I'm really enjoying how wonderful a cup really can be. Glad I purchased this brewer and can't rave enough about how wonderful a cup of coffee can be. I've had every kind of brewed coffee from cowboy filtered through a tee shirt to this awesome machine. I've roasted beans for friends and family and they all love the my roasts. High praise for this machine indeed. Glad I found it.

The settings are easy to dial in and fun to play around with. The coffee is so much smoother and fuller than with a regular brewer. I live at around 7300ft elevation and I bought this model for the elevation setting. The hottest I can brew is 196°F (water boils at a lower temperature up here). What an absolute delight to wake up to such an impeccable cup of coffee! It beeps when brewing is complete, other than that the only sound is the water boiling, which is quiet. No gurgling. I've been using it for about 10 days and am absolutely in love with it. No regrets on the price tag, it is a simple way to treat myself in a big way, everyday.

I can't understand the bad reviews for this SCAA approved brewer that Joe Behmor ended because he no longer wanted to pay for the certification. I can't think of a drip machine that doesn't have a plastic basket, with that said you can brew into a carafe and filter just like a pour over with this machine, sans basket. As far as China goes, I agree but you really need to elect America first candidates who will bring manufacturing back to the USA; otherwise everything will be made somewhere else. Behmor has the best customer service ever. I own the 2.0 and a roaster and have spoken with Joe a few times, the last time he sent me a new lid for the pot; free. This brewer is fantastic and brews a wonderful cup of coffee, and at 200 bucks; jump on it now.

Great machine. I had the 2.0 and bought the 3.0 and took my 2.0 to use at work. All Behmor products are great.

Mostly I drink pour overs. But I wanted a drip machine for convenience and when company arrives. My goal was too make coffee close to pour over quality which is a hard act to follow for a drip machine. But I must say, I did brew a tasty cup. My best cup for the Brazen is as follows: Course grind allows a little richer and sweeter cup in my opinion. 66 grams course ground fresh coffee 206F Water Temperature Setting 1:30 Pre-soak Setting Give it a try or tweek!

It was shipped quickly and works as described. I found it easy to program and use, and I found no hint of a plastic taste mentioned in some other reviews. I particularly like that the water is heated immediately before brewing so no energy is wasted because I live on a Caribbean island where electricity is expensive. I also like that it will correctly brew a small quantity of coffee, not just a full pot.

1. Plastic basket is a deal breaker. offees reeking of plastic are out. 2. I am a lover of coffee oil, so filters are out.

Great brewer. I've been a pour-over guy for a long time. Finally broke down and bought the Brazen 3.0, It has all the control of a pour-over, and you can brew more than 1 cup at a time, The thermal carafe keeps the coffee at a warm temp until consumed. I also have a Behmor roaster, and I know the company has good customer service, Highly recommended. James Hoffman gave it a good review, and he knows a lot more about coffee than me!

Does all the hard work of a great Barista! Producing a rich round cup. A little slower than my MoccaMaster but a better spray head overall.

Great coffee maker!! Being able to adjust the brew temp, pre soak the grounds and calibrate for altitude, makes for a great brew!!! Living over a mile high, getting the brew temp adjusted has made for full flavor profiles for the beans. Highly recommend for anyone looking to have adjustability in the brew process.

I have used this coffee machine for a couple of weeks and absolutely LOVE it. It makes the best cup of coffee, keeps it perfectly and unchanged for hours and it is soooooo easy to set up and operate! The best coffee machine I have owned and I have owned many, some a lot more expensive than this. Also, Coffee Bean Corral was wonderful. They shipped it right away and I got the machine within a few days even though I live in a “rural” area which adds days to any delivery.

My Cuisinart rusted out after many years and my son recommended I get a thermal brewer. He has this one and loves it. I have been equally pleased with the product

It makes a good cup of coffee but I typically only brew 4-6 cups and it just isn't hot enough in the carafe. Also, you kind of have to take the whole thing apart and lay it out so everything dries, every time you brew. Not sure it's worth the money over a Mr. Coffee.

I love this coffee brewer. The coffee is just the way I like it hot and strong. It stays hot in the stainless steel carafe. Without the burned taste of the hot plate.

Before I started this journey (raw bean to cup), I considered myself to be a coffee snob. What I have discovered is that there are levels of coffee snobbery. It has been only recently (at 74 years old) that I have discovered the adventure involved in roasting my own beans. My library of coffee related books has increased from zero to ? in a very short time. My half pound inventory of coffee beans of the world has also increased rapidly. (Thank you Coffee Bean Corral!). I have set up a roasting station in my shed too. However, the only thing I was really missing was the convenience of an automatic coffee maker that produced the same quality and taste of coffee that I always seemed to get with my old faithful Chemex. Heating the water to the perfect temperature and being able to pre-soak the grounds were the two elements missing from every auto coffee maker out a reasonable price. Enter the Behmor Brazen 3.0. I ordered it on a Sunday, received it the following Thursday (yesterday). I set it up last night (including a burr grinder I already had). I brewed 6 cups of Guatemalan coffee, and did something I rarely ever do before bedtime.....yep, I drank all six cups and then went to bed. :). Of course I programmed it for 7am for 8 cups to see how that feature worked, and then this morning. I laid in bed listening to it preheat the water, do the presoak, and then fill the carafe. The coffee tasted better than it has been tasting coming from the Chemex! Just think, you can determine the temp of the water and the presoak time! That is huge! As an aside: I am a bells and whistles sort of guy. I debated whether to purchase the 3.0 or the upgrade "Connected." I love "Alexa," I own at least 8 such devices in my home. But, to spend another $100 that gives you the added convenience of talking the coffee maker into making coffee is ludicrous. Remember, you still have to grind the coffee and add the water manually! And you can program the 3.0 once to give you coffee in the morning, every morning. At $179, the Brazen 3.0 is a steal, and you won't find it for a lower price anywhere else! I've looked.

We love our new machine! From the first pot brewed the improvement in taste was remarkable. I love that the thermal caraffe keeps the brew hot for hours—we use less coffee! (I do not like my coffee baked on a burner for more than an hour. I’d toss and make fresh).

This is actually my first Brazen. I've been using a combination of Technivorm and Clever brewers for the past 20 years, mostly, though I do break out an antique vacuum brewer occasionally, just for nostalgia. I had a few initial difficulties getting the grind coarse enough to prevent overflow, which I think is because of the force of the water pulses, which would in the end be a very good thing, because the only way I really got the best coffee from the Technivorm & Clever brewers was by stirring the grounds occasionally. That's not possible with the Braze, and also fortunately not necessary. Simply put, before I run out of room, the Brazen Plus 3.0 easily puts out the best coffee I've ever gotten from a drip brewer. Enough said. (Well, since I haven't run out of room yet, I'll add that the infusion capability is awesome for us home roasters, the temp setting capability is awesome for good coffee, period, and it's a very cool looking machine, even though I don't generally go for futuristic esthetics...)
