Reviews

This easy-to-clean and easy-to-use coffee maker brews up to eight excellent cups of coffee at a time, without taking up much counter space.

Consensus

For the coffee connoisseur who wants an expert-approved cup without much fuss or breaking the bank.

If you want the best-tasting pot of machine-brewed coffee, usability be damned, the Bonavita BV1900TS is the coffee maker for you. In two separate rounds of tests with different panels, tasters praised coffee made with this machine for its overall flavor and balance—it also came the closest to achieving an ideal “total dissolved solids” reading in our controlled testing.

No frills, just great coffee. You may need to adjust the amount of coffee grounds needed to make YOUR perfect cup of coffee. The instructions call for using a bit too much coffee in the basket for my taste (and I like strong coffee) so it may take a couple of pots to get it right. But the simple, straight forward design looks great on the counter. The carafe keeps the coffee drinkably warm for several hours. So far, we love it.

I love this machine. First, and most importantly, it gets the water up to the proper temperature of 195-205 and it gets the water through in a reasonable amount of time (about six minutes). Additionally, it is very compact, stylish, and simple to use and clean. The thermal carafe is about the same as all thermal carafes, it needs to be preheated to keep the coffee warm a reasonable amount of time. I do wish the machine had an indicator showing when pre-infusion is on
