BUNN BXW Velocity Brew 10-Cup Coffee Maker – Full Review

 

 

 

 

The Bunn BXB Velocity Brew is the fastest home coffee brewing machine available. The water in the internal hot water tank is kept super hot. This means that when you are ready for a fresh brewed cup of coffee, the machine does not have to heat the water first. That is how the Velocity Brew is able to deliver piping hot, delicious coffee in about three minutes.

The best and most popular feature is the speed at which it brews and the super great tasting coffee the machine makes. Other great features of the Bunn BXB Velocity Brew include:

  • The carafe holds 10 cups of coffee.
  • The unique spray head delivers an even spray of water for better saturation of the coffee grounds and more flavor extraction.
  • Stays on to keep the water in the tank hot and ready to go.
  • Internal hot water tank is made of durable stainless steel.
  • Warming plate is coated with porcelain.
  • Lighted on and off switch.
  • Glass carafe.

  Very classy design.

  The hot water can be used for other things like making tea or hot cocoa.
  The water tank seals tightly.

Cons

  Doesn’t make the coffee hot enough.
  Not as good as the previous model.

  Warming plate does not turn off automatically.
  The water heating tank is always on – using electricity.
  The water tank will run dry if you don’t use the machine regularly.

 

Questions and Answers

  “What if I forget to shut it off, will it turn off automatically?”

No. You have to make sure to turn it off, but it does have a very bright indicator light that is hard to miss.

  “Doesn’t it waste a lot of electricity leaving it on all the time?”

Not really. It’s less than $2 per month.

  “Is is better to turn off the water heater at night, or when not in use for extended periods of time?”

That is a personal choice. It really doesn’t make much difference.

  “How do you get the water out of the water tank?”

Unplug the machine and dump the water into the sink.

 

Conclusion

When you want fresh hot coffee in minutes, this is the machine for you. It is one of the fastest home brewing coffee machines on the market. It is a bit expensive, but it is well worth the cost for a tasty cup of coffee. You can’t program the Bunn BXB Velocity Brew coffee maker to have your coffee ready for you in the morning, but with a brew time of only three minutes, you really don’t need that feature.

    So this is a great coffee maker if you want a fast pot of coffee. The cons are many from a spray head that clogs easily with hard water, to a difficult machine to clean, and also makes weak less than a pot coffee. I would suggest asking for the free restricted spray head from Bunn. It doesn’t slow brewing significantly and makes stronger coffee and clogs less than the regular head.
