Designed by the coffee experts at Seattle-based Motif, this pour-over-style automatic brewer is the culmination of 25 years of brewing experience. A state-of-the-art water heater quickly reaches and holds the ideal brew temperature. Pre-infusion triggers "blooming" to release the unique flavors of every type of coffee.

  • Heats water to the industry-standard brewing temperature within 60 seconds, then maintains it between 197.6˚F and 204.8˚F throughout brew cycle.
  • Maintains water/coffee contact for 4–8 minutes for optimal flavor extraction.
  • Pre-infusion mode simulates the pour-over method as the showerhead dampens coffee grounds for 20 seconds to develop the fullest flavor.
  • Double-walled stainless-steel thermal carafe keeps coffee warm with no need for reheating.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Motif: Our Favorite The most appealing aspect or feature of this model is the overall reliability of the taste of coffee how dependable the brewer is for a good tasty cup of coffee. Listening for those short beeps telling me that coffee is ready to pour is just "music to our ears." Now that brewing is finally complete, morning coffee is ready to pour and finally ready to drink. Day after day, I'm confident that this first cup of coffee will be not only taste delicious but it will always be hot. The only real difference in our brewing process is the type coffee bean (we prefer strong, bold coffee). My only small concern is that there's no program timer available for this model (our current Motif, however, offers this programing feature). There are so many excellent, well-made coffee machines on the market, and Motif is really no different. This is the second Motif coffee machine and, by far, it will not be our last.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Coffee Bought this coffee maker after trying the mocha master. The mocha master made very good coffee but did not LOVE it so could not justify the expense. Decided to try this coffee maker. We have had it 9 months and are much happier with the end product. We are very glad we made this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine I waited several months after I purchase this coffee maker before writing this review. Excellent coffee taste, always the right temperature, it is quiet and super quick. Coffee is easy to make and the carafe keeps coffee hot for a long time. It is also easy to clean. I tried other machines before keeping this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good morning Joe! Bought the Motif to replace an Oxo 12 cup ( never worked right) I was headed for the Technivorm when I saw this unit and found it is a Bonavita company. It makes a really great tasting hot cup of coffee. What else do you want from it? Ok it beeps when it’s done. Easy to use and clean up. Oh, if you put the pot back in first then the filter holder there won’t be any issues with it lining up and leaking. I’m real happy with this unit more so because I saved more than $100.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great cup of coffee Really delicious coffee easy to use quick and the thermal pot keeps the coffee hot for my husband who wakes up 3 hours after me. Only bummer 2 times the pot or ground bean holder were not lined up and the coffee did not flow into the pot but instead all over my counter in the drawers all over my flooring splashed over my legs burning my leg (not severely just uncomfortable) grounds and coffee everywhere. Please be aware not a great way to start the day.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I expect more from Williams-Sonoma I was so disappointed with the quality & design. The coffee filter holder does not line up to properly and lock into place. Also, the carafe lid won't poor the coffee out without going all over the place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cup Coffee You Can Get From a Home Brewer The motif brews the best cup of coffee you can get from a home brewer. It beats everything on the market, even units at 2x + the price. You can’t beat the price under $200, very good looking design which takes up minimal counter space, and pre-soak option which improves taste. Water temperature is exact/ We are impressed and continue to look for good things from motif in the future. Pros - Awesome cup of coffee in minutes out of the box - Light weight and easy to set up - Good looking industrial design - Solid, insulated carafe - Takes up minimal counter space Cons - Directions a bit confusing... here’s what you do. Load water, filter and coffee and then push either ‘Power’ OR ‘Pre-soak‘ and cycle runs
