As has been the case with so many other people, the glass inside the carafe of my coffee maker exploded. Like a bomb. I'd already read that I needed to be extra careful about temp changes and had been babying it for more than a year. All I did was dry the inside with a paper towel after letting it get to room temp. Glass got all over my hand and my kitchen. Tiny sharp prices of glass too. To say it was hard to clean is an understatement. We are still finding shards in corners of the room.
So I naturally thought could call the company to replace it - especially a company that charges such exorbitant prices for its coffee makers.
Not the case - I have left 5 voicemails @the customer service number, since no one ever answers, and have not heard a word despite the fact that they guarantee a response within a specific amount of time. I have sent multiple emails.
No response at all from Bonavita, even though they know they have produced a carafe that is dangerous even with the most careful handling.
Buyer beware. Other coffee makers are just as good. This company will clearly not stick by their product, even when it is clearly their fault.
I only drink 2 cups in the morning and with my previous drip coffee maker the 2nd cup was never as good as the first. Just finished my 2nd cup through the Bonavita and it was as flavorful and hot as the first.
Things I like about it: Brews quickly. Coffee is hot and stays hot longer. I drink coffee with cream and even after I add the cream the coffee is the perfect temperature and stays hot to the finish. Enhanced flavor - honestly, I haven't had a cup of coffee this good since I was in Italy. I didn't know a good coffee maker could make such a difference. (grew up on Mr. Coffee) NO DRIPS the pour spout is wonderful, no drips. Little bonus you have to remove the coffee ground container to put the cap on the pot so I immediately dump the grounds (no more forgetting the grounds...) I like this feature keeps me tidy.
Highly recommend this coffee maker.
Both have a small footprint and load from the side, requiring little counter space. Build quality is better in the Moccamaster, but the Bonavita is still quite acceptable. Both are simple machines, only one button to operate. The MM is tall and elegant while the Bona has a stocky elegance about it. Not so elegant is the Bona's carafe. It's surprisingly chubby. In its defense, it doesn't seem to be heavier than the MM, but 20% shorter and 20% "fatter." Simplicity would be the Bona carafe's strong suit. The carafe has a lid which requires a half-turn to seal. With the MM the lid is screw-on, requiring two hands to serve, one to hold the carafe, the other to loosen the lid. With the Bona's carafe, you simply press the lid handle and have a no-drip pour, all done with one hand. Another nicety with the Bona is filling the water. With the MM you must remove the water basin lid and fill, then replace the lid. The Bona's lid is hinged and flips to the side for filling. Another feature with the Bona is the electrical cord can the wound beneath the machine allowing only the amount of cord needed to reach the outlet. With the Bona, you have to deal with a couple of feet of unneeded cord cluttering the counter. Coffee connoisseurs refer to the shower head. Spraying the coffee makes sense. I haven't measured the sizes between the two, but I think the Bona's head is a bit larger.
This brings me to how the coffee is brewed. The Bona has a feature I really like, although at first it seemed a bit odd. The filter basket and carafe are united during the brewing process. You rest the basket on the carafe, fill with grounds and then place this assembly beneath the shower head. When finished, the basket and carafe are removed from the maker, the basket removed, and the twist-top is installed. Two things I've learned to love about this arrangement. First, the MM basket might have a few drips splatter on the counter after the carafe is removed, where with the Bona the basket is removed away from the machine. I also like that the Bona doesn't have the adjustable valve in the basket as the MM. More than once, sleepy fingers haven't had the MM filter basket valve clicked in the proper position resulting in a coffee-covered-counter. Also, we've had to replace the MM basket a year ago because the adjustable valve had worn out. The Bona has a louder rattle-and-hum during the brewing process which I find somehow comforting in the morning. The Bona's finale is a whoosh of steam announcing brewing is complete.
As for form, the Moccamaster is nice to look at, purposeful yet elegant. For function, I'd have to give the edge to the Bonavita, moving one step beyond the MM's simplicity. As for $100 compared to $300, I'm thinking this boils down (no pun intended) to build quality. Our MM is over ten years old and going strong. Time will tell on the Bonavita.

True, these coffee makers are not for everyone. Some people like their coffee burnt, having simmered for an hour on a heating plate, in a glass carafe. I don't say this facetiously or in jest. My husband thought he liked his coffee as I just described, or at least remarked that it was good enough for him, until he discovered how coffee is meant to taste. We also invested in a proper burr grinder, the Baratza Virtuoso which is actually a bit more expensive than the Bonavita, but burr ground coffee DOES make a big difference, as does coffee bean freshness.
The Bonavita is well made; no quality problems and simple to use. There are no bells and whistles like clocks and timers. This machine is about serious coffee making, not about telling the time or waking you up. There are clocks on the market that specialize in those things. The Bonavita has a simple on/off switch. If you are in a hurry or clumsy, you could spill the coffee as you pour it from the carafe spout. Old habits do get trained out. The carafe is thermal, deemed the best type to prevent overheating and scorching freshly ground coffee beans. It is only 8 cups large but it makes fresh coffee faster than our previous Braun cone filter coffee maker. With more than 6 people, (we like larger cups to drink), the wait is minimal and rewarding. Who needs more than 8 cups? For two people, (our regular household) it is perfect.
We were ready to graduate to ALWAYS drinking really good coffee and are not looking back. If you love good tasting coffee, the Bonavita won't disappoint. If you do not have a burr grinder, invest in one as an accompaniment to your new Bonavita.
When brewing coffee the coffee will stay hot 2-3 times as long if you warm the carafe with hot water for 30 seconds-1 min after filling the unit with cold water before brewing.
I also suggest disposable unbleached filters with this unit, cleanup is as simple as dumping it in the trash and running it under some water.
This thing is extremely fragile. I am not sure if mine was an anomaly, but after using it for about a month, when I went to wash it in warm water, the glass inside the carafe just exploded. Bonavita were very quick to send me a replacement, so I assume this is a common issue. Their customer service was fantastic, shipping me a replacement within the week, but I am now very worried about washing the new carafe. They give you a foam brush to clean it with so that you don't score the glass with a brush, but I am still very concerned about it shattering due to some change in temperature.
The filter housing actually sits onto of the carafe during brewing, then you remove it and install the carafe pouring lid after brewing is complete. This ensures that the coffee is sealed and stays hot without the need for a warming element. Pouring speed is fine and carafe is easy to rinse when the work day is done.
I recommend filling the water reservoir using a container other than the coffee carafe. (i.e. water jug or similar)
The coffee is brewed very quickly which eliminates the need for a "sneak a cup" feature.
I am undecided on the stainless steel carafe. It does not keep the coffee warm for very long. But I understand that a coffee warmer feature would change the flavour of the coffee, probably more than the flavour is changed when I microwave the second cup for 30 seconds (unless I am using an insulated mug which keeps the coffee hot for a lot longer time). Also, it is very hard to get the last teaspoon of water out of the carafe after it gets rinsed (this seems like a design flaw).
