It’s been three years since the Bonavita BV1900TS 8-Cup Coffee $500 at spinn hit the scene. Back then it won our editor’s choice award. I love it for its comparatively low price and hassle-free design. That and the delicious pots of coffee it made.
Now Bonavita has a follow-up brewer it calls the connoisseur. Snobby name aside, the coffee maker has the same reasonable $190 converts to £140, AU$245 price tag as its predecessor.
Bonavita tweaked this new model, too The result, the connoisseur makes coffee every bit as delicious plus easier to use. This machine might not be a work of art like the hand-crafted $299 (£220, AU$380 ) Technivorm Moccamaster.
Neither is it as sophisticated as the $329 (£245, AU$ 420) Behmor Connected or $300 (£220, AU$380 ). On the other hand, the Connoisseur is just as competent yet costs a whole lot less. That’s why it’s an outstanding buy, and worthy of our Editors’ Choice award.
