Bonavita Porcelain Immersion Dripper


The BonaVita Dripper is a full-immersion coffee brewer that allows us to steep coffee for a controlled amount of time, then strain rapidly by opening the rubber-sealed valve at the bottom of the brewer.  The device uses the Melitta #4 paper filter, found in the accessories sections of our online shops or at most grocery stores.  For a thicker body and heavier flavor, the metal Kone filter by Able may be used instead.

The BonaVita's full-immersion extraction will highlight the richer, deeper tones of the coffee you are brewing.  Savory, nutty, caramely flavors will be exaggerated.  The Melitta paper filter will retain fine particles, leaving a clean texture with full flavor, a unique quality when it comes to coffee brewers.

  3. After this 30 second pre-infusion, begin pouring with a full stream. Pour up to 400g as quickly as possible to begin full extraction.
  4. Put the included lid on the brewer to preserve heat. Let the coffee steep for 2:30 (includes the time used for the pre-infusion).
