To Susan on the high altitude question. The boiling point of liquids varies proportionally with pressure. Higher pressure, higher boiling point, and vice versa. Low pressure at high altitudes means the water might be boiling before it gets to the correct brew temp. I imagine they have a pressure vessel that allows pressure to build as the water heats in the coffee maker, so it won't boil before hitting temp. If you live below 4500 ft elevation or so (boiling is 203.9 F), it's not worth it.

Mike Russo ♦ Elaine...Thank you for your interest in the Bunn BTX-B and the information you obtained from Bunn. For me to confirm for you that the Bunn BTX-B is made in the U.S., I myself would have to do as you did and contact Bunn directly. Thanks.

All this information is great But how does the coffee smell and taste with brands. And to get that smooth taste how do you measure the coffee for brewiing?

BaristaCorner Dear Margaret... Bunn has a reputation within the coffee industry for manufacturing quality brewing equipment that makes excellent coffee that tastes and smells great. As far as getting a smooth taste when you brew your coffee, just remember the ratio of 1 heaping teaspoon of coffee to every 8 oz cup of water and you should be fine. I would look forward to your review of this machine once you have used it. Thank you...Eric Black

What is the reason for the high altitude version? Is it worth it spending STILL more $

WholeLatteLoveS S Do you live in a high altitude region? Because the boiling point of water is higher in at higher altitude this machine will allow you to reach the correct brew temp.
