'Life is too short to drink bad coffee' - Gerard Smit founded Technivorm, the manufacturer of Moccamaster, in 1964 with this philosophy. In 1968 he designed the first Moccamaster. Since then, the well-known coffee maker has been the market leader in brewing the best coffee, product design and sustainability.
The secret of the perfect coffee: the copper heating element from Moccamaster is unique and ensures an optimal brewing temperature between 92 and 96C. Why is this temperature optimal? If coffee is brewed too cold, the coffee tastes sour. If the coffee is made too hot, coffee tastes bitter. The brewing temperature of Moccamaster is optimised to prepare a hot cup of coffee that tastes good. The brewing time also affects the taste of the coffee. This is perfectly arranged with all Moccamasters, so that every cup of coffee has the perfect strength.
