|Kevin Sinnott's Review of our BV-1800||George & Jenny Howell Brew Iced Coffee|
George Howell has been a friend to Bonavita from its inception. Terroir Coffee has been using a bank of Bonavita coffee makers in their roasting operation for a year now. Here is the introduction that George wrote about our Bonavita coffee makers:
"Coffee quality has been improving by leaps and bounds in the past decade. A new generation of coffee roasters from coast to coast is coming of age; they are incentivizing farmers and putting them front and center, not hiding them in homogenized blends. I am thrilled to be one of them! We are creating new standards for freshness all the way from the farm to the home. And we are demanding better brewing to prove how great our coffees are- in cafes and in homes. The Bonavita answers that call for home brewing.
At last! A simple, reasonably priced, smartly compact drip coffee brewer which belies its power and accuracy. The water temperature is hot enough to extract all the nuances found in fine coffees. The showerhead provides enough turbulence and coverage so the coffee grounds are saturated. The Bonavita comes with glass carafe or a stainless, very conveniently designed thermos. Time for simplicity with pinpoint sureness. Enjoy!"

Bonavita becomes a sponsor of the 41st annual Kona Coffee Festival, November, 2011. This was hard work. Attending the Kona Coffee Festival on the Big Island after an all day flight. Visiting Kona coffee farms and drinking too much freshly roasted Kona coffee. Listening to the farmers talk about their daily lives and “first careers”. Walking a row of galleries, each with a different Kona coffee farm serving their bounty at the Kona Coffee Art Stroll. Hard work indeed.
If you get a chance to attend the Kona Coffee Festival, it’s worth the long flight.
