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 KBT maintains a brewing temperature between 198 and 205 degrees. The stainless steel thermal 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.
The driving force behind the stable brewing temperatures on the Technivorm KBT 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 KBT 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 stopper can be manually closed, or set to half-open for small batches of coffee. The stainless steel carafe is not dishwasher safe, but rinses and cleans easily.
Every other part of the Technivorm Moccamaster KBT Coffee Brewer is chosen for quality and also a purpose. The solid aluminum body lasts a lifetime. The 10-cup (European 4 ounce) stainless steel thermal carafe does not experience the failings of the more common thermal carafes. The BPA-Free water tank is made from high-density plastic. The 9-Hole water spray head is chrome-plated copper. The Dual Auto-Safety Shut-Off protects the coffee maker: it shuts off when all water is depleted from the tank or if the thermal carafe is removed from the brewing position.

I gave this as a gift. I was told they really like the looks and slim style of this brewer. The insulated decanter is warmer to the touch than their other one. They haven't let the coffee set in the decanter long enough to see how hot it stays. They also manually turn off the power button because this one doesn't do it automatically. It makes a good brew and so they are pleased with the product.
