Posted Tue Jun 4, 2013, 3:23am Subject: Re: So my Newco OCS12 just broke
I did two blind taste tests comparing my old Bunn BT10 with the new 64 oz. Technivorm Grand Coffee Maker with Thermal Carafe over the weekend (Saturday & Sunday). I used the same amount of fresh ground coffee from my Macap M4 Stepless/Doserless grinder (I also roast my own beans) and the same amount of water for each brewer in both tests.
I hate to say on both blind taste tests the Bunn won for flavor, richness and strength. You could even see the color of the brewed coffee from the Bunn was deeper than the Technivorm.
To say the least I was extremely disappointed!
I returned the 64 oz. Technivorm Grand Coffee Maker with Thermal Carafe yesterday to Williams Sonoma and ordered a Bunn Commercial grade CW15-TC Coffee Brewer with the Thermal Carafe. The Thermal carafe, as it turns out, is the Zojirushi carafe. This commercial Bunn brewer brews 64 oz. like the Technivorm Grand Coffee Maker. I got it from KaTom Restaurant Supply and it was cheaper (including shipping) than the Technivorm Grand Coffee Maker.
Here's an prior elaborate thread on CoffeeGeek from a members experience with the Bunn CW15-TC.
