- The Fresh Brew is an old version from Zojirushi. In the Fresh Brew Plus, the design and features have been revamped to give you a better brewing experience.
- The old Fresh Brew doesn’t have a removable water reservoir.
- Optimal brewing temperature of 200F isn’t guaranteed with the Fresh Brew like it is with the Fresh Brew Plus.
- Fresh Brew Plus uses flat bottom filters, this type of filter ensures better coffee ground saturation and therefor better extracted flavor. The Fresh Brew uses a cone filter.
- The control panel on the Fresh Brew Plus is overall very well designed, with larger buttons and a clearer display than that on the Fresh Brew.
- The thermal carafe on the Fresh Brew Plus is thumb activated, this ensures the best heat retention and a much better lock mechanism than on the carafe of the Fresh Brew.
