Bonavita 8 Cup Coffee Maker, Thermal Carafe


Bonavita 8 Cup Coffee Maker, Thermal Carafe


The BonaVita Automatic Coffee Maker is a simple coffee dripper made to emulate the flavors of pour-over quality coffee.  The brewer employs a standard Melitta filter available online or at your local grocery store. The temperature regulator ensures that the water is the appropriate temperature as it passes through the coffee bed, a feature that is surprisingly lacking in the world of automatic brewers. A shower-head dripper disperses water evenly over the surface of the coffee, allowing an even extraction -- another obvious but often overlooked feature. 

These simple concepts result in a consistent pot of coffee that is reminiscent of a V60 or Chemex, highlighting the brightness and sweetness of the coffee.  Your coffee will be balanced, clean, and easy to share with friends and family.
