Now it’s time to taste. I imagine El Exigente – The Demanding One – in the room as the brew is poured. When he sat down to taste a cup of Colombian coffee, the villagers expectantly awaited his verdict. If he smiled, everyone rejoiced.

My first cup was made using Dunkin’ Donuts medium-roast coffee, original blend, something that lesser brewers tend to do a mediocre job with. The resultant cup of coffee would have made El Exigente smile. It was without bitterness and, even after sitting in the carafe with the burner on for 90 minutes, exhibited no trace of burnt taste.

I then moved on to one of my favorites, Lavazza Kilimanjaro. The result was a cup of coffee that was exceptionally smooth and crisp, with some fruity notes, and a texture that one could best describe as velvety.

In both cases, brewing a full pot took about six minutes, which is ideal for the beverage.

Finally, cleaning the Moccamaster is a breeze, it just requires rinsing off in the sink. The company strongly advises against the use of a dishwasher for any of the brewer’s parts.


The combination of elegant design, ease of use, the fun of watching the brewing process, and great tasting coffee makes for an unbeatable combination and the Technivorm Moccamaster KBG-741 should, in my opinion, be put it on everyone’s short list when looking at good coffee makers.
