The best home brewer in the world
Many renowned coffee experts consider the Moccamaster line of coffee brewers to simply be the best available. Here's why:
Heats water to the proper temperature of 92 – 94 degrees Celsius (198 - 204 ˚F) and keeps it consistent through the whole brew cycle, ensuring proper flavour extraction from your coffee grounds.
The Moccamaster's brew cycle finishes in about six minutes. That's much shorter than other brewers, and better for your coffee.
Quality of build is extremely important when it comes to your coffee brewer. Each unit is hand-built and tested by ethically treated, well paid and knowledgeable people in The Netherlands, meeting the very highest quality standards. They are imported directly by Transcend Coffee, as we are the Canadian distributor for Technivorm Moccamasters. These machines are incredibly solid, well put-together, and and easy to use. They come with a standard 5-year warranty and will brew your coffee consistently for years and years to come. In fact, some European customers are still using the Moccamaster brewer they purchased over 20 years ago!
This item qualifies for free shipping anywhere in Canada.
The Technivorm Moccamaster KBG AO meets the very strict requirements of both the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) and the Specialty Coffee Association of Europe (SCAE) for coffee brewing quality. This is†something very few coffee makers can claim.
“After brewing gallons of coffee, we had a winner (The Technivorm Moccamaster). It’s utterly consistent: During every cycle, it hit the ideal temperature zone for the optimal length of time, which explains why its coffee was always smooth and full-flavored."
-Cook’s Illustrated - Read the article or watch the video review.
“The Technivorm KB741 coffee maker has a cult following, not least because water is brought to a boil so that grounds steep at an ideal 200 degrees.”
-New York Times
“The (Technivorm) KB 741 was the most powerful of the seven coffeemakers I tried, at 1475 watts. It produced a delicious, superbly balanced cup—the kind I’d want to start my day with. It was also the fastest, producing eight cups in about five minutes."
-Sam Gugino, Wine Spectator
“Handmade in Holland, the Moccamaster coffee machine is beautifully engineered. It maintains optimal temperature (precisely 200 ˚F) throughout its brewing cycle for a difference you’ll taste in your morning cup.”
"How did the coffee (from the Technivorm KBT741) taste? It was hot, sparkling and perfectly extracted."
-Colin Newell at CoffeeCrew.com read the in depth review

In a world of clunky, soulless, pedestrian coffee makers the Moccamaster stands out.
It brews a hot, flavourful cup of coffee in very little time time and it looks great on the countertop.
It is easy to use and clean.
It arrived quickly and was ready to use out of the box.

Brews an excellent cup of hot coffee. Fast brew cycle and easy to use. Coffee stays very hot on the heating plate and flavour is still fantastic! We are extremely happy with our Moccamaster and have already recommended it to friends.

This machine makes great coffee and is very fast. I have two small quibbles: I find it hard to seat the basket properly and have had two spills as a result. Also, there is not much clearance for the pot, meaning it scrapes a bit on the pad. Otherwise great and I have recommended it to others. Best regards. Lois

I am liking what I see. It took a little experimentation before we had the right strength for our tastes..... but all is perfect now.
