In our book, all coffee is created equally delicious (when made properly!). That’s why we’re not surprised when some find it difficult to choose between espresso, drip coffee, pour over, Moka or a press style when crafting the perfect cup. Luckily, Krups found some middle ground with the Moka Brew coffee maker. Brewing a hybrid between a Moka Pot and drip coffee, the Moka Brewer utilizes steam pressure to thoroughly saturate the coffee grounds for a full robust flavor.

- Raining Coffee!: The Moka Brewer features a shower head like brew head that rains glorious coffee during the brew process.

The carafe locking mechanism can be a little tricky at first, but simple once you get the hang of it! To unlock the brewer and gain access to the carafe push the safety button while simultaneously lifting the locking lever, all located on the top bar of the brewer.
|Tips and Tricks||
Filling the entire grounds container is recommended for the best overall flavor. Do not tamp like espresso, but loosely fill just below the edge.

This maker is at its best when used with a full filter basket of grounds. Also, this brewer does not have a warming/heating plate so you need to transfer the brewed coffee to an insulated carafe. This is also a good practice because the brewed coffee comes out *stratified*, with the weaker coffee on top and the stronger coffee at the bottom and pouring into a carafe effectively mixes up those layers.
Finally,I find that the ideal grind is quite fine--coarser than a true espresso grind but not by much. In fact, the grind I use falls into the "espresso" range of settings on my Breville Smart Grinder.
So while the Moka Brewer can consistently produce superior coffee, I'd call it an "intermediate" maker as the user will have to be able to exercise some common sense while dialing it in. (Posted on 1/6/2015)

Ordered the New Model and it brews a full pot of coffee just as tasty as the older model. Highly recommend the Krups Moka Brewer.
By the way- I still have my older model for backup. Who knows...it might still keep brewing for another 15 years.
