So Worth It!
I ordered the Bonvita Coffeemaker along with the Bodum Bistro Burr Ginder from Sur la Table in January. We have had them both for 2 months now, and could not be more pleased.

I did substantial research and read alot of reviews on various sites before placing the order.

Our morning ritual is to have coffee and read the paper together. My husband usually gets up first so he grinds the perfect amount and drops it in the filter to be brewed. It is quick and aromatic; the aroma calls me out of bed. And may I say-- he would not do it if it wasn't simple! ... A carafe style pot is an important feature in order to enjoy our coffee while relaxing in the living area. The coffee is hot and stays hot even on weekends when we linger longer.

Sur la Table has a generous/convenient return policy which is is why we placed the order with them (just in case).

Definitely would recommend both products! They are designed extremely well both functionally and aesthetically

Smooth cup of Joe
The coffee maker is the most important appliance in my kitchen, and I have spared no expense on a lot of different makes and models of espresso machines. I have now simplified things with just my Nespresso milk frother and a more reliable drip coffee maker. However, I was tired of my mini Cuisinart occasionally spewing water and grounds out from under the basket, and began searching for another machine but still wanted a smaller one that would not take up valuable counter space. Also wanted a thermal carafe this time. Not at all disappointed with the Bonavita. It is definitely the smoothest cup of coffee (Illy) I have been able to make at home. And it really is very fast... I can brew 5 cups (2.5 mugs) in about the same time as it takes for the Nespresso to froth the milk. The carafe keeps it nice and hot and no bitter taste from sitting on a warming plate. I store it perpendicular on the countertop and it does not take up any more space than my mini Cuisinart. The only trade off with having a carafe is that I now have to store the drip basket somewhere after swapping it out for the carafe lid that keeps the coffee hot. Auto shut off is a nice feature too

Wonderful coffee maker
I did a lot of research on electric coffee pots and this one came out at the top of my list. Coffee tastes great, stays hot for a long time in the thermal pot, way longer than our old Krups. And it doesn't hurt it looks good on the counter

On The Bandwagon
The Bonvita delivers! The most important element in a good cup of coffee, of course, is the coffee.

So, start there, then use the Bonvita: Consistent, right temp, and as easy to use as a mass-market brew machine.

I do find it necessary for the filter to be wetted before the coffee is added to the cone. Sometimes the filter collapses and the water runs between the filter and the cone - skipping the coffee. Ack! thin- coffee. Ack!

But I am certainly a cheerful coffee brewer in the morning these days

Excellent Coffee Maker
I spent a lot of time researching drip coffee makers before making this purchase and I'm very happy with the results. Prior to owning this coffee maker, I made coffee using the Eva Solo...which yielded very good coffee, but was too time consuming. This coffee maker heats the water to the correct temperature before it is poured through the ground beans. It brews quickly and yields a great cup of coffee in small or larger quantities. In combination with the nespresso milk frother, making coffee at home is now an absolute joy

I purchased this coffeemaker because of several features: easy to read numbers on water tank; easy to fill water tank; glass-lined carafe advertised to keep coffee hot for two hours; showerhead drip system; heats coffee to exact temperature; and reasonable price.

I was very disappointed in this coffeemaker. The carafe keeps coffee hot for about 20 minutes definitely not two hours. The drip starts immediately whether I put in cold or warm water so I can't see how it heats it to the optimum brewing temp. It drips very fast so it's necessary to use a lot of coffee to get a strong brew.

I returned it

Technivorm clone
It's good that slt sells only the thermal carafe version. Glass carafes with heating elements burn the coffee within 20 minutes.

This is a smaller volume Technivorm clone (8 cups vs. 10+cups) at half the price. It lacks the Technivorm's flow rate switch, which allows the Technivorm to brew stronger coffee, so you will have to determine for yourself if this machine makes a strong enough brew, and adjust your grind

Great coffee no surprises
Back from the land of single serve coffee makers, this was selected as the most basic no frills affordable drip brewer. The coffee is superior, lacking the bitterness of lesser brewers. I use milk, which I do preheat in the microwave. The thermal carafe keeps coffee for two or so hours, hot enough so that steam is still apparent. The cover is functional and there is no problem finding a place for it. I use fair trade coffee beans and two tablespoons per five oz of water. Even pre ground mass market coffee tastes better

Superb Coffee Maker
I had to retire my krups aroma coffee pot and was looking for a great replacement. Considered the technivorm but pricey and not easy to use. This is easy and the pot works like a pour over (Hario Cup). The coffee tastes wonderful, hot and non acidic. I do not have to use as much coffee either. I can not say enough about what a great cup of coffee this pot makes. Also, love the glass carafe inside the thermal pot. Easy to clean and no more stainless steel taste.

Love it! Wish I Could Have Kept It.
My 3rd cuisinart broke yet again so I decided to go with this brand based on the reviews. I loved everything about this coffee maker. My only complaint is the carafe does not keep the coffee hot for long, at least not for me. I like my coffee HOT. After about 2 hrs it's warm. It's a great size--not big and bulky like most. It's so easy to use, makes good coffee and looks very nice. I reluctantly return it. I just can't do the thermal carafes

Stopped working after 18 months!
I really like this coffee maker, however it stopped working last evening and I only had it for 18 months.
It will be interesting what the limited two year warranty will bring because i sure would like it to be replaced.
