Equipment Info

If you do manual pour over, you know that the right kettle makes a huge difference in the ease of brewing and the outcome in the cup. The BonaVita electric 1.0 liter variable gooseneck is the pour over kettle you’ve been waiting for. It won’t heat your water to boiling in a New York minute, but it will bring it to precisely the temperature you set and keep it there for up to an hour. The design of the BonaVita makes it obvious that the company sat down with coffee pros and took all of their concerns into account when they designed the variable gooseneck kettle, because it’s a veritable wish list of most-wanted features in an electric pour over kettle.

 

CONTROL AND COMFORT IN ONE EASY PACKAGE

The gooseneck spout and stay-cool handle give you the precision and control you need to do a steady, slow pour for hand-dripped coffee. The kettle is carefully balanced for comfortable handling. There’s no plug on the kettle to get in the way as you pour, eliminating one of the major burn hazards of most electric kettles. The base plugs in. The kettle doesn’t.

 

PROGRAMMABLE OR PRESET TEMP BUTTONS

The BonaVita electric variable temperature kettle has six preset buttons that you can easily re-program to your own preferred settings for different coffees. Just fill the kettle with water, push the button and let it do its stuff. The kettle won’t forget your presets, either. It has a solid state memory so it retains your temperature settings even if you unplug it.

 

ACCURATE DIGITAL DISPLAY

The BonaVita features an easy to read, accurate digital display on the base. Extensive consumer testing confirms that it retains your water’s temperature to within 0.5 degrees for up to an hour after reaching it, making it the ideal pouring kettle for a brew bar or office setting.

  • Gooseneck spout for controlled pouring
  • Heating base and separate kettle for ease of use

<br>this item works and is priced nice too. <br> I like mine - here is how I use it. These are not large enough (1 liter max) to have much room to leave water in waiting for the next round - one 500mL pour over session and it is almost empty - not a problem for me though since I find less water is better with pour over since I can control the lighter weight for the three minute pour more easily. <br> A dial thermometer will fit in one of the 3 vent holes at the top - remember the first water pour will loose 8 degrees very quickly when it hits room temp coffee grounds so time the pour accordingly.

Excellent kettle, and for about the price of a Hario Bruno, it's almost a no brainer. The spout allows for an easy pour into your dripper, and is basically a requirement for something like a Hario V60 or Chemex style brewer. The two drawbacks for this kettle is that it takes about five minutes to boil water from the cold tap temp, and only holds a liter of water. So I find that I like use about 1/3 of a liter to warm my brewer and rinse the filter, and then refill and allow to come to a boil again in about a minute to start brewing. Overall highly recommended.

I've been waiting for the Hario Buono electric version to come out but since it has yet to become available, I went with this guy. I'm glad I did. This guy not only looks nice, it heats up quickly (1L room temp water to boil in little over 5 mins), all metal construction where water is in contact, and has great pour control. Only thing I wish differently is to have the base be made a little sturdier as I found it looking and feeling a little cheap. Overall, happy with my purchase.

There's certainly nothing to dislike about the controlled pour this kettle gives you. It's also much quieter than the Aroma kettle I've been using (pleasant surprise), and the on/off mechanism feels sturdier. So far the only niggle I can think of that hasn't been mentioned in other reviews is that I occasionally get a bit of condensation on top of the base that seems to be coming from an overflow path toward the back of the kettle (below the power switch).

Will likely post a more in-depth review later. Short version: only electric gooseneck currently on market (convenient). Not the greatest pour among goosenecks, but good enough for most amateur use (professionals would likely prefer different models).

    Living up to the hype for me

    There's certainly nothing to dislike about the controlled pour this kettle gives you. It's also much quieter than the Aroma kettle I've been using (pleasant surprise), and the on/off mechanism feels sturdier. So far the only niggle I can think of that hasn't been mentioned in other reviews is that I occasionally get a bit of condensation on top of the base that seems to be coming from an overflow path toward the back of the kettle (below the power switch).

    Brand Info

    BonaVita is appropriately named, at least as far as real coffee lovers are concerned, since good coffee and the good life are inextricably intertwined. BonaVita made its name with an automatic drip coffeemaker that rivals the Technivorm for quality, but clocks in at a substantially lower price. The mission of the folks at BonaVita is simple: to extract the full flavor of coffee without over-extracting it. To that end, they offer the BonaVita Coffee Maker, designed and engineered in Europe for discerning coffee drinkers, and approved as certified brewing equipment by the Specialty Coffee Association of America.

     

    BonaVita also offers a selection of kettles, both electric and manual, including variable-temperature electric kettles that are accurate within 1 degree, with conventional or gooseneck spouts, and a travel kettle that’s easy to pack. With a UL listing for commercial use, the BonaVita kettles show the sleek sensibility of European design, offering superior control and ease of use for brewing tea or manual pourover coffee.
