Still providing coffee precision beyond compare, the Behmor Brazen Plus features all the things we adore about the first generation (temperature control, pre-soak function, elevation calibration and an overall amazing cup of coffee), but with a few essential upgrades. Experience maximum control as you pour your precisely brewed coffee from the improved thermal carafe. Choose from a flat bottom paper filter, or take advantage of the enhanced gold-tone permanent filter. Rest assured, because you're brewing with a machine that meets the Specialty Coffee Association of America's (SCAA) standard for quality home brewing.

Features and Functionality

  • Mode Button: Where the programming happens! Under this function, easily program the brew start time, pre-soak time, brew temperature, clock time and calibrate your elevation.
  • Auto-On: Program the Brazen Plus to auto start at any time of the day.
  • Pre-soak Function: Allow your grounds to bloom for optimal flavor! Program the pre-soak function anywhere from 15 seconds to 4 minutes.
  • Variable Temperature Control: Effortlessly set your preferred brew temperature between 190-210°F.
  • Elevation Calibration: By telling the Brazen Plus how far above sea level you reside, this coffee maker automatically compensates for elevation changes and how that impacts boiling point.
  • Insulated Stainless Steel Carafe: This helpful carafe keeps your coffee toasty for hours, without the fuss of a hot plate burner.
  • Manual Release: Feel like trying your hand at a precise pour-over? Easily brew into a Chemex carafe as this function allows the Brazen Plus to release heated water into a container other than the stainless steel carafe. Set the water temperature, remove the carafe, and use your Brazen Plus as a kettle for your favorite pour-over or to brew tea!
  • Large Filter Basket: The extra-capacity gold-tone permanent filter basket is 15% larger than the previous version's basket, giving your grounds room to bloom without overflowing.
  • Memory Save: The power may flicker from time to time (or be out for hours!), but the Brazen Plus will never forget your preferred settings.
  • Water Capacity Indicators: Inside the spacious water reservoir you'll notice water level lines. The maximum capacity will be marked (40 ounces), as well as the calibration fill line and a recommended smaller brew of 30 ounces.
  • Large Shower Head: Coffee Grounds become fully saturated during the brew process, as the large shower head rains over all the grounds and pulses the water flow for ideal coffee extraction.
  • Next Level Brewing: The Brazen Plus provides so much precision that you're able to take your standard drip brewing to the next level!
  • Simple Start-Up: No need to shy away from all the tech options! This brewer is user-friendly straight out of the box and super easy to set-up and start your first brew.
  • Friendly Carafe: The updated thermal carafe is perfect at pouring!
  • Tall Brewer: Measuring in at just under 16 inches in height, the Brazen Plus may not fit under some kitchen cabinets. Be sure to measure before you purchase!
How Does it Compare?

This upgraded brewer may resemble the previous Brazen (ok, it's pretty much the spitting image of the earlier model!), but features the sought after updated carafe that pours coffee in your cup and not on your counter. The updated gold-tone permanent filter basket is also 15% larger than the previous version, allowing more room to bloom!

Tips and Tricks NOTE: The Brazen Plus is designed specifically for 120V, 60 hz power sources, and will not function with a step up/down transformer.

Joe G on May 11, 2016
Best Answer: The brew/filter basket is plastic and BPA free. The pour spout - lid on the pot is also plastic. Those are the only two pieces that are plastic and touch the coffee. Would be nice if they went all stainless steel. I love this machine and highly recommend it.

Regarding the Behmor Brazen Plus -- How long does it take for the water to be heated to proper brewing temperature. Then what is the additional time to brew a full pot of coffee?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2014
Best Answer: There isn't a right or wrong answer to this, but there are some approximate times that you can use! The length of time for the machine to get up to your brewing temperature will depend on the starting water temperature and the brewing temperature that you are wanting.

To test this, I brewed at 200 degrees, so it took 6 minutes to get to 200 degrees, at which time it started to brew. The brew time will also vary, as it will depend on how much coffee you're using, and how fine of a grind you're using too. With a slightly coarser setting, the water will flow through the grounds faster, with a finer grind setting or higher dosage of coffee, it will take longer to brew for you. It will also make a difference how long you set the pre-soak to be, as a longer pre-soak will add to the overall brew time. Considering I just allowed a 15 second pre-soak, when I brewed it took an additional 6 minutes before it was finished dripping through into the carafe.

So, I would imagine that depending on your settings, you could expect an overall brew time of between 11-15 minutes from start to finish.

How is the Behmor Brazen Plus for single cups?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2015
Best Answer: It will brew up to 8 5 oz cups with water fill lines in the reservoir positioned at 4, 6 and 8 cups. It makes one cup in less than 5 minutes that is just as nice as the cup it makes when you make a full pot. There is also a manual brewing method that you could use for open brewing if you're looking for more of a pour over experience.

What is the brew time?
Peg M on Dec 29, 2014
Best Answer: Brew time will depend on the size of the batch, incoming water temp, and your target brew temp. I just timed mine this morning:

0.9L batch (75% of its capacity) with a target of 204 degrees F. It spent 6 minutes in the heating phase, and 5 minutes in the brewing phase before there was no more "dripping" into the carafe. The machine shut off automatically 1 minute later. (11 or 12 mins total)

First drinkable coffee was probably at 8.5 minutes from the start, but I prefer to brew the full batch before taking any out.

Keep in mind that as soon as you add water to the top, you can start the heating phase. You can be doing other things like grinding your beans and prepping the carafe during that first 6 minutes, as long as you get them installed in the brewer before it hits the target temperature. So in reality, it never feels that long to me.

So, you can brew one cup at a time? Can you control how many ounces for that one cup?
Joanne P on Dec 7, 2016
Best Answer: I've never tried one cup (mug), as I typically brew two mugs. You cannot tell the Brazen how much water to pass through. What you put in, comes out. Brehmor recommends using 1.0 liter of water and 55 gm coffee -- I simply scale it down in-half. For 2 mugs, I use ~27.5-30 gm coffee/500 milliliters water (English equivalent is 1 oz weighed coffee per 2 cups of water). This works for me. Theoretically, I suppose you could reduce it down further to 1 cup of water and 1/2 ounce of coffee but again...I haven't tried it. There may be diminishing returns if you go too low. I am very happy with my Behmor. It's the best automatic home coffee maker I've owned, It's basically an automated Chemex. Behmor customer service is very responsive. I suggest you contact them.

Where are these coffee makers made?
Amy U on Feb 17, 2016
Best Answer: They are made in China. The overall quality of the unit is quite good, I just noticed the base is die-cast either zinc or aluminum (this good), the fit of the basket to the body is snug and the parts do match up well. The tank is stainless steel and is pretty nice, the top is double wall (can get hot). My opinion is that one would be hard pressed to find a higher build quality at this price point. Mine is about a year old and going strong. The carafe could be bigger and have a sight glass for viewing the coffee level inside. One more thing....the coffee maker is pretty easy to program and only loses the time when un-plugged.


I apologize for being too detailed but I want to give a nod for those manufacturers that do a good job at a decent price point. I am a product designer for about 35 years, and I don't work for Behmor. Good Luck, your choice.

Since the cone shape filter seems to be the preferred choice over flat filters is there a compromise on flavor?
Or does this unit compensate for the difference? I like the unit I just am a little apprehensive about the flat filter.
Please advise
Chad F on Jan 11, 2015
Best Answer: We have found that the machine is able to brew a great cup of coffee. It does regulate the brewing to do not only a pre-infusion/saturation, where you can set how long the first pulse of water will sit in the coffee before it puts more water out to continue the brewing process, but it also pulse brews to only put out short segments of water so that the grounds aren't overwhelmed with water, and you can get the full flavor out of the coffee. It really is just a personal preference between the type of filter. We've been able to get a great cup out of either one, you will just want to experiment some with the grind consistency and how much coffee you're using to achieve the flavor you're looking for! It's nice that you can set the temperature that you brew at and it will do that for you consistently, and that will make a big difference to getting the best flavor.

It seems the preffered choice in filters is cone. Why put a flat bottom in this unit? It seems this is the only thing lacking in this unit. Or does this unit brew as good as a cone filter?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2015
Best Answer: The shape if the filter does not alter the coffee taste as you have a wide shower head that soaks every morsel of coffee grinds. The Coffee is able to bloom without restriction and yields a better cup for me.

I have read that the Brazen Plus thermal carafe does a poor job of keeping the coffee warm. Have you found this to be a problem?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2014
Best Answer: I usually preheat the thermal carafe with some boiling water from a regular kettle while the Brazen is coming up to temperature. This helps the initial coffee be at its hottest, and to last longer. When I do this, the coffee in the Brazen kettle stays "hot" for I'd say around 45 mins, and "warm" for another hour or so. I've never measured temps to be sure. Anecdotally, I usually reheat my coffee in the microwave for a few seconds if it's been brewed over an hour ago.

Given the choice between a thermal carafe and a hot plate/glass carafe, I still prefer the thermal for the superior quality of the coffee.

Every few days, I have to take apart the lid of the carafe of my Brazen Plus and empty water out of it. I see that there are silicone gasket seals around the pass through openings in the lid, but apparently they don't do much good. I am concerned (crosses fingers) that the stainless steel screws that hold the two parts of the lid together don't eventually wear out the plastic they attach to: it seems this is a design flaw. The water that gets stuck in the carafe lid doesn't leak out into the brewed coffee, but I empty it regularly out of concern that if left too long, it will get moldy. Is it possible I have a defective carafe lid?
Ian H on Mar 1, 2015
Best Answer: I haven't heard of this issue before, so I'm not sure if it would be something that is completely abnormal. It does sound like you're getting quite a bit more stored in here, than I would expect, but I think it's very important to also be cleaning this area regularly, as the coffee oil build up can impede the flow so that it doesn't go into the carafe as easily and over time with enough build up, could actually cause overflow where it doesn't go into the carafe, but rather over the edges (yuck!). I would probably recommend reaching out to Behmor (, to see if they have some recommendations since I haven't encountered that before.

Great coffee makerReview by Rich
I've had this coffee maker for a couple years now and drinking coffee this morning made me want to create a review.

I've been extremely pleased with this coffee maker. The programability is great. Makes very consistently good coffee. I like how adjustable the brew temp is to make sure I'm not over heating the water for a specific blend. It's really helped me appreciate the differences in coffee.

There's always something that can be made better and here goes.
- The filter that comes with it is a nightmare to clean. I just use paper filters instead.
- The lid of the carafe is not completely sealed so liquid can get inside it causing a strange sound during brewing. All this means is I have to take it apart occasionally, drain it, and re-seal it.
- This is more of a gripe with new products in general, but there's so much plastic. For something at this price point, I would like to see less plastic as the focal point. The buttons in particular are vague and sometimes don't respond to the first press.

That said, if it were to break today, I'd buy another one. I've been extremely happy with the product and highly recommend it. (Posted on 11/10/2017)
DisapointedReview by kerh
Disappointing in the fact that my coffee does not stay hot in the pot, my previous Breville did so much better.also I ALWAYS have to keep a paper towel under the pot when pouring...its leaks horribly.
It's my own fault I didn't recognize how small the pot is. I get only 4 cups of coffee w/my coffee cups....making pots all day long. Good for the 'one cup a day drinkers'..only. Overall, bad investment on my part. (Posted on 8/21/2017)
Not sure yetReview by sbecertified
For several years I had been using a cheap little 4 cup Gevalia coffee maker I got for free. After talking with a friend of mine, wanted to step up my game a bit and hopefully make a better cup of coffee. (Did not want to spend thousands of dollars on a coffee machine!) I decided on this Brazen. I have had the Brazen for less then a week and so far I'm a bit underwhelmed at its performance. Being I am technical, I liked the precision adjustments you can make as far as temperature and such. I am not happy with the end temperature of the coffee coming out of the carafe. It is more than warm but not hot like I like it. I do add some cream into my coffee which, again, further cools down the cup. I am still experimenting with the machine so why I said not sure yet. I may consider pre-heating the carafe with hot water and then using that water to make the coffee but that's getting into a little more work then what I had intended for my morning coffee. So far, I nuke my cup of coffee for 30 seconds to bring it up to temp the way I like it at the table but was hoping I would not have to do that. Upon reading reviews though, it appears that, that procedure is better then having a warming plate under the carafe. Still figuring coffee ratios to water and what I like, to obtain what I consider to be great tasting coffee. (Posted on 2/10/2017)
This is the best coffeemaker I've ownedReview by Photoman2
I bought this machine from Seattle Coffee after having owned many other units. I was intrigued by the ability to set brew temperature and bloom time.

I wasn't disappointed. The machine makes great coffee!

My only complaint is the thermal carafe. I make 30 ounces of coffee, drinking from a 20 oz mug. By the time I got around to refilling it, the coffee had cooled, so now I decant the second cup into a small Nissan travel unit and it stays very hot until I drink it. Also, pouring from the carafe can be a little messy, but it's a small price to pay for the excellent coffee it produces. (Posted on 9/5/2016)
Good idea, Poor executionReview by snogoose
I have used the Brazen Brew System for over a year now and while I agree the coffee tastes great when brewed and I really like the pre-soak function, this brewer is a poor (perhaps the worst) design.
Statements about the carafe not keeping coffee warm for any extended period of time are true. The lid is of inferior design with a gaping hole in the top of it that does not seal like many competing carafes do.
My system leaks water EVERYWHERE when I brew. The basket that holds the coffee filter was put together as an afterthought. It does not fit well with the brewer itself so water leaks outside the basket and pools under the carafe and onto the counter-top. I have grown tired of this mess every morning :(
Ultimately I couldn't agree more with another review stating that this brewer is under-engineered. Brazzen has a good idea, but it looks and performs like it was made in someone's basement. (Posted on 7/4/2016)

Could be betterReview by marc
I've had this Brewer for a year now. The temperature control system and calibration is definitely a great feature for this Brewer; aiding in crafting different flavor profiles for each of my brews and producing a super hot cup of coffee. The biggest disappointment I've experienced is that the thermal carafe does not keep the coffee hot for more than an hour. I believe that this is due to the heat escaping through the lid. The lid lacks having a airlock or the capability of creating a vacuum seal to retain the heat. When you pour your coffee it draws in cool air through the lid bringing down the temperature of the coffee inside the carafe. I probably should have spent the extra money for a Technivorm. If Behmor improves the lid design of the Carafe, this would be the perfect brew system. (Posted on 3/6/2016)
great coffee; terrible carafeReview by Wendy
1. carafe does not keep a 4 cup brew hot; just warm. I haven't tried brewing 6 cups.
2. pouring the 4 cup brew is MESSY - spills everywhere! Need to take the carafe cover off prior to pouring!
3. be EXTREMELY careful when pouring a max fill of 8 cups. It fills the carafe to the brim and it spills over almost immediately once you take it off the warming plate. I burned my hand and it didn't feel great; hot, hot, hot!

Coffee is great tasting and the machine is easy to set up.

Have owned this machine for 3 years. First one broke down and Behmor replaced it with the "Plus". Makes very good coffee. Being able to adjust brewing temperature is a game changer. You can smooth out darker roasts by putting the temp down or coax out a little more flavor in light or medium roasts by putting it up. (Posted on 12/11/2015)

Meticulous control over brewingReview by Godfather
Some of the best coffee we've ever tasted. Complete control of presoak times, water temp and altitude adjustment for precise boiling. One of the only coffee machines with a stainless steel reservoir. Have no problem with the carafe cooling down. Sure, 2 hours later it's a tad cooler, ( a tad) but that's why they invented microwave ovens. Besides who lets their coffee sit that long. Yuck. Stop drinking BPA plastic parts coffee and step up to the Brazen Plus. Yes, even the Bonavita 1900 st has a plastic water reservoir. (which we also own). Heck, I pull up a chair and watch the Brazen Plus do its thing in the morning. It's that beautiful. Oh and did I mention 5 star coffee? (Posted on 6/6/2015)
I am on my send one unit. The first failed after 6 months due to my softened and filtered home water "being too hard". So Behmor replaced it and I started buying bottled vapor distiller water that had less than 100 ppm of minerals in it (kind of a pita to have to gain that kind of knowledge about the different available brands of distiller water, but we are coffee geeks).

The distilled water definitely helped. I've gone an entire year on the second unit before it failed in the exact same way as the first. (Despite regular descaling that was completely unneccesary)

Being a technical sort, I disassembled the unit and have come to the conclusion that there are a couple of under-engineered components. One of which is the electromagnetic valve at the heart of the system. I have not yet disassembled that, but it is clearly suffered

Extremely happy.Review by spa
I can't count how many drip coffee machines I have bought over the years, and never being satisfied with any. This time, based on many reviews and recommendations, I narrowed it down to the Technivorm, Brazen and Bonavita. I chose the Brazen Plus. In terms of overall quality of brew they are all ranked highly. I ruled out the Technivorm, mainly on price alone. The Bonavita was praised by many, but one excellent review showed the water dripping out of the basket drip holes unevenly. That worried me. Using the Brazen, the coffee came through the drip holes evenly. However, it was mostly the versatility of water temperature and pre-soak time of the Brazen that swayed me.

I've made several pots at this point (using brown filter paper), and overall, I rank the Brazen Plus as excellent. I weigh the coffee beans based on their recommended settings and the results are at or close to what I like. I have noticed a difference by adjusting the brew temp and/or pre-soak times, so what they say is true. After some adjustment I have not changed the settings. I can see how those variables will change with different coffee beans (as demonstrated in the video here at Seattle Coffee Gear). Considering the different varieties of coffee beans I brew, though, I'm not sure how much experimentation I want to do (or practically can do). That said, it's nice to have the option. Regardless , it makes a great cup of coffee -- smooth and not at all bitter.

Negatives? Really just one--I tend to drink slowly over a couple of hours. I am used to a hot plate beneath the pot to keep it warm. Thermal carafes avoid the potential bitterness created by plate heaters, but the coffee cools down relatively quickly in the thermal carafe. I read the Brazen cools faster compared to its competitors. Also, I like to add a small amount of milk to my coffee (although with the Brazen I almost don't mind drinking black again -- the coffee is that smooth). I have found that by briefly microwaving the milk to warm it up makes a big difference. The cold milk tended to cool down the coffee too much after my first cup.

I am very happy with the Brazen -- actually, the first time I've really enjoyed coffee from a drip machine. I might have been equally happy with the Technivorm or Bonavita, but I think I've made an excellent choice.
