BrewFire Coffee Maker

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on August 16, 2011
After viewing all the bad rap this product got, I decided to write a review of my own, since I have not had this experience and was surprised to find that others had.

This coffee maker is probably not as nice as the Primus version of the Brewfire Coffe maker, but it is more affordable, still usable and rugged and still makes the 8 cups of coffee after 12 minutes or so. Also, it still operates with just propane or butante, which is a neat feature. I took care of mine, since I've had experiences before with regular kitchen coffee makers not working well after rough transport/handling, and after taking care of this coffe maker, and making sure it wasn't dinged around too much, I have come out ok.
Pros: Usability, Features, Durability...
Would recommend: Yes

Pros: works ok IF you can get it to start after many tries
Cons: can not get it to start without several tries...

Don't do it

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, AZ Written on October 5, 2009
Even though I read the negative reviews, I stupidly bought the thing anyway for my dad's birthday. It is junk, buy one for the camp stove for a third the price and save yourself much disappointment and headache. It really is a great idea that was poorly executed. I've lost faith in the brand all together.
Pros: good idea
Cons: doesn't work...
Would recommend: No

BRUNTON'S BREWFIRE COFFEE MAKER IS A HUGE FAILURE

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on May 18, 2009
We are a true outdoors family. We alsod group camp a lot. We looked forward to this unit to replace our low tech Coleman drop coffee maker that works fine, albeit slowly, and which doesn't keep the coffee warm. This new 'high tech' cheaply constructed Chinese made Brunton unit however was a major disappointment. Arriving without a manual, I first had to find one, then download one off the net; per the manual I got on line, this was supposed to come with a butane converter and batteries, but it didn't come with those either. Put off but still undaunted, and still hopeful, I put new batteries in it, screwed in a new propane canister, and after filling it with water, followed the instructions exactly. And then? Nothing, nada, didly squat. Tried everything. Checked everything repeatedly. Couldn't get it to work and after several attempts, gave up. Quality? A screw fell out of the bottom, the plastic components fit poorly, in that the doors did not align well, fit, and consequently, did not close securely; the permanent filter doesn't fit where it goes well either, the polarity of the batteries is not indicated, and the door that covers them does not close securely, the rotary turn and ignite recessed switch felt very flimsy, and the propane can was somewhat difficult and awkward to install inside it, so it is somewhat poor ergonomically design -wise. The metal carafe appeared well made, but I obviously never got to see if it actually kept coffee warm. Besides the car...
