The Technivorm Moccamaster 39340 (60 fl. Oz.) is the perfect coffee maker for those who want to brew coffee for a small office, or just simply love coffee. After our last automatic drip coffee maker broke, we searched through product reviews until we found the wonderful reviews for this coffee machine. The huge capacity, ability to keep your coffee hot and the great taste were all good reasons to try this one out.
Although we can say how much we love this automatic coffee maker all day, we know you need to know the what, why, and how. So, let’s get into the details of this great machine that reviewers have fallen in love with.
The copper boiling element in this machine heats the water quickly to optimum temperatures; you will have a full and perfectly bloomed pot of coffee in just about no time after that. Once it is brewed, it is guaranteed to stay hot for at least 2 hours in the double-walled stainless-steel carafe (longer with travel lid).
The Moccamaster 39340 is fast, efficient, and made with highly durable materials that also happen to be recyclable. Although you will never want to get rid of this coffee machine, it is made to be recycled at the end of its long life so that no extra waste is created.
Along with this, it is backed by a 5-year manufacturers warranty in case anything out of the ordinary goes wrong. When cleaned and maintained properly, this machine will last as long as you need it to. Each machine has removable parts so that you can properly clean and maintain the coffee maker, or replace certain parts.
As we mentioned, the unique copper boiling elements in this automatic coffee maker will heat your water for your 60 fl. oz. carafe to optimum temperatures. This all results in great coffee solubility and flavor. These temperatures are between 196 and 205 degrees Fahrenheit, which are what the National Coffee Association agrees are the best temperatures for getting the best flavor out of your coffee grounds. This element will switch off automatically for safety and energy saving, once the water reservoir is empty.
Along with optimum temperature control, this machine uses a flat bottom brew-basket which allows the coffee to steep for 6-8 minutes. Steeping will produce ideal flavors and aroma for your beverage. You may also steep longer if you wish to have slightly stronger coffee by using the manual drip-stop feature on the brew basket.
You will have delicious coffee in about 6-8 minutes, and the brewing process is so quiet that you will be able to make coffee early in the morning without disturbing anyone.
One issue that some have experienced before brewing is that the filter for this machine is slightly difficult to use because it is awkward to get centered in the basket. However, this has not been a huge problem for many.
Proper water level markers were something that people wished the cool water reservoir had, but this specific coffee maker was made to make a full 60oz. carafe of coffee every time. It is recommended that you do so for quality purposes.
The 60oz. double-walled stainless-steel carafe is made to be durable and to keep your coffee hot. There are options to keep your coffee hot for a couple hours or up to 5-6.
The first option is to simply use the 60oz. carafe at room temperature and brew normally. Your hot beverage will stay at around 180 degrees Fahrenheit for 1-2 hours before it starts to cool slowly off. Second, you can pre-heat your stainless-steel carafe and fix the travel plug lid after brewing. This will hold your coffee at around 190 degrees Fahrenheit for 5-6 hours until the coffee starts to cool off slowly.
Moccamaster 39340: Final Thoughts
The Technivorm Moccamaster 39340 is one of the best automatic drip coffee makers out there. The machine is quiet, efficient, and makes great tasting coffee. Its large 60oz., double-walled carafe holds a great amount of coffee and keeps it nice and hot to boot (love the travel lid). Although the filter is a little awkward, we have not found that to be even close to a deal breaker with this wonderful machine.
