probably spent over a thousand dollars-easily-on everything from Mr. Coffee to the aforementioned Cuisinart over the past few years). I guess I've been luck-or so I'd thought. My Cuisinart has been going strong a few years now, minus a few functions that quit working long ago. My how one can come to accept Luke warm underbrewed, caffeine-so called coffee, over time....Not worth it! Live well, now! We'll get to that soon. After recent trip to The Netherlands, I was impressed by so many things about the Dutch, besides their obvious love of life and the good things. Anyway, let's get to quality on a coffeee-maker basis. Keep it simple. Initially after returning, I missed my European coffees (whether The Netherlands, France, Italy or the U.K. Seems anyplace you go (except Starbucks, oh my...) you will find a great cup of coffee unattainable in the good ol' USofA. I initially decided I'd wait till my Cuisinart died, then I'd eventually splurge on a $300 plus drip coffee maker (even though IF your American (Chinese-made) coffee-maker breaks down every year or so there goes $500... Well, I finally said, heck with it. This is just too cool. I sprang for it and bought the thing. Initially, I was a bit put off by what I had heard in reviews and specs of this supposedly, huge "footprint". Well, it's delicate compared to FP of my old Cuisanart (what are you people talking about?). It's simply beautiful. Now let's get to the real thing. COFFEE! My first cup of coffee from my new Moccamaster was as close to being back in Europe as actually being there. No special requirements. Just poured water in and within 5 minutes, full pot (yes a European pot is slightly smaller-not an oversized American pot (enough for four or five people to enjoy fresh coffee immediately). Brewing is complete in 5 minutes tops for a full ten cups. Of course, you can remove anytime while coffee is brewing as has drip stop and pot and hot plate will "Auto shut-off" automatically in 1 1/2 hours. I did something interesting. First I sipped fresh brewed first cup. Hot. I mean super-no-SUPER, hot! Very tasty. So glad I didn't wait for my old Cuisinart to finally give up (I'd be missing out on a lot) taste, temperature, style (who cares about style-it's the quality of the cup that matters)...but this is super nice....anyway, back to my experiment. After enjoying the best cup of coffee since my recent trip to The Netherlands and Venice, I turned off machine immediately (upon pouring first cup) after letting set (totally off) about 30 minutes I poured another cup. Surprisingly Perfect temperature. (Hotter than my "Chinese wonder" at hot plate temp...hmmm? Taste? Unsurpassed! I'm really blown away. Then poured another cup an hour later. Again with hot plate and machine completely off (just for the heck of it). Warm, but still tasty. I'm so glad I didn't wait for my trusty (Chinese-slave labor) Cuisinart to die. It's already been cleaned up and will be given to charity thrift shop. Also, I want to note, most of the so-called extra features on my Cuisinart were broken or did not function at all (so the old Cuisinart had actually been dying a slow death all along). Most functions-auto turn on, small batch settings, etc. all kaput! So it basically warms water and pretends to make coffee for unsuspecting Americans. (I do have to give the Germans credit) the carafe is made in Germany, the rest of this monster is made in China. I truly, did not know what I was misssing....so happy I made the plunge. I guess it took a trip to Europe to realize I am not really drinking coffee. I've been drinking America's "version" of coffee...I highly recommend the Moccamaster KBG741.... Just a couple notes if your new to European design. First, Beautiful! Second, yes the careffe is smaller (this is not a big ugly America pot. Still ample size for a few large mugs of coffee. Perfect size and less than 5 minutes till next pot...It's a Dutch pot (seems slightly more fragile than heartier competitors) but nice feel. No dripage unless you try to pour too fast, other than that comparable to other carafes and plenty of room for a pot of coffee for one to four or five people. It's stylish! A work of art! Solid, heavy duty. Only "plastic" on actual coffee maker is the cold water vessel (internal all copper coil) and what plastic there is-is all very thick. Not cheaply made at all. Note cone is also plastic, but so is every other coffee maker out there (even your $5000. Espresso machines) plastic is not the devil people. The footprint appears more delicate and less of a footprint than my old behemoth, Cuisinart. Initially, this held me back from purchasing, as I heard this MoccaMaster takes up so much counter space. NOT TRUE. I'd say actually much less, than my old monster China made model. Also the MoccaMaster is HANDMADE inThe Netherlands (where cool people live and work) and is not made by Chinese slaves. Comes with a 5 Year Warranty! Best in the business. So happy I made this purchase! NO pretense-just great coffee. I can't wait to find a comparable espresso machine. Maybe next year. I had to get orange in honor of Kings-Day ya know! Love The Netherlands and this company.
UPDATE: I know I was really excited when I first received my MoccaMaster so I thought I'd check back in with a more objective review. Let's face it, hardly anything is perfect; so here's a summation of my experience having used the Moccamaster after a few weeks of daily use.
1) the first few brewing the coffee seemed to have a somewhat "plastic" taste. I was brewing Starbucks Italian, so thought it could just be the beans (although they are generally pretty good). GOOD NEWS! After a few brewings, possibly as many as 14, the coffee all off sudden just seems to remind me of those days in Europe! 😊 Same coffee as used in my old Cuisinart-now- just full flavored. Unbelievable a coffee maker can make such a difference. All of a sudden I realized I was drinking coffee just like I'd savoured in Amsterdam! I was really relieved that the "plastic" taste lasted only a short while. Also, I must admit, I never read the instructions, washed or rinsed the machine before using.
2) the carafe. The Technivorm carafe does seem more fragile than others. The handle and glass seems thinner than it's rivals and while I cannot confirm, perhaps more prone to bumping against something and breaking. Nice thing here is, it's much lighter and elegant than others. Really nice.
3) If you pour too fast, you will get a little dripage (something my Cuisinart never did). That noted. Pouring at a normal rate one experiences absolutely no dripage whatsoever. One of my old "Mr. Coffees" had a terrible dripage problem. You won't find that with the Moccamaster.
4) the plastic tabs...hmmm. I have experienced absolutely no problems with the two little tabs that lock in the cone filter system, however, they look so fragile! I guess no harm, no foul! So as long as I use normally hopefully this won't be a problem and doesn't appear to be at all. Still, I wish these just LOOKED a little more stealth.
5) Cleanabilty. Easy to clean. Almost effortless.
6) Lack of "beeps" and signals! Yep, that's it. The coffee brews perfectly in less than 5 minutes. A perfect cup waiting. Steaming hot! There is no "beep" that lets you know coffe is ready. Alls it takes so is a quick look at the pot. Okay it's full. Happens very quickly. Also remember the pot shuts off after 1 1/2 hours. Again no beep. This is total common sense-plus lets face it don't you already have enough "beeps" in your life? I know I do! There is a light indicator on switch that lets you know it's on and the plug is extra long and heavy duty (which I really like) with. 3 prong grounded plug. Coiled up nicely behind pot since I don't require the length.
After using everyday for the past few weeks, here's my FINAL SCORE:
Design - 9
Functionality - 10
Coffee Infusion - 10
User Friendly - 10
Something I'd be proud of on my countertop? RESOUNDING YES! - 10
Quality of Contruction - 9
Warranty - 10
That's my final word on the Moccamaster KBG 741
Bottom line: I love everything about it. Particularly, the way it brews coffee. Superb!
Our old Braun (made in Germany), auto drip coffeemaker finally died after 30! years... and so began the search for a replacement. I usually prefer to take the time to make coffee with press pot, vac pot, or Eva Solo - all of which can produce great tasting coffee from fresh-ground good quality beans. My wife, however, has an early commute and prefers the convenience of auto drip. Amazingly, the Technivorm is an auto drip machine which makes great tasting coffee every bit comparable to the manual methods.
We considered the Bonavita, which, like the Technivorm, appears to be the only other machine tested/certified for ("really does make all the difference") brewing temperature consistency. Initially, the Bonavita seemed to have a bit smaller/better shaped countertop footprint and was around $100 less expensive, while the Technivorm appeared to be a bit clunky to use with all the must-move-or-remove separate parts (water reservoir cover, filter basket, basket top, drip arm).
For us, what clinched the deal clearly in favor of Technivorm is their use of copper (just like the pipes in most homes) heating element vs. aluminum in the case of the Bonavita. Having ditched our aluminum cookware years ago, in favor of healthier stainless steel, we did not want to make coffee multiple times a day using a machine with an aluminum thermoblock... particularly given that some water remains in the system between uses in the case of both machines.
Other choices - which Technivorm?
1) Glass pot vs. Thermal Carafe -
We prefer the "how much coffee is left" visual convenience and ease of cleaning with the glass pot Technivorm. The purists will warn about continued-cooking effects of the hot plate/glass pot system vs. thermal carafe... however as other reviewers note, the "10 cup" pot is a smallish European-sized, so we rarely have much coffee sitting on the hot plate for long. Plus, it is nice for the last cup to be hot rather than merely warm (note that to minimize additional cooking of the coffee, you can adjust the hot plate wattage high/low with the rightmost switch... we leave ours on low and it keeps the pot-minus-first-cup-or-two plenty hot.)
Also note that the thermal carafe system has an interlock switch, requiring that the carafe must be tight up against the coffee machine for it to brew... this seemed a bit over the top, running the risk of early morning surprise, as in ...OMG no coffee! who bumped the carafe?
2) Newer "Automatic No-Drip" vs. Prior "Drip Switch" Filter Basket -
If you've dug into the online research you may have noticed that some of the Technivorm pictures show a 3 position lever on a filter basket with round base, while others show a filter basket with a rectangular base and no lever. As far as we could tell you can still buy both versions.
The theory behind the lever (which has positions to turn the drip off, halfway, or full flow) is that you leave the drip off for a minute to fill the filter basket with water and thereby completely saturate the coffee grounds, then flip it to halfway if brewing a small amount of coffee, or to full if brewing a whole pot. You can also flip the lever to off when you want a cup of coffee before brewing has finished. The other, newer filter basket is like a conventional coffee machine... with an automatic mechanism to stop the drip flow when you pull the coffee pot out.
Not wanting to mess around with turning the drip off and on (...OMG no coffee! who forgot to flip the lever? or worse... why is there coffee overflowing everywhere!), we chose to get the newer rectangular filter basket version and give up the theoretical advantages of saturating the grounds or optimizing half-a-pot flow rates. We're really glad we went this way... in practice the machine operates so fast that very little coffee drips through to the pot before the grounds are saturated, and given the small European pot size, it will be a rare event for us to make a half pot (most American households will probably make a couple of pots each morning.)
So far, after brewing many dozens of pots, we have only a few minor cautionary observations -
(A) seems advisable to load the filter and coffee into the filter basket by first removing the basket from its cantilevered plastic perch over the pot... to avoid pressing down on the perch and perhaps breaking it. This is no big deal, but does require paying a bit of attention when you put the filter basket back on, as it needs to match up with a couple of hooks at the inner end.
(B) the Technivorm is not the most guest-friendly coffeemaker... you will need to briefly show the "Mr. Coffee" folks how to use it and familiarize them with some of the nuances (like the filter basket hooks)... but this can actually be entertaining, as watching the swirling bubbles/water (that almost immediately rise up through the clear water tube) is surprisingly mesmerizing to the pre-coffee'd mind in the morning.
(C) being handbuilt in Europe (if you search the 3rd party reviews you can actually find an online video of the factory showing careful Dutch people hard at work making your machine) the Technivorm has one mostly-charming quirk... typical countertop appliances these days have a short power cord and/or under-machine storage spool for excess length... not so with Techivorm. This baby comes with a longish power cord, seemingly thick enough to handle, say... your stove or a plug-in hybrid car. So, you will need a bit of room behind the machine for the cord. But the good news here, is that the sideways layout of the machine gives it an equally unusual small front to back depth, so there is room for the mother of all power cords.
Overall, the Technivorm indeed seems to be the best auto drip coffee maker that you can buy in the USA - if you ever taste the difference between a typical coffeemaker and one that consistently holds the critical just-beneath-boiling temperature, you may not be able to go back. Assuming good beans, controlled/sufficiently high temperature is the key to great coffee... it's not rocket science but only Technivorm and Bonavita do it, as far as I can tell from reading a lot of third party reviews.
Parting thought... first thing in the morning, it's actually wonderfully refreshing to use a machine that is elegantly mechanical in that old-school form-follows-function way, and that has just two simple switches, on/off and high/low ...with... wait for it... simple red lights! to show if they're on ...and NOTHING ELSE.
All in all, this is a stark contrast to "interacting" with a microprocessor-controlled, back-lit LCD displayed, high knobs-to-dollar ratio, fourteen function, how-DO-I-set-the-time, yet-another computing device thingy - all before your first cup of coffee ;-)
(but... what if Siri could make great coffee...?)
Can even make a single cup (large) of delicious coffee in a couple of minutes.
