I’m usually pretty busy at different times of the day so my days are never the same. The coffee from this machine is usually ready in about 4 to 5 minutes for four cups. I’m usually brewing my coffee in the morning though because it keeps me going through the day. If you clean the machine and get it setup it makes things a little quicker during your morning rush.

I still keep a drip coffee maker around because there are days when I like to slow down and feel like I’m not in a rush to go anywhere. My favorite drip coffee maker happens to be the Bonavita 1800.

I remember when I first got it how impressed I was with it. The first thing I noticed was the Specialty Coffee Associate of America’s Certified Brewer Equipment award. The very first thing I noticed was the coffee that comes out of this machine is extremely HOT. I measured approximately 184* F freshly brewed. During the brew process you can be anywhere from 195* to 205*.

The first thing to keep in mind about this particular brewer is they have an initial 15 minute setup, so if you unplug it at anytime you need to go through this 15 minute setup again. So once you fill up your reservoir you will need to give the machine 15 minutes while it preheats and gets setup. If you are the type of person that does not like to leave things plugged in when you’re not home then may need to look at another brewer.
