Quick Overview

From Technivorm's original Thermal Coffee Brewer CDT model, the CDGT has made a few upgrades for a better cup of coffee. Slight changes include the design of the filter basket, basket bracket and a bit of a physical change in the finish of the tower. With the change in the filter holder, you'll now be able to remove the pot and it automatically closes the flow of the coffee. The changes in the body finish is a vertical corrugated design but it still has the same polished silver look.

A space age rocket silo sitting on your countertop? From Technivorm's original Thermal Coffee Brewer CDT model, the CDGT has a few upgrades for a better cup of coffee. Changes include the design of the filter basket, basket bracket and a bit of a polish to the tower. With the change in the filter holder, you'll now be able to remove the pot and it automatically closes the flow of the coffee. The changes in the body finish is a vertical corrugated design but it still has the same polished silver look.

Features & Functionality of the Technivorm Thermal Coffee Brewer

  • Filter Basket Upgrade: The new design allows you to take the pot off the heating element while avoiding spills as it automatically closes the flow of your coffee.
  • Design Changes: With the same silver polish finish as the original CDT model, you'll find a new design in the CDGT's tower, a vertical corrugated pattern that's said to match the Techinvorm KM4 grinder model.
  • Brewing Temperature: Brewing temperature between 198-205F and holding temperature between 176-185F meeting the requirements of the ECBC/SCAE/SCAA
  • State of the Art Brewing: Nine-hole spray head wets the grounds in the filter basket during the brew cycle. Brew cycle completes in five to six minutes.
  • Heavy Duty Boiler: Durable copper element with dual safety guard
  • Easy Filter Options: Can be used with a reusable Swiss Gold cone filter or can use disposable paper filters
  • Water Level: The Moccamaster CDGT has an easy to read water level container
  • Thermal Carafe - Includes a thermal carafe that keeps the coffee fresh and hot. Indicator light shows when the carafe is in correct position to start brew cycle. Includes the brew through lid and the closed top travel lid.
Pros
  • Upgrades - You'll find this to be the same functioning machine as the CDT that you've grown to love but with upgrades in certain areas to make coffee making more convenient
  • It Brews Hot Enough - One of the few coffee makers that brews at the optimal 200F and is certified by the SCAA (Specialty Coffee Association of America)
  • Great Tasting Coffee - Drip coffee is 'sooooo' much better when brewed at the correct temperature and with the right equipment
  • Built Right - This is one of the most durable and best quality coffee brewers we have ever tested, and it's clearly built to last.
Cons
  • Bulky - Takes up a lot of prime counter space.
  • Design - Space age design might not be to everyone's liking

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.

John S: To quote another reviewer:

"When you want to bring it up a notch, you can pull the filter basket out a little bit so it doesn't drain. This will "steep" the grinds. This is the same as the "closed" feature on its predecessor. When I have the time I will first steep and get all of the grinds fully wetted. Then, after letting the liquid pour into the caraffe, stir the grinds 1-2x times throughout the remainder of the brew cycle."

A shopper asked: I wanted to know if this (or any Technivorm brewers) have an automatic shutoff for electricity? Members of my household never shut anything off....it drives me crazy. Aug 7, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: The thermal carafe models of the Technivorm CDGT do not have automatic shut offs, however without a hotplate under the carafe, there is not a real need for an auto off, as the heating element doesn't heat without water. If you are still more comfortable with a unit with an auto off, the Technivorm models with glass carafes like the KBG741 turn off completely after 2 hours.

A shopper asked: I see three models of the Moccamaster being offered but can't discern what the functional differences are from the product information provided. Does anyone know? Jun 14, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: The differences between the different models of Technivorm are carafe (either thermal or glass) and brew basket drip stop (either manual or automatic). The models with a manual drip stop include the KBT741, the KB741 and KBTS models. The automatic drip stop models are the CDGT741, the KBGT741, and the KBG741. The manual drip stop basket models have a toggle switch on the basket that allows you to choose the fully open, fully closed, or middle position for the rate of flow through the basket. This means that you can close the flow rate going to the carafe during brewing in order to either pour a cup, or put the toggle in the middle position to slow things down. This middle position on the manual drip stop versions is generally used if you are brewing a half pot and using less water and coffee. The auto drip stop versions simply have a connection that is lost if the carafe is pulled out during brewing (if you want to pour a cup to drink before the unit is done brewing) that stops flow from the basket, and once the carafe is replaced, the flow continues. Hope this clarifies, but if you still have questions give us a call! 866-372-4734 Jun 16, 2014

I have been enjoying my TM CDGT for a year now and am loving the coffee. The spout where the water comes out has pitted holes and for some reason my husband and I can't figure out, hot water pours out under the lid of the basket and drips down the basket handle onto to the counter.

Had my Mocamaster for 2 years now. It still makes greak coffee and never had any mechanical issues. I use the clean cafe to clean my machine and also the descaler like every three months. Great looking machine that is made very well and still looks like the day I bought it. I use it at least 9 times a week. I wish they would make it with a timer. I just purchased a 24 hour timer and my coffee is ready for me in the morning. No regreats at all. Love my Mocamaster!!

Designed only to brew the perfect cup of coffee

This is the updated unit that does not have the manual shut off on the filter housing, that means if you want to pre-saturate the grounds before releasing into the carafe you have to pull the filter housing off the shelf a bit so the stop drip closes. Not a major issue but it's interesting that they did away with this feature that could have easily been incorporated into the newer model.

Everything about this unit is no frills, but very high quality designed to technically brew the best cup of coffee possible. And it does!

There is no timer as incorporating a timer would mean you are using water from the night before and grounds that are not freshly ground.

This unit is designed only to brew the best cup of coffee in 6 minutes at 202 degrees.

I'm very happy with it.

We are very happy with this product. It makes excellent tasting coffee and is very fast. We like the simplicity and the design. The only problem we have had is when we did not measure the coffee, put in too much and subsequently had an overflow problem.

This machine has spoiled me for all others. It is a joy to have great coffee with little effort, and with a taste that rivals a pour over. The Technivorm is fast, too, much faster than my old DeLonghi (and I loved my DeLonghi). And the thermal carafe keeps it plenty hot for well over an hour, so if you fix it in the morning before others wake up, you're good to go. And no hot plate to burn it. And of course what others have said, like a copper heater instead of aluminum, steel arm instead of plastic, made in Europe instead of China, etc. They have improved on things other reviewers have mentioned, too, like an integrated carafe bottom. You can't go wrong with this coffee maker. Sure it's expensive, but it's definitely worth it.

Best coffee ever.
Easy to use coffee filter system. Would recommend the Technivorm filters because of the quality. Easy to dump the grounds too because the filter doesn't stick in the basket because of the ribbed design.
It's also easy to have a smaller pot with the measuring system.
Thermos does an excellent job of keeping coffee warm and it is non-drip when pouring.
The price isn't off putting when you think of the quality of the coffee, the quality of the components and the attractive design.

This is a really great coffee maker. I have bought 2 of them - one for each of our homes. It's a little expensive, but I think the old saying that "you get what you pay for" holds true here.
The coffee tastes great and it stays hot for a long time without changing its flavor. I would highly recommend this product.

This my second Technivorm. My first one lasted 10 years and it probably quit due to my neglecting to descale at regular intervals. I won't make that mistake again. I feel that it brews the best cup of coffee out there and is well worth the price.

The footplate can be an issue as it was with my first one. While assembling the unit out of the box, nothing I did could keep the unit from rocking and I was really frustrated, but when I turned the unit on its side to troubleshoot, I discovered that one of the rubber foot thingies had fallen off and was still in the bottom of the box. Problem solved.

Once you adjust to the size of the machine, you will never want to be without it.

Bought this machine based on all the gee whiz reviews written. Gee whiz - what have these people been drinking all these years - certainly not coffee, because the Mocha Master that I bought makes exactly the same coffee as every other coffee maker I've ever purchased. I've been drinking coffee since 1974, and have a 5 cup a day habit. The thought of a superior cup motivated me to plunk down $300. Exactly the same coffee that any other pot makes. And the carafe is exactly the same as the one I have at home. Save your money - this is not the be all, end all of coffee pots. Wish one person had written an honest review, and warned me off before I wasted my money.

While expensive, I think it is made with material and workmanship that I hope lasts a long time. I chose this model because it's designed to allow me to pour a cup in the midst of brewing - without having to toggle or stop the drip with a switch. The design is also industrial, chick, and contemporary - it looks good anywhere in the kitchen.

The special brew lid also allows for a pour so there's no need to switch lids unless I was going to transport the carafe or take it with me.

Pros:
1. Brews quickly
2. Auto-shut off (after 100 minutes)
3. No silly digital displays
4. Ability to grab a cup of coffee while brewing

Cons:
1. Carafe is stainless and won't keep coffee hot for more than 30 minutes if there is less than 2 cups of coffee left. (I think the Bonavita's glass lined stainless carafe would hold the heat better.)

2. The plastic "plate" underneath the carafe doesn't stay attached to the coffee maker - almost worthless in my opinion.

Great coffee maker. Comes out hot and strong, just the way I like it. This coffee maker screams quality, but a little pricey. I just wish they made a larger one for the American home. The coffee does not last long in my house. Might buy another thermal carafe to use when company comes over. SCG is a great company to deal with and have awesome customer service. All questions answered quickly.

Perfect Cup of Joe

Review by

I just received this coffee maker from Seattle Coffee Gear and was delighted by my first cup of coffee. Some positives include:

* Brews at the proper temperature to extract ALL the coffee flavor from your grind
* Brews quickly and allows the thermal carafe to be removed mid-cycle with NO spills
* Solid build quality that I fully expect to last for years
* Expensive but you get what you pay for
* Generous "extras" provided by Seattle Coffee Gear

As much as I like the coffee maker, I have a few quips and some "suggestions" for the manufacturer to incorporate in future builds.

The Technivorm is BIG by any definition -- my wife's first reaction was that it looked like a piece of industrial manufacturing equipment. Verify that you have at least 18" of clearance to any wall hung cabinets or the coffee maker may not fit. Perhaps Technivorm could retain the same functionality in a more svelte package [think Apple iPhone 5]. Then again, it's sure to be a talking point among house guests.

There are too many parts to keep track of. The instruction manual suggests that this is "by design" to facilitate cleaning but there are several ways the so-called design could be simplified. First of all, the "optional" locking footplate (on top of which the carafe sits) is not really optional. If you do away with it, the top edge of the carafe will not fully depress the automatic drip stop and no coffee will make it's way into the pot. If Technivorm lowered the drip stop by a 1/16 inch, the platform would be unnecessary. That would be an improvement because the footplate doesn't really "lock" in place either -- it tends to fall off when sliding the coffee maker around.

Another suggestion would be to make a screw top that worked WITH the destratification (or brew though) tube. As it stands, you must remove the tube to install the screw top which means you need to store the screw top separately. It's only a matter of time before I loose the top in some forgotten cabinet.

The power cord is ridiculous. I don't know how many amps the heating element draws so I can't fault the gauge of the wire used but it's unwieldy stiff and the plug is not at a right angle which means it sticks out from the outlet several inches. Perhaps Technivorm could address this and make the cord grey so it's not QUITE as unsightly.

Looked at a vast number of coffee makers. All my findings pointed me back to this one. I have a grinder and don't need one "built in".
I really don't need the "automatic". I did find you have to be mindful of the grind so the filter will not overflow. All in all the is is a great coffee maker. The temperature is just right. I would recommend this model to anyone.
