Bunn Velocity Brew BT Review

Whether your home has several coffee drinkers or just one serious coffee aficionado, the Bunn Velocity Brew BT is a great coffee maker that fits either style.

With the ‘always on’ function of the Bunn Velocity Brew BT, two full carafes of water are stored at the perfect brewing temperature, of 200 degrees, so that once you add your grounds and a fresh measure of cold water, you have only 3 minutes to wait. Whether you prefer a half carafe or a whole, a carafe of perfectly brewed hot coffee is just a few steps away.

The velocity sprayer produces the best possible flavor as the water mixes with the grounds at a high speed to ensure that your coffee, whether you use a store brand or prefer to grind your own, tastes its best every time. Regular drip coffee makers can allow the water to over-saturate the grounds, producing the familiar ‘bitter’ taste of most homemade coffees. However, the Bunn will deliver the best possible taste without the bitterness and with a fraction of the wait time that you would normally expect.

bunn-carafeInsulated Carafe:
The double wall, vacuum insulated thermal carafe, which is cool to the touch, means that you can go from brewing to serving with no worry of burning yourself or damaging your furniture. If you like to brew a pot and take it to your desk, you cannot beat this Bunn.

The insulated carafe can keep your coffee hot for hours as is. However, you may increase the time by something as simple as adding your grounds as normal and filling the maker with your cold water. Then before closing the lid to start the brewing process, you simply run hot water into the carafe and let it sit for up to 30 seconds to heat the carafe, pour out the hot water, put your carafe in place and close the lid on the Bunn to start brewing.

Safe For Use Under Cabinets:
Unlike so many other coffee makers, the Bunn does not produce a high volume of steam when it is brewing, so it is safe to use under your cabinets, leaving the front access to the workspace available for other tasks, without risk of steam or water damage to your valuable wooden cabinets above.


The Bunn Velocity Brew BT is a sturdy 10 pounds with dimensions measuring 13.9 x 7.1 x 15.3 inches so it is stable and not easily jostled to cause spills, as are some drip coffee makers. Its short power supply cord is convenient, too. No more worries about excess cord tangling in other cabinet top appliances, or hanging over the edge of cabinets to tempt young children.

Convenient For Entertaining:
For entertaining friends and family, it is ideal. Since the reservoir holds two carafes of heated water, after making the first pot, the Bunn is busily preparing the water in the reservoir for the next pot while you are still serving. The reservoir has an 800-watt heater as well as an internal thermostat so that there is minimal wait before the next pot of delicious coffee is available.

Whether you are going away on vacation, or planning a weekend getaway, nothing could be easier than your Bunn. Simply use the convenient on/off switch located on the side to turn the power off. There is no need to empty the water on short trips, just turn the switch off when you leave and back on when you arrive home.

If you live in higher altitudes, where water boils more quickly, the Velocity Brew has a special model specifically designed for use at higher altitudes.

Always remember that coffee has natural oils, which can build up and cause problems in any coffee maker. To keep your investment in top shape, remember a simple fix is to take the carafe and lid apart, wash the gaskets with a good quality soft dish soap and rinse well to keep it in perfect working order. The carafe is dishwasher safe, too.

For regions with a high mineral content in their water, you should be thorough in cleaning to remove built up residue in order to retain the high function and great taste you will come to love and expect from your Bunn. Easy to follow instructions are included in the owner’s manual.

Why spend one more waiting for your coffee to finish brewing, or suffering through sub-standard flavor, just because you are making homemade coffee? You deserve to have the best experience and flavor to start your day, end your day and any time in-between. You deserve a Bunn Velocity Brew BT.

    The Bunn Velocity Brews are good coffee makers. I just don’t like how they’re heating the water 24/7, but I suppose that’s necessary for the fast brewing.
