Thanks, Eric. I was hoping you would reply to this thread!

I was thinking that the filter cone sitting directly onto the pot would be annoying compared to the Capresso with the "pause" function if you wanted to remove the thermos for some reason? Or delay putting it under the cone (so as to saturate the grinds)?

Looks aren't so important (between these 2 models), more about what's in the cup for me. I'm perfectly happy with my AeroPress in the mornings, but if I'm going to need a drip machine for guests, I'd rather it be one that makes coffee that I would like to drink when company is not around!

Do you have any experience with the TV that you could compare to the Bonavita? I'd just rather not spend the $300+ on the TV (if it isn't necessary), and put the extra dollars in my 'espresso machine fund' (that keeps getting emptied due to vehicle repairs, doh!).

Original poster here...

I actually ended up going with the Technivorm and haven't regretted it for a second.  Honestly, I couldn't tell you the last time I had my french press out as I consistently get great coffee from my Technivorm brewer.

Here's a comparison between the TV and the Bonavita that might interest you (if you haven't seen it yet):

Good luck with your decision!

Thanks for that, DaveKl. What made you decide to front the extra $$ for the TV in the end?

Yes, thanks, I've read the review from Clive Coffee... which would be a bit more helpful I think if I regularly used a drip machine and had preferences pertaining to use, etc. And if I had seen both machines in person, but I've only seen the TV in person (to comment on built quality, etc). The taste test variables (with paper filter, stirring/not stirring) are pretty subjective I think. I wish I could just test both and decide which one I want to buy haha!!

Just to update for any future readers of this thread, I decided on the Bonavita Thermal. Arrived yesterday from Transcend Coffee in Edmonton, and brewed my first pot this morning, and it is delicious! I decided to go with the BV over the TV due to price, and the glass lined thermal carafe. Since I often brew with pour-over methods, I couldn't justify spending 2x on the TV for a brewer that seemingly produces the same quality in the cup. And, the Capresso would have been 3rd on the list, but it just doesn't get the reviews like the BV and TV. And for the same or higher price of a BV, it was a no brainer.
