Moccamaster Red

The Moccamaster is one of the SCAA (Specialty Coffee Association of America) approved coffee maker that you can trust to make you the best coffee at the exact right temperature with the best flavor. When I came across Technivorm’s Moccamaster coffee makers, I was surprised to see a large number of models available. I immediately felt overwhelmed by the available choices, which has led me to research and write this post.

Common Questions about Moccamaster Coffee Brewer:

– What Does Auto Drip-stop or Manual Drip-stop Mean?

When the brewer is done filling up the coffee pot with a fresh brew, as you move the pot, some coffee still remains in the spout or brew basket that continues to drip. A drip-stop feature is used to stop this dripping. When you go with a manual drip-stop, you have to flick a switch before you remove your carafe to stop any dripping, when you use an auto drip-stop, this is done automatically. On the manual option, it also allows you to control how long your coffee steeps before it goes down to the carafe, but if not watched correctly, it could overflow.

– Is The Stainless Steel Thermal Carafe Lined with Glass?

No, it’s double-stainless steel with no glass lining, which is comforting since glass-lined thermal carafes tend to shatter sometimes.

– What Kind of Filter Does Moccamaster Use?

Flat-bottom filters are used, paper filters are recommended over the use of permanent filters since mesh filters can retain oils and clog easily.

– Can I Brew Less Than The Full Capacity?

Yes, you can. You’ll find markings for making 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10 cups. Some models lack these marks, but you can still brew less than full capacity.

– Does Moccamaster Have Auto-Start Feature?

No, none of the Moccamaster models has an auto start feature.
