I bought this coffee brewer for my husband. He wasn't sure at first if he liked it. It's taller than the usual coffee makers he has had in the past. He does use a little more coffee than what it tells you to use. He likes a good strong cup. He thinks it makes a great cup of coffee and likes the "fit" in the kitchen.
This is a great high tech Bunn coffee maker. It features an 8 cup pot instead of 10 or 12 which makes it the perfect size for a couple. Make 4 to 8 cups and coffee tastes incredible each time. Used a OS Coupon and got even more of a discount. What a bargain for a Bunn Coffee maker!
we are bunn people and this is a good coffee pot worth it and you wont be sorry

Over-all, this is an excellent machine. It makes great coffee, it has an upscale look, feel, and design. It is a little noisy while heating the water, but it comes on while I'm getting ready for work, so no problem. The carafe is smaller than average, but just right for me; besides if I need to make more coffee it will be fresh. The stainless steel coffee basket has a metal frame in the bottom holding the filter off the bottom and there is a ring trough in the bottom to help keep grounds from flowing into the carafe. You can tell this is a thoughtfully engineered design.
I love the Bunn Phase Brewer, it makes great coffee, and the 8-cup size is perfect for me. The only negative is that the glass carafe leaks badly when I pour the coffee. It seems to be leaking between the plastic rim and the glass. I don't know if this is a design flaw or if the carafe has a defect. Still, I'm very happy with my purchase.
Having had 2 drip style coffee machine's fail on me after around 12 months, I needed a more dependable machine. This machine came with a 3 year guarantee so I figured it was more cost effective in the long run and wouldn't leave me struggling to get out of bed with no morning coffee! I do keep this machine in the bedroom, now I had read reviews on the Bunn machines being quiet - this couldn't be further from the truth. This machine sounds like it's going to lift off when it's heating the water, it vibrates like crazy, makes loud gurgling sounds, I really can't understand how heating water (not even boiling it) can be so disruptive - when its finished heating and the water is released it drips into the jug very quietly, unfortunately it heats the water for around 6 minutes. The coffee is very good when its made, not bitter and made at the correct temperature.
Ordered this coffee pot, with only the idea that Bunn made good products a number of years ago. It came within a few days, on my doorstep - and what a great cup of coffee it makes. The water is heated initially so the coffe you get is delicious and hot, as it should be. I am hoping this will last for some time, - only thing is that the coffee filters needed are taller than typical ones found in the store - need to locate more of same. It isleek and simple, although the stainless steel look may be "faux" - perfect that it is 8 cup .
We love it, but their cup 'measure' of 5 oz. isn't realistic - even a measuring cup is 8 oz. and we like to use mugs so we need to brew at least 6 or 8 cups just for the two of us. We do think the coffee is delicious, however, and like that's it's brewed to a drinkable temperature, easy to clean up and simple to operate.
My wife and I (and now all 3 of our kids) use ONLY Bunn coffee makers. This has been the case for years. This is the first of this model and style. We like the profile of this, it takes up a little less counter space. It brews the coffee at the correct temperature(very important) for an excellent cup of coffee. We have never owned a Bunn with a timer, but now enjoy waking up to a pot hot and ready to enjoy. The cost is excellent especially when you consider Bunn Coffee makers have a 3yr. warrantee. Not all of our Bunn's have lasted exactly 3 yrs., but when you consider 90% of all other coffee makers have a 6 -12 mo. you can't beat it. If there is anything negative about this brewer, for us , is that is makes more noise than the Bunns we have owned in the past. Those models had a water tank that already had the water pre heated and ready to brew, thus no heating cycle. We love it and recommend this to anyone who enjoys coffee.
