With a Bonavita 8-cup Stainless Steel Carafe Coffee Brewer, you're just one press of a button away from a perfect cup of coffee. We've refined our brewers down to the essential elements so it's simple to consistently brew great coffee. The excellence of the Bonavita 8-cup coffee brewer is recognized by the Specialty Coffee Association of America as part of its Certified Home Brewer Program. At Bonavita we believe simple is good, so we've refined our coffee brewers down to the essential elements needed to brew great coffee. Simple operation means it's easy to brew a quality pot of coffee every time. The Bonavita 8-cup brewer features one-touch brewing and automatic power-off. Bonavita brewers are fitted with a powerful and precise heater that reaches the optimal temperature quickly and maintains that temperature throughout the brew. Bonavita's wide showerhead design evenly distributes water over the coffee grounds to ensure uniform extraction. The showerhead works in harmony with our precise flat-bottomed filter basket to ensure even saturation. The result is an optimal flavor profile at your desired strength.
The coffee it brews is very good, but no better than my current coffeemaker and more of a hassle to use (for my particular situation). However, the thermal carafe simply doesn't keep coffee hot enough. I tested it against the current thermal carafe I use and it did indeed lose 10 degrees more an hour.
Purchased this on sale. Was using a Clever Coffee Dripper prior to purchasing this unit. Honestly, there were no complaints with that method other than sometimes you want more than a single cup.
The Bonavita is extremely easy to operate and clean. Coffee tastes just as good as making it manually.
Love it. No regrets. Recommended
Makes excellent coffee very quickly. Easy to use. Carafe keeps coffee hot for several hours. Easy to clean. Only complaint is that when filling it with water, inevitably, I end up with a spill onto the counter. That's annoying enough that I can't quite give it five stars.

Thank you so much for your review! We take your feedback to heart and working on improving our carafe in a few different ways, including its ease of pouring.
This is an excellent coffee maker. I bought it because I am the only coffee drinker in my household (unless we have guests, which is rare) so I wanted something to make a small amount of coffee without taking up too much counter space. I had also heard that this model is recommended because it brews coffee at the optimum temperatures, and I wanted to see how that would impact the taste. I had heard that ATK liked the Technivorm Moccamaster but that is a much larger and more expensive machine, and it seemed to involve a lot more fiddling than I am interested in (I like good coffee, but I don't have time or interest in grinding beans fresh daily, etc). I have had the maker about a week and so far am very impressed by how good it tastes. It also fits nicely on my counter, even with upper cabinets.
This does not have a programmable timer and you cannot pour coffee while it is still brewing, but these were not features I needed or wanted. I like that all you have to do is push a single button to start brewing. The maker is designed to have either the filter basket over the open carafe OR the pour lid on, not both. I have not found this to be an issue, as I switch the basket for the lid a minute or two after brewing finishes and the basket goes right into the dishwasher. With the lid on, the carafe does a great job of keeping the coffee hot for several hours without further cooking it the way a heater element below a glass pot would. These are really all design preferences that worked for me and what I needed. Definitely happy with this choice!
This is a great coffee pot. We have a Moccamaster for our home and wanted a better coffee pot for our camper but didn’t want to spend the $$$ for another Moccamaster. The thermal pot keeps the coffee hot.
My hand barely fits into the pot for cleaning but I do have big hands.
This replaces an earlier model where the carafe lid was not pouring well, but had it for several years. It generally works well, but I've had to reset the top a few times. The on switch goes immediately off, and I've learned that the top is not in full contact with the water holder. When I push down, the top snaps in place and the brewing goes fine. This may be a defect and I might need to replace the unit. Will give it a few more days.
