughly three minutes.

In fact, if you do your research before investing in this particular appliance, you will find that the number of satisfied users far surpasses those of the disgruntled ones.
The BUNN BXB Velocity Brew comes equipped with a carafe made of glass and a warmer plate built of porcelain. It also has a stainless steel water tank that maintains the temperature at 20 degrees Fahrenheit ensuring that you are served a piping hot cuppa every time. Also, this particular temperature is considered to be ideal to bring out the most flavour from coffee beans.

Most experts and consumers put the average life span of this device at around four years and the manufacturer provides a limited cover guarantee for a period of three years. The product is aimed at those are more inclined towards the perfect cup of coffee than whether the machine producing it looks fancy enough or not. The basic black colour and stainless steel body have thus been designed by Bunn to make sure their customers can concentrate on the coffee rather than the maker.
Also to ensure that you get the best performance out of your coffee maker, it is necessary to clean and descale the carafe regularly because hard water tends to leave stains on the insides of the carafe and thus leaves the brew with a bitter taste. Also sometimes, users complain of coffee grounds getting stuck in the filter but this is a problem that can easily be solved by using filters meant especially for Bunn coffee makers.
Ease of use
In earlier versions of Bunn coffee makers meant for domestic use, the decanter had to be in place before you could pour water on the top. This made it necessary to use a separate container to pour water. Unlike its predecessors, the BUNN BXB Velocity Brew allows you to fill the machine using the glass decanter that is provided. This is because the device doesn’t start operating – that is the water doesn’t begin to flow – until you close the lid on the top of the machine. You only need remember to place the decanter back on the warming plate before you close the upper lid!
In keeping with its the simplistic philosophy that governs its designs, BUNN has chosen to obliterate unnecessary features that crowd device’s operating console. Though many may term an increased number of controls a convenience, Bunn believes in less-is-more.
This is an incredibly simple, basic machine that can be used by everyone. It produces great tasting coffee in a reasonably small amount of time. If you are looking for a no-frills, dependable appliance to your brew the day’s first cup of coffee for you, then this is the device you should be purchasing.
