Technivorm Moccamaster KBG Coffee Brewer - $309.99 ($278.99 YMMV)

Deal Link:
Price:
309.99
Retailer:
Wayfair.ca
First post, and I realize it's not a deal that everyone will be interested in.

Moccamaster coffee brewers are handmade in the Netherlands, and carry a 5-year warranty. This machine is SCA and ECBC approved.

Brilliant Silver model is currently $309.99. Current price on Amazon is $403, and lowest price ever per triple dromedaries was $308.29 back in 2015.

Other colours are priced between 329.99 and 399.99.

Edit: Just checked my mail, and there was a personalized 10% offer for new customers from Wayfair. Tested checkout and this item is eligible, dropping the price to $278.99.

Big vouch, those are war machine that will survive anything. They are not your common "made to be replaced in 5 months" appliance.

What was the discount back a few months ago from Green Beanery? Technivorm used to be the only game in town as far as SCA approved drip machines. This is no longer the case. There are LOTS of less expensive SCA approved options now, so this discount feels a bit lukewarm.

40% off was in the email but I don't remember what that would have been (different model, the thermal carafe one).

Trying to debate picking one up vs trying to contact bodum to get replacement parts for my bodum bistro.

I have the KBGT 741 with thermal carafe, which I like more than this one with the glass carafe (better heat retention and don't have to worry about breakage). I think America's Test Kitchen rated this brand tops but Bonavita was their budget pick.

That review probably goes back a while when Technivorm was the king and Bonavita was the new kid on the block. There are now tons of SCA approved machines cheaper than Technivorm. Bonavita is still a good value. I had bad luck with the heating element giving out within two year on mine though. Now I'm rocking the Braun Multiserve - also SCA approved - and I do enjoy it.

Bit the bullet and bought one, thanks OP. Had a bodum bistro in the past but a few of the parts broke and they don't sell the replacement part and with it being past warranty it may cost something or take forever because of the current events . I am hoping this will last me much longer.

I had not thought about that but now have a reason to use my separate thermal carafe I suppose. I wonder if there is much of a difference in taste between the two.

Edit : I assume most people use a different filter since the technivorm ones are pricey.

I bought a permanent cone filter when I bought the coffee maker but it slowed down the process greatly and is not needed. I just buy the cone filters at Costco (600 count for around $8) and they work fine. Get some citric acid and run a dilution through it about once every month or so to keep it clean (about a heaping Tbs per carafe of water). Make sure to run 2-3 cycles of regular water after to flush out the cleaning solution.

I have this model and I can vouch for it.

While there are cheaper SCA certified brewers this one is really built to last and is user serviceable to boot.

Just a caveat, these brew hotter and medium to dark roasts tend towards overextraction But lighter roasts come out amazing.

I’ve had this exact (though older) moccamaster for 10+ years. Still going strong, and making amazing coffee. I think I paid $250 for it, and it was an astronomical price back then. But worth every penny. Broken the carafe twice though, and a $50 replacement is a bit steep. However, I prefer piping hot rather than tepid warm coffee, so am happy to have the glass carafe version.

I have tried all kinds of filters but the Moccamaster are the best followed by Melitta white. I get mine here For $8 a box of 100 https://cafune.ca/products/technivorm-m ... -4-filters (but currently out of stock).

I time my descaling to a box of filters, but I use Dezcal as it does a better job than plain citric acid. You can buy this in a 7 oz bag for around $5 on Amazon. Tabs are about a $1 each too.

Also a good idea to clean any coffee contact surface regularly (filter holder and carafe) with Cafiza. A bottle of powder lasts for ages.

Something like this has a bunch of features, so I kind of get it:

How do they compare in practice?
Both SCA certified:

I don't think you can go wrong with either of them, but Moccamaster is more of a icon on drip coffee machines I think.
huuuu! (¬'-')¬ C-('-'Q) straight!
