Even we are not above brewing electrically! Not every brewer out there will make our short list when it comes to quality and precision. The Bonavita 8 Cup Brewer hits a few marks very well. With a 1500 watt heater it offers great temperature stability, we get a steady brew temp of 205 degrees. This brewer’s specially designed showerhead allows for consistent water delivery, gently saturating the brew bed and allowing for optimal extraction.
It’s easy to operate and is offered in a 5 cup version as well. The Bonavita 8 Cup Brewer* is one of the few home brewers to be certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) as a Gold Cup Standard Brewer. It’s also one of our top picks for an electric brewing option that will offer some convenience to a busy morning routine, without sacrificing quality in the cup.
*We’ve noticed both the 5 & 8 cup measurement is relative to European sizing, just around 5 oz per cup.
