The Tecnivorms are proven, well-engineered coffee makers - my only complaint is the $325 price tag. They have been doing the same thing for 50 years so they obviously know what they are doing. Now, if price matters - that's when you get in the realms of Bonavita, OXO, Breville, etc. Out of those companies, Bonavita is the only company that really pushed the quality message. It's for sure a bit more high-end mass-market machine so you will see more failures, etc. I've been rocking the larger thermal machine for 6-7 years... no complaints. In fact, it's my standard machine for brewing drip coffee when creating and/or QC of new coffees I'm releasing.

Thanks for the input and information. I just finished the first cup from the first pot made with the Bonavita Connoisseur and am very satisfied. Should only get better with some adjustments and better quality beans.
