Product Description

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.

Does this model also have an automatic pre-infusion (at the beginning of the brew cycle) like the KBGT 741?

Thanks a lot!
A shopper on Apr 30, 2013
Best Answer: 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."

Does this model keep the coffee in the pot warm via a base heater? The model I have does not.
A shopper on Jun 8, 2012
Best Answer: No, the Technivorm CDGT comes with a thermal carafe and, therefore, does not have a base heating element.

Can the Dezcal/water solution be left in a Technivorm Moccamaster CDT reservoir for a short period of time (say 10 minutes) for better scale removal WITHOUT damaging the clear plastic housing and chrome float cover? I've used this and Cleancaf back to back with one tank of water in between. I ran the machine without letting the solutions sit per instructions. A week later, the machine does not want to start again. The float is clear of debris. I have used Durgol Swiss Espresso in the past, let it sit for 10 minutes and it tarnished the chrome float cover and etched the clear plastic. I don't want that to happen again, but I want a thorough descaling. It had been about a year since I last descaled. I use purified (not distilled) bottled water 99% of the time. Thank you for your response in advance!

Dezcal Coffee/Espresso Machine Descaler
Dezcal Coffee/Espresso Machine Descaler
Best Answer: I would recommend, if you're wanting to let the descaler sit in the machine's water pathways for a little longer to allow it to break down any scale buildup, to put the descaler mixture into the machine in batches. I believe that given time to sit in the water tank, you can see a bit of tarnishing to that chrome-plated piece no matter the brand of descaler. So, to work around this, try making your water and descaler mixture in a separate bowl/container. Then, put about 1/3 into the tank, turn on the machine, and allow what's in the tank to be brewed, pulled into the machine. Once the water tank is clear, turn off the brewer, allow it to sit for 20 minutes, then repeat with another 1/3 of the mixture, then finally with the last 1/3. Afterward, brew two full tanks of water through to thoroughly rinse the brewer and all the pathways.

What is the difference in the acronyms other than T for thermal? There appears to be little difference when I compare the models.
Sam W on Nov 10, 2014
Best Answer: 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

Can its brew basket slow down drip rate or just one drip rate setting for all? Thanks!
Robert w on Nov 3, 2014
Best Answer: No, the Technivorm CDGT does not have a manual drip stop toggle switch on the brew basket, so the rate of flow through the basket is not adjustable. For a manual drip stop option, I would suggest looking at the KBT741 model at the link below:

We have this brand and it's the best! I have only one question:

How do we prevent overflow from the gold filter into the basket? We do grind our coffee beans fairly coarse. Thank you.
Karen G on Oct 4, 2014
Best Answer: If you are getting overflow with your Technivorm using a gold filter then you either have a bit of a blockage from coffee oils in the filter basket holes, or either too many grounds in the basket, or a bit too fine of grounds. I would suggest soaking the filter in hot soapy water to break down coffee oils, and then try adjusting the amount of coffee and the grind size you use to dial in the right flavor without overflow. Until you get this dialed it with the coffee you use, it is best to stay close to the Technivorm during brewing so that you can turn the unit off if the water level gets too high and threatens to overflow! Hope this helps!

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.
A shopper on Aug 7, 2014
Best Answer: 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.

Makes great coffee and promised!Review by BrianSF
Quality
Price
Value
This makes great coffee. I know you are reading these reviews as I have, trying to figure out what is the best coffee maker. Let me get the basics out of the way, it makes great coffee that is hot. The carafe works well for several hours. It's built like a tank and I expect many years of service out of it. Yes, there are plastic parts the you place and remove each time, but it makes sense to have them and allows you to clean and service the machine. These few plastic parts are high quality and easily replaced.

There are trade-offs with this version and the version that has the manual sealing cone filter. This version has an automatic drip prevention. When you remove the carafe the water stops. Nice. I would probably get the version with the manual lock. The manual filter lock is a little better at per-infusion if you want to do that, and making half pots of coffee by slowing down the flow. I always make a full pot so this is not really an issue. I've tried per-infusion a few times and I'm not convinced that it makes a difference for this brewer. The grounds always look well saturated, and the few times I tried it I didn't notice a big difference.

The real question is, is it worth it compared to the Bonavita? If I had used the Bonavita I could tell you. From all I can read is the coffee is about the same. I think it is because of the warranty and quality of materials.

I also replaced my grinder in the process. That made a major difference in the quality of my brew. If you are girding at home make sure you have the right grind that is consistent. I went with a Baratza Virtuoso, but I think the Encore would also have worked well. The Virtuoso has a timer and grinds twice a fast, but the grinding mechanism is the same.

Final recommendations....
Yes, the Mochamaster rocks! It's everything you read about it. You should have it for at least five years, $300/5years=$60 per year. Bonavita, $180/2years=$90 per year.
Make sure you are getting a good grind.

One last word..SCG is awesome and you should buy from them. They were generous with their expert advice, deliver lots of useful extra's and have a 30 return policy! Skip Amazon, and go with SCG!

High end products always come with the high price, so you're always hoping that they deliver on the promise.

The Moccamaster does. After a month of ownership, I'm happy with the purchase and I'm enjoying hotter, better tasting coffee day after day.

One unanticipated benefit of this machine is the ease of cleaning. It strips down into simple parts that are all easily hand washable immediately after the coffee's brewed. Keeping the machine clean is a breeze.

I'd write more but my coffee is getting cold!

Over 5 Years of Great CoffeeReview by Jerry
Quality
Price
Value
Yes, it's expensive out of the box but we're talking VALUE over the long haul.

I own the pre-improved version of this Technivorm, and have brewed 2-4 14 ounce carafes daily for over five years with this machine.

I did make an adjustment and purchased the Nissan Thermos, which brews directly into the thermos without air between basket and carafe.

No issues with quality-- I use about 21-22g of coffee to 310g (+/- a few) of water but I am adjusting that ratio and my grind. I once used between 16-17g of water to every gram of coffee. But once again, the ratio depends on your grind. I use a medium grind on the fine side with an old Breville conical burr grinder -- but I am rethinking that grinder now that I have a Vario.

I also close the basket for about 30 seconds after start, stir the cake, let it open, and then stir when the last drops empty from the water chamber, close it for 20 seconds, and then let it go again. Everyone must find their way. I'm still experimenting - I have also let the cake on top remain until the water empties from its chamber and then stir the cake so the coffee is flat when the water is gone from the basket.

Shower Stream -- I wish they would go to more of a rotary shower instead of the straight line shower - I've found that the middle drippers tend to dominate.

Basket -- the adjusting basket of less than 4 cups for one setting, and then another setting for more than 4 cups, works well. Once in a while the basket can get clogged -- maybe twice a year. Just wash the bottom of the basket.

Paper Filter -- I use a paper filter and will run 250g of water through the brewer before the coffee in order to wet the filter, warm the basket, and the thermos. It works well. I like "clean" coffee. I have used the gold filter but prefer not having sediment at the bottom of the cup, and so I use wet and warm filters.

Cleaning: I purchased the basic cleaning products available on the site and use them for the brewer, and "Grindz" for the grinder.

Verdict: Only purchase if you want great coffee and love to do the little things to make it great. (Posted on 11/8/2014)
A gazillion stars for customer serviceReview by Tony
Quality
Price
Value
QUALITY **
Quality rating isn't higher because water leaked out of the base on my first unit. I think there was a loose fitting or tube inside the housing. Although a tag says "individually tested", no leak test was done on this one. Also, the cover for the brew basket was missing. Seattle Coffee Gear replaced the whole unit at no charge.

Seattle Coffee Gear deserves ONE GAZILLION STARS for excellent service. They promptly sent a pre-paid Fed EX label to return the leaky coffee maker and the replacement unit was received within a week.

There are no issues with the replacement unit and the quality of the coffee is good. The coffee maker is easy to use and clean. The graduated lines on the reservoir are accurate. I've had other brands that were way off on water level.

PRICE *
This costs much more than I planned to spend to replace a very old Krupps, but the other brands had annoyances I didn't want to deal with every morning. Reviewers of other brands complain about difficulty pouring water into the reservoir, the water level is not easy to read, spilling coffee while pouring, smelly plastic, hard difficult to clean, that the brew basket must be removed before using the carafe.

VALUE ***
Without the first leaky unit, value would be four stars instead of three. If a programmable timer was included it would be five stars. For this high price, it's ridiculous not to include a timer. Technivorm's owner manual says no timer is used because water sitting in the reservoir overnight is not fresh and affects the flavor of the coffee. I'm drinking coffee, not pure water! If customers insist on using "fresh" water sitting inside a bottle or from the tap where water was sitting in a pipe over night then they won't use the timer.

I can recommend this coffee maker to you and have no regrets buying it. The carafe keeps the coffee hot enough for me on weekends. (I've heard it works even better if you run hot water through it first.) It makes good coffee and is backed by excellent customer service and a 5 year warranty. Go out and buy a programmable timer to start it in the morning too. (Posted on 11/2/2014)

We have used ours daily for a month and we are very happy with this machine. My skeptical wife could tell a huge improvement in flavor with the first cup. We migrated from a Capresso MT600 which I thought was the absolute best coffee maker until the Technivorm. The only improvement I think Technivorm could make could be the price.

Also, the purchase from Seattle Coffee Gear could not have been better. The rep I spoke with was not only polite and knowledgeable, she was actually fun to deal with. The product arrived on time in perfect condition. I would not hesitate to purchase from them again and highly recommend them. (Posted on 10/17/2014)

Designed only to brew the perfect cup of coffeeReview by William
Price
Value
Quality
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.

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. (Posted on 8/22/2013)

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. (Posted on 7/23/2013)

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. (Posted on 2/27/2013)
save your money - a $39 machine does the same brewReview by wendy hilt

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. (Posted on 2/26/2013)
The Mercedes-Benz of coffee makersReview by Bryan G

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. (Posted on 1/2/2013)
Perfect Cup of JoeReview by Benjamin

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. (Posted on 1/2/2013)

Once I decided on a Technivorm, I chose this model as the ultimate blend of form and function. Considering the bundled goodies, Seattle Coffee Gear had the best deal going. The videos were both entertaining and informative. Thanks for enabling me to start every day with a great cup of coffee! (Posted on 12/30/2012)

Makes a great cup of coffee at the right temp. I have owned other makers but this is the best yet. It performs just as good as Gail says it will. (Posted on 7/11/2012)

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. (Posted on 7/11/2012)
