    My Bonavita 1800ts needs replacing.

    Hi,

    New to forum and was looking for some advice. My Bonavita 1800 has started leaking from the bottom and will not start up brew cycle. I would just get another one since I have been rather happy with it brews, but I was looking for different options though since I have not had much luck with my Bonavitas. This one only lasted about 18 months and it was a replacement after my original died after about 2 years. I do not know if I am expecting too much for what I am paying but I would think the machines would last longer.

    I normally brew one pot a day. I like a strong cup of coffee and almost always look for dark roast beans when shopping around. I do grind using a burr grinder just before brewing. I like a thermal carafe since on the weekends I tend to drink the pot all morning, but this is not an absolute must since I can just buy a separate thermal carafe if needed. I do not have a lot of money and was looking to spend around $150-200, but I could go as high as $300 if there was a machine that was well worth it.

    I really appreciate any help and advice you can give.

    Thank you in advance
    Tim McCumber

    Moccamasters are probably the step up from the Bonavitas.

    I like the Bonavita also though, you do need to decalcify and clean to keep the aforementioned from happening.
    They should be warranteed so you might inquire, especially if you are purchasing from the same store.

    Technivorm Moccamaster is also a nice brewer but at twice the price and has its own quirks. They are the top rated brewer though

    If you want to take it a step further with regards to control Behmor Brazen Plus should be on your radar.

    Moccamaster is well built but it's even more basic than the Bonavita. For some reason, it has become very esteemed in the US. In Europe, where it's from, it's not really seen as anything outstanding.
