Must have missed it.  Where did he say that?

At that price point he would move a lot of brewers.

Missy..

Thanks for the kind words..

Height of the unit is appx. 15.5" inches which should, we found, give you plenty of room to slide the unity under the cabinet when finished. In fact it is slightly lower than the large Kitchen Aid mixer you see so often on the counters.

Carafe is all metal and from testing done by those far smarter than I and with palates more refined than mine no issues were brought to our attention about residual after tastes. As ro the heat retention, that was one thing noted by many at the SCAA Expo that the coffee stayed hot for a long time afetr brewing, with no adverse effects..and it is very easy to open..

Hope that answers your questions and again do thank you for the kind words/ comments...

Thank you, Joe! I appreciate it! 15.5" sounds like a good height. I appreciate the info about the carafe. Thanks again and congrats on your baby! :^)

Craig,

I'm thinking that this new brewer is more hi-tech than most.

I posted a previous thread about a Panasonic Thermo-pot  to replace a kitchenaid Instant hot.  Using a Kill-A-Watt meter I watched what it was doing:  Switching from 700w (full heat) to 75w (maintenance), going to 'reboil' when cold water was added, controlling accurately at set-point etc.  

I have come to a conclusion that it must have some sort of PLC-on-a-chip and a SSR to switch noiselessly.

I wonder if the BraZen is the first coffee-brewer to use this stuff to achieve all the great activities Joe describes.

You have been into the innards of some of this stuff.  What do you think?

Yes, I'd say! ;) I've/we've (CG community) have not seen anything like it for the home market, but only on big EXPENSIVE commercial equipment.

I did read your post & check out the machine as soon as you had posted it Jerry.

I think you're right.

I believe Joe Behm said that it is (home market).

You have been into the innards of some of this stuff.  What do you think?

No, nothing like this on a home unit! {:-o

To our knowledge..

No systems commercial or otherwise have:
1) On board calibration
2) Calibration per Altitude


No consumer versions for drip/ auto have:
1) Pre-wet cycle
2) Pre-wet adjustable time setting
3) Variable temperature settings in increments of 1F (or 1C)
4) Brew cycle- Staggered/ pulse water release emulating in ways a pour over
5) Manual over ride for releasing as user decides w/ count up for both, valve open and valve closed
6) Steel reservoir for heating and water storage
7) Glide in feature for temperature control

I'm off to Asia next week to release the beast from it's cage...

 
REMINDER: Never leave the roaster unattended when in use !!   And remember to use our Rosetta Stone tip PART V PARAGRAPH 3.. it works !!!

If they can keep the price in Canada to under 300.00 count me in. Looks like a new benchmark in coffee brewing for sure. I have already been in touch with Green Beanery here in toronto who doesn't have (or won't publish) a price yet for Canada retail.

No pricing has been formally released to anyone as of yet.. and would be a bit surprised if GB was even close to 300CAD. One firm in Canada sent us a PO without a price just to get in line..

Should be good fun...

Thanks Joe, one last question....as I am mostly a single cup guy, is the BraZen designed to brew say 400ml (13.5oz) of water at a minimum for a single mug? Have a good trip overseas.
