Technivorm Moccamaster

Manual methods are coveted for making the best coffee, but auto-drip has its perks, especially when brewed up by a Technivorm Moccamaster KBG 741 coffee machine. Fill its clear reservoir with water, pop in a Type 4 paper filter and some grounds on top, then set it to work. It’ll brew up a carafe of 10 cups in six minutes and does so with obsessive temperature controls in place (with temps at a consistent 196 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit), a nine-hole spray arm to evenly soak and disperse the water over the grind, and a build made of entirely replaceable parts on the off chance something gives out. It’s also not half bad to look at and comes in over a dozen color options if plain brushed silver won’t do.
