Coffee is a beloved drink for many. As a matter of fact, a lot of us have become so dependent on the bitter, dark liquid that the morning doesn’t seem to feel “right” without first having a quality, steaming cup in the morning.
If you don’t have a coffee maker yet, now that most of us have to stay at home, the opportunity’s right to get yourself one. And from our team’s data, the Bonavita BV1900TS is among the best on the market at the moment.
It’s not just an affordable coffee maker that will give you artisan pour-over coffee in only a couple of minutes. It is also an excellent investment due to its high durability that will last you several years and more. For all of these reasons, TheKingLive has gotten ourselves a unit and recorded all of our observations— both good and bad— of the machine. Everything’s condensed into this short, yet detailed review article so that you can decide whether it is worth your money or not.
Here is the short version of the article that, if you’re still interested by the end, you can read in full for free.
Both our testers and past customers loved the BV1900TS for its performance. The machine can produce a very smooth-tasted coffee due to its ability to ramp up to 1500-watt heat and maintain this heat throughout the brewing cycle.
Furthermore, Bonavita’s unique “Pre-Infusion Mode” also helps bring out the natural taste of the coffee grounds. What this mode does is it drips a bit of water onto the raw, dried coffee grounds, giving it time to bloom before the brewing process even begins.
The BV1900TS is also certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) for the quality of its brew. Few machines are qualified, so buy with confidence that the coffee cup from this machine will match up with what you’re hoping to get.
It is easy to use, having only one button that does everything from powering the machine on and off, to enacting the Pre-Infusion Mode. It won’t take longer than a couple of minutes to get used to the BV1900TS’ operation. The bulk of the learning process is the indicator lights that will tell you what the machine is currently doing. Other than that, it’s child-play to use.
The coffee machine is also easy to clean, with the majority of the components dishwasher-safe. The stainless steel carafe has to be hand washed, however, so keep that in mind. Despite this small annoyance, stainless steel actually bolsters the machine’s durability and is the reason why, with proper maintenance and care, the BV1900TS will last you for many years before you have to buy a new one.
In terms of capacity, it can produce about eight cups per brewing cycle.
Without the Pre-Infusion Mode on, each cycle takes five minutes to complete. Conversely with Pre-Infusion, it will take six minutes. Quite speedy.
