The Technivorm Moccamaster takes lesser coffee makers to school
Hi guys, this is Brian Bennett for c/net.
And right now we're taking a first look at the TechniVorm MoccaMaster KVT741.
Now, if you know anything about coffee, or have a friend who is seriously in to the black gold.
And probably heard of TechniVorm.
It is a coffee maker that is based in the Netherlands.
And has a very high reputation for making extremely good drip machines.
And this drip machine is a beautiful looking device.
If you look at it, it has lots of metal, lots of glass in addition to very sturdy plastic.
The Mocah Master has very large pieces that are easy to remove and replace, which makes everything.
Very easy to operate and very easy to clean by hand.
Powering the Mocha Master is a very powerful heating element.
The whole idea here is to heat up it's water to 200 degrees or higher which enables a very delicious brew and extracts all of the.
Flavorful and desirable components out of the coffee grounds.
Now the mocha master brews very good drip coffee in some cases outstandingly coffee depending on what kinds of beans ou used.
You also get this thermal craft which keeps the brew hot for 4, 5, or even 6 hours.
That's something that's a very nice ability to have in your home coffeemaker.
To put coffee in the machine, you essentially open the brew lid here.
Use a type 4 filter that's paper or, you can even use a permanent cold filter.
Put everything in there.
Close it up.
And, on this side of the machine is the water reservoir.
As you can see, it's clear and you just put the water in.
It has very clear labels on the front and as a matter of fact, you even see bubbles floating up through the center, which is a very nifty and cool little effect.
You're going to pay a lot for the Moccamaster.
It costs $299, which is a lot of money to spend for a drip machine.
That is one major drawback.
The other one is that it's tall, it has a lot of empty space in here but it's definitely going to take up a lot of kitchen counter space.
So that's something you're going to want to think about.
So there you have it folks.
We just took a first look at the Moccamaster KBT741 by Technivorm.
It's a lovely machine that brews excellent coffee.
But it costs quite a bit of money.
