Overview of the KBGT-741
Hi, I’m Pete with Kitchen Kapers and this is the Technivorm Moccamaster KBGT-741. Like all Technivorm Moccamasters, this machine is handmade in the Netherlands. It’s fully tested before they pack it up and ship it out. Like all Technivorm’s, it also has a copper brewing unit, a glass hot water delivery tube. It has the unique Technivorm showerhead with this pattern on it which effectively and evenly distributes the hot water over the coffee grounds.
The KBGT-741 has an automatic drip stop brew basket which has this lever here that’s activated by placing the carafe in the brewing position. If you are in the middle of brewing and you need to pour a cup of coffee you can simply pull off the carafe. The brewing stops. You can pour your cup of coffee, put the carafe back, and then it continues to pour down into your carafe.
This carafe does have a brew-through lid. And it also comes with the traditional lid that you can put on in place of it which is going to keep it hotter if you are going to store it for a longer period of time. And this thermal carafe does keep the coffee hot for a long period of time.
In addition to what we’ve gone over, what you also get in the box is you get a packet of descalers because you do want to regularly descale this machine to make sure that it gives you a lifetime full of service. And you get a few paper filters to get you started. You can also get a gold tone filter for this machine.
So, again, this is the Technivorm Moccamaster KBGT-741.
