THE Brastemp gave us a sample of B.blend un.plug for testing, and after a few weeks with the product, you check out our full review.
Robust but elegant design
The machines that make coffee through capsules are becoming more popular in Brazil, and the bet of Brastemp with the B.blend un.plug It is precisely to unite, in a single model, the ability to make, in addition to coffee, soft drinks, juices, hot or cold drinks, carbonated or still, as practical as possible.
Launched in February, different from B.blend en.joy, the model does not require water point because it already has a removable compartment for adding filtered water. Due to this new technology, the model can make the most varied drinks of everyday life in various environments such as living room, office, kitchen or balcony.
The model we tested has a white color, but can also be found in a black color. In addition, there are versions with 110V and 220V. The design of the machine is robust precisely because it has its own water compartment, and it may take up considerable space in your rack – measuring 39.5 x 32.2 x 45 (cm) and 32kg. Despite its robustness, both the white color with gray accents are elegant and combine with various environments.
Capsules for all tastes
The current portfolio of B.blend It covers various categories of beverages with over 40 flavors. These options are available thanks to the partnership of Brastemp with the Ambev, responsible for passing on the concentrated drinks. The capsule beverage machine still has an intelligent system that can identify what needs to be done based on the code contained in the capsule.
The various flavors are very complex and include both cold drinks such as most sodas, juices of various flavors, iced tea, healthy juices, among others as hot drinks – cappuccino, coffee and hot teas. In addition it is also possible to have cold, hot, sparkling or slightly carbonated water.
As for taste, it's amazing how the machine preserves the original flavor of drinks – even carbonated ones! As much as machine companies promise to maintain the original taste of beverages, the biggest fear we have is precisely the artificial or, say, different taste. It is surprising that the soda gets as cold and carbonated as can cans. The juices are also very faithful – 100% of the fruit – the iced tea is tasty.
The capsules range from $ 1.99 to $ 4.49, where the cheapest models are sodas and juices, while the most expensive items are the energy line. For the most passionate about various types of drinks, the Brastemp It also makes the subscription plan available to users.

The way all-in-one need
With the convenience of the beverage machine, it is possible to make coffees faster than competitors, such as Nespresso, but it still stands out by the way all-in-one, developed by Brastemp, which is the world's first model capable of preparing a variety of drinks in one place without a mix of flavors, ranging from cold to hot, carbonated or non-carbonated beverages.
The process for making a soda similar to traditional cans is not easy to explain, but at B.blend un.plug is quite practical and simple. For gasification, the beverage machine has in its composition a gas cylinder that yields up to 37.5 liters, allowing to prepare about 185 drinks. When finished, the machine is able to warn when it needs to be replaced and has an easy to change system.
The cost of replacing cylinders costs around $ 100. The machine also uses a water filter that should be changed every six months, worth $ 90. However, the water filter is small, and needs constantly being filled. Brastemp had to include this system to avoid needing a specific water point for the installation. For the user, the biggest benefit is the practicality, being able to have a model of the B.blend un.plug even in your room – wouldn't it be wonderful to have a drink machine a few feet from your bed?
At first use, simply plug it in, fill the filtered water tank and press the button “Sparkling water”. Of course, the machine should take 5 to 10 minutes as it will be freezing the water in the reservoir. Remember that it is important to adjust the glass tray so that it is very close to the water outlet. It's quite simple, you have to push this flagged part and adjust it up or down.
Below is a video tutorial of how easy it is to change the gas cylinder for the preparation of refrigerants and energy drinks:
