Meet the next generation of coffee brewers, the Bonavita BV1900TS. With features like a redesigned showerhead, more powerful heating element, and a pre-infusion brew mode, you can take your coffee to the next level.

 

Announcing the newest brewer in Bonavita's automatic line: the Next-Gen BV1900TS. Building on the success of the BV1800TH, this new SCAA-certified brewer has rethought and optimized the automatic brewing process. The BV1900TS features a newly-designed sprayhead, which, coupled with the new basket-style filter basket promotes more even saturation and extraction. The 1500 watt heater ensures that the steady shower of water over the grounds is consistently around 200-203 F, and remains that hot for the entire brewing process. Most automatic home coffee brewers suffer from the same pitfall: they simply do not brew hot enough, often falling below 190 F. The result is a sour, thin cup of coffee, which leaves much to be desired. Bonavita's line of brewers has corrected that mistake, which has earned them the seal of certification from the Specialty Coffee Association of America.

The new basket-style filter holder fits most 8-12 cup size paper filters (base width of 3 1/4"), and the flat bottom promotes more even extraction of the whole coffee bed. The stainless steel thermal carafe holds 40 ounces, and will keep your brews warm for up to two hours. The new pre-infusion feature allows you to pre-wet your coffee prior to brewing, which helps fresh coffee degas and prevents spillover. The overall footprint is smaller as well, making this brewer even more countertop-friendly than before. As ever, Bonavita's design is perfect for coffee geeks and coffee lovers alike, with a device that is both easy to use and fine-tuned for exceptional coffee brewing.

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.

Superb Cup

The 1900 makes an exceptional cup of coffee without any bells and whistles. The water temperature is higher than other in home brewers and the end product is all one could ask for.

Wonderful product

I used to use a Bunn Phase Brew which provided the right temp for proper brewing but it was always a bit bitter. I had always tried to justify the price of the technivorm but....The Bonavita 1900 is every bit as good and at a much better price, especially at Prima! The only complaint I've heard and agree is the carafe doesn't keep it hot for long. I use a separate carafe that keeps it hot longer, if it lasts long enough to cool down, it is so tasty! I also bought one for my office. One of my regulars thought I served chocolate coffee; the only thing different was this coffee maker!

65 years as a coffee fan

I wanted to replace a failing but pretty good system and happened on this product. Some reviews nearly put me off, then I noticed other site reviews and took a leap. Some reviews were hard to believe anyway. After my first few pots I am convinced this is a keeper. Even using older coffee. The carafe also works great. Hot for over an hour easily

Great coffee, fast and easy

The brewer makes great coffee, and it's great for entertaining. I would definitely get it again. My only complaint is that you can't pour from the carafe without the lid without spilling (coffee runs down the side), and after cleaning, the carafe won't completely drain when turned upside down.

Don't know why I waited so long to buy this! It definitely lives up to it's reputation, makes great tasting drip coffee. Only negative aspect is the carafe does not pour well when the lid is not on. This is a little inconvenient when filling the coffee maker with water to brew a pot.

We have only had the coffee maker for two weeks, but love it's sleek design and simple operation. Coffee stays hot in the carafe which seems very sturdy. We gave away our other coffee maker that had all the bells and whistles, but often didn't brew consistently. This one is a winner.

Very Good Coffee

I have had this a few weeks now and very impressed with the coffee it brews. It does not have many bells and whistles, but that is not what I was interested in. It would be nice if I could easily get a cup before it has finished it's complete brew, but other than that it is great thus far. If you want features but a different model... If you want great brewed coffee but this one.

Simply a fantastic product.

This a a very simple, well designed coffee maker. I haven't used the model before it but I imagine the switch from a cone type filter to a flat on was a good idea. The coffee comes out nice and tasty and holds the heat in the insulated carafe for an hour or two. There is no warmer on this machine. The carafe acts as a thermos.

Was looking for a thermal carafe replacement coffee maker and this has lived up to all the great reviews for the price. Simple to use and no bright digital menus or timers. Delivers a smooth pot of coffee at the right temperature. The thermal carafe keeps the coffee hot for an adequate time to enjoy later in the morning with no leaking or dripping on the pour.

Just about Perfect!

What an incredible machine. It makes outstanding coffee. I've been doing pour over for a while, and decided it was time to to save some time in the morning. I was expecting a drop off in quality, was I surprised to the contrary. The simple design was one of the features that attracted me initially, along with it being certified by SCAA. But after using it now for about a month I can candidly say it's the best home brewer I've ever owned. The shower head is second to none, very even distribution over my coffee grounds(like pour over). It's footprint on my countertop is small. It's stainless steel skin is very attractive. I think it's the best home brewer available today.

Best Coffee maker i've ever owned

I used a grind and brew coffee maker for 10 years and thought it was the bomb. It finally gave up so i started my search for a replacement. Thinking I was going to buy another grind and brew I started there BUT wasn't really that happy with the cleaning pain of those products. In my search I came across Bonavita and the 1900. What really impressed me was the consistent temperature it brewed at and simplistic use and clean up. So when I started using it I realized what coffee was supposed to taste like. I do use "Fu Fu"" creamers BUT cut them down by 75% since I didn't need to mask the bitterness of my old coffee maker. I also like to pull the lid off the carafe and let the coffee cool to use as Ice Coffee. Again OUTSTANDING results. I travel a bit and when i come home great coffee is something i really enjoy. I'm so glad I bought this coffee maker.

flavor

compared to my previous coffee maker the flavor of the brew from the Bonavita 1900 was by far so much better. Recently entertained a family get together and everyone complimented the coffee from the Bonavita. If you drink your coffee black, the temperature is perfect, however, if you add cream you may need to microwave.

Great tasting coffee

Purchased for my office. Had no idea that the drip coffee maker's design would make much difference in flavor but I'm a believer now. This unit draws out all the flavor of the coffee beans to produce a well-balanced flavorful brew every time. The pre-infusion option coupled with the right water temp is probably why coffee tastes so good from this unit.

Best Drip Coffee Maker Ever!

What do you want in the perfect drip coffee maker? Well, you want simplicity of design, quality craftsmanship, and a great cup of coffee. And this coffee maker gets you all of this exactly as advertised. I used to "need" my coffee in the morning. Now, I "want" my cup of coffee in the morning. Well worth the price, and my wife and I just love it. If there was one minor improvement I would ask for it would be that the carafe kept smaller brews hotter a little longer, but that is such a small dig compared to the positives.

Best coffee maker I've ever owned

Nice design is clean looking in our kitchen. Also has a small footprint which is nice since our kitchen counter space is limited. So far, I've used only store bought coffee that's pre-ground and taking this into account, the results have surprised me. Can't wait to get a grinder and some good roast. I could have spent a lot more for a coffee maker for sure, and had all the bells and whistles but I didn't need a clock ( how many clocks does one need? ) or auto brew, just automatic off works for me. Brewing process is simple and clean up is easy.

Great-tasting coffee

This is our second Bonavita. The first one quit working after about 2 years, but we take the blame for it not lasting longer because we did not maintain it properly, i.e., we never descaled it and never put the removable lid and shower head in the dishwasher for periodic thorough cleaning. We love this machine so much that we bought it again and vowed to follow the recommended maintenance this time. The quality of the brew did suffer as a result of our poor maintenance, we now notice, because we were immediately reminded how great the coffee is coming out of this machine when we brewed our first pot with our new (second) machine. The one design feature I do not like is that the coffee basket is open to air (it just sits directly on top of thermal pot), so that if you want to set your machine up with water and coffee the night before, the coffee is actually exposed to air that whole time. Our workaround was to put our measured coffee into a small airtight glass dish so that we just stumble into the kitchen, we just have to dump the coffee in the basket with filter already in place and water already in reservoir, and then just turn the machine on. Brews super fast, super hot, and the results are superb coffee.

Finally a great cup of coffee at home!!

I asked at a coffe shop why the coffee at home didn't taste as good and the answer was......you need good coffee, filtered water, and a coffee maker that can reach the right brewing temperatures. I searched the web and found only two coffee makers for home use that reached the correct temps. This is one of them and coffee it produces is great. Just as good as the coffee shop.

The Bonavita makes simply delicious coffee -- the best home-brewed electric drip I have ever tasted. After two months of use, no problems with the thermal carafe. I find that I use almost half the amount of ground coffee I used in other electric drip machines -- and get a robust and rich flavor.

Excellent Coffee with a Minor Design Flaw

My Moccamaster died and I decided to replace it with Bonavita. It does make great coffee and like some of the features like the wide mouth, glasss lined thermos and the compactness of the unit. Moreover, it makes hot fresh coffee. The only thing I ran into when I made full pot with a good quality filter, the coffee overflowed because the liner with the extra coffee plugged up the hole and would not let it drain. I solved the problem by using a gold filter which I used a lot with the Moccamaster. Excellent coffee for the price.

Coffee that tastes like coffee!!

When our favorite maker finally gave up, we searched for a replacement with several mis-steps resulting in the "dishwater" phenomenon. A search online yielded a review in "Cooks Illustrated" which named the Bona Vita as best buy and explained the importance of brew temperature and time. We love our new Bona Vita - ease of use, great thermal properties in carafe, an d good, strong coffee every time.

Great cup of coffee

I bought this coffee maker a year ago to replace a Bunn I'd been using for 10 years. It is a 'Plane Jane' in appearance but makes a very good cup of coffee. On top of good coffee two things stuck out immediately. The Bunn was fast but I didn't realize how much coffee I was using to get a good cup. Using the same amount in the Bonavita was almost to strong to drink. The second was the carafe. I've bought several I didn't care for over the years but this one the lid spins on and off with one finger and doesn't leak when pouring. Not only do I recommend it, I just sent one as a present to a friend.

Excellent brewer features for this price

Since becoming a coffee roaster professionally, three years ago, I have been researching which brewer could replace my old brewer and still be cost effective.This brewer does that! I was pleased to note evidence that the grinds had achieved a bloom, the taste of the brewed coffee shows the subtle notes I was expecting from the beans, and the thermal carafe holds the coffee temperature for about three hours. I'm beyond pleased and understand now why this brewer is recommended by so many :)

Great tasting coffee

The Good - this machine makes great tasting coffee. The So So Part - This machine replaced our K Cup maker that was fast and make adequate tasting, expensive coffee. There are more things to do in order to make coffee with this machine. If you make less than 8 cups and want the coffee to remain hot in the carafe for more than one hour, you have to pre-heat it with hot water. When it's done brewing you need to wait a few more minutes for all the water to drain out of the filter basket. When you remove the filter basket to place the top on the carafe, you need to either put it straight in the trash or set it on a small bowl because it's going to leak a few more drops of coffee. It's just different than any other maker we've had and I'm still adjusting.

Great Cup of Coffee

I purchased this coffee maker about two weeks ago, and it makes a great cup of coffee. It makes it quickly too. It uses less coffee than the maker it replaced, and after a little experimentation I've learned not to grind the beans to fine. For some reason a little coarser grind produces a stronger brew. Unfortunately this coffee maker is not perfect. The design is a bit odd, with the basket sitting atop the pot, rather than being attached to the shower head. Also, the max fill line does not allow all of the coffee to make it to the carafe, some is inevitably left in the basket at the end of the brew cycle. You should not fill the reservoir to the max line. Finally, the carafe does not allow you to pour to the last drop without removing the lid. With a lesser cup of coffee that would not be a big deal, but with a brew like this I want every last drop.

Easy to use and makes good coffee

Upgraded from a cheap cone filter machine and this is much easier to use and makes good coffee. My one complaint is with the carafe's design. The molded plastic top extends over the inside edge of the metal in such a way that it's hard to get the last bit of liquid out which makes it difficult to clean.

Finally! Good to Great Coffee Consistently

Okay. Finally we're getting good to great coffee consistently. There are still a few variables* that get in the way of "awesome all the time" coffee but we are very happy. We would have given our Bonavita 5 stars but there is a little "inconvenience" to brewing with it. 1. You fill the reservoir with the pot without the pouring lid. (You can put the pouring lid on to fill the reservoir but you're adding steps). The pour from just the pot isn't exactly neat. 2. You need to remember after the brewing is done to put the pouring lid on to keep the coffee hot but not too soon because you want the coffee to stop dripping from the brewing basket. 3. You need a spot to store either the brewing basket or the pouring lid. Only one is used at a time. That all said, the coffee is now consistently good or better. We will "suffer" the drill to have good Joe. The quality of the Bonavita is obvious. * variables - type coffee, type grind, packed down or loose (I'm packing it to get a better soak), pre-brew temp of the pot

The coffee made Is great not bitter at all. The carafe cools off in about 2 hours, wish it kept it hotter longer. Serving after serving the coffee is taste great.

excellent coffee maker

Making coffee is that easy with Bonavita!!! And the brew is super fast and the quality is fantastic. Easy to clean. The only drawback is the container is hard to empty and there is always some water left inside.

Very nice coffee maker!

We bought two of these (one for decaf for me and one for regular for my husband) at the recommendation of our son, who had bought one and loves it. It brews a fast and tasty cup of coffee. The pouring spout is a little awkward to use, and it's difficult to get all the liquid out of the pot because of the design of the lip, but these are minor quibbles.

Makes great coffee quickly.

We bought the Bonavita with reservations due to the price, since we have always used run on the mill drip makers like Mr. Coffee. When we first used it we had trouble getting the lid on the pot and thought, "for the price we shouldn't be having a problem like this"! After putting it on a few times we got the hang of it and it seems okay now. I like the coffee we brew in the Bonavita and the simplicity of the system. It actually brews the coffee pretty quickly. If it holds up over time we will be happy with the purchase.

First cups of coffee are excellent - next ones are disappointing

I researched long & hard for a $$ upgrade to my home coffee brewer & settled on the Bonavita 1900 (have a Technivorm in the office & LOVE its coffee). I've had the Bonavita for about a month and so far: love the look it's sleek, love the footprint as I have limited counter space, would have been nice to have an auto-start timer but I knew I was buying without, quite annoyed that the lid needs to be screwed on in order to pour, LOVE LOVE LOVE the very first cup(s) of coffee that I pour, HATE HATE HATE the horribly designed/engineered "thermal" carafe (which is warm externally - immediate telltale that it's absolutely not thermal) because the delicious coffee inside gets cold literally within 20-30 mins. This is fine on weekdays as I only have 1 cup at home, but horrible on the weekend as I like drink multiple cups over the first couple hours that I'm awake. Also means I need to drink that first cup IMMEDIATELY after the brew is complete. Pretty sure I read a product review that said the coffee stays warm for 4hrs+ (that is EASILY the case with my Technivorm at work). Never owned this brand before so not sure if the 1800 series had a similar issue. I was hoping it was just a defective carafe I had & could swap with a new one but looks like from this site alone that they are too many people with the same issue for it to be a simple/scarce manufacturing defect. I guess I'll try the company but not hopeful about the resolution...

Good cup of coffee

I pre-ordered the coffee maker and anxiously waited to receive it. I have been using it for about two weeks. It makes a good cup of coffee and looks great on the counter - not too big and easy to use. The carafe is the only feature which disappointed me. The coffee stays hot for less than an hour and I take a couple of leisurely hours to drink coffee and get through the morning.

Great Tasting Coffee!!

I have been enjoying my new Bonavita Coffee Maker for just about two weeks now! I love the way my coffee tastes! The coffee maker is very simplistic and looks nice. It doesn't take up much room on my counter at all. My only wish is that the water was brewed to hotter temperature as I use creamer so that tends to cool coffee down. Since I like a very hot cup of coffee, I just put it in the microwave for 30 seconds and it is good to go.

Happy - Good Value

Màkes excellent cup of joe. Would appreciate larger capacity but brews fast. Also more convenient if filter cup no nested in carafe, but minor point. Teamed up with Zero Water filter pitcher and airtight coffee canister for best cup every AM. No more trips to Star-Not My -bucks!

It works

It works. My wife is no great coffee connoisseur, but she does appreciate that her coffee is better and kept warm. I don't drink coffee much.

Nice brewer

I have had this for a week now... The heat is appropriate (measured with an instant read thermometer), the saturation of the grounds is even. And, it's faster than my Bunn Phase Brew (the heating process is different). I'm not sure if the cone basket vs flat basket is making a huge difference, but I don't have it dialed in yet. As a coffee roaster, I taste a lot of coffee, and this does a good job at a great morning cup.

Disappointed

-oddly enough, it takes me longer to make coffee with this 'simple' machine -the coffee is hot enough when it is made, but the thermal carafe does not keep the coffee hot for very long -also don't like pouring with the carafe, you can't just pour directly

makes a good cup of coffee

After reading a Cnet review, I ordered this coffee maker. It does everything as well as I expected and is simple to operate and clean. And it brews really flavorful coffee. However, I'm *really* disappointed in the insulation property of the carafe. Coffe stored in the carafe is cold within 2 hours :-(

BV 1900 ts

I received the Bonavita 1900 TS today, unpacked and ran it through the pre-use procedures and noticed that one of the black tabs that holds the shower head to the water tank was broken off. I don't think it will affect the operation of the brewer, just hate buying something and it being broke before I even get to use it, especially at this price. Can't wait to brew a pot in the morning, I have the Bonavita 1800 and it works great, if I find anything negative far as the brewing I will post an updated review.I like the new look, I hope the broken tab doesn't mean their quality is slipping. I rated it average due to the fact that it had the broken tab, lets see how it goes from here.

Unremarkable coffee maker with an insanely high price

First, Prima Coffee rocks: they have great selection, an easy to navigate website, and they ship FAST. Second, this coffee maker is remarkalbe only for its insanely high price. A few remarks about the unremarkable. It’s output (with the same freshly ground coffee I’ve used for years) tastes as good and hot as the $30 coffee maker it replaced. Except for the carafe, its all plastic and some sections are covered with stainless steel veneer. It appears to be solidly build, but so are many other coffee makers. It’s simple to operate, but so are many other basic low end coffee makers. I didn’t see any design innovations, and the carafe’s design is rather poor: you have to screw on the lid to safely pour coffee. You just can remove the basket and pour, else the coffee will run down the carafe, no matter how you pour. I’ve never seen anything like it. Bottom line is that this manufacturer has--by chance or systematically--elevated the art of internet marketing to new heights. I based this purchase on a review at the the wirecutter website: they raved about it, and I fail to see why. It’s an unremarkable coffee maker with an insanely high price.

Bonavita Coffee Maker BV1900TS

I have been using the Bonavita Coffee Maker BV1900TS for several days with mixed feelings about it. It makes good coffee, but not incredible coffee. I have an old $20 percolator that does as well. The thermal carafe is worthless ... by the time I go for a second cup of coffee ... within 30 minutes ... the coffee is lukewarm at best. Usability is good ... easy to make coffee and easy to clean. Prima Coffee was excellent ... they shipped the order quickly and I had the coffee maker quickly. Overall, I would not buy this coffee maker or recommend it to anyone.
