Bunn-O-Matic Corporation is a manufacturer of dispensed beverage equipment (including coffee and tea) headquartered in Springfield, Illinois with a plant in Creston, Iowa. The company was founded in 1957 by George R. Bunn Jr., who invented the flat-bottom fluted coffee filter and the pour-over drip coffee brewer.[1][verification needed] Today, the corporation’s products are sold under the BUNN and Bunn-O-Matic brands. The company's home coffeemakers are used throughout the United States and Canada, but the company's primary customers are institutional foodservice providers worldwide. The company introduced their first automatic drip-brew coffee maker in 1963. The company introduced their first drip brewer for the home market in 1972. The current president and CEO is Arthur H. Bunn.

Bunn is the US distributor of the Tiger Super Automatic Espresso Machine made by Thermoplan AG.

More recently, the company also sells a coffee pod brewer system similar to Keurig K-Cups.[2]
