That was the temp he measured without ground coffee. Wouldn't adding grounds significantly reduce that temperature further?

I don't know. Someone would need to test that.

I did an experiment with the only similar machine I have, a Keurig B60. This machine brews at 192.

I put a digital thermometer in the cup and ran a water cycle through it. With an unheated cup, immediately after the pour the temperature was 181. This dropped to 155 in less-than 1 minute.

With a pre-heated cup the temp was 187, only dropping to 176 in the first minute.

EDIT: I did another run with the Clever Coffee Dripper: Starting temp 201.5 >>> After 3 minutes 187.5 >>> After pouring into cup 156.

Well, my Trifecta arrived today. I hadn't even realized it was shipped! Very nicely packaged, beautiful machine.

I have had 2 cups thus far. I am going to be experimenting for quite some time!  By the way, the temp in a heated cup is 172.

Mine arrived the same day I got tracking info.......Bunn should change that. Give people a heads-up.

Thanks for the temp info...I will pre-heat the morning mug(s). My travel mug is sealed insulated, so good there.

Enjoy away.

Bill, you still may want to heat up the travel mug. It will help.

Josh, so far I have made about 5 cups, and it is fantastic. This morning I brewed 12 oz of a Guatemalan that was bout 1 month old, so not the freshest. I brewed it on E, 50 seconds using 30 grams of coffee, so 2.5 grams/oz. It was excellent.

I had an interesting event occur tonight. I was doing a brew, and the output seemed sluggish, like something was clogging the output path. it then sounded as if there was an air leak and stopped. I did a cleaning cycle, then all seemed well.

I also discovered that lifting the latch will start the heating process when it is in sleep mode. You can do this while preparing the grind and it will be ready.

Hopefully just an anomaly.

Nothing but great coffee so far...and hope it's that way for a long trouble free time.

Before I go out and spend $500, I would like to know how it compares to a vac pot.

That is the next comparison I would like to see. A Vac pot is probably the only coffee making device type I do not have.

I will say that making cups repeatedly will be much easier with the "Tri."
