      Great Product For Under $100

      Posted

      This coffee maker is absolutely fantastic. This coffee provides crisp, clean, strong tasting coffee. The filter provides a very clean tasting drink. I've tested it using water from a filter and then water from the sink. The water here in Florida has chlorine in it which provides a horrible taste usually. This machine made my drink taste incredible. I would have to say that it has a better taste than when I use bottled water. This product is very, very simple to set-up and use and the instructions are very straightforward and easy to comprehend. Like any product though, this has both Pros and Cons: Pros: Easy to Set Up -- This machine didn't need any complex setting up or putting together. The instruction booklet showed how to set up the filter and run it through the initial cleaning process. After that, the coffee maker was ready to go. Under $100 -- It maker provides terrific quality without breaking the bank. I've used many coffee makers that have cost well over $100 and I would have to say that this coffee maker out-performed them. Easy to Make Drinks -- This maker does not require any complex processes to make your drink. You put the water in the reservoir that is located on the side of the maker and measure one scoop (with the scoop) per cup of water. You measure out how bold and how hot you want your drink to be. That's it! You press the button to brew it and it will brew. Nothing complicated about it. Attractive Design -- It is very ergonomically designed. It does not take up much space at all. Overall, it takes up a little more space than a Pickle Jar. The square design makes it easy to slide onto the counter and it does not have a funky shape or have pieces that hang over. The black and white make it meld into the rest of my kitchen appliances and it flows with my kitchen. Cons: The Karaffe -- It feels cheap. The glass feels very thin and I am afraid that I will break it when I use it. I know that it is sturdy glass and it will not, but I feel like they could have made the glass feel more secure and not as thin. The Filter -- I love the filter on this product but I feel like rebuying the filter multiple times a year makes this a hassle. It also bothers me that there are no extra filers included. So when my product expires I'm automatically going to be out of pocket because I will have to buy more. It's also a bigger problem because the filters do not have a long lifetime. It's one thing to have to continuously keep on buying an aspect for this product, but 6 times a year is absolutely ridiculous. More Features -- I feel like this product puts too much on the filter aspect. There are other products that have more features that sell for the same price. For example, the Ninja Coffee Bar sells for the same price and has a plethora of features. I feel like this coffee maker depended too much on the filter. I feel like it should have a mug feature. Now, this product does have one to four cup brewing, but you HAVE to use the Karaffe. I am spoiled to other brands, they have the feature to where I can set my mug down and it can fill up my mug directly. I do not have to dirty two dishes. Overall, I am a fan of this product, I like that I can get hard-filtered water and experience the full taste of my coffee. I do loathe the fact that I will have to continue to buy filters. I would like my products to be a "One and Done" type of thing. I feel like if you value the taste of your coffee and really want to let the full flavors come to life this is for you. This is not a bad product whatsoever, I just feel like in this day and age that there is some real competition in the coffee maker market. The fact that this does not have more features does low a blow. Excluding those two things, this is an amazing maker that I have put away my other products for. I love that this has made me taste the full flavors of my coffee and it is a delight drinking from it each morning.

      Good Coffee Maker

      Posted

      I was interested in testing the Braun BrewSense to see if their claim to rich, reliable coffee would be fulfilled and it was. I’m testing the BrewSense Drip Coffee Maker - 12 Cup - KF7150. The coffee maker appears to be very well made and a quality coffee maker. The KF7150 is the middle coffee maker of the 3 different 12cup Braun BrewSense coffee makers. The only difference I can see between the KF7150 and the top end KF7170 is the materials used in the build. To test the; 1-4, Strength, and Temp (warmer) settings I used the exact same measured amounts of filtered water, measured amounts of coffee grounds (1tbls per cup), milled at the same grind setting for each test. PureFlavor Technology: Consistent great flavor from the first to last drop is one of Braun’s claims. As with all coffee makers if you sneak a cup prior to the finish of the brew it is going to be a stronger cup of coffee than it will be if you let the pot brew complete. FlavorCarafe: Would be hard to determine how beneficial this is without making coffee in two different coffee makers and test this statement. Anti-Drip System: The anti-drip system is better than any coffee maker I’ve used, you may get one miniscule drip which is expected any time you have heat and liquid. Programmable 24-Hour Timer: Worked perfect every time. Be sure to follow the instructions thoroughly. Programmable Auto Off: Another nice feature because you can adjust the AUTO OFF time to suit your needs. Still in the process of testing the difference times and I have had one issue, I set the AUTO OFF to 30 minutes and it shut off after 23 minutes. Two independent timers were used when testing this feature. I’m not sure if the warmer timer starts at the beginning of the brew or after the brew is complete. Brew Strength Selector: I did not find as great a difference between the brew cycle REGULAR and BOLD however there is a slight difference. REGULAR: Cups Brewed 12, Brewing Time 9min. 37sec., Coffee Temp During Brew 188.0, Coffee Temp Brew Complete 182.8, Warmer Setting Medium. BOLD: Cups Brewed 12, Brewing Time 11min. 3sec., Coffee Temp During Brew 184.5, Coffee Temp Brew Complete 182.5, Warmer Setting Medium Keep Warm Plate: Very cool feature. There is a significant difference between LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH. If you are the only person drinking a pot of coffee you can start your full pot off on HIGH, drop to MEDIUM when you get to the half pot, and then LOW when you have less coffee left in the pot and save overheating your coffee. I would recommend this product to my friends and family.

      You'll LOVE this coffee maker!

      I have been using my Braun BrewSense KF7150BK for a couple of weeks now. I was really exited! This is my first new coffee maker in a long time. I still had an old one that I would use paper filter with and had no timer. I've been wanting to upgrade for awhile now but just didn't know what one to but when the Braun BrewSense KF7150BK fell into my lap. It was very easy to set up. The coffee tastes so much better than my old coffee maker. It must be the built in water filtration system. It has an easy to set up timer so it's already brewing when I get up in the morning. I love the anti- drip feature. Sometimes I'm up before the timer finishes so being able to grab a cup of coffee without having to wait for the whole pot to brew was a big win for me. I like the gold built in reusable filter. So much better & cost effective than paper filters. However, when you get to the bottom of the pot of coffee there is a thick sludgy substance mixed with coffee grounds. I never had that while using paper filters. The coffee makers sleek design & the two tone black and stainless steel finish was nice. It matched perfectly with my other appliances in my kitchen. If you love coffee, then you'll love this coffee maker! "This product has been put at my disposal for no compensation and in order to share my honest and unbiased opinion.

      The Braun Experience

      I recently got an opportunity to review the above Braun Coffee maker in home and all I had to do was give my honest opinion since I am addicted to coffee on a daily basis. I wanted to experience during the 4 weeks I was allowed to test the above product is a stronger brew with the consistency of ordering a starbucks coffee in my own home. And to my great surprise every day at 5:30 a.m. as I entered my kitchen I could smell the strong aroma of Maxwell House filling my home. I loved it. I used Braun coffee maker to great me in the morning as I rise and in the evening when I was tired from fighting traffic and needed a boost to finish the day with my family. The Braun coffee maker is easy to use but deliver quality brewing for coffee lovers as myself. It allows me to brew from 1 to 4 cups at a time. I invited all my family over for dessert and the Braun Coffee Maker was the center of attention. I am so happy with the results I am going to go out and buy one for myself. Thank you Review Club for this great opportunity. "This product has been put at my disposal for no compensation and in order to share my honest and unbiased opinion.

      Feature Packed

      Posted
      edbo316

      If you love coffee then this is the machine for you. Let me start off by saying that I normally use a Keurig for my everyday coffee machine. With that said for a normal drip coffee machine this one packs a lot of nice features that most other coffee machine don't offer. Before I get into the features let me just say that this coffee maker is easy to use. I had no problem hooking it up and I was able to figure out all of the features/options without having to go to the instructions manual for help. With that said there are some nice features packed into this very good looking coffee maker. One being the option to brew a small pot of coffee using the 1-4 cup option. That is a very nice feature for me as like I said I come from a Keurig where I make one cup of coffee at a time. Another nice feature is the ability to choose the strength of the coffee. There is a regular and a bold option which allows you to play around to try and get the flavor you are looking for. Also do just that, play around with the options and I even had to do some trial and error with the amount of coffee in relation to the amount of water to get the flavor I was looking for. There is even a plate temperature option to have the coffee stay at the right temperature for you when sitting in the pot. Not only does this coffee maker look good but its very easy to use and does a great job at making coffee. I would recommend this one if you are in the market for a new coffee maker as I was quite surprised by the features this one offers. Please note "This product has been put at my disposal for no compensation and in order to share my honest and unbiased opinion. Once I have completed my testing it will be returned to the manufacturer."

      Great coffee maker by Braun

      Posted

      I'm a coffee lover, I can't start my day without a good cup of coffee and the Braun BrewSense just made my day. The quality of this coffee maker is great, love the black and grey design with green accents LCD display, so easy to operate, I didn't even read the instructions the features that I like the most are the 1-4 cups when there is only me around, the mug to go is a perfect size to take out, and love the permanent filter, so no more filters to buy ever, the strength option to make your cup bold or regular is amazing and lastly the feature that you can controle the temperature: low, medium or high, it also provides a cleaning cycle than no other coffee makers ever had, and I also like to mention that it also provides a charcoal filter, I can't think of something else that this coffee maker already provides, maybe more green accents to make it look more chic but other that this is perfect .. I definitely would recommend this product to anyone, I always go trough many coffee makers but they always break or get old quickly, I hope I don't have to look for a new one for a long time thanks to Braun, Please feel free to contact me on this forum if you have any questions about this product, I'll be happy to answer any questions on something I may missed in my review ...

      Beautiful coffeemaker with good coffee

      The Braun KF7150 was my 2nd coffeemaker and oh boy, I love this coffeemaker. I seldom write reviews for products and this is one I wanted to write as this has been one of the few products that I love to use and look forward to each day. I'm a coffee addict and drink atleast 3 cups a day , everyday for almost the last 15 years. This coffeemaker has got a beautiful design which looks luxurious in my kitchen and makes great coffee consistently. There are so many settings that helps you personalize the coffee you make and also when you want to have it. Its got a lot of programmable features for determining the strength of the coffee (light, medium and bold), temperature. The one thing that I love this coffee machine is that it allows you to prepare smaller amounts of coffee as I usually prepare 3 to 4 cups daily instead of the 12 cups that the machine allows you to do. Also the consistency of the taste everyday makes it stand apart as I've never had a day where the coffee was tasting different from the previous day. The only cons that I can think of is that it is a little loud sometimes when it brews. Note: This product has been put at my disposal for no compensation and in order to share my honest and unbiased opinion. Once I have completed my testing it will be returned to the manufacturer.

      Simple and works

      Nowadays any single house machine seems to be like a gadget with so many buttons to push and codes to read. But not the BraunSense coffee maker, it excels by its simplicity. It does what it's suppose to do, brew a nice and hot cup of coffee right now or at the time you desire (nothing like waking up with the smell of fresh-brewed coffee). We used to have Tassimo, that isn't bad at all, but can become quite expensive when choosing the better brand t-cups. By using regular coffee beans, we can now enjoy the best aromas without braking the bank. It's solidly built, easy to clean, and makes good, hot coffee. If looking for a simple and practical coffee machine, we definitely recommend it. "This product has been put at my disposal for no compensation and in order to share my honest and unbiased opinion.
