Bunn-o-Matic began with its founding back in 1957 after George Bunn invented the first fluted coffee filter. As time progressed, so did the inventiveness of George, and a few years later in 1963 the Bunn-o-Matic Corporation developed the very first automatic drip coffee maker for commercial use. This commercial coffee maker was an instant success. Afterwards, Bunn became synonymous with a great cup of coffee. Today, Bunn has become a hallmark of quality across the spectrum of commercial coffee and beverage machines, hot water temperature regulators, and restaurant grade coffee and water dispensers.
