The Technivorm Moccamaster KBG 741 Coffee Brewer is one of the most innovative coffee brewers that Technivorm has ever released and with features like an auto-drip brew basket, quick water filtration, illuminated clock, illuminated on/off switch, precise brewing temperature control, two-stage carafe hotplate that prevents cooking your brewed coffee, automatic shut off feature and visible descaling notification the KBG is a great fit for any home and is now available in a multitude of colors to suit your tastes! This model is finished with an exciting metallic red color.
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 KBG maintains a brewing temperature between 198 and 205 degrees. The dual-phase hot plate holds the brewed coffee between 176 and 185 degrees in the glass carafe. 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 KBG employs a special hot plate designed to avoid overcooking brewed coffee. Instead of using nearly the full power of the heating element, as do lower-end brands, the KBG switches at your discretion between 65 Watts and 48 Watts of power. The hot plate also switches off periodically. 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 KBG is its specially designed high-power copper heating element. View the video on 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 Moccamaster KBG 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's automatic drip stop should be regularly checked for coffee particle buildup. The glass carafe is not dishwasher safe but rinses and cleans easily.
Every other part of the Technivorm Moccamaster KBG 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 by powering down the heating element when all water is depleted from the tank.
Each Technivorm Moccamaster KBG Coffee Brewer is hand made 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.

I love this machine. Its sleek and stylish and makes the best cup of coffee I have had at home. 6 minutes from when you push the button until you have a full pot. A bit pricey but we have spent more on cheap coffee makers then what we paid for this one that comes with a 5 year warranty..Also the customer service was outstanding!!!!!
Very well packaged and arrived in two days. Machine is excellent. Support at Hufford was very polite. Unfortunately they did not know that the machine was tested before delivery by Technivorm. I feel they should know this.
Not JLH's fault! Technivorm must be taking it on the chin with this one. First TWO units I received were both damaged in exactly the same way. JLH took my advice and shipped third after altering Technivorm's packaging. Third arrived fine. Have now seen numerous reports online sighting the same problem - broken plastic. We know why! Thanks to JLH for taking the time to correct Technivorm's problem! Oh yeah...excellent little coffee maker!!
We've had this brewer for a couple of weeks now and I have no complaints. We had been using a Keurig (awful but convenient) for a couple of years and I just couldn't take the weak coffee and the smell of melting plastic, for another day. I was afraid that going back to a drip brewer would take a lot of time but the Mocamaster is quite fast and the coffee is delicious and hot. I really like the feature that allows you to lower the temperature of the burner plate. This way the second half of the pot doesn't get burnt.
