Trademark Speed Brew Technology
The BUNN My Cafe MCU prides itself on its trademark Brew Technology that promises to give you cafe and restaurant-quality coffee in the comfort of your own home with guidance from the 5 Ts.
First, it sets itself apart from the tank that is non-removable and is situated inside the coffee machine itself; this makes the coffee maker ready and always ready to brew in minutes.
The second is time; because of the internal tank that keeps the water in the ideal brewing time for 6 hours, this coffee maker will extract flavor from your coffee like it has been brewing for 4 minutes in under a minute!
Third, the water is always at the right temperature of 200 degrees Fahrenheit for optimum flavor extraction.
The fourth aspect of Brew Technology is the turbulence or the constant flow of perfect temperature water to make sure that every ground, loose tea leaves, or the entirety of the coffee pod are extracted with the proper pressure for optimum flavor.
The last is ensuring that every coffee maker passes their rigorous testing.
Versatile 4 Drawer System
There is a Cup drawer that can be used with your favorite K-cup-sized pods.
There is a Ground Coffee drawer to brew your favorite gourmet ground coffee.
A fantastic Pod drawer that can open the possibility of trying a wide variety of coffee pods flavor outside the usual K-cup pod sizes.
The last drawer is a water drawer that can make your coffee maker act like a hot water dispenser for ready hot water for your instant soup, your instant oatmeal, or for your hot cocoa.
Multiple Single-Cup Brew Sizes
The BUNN My Cafe MCU will let you brew your single-serve perfect coffee in a variety of sizes, from 4 to 14 fluid ounces;
Making this coffee maker perfect for people living alone or a couple living together.
Pulse Brew Technology
The BUNN My Cafe MCU features the Pulse Brew Technology that you can use when you want a stronger and more potent tasting coffee.
The Pulse Brew Technology combines the Time and the Turbulence feature of the Speed Brew Technology at its finest.
What it does is it soaks the coffee grounds with hot water for a bit of time before continuing the extraction and the flow of hot water in your ground coffee.
This soaking stage is called pre-fusion, and this will release the oils and other coffee compounds that will make your coffee more robust and rich tasting.
The Pulse Brew Technology of the BUNN My Cafe MCU will make every cup you make like a barista made it.
Energy Saving Function
The BUNN My Cafe MCU has an energy-saving function where the coffee machine automatically turns off without command after a period of 6 hours without use.
Who is it for?
The BUNN My Cafe MCU is for serial coffee drinkers who drink multiple cups a day and like more robust coffee varieties.
It is also for the college people who live in a dorm as the water dispenser feature can give you an appliance that is two for one.
The BUNN My Cafe MCU will also be perfect for office pantries, and this coffee machine works constantly and, unless left dormant for six hours, will keep working.
A potential drawback to this product is what makes this machine amazing— it is the ability of the coffee machine to stay working for six hours.
The machine has to keep running to keep its ideal water temperature to give you the constant flow of perfectly made coffee.
There is no on or off switch to this machine, so either you leave it unused for six hours or plug it out of the socket will turn it off.
The BUNN My Cafe MCU has an affordable price tag, caters to multiple kinds of beverages, and is an industrial-looking coffee maker that would fit with every interior kitchen design.
