Summary: In it's defense, this coffee maker does have a great pump and delivers hot coffee quickly. My husband loves it; I don't. My one complaint is all the parts -- and I mean lots of parts. There's the top sitting on top of the water tank, then the filter top, the filter holder, the screw in device when making coffee (which comes out after the coffee is made) then another screw top goes in to keep the coffee hot.
Summary: This is the best coffeemaker I have EVER had! I went back and forth over ordering it because of the price, but finally just did it and boy, am I glad I did. The coffee is at the right temperature and the thermal carafe keeps it hot for as long as I need it to. (Not all day, so don't expect that.) There is no bitterness in the coffee and because of the carafe, it doesn't continue to "cook" on a hot plate.
Summary: One of the best products I have ever purchased. If you use filtered water and use high quality finely ground coffee using a burr grinder, you will get better coffee than pretty much any other coffee maker out there made for a consumer, for home use. Every single person who drinks my coffee emphatically wants to know how I do it! My mom wants one for Christmas now. I am excited to get up in the morning even if it is just to drink Technivorm-made coffee.
Summary: Excellent, Excellent Coffee Maker. This machine is for the coffee geek or aficionado seeking the pinnacle of brew. You've found the right machine, this is the Rolls-Royce of Auto Drip Brewers. The heart of this machine is a 1500w Copper Boiler, most machine's are aluminum , less wattage and much less robust. What this means is that the machine is going to hit the correct brewing temp recommended by the SCAA (195-205) very quickly and stay there.
Summary: I was excited when I ordered this coffee maker, because of the great review by America's Test Kitchen - rating it the top coffee maker of all they tested. First cup of coffee was great - as advertised. However, after that, the next time I used it the basket overflowed and made a huge mess. Why? The little plastic button that the carafe has to push in to open the basket outlet malfunctioned. On examination, it was cheap plastic and only lasted for one pot of coffee.
Carafe design and build is poor, but the manufacturer stepped up even after the warranty expired.

Summary: This is my second Technivorm Moccamaster brewer and it is not nearly as good as the first which, sadly, died after ten years. In the old days, there was only one company in the U.S. importing this product and the build quality was very high. The second brewer works well, and makes very good coffee, but the thermal carafe has two interrelated problems I never had with the first.
