America's Top Coffee Experts Pick the Best Gear to Brew Your Morning Cup
The Brewer, by unanimous decision: Bonavita 8-Cup One Touch Thermal Carafe Coffee Brewer (MSRP $159.99)
Kyle Glanville: The most recent 8-cup Bonavita is the connoisseur’s choice. The brew is as good as anything you’re going to get in your home. It’s what I use in my house. The top pick used to be from the Dutch manufacturer Technivorm, but their Moccamaster brewer only sprays water to one part of the coffee. Bonavita has a square brew basket, which creates an even bed for water to flow through the coffee, and that small detail makes a huge difference in the taste of your coffee. I'm frustrated by their carafe. It's crap. But the rest of it is phenomenal.
