A Note About Coffee & Cups

Let us break it down for you: Although 8 ounces equals a cup in the baking world, a US cup of coffee is measured at 6 ounces and a European cup of coffee is measured at 4.25 ounces. This is why we sometimes list ounces to paint a more accurate picture of capacity.

Tips and Tricks

Water really does make a difference. Always use filtered water to make drip coffee taste better.

Amit C asked: Can you brew fewer cups? Mar 13, 2014

Teri KStaff: The Technivorm KBG741 has the auto drip stop, meaning if you pull the carafe out mid brew, the flow of coffee will stop, allowing you to pour a cup before the until has finished brewing. The KB741 has a manual drip stop, meaning that before you pull out the carafe, you need to flip the toggle switch on the brew basket to stop the flow of liquid before you remove the carafe. The manual drip stop version, the KB741, also allows you to put the toggle switch into a half position to slow down the flow of liquid for brewing a half pot, when you'd use half the amount of grounds and water, while the KBG741 does not. For this reason, if you frequently brew fewer cups, I would recommend the KB741. Mar 13, 2014

Bryan D asked: I'd been looking for a coffee machine that wasn't made in China, is handmade & came across Technivorm.
After some research I've decided that the Technivorm KBGC 741 AO YELLOW PEPPER is the machine that fits the bill.
Only one problem, I want the "Yellow Pepper" machine, Can Seattle Coffee Gear get this machine?
Thanks!

Teri KStaff: Hey Bryan,
Unfortunately we only offer the Technivorms in the colors on the website, and this Red Metallic is actually the only special color we offer, other than the Black, Silver, and White options. We can't special order the Yellow Pepper model for you, and I am sorry about that! Please let us know if you have any other questions, and know that if you choose a Technivorm you won't be disappointed with the coffee!

Eric S: Well, you are supposed to use filtered drinking water (i.e. Pur, bottled water) with all coffee makers to remove unwanted particles, but keep the mineral taste - but I have always used distilled water (similar to RO water) with my coffeemakers including this one, and have had no problems making delicious, hot coffee. Make sure you take your vitamins or drink tap water though! May 31, 2013

Brews very fast and rather quiet. Coffee tastes great and I love the look. I was a little reluctant to spend this kind of money but Seattle Coffee threw in so many extras it sealed the deal.

Best coffee maker on the market

This is my second Technivorm Moccamaster. My first one, which lasted more than 10 years, made fabulous coffee. This is even better. It heats water to to 200 degrees in practically no time, which translates into the perfect cup. I typically let the filter fill for about 30 - 40 seconds before sliding the carafe under the the filter cup. When I add whip milk to my coffee cup, the result is better than a capucchino.

We have had this coffee maker for a couple of months, and it makes the best coffee ever! I was a little reluctant to spend so much money on this machine, but after doing my research, this brand seems to last many years making it well worth the initial cost. I am so glad I waited until the red metallic machine was back in stock, as it looks great on my kitchen counter.

When the cuisinart burned up, it was panic time. It was a bit of a leap to spend the money but Cooks Illustrated has been mostly right on the money. After taking the chance I am not sorry one bit, it is a great machine for making a great cup of coffee. Life is too short to drink bad coffee and yet it is pervasive. Go for it., there is no going back.

Have been using the Technivorm Moccamaster now for a few months and have no complaints. It makes a good cup of coffee. Someone remind me why I waited so long to order? For those who would like extra brewing time for 4-6 cups, I found if you start the machine without the coffee pot on the burner plate and then turn the machine off when the grounds are covered by water. Allow it to seep for a few minutes. Replace the pot and turn the machine back on and you will get better flavor. Do keep an eye on the water level in the basket so you turn the machine off or it will continue to brew and over fill the basket. Yes, I did find this out first hand and do not multitask now while brewing 4-6 cups. If the coffee maker were to break tomorrow I would not hesitate in replacing it with another Technivrom. Also Thank You Seattle Coffee Gear for the very quick shipment.

This does give a good cup of java, however you must make sure the pot is lined up so the coffee hits dead center down the hole. If not it will splash off the lid first? The heat plate is made well and expected the rest of the parts to be the same for the $$$. It's what it is.

Great High-End Machine

Overall this is making a great cup of coffee for me. I like that the parts are replaceable for years of use. I will probably buy one for my mom. It brews fast, so I don't need an overnight timer. I am able to keep it under my low cupboards--I fill it up using the extending squirt hose from my sink.

Some input:
I wish there were more of the Moccamaster colors available--I love the orange one they have on their site.

I wish I could get the more high-tech filter basket that allows for longer brewing for smaller batches.

Also, the light on the heating element switch never comes on for me--what is that supposed to indicate?

Just purchased the Moccamaster after owning a Bunn for 10+ years (and doing a l ot of research). My goal was not to find the cheapest, the prettiest, the easiest to use, the one that made the most coffee, nor the one that had bells and trinkets (like a clock/timer). All I wanted was the most delicious tasting cup of coffee that a home machine had to offer.
And-HALLELUYAH!! I have not been disappointed!!! This machine delivers an amazing and delicious cup of coffee, every time!! I absolutely love this yummy cup o joe!! Woot!!

This is a fabulous machine - the coffee tastes great.

It looks great - I got it in red.

My only complaint is that it doesn't make enough - the other units are too tall to fit under my cabinets. It would be nice to have a unit that just made a few more cups but wasn't too much bigger.
