Coffee, being the most popular morning drink in the world, attributes to the fact that there is an increased awareness on the importance of taking coffee other than to relax and to keep one awake and active for the day’s work. Other benefits of drinking coffee include helping with depression, a source of energy for athletes, a great antioxidant and lowers the risk of getting diseases like Liver cirrhosis, Parkinson’s symptoms, type 2 diabetes, and multiple sclerosis.
It’s one thing to drink coffee it’s another to have a great cup of coffee. With thousands of coffee machine manufacturers on the market, people often try a lot of coffee makers before getting one that suits their need (some don’t usually find). Aside from getting a coffee maker that’s durable, easy to use and quick in making coffee, we also need a brewer machine that produces coffee with great taste.
The Technivorm Moccamaster K model is a coffee maker you should check out because it brews excellent coffee and has tons of great features which will be discussed in this review.
Measuring 13.4 inches tall by 12.6 inches wide by 6.7 inches deep, making it easy to fit into cabinets and also to carry with you on vacation or camping. It has a flat cover on its trapezoidal water tank which is easy to remove, and below the cover is a wide mouth which allows easy pouring of water critical for those times when you’re not fully in control.
The Technivorm Moccamaster model k coffee Brewer is handmade and individually tested in the Netherlands. The parts of the coffee machine are specifically chosen for excellent performance. The strong frame, made from aluminium is durable and can be cleaned easily. All plastics used are BPA, BPS, BPF, and Phthalate free and are specially crafted from excessive-density plastic.
Its spray arm and brew basket are completely removable (and easily replaceable), which has the advantage of not allowing parts to build up residue. The glass carafe should not be washed using a dishwasher due to its delicate nature, but it can be cleaned using a quick rinse without problems.
Copper Boiling Element
A good coffee maker should be able to function at high brewing temperatures, the Technivorm Moccamaster K has a copper boiling element that rapidly heats water to a controlled brewing temperature between 196 – 205 degree Fahrenheit to make sure the coffee is not burnt and properly extracted from the ground beans, it automatically switches off when the reservoir is empty.
The element has also been designed in such way that the brewing process is now appreciably quieter than most other coffee makers on the market.
Glass Carafe with Cycling Warm Plate
The Technivorm Moccamaster K comes with a 1.25L glass carafe that employs a special warm plate designed to keep your coffee from overheating. The plate automatically shuts off after brewing for 100 minutes. Though some will argue that a thermal carafe retains sensitive aroma, the warm plates in this model allow the coffee to stay hot, thus preserving its aroma.
The cone-shaped brew basket allows an ideal water saturation time (4-6 minutes) to preserve the coffee’s flavour and aroma. It uses a Pre-immersion drip style system produced by a precise natural pulse action that produces the perfect coffee.
Ease of Operation
The Moccamaster is relatively simple and easy to use when compared with other coffee brewers. All you need to do is fill the reservoir with cool water, place a filter in the brew basket, add the appropriate amount of coffee and switch the power switch to the “On” position. The bubble- filled brewing process begins and completes in 4-6 minutes producing a perfect cup of coffee. The machine also has the ability to keep coffee warm for 6 hours.
