Moccamaster KBGT Review

The Master of the Perfect cup

 My Week Courting Perfection With the Technivorm Moccamaster 79312 KBGT

For years, I wanted easy home brewed coffee that tasted like café coffee without lots of complex machines cluttering my counter. I thought if I studied the coffee beans closely enough, answers would come.

But my attempts made bitter coffee soup. Then I found the Technivorm Moccamaster machine: it changed my coffee life. It's indeed one of the best drip coffee makers I reviewed.

Technivorm Moccamaster's simple design hides the good engineering inside. Without fancy lights and parts, the spaceship-shaped carafe and plain base stand out like understated people telling a good story with few words. Setup requires flipping a switch and using the included fuzzy cloth (a simple tool at home on a mountain path).

The machine works simply: coffee drip rains down onto grounds trapped in a washable filter. During brewing, there is nothing to adjust - just sit back and let the good coffee drip flow. My first heavenly sip felt like unlocking part of the universe itself.

Unlike other machines that dump water at set times, Technivorm uses high tech that turns off when the coffee is perfect - no guessing needed. And no paper filters - just a seasoned metal catcher that gets better over time.

While easy to wipe down, stubborn stains come after a month, showing the need for occasional deeper cleaning. Amazingly, the water reservoir promises a full 10 years of trouble-free service before needing replacement.

In summary, though easy as a poem, Technivorm Moccamaster's skill raises drip brewing to new heights. With this machine, many pour-over machines and unpredictable gadgets become not needed. For a fair price, Technivorm Moccamaster delivers unbelievable freshness and nuance, waking up your inner barista through simple craftsmanship that gets the perfect brew.

Coffee seeker, your search now ends. Put down worries and fixing habits. With Technivorm Moccamaster beside you, all that's left is to sip your coffee.

The machine features an automatic drip-stop brew-basket that stops the flow of coffee if the carafe is removed, which reduces mess in the kitchen.

Fast brewing time: It can brew a full 40oz pot of coffee in just six minutes, making it faster than many other machines on the market.

The thermal carafe keeps coffee hot for up to 60 minutes.

It is made of high-quality materials, such as stainless steel and copper, making it durable and long-lasting.

This coffee maker maintains a consistent temperature throughout the brewing process, resulting in even coffee extraction and a perfect brew.

The machine is easy to operate with a simple and straightforward design. It has a user-friendly interface that makes it easy to adjust the brewing temperature and other settings to your liking.

It is an eco-friendly machine, as it has a reusable metal filter and does not require paper filters.


The machine may be relatively large and take up a lot of counter space in a small kitchen.
