Today I will review an excellent drip coffee maker that is very simple to use and brews excellent coffee. The Bonavita BV1900TS is a perfect drip coffee machine for those that can’t be bothered with features and accessories. If you fit into that description than this gorgeous machine can be yours at an affordable price.
You may think that is not possible to have premium drip coffee at the comfort of your home, but with the Bonavita BV1900TS this will all change, as it delivers excellent coffee with just the press of a button, you will be very impressed by the flavor and richness of the coffee from this brewer.
On top of that, it is extremely easy to clean up and it is the simplest package you can find on the market.
Design-wise the Bonavita BV1900TS is very simple and utilitarian too, that doesn’t mean a bad thing though, because I am a fan of its minimalist and contemporary design, despite the device being a little dated by now. It doesn’t feature any LCD panels, LED lights, or a range of buttons and switches, it is designed to fulfill the essentials and it does that marvelously. Just like the Bunn Velocity brew, the Bonavita BV1900TS features just a power switch when it comes to buttons and controls.
The industrial design is mostly due to basic oval shape that one part consists of the water heater and the tank, and the other part the filter and the thermal carafe. It is mainly built with stainless steel except for the plastic parts. As I said earlier the device doesn’t cover a lot of surfaces as it measures just 11.5x10x6.75-inches, and overall with the nice combination of stainless steel and black plastic it will fit right in most kitchen designs.
The Bonavita BV1900TS is a no-frills machine and features a straightforward operation. Brewing coffee with the pot is fool-proof, just fill the water tank with water, that has 8 cups capacity, then add your coffee grounds to the brew basket and put it on top of your thermal carafe, and then just power the machine, and you just have to sit back and let it do its magic. The process happens in a pretty quick fashion as well, outputting delicious coffee as a result.
Due to its simple design and features, the Bonavita BV1900TS requires less maintenance and cleaning as a result. Besides the carafe and water tank, you just have to hand wash the filter basket and you are good to go.
The machine has some features though, like the ability to pre-infuse the coffee grounds with water before starting the brewing cycle automatically. To do this you just have to hold down the power button for five seconds. This helps to round out the over-acidity and other flavors that ruin the flavor of the brew that is the result of freshly roasted beans.
Speaking about performance the Bonavita BV1900TS is able to brew 8 cups of rich and flavorful coffee in about 7 minutes with a temperature of 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Throughout my testing, I came to the conclusion that the flavor of the coffee was amazingly consistent with each brew. It is also worth stating that the thermal carafe can keep the coffee at 150 degrees Fahrenheit for about 4 hours.
It is not programmable like other machines and it doesn’t have any flash, but if you just want to get your daily dose of java, the Bonavita BV1900TS is a remarkable drip coffee maker.
