Drip Stop Switch

While brewing coffee for the crowd, if you feel like stealing a quick cup for yourself then gladly do so by pulling the drip stop switch towards you and pour yourself a cup before pushing the switch back towards the basket for the brewing process to complete.

Perfect Temperature

With a temperature range of 196°F – 205°F the heat is just about perfect for coffee soluble extraction. Accurate temperature is required to get the most flavor out of your ground coffee and also promote intensity. It also automatically shuts down when the water tank is empty.

Hot Plate

The hot plate keeps coffee hot after brewing. It comes with a switch for a full and half circle to ensure that the coffee stays hot while it is being consumed. The high setting is for a full pot and the low setting is for half pot. Once the pot is empty be sure to turn it off as it not powered through the machine and needs to be handled separately.

Glass Carafe

Instead of a Thermal Carafe, you will find your Moccamaster to be equipped with a Glass Carafe. For those who are not well informed about this feature, a Glass Carafe is appropriate for those who are always on the go or have a rather frequent intake of coffee in every hour, as Glass Carafes usually don’t retain heat for a long time.

Unlike typical Techivorm home brewers, you will find this office brewer with a spray arm, which features a single large hole that comes equipped with an incorporated shower head. The advantage with this is that it allows the pulsating water to be evenly spread across your coffee grounds, ensuring a balanced flavor.
