Technivorm coffee makers were the first to be certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) to conform to strict industry standards for proper coffee extraction, and they continue to be the highest regarded coffee brewers in the coffee enthusiast community. The unique copper heating element of the Technivorm K brewer maintains a brewing temperature between 198 and 205 degrees. The glass carafe holds the brewed coffee between 176 and 185 degrees. Brewing is completed within 5 to 6 minutes. Simple water pathways ensure your water and coffee touch as few materials as possible to protect the delicate aromas. The cone-shaped filter and 9-hole water spray head encourage even extraction.
While most coffee experts will agree that a thermal carafe coffee maker is best at preserving the delicate aromas, the Technivorm K employs a special cycling hot plate designed to avoid overcooking brewed coffee in its 10-cup (European 4 ounce) glass carafe. Instead of using nearly the full power of the heating element, as do lower-end brands, the K hot plate switches periodically between 65 Watts and no power. This increases the time which brewed coffee stays hot without turning the bottom of the pot into sludge. The hot plate automatically shuts off 100 minutes after brewing.
The driving force behind the stable brewing temperatures on the Technivorm K is its specially designed high-power copper heating element. View the video in the Product Demos tab to see what we mean by a unique design. Temperatures are very stable from start to finish, which is critical for proper coffee extraction. After testing our first Technivorm, we have confirmed reports that it is significantly quieter than traditional automatic drip coffee makers. This is owed to the high-quality materials used.
Technivorm designed the K to be simple to clean so that parts do not build up residue that alters the taste of brewed coffee. Both the spray arm and brew basket are fully removable. The brew basket intentionally does not have an automatic drip stop, to prevent this kind of buildup in either the stopper or the carafe lid. The glass carafe is NOT dishwasher safe, but rinses and cleans easily.
Every other part of the Technivorm Moccamaster K Coffee Brewer is chosen for quality and also a purpose. The solid aluminum body lasts a lifetime. The BPA-Free water tank is made from high-density plastic. The 9-Hole water spray head is chrome-plated copper. The Auto-Safety Shut-Off protects the coffee maker: it shuts off when all water is depleted from the tank and the hot plate shuts off after 100 minutes.
Each Technivorm K Matte Silver Coffee Brewer is handmade and individually tested in the Netherlands. Rigorous quality standards ensure the highest customer satisfaction rate in the industry. Enjoy peace of mind that your Technivorm coffee brewer is built not only by skilled artisans but also by true coffee enthusiasts with a passion for delivering the most esteemed drip coffee brewers to homes around the world.

Moccamaster brewers are designed to last a lifetime, so regularly cleaning and descaling keeps your brewer in great shape for many years. Moccamaster recommends the use of Urnex brand cleaners as other brands may harm the copper boiling element and result in a metallic taste in your beverages. They also do not recommend the use of vinegar as it will not sufficiently descale the brewer. Moccamaster recommends you clean your brewers every 100 brew cycles.
Thanks to the incredible build quality of Technivorm Moccamaster Coffee Brewers, every single unit is offered with a 5 Year Parts and Labor Warranty for household use only. This warranty is limited to defects and workmanship, and has general exclusions for improper use, lack of maintenance such as descaling, and catastrophe.
My wife is a coffeeaholic. We have been through 3 coffee makers in 6 years or so. I finally had it and bought this machine. Thus far, she is thrilled with the quality of craftsmanship and more importantly, the taste of the coffee.
outstanding machine, had a keurig for that now translates to novelty coffee, keurig and other makers do not come close to this machine, its quick, the temp is perfect, unobtrusive, not like a keurig for space taking and other drip makers...I use distilled water, what a huge difference that makes, if you like coffee try this machine with distilled water, and grind your coffee beans...its well worth it
