Not just every coffee maker can boast being certified by the SCA and ECBC for coffee brewing standards, but all MoccaMaster brewers from Technivorm can. These coffee brewers have been handmade and individually tested in the Netherlands since 1968. The Moccamaster 59162 KBG has a “unique, copper boiling element that rapidly heats water to control brewing temperature between 196 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit, which is important for coffee soluble extraction, then automatically switches off when the water reservoir is empty.”
The 9-hole spray arm is designed to completely wet out the coffee grounds for even extraction. Ten cups of coffee can be brewed in 6 minutes, and you can even momentarily stop brewing to get a cup when you just can’t wait for that caffeine fix. The 40-ounce carafe sits on a hot plate that holds your brewed coffee at 175-185 degrees F for up to 100 minutes before turning itself off.
The KBG is made of durable metal housings and BPA/BPS/BPF and phthalate-free plastics. The carafe is glass, so it won’t add anything to the taste of your coffee. It measures 14″ tall x 12.75″ wide x 6.5″ deep. This model, made for USA usage, is 120V 1475W.
Technivorm Moccamaster brewers are available at many retailers in the USA, including Williams-Sonoma, Bed Bath and Beyond, Walmart, and Sur la Table, but Amazon offers the 59162 KBG in 18 colors, so you’re sure to find the perfect color to compliment Mom’s kitchen.
