Technivorm Moccamaster Coffee Brewer With Thermo Carafe Review

Posted on 03. Sep, 2012 by in Product Reviews

Amazon ImageThe Technivorm Moccamaster Coffee Brewer is an impressive looking machine that feels very substantial and will last a long time. It has a high power rating of 1400 Watts, a large 1.25 litre capacity and an industrial aluminium casing with a stainless thermal carafe.

It has some other great features that help it stand tall above the majority of other drip coffee machines out there.

Features

The first great feature we read about was the insulated siphon from the hot water chamber which protects water that has just been heated from losing temperature before it hits the coffee grounds. It’s one of the biggest problems with cheaper machines and the biggest reason for the coffee they make to not be the greatest.

The vacuum insulated carafe is able to keep the coffee hot for a long time (some have claimed hours). The only slight issue being that it’s a little tricky to pour cleanly.

It’s really quick to brew and the temperature is consistent and accurate enough to create a really smooth taste, one of the best flavours you’ll get from a drip machine.

What others say

The  Technivorm Moccamaster Coffee Brewer has had some great reviews online with an average rating around 4 out of 5. Here are some of the highlights of what others have been saying about it.

The Good:

  • Really quick and easy brewing
  • The best flavour many people have had from a drip coffee maker
  • Excellent build quality and looks very pro
  • Excellent temperature control
  • Reservoir and filter basket are well separated to prevent spill from one to the other

The Bad:

  • The premium price will put some people off
  • Some people disagree about the build quality – maybe they just had a defective unit? (it can happen with anything)
  • No auto-off function
  • No timer

Summary
