A drip coffee maker with one of the smaller footprint on your countertop if you are looking for one made for brewing smaller batches. The nice thing about this is that there are markings on the water reservoir for the three water levels and their recommended ground coffee bean weights.

This maker is essentially like an automatic Chemex coffee maker with optional bloom functionality. Takes a #4 coffee filter.

Apparently Bonavita claims that this machine was made for SCAA standards but not sure why it isn't certified yet; could be SCAA's minimum capacity requirement — which is 1 ltr vs this can officially brew up to 0.8 ltr.

There are some negative reviews on the carafe and water temperature in Amazon, but I didn't care more about the temperature so just bought one, let's see how the carafe holds up. I like the coffee it brews, very inline with some of the positive reviews out there.

CNET has a pretty bad review on this one and claims this one doesn't hold up equal to its larger cousins 1800 & 1900 (which are both SCAA certified), but I don't think their coffee grind amount was right which might have got them bitter results.

Price $59 is the lowest of all time accredited to CCC; Originally sold for > $100+.

I LOVE mine and it does have some drawbacks. I used to be a skeptic but started getting sick of being too cheap and dealing with ground coffee and a Mr. Coffee drip maker or at best, grocery store whole bean using a blade grinder and my Mr. Coffee. I had my first taste of good coffee in the Bay Area (where coffee snobs come to congregate) and tried to figure out how to get the best coffee result at home for my money - this is one step of the equation.

There are downsides - this is only a 5 cup and when we have company we have to make two pots. On a daily basis, however, you will have to toss the filter in the trash, pull the brew basket off, screw the top on and then pour. But you won't pour 100% of what's in the carafe into your cup - that's because no matter how hard you try and tilt the thing, you'll always leave 1/4-1/3 of a cup in there. Just accept it. It's very poorly designed on the top front. But it makes fantastic coffee and I've tried its competitors rated by the ASCC, all of which are more expensive. Sometimes this is on Amazon Warehouse under $50.

Combine this with a real burr grinder (Capresso Infinity at the minimum or Baratza if you want to blow more cash - I don't) and some single origin whole bean (For my money, since I refuse to buy $16-20/lb coffee, I'm partial to Running Pump Roasting that Grocery Outlet sells - 2 lbs for $8-10 of always good, sometimes very good, coffee) and you have in my opinion the best auto drip coffee you can make at home for your money bar none.

The machine is not perfect in design but it makes a very good brew but you have to be putting good coffee through it to begin with. If you buy preground coffee or use creamer, I don't think coffeemakers of this type are worth the money. Just buy a $10 12 cup from Best Buy...

If you buy this, buy Dezcal from Amazon and descale once a month. It does clog.

In regards to reliability, I haven't had an 1800 or 1900 but I have had mine for 2 years without issue and the coffee temp is not an issue, always producing at 195-200 degrees. Most important, the product it puts out is good. I've had a better experience than some of the reviews you read online.

Interesting, not sure if there is anyone who can compare them; are these apples to apples comparison?

Returned this. When not in use there is not enough room to store the carafe and lid under the coffee maker. This makes it so you have to store the lid somewhere else, adding clutter to the kitchen.

Awesome find op and very nice if you are into brew coffee. I compared it directly with the Technivorm Moccamaster and felt the Bonavita was a much better price/performance.

I have tried both and like the coffee from the bonavita better - it is my daily brewer. The carafe that came with mine was total crap -but I got a glass one and pour it into a thermos to take to work.
