Hi, Iím Pete with Kitchen Kapers, and weíre talking about the Technivorm Moccamaster. Some of you might know it as the Club Line. This is the model KBT-741, which is the thermal carafe model. Weíre just going to give you an overview of what comes with the machine, how to put it together, how to use it, and why we think itís such a cool machine.
The first reason we think itís cool is its' nice retro styling. This is actually the same styling that theyíve been using with this machine since they started making it in the 1960s. Itís still made in the Netherlands and itís just a great, solid, good looking machine.
Now we are going to go over the parts here. You of course have your carafe, which keeps it nice and warm. Youíve got two lids that come with this carafe now. This is the original lid that it has always come with it. It just screws on. You can brew right into the carafe, and then just screw this on and it will keep it nice and airtight to keep it hot. A lot of people really wanted a brew through lid where you could actually brew into the lid and you didnít have to switch out lids. So they came out with this a couple years ago, and this is a lid that has a hole down the center, so you can actually put this in and brew right into the center. Now, the one downside to that is it doesnít keep it quite as hot because it does have that hole in it.
Now Iím going to put it together here. Youíve got your showerhead. Youíll see this nice pattern on the showerhead; which is one of the reasons this makes such good coffee. This just pops on there. Put your water in here, and youíve got your lid for there.
Now, this plastic reservoir is the only place that water touches plastic. Once the water starts getting heated up, itís never passing through plastic parts. Itís not passing through a plastic or rubber tubing or anything, because I know thatís really important to a lot of people. You donít want that really hot water touching any plastic parts. Itís going to pass only through glass and through copper in here.
Take your brew basket. And your brew basket doesnít have a traditional pause and serve like you might find on some other auto drips. It has this part you can just adjust. So this is a full brew. This is for a little bit slower brew if you really want to maximize the aroma. And then the pause and serve is just all the way down, and itís not going to drip out the bottom.
That guy goes on there. Your lid goes over there. Of course, you stick your filter and coffee in there. That should go without saying.
Weíre going to use the brew through lid. And then letís just stick this on here to brew. And thereís a little safety switch here, which is a little white button. In order to brew, you need to make sure that your carafe is in place because you donít want to forget to put the carafe there and brew coffee all over your counter.
So that goes in there. Iíve already got it in the ON position, but weíll just turn that on like that. And we brew. It makes the best cup of coffee weíve ever tasted. We sell our own beans that we have custom roasted for us and this is the machine that weíve chosen to demo in all of our stores to really make sure that weíre getting the best cup of coffee out of our beans.
