CNET First Look
The basic Braun coffee maker brews drip surprisingly wellSure, Braun's BrewSense KF7150 is no style icon, but we weren't expecting a $100 machine to brew coffee this good.
[MUSIC] Don't be fooled by this Braun Brewsense Coffee Maker's ordinary appearance, this coffee maker here may look like a ordinary kitchen appliance, but, in fact, brews pot after pot of very delicious joe. It's affordable too, it's priced at a $100, which. May sound like a lot, but when compared to other luxury coffee makers, it's actually quite affordable. It's also small and compact, which means it'll fit on your kitchen countertop without much trouble at all. Like I said before, it also makes excellent coffee, which is something I don't expect from a machine that costs this price. Braun had to make some tradeoffs here to get the The price down. Number one, it doesn't have a thermal carafe. Instead it uses a glass carafe which sits on a hot plate, which isn't ideal especially if you wanna have your coffee sit around for hours. And the compact size comes at a price. Opening up the tank to put water in is actually kinda difficult because there's not much room to maneuver. Also if you're familiar with Cuisinart or other old-school coffee makers, The glass carafe definitely has a tendency to spill. Especially if you try to pour water or any kind of liquid to quickly out of it. There's more we could get into, but we don't have time right now. Check out my full review, but all in all though I have to say that I'm very pleasantly surprised by this Braun coffee maker. It brews very good coffee at a price that's very affordable. [BLANK_AUDIO]
