The Bonavita Connoisseur 8 cup coffee maker is an award-winning coffee maker that is designed to mimic the artisan pour-over brewing method. It features a powerful 1500-watt heater that maintains a professional recommended brewing temperature of 198°-205°f (91°-96°c) for optimal flavor extraction.
The showerhead design and hanging flat-bottom filter basket work together to ensure uniform flavor extraction. In addition, the optional pre-infusion mode allows freshly roasted ground coffee to bloom before brewing, enhancing the nuances of the coffee's flavor. The carafe lid, filter basket, and showerhead are all dishwasher safe and all plastic used is BPA-free.
