Bunn trifecta MB home brewer now available (with review)

Postby jbviau » Tue Feb 07, 2012 11:29 pm

Exciting news comes to us via Amanda Crossland at Bunn: their trifecta MB home brewer will be available at http://www.bunnathome.com beginning 2/24/12 for $499. The official product launch will be at CoffeeCon the following day with a hands-on "Micro Brew lab" (hence the MB, I'm assuming; more info.)

Here's what we know so far, courtesy of Amanda:

"The trifecta® MB for home use utilizes the same patented Air Infusion™ technology as the commercial model trifecta to unlock each flavor note for a smooth, deep-bodied coffee or tea experience. The resulting beverage, called Full Cup, is a unique, amplified microbrew beverage that the coffee or tea lover can customize to enhance natural flavors from individual coffee and tea origins."

- Utilizes patented Air-Infusion™ technology to produce a rich, Full Cup of coffee or tea
- Enhances taste and body with adjustable Turbulence Cycle and Infusion Time controls
- Allows you to adjust for perceived acidity, sweetness, earthy flavors, extraction level, and mouth feel
- Presses coffee or tea through a fine-gauge metal filter, preserving oils and aromatics
- 25 unique brew setting combinations

The only user review I can find so far is glowing, by CoffeeCon's organizer: http://coffeecompanion.com/2012/02/bunn ... me-review/

Sign me up! Truly looking forward to learning more and, hopefully, getting my hands on one to put through its paces.

This will be at CoffeeCon 2012 so I will report back what I think about the results in the cup. I look forward to what it can do even if the sticker price is a bit steep.

Amanda confirms that the machine does *not* have a built-in grinder, despite what has been posted elsewhere online. I'm glad to hear this, actually, since all-in-one machines tend to have high failure rates from what I've seen and read.

The trifecta MB seems to be all about single-cup quality as opposed to, say, convenience. Still, Eric, if you're feeling cheeky at CoffeeCon you might consider tossing a pod into the brew chamber while nobody's looking and seeing what happens. :twisted:

Eric, make sure you get some pics and vids!

$499 is a steep price. I was hoping for $299 or so. We will see if it can beat the Clever Coffee Dripper.

Seems like a French Press with air blowing the grounds around?

Yes, it kinda does! Maybe I will pick up an aquarium pump and try it with my CCD.

Put a fish in there, too! They like bubbles.

More info. from Amanda (thanks!):

"The trifecta MB has a die-cast frame. The front and back housing of the machine is made out of a durable ABS plastic blend. The brew chamber is made of the same high performance plastic as the commercial trifecta. Other parts include a stainless hot water tank, aluminum knobs, and LED lights.

Clean-up after each brew involves knocking grounds out of the brew chamber and rinsing. We also recommend running water-only brews on a regular basis and periodic vinegar cleaning. The brew chamber and water reservoir are dishwasher-safe."
