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 PatSag 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.Date published: 2018-06-26Rated 5 out of 5 by Sgcornerstone 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.Date published: 2018-02-10Rated 3 out of 5 by Qvikki 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.Date published: 2018-01-22Rated 1 out of 5 by StephG 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.Date published: 2017-12-14Rated 5 out of 5 by KoffeeKing 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 runsDate published: 2017-11-26Rated 5 out of 5 by KOFFEE GROUNDS from Outstanding Just brewed our first Pot, outstanding, features, from the easy pour carafe to the speed of brew and easy fill containerDate published: 2017-11-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Coffeelover from Best coffee brewer ever! I love this coffee brewer! It is clear by the taste that this brewer meets SCA brewing requirements. Today, I had a friend over for coffee who asked “This is the best cup of coffee I’ve ever had, how did you make it?” I was very proud to say that it was made on my new Motif coffee brewer. He immediately asked where he could buy one. Here are some of the features I love. The brewer brews quickly. I have averaged around 6 minutes per brew cycle. The coffee is hot. The thermal carafe keeps coffee hotter for longer than any other carafe I’ve used. The brewer really brings out the essence of the beans that I am brewing. The coffee is full of flavor, rich and full bodied. Don’t look any further for a new coffee brewer. This is the one.Date published: 2017-11-16Rated 5 out of 5 by coffeegal from Finally an Excellent Brewer for the Coffee Lover I am forever searching for the perfect coffee pot. I have tried all types, from the basic Cuisinart Brewer to a Chemex glass pour-over brewer. The Chemex yields a wonderful cup of coffee but who has the time to complete the whole manual process of pour-over every morning. I was looking for a brewer that produced results pretty close to the Chemex. The Motif pour-over has done that. I love how simple this pot is to use and especially to clean, something that many pots are lacking. The thermal carafe keeps the coffee hot for a while and most importantly it is easy to pour from. The pre-soak feature produces excellent results. I have found that the brewer works best when brewing for five or more cups. I brewed a smaller batch using four cups and the coffee was not as smooth and bold. I am so happy with this purchase, finally an end to my coffee pot search, at least for now.Date published: 2017-10-23
