How to make the best coffee at home without a coffee maker? 

Step by Step Instructions to buy the best coffee maker- 

When buying a coffee maker it is required to make sure which brewer is being purchased. The market is full of different models and types. 5 things you need to keep in mind before buying a coffee maker, cost, capacity, counter space, maintenance, and speed. 

 

  1. Capacity – uninterrupted supply to 12 cups and from 12 cups to one single serve. it depends on your need whether you need a coffee maker for a big firm, small restaurant or for personal use. 
  2. Counter space – which kind of coffee maker is going to be purchased depends on the bench space, whether you have a compact kitchen with minimum space or one with plenty of it.
  3. Cost – Buying an electrical appliance also depends on the budget and on the worth of the machine, whether you want to spend money in pieces thrice a year or once for years.

4.  Speed – some machines take 6 mins and some just 3 so you need to take the call, impatient coffee       lovers must go for the 3-minute option with good taste .

5.Maintenance – when we talk about the maintenance we are talking about long-term as the buyer is investing in a coffee maker which will last for years but if something happens to the brewer, like the warming plate needs to be replaced and then it would be good to go so you can simply go and get the warming plate replaced. Before buying make sure that the parts are easily available in the market

 

Here are some of our recommendations according to different needs and all the factors mentioned above.

Bunn VPR Commercial 12-Cup Brewer – this coffee maker is designed for a workplace where an uninterrupted supply of coffee is needed. it comes with 2 tanks, 2 warmers and 2 glass decanters and it is affordable. 

Bunn GRB Velocity Brewer- This machine comes with a capacity of making 4 to 10 cups within 3 minutes, well-designed funnel and porcelain coated warming plate.  

Bunn MCU – The Bunn MCU is one of the best single serves coffee makers, it has been in the picture for years now. it is flexible and even versatile in nature, it is even lighter in weight and has 4 different brewing trays

As you do not have a coffee maker right now let me help you make world’s best coffee without a coffee maker so that you get the best coffee until the time you buy the best maker-  

  1. Take a pan, place it on the stove,turn the stove on 
  2. Put some water in the pan, make sure you do not use the same amount of you usually use, use a little less than that.
  3. Once the water is boiled add coffee according to your preference but I can suggest if you have used 6ounces of water then you must use 2 tablespoons.
  4. Now cover your pan and turn the heat to it’s fullest, just wait for 4-5 mins 

5.That’s all pouring your coffee into the cups 

BUNN MCU Single Cup multi-use Home Coffee Brewer

Simplicity and versatility are two terms which easily define BUNN MCU, it has been in the picture for years now, in the category of single-serve MCU is one of the best in the market.

MCU not only makes the most delicious coffee but tea as well, convenient by nature comes with one-touch action, has two buttons one for normal brewing and the other one is the ‘pulse button’ which makes stronger coffee than the brew button, within a minute it can easily make 12 -14oz of coffee.

MUC has 4 trays

1. k-cup

2. coffee pod

3. Ground

4. Hot water tray

Brewing –

No experience is needed to use this brewer, with the brewer you get 4 drawers, each for different purpose one for hot water, one for k-cups, one for coffee pods, one for ground coffee and all four of these can be easily attached. As it has 4 different drawers for the different purpose there is no chance of mixing flavors to brew coffee attach one of the drawers to the machine, add water and simply press the button, for normal coffee press the brew button and for strong press the pulse button.

Remember when you press pulse button you won’t get your coffee within a minute as pressing pulse means that coffee grounds are going through pre-infusion where the acids of the grounds are getting released, it would take 2-3 minutes to give a bold flavor.

MCU brews coffee with 30 -60 seconds which is outrageously fast, 14oz within a Minutes time. It is recommended to turn it off after use as it doesn’t have energy saving mode it needs at least 120 volts.

Features-

BUNN MCU is known for its versatility, it comes with 4 different drawers, and attaching these drawers is very handy, in this coffee maker you can make great tea as well and for tea, the ‘pulse’ option is highly recommended.

Tea can be brewed in the pod tray, oats can be easily made with the help of hot water dispenser.

This brewer can do a lot of tasks, it can even blend espressos with the help of K-cups but definitely cant brew espressos.

Pros –

1. MCU has a removable drip tray which makes it easy to use travel mugs and even to clean it.

2. Outrageously fast brewing

3. MCU like other brewers by BUNN it also comes with an internal stainless steel tank which makes it highly durable.

4. There is no need to buy a filter for each use as it comes with mesh filter which can be cleaned after use.5.

5. This one machine has 4 drawers which mean 4 different beverages.

cons-

The water reservoir can’t be removed, there is a constant need for a refill and there is again no on/off switch, if there is water in the tank then it’s on to turn it off you need to unplug it.

a pod trays and k-cups is super easy as after use k-cups and pods can be thrown away, cleaning ground coffee drawer is a kind of problem as it takes time to clean it.

to unplug, users have complained that the k-cup drawer has an inconsistent sealing.

Conclusion –

This machine is flexible, versatile, simple, compact and durable. If you are not a big fan of espressos then you must go for BUNN MCU SINGLE SERVE MULTI-USE BREWER.

Different ways to clean your brewer

Anyone can buy a coffee maker but the real thing is maintaining it so that can live up to its words it not only about how it is made but about how we use it and how we keep it so here are some ways you can maintain your brewer without a lot of efforts all you need is a little bit of time and a little bit of patience and you are good to go

Ways to clean your brewer –

1. After each use cleaning

once you are done using your BUNN Brewer simply wash your decanters and your funnel that’s all apart from this you need to wipe your brewer simply with a cloth.

2. Deliming

heard about deliming ? if not you must today as it is required to be done every now and then, it helps in clearing all the deposits which get into the brewer from the water. whenever you plan to do this make sure you allow some time for your brewer to cool down.

a) if there is a spray head in your BUNN Brewer model genitally remove it, move it clockwise

b) you would have got deliming tools with your brewer it’s time to insert it in your brewer’s spray head tube.

c) you need to slide the deliming tool in and then out about 7 times so that if there is any lime it gets loosened.

d) pour some fresh water into your decanter and simply place it on the warmer with a close lid.

e) check if any holes are still closed in your spray head due to lime, if yes then you can use a toothpick to remove it.

3. Vinegar time

if you want your brewer to live up to 10 – 15 years then every 3rd month you need to clean it fully

i) you need to put one empty funnel in your brewer after this take white vinegar, one quart and simply pour it into the top of your brewer and after this, you need to close the lid. let it flow and when it stops flowing then you need to empty your decanter and after this leave your brewer for about two to three hours.

ii) It’s time to unplug your brewer and remove the spray head and the funnel, use a detergent and clean your spray head, use a cloth for this. pour cold water into your brewer and turn it on, do not forget to close the lid, make sure your decanter is empty and repeat this process seven to ten times.

iii) Taste the water if the water tastes like vinegar then repeat the process until the time it does not, when the water doesn’t taste like vinegar. hold your brewer from the back of it and turn it upside-down

To maintain your brewer after each use empty it, dont store water or coffee in it for too long and if in your area water quality is not good you must think about installing a water conditioner
