Rated 5 out of 5 by DJacob Serious Coffee Drinker?
(I have 7 coffee makers, 2 drip machines, 2 Keurig Platnum Plus K Cup machines a Keurig Rivo and a Ranchillio esprsso machine and a French Press so I really enjoy coffee.
So why did I purchase the Behmor Brazen Plus?
I also own the Behmour 1600 Plus Roaster. I purchased it to replace my I-Roast Air Roaster (check out my 5 star review)
Home brewing technology has evolved to a high level of sofistication in the last ten years. Most coffee makers on the market are simple, easy to use units. Fill the basket with coffee add the water and hit the button. Most coffee drinkers couldn't be bothered or care about setting temperatures, pre-soak time and quantity and total brew cycle time.
But the Brazen Plus is not made for the mainstream buyer. It is made for the specialty coffee consumer who wants to brew coffee to the highest standards, and who may want to tweak settings for individual coffees. And if you don't want to tinker a lot, you can set it once and enjoy excellent coffee too. -
When coffee is very fresh it contains naturally occurring gases that need to be released.
(I let my freshly roasted coffee beans rest for at least 48 Hours to allow full flavor from the coffee bean) That's really fresh coffee compared to some retail coffee that's at or near the end of it's shelf life OR already old and stale..
By satuating the ground coffee in heated water to saturate it.
allows the fresh coffee to "blooms" and this short period of time allows the gases to release. The fresher the coffee the longer the pre-soak required -
* Calibration for high elevations (I live 4,200 feet above sea level)
* Adjustable tempuratue control (190 to 210)
* Adjustable Saturation Time
These features are standard on the Behmor Brazen Plus
and not available on coffee makers costing $100.00 (or more) higher than tha Behmor Brazen Plus
The Behmor Brazen Plus. was voted Best New Product (People's Choice) SCAA 2012)
Now SCAA Certified. One of only just a few brewers to be certified by the rigorous standards of the Specialty Coffee Association of America and the first to meet its newest, more stringent temperature guidelines. -
