Quality Requirements of ECBC
All our coffee brewers meet the strict guidelines of the ‘European Coffee Brewer Centre’. These requirements are related to coffee brewing temperature, coffee-water saturation time and coffee holding temperature. A quote from ECBC encapsulates their guiding principle well: 'There’s no use buying a premium coffee only to destroy the results with an underperforming coffee brewer'.

All Technivorm products are handmade in the heart of the Netherlands, and certified by the specialty coffee associations of America and Europe (SCAA/SCAE) and granted the European coffee brewing center's (ECBC) seal of approval meeting their strict "golden cup" quality guidelines. The philosophy of Technivorm Moccamaster's inventor, Gerard c. Smit - to produce long-lasting, reliable, energy efficient, and recyclable products - has guided the hand-made production of every Technivorm Moccamaster, for the past 50 years, offering a sustainable choice! Technivorm Moccamaster is backed by a 5-year warranty (valid only when purchased from an authorized retailer), a knowledgeable customer service and repair technicians team, manufactured with the highest quality parts available today, and of course, where plastic is used, it's BPA free! this should be the last coffee brewer you'll ever buy, one that should last your lifetime, when cleaned and descaled properly. You may ask - "what's important when searching for that complex, clean, crisp, fully infused, flavorful cup of coffee"? certainly coffee quality, grind and formula play an important role, as does the fresh water quality, but ultimately, it's the brewing method that plays the all-important final role!
Top Customer Reviews
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...?)
So, I bit the bullet, paid a bit more and ordered this sporty red model. Out of the box it is a well made, beautiful kitchen accessory. It is so.....stylish. Everyone that sees it has to ask about it.
Here's my story:
I picked glass because I don't like stainless steel (I don't like to have to "warm" it and I think stainless imparts a funny taste).
I didn't go with the model that you can adjust the basket from open, to half-way, to closed. The reason: I don't want to "mess" around, I don't want to take chance of an overflow because someone else played with the setting. I don't want to explain the whys for the various settings. I just want to be able to brew a pot of coffee - nothing fancy.
I did exactly what the instructions said as well as advice from others.
Out of the box I ran 2 batches of plain water thru the system.
I used paper filters. (This is what Technivorm recommends-for taste reasons).
I put the water in right before brewing. I've now done both cold filtered refrigerator water & cold water from the tap with not a discernible taste difference (may end up having to de-scale more often with tap - but that will have to be seen). They recommend using "fresh" water....not water that has sat around for awhile. That is why they don't do the delay timer thing.
Some people apparently are hung up on the European coffee size.....ok folks a "cup" of coffee in the U.S. is 6 oz. In Europe its 4 oz. So, when the markings show 10 cups on the water bin.....it means a full pot of coffee is 40 oz.
I followed their recommendation and used 6 scoops (12 T of Coffee) for a full pot of coffee.
Also, this model does have auto shut-off.
The bottom line: Following exactly the above - The first pot of coffee produced was noticeably smoother than anything I've produced from my old coffee maker. I've since made several more pots to rave reviews from all my coffee drinking family. It's been so much fun producing a truly great cup of coffee that I'm actually going to go out get some high end coffee beans to grind myself. (They recommend grind right before brewing).
I highly recommend this product!
