Bunn-O-Matic Corporation is a manufacturer of coffee- and tea-making equipment headquartered in Springfield, Illinois and a sister plant in Creston, Iowa. Founded by George Bunn, who invented the fluted coffee filter, its customers are primarily institutional foodservice providers. The company also offers a product line for home use and introduced the first commercial quality drip brewer for the home market in 1972. Its products are sold under the Bunn and Bunn-o-Matic brands. The company introduced the world's first automatic drip-brew coffee maker in 1963. The current C.E.O. and president is Arthur H. Bunn.

BUNN is the US distributor of the Tiger super automatic espresso machine made by Thermoplan AG, the company famous for making the Starbucks Mastrena.

The current list of Bunn home coffee brewers includes the NHBX, GRX, and BX models which are all 10 cup (50 fl oz., 1.5 L) coffee brewers. The GRX and BX models also come in high-altitude models. Also included in the Bunn home brewer collection are the BTX and STX, which both use a 10 cup (50 fl oz., 1.5 L) double-walled thermal carafe to keep coffee hotter longer. Both of these models also come in high-altitude models. The company also sells the 'My Cafe' Coffee Pod brewer system. The 'My Cafe' coffee maker brews single cups of coffee or tea using a coffee pod.
