Bonavita Connoisseur Overview

A simple coffee maker like the OXO On Barista Brain, the Bonavita Connoisseur doesn’t have any fancy functionality.

But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have some special features.

With optional pre-infusion, a well-designed shower head for uniform extraction, and a powerful 1500W heater, this drip coffee maker produces a hot, delicious pot of coffee in about 6 minutes.

The simplicity does have some drawbacks, though.

The single switch controls both the pre-infusion bloom phase and the brew, so you need to monitor the coffee maker at the very beginning. The machine also lacks any auto-brew functionality or 24-hour programmability.

Overall, the Bonavita Connoisseur’s aesthetically pleasing design makes a great cup of coffee.

Pros

  • Powerful 1500W heater brews a truly hot pot
  • Well-designed shower head and flat bottom filter basket result in even extraction
  • Made from aesthetically-pleasing brushed stainless steel

Cons

  • Only 40 oz capacity
  • No Auto-Brew functionality
  • Optional pre-infusion must be controlled by the user
