It’s been quite a while since I have been willing to share Bonavita Coffee Maker Reviews for you guys.
Bonavita is known for their dedicated work and the quality products in the industry. First of all, I did some research on the brand and their line of products. There were around 7-8 Coffee Makers available. Then I shorted out the Top 5 of them.
Just believing on the Internet doesn’t work.
That’s why I got in touch with my friend James who runs a departmental store. I asked him if he could help me out with getting those 5 Bonavita models, some of them were readily available except for 1 or 2.
Got 3/5 units, and then I prepared a chart for myself on how I am going to use the unit. Tested out the 3 units for a time period of 3 weeks, and wrote down the necessary observations.
You may ask what about the other 2 remaining models, I asked my close companions and friends if they had it. Later I got a hands-on experience and worked out the review for you.
Before I start with the reviews, I would like to make a serious confession. All the reviews given here are solely my personal views. They may change from one person to another, depending on various interest factors. But they all are true to my conscience.
So, here we go!
One of the most crucial things in Coffee Making is maintaining the right temperature. This exact issue is solved on the Bonavita BV1900TS, and it ensures you a peaceful time brewing your Cup of Love. If the Coffee remains cold or too hot, then this could badly affect the flavors. But why is this Carafe Coffee Maker too popular?
They are among those few brands recommended by the Speciality Coffee Association(SCA). This itself is a big achievement, as only a handful number of brands passes all the SCA’s serious technical standards and gets this recognition.
Precise and Powerful Heating
Bonavita Coffee Maker is all famous for the fast and powerful coffee brewing heater on it. Along with the power, you also get a preciseness which you rarely find on any unit.
Again you get an optimal brewing with the precise 1500 watt power heater running on this Bonavita BV1900TS. You get the option of the optimal temperature which falls in the range of 195°F to 200°F.
Also, the system is made in a way that the coffee is quickly brewed, and it also maintains the warmth till the brewing continues.
Plastic in use, but BPA-free!
There are certain components of the Bonavita Coffee Maker which are made of plastic. But all the plastic materials used here are all BPA-free. This is the Bisphenol A which is a chemical which is used in the making of certain plastic and resins. They are mainly found on the internal coating of the metal cans.
Some studies have shown that the BPA on the cans could penetrate your food or juice in the cans, and eventually damage your body. Yippee! Your Bonavita is free of BPA!
Three Models to Choose from
The same BV1900TS Bonavita Coffee Maker is available in three different models. You can either choose a Stainless Steel Carafe with Black Base, or the one with the Glass Carafe. The third choice is a Stainless Steel Carafe. Here all the carafe keeps on changing, while the construction on the top remains the same.
Therefore, you can choose the one which matches your requirement or need. This is definitely a good way to let the user decide the material.
This is a special mode that runs every time you brew your coffee. Bonavita Coffee Maker wets and saturates all the coffee grounds so that they are evenly brewed while you make your coffee. This wetting of the coffee grounds helps with enhancing the flavors and getting the best coffee extraction.
It is important that the unit offers consistency everytime it performs. This is achieved by the Bonavita BV1900TS with all the basic brewing techniques adopted here. You just have to use all the key elements, like some fresh coffee beans, clean water, and the right time-temperature combination.
Operation of the brewing is also simple, so no matter how much coffee you want to make you can do it quickly. The One-touch brewing gives you the feature of brewing the coffee with just a single touch of a button. With the automatic power-off utility, you don’t have to keep a check on the coffee all the time.
Though it comes with many super awesome features on it, I found theBonavita Coffee Maker overpriced. There are other units which offer similar features for half the price. That’s a matter of concern, and so hopefully Bonavita will reduce the price. Other than this, it’s a good choice & something that you can trust upon for all the Coffee Cravings.
This sleek in design Coffee Brewer offers you a 5-Cup coffee drink, instead of the 8-Cup brew size. For those looking for a smaller brewing choice, can go with this Bonavita BV1500TS model.
It’s a stainless steel Bonavita Coffee Maker which comes with a silver and black construction. That’s a killer combo and something which goes with all kinds of room decor. Another thing taken note in here is the temperature changes – your coffee can go from an ‘okay to excellent’ with the right temperature setting.
Bonavita brand and their team focus on making the process easy for the users. They understand how a good coffee is made, and so they have added all the tools needed for making one.
This is an everyday machine, and won’t much demand too! It will work the same on a dreadful Monday morning or a cozy Sunday evening!
Offers the Best Coffee Flavours
It was great to see how the Bonavita Coffee Maker brings all the best flavors to your coffee mug. The Pre-Infusion mode gets all the coffee grounds drenched before they undergo brewing. This helps with improving the flavor and even degasses the Coffee drink.
With the optimal brewing temperature, you can easily prepare a delicious cup of Coffee without any high brewing experience. You don’t have to be an expert to get right brewing on the machine. Just set up all the ingredients, and do the necessary Coffee Maker settings. You are done!
Also, the standard temperature range goes from 195°F to 205°F which is actually the optimal brewing range. The efficient heater with the precise 1100 watt power also gives a due support to the overall working.
Perfectly Lined Stainless Steel Carafe (4-5 cup coffee brewing)
I have seen people who always go for less coffee, so for them, a 4-5 Cup brewing will be a good choice.
Bonavita has combined the quality processing and the features of the 8-Cup unit, with a 5-cup batch system. This makes sure that you don’t compromise with the quality just for the sake of fewer coffee cups. Here the coffee is prepared in a batch of 5 cups, with the support of all the programmable settings and options.
Simple on the Design
Yes, I could not stop admiring this Bonavita quality. I am a simple person by nature, and I always go for the simple things in my life. Machines are no perception!
There is no point in looking for a Coffee Maker with high functionalities and brewing option. This is for all the beginners out there, who are making their first ever purchase. Go for the simple units, but yes don’t compromise for the quality.
This Bonavita Coffee Maker BV1500TS is pretty in design, and the simple construction will make you fall for this.
Small Batches – Consistent results
It’s a 5-cup Bonavita Coffee Maker, and they run the machine in batches. These machines are specifically designed and made to perform batch size operation for 4-5 cup sizes.
For better consistent results, you can also use other cool functions like the auto shut-off, and even the one-touch brewing mechanism.
Digital or Non-Digital
There are two models which you can choose from; one is the digital and the other remains the non-digital one. Depending on your interest and preference, you can make the choices. Though the features and options remain the same for both.
As per my experience, this is a good Coffee Maker option out there. But I felt the design is a bit clumsy. The carafe started leaking after a week’s use, and that came in as a shock to me. Improvements need to be made on the designing part, and this could solve out a major part of the quality problem it is currently facing.
A lot of hard work and pain has gone into the development of the next Coffee Brewer on the list. I have got the 1901TS stainless steel model by the Bonavita brand. I agree with that part of the product description that says ‘you are just a few steps away from your coffee once the Bonavita Coffee Maker is in your kitchen’. This indeed worked for me.
This is the next improved version of the original model BV1900TS. Engineers have made a point to consider the performance so that you get a better cup of coffee with each brew. Here the pourability has improved and it even keeps the coffee much warmer than before. All thanks to the stainless steel carafe in Bonavita Coffee Maker set here.
You can start the brewing and coffee preparation with just a one-touch method here. This is a common feature though, present on almost all the Bonavita models.
Still, it makes the working and operation more quick and easy for you, especially if you are a beginner at brewing.
The 1560-Watt Heater
How can one miss out on the temperature factor – the most critical of all. You have to maintain the right temperature throughout the whole processing for an amazing coffee.
Here the 1560-watt heater of Bonavita Coffee Maker makes this process quick for you and gets the coffee to the ideal temperature in a less time.
Easy Pour Spout
This is the major change made from the previous BV1900TS model. The stainless steel made thermal carafe has a 1.5 L capacity, and comes with an easy-pour spout on it. This makes the pouring easy, and lets you do it with much fewer efforts.
With Better Saturation, you get Better Extraction
The wide showerhead design on the Bonavita Coffee Maker gets you an evenly saturated coffee ground. This ensures that the user gets the complete flavors extracted here. In the end, you get the best flavors with the desired amount of coffee strength in your drink.
The unit comes with an audible signal which will alert you when the coffee is ready. This way you don’t have to sit next to your coffee maker and wait through the process. The signal will go off and will let you know when the coffee is ready.
I did find the drying of the coffee grounds a bit stressing with this Coffee Maker. It can take a long time with the drying, so alerting you the issue beforehand. It’s important that you know things clear before the purchase, isn’t it?
The other thing which may bother you during the use is the overflowing filter basket. This will occur only if you have gone wrong with the measurements. So, make sure that you know all the details rightly and you use the right amount for a particular brewing.
Next, we got the 8-cup Automatic Programmable Coffee Brewer, sounds interesting already!
As the name goes, it is a programmable Bonavita Coffee Maker and almost all the tasks can be done with just a press of a button. You are just a press away from a foamy, delicious pot of coffee!
One of the main qualities of a Bonavita Coffee Maker is the simplicity. No matter how high-end the system is, the designing will be simple. This makes the working and handling smooth for both the pro as well as beginners.
Their performance and quality have been recognized by the SCA during the Home Brewer Program.

Optimal Temperature & Brewing
We all know the standard coffee brewing temperature range, and Bonavita works in a way that gets your coffee to reach this optimum temperature quickly. This way you could arrange the things and set the coffee in less time. Best for your slow Monday mornings, you could get your favorite thing done in less time.
This Bonavita Coffee Maker comes with a double-walled structure which makes it durable and heat resistant too.
Along with this, you get a removable lid which retains the heat after the coffee brewing process.
All thanks to the amazing showerhead design on the top of the Coffee Maker which gives the best extraction. This showerhead is pretty wide which ensures that all the coffee grounds get wet. This is what leads to the best level of extraction. In this way, you can get all the flavors in your mug at your preferred strength.
You just need the basic ingredients for making a quality coffee. Good quality coffee beans, filtered clear water, and some patience.
The only thing I felt wrong here is regarding the built quality, and it can be really worked on in the next upgrades. Also, the warmth of the coffee was low after some time. The Keep-Warm mode needs improvement, for those who like to have their coffee after some passed time after brewing.
BV01002US is the final one on the list and is not less than any other model listed out here. Here the developers have focussed on making the process easy and simple for you, with just basic necessities. Once you are ready with it, you can start the process and brew the coffee with Bonavita Coffee Maker right away.
There is an LED indicator for letting you know when to clean the Bonavita Coffee Maker. No need to set any reminder or schedule or whatsoever, since the indicator will remind you about it when its the right time.
With the help of this Warming Plate, you could maintain the warmth of the coffee for a time period of 1.5 hours. Thus, you can brew the coffee and keep it aside for a while before actually having it. This plate will retain the heat and freshness for you so that you enjoy the coffee even after the short break.
This is made possible with the wide showerhead design on this Bonavita Coffee Maker. Wider the showerhead gets, more amount of coffee grounds gets extracted. That’s how it works.
Then there is a V-shaped filter basket on the bottom which makes sure that the grounds are evenly saturated. With all these settings on the Coffee Brewer, you are ought to get the best ever made coffee, with the exact coffee strength you were looking for.
With this feature of Bonavita Coffee Maker, you could shut off the system by itself even if you forget to do so. This will be helpful to those who believe in multi-tasking, and can’t just keep doing one work at a time.
This is a unique technique in which the grounds are drenched with water before the actual brewing begins. With this you could get the best flavors out of your favorite coffee, and also makes sure that no amount of coffee ground gets wasted.
I came across a review which states that the system requires brewing a minimum of 6-8 cups, then only the right amount of the coffee gets extracted. So, if you want to make a 6 cup coffee, then you may get a weaker coffee as the result. I find this thing really disappointing since the machine should be able to work equally good no matter how much coffee is prepared.
A Good Coffee is just like a Good Food which requires the clean and fresh ingredients when mixed and cooked together, gives out an amazing flavourful dish. In the same way, Coffee works in with the freshly ground coffee beans with the support of a quality Coffee Maker.
Bonavita Coffee Maker Reviews rightly understands this and offers you the best platform about all the quick and efficient brewing methods.
