Hey all and welcome to this Zojirushi EC-BD15BA review. Over the course of this relatively short review I will be attempting to inform you all of the key information regarding this coffee maker and hopefully allowing you to reach a point where you can decide whether this is the machine for you or not.
The Zojirushi is probably one of the better thermal carafe coffee makers available at the moment.
The majority of these carafes have absolutely terrible pour rates, and although this one is relatively slow I will gladly take a pour rate like this over a glass carafe any day of the week.
The problem with glass carafes, even though they have a great pour rate they burn coffee within minutes. What is the point of brewing a 12 cup pot of coffee if we have to drink it in less than 30 minutes to stop a horrible deterioration of flavor?
Modern thermal carafes keep the coffee hot for hours on end, but also keep the coffee as fresh as if it had just been brewed. You can brew your coffee at 8 am and still have hot coffee at 3 pm, something pretty impressive right there.
After that I would quickly like to go over one of the few issues that this coffee maker has. The pipe which runs from the heating element to the head runs directly through the water reservoir. And while I think that this is one of those problems that “could” pose a big issue, it seems that as long as we are aware of the issue and take the proper precautions there shouldn’t really be any huge problems.
I would strongly recommend against using chilled water when you fill the reservoir. Using water that is too cold will reduce the temperature of the water that is used during the brew and thus we will end up with worse tasting coffee.
Thanks for reading this Zojirushi EC-BD15BA review.
