From the company that makes the popular Behmor 1600 coffee roaster, the Brazen Plus automatic 6-8 cup brewer allows control of brewing parameters such as brew temperature and altitude compensation (the altitude at which you brew your coffee...it doesn't fly). The Brazen has an auto timer to start brewing at any time of the day and when you find settings that you like, the Brazen saves them to use later. The water reservoir and carafe are both stainless steel. It has a pre-soak function to allow a small amount of hot water into the brew basket to pre-wet the coffee grounds. It comes with a gold mesh filter basket. .
