Coffee inspires creativity—this is merely an overflow of that. A bit of my coffee journey in the form of doodles and sketches.

I’ve been using Bonavita as my primary kettle for about 4 months now, and I love it. Not only does the electric kettle have a quick boil time (5 minutes) but it has a great gooseneck spout that gives great control over pouring speed and location.

At only $59.99 for the electric, and $39.99 for stovetop, Bonavita has balanced the line of quality coffee brewing equipment and affordability for home users.

I’ve had the chance to talk with Todd Larrabee from Bonavita a few times, and I’m always impressed at the passion, excitement, and creativity he envisions for the future of Bonavita and for the coffee industry.

Part of that excitement can be seen in the Bonavita’s recent explosion into the coffee scene with their coffee brewers and kettles.

Last year, Bonavita introduced an affordable gooseneck kettle to the mix – this year they’ve expanded on that idea and showcased Bonavita’s newest innovation: a variable temperature kettle.

From Clive Coffee:

We are happy to report that Bonavita has once again provided an excellent product at a rather unbelievable price. The internal microprocessor keeps the water within .5 degrees of the set temperature and will hold it there for 20 minutes. The gooseneck pour spout offers the control you need for pourover. One of our favorite features is the solid state memory, which means the kettle will recall your presets even when unplugged. For a fast, accurate electric kettle, we feel the Bonavita variable temperature unit offers a great value.

I’m excited about what Bonavita is doing, and look forward to trying out some new, innovative products.

You can grab one of the new kettles from Clive Coffee starting in July.

    I just wanted to share this website with you. They make custom coffee cup sleeves with any design that you would like. You can even submit your art to them to have it printed on the sleeves. Enjoy!

    The kettle is great, the lid (for the 2 liter size) not so much. I had 1 kettle replaced due to a broken lid, the second lid is now broken. $100 too much to pay for a kettle that needs to be replaced every six months.
