About Coffee Makers with Thermal Carafe

Coffee is an acquired taste, and the more coffee you drink, the more refined your tastes become. That’s why we invest in coffee machines because we get to control the brewing process. And, of course, it’s cheaper than at the local coffee shop.

Thermal carafes can make the difference between an enjoyable cup of coffee and a miserable experience you never want to revisit.

So why are thermal carafes popular?

A thermal carafe is a device that’s designed to keep your coffee hot. It’s basically an insulated pot, usually made out of double-walled stainless steel. Drinking cold coffee or reheating coffee is never the same as when it’s hot and fresh.

There are also coffee makers with glass carafes (usually cheaper than the stainless steel ones) that come with a warming plate. It’s not a bad option if you’re on a budget, but they don’t keep your coffee as hot.

Bonavita BV1900TS 8-cup Review

Bonavita 8-cup one-touch coffee maker featuring thermal carafe, BV1900TS review, we scoured the internet and found that the price tag is well worth it. The coffee maker includes a pre-infusion mode, which mimics the pour over technique popular in artisan coffee making. The Bonavita is also a Specialty Coffee of America Certified Home Brewer. So we know it’s been put to the test by coffee experts — and has passed with flying colors. A 1500-watt heater ensures you get your caffeine fix quickly and, at the same time, get the most flavor out of your coffee.

Features

It’s coffee o’clock — let’s look at our Bonavita BV1900TS 8-cup carafe coffee brewer stainless steel review!

Design

There are three different versions of the BV1900TS coffee maker: Black plastic base with stainless steel carafe Stainless steel base and carafe Black/chrome-colored plastic with glass carafe The plastic may be off-putting to some people, and if we were to buy one, it would be option 2 — fully stainless steel. It looks very stylish and would look great on any countertop.

Durability

Judging by the Bonavita BV1900TS 8-cup carafe coffee brewer reviews, there may be some design flaws with the water container, causing it to develop micro-cracks over time. Whether this has been addressed is unclear, but there is a two-year limited warranty, and Bonavita has a decent customer service track record. Also, we found some complaints regarding the brew cycle, specifically that it sometimes stops for no reason, requiring you to press the button again to continue the cycle.

Brewing

Here, the Bonavita shines because it includes an optional pre-infusion mode. If you’ve seen how pour over coffee is made, you first wet (aka bloom) the grounds before pouring in the rest of the water. That’s how pre-infusion works and the resulting coffee tastes way better. One more important thing to note in this Bonavita BV1900TS 8-cup review is that paper filters are required. The downside is that paper filters absorb some of the essential oils. However, by all accounts, the coffee tastes great.

Capacity

This coffee maker holds 44 fl oz. (1.3 liters). A standard cup of coffee is 5 oz, and since some of the water is absorbed by the grounds, we get a maximum of 8 cups of coffee from this unit. To review Bonavita 8-cup coffee brewer (BV1900TS) in full, we should also mention that Bonavita recommends adding two level tablespoons of ground coffee for every cup.

Ease of use

One button to pre-infuse and one button to brew. To activate the pre-infuse mode, hold the power button for 5 seconds until the light starts blinking, then release it and press it a second time to start the brew cycle. All you have to do is keep the water container topped up with clean filtered water and replace the filter after each use. That’s it. After the brew cycle finishes, attach the included lid and you’ll have hot coffee whenever you need to get your fix.

Cleaning

For our honest Bonavita 8-cup coffee maker BV1900TS review, please note that there are no replacement parts for this coffee maker. It’s important to keep it clean, use only filtered water and follow the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions (Pages 9-10). If you notice significant scaling or the machine turns off abruptly or makes strange noises, it’s time to clean it with the manufacturer-recommended Full Circle cleaning powder. For daily cleaning, use soapy water. Do not use abrasive cleaners. It’s possible that some people who review Bonavita BV1900TS neglect properly cleaning it, leading to eventual damage.

How to Use the Bonavita 8-cup Coffee Maker BV1900TS

Before you enjoy your first cup of aromatic coffee, make sure to run the brew cycle twice with clean, cold water. Let the coffee maker cool down and then you can go ahead and brew away. Add as much water as you need. Keep in mind that 5 oz = 1 cup, so if you want a full cup/mug, you’d need twice that, so 10 oz. For each cup of coffee, add two level tablespoons. Adjust the amount of water/coffee to your liking.
