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.
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
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.
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.
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 Answer
