Bonavita Immersion Coffee Dripper
Bonavita’s immersion coffee dripper shares a similar brewing concept with the long-popular Clever coffee dripper: Rather than continually draining as you pour water over the grounds, the coffee + water slurry remains intact for the entire length of extraction, and you choose when to release it.
The differences here are…
- The Bonavita dripper is made from porcelain instead of plastic, which is great if you’re trying to become a better steward of the planet by limiting your plastic consumption. It also won’t take on flavors or aromas over time the way the Clever often does.
- Whereas the Clever dripper is typically set on a flat surface while brewing and opens itself up when placed atop a mug, the Bonavita sports a manual open/close switch. If either of these brewers were to develop even a slight leak, I’d prefer the one that does it over a cup than the one sitting on my countertop.
Aside from that, the brewing process and resulting coffee are much the same:
This is a real nifty little brewing gizmo, there’s not much else to say. Get one for $31 on Amazon.
