I find that I am very often asked about the differences between the trifectaMB and its predecessor the commercial trifecta. Basically both of these brewers create an amazing Full Cup of coffee using Air Infusion technology. The main difference lies in the users' control.
When describing the variables at hand I typically say the trifecta is like painting on a blank canvas - you can do nearly anything you want to control the brew process. However, brewing on trifectaMB is like doing a "paint by numbers" where there are specifics in place to help consumers make a great cup right out of the box.
That being said, trifectaMB comes with 15 preset coffee recipes and 10 preset tea recipes. Each recipe is selected by dialing in a combination of Turbulence Cycle and Infusion Time. Physically and operationally the two machines are very similar. Both use a very small metal screen inside a specially formulated plastic brew chamber. Both have an air pump that creates turbulence through Air Infusion and a separate pump for creating a pressurized press out. And equally as important both heat water to precise temperatures. Trifecta allows you to customize your temperature where trifectaMB always brews at a precise 200F.
If you love the taste of trifecta at your favorite coffee shop you can get the same amazing coffee at home with trifectaMB.
P.S. Wondering what MB stands for? Its for "micro-brew" :)
