Braun KF7150BK Brew Sense Drip Coffee Maker
Braun KF7150BK Brew Sense is the brand new intuitive, user friendly and compact 12 cup drip coffee maker for those that enjoy the traditional drip type coffee. It comes with a very large LCD display that shows time as it has the 24 hour programmability with a reliable clock, auto on and off, 1 – 4 cup and cleaning function and it is quite easy to set up and use. With the Pure Flavor Brewing you are promised to get great coffee with good taste consistently. You can make up to 12 cups of coffee in its easy pour glass FlavorCarafe with a unique carafe lid that seals in all the aroma and flavours of fresh coffee at just the right temperature- it makes decent hot coffee. You can even choose the strength of your coffee with the Bold Strength Selector by which you can select either bold or regular, whichever you prefer. The brew, auto on/off, clock, set, clean, 1-4, strength and temp buttons, large LCD screen and internal water level indicator are all there to make it more user-friendly. You will receive a black scoop for measuring coffee and permanent gold tone filter, charcoal water filter to get rid of any impurities or you can simply use pre-filtered water in it. You are also welcome to use disposable paper filters too which many people don’t prefer as reusable filter that comes with it is great.
You can pause it in the middle of brewing and thanks to the anti-drip system on the easy-pour glass carafe and the ledge at the rear section that gathers the condensation, you will have no spilling of water or any coffee mess on your bench. Programmability of timer up to 24 hours means you will have coffee whenever you need it- especially first thing in the morning when you wake up. Braun Brew Sense looks elegant and pretty in two tone piano black and stainless steel, with the easy to read buttons and extra large LED panel in the middle add to its modern appearance, weighs 7.1lbs with measurements of 7.9 x 7.9 x 14.2 inches- doesn’t occupy a lot of space on your bench and can be stored easily in your cabinet. Where you put in the water is not very clear at first so you should read the manual for instructions or watch the video on the product page. It has the Keep Warm function after coffee making is completed but it doesn’t stay on for very long not to burn the coffee and destroy the flavours but don’t expect it to be warm after two or three cups. It is great being able to make many cups of coffee at once for your guests (or just one for you) and to be able to adjust the strength for those that prefer milder or stronger. With the integrated 60 second back-up it will save your settings in case of a power cut, which can be quite handy especially if you get them often. Braun Brew Sense is a great quality and functional drip coffee maker and very good value overall.
