This is one of 5 brands of coffeemakers certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America for it’s brew temps and ability to brew a superior cup of coffee.
Here’s all of them:
Bunn Phase Brew 8 Cup Coffee Brewer.
Bonavita 8 Cup Exceptional Brew Coffee Maker with glass or thermal carafe.
Brazen Plus Customizable Temperature Control Brew System.
KitchenAid Coffee Maker KCM0802.
If I were to buy a new electric coffeemaker today I’d go with the Brazen Plus simply because of all of it’s highly customizable parameters (now that they’ve worked out some of the issues of the original model). I’m just geeky like that and the increased cost over Bonavita is worth it to me. If the Brazen didn’t exist this would probably be my choice.
I have the Bonavita variable temp gooseneck version and brewing with that and a Hario V60 pourover is my go-to brew setup when I have the time (weekends and holidays when I don’t have to be at work by 7:30). I love that kettle. It’s cool how you can experiment with various temps and the differences in taste that result from changes in temp. After playing around with it my preferred temp setting for Hario pourover is 206. 203 was flat comparatively.
