Technivorm Moccamaster KBT741

Many people may not realize that the Dutch manufactured Technivorm Moccamaster KBT741 can be one of the best buys you ever make as far as coffee makers are concerned. As a devoted coffee lover I know that the coffee maker is just as important as the type of coffee that I am buying. This is why I took my time checking out a variety of coffee makers before finally purchasing the Technivorm Moccamaster KBT741.

This unique and easy to use coffee maker is the best coffee maker that I have ever owned and I enjoy its simplicity and streamlined style. The Technivorm Moccamaster brews coffee at the recommended optimum temperature of 200F. This is a feature that true coffee lovers can certainly appreciate. In fact this is one of the few automatic drip appliances that has a certification from the Specialty Coffee Association of America that attests to its brewing prowess.

Good Points
The coffee that I am able to brew is rich, intense and extremely flavorful. So many of the newer coffee makers seem to have a multitude of switches, dials and levers but the Technivorm Moccamaster has a nice, neat appearance with easy to understand controls that makes the brewing process a simple and easy to understand task. This little Dutch wonder has an 8 cup capacity and a uniquely different design which was the first thing that caught my eye when I was shopping for a new coffee maker.

Even better, this little appliance actually adds an element of fun when you create a fresh cup of coffee. It features an easy to fill reservoir, a very fast brewing time and a sleek, thermal carafe to hold your coffee.

Negative Features
As far as the drawbacks are concerned I would say that I do miss having a programmable timer sometimes. The Technivorm Moccamaster KBT741 lacks this feature and it also lacks an automatic shutoff. The cost is rather steep at $300, but this is still a small price to pay for a great coffee drinking experience.

I have only owned my Technivorm Moccamaster KBT741 for about 6 months but it has rapidly become my favorite coffee maker of all time. Sure I had to pay a little more for this particular product but I am paying money for a quality product that will last me for many years. The way I look at it this is an investment that will provide me with flavor filled dividends of satisfying cups of coffee to enjoy and share. This countertop appliance suits my personal taste and satisfies my personal need to create that perfect, aromatic cup of coffee whenever I choose.
