The Moccamaster Coffee Brewer is said to be the best coffee maker globally, but does it live up to the hype?
The Moccamaster is a pretty old coffee maker, but the manufacturer has managed to keep up modern brands by adding advanced features to ease the brewing process. This particular model outdoes lots of other brands in the market.
The coffee maker brews some tasty pots of coffee almost indistinguishable from Java coffee. And the flavor remains consistent regardless of the number of pots you brew, thanks to the unique extraction process.
Apparently, this Coffee Brewer is equipped with a 9-hole outlet arm that releases water at 196 – 205°F, which is the right temperature for coffee extraction. We also noted a few tricks that will help you brew some tasty coffee using this brewer:
- Add cold water, i.e., fresh from the tap, and avoid decanting it into the reservoir
- Use a permanent filter or a high-purity one
- Use ground coffee beans (should be medium coarse)
- Add 7 grams of coffee only for every three ounces of water
Ease of use
The manufacturer certainly put great thought into this model’s function. Apart from the funnel-lipped carafe and safety button, the machine has many other features that make it easy to operate.
First, it has a flat cover that is easy to remove and has a wide opening that makes it easy to pour water. In addition, the tank has visible water markings calibrated into units of cups and liters for easy estimation. Cleaning it is also a breeze because most of the parts are large and removable.
Apart from the aesthetics and fast brewing time, the Technivorm Moccamaster Coffee Brewer has many advanced features.
The hot plate switch and the power switch stand out. The power switch turns off automatically after an hour, while the hot plate switch allows you to set the right temperature (175-185°F) for the coffee for 100 minutes.
While this coffee maker is pricier than other coffee makers on the list, it’s worth every dime. Its ability to brew lots of coffee at the touch of a button and the numerous advanced features makes the Technivorm Moccamaster Coffee Brewer beat its competitors hands down. What’s more, it can brew coffee in just six minutes, which saves time.
The coffee maker is way out of range for many households, especially for a luxury appliance. But if its performance, thoughtful design, and consistently tasty batches of drip of coffee are anything to go by, the Moccamaster should be added to every home.
