Technivorm Reviews

Technivorm Moccamaster Review by Matt, Kitchen Kapers Wayne:

Here are some of the things about the Technivorm Moccamaster that I'd like to point out, beyond that I think it's simply the best automatic drip coffeemaker in the world. Even for the price, you just can't find anything made like this these days.

This is handmade in the Netherlands. Every model is tested. All of the parts that come in contact or anywhere near the coffee are removable and cleanable.

It's the only coffeemaker that guarantees to brew between 195 and 205 degrees. It guarantees to brew in right around six minutes and the combination of those two facts provide you with the best cup of drip coffee that you can get.

The ability to remove all the coffee parts make this a brewer that isn't going to have any sort of yucky buildup. It's a coffeemaker that won't brew unless it has water in it. It won't brew unless it's operating properly, and it literally has the best thermal carafe in the business.

It also is one of the only coffeemakers approved by both the European and American Specialty Coffee Association. That is an illustrious seal of approval.

Technivorm Moccamaster Coffeemaker Review by Cindy, Kitchen Kapers English Village:

The Technivorm KBT741 Moccamaster is a really good coffeemaker. That's its primary function. It starts its process in 30 seconds. It has a brewing cycle of six minutes. One of the best things about this machine is that it's very, very quiet compared to other drip coffeemakers, which make a lot of steam noises and bubbles and gurgles. This is very quiet.

The Technivorm Moccamaster brews at a maximum or optimum 197 degrees Fahrenheit, which is perfect brewing temperature for coffee. It has a nine-hole showerhead, so it distributes the water evenly over the coffee grounds. It has a basket that you can close down by hand so that you can shut it off if you have to remove your carafe, or you can put it at the center setting, which makes for a stronger brew because the water stays in the coffee grounds longer.

The machine itself is handmade. Each Technivorm Moccamaster is handmade in the Netherlands. The heating coil is copper, and itís double insulated. The company itself is really nice because they use things that are either recycled or degradable. So it's a very green company.

But the coffeemaker itself, its primary function is to make coffee, and it makes the best drip coffee. It was rated #1 by Cooks Illustrated Magazine, which takes no advertising dollars, so you can really trust their research.

It's on my wish list. The other thing thatís nice about it is that it doesn't have to sit with the machine, the carafe. You can take it out of the room with you to your desk, to your patio and enjoy really, really nice, hot coffee.

Technivorm Moccamaster Coffeemaker Review by Dennis, Kitchen Kapers East Gate:

The Technivorm KBT741 coffeemaker is an exceptional coffeemaker. The 10-cup stainless steel thermal carafe holds your coffee between 176 degrees and 185 degrees for that perfect cup of coffee.

The KBT741 starts to brew after 30 seconds from power on and brews a full 10-cup pot in between 5-6 minutes.

Inside the aluminum housing is a copper boiling element with a double safety guard, brewing coffee between 197.6 degrees and 204.8 degrees. Those temperatures help to extract more of the flavor and essential oils from your beans for a premium cup of coffee. A nine-hole spray head saturates the grounds to help with optimum flavor extraction.

Every Technivorm Moccamaster KBT741 is hand assembled and tested at the Amerongen Factory in The Netherlands. Each machine has a hand operated drip stop, meaning that when you slide the lever on the front of the filter holder to the bottom position, the coffee will stop dripping into the carafe. It also features brew stop. This feature stops the water from continuing to flow over the coffee in the filter when the carafe has been removed for pouring your individual cup.

Each Moccamaster KBT741 is tested and approved by the European Coffee Brewing Center in Oslo, Norway, and is the only home brew coffee equipment certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America and the Specialty Coffee Association of Europe. And best of all, it uses no power at all when not brewing, except for the on/off indicator light.

This can be considered a premium coffeemaker. It performs better than lower priced models and brews a more flavorful cup of coffee and, in turn, makes for an excellent value.
