The Brazen Plus, a SCAA-certified coffee maker, is often compared to the Bonavita brewer, which is also certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America. In this post, we will be looking at the difference between these two and how they compare to each other in features and performance.
For details on the features of each coffee brewer, read these reviews:

The double walled design of the carafe helps to maintain the temperature of your coffee for a longer duration while the steel lining is now shatterproof.
Brewer is the optional pre-infusion function. When switched on the machine will pre-soak your coffee prior to brewing allowing your grounds to de-gas
The showerhead, filter basket, and carafe lid are all dishwasher safe and all plastic is BPA-free.
The flat bottomed filter basket and large showerhead ensure even wetting of your grounds to ensure proper extraction.

The biggest advantage that the Brazen Plus gives you is the ability to adjust the brewing temperature from 190° to 210° F, which is great for someone who is specific about their coffee temperature. This also affects the taste of your coffee, if you’re familiar with how temperature can enhance your coffee beans. The Elevation Calibration is certainly a neat feature that any true coffee geek will make use of.
The LCD display is also quite helpful for programming auto start and any other features.
The Bonavita 1900 doesn’t have any of the advantages the Brazen Plus offers. It doesn’t have adjustable temperature, but it does keep an optimal temperature of 195°-205°F. It doesn’t have an LCD display, it doesn’t have a clock or auto-start.
The Brazen Plus certainly makes a more advanced and better choice than the Bonavita. Although it is slightly more expensive, the extra features you get are definitely worth the price.
