Bunn Coffee Makers

Best Bunn Coffee Makers of 2020

Since you’re here, I think it’s only fair to assume you’re interested in BUNN, and my review might help you get started. I’ve put together a list of the best Bunn coffee makers - they excel at what they’re being made for, and will surpass your expectations.

BUNN NHS Velocity Brew 10-Cup Home Coffee Brewer

  • Fastest 10-Cup Home Coffeemaker* brews a full pot of coffee in about 3 minutes
  • An always hot internal hot water is ready to brew hot coffee on demand
  • Exclusive drip-free carafe with a proprietary lid and spout design that arcs the pour of the coffee into the cup and wicks the coffee dribbles back into the carafe preventing a mess on cup or counter
  • Multi-stream spray head showers hot water evenly over the coffee grounds
  • Large flat bottom filter and funnel allows greater interaction between hot water and coffee grounds for superior flavor extraction
  • Brews 4 to 10 cups (20 to 50 oz)
  • 3-year warranty
  • Backed by BUNN customer service in Springfield, Illinois
  • Based on internal testing of BUNN Speed Brew/ Velocity Brew coffeemakers to other similar coffeemakers

When BUNN advertised NHS Velocity as the fastest 10-cup home coffee brewer on the market, my curiosity was piqued. Just how fast could it be? And I found some interesting answers on my search.

Bunn has incorporated a stainless steel reservoir into this model. It gets heated so fast like a hot plate and that’s what helps to brew a 10-cup carafe in just 3 minutes! It also keeps hot water ready to brew from the time you switch it on – helping you to cut down a significant amount of prep time.

It’s advertised to brew a minimum of 4 cups at a time, so it’s definitely a family model. But you can brew a single cup as well, because it brews only the amount of water you fill the tank with. What’s special, however, is that the coffee taste doesn’t change. It’s consistent over the cups you brew – let it be single, 4 or 10.

The carafe of this model is another thing worth noting. BUNN has managed to reconsider the design of their carafes and seal off all leaking spots. So should you consider buying the NHS Velocity, you’ll no longer have to deal with a dripping problem.

On the downside, however, the coffee maker tends to fail in the hands of non-BUNN filters. They don’t have the extra height and quality needed to handle the pressure and speed at which the brewer operates. So as the only way to avoid grounds in the coffee and the overflowing problem, make sure to add a BUNN filter to your cart.

Positives
  • Fastest brewing time
  • Durably made
  • Comes with a redesigned carafe
  • An appealing, no-frills design

Negatives
  • Should use BUNN filters

MCU is one of BUNN’s best multi-functional coffee brewers made to serve one cup at a time. It doesn’t boast many bells and whistles, but it’s put together and advertised to surpass your expectations.

Not only can the MCU brew coffee from K-cups and coffee grounds, but also tea. For brewing tea, it accepts tea bags, pods and your own loose tea.

Better still, it’ll provide you with plain hot water as well. When you’re in the mood for a cup of hot chocolate, oatmeal or soup, all you need is to simply press the hot water button.

If you’re a coffeeholic who prefers coffee to be piping hot, then the BUNN MCU won’t disappoint you.

It serves coffee hot enough to burn your tongue if you weren’t careful. It comes with different settings for the coffee strength as well – which means that there’s a bit of a learning curve. But once you get a hang of it, it’d be worth the effort as you can have a flavoured cup to your liking.

The brewer, however, has no water reservoir. While some find it inconvenient, I actually like the concept. Every time you want a cup fixed, you pour in water and that amount would be the amount of your cup. It’s easy to measure, and I use my favourite coffee mug to measure water.

Positives
  • Brews flavoured, hot coffee and durable
  • Build quality is good
  • Customizable brew
  • Highly versatile

Negatives
  • Slight learning curve
  • No reservoir

BUNN BT Velocity Brew 10-Cup Thermal Carafe Home Coffee Brewer

  • Double wall, vacuum insulated thermal carafe keeps coffee warm for upto 2 hours
  • Unique spray head ensures even, complete coffee flavor extraction
  • Stainless steel internal hot water tank keeps water heated to optimal brewing temperature of 200 Degree F

  • Reservoir-style home brewer makes upto 10 cups of coffee in just 3 minutes

  • Sprayhead design improves coffee-flavor extraction; Hot water available for tea
  • Stainless-steel vacuum-insulated carafe; Close-and-brew lid; Vacation switch

Coffee can be an extremely time-consuming task during crunch times. If that’s the case, then BUNN BT Velocity should be the brewer to lie on your counter.

It can brew a maximum of 10 cups, and takes only about 3 minutes to get there. It’s in fact one of BUNN’s fastest brewers and wouldn’t slow down over time. Not only is it capable of brewing coffee, but also providing plain hot water for a variety of beverages you’d be in the mood for.

Better still, the speed of this brewer doesn’t compromise coffee quality. It has been incorporated with a unique sprayhead that extracts flavour evenly from the grounds, which makes coffee taste as good as it can ever be.

The thermal carafe of BT Velocity is actually a game changer. It can keep piping hot coffee warm for about 2 hours – enabling you to brew in advance until next time. So you can use it instead of fretting over a hot plate to heat your coffee.

If you consider buying this, do make sure you’ve enough space on your countertop because it’s quite beast of a machine. It measures at 7.5″ W X 13″ D X 15″ H – taller than most brewers and truth be told, it doesn’t look fancy.

I think the only thing BUNN manufacturers haven’t improved over the years is the looks. The quality is better than rival products, and may sustain daily abuse for at least a few years, but falls short in the beauty department.

Positives
  • Fixes coffee super-fast
  • Made to last
  • The insulated carafe keeps coffee hot for long
  • Simple and convenient

Negatives
  • Relatively large footprint
  • Finer grounds tend to overflow

BUNN BX-D Velocity Brew 10-Cup Coffee Brewer

  • Specifically designed for use in high altitude areas
  • Brews 4 to 10 cups (20 to 50 ounces) in about three minutes
  • Designed to remain on to keep the internal hot water tank heated and ready to go
  • Unique sprayhead ensures even, complete coffee flavor extraction
  • Stainless steel internal hot water tank keeps water heated to optimal brewing temperature of 200° F
  • Porcelain-coated warming plate with lighted on/off switch
  • Assembled in USA

BUNN has always held the reputation for producing the fastest brewers on the market – and so is the same with BX-D Velocity. Fast, however, doesn’t mean poor coffee strength. The water is run through the grounds at such speed that extraction of flavours is done extremely well.

So I wasn’t surprised to find how good it tasted. The strength, heat and taste of coffee can’t get any better than this. Brewing a pot full of coffee for your family is no biggie for this brewer, because it’s proven to do it in less than 3 minutes.

Though most parts are made up of plastic, be rest assured that it’d last way past your money’s worth. You’ll realize it in no time once you get to feel how sturdy it actually is. The pictures do BX-D Velocity no justice.

The biggest selling point of BUNN BX-D Velocity is its high altitude setting. If you’re living a lot higher from the sea level, then you should definitely be opting for a brewer in this category. The high altitude setting actually helps to serve you coffee at the ideal temperature, knowing how fast it cools down at higher altitudes.

On the downside, however, you ought to be careful with the fineness of the coffee grounds. BUNN filters, when used with finer grounds, tend to overflow due to the speed and force of the water.

Positives
  • The brewing process is very fast
  • Sturdily built
  • Could be used in high altitude areas
  • Made to last

Negatives
  • Finer coffee grounds will block the filter

BUNN GRB Velocity Brew 10-Cup Home Coffee Brewer

  • Fastest 10-Cup Home Coffeemaker brews a full pot of coffee in about 3 minutes
  • An always hot internal hot water is ready to brew hot coffee on deman. Item dimensions is 14.8 high x 7.1 wide x 13.8 deep inch. Note-replace sprayhead and brew funnel. Pour additional carafes of fresh, cold water into the brewer as needed until water has no vinegar smell or tasted
  • Exclusive drip-free carafe with a proprietary lid and spout design that arcs the pour of the coffee into the cup and wicks the coffee dribbles back into the carafe preventing a mess on cup or counter
  • Multi-stream spray head showers hot water evenly over the coffee grounds
  • Large flat bottom filter and funnel allows greater interaction between hot water and coffee grounds for superior flavor extraction
  • Brews 4 to 10 cups (20 to 50 ounce). 3-year warranty
  • Backed by BUNN customer service in Springfield, Illinois
  • Based on internal testing of BUNN Speed Brew/ Velocity Brew coffeemakers to other similar coffeemakers

BUNN GRB Velocity is the closest substitute to NHS Velocity – the only significant difference is observed in the way they’re designed.

The GRB is much taller, and wider than the NHS. It clocks in at 39 x 22 x 37 cm, which is nearly 15 cm taller than the NHS. So if you’re running short of countertop space, then GRB is not the model you should be checking out.

Just like the NHS, this one too, is super fast. It can brew a maximum of 10 cups in just under 3 minutes as it keeps a tank full of hot water always ready. The speed, however, doesn’t compromise coffee quality. It has a unique spray head to ensure even extraction of flavour from the grounds.

But do make sure the grounds are not finely ground – the finer they are, higher the risk of overflowing. However, you need to buy only BUNN filters. Non-BUNN filters don’t even hold a candle to the quality of BUNN, neither can they handle the speed at which GRB operates.

The other thing to usually watch out for is the carafe. But thanks to the remodelled design, it no longer drips. So you can now pour coffee easily and effortlessly.

The only notable shortcoming in this model, like most BUNN models is the lack of aesthetics. Though the best in terms of functionality, it doesn’t boast a classic look. This serves to be a disappointment for many.

Positives
  • Brews full-bodied coffee
  • One of the fastest brewers on the market
  • Convenient to use
  • Completely automated

Negatives
  • Larger footprintLacks aesthetics
  • Lacks aesthetics

Tired of burnt office coffee or have you had enough of waiting in a coffee queue that may never seem to end? Then you should certainly have a look at the BUNN VPR-2GD Commercial Brewer.

Made to sustain heavy use with an all-metal interior, this brewer is one of the favourites of all time. It does come with a price tag that’s on the high side. But be rest assured that it’ll serve you long enough to give the best bang for your buck.

It can brew up to 3.8 gallons of coffee every hour, or in other words, a full pot of coffee every 3 minutes. The speed, as always, is a huge bonus – enabling you to serve multiple employees back to back.

It has two burners, and serves coffee at the ideal temperature. The coffee taste is excellent as well, and will surely uplift the mood and productivity of your employees.

On the downside, however, the machine is quite noisy. It doesn’t come as a surprise to me given how fast the water is heated and passed through the grounds. But the chances are, the noisy process would be over by the time you start noticing it.

Lack of features is another thing worth noting before you place a buy. For the price, it’s only reasonable to expect at least a timer, but this brewer doesn’t come with one.

Positives
  • Brews full-bodied coffee
  • One of the fastest brewers on the market
  • Convenient to use
  • Completely automated

Negatives
  • Larger footprint
  • Lacks aesthetics

BUNN Speed Brew 10-Cup Home Coffee Brewer

  • Bunn-engineered sprayhead extends the contact time between water and grounds resulting in Coffee taste comparable to your favorite restaurant or Cafe
  • The very best of our gravity drip innovation reimagined in a contemporary, curved design.Maximum capacity: 10 cup (50 oz) batch,Minimum capacity: 4 cup (20 oz) batch
  • Internal water tank keeps water constantly heated to optimal temperature so you can brew a full pot in about 4 minutes
  • Pour-o-matic drip-free glass carafe is specifically designed to eliminate spillage down the side of the carafe and on the warming plate
  • Lime-tolerant spray head discourages mineral build up, which means less time cleaning and Longer brewer life cycle
  • Brewing time is approximately 4 minutes helping you get to your Happy place fast

Speed Brew is one of BUNN’s latest model, with better tasting coffee. Some even compare it with the coffee from famous coffee shops, claiming that there really is no difference.

This is mainly because the Speed Brew features a distinct sprayhead that allows water to be in contact with the grounds longer than the previous models. As a result, more flavours of coffee are believed to be extracted.

It needs only 4 minutes (a minute longer than Velocity) to brew a pot full of coffee. Just like the previous models, this is achieved through a tank that keeps water hot and ready. Speed Brew, however, has an on/off switch to shut off the heating system if you want to conserve energy.

As if the coffee brewed isn’t hot enough, a warmer plate is incorporated into this machine. It doesn’t feature an auto shut-off system, but does come with a separate on/off switch for your convenience.

Design wise, I accept that I tend to like the Speed Brew the most. It is curvier, and has a feminine touch lacked by the previous BUNN models. This design also has a better impact on how the coffee drips down to the pot.

The glass carafe, on the other hand, is as same as the ones found in all BUNN models. They’re redesigned to avoid spillage and messy kitchens.

Positives
  • A fast brewing process
  • Coffee can’t get any better
  • More convenient to use
  • Beautiful design

Negatives
  • Large footprint
