Bunn BXB - 10 cup coffee maker
Bunn is one of the leading manufacturers of beverage equipment in the industry and has been churning out reliable coffee makers for over 40 years. Bunn is the company that first introduced the fluted paper coffee filter.
The company introduced the Bunn-O-Matic in 1957 when George Bunn decided to place a fluted coffee filter paper into a stand-alone paper coffee filter. They then revolutionized the coffee making industry by coming out with the pour-over automatic drip coffee maker, which first became a hit in the restaurant industry. This soon became a hit with homemakers everywhere, when the company came out with coffee makers for home use in 1972.
