Which One To Buy?
The BV1900 is an improvement over the BV1800. The redesigned brew basket on the BV1900 will provide you with a better, less bitter and less acidic coffee. It’s also easier to clean than the V-shaped, which could have some beans stuck to it. The stainless steel lined carafe is definitely considered a big improvement from the glass lined one on the BV1800. The glass lined carafe had the risk of imploding at times, either due to user error (either shocking the carafe with cold water while still hot), or for apparent reason at time. The stainless steel lined carafe with the BV1900 model doesn’t have this issue. Although, the BV1800 is available with a stainless steel lined carafe instead of the glass lined.
Overall, we do recommend the BV1900 over the BV1800 for its many improvements.
