how we stack up
against the other guys
All commercial coffee brewers rely on internal hot water tanks to ensure their temperature and brew time are precisely dialed in.
Speed Brew is the only home coffee maker on the market with a commercial-grade stainless-steel tank.
This tank always has 70oz of hot water at your disposal, kept at 200º F, the commercially recognized ideal brewing temperature. And just like your water heater at home that always has hot water whenever you want it, Speed Brew’s tank is always ready to brew.
Compare this to other home coffee makers that use a "Burp and Boil" method to brew coffee, which heats your water up as you pour it in, "burping" it over your coffee grounds in spurts as the water boils.
Coffee grounds need to spend the right amount of time with hot water to give the final brew a balanced flavor. Brew too long and you’ll get a bitter or burnt tasting cup of coffee.
Because the tank is already full of water at the ideal brewing temperature, brewing can begin immediately. Instead of inconsistent spurts of boiling water, our temperature-controlled water passes over the grounds in one consistent flow. That’s why Speed Brew can brew 50oz in just four minutes.
Compare this to the Burp and Boil process: often takes anywhere from 8 to 14 minutes to boil over all the available water. Coffee grounds exposed to hot water for this long will contribute too many particles to the final brew, affecting everything from aroma to taste. If you’ve ever smelled burnt coffee, this is usually why.
In the world of professional coffee brewing, 200º F is considered the golden standard when it comes to the science of extracting the best flavor from grounds.
Thanks to the temperature-regulated tank, Speed Brew can shower the grounds with water that will extract a good balance of particles.
On Burp and Boil systems, the boiling water exceeds the recommended standard of 200ºF and can negatively impact flavor.
For the best tasting coffee, grounds should constantly be kept afloat and mingling throughout the brewing process.
Speed Brew has a patented sprayhead design that showers the entirety of the coffee grounds. And because of the hot water tank, all the water comes in one constant flow that thoroughly churns the entire bed of coffee grounds.
Remember those spurts in Burp and Boil systems? Well, as each spurt of boiling water goes over the grounds, only the top layers get saturated and mingle with the hot water. This often results in a portion of the grounds going unused every time you brew.
Tested in the same facilities as our commercial equipment, Speed Brew undergoes the same rigorous attention to detail.
We test them on every aspect of Time, Temperature, and Turbulence, to ensure you have the Best Result in the Cup™ at home.
Did you know BUNN engineers Speed Brew around a science-driven formula? For decades, we’ve tested around all the variables in the coffee brewing process to ensure your coffee is delicious. That’s why our coffee makers come with a recommended coffee grounds-to-water ratio of 10 tablespoons for 50oz of water.
