Coffee remains hot for an hour or longer. Since it only holds 8 cups its a bit difficult for a party over six people. We've had several positive comments on the full flavor & that the temperature remains constant . We do not mind that it is minus all the bells & whistles, just a simple brew button makes life easy.
This coffee maker made a big difference in the taste of my coffee compared to the XXXXXXXXX. The higher temperature of the brewing process and the shower head for distributing the hot water over the grinds is what makes the difference. Overall, I'm pleased but here are a few comments. First, the quantity of coffee it can make is smaller than most coffee makers so be prepared for that. I don't make a lot at a time so that is not a problem for me. Second, the auto-off seems to stay on too long. I have the thermos pot model so there is no reason to keep the power on after it is finished brewing but I have to manually shut it. It is well made but it is hard to see what is driving the price well over $XXX, but given the results in terms of taste, I'm still happy with this purchase.
After reading reviews of the Bonavita, my husband and I decided to purchase this wonderful coffeemaker. Overstock had an exceptional price on it, so we immediately purchased it. We were not disappointed. This is THE coffeemaker for folks who are coffee aficionados. You must read the manual well before using, since there are some instructions that need to be followed. We like the fact that the carafe keeps the coffee fresh and hot without sitting on a heater, turning the coffee bitter and old. Only wished we had made purchase sooner.
Simple, but delicious coffee! Easy to set up, pouring does not splash all over. I use mine with a wall timer for those moments when I want to wake up to a fresh pot. This brewing set up is so simple compared to previous coffee makers, it seems like no work and little wait to great coffee. Clean up is a breeze. The thermal carafe keeps coffee hot for hours, and since it isn't on a heating element, it maintains it's quality.
When the time came that I had to replace my Krups drip coffeemaker with a thermal carafe I researched the internet for something comparable.
Even though the price was steep at $***.**, I decided to order the Bonavita, mainly because I liked the fact that it has 1400 Watt and the water temperature was clearly stated in the product description - we like our coffee hot ! The design of the Bonavita is clean, yet somewhat dated. The water reservoir is easily accessible, but it lacks the carbon water filter the Krups had. During the brew cycle the machine "gurgels" a lot and quite loud, which I find inappropriate at that price. Also, I would have expected an "end of brew cycle signal". So it's guesswork as to when it is safe to remove the carafe. The handling of the coffee filter and lid are very cumbersome. To brew a pot of coffee, one has to first remove the lid from the carafe, then set the filter on the carafe, add the coffee grinds, put the carafe on the machine and switch it on. When you think that all the water has passed through the filter, you remove the carafe with the filter, discard the coffee grounds and screw the lid on to the carafe. Then you have to allocate space to store the filter until next time. My old Krups coffeemaker had a swing-out compartment for the filter which fit on the lid of the carafe during the brew cycle. That was definitely much more convenient.
To sum it up: I think the product lacks value and easy handling.
I HAVE PURCHASED THE BONAVITA COFFEE MAKER BASED ON THE VIDEO. IT IS ALL THAT THE VIDEO SAID IT IS. THE COVER NEEDS TO BE UPDATED AND MADE TIGHTER. THE COFFEE WOULD STAY HOT FOR EIGHT HOURS INTEAD OF THREE HOURS,

The thermal container is lined with glass (which, of course, is BPA free). There are some reports of the glass imploding.ec99 on Jan 1, 2014
