Bonavita 8-Cup Brewer
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.
