Out with the old, in with the brew! The Bonavita Metropolitan improves on Bonavita's classic coffee maker design—at a more affordable price. Built to the same exacting specs of Bonavita's SCAA-rated brewer—198? to 204? brew temperature, a full-size grounds basket, and brew time under 8 minutes—the Metropolitan adds rails for the brew basket and a one-piece case for a more streamlined user experience. Available in glass carafe versions only, the Metropolitan also sports a calibrated hot plate with a 40-minute timer and an optional pre-infusion mode before brewing.

  • Just Right Heat - Our (admittedly basic) temperature tests put the Metropolitan right at an ideal 199? at the spray arm.
  • On-rails Basket - The flat bottom brew basket now slides on rails built into the brewer.
  • Glass Carafe - The Metropolitan includes a glass carafe for those sensitive to stainless steel flavors.
  • (Not Too) Hot Plate - A calibrated hot plate keeps coffee at a not-too-hot 185? for 40 minutes before shutting off.
  • Optional Pre-infusion - Just like most Bonavita brewers, press-and-hold the toggle to activate a 15 second bloom at the start of your brew cycle.
  • Spray Arm - The spray arm offers wide coverage over the brew basket, and is easy to level out for even flow.
  • Pros
    • Clean Case - While the all-plastic case was undoubtedly a choice to reduce price, the Metropolitan actually looks a lot sleeker next to the mixed-medium case of the regular Bonavita.
    • Basket Rails! - We've only been asking forever. Now the basket stays with the brewer.
    • Glass Carafe - If you're sensitive to stainless steel flavors from regular carafes, the glass carafe is a nice choice (its easier to clean too!).
  • Cons
    • No Frills - At its heart, the Metropolitan is still a very basic design. No timer or temp programming, no auto drip stop and no built-in water filters or descale warning lights.
  • Tips and Tricks
    Lazy pour over lovers rejoice! The Metropolitan's 9.5-inch clearance (from hot plate to spray arm) is tall enough to accommodate a 10-Cup Chemex.
