Bunn Home Coffee Makers for High Altitude
At first glance, it looks exactly the same as the normal Bunn BX-B. It’s still the same high quality coffee maker. It also boasts the same vintage look of the normal BX coffee maker.
The high altitude version of the Bunn BX Coffee Maker is recommended for those who live at altitudes of 5,000+ feet above sea level.
At high altitudes, water boils at a lower temperature. Furthermore, the high altitude thermostat prevents the water from being heated continuously.
The Bunn BX High Altitude Coffee Maker is also built with Bunn’s patented brewing technology. First, it preheats water to the optimal brewing temperature.
Its internal thermostat keeps the water at brewing temperature even when the coffee maker is idle. Therefore, it dramatically eliminates the need to wait for the water to heat up.
Second, it boasts the patented sprayhead design, which is efficient in extracting coffee flavor. Not only does it do a good job of extracting the essential oils and flavors form the coffee grounds, but it is also able to do so in such a short time.
As a result, it can brew 10 cups of coffee in just 3 minutes. To keep the coffee warm, you may switch on the porcelain-coated warming plate by toggling the switch mounted at the front of the coffee maker.
Set the Bunn coffee pot on the warming plate to keep the brewed coffee at the optimal serving temperature. Its other features include a vacation switch.
When toggled, the Bunn Home Coffee Maker BX High Altitude lowers the temperature of the preheated water inside the water tank. If you’re not going to use it for a long time, it’s best to switch the vacation switch on.
To clean this coffee maker, just remove and wash the filter basket, sprayhead, and decanter in mild detergent and rinse well with water. Like other Bunn home coffee makers, the Bunn BX-B HA also comes with a deliming spring, which you can use for maintenance and cleaning purposes.
You can use the deliming spring to probe the sprayhead tube for any accumulated mineral deposits that come from the water. Bunn is known for making reliable, high quality home coffee makers.
Therefore, if you maintain this coffee maker well, you can be sure that this will serve as the source for your home brewed coffee for a long time.
