Technivorm-Moccamaster has been perfecting the art of coffee making since 1964. All of their coffee makers are manufactured and assembled by hand, and each one is individually tested before it leaves their factory in the Netherlands.
Because these high-quality machines maintain optimal temperature (between 195° and 205°F) throughout the entire brewing process, Technivorm-Moccamaster is one of only two coffee makers to be certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America.
The Technivorm-Moccamaster factory is centrally located in the heart of the Netherlands and serves customers all over the world. With attention to detail, the company produces simple-to-operate coffee makers that are durable and dependable.
Committed to helping solve the world’s pollution and waste problems, they manufacture energy-efficient, “long life” products made from recyclable or fully degradable materials.
I love this coffee maker, and wish I would have got it years ago! After returning an all in one grinding/brewing machine that brewed lackluster coffee and took a long time to clean, we got the Mochamaster. It's extremely easy to clean and use, and flat out makes superb tasting coffee, and I'm pretty picky about coffee. You can really taste the notes of flavor in the beans.
It seems to be built like a tank - you can tell in the design of details like the power switch that has a solid professional feel to it. If you're on the fence, Sur La Table has a great return policy
I don't think that we are particularly hard on coffeemakers, but my husband and I have gone through no less than 5 coffeemakers in the last 10 years. We finally decided to try something completely different. This coffeemaker, recommended by Cook's Illustrated, pleased my industrial designer husband, who is impressed by the fact that all of its functional elements are separate, and the brew basket is not going to overflow into the heating element, which seems to be the Achilles heel of most coffeemakers. AND, it makes great coffee... really it does. We figure that with its 5 year warranty, it will more than pay for itself
I have spent years searching for the best coffee maker. I have fallen for looks and gizmo's...all for naught. Finally, I gave up and tried a no frills, no computer chip, no clock etc model. The Moccamaster is the best, most reliable pot that I have found. I love it. Great coffe with simplicity, nothing to do but brew delicious coffee. Bravo Technivorm for the Moccamaster
I was lucky enough to buy this coffeemaker at a bargain price through the manufacturer when it was first introduced in the U.S. some years ago. It has never failed to make wonderful coffee at the perfect temperature, thanks to its copper "plumbing". You must preheat the carafe prior to brewing for best results.
WELL worth the price! I actually exchanged it one day for a coffee maker with a bean grinder in it. The next day I went straight back to my Sur La Table and asked for my old mocca master back. Its incredible. Makes the absolute best tasting coffee ver. If you care about what your coffee tastes like, then you need this machine
Excellent no frills drip coffeemaker that ensures the correct water temperature for brewing coffee. Furthermore the boiler bring the water to the brewing temperature so fast that your pot of coffee is ready 5-6 minutes. Love this piece of equipment
I do enjoy a hot cup of smooth, not bitter, coffee every morning with this coffee maker. You can taste the nuances of the beans similar to the essences of drinking and enjoying fine wine. I drink decaf, but enjoy the Whole Foods Decaffeinated French Roast which is roasted in house. With the burr grinder which I use daily, and filtered water, I love the coffee. The downside is that the capacity of the pot is small, only 40 oz. So for a crowd, I brew two pots and use a thermal carafe for serving. The second downside is the price, but I'm hoping to use the machine for many years. Okay, so maybe I should have rated it 4 1/2 stars!!
The basket placement is very finicky. The basket must be placed "painfully correct" or the coffee won't drain into the carafe. Instead Overflows the filter and spills out onto the counter. Then you are trying to clean boiling hot water and coffee grounds everywhere. Messy and dangerous. Not for me when I'm sleepy and NEED my coffee.
We had this coffee pot for 3 months. It does make exceptionally good coffee. The modular design is a problem in my opinion. The basket placement is very finicky. If the basket is not placed ""just so"" it won't drain the coffee into the carafe and instead it erupts all over the pot and counter. We had this happen 4-5 times in 3 months despite being aware of the issue and very attentive when putting the system together. When the basket won't drain, it is left full of almost boiling hot water and coffee grounds. Those of us willing to spend this much on our coffee pot, take our morning coffee seriously and the overwhelming urge to make a new pot can override the common sense to not move a precarious contraption full of boiling coffee. After a 2nd degree burn on my husband's hand, we are returning the product and will be looking for something else. Sur La Table of course handled it wonderfully but I would never buy or recommend this product to anyone
Everyone in my family in Europe has the glass version of the Mochamaster and have had theirs for years and years. My husband buys me this one and not only does it not make full flavored coffee (probably because the water runs through the coffee beans too fast) but it broke after 1 month. The little white rubber button got stuck after it flooded itself. Really annoyed.
highly rated on numerous lists, Cooks Illustrated, Americas Test Kitchen, Good Housekeeping. The Americas Test Kitchen video explains why it is superior (water heated to the right temperature, stays in the grounds the ideal length of time, and the machine itself is simply constructed). It seemed worth the extra $ for superior coffee!
I love this coffee maker. I have used them for years, and the coffee literally tastes better than coffee made with other coffee makers that I have owned/used. It lacks other bells & whistles, but if you love good coffee...it's a winner.
Best Answer:No, it does not. Although, I am not convinced that Illy's ground coffee is bad, the dark roast was actually pretty delicious. We have a grinder and it is a bit of an extra effort that I am not sure is necessary. Just my opinion though, I also want to add that I am a latte drinker and always have milk with my coffee.
The TV neither grills nor grinds beans. It seems a little pricey, and I've discarded three unnecessary plastic pieces that just confused, but the coffee is superb. The thermal carafe keeps additional cups warm and prevents the heat induced acidosis we get with most other coffee makers. Yeah, I'd buy another!
No it does not. If you want fresh ground coffee beans you will need to get a coffee grinder, however once ground it does make the best drip coffee I have ever had. The insulated thermos also can keep your coffee hot for around 5 hours once brewed.
Technivorm® Moccamaster Coffee Maker with Thermal Carafe, Polished Silver
Bonavita® 8-Cup Coffee Maker with Thermal Carafe
Best Answer:Hi Hannah, The Bonavita 8 cup thermal coffee maker does not have a programable feature...but it really makes great coffee! I just get it ready before I go to bed and all my husband has to do in the a.m. Is push the "on" button and in truly just about 3 minutes it is ready! The glass lined thermal carafe keeps the coffee super hot for several hours without changing the taste. I'm picky about coffee and this one is fantastic!!!
No you cannot set a coffee alarm with this. It is very basic. It makes coffee and does not keep the coffee warm. You have to get the version with the glass carafe if you want the hot plate. I regret not getting that one.
The unit doesn't have its own built in timer, but it could easily be used with an external timer. We haven't found the need to do this as the brewing cycle is very quick, and we have hot coffee in 2-3 minutes every morning. It is a great coffee maker ( the best we've ever owned) Coffee is delicious every morning
There is no automatic timer to set an alarm on the Bonavita 8-cup maker. I prepare the desired amount the night before, press the "on" button in the AM and it takes only 5-7 minutes! (has auto shut-off) Makes the best coffee! Very pleased.
