Product Description

Bonavita has taken on our favorite role of mad coffee scientist by combining part pour over and part immersion brewer into a new porcelain filter basket. Lock the base and prepare as you would a pour over. Then, let it set as you would a French press but instead of taking the plunge you gently release the lever and it drips through like a dripper. Crazy train! And we love it!

A weak link in the designReview by Jim G
This coffee maker was good while it lasted. It was a convenient size when I wanted to brew just a couple of cups. The only problem in operation was that the "on" and "off" indications were hard to read, but I fixed that by going over the raised letters lightly with a sharpie. I liked that it was solidly made out of porcelain rather than plastic like the other one I had. But unfortunately, that solid build did not extend to the lever used to open and close the release valve at the bottom. After light use (no more than 2-3 times per month) over the course of a year, the lever broke at the point where it attaches to the valve assembly. The design would have been helped by either metal or a thicker plastic, in that the lever needs a fair amount of course given the tightness of the valve seal. In any case, it doesn't appear to be fixable, so I got some use out of this but not nearly enough to justify the expense. I might just get a small French press to replace it. More expensive, but less likely to fail. (Posted on 9/18/2016)
Nice build quality, but less good coffeeReview by Eskil
It is supposed to be the "french press with less cleaning work". It is less cleaning work, and it is a good quality product, but I never managed to get a cup at the quality of a french press. Maybe I don't pre-heat enough - it is lots of porcelain. It probably needs to rest some time totally full of fully boiling water to stay hot, if you spend time with a thermometer, you can probably find a good method. (Posted on 3/12/2016)
No rocket science requiredReview by A. Da Costa
It's not as easy as dumping some pre-ground coffee and boiling water into a Melitta dripper, but if you're reading this, it means you're ready to try something a little more sophisticated :)

Anyways, compared to other fancy pour-over techniques like Chemex, Hario V60, etc... the Bonavita immersion dripper produces a decent and consistent cup every time. No need to use fancy gooseneck kettles to control the pour. Just pay attention to ratios (coffee:water) and time. (Posted on 11/16/2014)
Easy to useReview by Nerosmama
This dripper is easy to use and my one cup of coffee/day tastes just fine. Great that it is dishwasher safe. I worry about chipping or breaking it tho. Guess I have to be extra careful. (Posted on 11/13/2014)
Not perfect, but almost.Review by Thorsun
I love the way it pours when I manually brew my coffee and I like the way the thermostat is accurate and maintains the temp I want. My family thinks it is cute. It would be nice to have a more visible measure of water in it. It does slow down as it approaches the set temperature, taking a bit longer, but that is the price of not overshooting the mark. It seems very well constructed. My wife thought it was priced somewhat high. (Posted on 4/14/2014)
Bonavita Porcelain Immersion DripperReview by hamr1
Received it for Christmas(asked) Very well made, makes a very nice cup of coffee, and I can put it in the dishwasher. My French press has seen no duty since I got this. Simple to use compared to the Hario, so it's easier to multitask. (Posted on 3/27/2014)
Love it!Review by Elizabeth G
Very accurate, very sensitive scale. Easy to operate. Like being able to set a timer, so it does not cut off on you while you are in the middle of measuring. I have the stand with the ring to sit a dripper on. Makes it easy to accurately reproduce the same consistent, quality cup of coffee over and over. I have also found many other uses in the kitchen when I need small amount of anything from cheese to gelatin - especially when using metric amounts.

I was upgrading another digital scale; this one is much more accurate and weights are in small increments. Very happy with this purchase. (Posted on 9/11/2013)
Best steep-and-release brewing device on the marketReview by Kayakman
I have been using the Clever Dripper for some time and have ordered coffee using this method long before I used it at home.

While I always loved the end result the Clever, I was so excited to see that Bonavita was offering a porcelain steep-and-release brewing device. The reason why is because the Clever is made of plastic and has major heat retention issues.

In my personal testing the Clever dropper on average 15f in temp over the 4 minute brewing process. Now that I have the porcelain Bonavita i also tested it and it drops only 6f-8f in the brewing process. This means that the Bonavita stays within the ideal brewing temp of 205f-95f for all 4 minutes.

Now that I have the Bonavita I will never go back to the Clever.

In coffeehouses, this would make for a great alternative to either pourover or French Press as it is much easier to clean up and creates a much better end cup of coffee.

Thanks Bonavita for making this product for us!!! (Posted on 7/3/2013)
great productReview by Mark S
It's like the Clever Coffee Dripper, but with better design and heat retention. I do wish it was easier to disassemble the bottom mechanism for cleaning, but all in all this is is still the best system I've found for hybrid immersion/filter brewing on the market. (Posted on 6/20/2013)
Recommended!Review by Kathy
I love this brewer! I like the immersion method and have been using a competitor's (plastic) product for over a year, so when I read about the porcelain Bonavita immersion brewer I was happy to try it out. It works as advertised; I am very satisfied with the coffee I can brew with this dripper. Nothing touches the coffee except porcelain, the paper filter and the stopper at the bottom of the cone. The dripper is heavy so you want to be sure to preheat it before use so your coffee will stay hot.

Only time will tell if the underside mechanism will be easy to keep clean, but so far so good. This filter cone seems a bit expensive, but there is nothing else like it out there so give it a try! (Posted on 4/15/2013)
