Bunn My Cafe MCU Review
I love a good cup of coffee. Especially when its from a café or coffee house, it just always seems to taste better than homemade coffee. Unfortunately, I don’t have a fortune to spend on coffee from a hip coffee house every morning. This post was sponsored.
Heck, hitting up the Drive Thru every morning is out of the question too! I typically don’t even have the time to because of the huge lines.
For these reasons, I normally brew my coffee at home. While it has it’s advantages, it takes some time, cleanup, and it just doesn’t taste as good as commercially available brewed coffee. Thankfully, those times have come to an end for me, because I just replaced my old coffee machine with the Bunn My Café MCU!
The Bunn My Café MCU is the ultimate single cup brewer for your home. It brews K-Cups, soft pods, loose ground coffee, tea, and can simply be used to serve hot water.
What’s so unique about that? I’m glad you asked! First of all, the Bunn My Café MCU wasn’t just designed to brew K-Cups! The Bunn My Café was engineered to perform multiple, useful tasks from the start.
The Bunn My Café has 4 drawers, each with their own purpose. One drawer is for brewing K-Cups. There’s another for loose coffee grounds, or loose tea. Another drawer for soft coffee pods or tea bags, and another for hot water.
I really like the fact that Bunn included a drawer exclusively for hot water, because after a while of brewing coffee through the same ole basket, drawer, or whatever kind of brewing mechanism you have, the water takes on an “off taste” from repeated coffee cycles. Bunn considered this, and designed the ultimate brewing station.
Each of the 4 drawer systems are simple to use, and are quite intuitive. The included owners manual /user’s guide is well written and has plenty of images to teach you how to use the machine properly.
The drawers slide onto the machine via guide rails, and lock into place. When you’re ready to remove the drawer, simply grab the drawer with your hand, and press the button with your thumb. The drawer unlocks and easily slides out.
Part of the advantage of owning this machine, is the quality of brew it produces. Bunn is the leading brand of commercial coffee makers, so they know a thing or two about brewing the perfect cup.
First is temperature, the Bunn My Café brews your coffee at the perfect temperature of 200F. The reservoir keeps the water hot, and ready at the perfect temperature so it’s there when you need it.
It only takes about 1-2 minutes (respectively) to get the water temperature back up to 200F. Second, is turbulence, the Bunn My Café injects water into the coffee grounds with their patented shower head design. This guarantees better water to coffee contact, and more efficient extraction of the beans.
Below are my noteworthy takeaways from the Bunn My Café MCU review:
- 4 separate drawers for brewing K-Cups, soft pods, tea bags, loose coffee, loose tea, and hot water;
- All drawers were designed well, and function perfectly;
- You can get hot water instantly without weird coffee flavor undertones;
- Brews a cup of coffee in a matter of seconds.
- Sizes range from 4oz to 14oz. How much water you put in, determines how much comes out, so you’re in complete control;
- Pulse mode slows the brewing process, which extracts more flavor from the coffee, making a stronger cup;
- All drawers are super easy to clean;
- Energy saving functions are a great bonus to this machine!

The Bunn My Café MCU is very well built, and it’s super sleek. It fits perfectly on my kitchen counter, and actually accents the area instead of sitting there looking all ugly.
Bottom line… If you’re going to get a single cup brewer, this is the one you should get! The Bunn My Café does it all, and it does it well! There is ZERO need for kcups, but of course they are always nice to have, but not at all necessary!
You can learn more about the Bunn My Cafe MCU on their official site. It retails for $250, but frequently goes on sale for under $200.00! Connecting with Bunn on social media sites like Facebook & Twitter will also keep you in the know how when it comes to Bunn product news.
