Figured out the reason the latch did not wake it up.  I did not have a brew chamber in it.  If the brew chamber is in the machine then moving the latch will wake it up.

To get mine to awaken, I put the chamber on and slightly lower, then raise, the latch. Pushing the button also works.

How long should it run after the main press out is done? It seems like the press out continues for awhile.  During this time a little more coffee is pressed out in spurts.  I am sure it is probably normal but I was just curious.  How much sediment do people get in there cup?  I usually just swirl the cup while I am drinking, but if I don't there is a fair amount of sediment.  Thanks for the help.  I love the coffee this machine makes.

It does run for a good number of seconds after press-out, so yours is likely completely normal.

Some sediment, less-than French Press for sure.

Yup, and I've found sediment is bean- and grind-dependent, too. Sometimes there's virtually nothing at the bottom of the mug.

**Trouble alert**: the blue light around my brew button went out! The machine still works normally otherwise; maybe some people would consider this a blessing in disguise, but my wife loved the blue glow. Amanda's calling the MB home to IL for a general check-up since this apparently hasn't happened before.

Every time my MB has had to visit the Bunn Mothership, it was short and painless. LED lights should have a very long life, so something might have wiggled loose. Now you can pay a little attention to your other brewing devices, I'm sure they miss you!  Take care!

I am a current technivorm owner, older model who has served me proudly for over 7 years. Thinking of making a new purchase for the Trifecta MB.  Haven't found many newer reviews (ie 2013). Would the folks who have purchased recently chime in if they are still content and feel it was money well spent ?  Especially since the $50 rise in price. I would be pairing it with a baratza encore. Anyone think this grinder would not work or should I upgrade?  I didn't really see the benefit for the extra money for the virtuoso or precisio. Thanks in advance.

Thanks, Jim. I've been using the Clever dripper a lot. Sean, I'll let some of the newer MB owner's club members chime in since I'm now apparently an old-timer. ;)

Haha. I think it's great that your still brewing with the trifecta. I'm just wondering if anybody has come from a technivorm to the trifecta and what were there thoughts. I know I'll have to get used to the 12oz max but it seems to brew quickly so not that much wait time for a great cup.

Also ABT has a $25/off $200 coupon making the trifecta $525 if anybody is on the fence. I think it does expire today 8/18 though. Code. TYM08R17P

I still love the Tri, but I never had a high quality drip machine to compare.

Where are you located? Maybe someone with the machine is close to you.
