Question
We just replaced a 20-plus year old Bunn drip coffee maker.  We replaced it with a VPR-VPS coffee maker, pour-over style with 2 warmers.  The dispenser (carafes) are 12-cup capacity.  If we make a smaller batch (i.e. 6 cups) will this cause a problem with the next full batch?  Our old maker would sometimes either overflow or short the next full batch.
Thanks

Dr. Brew,

I head up a coffee ministry at my church and in my personal quest for a better cup of coffee, about 1.5 years ago, we invested in an ICB Twin Tall brewer along with an MHG grinder system. The quality from where we came from is by far better but I feel as if it could be even better, I am ready to take it to the next level. Given we selling coffee to raise money for missions, I want to extract the most

Hello,

I received the above named coffee maker today. When I put in the pod drawer with no pod, it works great. When I add a homemade pod, water leaks from the sides. After talking with Bunn customer service, they said I cannot use my homemade pods, only pre-made bought commercial ones. I tried different grinds, very coarse to fine, and that did not help. I also tried 2 kinds of pods, to no avail.

A home customer writes:

"I had an interesting conversation about how much coffee should be measured for each (6 oz) cup. I maintain that 2 TB is the correct coffee measure according to many coffee merchants, and I use this guideline unless the package states otherwise."

The fine folks in the Bunn Laboratory have concluded that with our coffees, 1TB of

Hey there-
Just setting up a new ICB Twin Tall for a new cafe and trying to trouble shoot a few things. I can't seem to get far on the Programming function. Not letting past the Brew Lockout in Level 1, can't figure out how to get into Level 2...

Also, I am wondering what ratio coffee to water you are recommending for 1/2 size and full batches? I will be grinding fresh on demand from a Ditting K804.

Hello Dr. Brew! My name's Austin and I run a coffee shop/brewery in Silverton, CO. One of the customer service reps gave me your email in hopes you could help me with some questions about my old (but new to me) Bunn Dual.


I must preference we're above 9000 ft and we had to tinker quite a bit with our single head fetco to brew good

We have a Bunn here at work. It is not used during the weekend, but we leave the system on during the weekend. Each Monday morning, we pour the pitcher full of water into the tank and we only get about a half pot of coffee. We are assuming this is due to water vaporizing out of the system during the weekend.


What do you suggest we do on Monday

Question

Hi,


We are expanding our concession business and want to add iced tea, offering sweet and un-sweet with infused flavorings. Our quantity will be large as we serve a number of area festivals and fairs. A majority of events are served from a trailer but a few we are required to work from a tent so plumbing to a water line is an issue. What unit(s) would be recommended and are there any models that water could be manually added

Question

Dear Dr. Brew,
I am going to buy the CWTF15 brewing system. Finances are at a minimum and I hope that my coffee shop picks up over time. What I would really like to know is, can I bring the hot water into the brewing system? I noticed that it will take time to get the brew system back up to temperature after the first cycle. If I bring in hot water, would this not reduce the recovery time?
Thanks for the help in this matter.
Douglas
