Sadly, although I would love to have a MoccaMaster, Technivorm will not sell them here in the Netherlands where they are made.  

They have an exclusive arrangement with Douwe Egberts, of Senseo fame.

Excellent review and replies!  I have had the model with the thermal carafe  for going on three years now and will agree with everyone on the problem of saturation of grounds.  One other problem I encountered was tightening down the lid to the carafe too much.  I had to use a pair of plier to remove it the next day :)  

I have been spoiled on how quick this maker produces a pot of coffee.  It is by far the fastest maker I have owned.  I love it and would think it the "perfect" mackine if the company would just get off their butt and make a spray head attachement.  How difficult could it be???????

I love this brewer and mine came with a Technivorm Scoop.  I do agree with the dispersion but it is better than any other brewer out there.  It's really cool too.  Great construction and I wouldn't even think about getting a different brewer or owning another one.

In addition (as above) I would like to add that I like that this company isn't huge about graphics and such.  It would rather concentrate on producing and improving on a great product.  They depend on their great product to speak and it does.

After using the multiporto water pipe, i think this is one of the best for brewing. I wish it was mine but it was a gift for my father and i only visit it rarely.

One thing that I feel our reviewer missed is that 5 to 6 "spoons" of coffee is actually correct. The reviewer made the mistake of translating "coffee spoon" (which is standard at 2 Tbsp) for "Tablespoon." Hence, the instructions per technivorm manual is completely accurate, at 10-12 Tbsps per 1 liter - to 1.25 liter pot (depending on which model of Techivorm you are using).

That being said, all the coffee geeks I have read (including Tom at Sweet Maria's) recommend removing the pot for 30 secs to 1 min to allow the coffee to steep in the filter, which seems like a real pain to me (and I even roast my coffee and rotate the finished stock every other day).  I find that by making the grind a touch finer you basically get the same extraction effect, as it slows down the drip process through the filter without the hassle.

Dear jdonaldson:

I give a rat's derriere (so to speak), because some of us actually prefer a little caffeine in our beverage! : )

I will let those of you who wish to burn all the caffeine and origin flavor profiles from their coffee to drink espresso. I for one am a full city roast man...

Dear Technivorm users,

The general opinion seems to be quite good. Has anyone had any problems brewing less than, say, 5 cups
in their CD? I understand the machine is designed for handling more like 10 cups, but is there any
specified minimum? I would love to hear from owners who might still have their manual :)

Thanks,

--Sanjay
