The Bonavita 1900TS Coffee Brewer Overview

Bonavita 1900TS Coffee Brewer Review

At a glance, the Bonavita 1900TS is a high quality, simple and straightforward coffee maker.

Taking away all the special functions (and buttons) that most modern coffee makers come with, all you have is a simple machine that makes good coffee.

Different from the previous Bonavita BV1800, this new model also comes with a rarely known feature — pre-infusion mode.

The pre-infusion mode is an optional feature that wets freshly roasted ground coffee so it can de-gas before the brewing process begin.

As a replacement of the discontinued Bonavita BV1800 model, the company also replaced the easy-to-break glass carafe with a fully stainless steel thermal carafe to keep your coffee warm.

Read more below to find out why we like the Bonavita 1900TS and what can be better.

The Good Part About Bonavita 1900TS Coffee Brewer

What We Like About The Coffee Maker:

  • The coffee machine design is simple and sleek. The Bonavita 1900TS comes with only on/off button and a power cord. The water reservoir is on the left while the hot water shower head above the right of the coffee maker with the coffee filter placed between the shower head and the thermal carafe. There is no other fancy configurations and features. All you get is a straightforward coffee maker with the optional pre-infusion mode that you can activate via the On/Off button.

  • The hot water shower head is big. There is some coffee maker that comes with small shower head; Bonavita 1900TS is not one of them. Larger shower head means that you get all the coffee goodness extracted evenly.

  • The coffee brewer is fast and it also makes good coffee. You can get a full carafe of hot coffee in under 6 minutes and it tastes really good!

  • Full Stainless Steel Thermal Carafe is good at keeping coffee hot. While some brand still offers a glass carafe, most of the major makers have switched to the stainless steel version. It is not hard to realize that the stainless steel carafe is much effective in keeping coffee warm comparing to the glass carafes. Apart from that, it is also much more durable and dishwasher friendly.

  • The water reservoir is fairly easy to fill up. Do take note the lid opens on the top and you do need sufficient space if you place it below cupboard.

The Bad Part About Bonita 1900TS Coffee Brewer

What Could Be Better: Bonavita 1900TS

  • The pre-infusion setting can be confusing to figure out. If you did not read the manual, you probably do not know how to actually activate or deactivate the pre-infusion feature. After some clarification from Bonavita, the feature appears to be hidden in the button. Here’s how you activate or deactivate the Bonavita 1900TS pre-infusion feature:

Hold down the button for about 5 seconds. The light will blink once to deactivate, twice to activate. If the feature is activated, the light will blink throughout the brewing cycle.

  • The pre-infusion feature is not adjustable. The pre-infusion process is only 30 seconds after the shower head released a small amount of hot water onto the coffee ground. You do not get to set it to anything shorter or longer than 30 seconds.

  • The hot water that exits the shower head are sometimes inconsistent. We are not sure if it is intended. The hot water sometimes only came out from a certain part of the shower head and not simultaneously.

  • Hard to pour the last bit of coffee out from the thermal carafe. Much like the Cuisinart Extreme Brew carafe, the carafe from this coffee maker also need to be turned almost upside down to get the last bit of coffee.

  • The coffee ground basket can be inconvenient sometimes. The basket basically sits on top of the carafe during the brewing process. When the brewing is done, you will need to have a place for the basket before you can enjoy your cup of joe.

  • The power cord is a tad too short. Measuring at about 2 feet, the power cord may not be suitable for certain users if the counter top power socket was not well planned.

Our Verdict on Bonavita BV1900TS Coffee Brewer

The Bonavita BV1900TS Coffee Brewer makes really good coffee.{:class=”deck”}

We really like the simple and straightforward functionality of this coffeemaker.

It is made to do one simple thing, and do it really well — brewing coffee.

If you are looking for a coffee maker that can brew up good coffee fast and keep it warm for hours, this is the coffee machine you are looking for.

Some feedbacks have mentioned about the 8-cup capacity being too little.

We find the Bonavita 1900TS actually measure about 5 ounces per cup while normal coffee maker goes with 4 ounces per cup of coffee.

In other words, although it is labeled as an 8-cup coffeemaker it is actually about a 10-cup-er.
