Bonavita has constructed a maker that will brew at the optimum temperature of 200 to 205 degrees, releasing water only once it has attained the proper temperature. The spray head completely saturates coffee grounds and produces an ideal extraction. This model comes with a glass carafe that sits on a 'keep warm' soleplate .

This brewer is the same as one manufactured by Melitta, a German company, and licensed in the US to Bonavita. The coffeemaker fills a niche as a high quality and sensibly priced, high end brewer. Our own tests have shown the brew temperature, strength and flavor comparable to more expensive brands, but with less emphasis on making a design statement.
