We are very excited to introduce the Bonavita Automatic Coffee Brewer with glass server! The Bonavita brewer is one of only a handful of home brewers to be certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA), and at a very accessible price. The Bonavita features a shower head "trickle" design for a more even coffee bed saturation, leaving no dry, under-extracted spots in the bed. Also, the Bonavita is a reliable water delivery system, maintaining optimal and consistent water temperature during the entirety of the brewing process. The problem with nearly all automatic home brewers is that they do not reach a hot enough temperature to brew coffee, most not getting higher than 175-190 degrees. Our tests revealed a consistent 200-203 degree bed temperature and constant 205 degree water temperature at the brew head. The Bonavita brewer is ideal to serve as a replacement for inconsistent and inferior quality automatic home brewers, for coffee geeks at home wanting a quality option for brewing coffee for guests, and for offices looking for a better option than the "K-cup" machine in the break room. The glass server is an elegant compliment to the brewer, and this model includes a warmer at the base, although we recommend removing it from the heating element immediately after the brew for best results. For the Bonavita Brewer with a thermal carafe, see our Bonavita Automatic Coffee Brewer with Thermal Carafe listing.

Bonavita

Bonavita is a newcomer to the specialty coffee scene in the U.S., but their products will by no means let them go unnoticed for long. Bonavita's first product offerings fill a much needed gap in affordable specialty coffee brewing gear for the home. It is because of both the quality and affordability of Bonavita's products that we are bringing in two completely new products for our coffee loving customers. The first of these is Prima Coffee Equipment's first ever offered automatic home coffee brewing machine. While there are a couple of brewers on the market that could stand up to our quality standards for a home brewer, they were too expensive. Bonavita's automated coffee brewers offer the same quality of the more expensive brewers at a fraction of the cost. The second unprecedented product offering from Bonavita is their electric pour over brewing kettle. With the indefinite delay of the electric Hario Buono Kettle, the Bonavita Electric Gooseneck Stainless Kettle is the first of its kind. Like the automated coffee brewer, this pour-over kettle is cheaper than other pour-over or electric hot water kettles. We're extremely excited about these new products and look forward to more from Bonavita.

Great change from a pour-over

I love that I'm just weighing coffee and grinding it. After seasoning my filter, I just have to hit a button and I know this machine is going to yield a great cup. Hotter water = greater extraction and this coffee maker nails it.

Finally...a decent (and hot!) cup of coffee

This is the best coffee maker ever. It does exactly what I've always wanted a coffee maker to do: turn on and brew a flavorful, hot cup of coffee. Nothing more, nothing less. I love the simple design for it makes the unit easy to operate and clean. I couldn't be happier with this purchase and highly recommend this product.

Great Service Great Coffee Maker

Our coffee maker broke down and I ordered the Bonavita after reading so many good reviews. I asked Prima if they could expedite the order on Sunday. It arrived at my house in Minnesota on Wednesday. Love how hot the coffee is and the flavor is great. Thanks Prima!

Best coffee ever!

We are coffee snobs of the first order! We've had some of the best from all over the world and, after reading a good review of the Bonavita, we bought one. We couldn't be happier . It's great and we highly recommend it to anyone who cares about, not just good coffee, but excellent coffee. It's well worth the money.

Bonavita Coffee Automatic Brewer

It makes very good coffee! The carafe pouring spout needs to be improved. I spill coffee most of the time when filling my cup.

Easy to use, exactly as discribed by Bonavita

Have had a couple of weeks to brew the best tasting coffee. Every cup from the first to the last is hot and tastes great. So glad we purchase this coffee maker.

Bonavita BV1800

" I wanted the Bonavita BV1800 to replace the typical countertop coffemaker. I was convinced that my old machine did not properly heat the water, coffee was bland. The Bonavita BV1800 is fabulous, heats the water quite well. Even my pot of store bought " half-caf" tastes much better than before. The Bonavita brews so much faster. I also notice that the Bonavita brews much faster than my previous machine. Ahh, the good life. Bob R, Syracuse, NY"

Love it!

I have read carefully through most of the complaints and find the problems described not bothersome to me. I purchased glass carafe given issues with the thermal one. The coffee tastes amazing even though I have very high expectations and consider myself a coffee connoisseur. Great purchase.

Great Customer Service

I purchased the bonavita glass carafe BV1800 on the recommendation of my sister. My girlfriend had a small cheap plastic 2-cup brewing machine, with no heating element to keep the coffee hot. The size and features of this machine are just right for her needs. It works well and it is nice that you must remove and rinse the piece holding the filtered coffee grounds after brewing and before pouring, it keeps the unit clean and prevents laziness. Nice machine, good price - slightly lower price was matched quickly and pleasantly as promised, after one quick phone call.

Not bad for the price

Pros: - Fine cup of joe - Quiet - Fast - Ability to make as little as 2c or as much as 8c - Auto shut-off for heat pad Cons (honestly, just my personal preferences): - Can't interrupt brew to pour a cup - Lid can't stay on carafe during brew cycle - Uses #4 cone filters instead of basket-type Bottom line: I can live with this coffee maker not having all the features I want because it does make superb coffee and gets it done quick too. I've seen it go for more than $150 elsewhere, but I wouldn't pay more than that; $150 is a just price for this machine.

Great minimalist coffe maker

I bought this to replace a Mr. Coffee. It makes fantastic coffee. Even though it doesn't have an automatic timer nor the ability to pour a cup while brewing - the brewed coffee is worth the wait.

Great Coffee!

This thing makes the best coffee I have ever had out of a drip coffee maker. The one knock I would have on the machine is that the basket for the filter sits directly on top of the carafe when brewing so the basket has to be emptied and cleaned before you can pour your cup of delicious coffee. That being said the coffee is amazing.

Much better coffee now . . . but

I bought this coffee maker because it was one of the few that heats water sufficiently for good brewing. I really like the quality of the coffee now, much better than my standard Mr. Coffee maker I was using. One thing I'm not as pleased about: the warmer doesn't seem to keep the coffee as hot as I'd like, so when I put some coffee in my travel mug, it is much cooler than what I want or would expect. The other thing--though I knew this before my purchase: it would be good if they could add a timer, so I could pre-set the machine the night before for my early-morning brew. Otherwise, this is a great machine and much better than the standard brewers.

Have used it for 2 weeks

Sorry to say, this machine is overpriced. I thought it would brew better but I'm going back to my 2 year old, $60., Cuisinart machine. I taste NO difference between the machines. The supposed hotter and different drip don't make a difference to me. I just gave the ole Cuisinart a good white vinegar cleaning, and I'm sending the Bonavita back. Thank you for allowing me to return it. I think it is a good machine, but you need to cut the price way back.

OK,not great

Have had Krups and Capresso coffee makers in the past. This one is no better nor no worse just much more expensive.  Not worth the price.
