Handmade and individually tested in the Netherlands, the Moccamaster coffeemaker brews a Gold Cup Standard pot of coffee in only eight minutes. A copper heating element ensures water stays at the perfect temperature from the brew cycle's beginning to its end. The ample 64-oz.-cap. glass carafe on this machine makes this model perfect for large households and frequent entertainers. Perfectly synchronizing brew time and temperature, this fast, consistent machine quietly produces a perfect pot of coffee in just 8 minutes. Special copper heating element keeps water temperature at 195deg.-205deg.F throughout brewing for optimum flavor and less bitterness. An independently powered, energy-efficient hot plate with two heat settings keeps coffee at the ideal serving temperature, preventing scorching of partial pots. An innovative 9-hole spray arm disperses the water over the entire grind for a remarkably even soak prior to extraction. Copper lining along the spray arm keeps the water temperature consistent throughout the wetting stage. Operation is simple - just fill the brew basket, add water and press the power switch. All parts that come into contact with water or coffee are BPA-free. Several removable parts for cleaning to avoid oil and residue build up, ensuring a great tasting coffee every time. Illuminated power button is easily seen in the dark. Made in the Netherlands.
