Serious Eats review: "The Best Simple Coffee Maker - BV1900"

Coffee test cups

Serious Eats, January 18, 2018: The Bonavita is one of the faster models we tested, and it earned high scores in nearly all of our tastings. A single switch governs all of its operations, making the brewing process incredibly simple. The only design knock is the brew basket: It sits directly on top of the open stainless-steel carafe, which means you have to fully remove it and deal with the wet grounds before you can enjoy a cup of coffee (on the flip side, maybe that discourages the bad habit of leaving the stale, spent grounds in the machine for hours on end).
