Bonavita BV1500TD 5-Cup Carafe Coffee Brewer via Amazon
Bonavita BV1500TD is the latest compact addition to the digital coffee brewer line of Bonavita, which is a 5 cup brewer inspired by the successful 8 cup brewers of the company that brings pretty much the same benefits in a smaller package with a smaller footprint and you will still have the convenience of a digital programmable brewer, just in smaller 5-cup batches. So what we have here is great coffee brewing by the power and preciseness of a 1100 watt heater for keeping it at the ideal temperature of 195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit as one of the most important steps of brewing coffee is reaching and maintaining the optimal water temperature, solid stainless steel lined thermal carafe, programmable digital brewing and a digital display, a single touch manual brewing option, a large showerhead with quite a special design so it will saturate all grounds evenly for proper extraction (evenly distributing water over coffee grounds) and a regular number 4 cone shaped filter basket. With the voluntary pre-infusion mode coffee grounds will be saturated and the coffee flavour will be great.
Bonavita BV1500TD measures 12.30 x 6.20 x 10.60 inches so it is quite a compact brewer and keeping it in a permanent location on your bench or storing it away will not be a problem as it will fit in your cupboard easily. Bonavita makes great quality products and offers them at reasonable prices so you’re often getting quite a bit of value for your money and same argument is valid for this small 4-5 cup digital brewer that will give you great coffee very consistently at the right temperature. This is a stainless steel coffee brewer with some black plastic BPA-free parts. It is very simple to use and you have the single touch brewing, auto start and auto power-off- all programmable through the digital display panel and clean once you’re done with coffee brewing as the showerhead, filter basket and the carafe lid can all be washed in the dishwasher. And to get the best- hot and strong coffee that is full of flavour out of this brewer you will need two important ingredients: Good quality fresh coffee grounds and pure filtered water and will have to be at the optimal temperature, because if the water is too cold or too hot you just won’t achieve the best tasting coffee with the flavour complexity and depth. It runs quietly, gets to 205 degrees very quickly and brewing time is only a couple of minutes and will turn off automatically once coffee is brewed.
