Performance

The Bunn HB Heat N Brew Programmable Coffee Maker has a brew time of about one minute per cup which is the fastest we’ve seen in coffee makers so far. With such a quick brewing process you can still enjoy good coffee in the morning even if you’re running late. The brewing temperature is between 195 to 205 degrees fahrenheit so you’ll always get the perfect cup of rich-flavoured coffee. A full pot consists of 10 cups, which is pretty average for coffee, but consider the OXO Barista Brain 9 Cup Coffee Maker if 10 cups is too much and you want something less.

Design

The Bunn Heat N Brew Programmable Coffee Pot boasts a large brew basket which is easy to clean. Slide it out, dump out the coffee grounds, and toss it into a dishwasher. All components, including the glass carafe, are dishwasher safe. The drip free carafe possesses a large, strong handle for easy pouring with no spillage. It comes with a stainless steel design which normally means it would be hard to clean, but because it’s dishwasher safe it shouldn’t be too much of a problem. If stainless steel isn’t your cup of tea, though, try the Technivorm Moccamaster KBG 741.

Value

The Bunn HB Heat N Brew Programmable Coffee Maker’s digital clock lets you automate the brewing time so you have fresh, home coffee when you wake up in the morning. It’s an SCAA Certified Machine and the water reservoir has helpful markings of how much water is needed for how many cups you’re brewing. It comes with a 3 year warranty and retails for $130.00. If you need more of a budget coffee maker, the Bodum Bistro Coffee Maker should have you covered.

Bunn HB Heat N Brew Programmable Wrap Up

The Bunn HB Heat N Brew Programmable Coffee Maker isn’t the most eye-catching designed coffee maker and it’s a little on the expensive side. But do you want a machine that can brew a nice cup of coffee or one that looks nice on your countertop. The price? Well, that’s something you need to budget for if you want a good cup.
