Any Cons to the Bonavita Coffee Maker?
We honestly couldn’t find any! If you’re someone who is looking for features like: brew pause, programmable settings and such, the lack of these features is considered a con, and we’d advice you have a look at these coffee makers with built-in burr grinders that have all those advanced features. Otherwise, this machine does EXACTLY what it says it does, and it does it very well.

How It’s Different from the Bonavita BV1800:
Although the Bodum seems to have better elements, the Bonavita has received higher customer reviews constantly. Customers have reported that although it makes great coffee, the construction of the Bodum Bistro b. Pour-over coffee maker isn’t all that well. So we truly believe that the stainless steel construction of the Bonavita will offer more value than the Bodum.
