It’s hard to imagine your morning ritual without a fresh brew of your favorite coffee or that pick-me-up as the day goes on. If you don’t like waiting for your coffee to brew or you want a richer taste than you can get from a Keurig, we have two great drip coffee makers from Braun.
Today, we will look at the Braun KF7070si vs KF7070. As you can imagine from the name, the two coffee machines are rather similar. However, we will discuss all the specifics to decide which is the best drip coffee maker. After comparing things like appearance, capacity, and technology, we will add a quick review and some pros and cons of each.
To begin, we will look at what similarities the Braun KF7070si and the Braun KF7070 have.
Let’s go over the specifications of the Braun KF7070si and the Braun KF7070 in a quick side-by-side chart.
Both the Braun KF7070si and the Braun KF7070 are stainless steel with black features, making them look sleek in any kitchen. They are 7.9 x 7.9 x 14.2 inches. The Braun KF7070si weighs 7.4 pounds and the Braun KF7070 6.2 pounds. This isn’t enough to make a difference.
Pure Flavor Technology
With Pure Flavor Technology, the Braun KF7070si and the Braun KF7070 constantly have high brewing temperatures with optimal brewing time. Combined with consistent coffee extraction, these coffee machines make an excellent fresh brew.
The carafe holds 12 cups and there are line markings to help get the right water measurements. The carafes fit under the coffee machines and seal tight so that none of the coffee aroma escapes. One special feature that both machines have is that they have a setting to tell the machine when you are brewing between 1-4 cups so that they turn out as great as if you were brewing a whole pot.
If you are desperate for your cup of coffee, the Braun KF7070si and the Braun KF7070 have a brew-pause system. The anti-drip system means you can pour coffee without making a mess and then continue the brew.
The Braun KF7070si and the Braun KF7070 have auto-on and auto-off features so you can make sure the coffee machine starts and stops brewing at the best time for you. You can use the programmable 24-hour timers to have a fresh, hot coffee at any time of the day.
Inside the Braun KF7070si and the Braun KF7070, there is a gold-tone filter that will enhance the flavor of the coffee. Furthermore, there is a charcoal filter so you can use water straight from the faucet. You can select the hardness of your water to ensure a great cup of coffee. On top of that, there is an LED light on each coffee machine to warn you when the machines need descaling.
Parts of both the Braun KF7070si and the Braun KF7070 can be cleaned in the dishwasher. The coffee-making experience is even more enjoyable when the clean-up is easier.
There are just a few differences between the Braun KF7070si and the Braun KF7070 and we will go over these next.
It’s all very well having multiple settings, but you need a display to be able to use these without needing a degree in engineering!
There is an LED display on the front of the coffee machine with lights to indicate the functions in use. The screen lights up, making it more visible. For more on using this machine, check out the manual.
The LED display is in the same place with the same LED lights. The only shame is that the clock doesn’t light up.
