Product Description

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.

Features & Functionality of the Krups Moka Brewer Coffee Maker

  • Raining Coffee!: The Moka Brewer features a shower head like brew head that rains glorious coffee during the brew process.
  • Steam Pressure: This coffee maker utilizes steam pressure to guide the water from the bottom reservoir to above the carafe (where the grinds reside) and continues to use steam pressure while brewing.
  • Auto Off: Automatically turns off 20 minutes after the brew process begins.
  • Permanent Filter: Show your love for planet Earth with this eco-friendly permanent filter. No paper filters needed!
  • Cord Storage: Keep your counter tidy with the wraparound cord storage located underneath the base of the brewer.
Pros
  • Simplistic - The Moka Brewer features one on/off switch for worry free brewing.
  • Retro Design - This coffee maker is an updated version of a previous Moka Brew model. Luckily, Krups kept the distinct design for true fans to recognize and adore once again.
Cons
  • Permanent Auto-Off - You are unable to disable the auto-off function that automatically occurs 20 minutes from the beginning of the brew cycle.

How Does it Compare?

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.

Does anyone have a recommendation on what type of grind is best for the Moka Brewer (i.e., drip, finer than drip, french press, etc.)?
David G on Oct 7, 2014
Best Answer: I find the finer I grind the better I like the results. This is my first time using this kind of process. I have always used drip grind in the past and really like my Krups.

What is the cleanup like on this? Since it doesn't have a paper filter, is it comparable to the cleanup on a Bialetti moka pot?
Juan R on Jun 3, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, the cleanup is fairly similar on this Krups Moka Brewer to a Bialetti Moka pot. The permanent filter on this unit will need emptied of grounds and rinsed, and the glass pot cleaned and air dried.

How many grams of ground coffee does the basket hold? Is it best to fill the basket to capacity, just like a moka pot? Wouldn't that mean that you can't make smaller amounts of coffee? How many ounces of finished coffee does this produce? Thank you very much!
A shopper on Apr 28, 2014
Best Answer: When we did testing, we found for best results you will need to use the full capacity of water and coffee for brewing in this Krups Moka Brewer Coffee Maker. Krups also recommends using full capacity of this brewer as well, and results for partial pots were not very strong. We liked the flavor from about 60 grams of coffee and the full 40 ounces of water. Hope this helps!

The best but also a little finikyReview by Dave

After countless auto drips and French press, this brewer blows them all away. Amazingly efficient, fast and tasty. Counter top footprint is also very small.

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)
Doesn't perform wellReview by Tim

I use a dark roast and no matter how much coffee I scoop into this model the end result ends up tasting weak. Also, the On/Off switch turns off minutes after the brew cycle, causing the freshly brewed coffee to lose its heat. (Posted on 10/11/2014)

I had the older model 10 to 15 years ago. I was looking for a replacement, just in case my older model was at the end of its lifecycle.
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.
