The Bonavita Exceptional Brew 8-Cup Coffee Maker is a German-engineered coffee maker with a thermal carafe that brews coffee to ideal coffee standards of water temperature, contact time, and coffee grounds saturation. A 1400W thermal block heater achieves proper water temperature quickly, and the stainless steel thermal carafe keeps your brew hotter, longer. Get a perfect cup of coffee, every time.
The Exceptional Brew coffee maker is one of few coffee makers that have been certified for quality and performance by the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA), meaning that the Exceptional Brew is equipment capable of brewing coffee to the exacting standards set by the SCAA.
The German-engineered brewing system features a 1400-watt heater raises water to an ideal brewing temperature (205 degrees F / 96 degrees C) quickly and efficiently. This coffee maker is engineered for precise water and coffee grounds contact time along with a shower head designed for complete coffee grounds saturation and optimal extraction.
Exceptional Brew offers exceptional performance, brewing 8 cups (5 oz. cups) in just 5-6 minutes. The stainless steel thermal carafe keeps your coffee warm for longer versus a conventional glass carafe. The easy-to-fill water tank has a wide opening and clear markings for exact water filling, and the unique boiler heater releases water only when it achieves an ideal coffee brewing temperature of 200-205 degrees F.
The included stainless steel thermal carafe is glass-lined, and delivers better heat control over conventional double-walled stainless carafes. The trigger lid is designed for easy, one-handed pouring with the thermal carafe lid on--you just use your thumb to pour.
The Bonavita BV1800TH Exceptional Brew 8-Cup Coffee Maker is fully UL Certified for safety compliance, and features a 2-year manufacturer's warranty.
"Coffee quality has been improving by leaps and bounds in the past decade. A new generation of coffee roasters from coast to coast is coming of age; they are incentivizing farmers and putting them front and center, not hiding them in homogenized blends. I am thrilled to be one of them! We are creating new standards for freshness all the way from the farm to the home. And we are demanding better brewing to prove how great our coffees are--in cafes and in homes. The Bonavita answers that call for home brewing.
At last! A simple, reasonably priced, smartly compact drip coffee brewer which belies its power and accuracy. The water temperature is hot enough to extract all the nuances found in fine coffees. The showerhead provides enough turbulence and coverage so the coffee grounds are saturated. The Bonavita comes with glass carafe or a stainless, very conveniently designed thermos. Time for simplicity with pinpoint sureness. Enjoy!"
