The Speed Brew and Velocity Brew are quite similar in what they do. You might find the name ‘Speed Brew’ misleading as both models brew a full pot at the same time, in about 3 to 4 minutes. But here’s how these two differ from each other:
- Both Speed Brew and Velocity Brew use a sprayhead that showers the coffee ground to ensure even saturation of the coffee and a full extraction. The difference, however, is that the Speed Brew Sprayhead extends the contact time between water and the coffee ground, which results in better tasting coffee.
- Design wise, the Speed Brew has a curved design which has a better effect on how the coffee drips down to the pot.
- Both machines have the same Pour-O-Matic glass carafe that eliminates spills.
Which One Should You Buy?
When it comes to the Speed Brew and Velocity Brew, the one thing that will make a difference is:
- The extended coffee/water contact time that the Speed Brew offers.
So if that would make a difference to you (it really does affect the taste of coffee, and if you’re familiar with pour-over, you should know the difference), then certainly go for the Speed Brew. If you feel like it wouldn’t be of much difference to you, you can save yourself a few bucks by going for the Velocity Brew and still get great coffee.
