It’s a well known fact that Technivorm brewers get lonely when not paired with the proper grinder (you’ve heard that too, right?). Cheer up your kitchen with the Technivorm Moccamaster KM4TT coffee grinder! Working with the force of gravity, this upside down grinder ensures your beans will not overheat from excess grinding by allowing ideally sized grinds to pass through the mesh filter as soon as they reach optimal drip coffee consistency. Grounds are then conveniently captured in the removable clear plastic container.
Features & Functionality of the Technivorm Moccamaster Coffee Grinder KM4TT
Innovative Design: The KM4TT is specifically designed to help grinds fall away from the active blade once they're optimal size for brewing drip coffee. No needless grinding!
One-Touch Grinding: Taking the guesswork out of grinding, this Technivorm grinder offers one simple button to push while grinding and release when complete.
Mesh Sifter: Integrated catching system eliminates unwanted large particles from staying in the grounds.
Handcrafted: Much like the Technivorm drip brewers, this grinder is handmade in the Netherlands. Dare we say, made with love?
Simplistic - No need to fuss with settings! This grinder features a one-touch easy push button for immediate grinding.
Perfectly Paired - This Technivorm grinder compliments any Technivorm drip brewer.
Sound Effects - While most grinders effortlessly generate some type of noise, we feel this grinder is a little louder than most.
Messy Mesh - We give the metal mesh an A for effort! However, the holes are slightly too large to grind for anything finer than drip-coffee.
Tips and Tricks
This grinder should only be purchased for brewing drip coffee. The Technivorm KM4TT is not built to achieve fine espresso consistency.
Best Answer:It's a blade grinder. Therefore, you can't adjust the coarseness of the grind. That being said, I bought it because I only use a Technivorm moccamaster drip machine. So, for that application it's perfect and I would buy it again. Having both of these really spoils you for great coffee!!
No. Burr grinders are generally more expensive but are better for espresso and other specialty coffee makers. This blade grinder is designed for grinding beans to use in a drip machine, such as the Technivorm Moccamaster drip coffee maker.
Best Answer:There is no mention of whether or not the plastic holder is dishwasher safe. However, since you're using it for coffee, rinsing in warm water and drying should be sufficient. That is what I've been doing. It is extremely easy to clean. When in doubt, leave it out (of the dishwasher).
Can you grind less than 400 grams of beans? Does it stop automatically or do you hold down the button to continue grinding? We would like to purchase a moccamaster from you and are wondering if we could just add the beans needed for one pot of coffee, push the button once and have it grind what we need for that pot. Thanks.
Best Answer:Yes of course you can grind less than 400 grams of beans. It does not stop automatically, you need to hold the button down and release when you are done grinding. You can certainly add the beans you need for one pot of coffee and hold the button down until you are done grinding and voila!
Can you guys do a video review of this product? All I want to do is grind coffee for a drip machine; this is a lot of money for a blade grinder. It'd go a long way to see the girl's review this and get the thumbs up or down. Also, are you sure this has a 5 year warranty? I can't find it anywhere in the manual you have posted.

Best Answer:To be frank, this grinder really isn't very consistent in the size of the granules, since it is a blade grinder. To get a more consistent grind, a burr grinder will typically produce a more consistent grind, and therefore a more consistent flavor. Possibly something like the Baratza Encore would produce that consistency, especially if you are only using it for drip coffee.
We will certainly add it to the list of potential video reviews, so keep a lookout!
The grinder has a 5 year warranty through Technivorm, but do keep in mind that you will want to do regular cleaning on the components.
I thought burr grinders were preferred over blade grinders. So, is anyone else surprised Technivorm didn't make a burr grinder (I know, the gravity thing on this one, but still...)?

Best Answer:Yes, we too generally prefer burr grinders over blade grinders, as you will always get a more consistent grind size. While the Technivorm grinder will never have quite the consistency of a burr grinder, the basket is intended to keep in the larger sized pieces, allowing the smaller sized pieces to fall through. If you're looking for the same brand, or same overall look to the Technivorm, this would be the closest to that same style, but if you're wanting to change the grind consistency, need a more consistent grind, or would like to brew for other methods than just drip, then a burr grinder might be a better fit for you.
Works perfectly for intended use!Review by Bruce B
We purchased this grinder for use with our Cup One Moccamaster brewer. It does exactly what it is supposed to do! No matter what beans we feed it the result is a perfectly timed brew of coffee. In 8 months of daily use the only issues were of the operator error type ("someone" didn't securely attach the bowl and we made a mess. It shouldn't happen again...). The perfect grind allows you to play with choice of beans to your hearts content and know that what you are getting is "what it is". We leave the burr grinder set for cappuccino and use this for coffee. We'd definitely buy it again! (Posted on 10/17/2015)
AWFUL AND OVERPRICEDReview by TO'B
We have had the MoccaMaster coffee brewer for several years, we love it. We purchased the grinder thinking it would be comparable to the brewing system, not even close. After
several frustrating years dealing with coffee grounds all over our kitchen counters because of the device's odd design, having to frequently disassemble and reassemble the grinder in humid weather when the ungrounded beans will not flow into the grinding chamber and cleaning the entire kitchen should said chamber becomes loose while grinding, we have decided to trash this $200 poorly designed and overpriced grinder and find a more functional/efficient one. Any suggestions?

Love it! If your looking for a good simple cup of coffee from the convenience of your own home, look no further. (Posted on 1/9/2015)
Good enough for what it isReview by Lisianski
This is a stand version of a blade or "shatter" type coffee mill. It seems to be designed to mill coffee for the Moccamaster drip coffee makers, which is what I use it for. It is fine for that, but it is not a general purpose mill with adjustable grind. It is expensive, but like the coffee makers, is very solidly made. (Posted on 7/2/2014)
