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.

A shopper asked: at this current time we use a 24oz. cusunart, that states it makes 4, 6oz. cups. We like amug of java.
So i would just use 3 cups of water, with 4 scoops of coffee.
My question is to make the above amount of java with this Technivorm, and Euro's consider 4.25 a cup of coffee and to my knowledge you use 2 scoops per cup, what will I need to get my same results I am used to???
thanks.. Bob

Linda P: I bought the 10-cup moccamaster coffeemaker awhile back. It comes with a scoop for the coffee. I followed directions to use one scoop of good quality coffee per two cups water - so a full pot of coffee would take just five scoops of coffee. I have found that it works quite well. Oct 1, 2013

Judi B asked: Assume this has a warming plate. Is it longer lasting than most other coffeemakers? Others tend to begin to rust. Apr 28, 2013

Teri KStaff: We have not had any customers report that their Technivorm warming plates have begun to rust, so I would not imagine that this is something you'd need to worry about. Keep in mind this machine does come with a 5 year warranty from the manufacturer, and it is very well made! Apr 28, 2013

This is a great machine and Seattle Coffee Gear was a great help in my decision. My only compaint involves the shipping. 3-5 days actually took 10.

This is by far my favorite drip coffee machine. By far the best drip coffee I have had. I love everything about it, apart from how fragile the carafe feels. The machine is easy to fill, and just as important it is easy to clean.

I should mention, if I weren't to have purchased this machine I would have certainly purchased the Bonavita. We have one at work, it too brews wonderful coffee. My reason being, I prefer having a glass carafe (although fragile) over the glass lined stainless carafe.

I've only had this coffee maker for about a month, but so far it is living up to expectations. I went with the glass pot since this version comes with a carafe warmer, is easy to clean, and is cheaper than the thermal carafe version. I'm brewing about half a pot at a time and the coffee tastes smoother than what I'm used to. This may just be the coffee vs the coffee maker. Only time will tell. I feel like I got a good deal from SCG for the following reasons: cheaper than buying the same product on Amazon.com, free shipping, and the extras: bag of coffee, gold filter, paper filters, cleaning kit and $20 gift certificate.

Everything else is a compromise. This is THE drip coffee maker.

First, the important part: If you don't own this, you're going through life drinking lesser coffee. This is an upgrade for your quality of life as a whole.

I can't quite give it 5/5 for price but certainly for value: Honestly, once you get used to the quality of coffee from this machine you will not consider it expensive. A lot of money, sure, but but it delivers on every dollar. A skillful barista can rival it with a hand poured cup, but even with my Hario gear I could not achieve this level.

This current version has some minor refinements to the carafe and other details making it even easier to handle and clean.

We needed a new coffee maker. Our old cuisnart stopped working. I did a lot of research and decided on the technivorm moccamaster. Although pricey, the quality of the coffee is unbelievable. I honestly did not think it would make that much difference, was I wrong. I would recommend to any serious coffee drinker. Simply unmatched
