Bunn Velocity vs. Bonavita BV1800TH, What’s The Difference?

Bonavita BV1800 8-Cup Coffee Maker

Another competitor to the BUNN Velocity is the Bonavita BV1800TH, which we’ve already reviewed on our site. Let’s see how they compare to each other…


  • The Bunn Velocity has a larger capacity, up to 10 cups (50 ounces).
  • The Bonavita has an 8 cup capacity (40 ounces).


  • The optimal temperature for the Bunn Velocity is 200 F.
  • The optimal temperature for the Bonavita is 205 F.

Other than these differences, both machines use the same sprayhead shower method in saturating coffee ground then brewing. However, since the Bonavita has a higher optimal temperature, it will certainly make hotter coffee.
