Review of Moccamaster KBGV Select


I have been using the Moccamaster KBGV Select for a few months and I am very impressed with it. It is a stylish and durable coffee maker that can brew up to 10 cups of delicious coffee in less than six minutes. It has a simple design and easy controls, with just two switches and an automatic hotplate. It also has a unique feature that lets me choose between brewing a full or half carafe, depending on how much coffee I need.

The Moccamaster KBGV Select is certified by the Specialty Coffee Association and the European Coffee Brewing Centre for its quality and performance. It can brew coffee at the optimal temperature and extraction rate, resulting in a smooth and balanced flavor. It also has a copper heating element that ensures consistent heating and a glass carafe that keeps the coffee hot for up to 100 minutes.

The Moccamaster KBGV Select is not a cheap coffee maker, but it is worth the investment. It is hand-built in the Netherlands with high-quality materials and components. It has a 5-year warranty and lifetime repairs, so I can trust that it will last for a long time. It also comes in a wide range of colors, so I can find one that matches my kitchen decor.

The Moccamaster KBGV Select is not perfect, though. It lacks some convenience features that are common in other coffee makers, such as a programmable timer, a water level indicator, or a pause-and-serve function. It also requires paper filters, which can add to the cost and waste. The hotplate switches off after 100 minutes, which can be annoying if I want to keep my coffee warm for longer. The design can also be polarizing, as some people may find it too industrial or bulky.

Overall, I think the Moccamaster KBGV Select is a great coffee maker that can make excellent coffee with minimal fuss. It is simple, elegant, and reliable. It is ideal for coffee lovers who appreciate quality and craftsmanship over bells and whistles.
