Having used Technivorm coffeemakers for years, this particular model was purchased as a gift for my coffeeholic daughter.What you get for the price of a Technivorm is a well-made, durable coffeemaker, backed by an excellent warranty, that brews coffee at the correct temperature and brew time for proper extraction. That is a lot! What you do not get is automation or gimmicks or magic.Even for the price of a Technivorm, you do not magically get great coffee. Because the Technivorm gets the extraction right, you may well notice an improvement in your coffee. Extraction, however, is only a part of the equation. It is often advised that the four necessary elements of great coffee are: good water, good coffee, correct technique, and scrupulous cleanliness. If you are serious about enjoying much better coffee at home, an SCAA certified coffeemaker, like the Technivorm, is a good place to start, but the improvement in your coffee will be only incremental until you address all the elements of good coffee. When you drink a great cup of coffee, in a good coffee shop, you are drinking coffee brewed with filtered water; using freshly roasted specialty grade coffee beans, correctly ground just before brewing; with a coffee to water ratio of about 1:16; at 195° to 205° F; and brew time for correct percentage of extraction. Until you get the other elements right, no coffeemaker is going to yield truly excellent coffee.Yes, I am a little cracked on the subject of good coffee! I highly recommend any of Technivorm’s line of coffeemakers, and believe they represent honest value, but a coffeemaker no more makes great coffee, than a saw makes furniture, or a guitar makes music. Do your part and a Technivorm will yield coffee as good as any drip coffeemaker.I DO NOT RECOMMEND LEAVING COFFEE IN A GLASS CARAFE ON A WARMER TO KEEP IT HOT – TASTE DETERIORATES QUICKLY.

I purchased the 60 oz Moccamaster after weeks of reading reviews and watching videos and trying to convince myself this would be worth the money spent. I’ve been through 3 Cuisinart coffee makers in the past 4 years and even though my first Cuisinart lasted nearly 8 years, the last ones all had issues — and the coffee wasn’t that great or hot. I had very high expectations for this and it definitely lived up to them! Makes GREAT coffee and it is HOT coffee, too.I debated between the glass carafe and the thermal but I like to see the coffee in the pot so went with glass. I was concerned it would not fit underneath my cabinet (17″ from counter to below cabinet) and fits beautifully. I pull it out to make coffee. As other reviewers have mentioned, the cord is a little overkill but it doesn’t bother me at all. I keep the coffee maker in the corner by my fridge and having black granite counter tops helps to hide it. It would be nice if it wasn’t so bulky.My last 2 coffee makers were “14 cups” Cusinart. This is 60 ounces. I filled this up, poured it into the Cuisinart carafe and it hit just under the 12 cup mark. So even though this is considered the large Moccamaster, to me, it’s about a normal size. Ordered these filters and they are perfect. They don’t collapse and they’re not too low. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IYD1MII/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1This does have a few parts to fiddle with but it’s easy. Plus cleaning is very easy. We use filtered water from the fridge. We LOVE the coffee! It’s also pretty cool looking.

I kept my Moccamaster for one week, hoping the flavor of my coffee would improve as I figured out the best combo of water and grounds. Unfortunately it didn’t and I was dealt with disappointedly weak coffee the entire week I had it. I noticed on multiple brews that the water drip didn’t come close to saturating all the coffee grounds in the basket. A small circle of grounds got the majority of the water drip, whereas the rest of the grounds were just wet.One thing I tried to fix this problem was running the coffee machine like a traditional pour over. I closed off the drip so the initial bloom could sit for a bit before dripping. Then I’d let it run and close off the drip again to let the grounds steep before it continued to drip. I’d even give the grounds a quick stir before letting the brewing finish off. This entire process sadly didn’t help. I still ended up with a weak brew.As for the water to grounds ratio, I followed Technivorm’s guidelines, which stated their ratio should not be altered. I think the problem with the CD Grand 60 is its basket is just too big and that leads to poor evenness with the grounds saturation. I wonder if the KBG 40oz. has that problem. It does have better reviews so its smaller basket might get more even grounds saturation.
