Bonavita Connoisseur 8-Cup One-Touch Coffee Maker – 2024 Review

The Connoisseur offers curated features that mimic the artisan pour-over brewing method. Originally developed to determine how to best define coffee quality, the Golden cup standard established a relationship between objective measurements and popular preferences for ideal coffee flavor intensity and brew strength.

The Bonavita Connoisseur Coffee 8-Cup Maker brews a fresher, hotter, tastier cup at the touch of a button. Refined to the essentials, this brewer is designed to make consistently delicious coffee. Though its construction is sleek and uncomplicated, this latest version of Bonavita’s BV 1900 line includes some sensible conveniences. 

It now features an updated stainless steel lined thermal carafe that keeps coffee hot and ready with good taste, while the brewing basket hangs under the larger shower head instead of resting on the carafe.

The Bonavita Connoisseur 8 Cup Coffeemaker with Stainless Steel Carafe is BPA-free. The carafe lid, filter basket, and showerhead are dishwasher safe, while the carafe must be hand washed. Manufacturer’s 1-year warranty.
