[Amazon.ca] Moccamaster 59691 10-Cup Coffee Brewer with Glass Carafe, Brushed Silver $355.76

First time post, long time follower. I thought this was a decent deal for those looking for a quality SCA approved coffee maker. Enjoy or rip my drip. Lowest was $325 but this isn't too far off

Would Wayfair price match this? Since they have more colours options it would be nice to select something that really stands out in your kitchen.

Really don't like the versions with the hot plate, I would advise anyone to get the stainless steel carafe version without a hot plate.

If you're spending this much money on a coffee maker, it's really a waste if you're just going to spoil it with a hot plate afterwards.

I have the older stainless steel carafe version and while the construction of the internals of the coffee maker are great.. the majority of the exterior pieces are cheap plastic.

Why wouldn't you want a hot plate? Literally the best for grabbing a coffee 30mins after it's brewed before it gets lukewarm.

Does the hot plate end up burning the coffee? Which coffee maker would you recommend otherwise? Right now I have a bonavita.

Hot plates continue to heat the coffee, which impacts the flavor negatively. If you’re spending this much on a drip machine for drip coffee that tastes good, don’t ruin it by scalding it on a hot plate.

Well Moccamaster make exceptional coffee makers so any of the versions without a hot plate would be a good investment. The KBT or KBGT are both excellent choices and have pretty good thermal carafes. Consequence summed up the downside of a hot plate pretty well.

That being said.. Bonavita coffee makers are also very good. Unless there is something wrong with yours, I don't think it's worth upgrading to a Moccamaster unless you're not happy with something about your current coffee maker.

If you are unhappy with the Bonavita, Moccamaster may not be a good choice either since they both have similar ways of brewing with the shower-style head.

See Consequence's post above. Hot plates ruin the taste of your coffee. A thermal carafe will do a decent job of keeping your coffee warm for 30 minutes without changing the taste. If you're using a $350 coffee maker, you're likely using expensive, premium coffee as well so you don't want to ruin it with a hotplate. Otherwise, there is no point in buying premium coffee and a $350 coffee maker.

There is nothing wrong with the glass carafe, it's the hotplate underneath it that is the problem. If you don't use the hot plate, the glass carafe version is probably fine but the stainless steel thermal carafe is a much better choice if you're spending this much money.

The thermal carafe has problems of its own. I think with the price difference, this glass carafe on sale is a better buy.

Rushing a $350 purchase because a product is on sale right now is always a bad idea. At this price point you should do your research and purchase the coffee maker that is right for you.

I'm not saying this is the wrong coffee maker for everyone. I'm just trying to provide more information to those who are considering purchasing this.

One thing that seriously bugs me about this machine is it only has an "ON/OFF" switch. I'm all for simplicity but at this pricepoint give me something more.

At this price I would definitely go for the Breville Precision Brewer machine. But if you don't like to tinker around with your coffee making then the "ON/OFF" switch only is for you.

I have the older stainless steel carafe version and while the construction of the internals of the coffee maker are great.. the majority of the exterior pieces are cheap plastic.

Have owned both models and the stainless steel carafe was very poor and changed the taste of the coffee where the glass carafe does not impart any taste.

Also if your coffee is sitting more than 30 minutes in either it will change the taste.

After sending in 5 metal carafes for warranty I sent back the entire machine and got the glass carafe model and never looked back.

Blind taste test found around the web also choose the glass carafe because of there is no taste imparted, unlike the metal carafe models, and the surface area of the glass carafe style with the unique Technivorm lid results in a better tasting cup of coffee.

My 2 cents as taste is completely subjective but going as far as "a waste if you're just going to spoil it with a hot plate afterwards", seems rather ill informed.

- glass version is easier to clean
- glass version doesn't leach metallic taste
- but glass version is more fragile
- glass version hot plate on the lower setting actually tastes better to me after an hour than having coffee sit in a thermal carafe for an hour



And here (Seattle Coffee Gear) the tasters prefer the glass version.
