QUESTION:


Bonavita BV1800 VS Bonavita BV1900? Which would you recommend? I know that your site shows Bonavita BV1800 thermal carafe. When I start shopping for it, the Bonavita BV1900 came up.

Supposedly there is a difference in the basket shape and wattage... this could be significant, but I am not sure. What are pros and cons? Why 1900 model? Is it an improvement, or just a sale pitch?

I am looking for good solid machine, we currently use a Melitta Mill & Brew, but it is very old, on the way out.

Thank you for your help.

ANSWER:

Vicki, hi

Funny...we still have a Melitta Mill & Brew in our basement somewhere.

Anyway, as you know, we do have the Bonavita BV1800. We use it every morning for our own coffee, and also use it when we are doing coffee reviews. In other words, I have complete trust in it to bring out the best in a coffee.

I don’t have personal experience with the BV1900, but have checked around a little. There seem to be some minor improvements. One thing people might like is that the liner of the thermal carafe that comes with the 1900 is steel and not glass. We haven’t had any problems with our glass version, but I know some people have had problems with it breaking or cracking. I don’t think it’s a product problem. More like a rough handling problem!

Bottom line, I can’t see any reason to change my BV1800 for the BV1900. I don’t think the newer model will actually make you a better cup of coffee.

Up to you...but the Bonvita BV1800 does the job just fine.

Best wishes.

Nick
