Technivorm Moccamaster can be described as hand-crafted filter brewer. For many years, the makers of this fascinating coffee brewer have ensured that optimal standards are deployed during the manufacture and assembling of the coffee machines.
The personal touches added to this coffee maker make the product more unique. One other thing that makes this drip coffee brewer so special is the fact that the brewing temperature.
Along with the water and coffee contact time and the holding temperature, has been automatically set in accordance with the European Coffee Brewing Center specifications. Similarly, the specialty Coffee Association of America standards were also considered when the coffee machines were made. The seals of these associations are placed on the coffee machine.
A Moccamaster coffee maker comprises clean lines and sharp angles that make the machine so attractive. The machine also comes with the following features to ensure a perfect cup of coffee every time:
- Liberal use of metal, plastic, and glass materials (glass carafe).
- Comes with a trimmed rectangular base.
- Comes with a tall tower that is completed by a trapezoidal-shaped water tank.
- Located on the right side is an enclosure that has a hard plastic funnel which contains standard paper filters (4 different types). This machine is also designed to accept permanent gold filters for that perfect cup of coffee.
- Comes with a brew basket (or filter basket) that works with a thin black plastic base.
- The body is designed with a tall stainless steel thermal frame.
- It measures 15.5” x 10”. The machine also weighs just 4.8 lb and measures 6” in depth.
Instead of the usual spout found on traditional coffee machines, Technivorm Moccamaster comes with a lip-shaped collared metal funnel that allows you pour your coffee from any angle and direction—it also allows you to pour your coffee straight up or sideways. The container housing the compartments is stabilized by the presence of a curved socket and it allows the carafe to be slide into its station properly through the pressing of a white button.
The brewing process
For the brewing process to commence, you need to press the white button and at the same time flip the on/off switch. This process set up will help you avoid the fluid from scalding, especially when it starts flowing within the machine.
Likewise, the absence of carafe may also cause the liquid to scald. All you need to do is fill the water tank and then drop the filter paper, along with the coffee grounds that has been scooped into the brew basket, then swivel the water outlet arm over the basket and into its proper position before pushing the brewing button.
Usability and other specifications
Despite the fact that the Technivorm Moccamaster comes with sleek and fluid metallic components, the machine still manages to stay light at just 4.8 lb. There seems to be a lot of thought taken into consideration when the Technivorm Moccamaster was being designed, especially in terms of the white safety button, plus the carafe funnel lip which makes the machine incredibly easy to operate.
There is a flat cover located on the top of the water tank and it reveals a wide mouth once it is removed while making it much easier for water to be poured into the device. The tank itself also comes with some clear labels that help you see the watermarks.
Most of the components of Technivorm Moccamaster are large and modular. Likewise, they are removable, making them easier for cleaning of disassembling. The cleaning of this device is painless; however, you must exercise caution because washing it in the dishwasher is extremely forbidden.
Using the Technivorm Moccamaster is fun and it is very durable, especially with its stainless steel metal structure. It is also built sturdily to withstand any mechanical pressure. Likewise, it is very easy to maintain and clean. The machine costs less than $300 at most retailers and it comes complete with a manufacturer’s warranty.
