Technivorm Coffee Makers are the ultimate in stylish design and simple, yet superior functionality. Technivorm is synonymous with quality and it's easy to understand why. The key is the coffee brewing temperature. The Moccamaster brews between 197 and 205 degrees which is the coffee brewing "sweet spot". Each Moccamaster coffee maker is manufactured and assembled by hand and is individually tested in the Netherlands. They've been doing this since 1964.
Independantly tested and rated by some of the most discerning coffee connoisseurs throughout the world, it is consistently rated as the best home coffee brewer on the market.

Brew the best coffee with the best home coffee brewer you can buy!
Now the important question...How do you know which one to choose? Don't worry. Our Buyer's Guide is here to help. Before we find the perfect Technivorm to suit your needs, lets learn a bit about the standard features of every Technivorm.
Every Technivorm is made and assembled by hand in Amerongen in the Netherlands and features:
A stylish aluminum housing
The capability to brew coffee between 197.6°-204.8° F, which is the ideal brewing temperature
A 9-hole sprayhead that evenly saturates your coffee grounds for optimal extraction during brewing and a more flavorful and well rounded pot of coffee
A cone-shaped brew basket which takes #4 filters
A 1.25 liter water tank, so you can brew up to 10 cups of coffee at a time
A copper boiling element with a double safety guard to boil water quickly and efficiently
A short brew time - it takes just 5-6 minutes to brew a full pot.
An illuminated On/Off switch
An automatic or manual Brew Stop function when the carafe is removed from the brewer
Now, let's find the perfect Moccamaster to fit your needs:
Do you drink just a few cups at a sitting or prefer to savor a full pot throughout the day?
I only drink a few cups at a time.- You may want to consider a Technivorm model that features a glass carafe. These units all have built-in hot plates to keep your coffee warm after you brew, and are ideal for those who wish to drink a cup instantly or just brew a few cups at a time. The KBG 741, available in brushed aluminum and metallic red, features a glass carafe. I like my morning pot of coffee to last.- In this case, you'll probably prefer a Technivorm with a thermal carafe. The thermal carafes included with certain model Technivorms are made from stainless steel and are designed to keep your coffee between 176° and 185° F for a longer period of time. This is the optimal temperature for serving. Technivorms featuring this thermal carafe include: KBT 741, KBGT 741, and the CDGT 741.
Do you prefer to take a more hands-on approach to brewing, or not?
I don't mind being my own barista.- Professional baristas will tell you that through careful monitoring and timing of the extraction process, you can actually change the flavor profile of your coffee. The Manual Adjust Brew Basket found on some Technivorms lets you do this by allowing you to manually adjust the amount of time your coffee grounds are in contact with the water. The KBT 741 features this Manual Adjust Brew Basket. I prefer the machine do the work.- The Technivorm will still make a delicious pot of coffee, even if you'd prefer to be less hands-on. You'll want to look for a Technivorm that features the Auto Drip Stop Brew Basket. The KBGT 741, CDGT 741, and the KBG 741 models all feature the Auto Drip Stop Brew Basket.
Would you like your machine to have an Auto Off function?
I need a machine that automatically shuts off.- If you prefer to have a Technivorm that will shut itself off after 2 hours of non-use, then you'll want to choose either of the KBG 741 models we carry. Available in both brushed aluminum and metallic red, this model is the only one that features an auto shut-off function. I prefer to have a machine that does not shut itself off.- If you don't need a machine that automatically shuts itself off, then you can choose from any of the following Technivorm models: KBT 741, KBGT 741, or the CDGT 741.
Is the design of your Technivorm an important factor to you?
Yes! I want my coffeemaker to be functional and stylish.- All Technivorms feature timeless Dutch design. Two of our favorite uniquely styled Technivorms are the CDGT 741 model which features a distinctive cylindrical heating unit and water tank and our red metallic KBG 741, which features a bold, red metallic aluminum housing.
