This is the ideal java machine for people who want to grab a single cup in a jiffy as it only takes about 30 seconds for a great brew. What is great about this model is that it can accommodate all current pods in the market. This model comes in two variants. The first one has a 46 oz water reservoir while the other one is plugged into a water supply for unlimited single brew. The later is an ideal set-up for an office.

Cleaning Bunn Coffee Maker Instructions

Coffee oils, mineral and sediment deposits naturally occur in the coffee machine. You need to periodically clean your Bunn brewer due to the water sediments that have accumulated. The frequency depends on the hardness or mineral content of your water supply.


However, there is a need to wash the decanted and brew funnel after each use. You should also see to it that you wipe the outside part of the brewer, the part above the funnel with very mild dishwashing soap and a damp cloth.

To delime, unscrew the sprayhead and set aside. Make sure the brewer is unplugged and has cool down before deliming. First, remove the sprayhead and set is aside. Insert the deliming tool that came with the brewer into the sprayhead tube. Clean the tube with a push-pull motion to loosen the lime that has accumulated in the sprayhead tube. Add some force as you twist and push/pull the deliming tool.

See if the sprayhead has mineral deposits. If it has, clean the holes with a toothpick then clean it with mild dishwashing soap and rinse. Reinstall. You might want to fill the holding tank with a quart of vinegar and run one cycle then two -plain water cycle through the machine to really clean the holding tank, the funnel and sprayhead.

Bunn Coffeemaker Leaks

Some consumers have reported incidences of Bunn coffee maker leaks. The leaks are said to come from the bottom of the holding tank. Leaks were due to plastic deterioration around the holding tank’s washer.

Bunn has repair kits for this kind of trouble but more often than not, the company replaces defective products. Newer models might not have the same problem as their holding tanks are made of stainless steel.

Pros and Cons of Bunn Coffee Machines

Bunn BTX-B ThermoFresh 10-Cup instructions and review

Bunn coffee makers are great for parties as a great brew is possible in 3 minutes. There is no need for a thermal pot to keep the pot hot. There are models with burners to keep the brew hot too.

The coffee ground container is easy to pull out and dump the used grounds. The price is affordable. If the pot breaks, replacement is easy to find and cheap.

However, you need to buy a “Bunn” filter for a better brew. Using a generic filter will result in coffee grounds in your cup. Pots are brittle and easily break. Though you can definitely get a nice cup in 3 minutes, you need to plug and turn on the machine to keep it in stand-by mode, thereby wasting electrical power.

Nevertheless, Bunn is a very popular brand because it has a large range of coffee makers for home and commercial use.
