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.
