Posted Sat Mar 10, 2012, 7:59am Subject: Bunn Trifecta MB Owners' Thread
I am starting this thread as a home base for owners to add their tips, tricks, likes, dislikes, etc. Owners can note the brew parameters that work for each coffee they try. I am not yet an owner, but am having a hard time not ordering the machine.
I also hope that Lisa from Bunn will monitor this thread and respond to questions.

Well, mine arrived today. I got an email this morning with tracking info and noting that it would arrive today. They got it out as promised.
The packaging is non nondescript, which is fine actually. Double boxed.
Set it up, primed it per directions and never heard the heater kick in. Heart sank for a minute and ran a few more 12 oz fills thru it. It actually took 5 - 12 oz fills (instead of the 2 per instructions) before the heater kicked in. Whew!
I have only tried two variations of coffee so far at the recommended settings. Some Costa Rica at the 'C' turbulence setting and :45 for the infusion time. Outstanding. Very balanced taste. Next was Guatemala at the suggested 'E' :45. Again, delicious. Nice and sharp.
It's nice to have two brew chambers included. Should seriously add to the convenience factor. The included scale is, well, functional. Nothing extraordinary, but certainly appreciated.
Really can't wait to put the time in with setting variances. So much potential here.
