For Those of You Who Love Strong Coffee by Merwin

Updated on March 25, 2012

This was copied and pasted from my FaceBook Status an original by me.

We have a Bunn Coffee Maker. Anyone familiar with this coffee maker knows that once you load up your grounds and pour in the water in the water and shut the lid... in less than three minutes you have a full pot of coffee.

But... if you like really strong coffee (like me) it requires more grounds, which in a Bunn, means water coming in too quick causes an over flow.


The Bunn has a door you open to pour in the water and its when you shut that door that it lets the hot water pour onto the grounds thereby brewing your elixir o life.

Put as much ZAX Columbian (I use fine ground) as you may... strong as you like, into your Bunn Coffee Maker, pour in your water... then shut the water door for between 10 to 15 seconds (the more grounds, the less time) and you will not have the overflow.

This means however, you will have to do it in stages. With each time the door is shut it adds cool water to the reservoir, so you should let the sounds of the heating element stop before opening the door again and continue to repeat the process for a full pot.

Instead of having your coffee in 3 minutes (normal for a Bunn), it will take about 10 minutes, or about the same as a normal coffee maker.

While this is a little more labor intensive, the result is very strong coffee and if you use ZAX Columbian, it will never be bitter, it is without a doubt the best Coffee I ever bought... anywhere. index

      I found this extremely intersesting. I love my coffee, but who knows, your s may be even better. It is hard to beat a Bunn.

      If you are a true coffee lover, you will appreciate this from the Puzzlers (local Florida Band). It's the anthem for those who want their "joe".
