DRIP COFFEE BREWING GUIDE

The drip brewer is a classic stand-by of brewing coffee at home. While we have nothing against your mom’s Coffee Mate from 1986, we love the SCA-certified Bonavita brewer for a quick and no-fuss way to make your morning brew.

The simple pour over design, accurate water temperature and pre-infusion technology produces consistent, easy and tasty cups of coffee at home.

This guide is specific to the Bonavita Thermal Carafe Coffee Brewer (BV1500TS). If you’re looking for how to get the most out of any other drip brewer, check out this guide.

This guide will produce about two 10 oz cups of coffee.

RATIO: 1:16 (i.e. 40g coffee, 640g water)
GRIND: Like coarse salt

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • Drip Brewer
  • Filters (#4 V-shaped filters)
  • 40g of Coffee
  • Scale
  • Grinder

STEP 1

PREPARE

Fill the brewer to the 4-cup mark with filtered water (640 grams of water).

Place filter in basket.

STEP 2

WEIGH & GRIND

Weigh out 40 grams of coffee.

Grind coffee similar to the consistency of coarse sea salt.

STEP 3

PUT EVERYTHING IN PLACE

Place ground coffee in filter basket, place basket on top of coffee pot and place assembly in brewer.

STEP 4

BREW

Now comes the hard part: push the brew button.
Pro Tip: Hold the Bonavita button for 5 seconds until it flashes. This will place the brewer in pre-infusion mode, a feature that allows the coffee to bloom or expand creating a tastier cup of coffee.

Once the brew is complete, serve and enjoy!
