Technivorm Moccamaster 79312 KBGT coffee brewer 40 oz polished silver Review

Spread the love

After the loss of our coffee maker, we decided to upgrade to the new Technivorm Moccamaster KGBT coffee brewer with thermal carafe.

We were very hesitant about the price, but the positive reviews on the quality of the coffee brewed, made us take the leap. We have had a cheap coffer maker for so long we thought it was time to treat ourselves to a gourmet experience.

We searched and searched and finally came across Moccamaster. It has made many top 5 and 10 lists for gourmet coffee makers so we took a chance. The following is our review based on our personal experience.

How does the Technivorm Moccamaster 79312 kbgt coffee brewer 40 oz polished silver work?

The machine uses a copper coil mechanism to heat the water to 196°-205°F. The copper coil shuts off as soon as the water runs out. The water is run through a reusable cone filter to allow for the apppropriate “bloom” of the coffee

How to use the Product

Fill with water, put coffee in filter, press button. The Technivorm Moccamaster is designed to be easy to use and with a one touch button it certainly is.

Who is the Product for?

The Technivorm Moccamaster is for anyone who wants to drink great coffee from the comfort of their own home.

What we like about the Product

First, we love that it is simple to use. We have owned an expensive expresso machine before and it had like 1000 buttons with manuals that resembled “War and Peace” (For those who don’t know it is a LONG and boring book, at least in our opinion.) See “How to use the Product”.

Second, the company believes in its products so much that it comes with a 5 year warranty.

We also like the stylish design!

Saving the best for last, it makes the best coffee we have had in awhile and we get to have it at home saving us money in the long run!

What we don’t like about the Product

It would be better if they used less plastics in the machine. There are a few flimsy pieces but they do sort of let you know that before you buy the product. The good news is that these parts are easy to replace and the machine comes with a 5 year warranty.


Makes the best coffee we have ever tasted!

Reusable filter

5-year warranty

One Button Operation. We really like this part as it is easy on easy off.



Hefty Price tag coming in at a little over 300 dollars (exact prices may vary)

Plastic Parts. Considering the price of the machine you would think the parts would be metal.

We found a couple of negative reviews that mentioned this point. However, this is mentioned in the product details, so points for disclosing this upfront.

Their about page even states

“All machines are handmade, using only safe and completely recyclable materials. Parts with the hardest wear are easily changeable to new ones, so everyone can enjoy a Moccamaster a lifetime with proper cleaning and descaling.”

Technivorm About Page


Upgrading from a cheap coffee maker the plastic was not a deterrent.  We were surprised by how much better the coffee was.  Using our normal blend and grind we were able to have the luxury of a truly gourmet cup off coffee from the privacy of our home.  The carafe keeps the coffee hot for hours as long as you put the lid on the pot.  Having a travel lid with the carafe allows you to take the pot to enjoy at the office or maybe out on the deck to watch the sun rise.


Is Technivorm Moccamaster 79312 KBGT coffee brewer 40 oz polished silver legit (or any good)?

Absolutely Yes! Despite the drawbacks and couple of negative reviews, this coffee makes the best coffee we have EVER had at home.


Our final thoughts

We fully encourage you to look in to this gourmet coffee maker. We absolutely love ours! It has been wonderful to have gourmet coffee at home especially during this pandemic where you can’t get out that much anyway. We highly recommend this coffee maker to any coffee aficionados looking to upgrade their brew.

  1. Thanks for the great review.
    Two things make this product appeal to me
    1. The ease of operation – I am all in for a one touch operation design which still brews delicious coffee! I find machines with too many buttons on the panel too confusing and you then have to study the manual before you can use them….
    2. The carafe with a travel lid which allows you to take it to the office is an excellent feature – no need to drink the watery stuff in the office.
    My birthday is coming up and I think this will make a great present for me!!!

  2. Great review. Looks like one of Jay’s, very professional looking. If I could afford it right now I would. I have a regular Mr. Coffee and a Keurig for now. You did a great job with the one!!!!!

  3. This is great!
    Thanks so much!
    I have a cheap coffee maker and I”m looking to upgrade. I feel that to buy something so expensive is a bit of a risk but to skimp and save may result in a product which is not much better than what I already have (and want to replace).

  4. Hi there!

    I appreciate your honesty with the few negative reviews and cons. Price doesn’t matter much to me. I’m an avid coffee lover and if it produces an excellent brew then $300 is worth it to me! I also checked out the reviews and the good reviews definitely outweigh the few folks who didn’t have a good experience.

    I like that it heats water to a perfect temp. It sounds crazy but temps any higher than that can really change the flavor of the coffee. Blooming coffee grounds also gives you amazing flavor.

    The reusable filter is nice too. I’m always down for helping out the environment!
