All drip coffee makers are the same. If you believe that then our Technivorm Moccamaster review Assumes you have never heard of the Moccamaster KBGT. This will be the first of three Technivorm Moccamaster reviews that look at how the Dutch manufacturer applies the same level of design, product innovation and manufacturing excellence that the best Italian espresso makers do. It would be fair to call Technivorm the JURA or Gaggia of coffee makers.
Technivorm Coffee Brewer Technology
For over 50 years, Technivorm has shown that you can brew
better drip coffee. The Technivorm Moccamaster 79312 KBGT actually does this in
ways that are similar to how those great espresso makers approach things.
It starts with the water heating element. The Technivorm
Moccamaster 79312 has a copper boiling element and that heats the water to
between 196- and 205-degrees Fahrenheit. Copper is a superior material for
heating elements but can be expensive and difficult to work with. Most brew
makers are some combination of aluminum or a steel alloy.
The Moccamaster KBGT then employs an unusual method to dispense
the heated water onto the coffee grounds. A small pump applies a pulsing force.
This creates “turbulence” and disrupts the ground coffee as opposed to simply
dripping. And, as a result you get TDS (total dissolved solids) of 18% to 22%
in every cup. This is similar to a top espresso maker’s pre-immersion system. According
to Technivorm, the cone shaped drip basket helps to slow the brew and delivers a
more coffee with a much more complex flavor and aroma.
The Moccamaster KBGT Carafe
The care doesn’t end there. There carafe materials are also
very high quality and have the look and feel of something you would find in a
luxury hotel suite. The heating element maintains the brewed coffee at a very
consistent, 175-185 degrees. The thermal carafe keeps your coffee very hot for
about an hour. The Moccamaster KBGT also includes a travel lid for the carafe,
this is a great feature.
Moccamaster KBGT brew-basket has an automatic drip-stop so brewing stops if you remove the carafe during the brew cycle. All Moccamaster Coffee Brewers are handmade in the Netherlands and backed by their industry-leading 5-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Technivorm Moccamaster review
We really loved the Technivorm Moccamaster 79312 KBGT. It
proves that by putting in the effort you can deliver delicious, superior quality

programming features as opposed to value and quality. We recommend the Technivorm
Moccamaster KBGT and this should be the first of several other Technivorm
