Topic: Technivorms shower head (11 msgs / 648 lines)

Hi recently made the plunge and purchased from Tom a KBT 741 and does
make great coffee. This last weekend I was brewing and forgot to place
the plastic top on it and happened to notice that shower head does not
shower. All the water appears to collect in a single stream and drip in
the center of the grounds. I expected it to come out of the holes
individually and not collect. Is this what is to be expected or am I
doing something incorrect?
 
 
Thanks,
 
Don

Works that way. However, it still makes perfect coffee.

I was wondering about that also.  Mine does the same  thing.

Hi-
Maybe you have a couple of things going on, but I would first run coffee pot
cleaner through the machine. Mine is a KB 741 that looks identical to yours
except for no thermal carafe or base cutout for the taller carafe.
As the stuff dissolved in the H2O precipitates out on the heating element,
the mineral deposits tend to insulate the nichrome wire from the water
jacket in the heater.
Simultuously, the heater gets hotter as the dispensed water gets cooler.
There goes the neighborhood. Along with the lower temperature, the water
just tends to dribble out the arm. Good coffee comes from full attention to
Brewing, the last step before consumption.
Since that's the Last Chance, don't blow it. Clean the H2O path completely.
Don't ignore the total control of coffee brewing you have.
If the "KBT 741 ...does make great coffee.", just replace the lid next time
and pretend nothing bad is happening. It kind of looks like a Popeil "Set it
and Forget It" contraption, but that's why we dropped out of the trees with
this Home Roasting Charade.
Anybody with a weed burner can roast coffee.
Cheers -RayO, aka Opa!

Well, if they are all supposed to ship with the new 9 hole head, you paid
for it, make sure you have it!

I have had mine since November and have cleaned it only two times with the  
cleaner.  I could not tell any difference in the spray after  cleaning.  I do 
use filtered water but I know that does not remove the  minerals that can clog 
things up. Maybe I should use the cleaner more  often.

Floyd it has nine holes and 1 stream of water.
 
The unit is question has only made 15 pots of coffee I can't image it
needs cleaning already, I use filtered water and the center post is
crystal clear. It makes good coffee, I just read a lot of posts saying
the water needs to spread evenly across the grounds to make the coffee
better. Since this one was billed to do just that I assumed the nine
holes were supposed to stay independent streams of water.
 
Oh well, like I said it makes a good cup of coffee I guess Technivorms
could save a little and drill one hole would taste the same.

oh.  Well maybe the other 8 are backup in case the only 1 it uses gets
clogged.
I think there's a problem here - the 9 holes are to try to 'shower' the
grounds and more evenly wet them during the brew phase, am I right?  I doubt
this is anything you did wrong - if it was you, you would be getting weak
drip from all 9 holes, not steady stream from 1 and nothin from 8.  Tech
support, please!

Floyd,
I'd bought the TechV back when the single hole was standard and the 9-hole
was optional.  Thinking that the 9'er would be better, I ordered one.
Playing with both, I couldn't see a benefit to the 9'er.  The 9'ers holes
favored the left side of the brew basket because that's where the holes were
located.  I don't know if TechV ever changed the hole locs in later designs
of that 9'er head, but I found less even distribution of water with the 9'er
installed.  Of course with either you can stir the grounds a bit, but I
don't do that either.  I switched back to the single hole head and haven't
use the 9'er since.  I do allow the brew basket to fill with water for
awhile and then put the carafe under to enable the drip flow.  That
basically forces the water to rise within the brew basket and better
saturate the grounds.  I noticed Tom also made that recommendation in his
tip-sheet of the TechV.

I have the thermal carafe model, which will not allow water to flow  
from the reservoir to the showerhead unless the carafe depresses the  
white button at the base. What I do is preheat the carafe by filling  
it with very hot tapwater while I draw and pour the filtered brewing  
water, grind the beans and fill the basket. I then empty the carafe,  
hit the "on" switch and allow the carafe to snug up against the white  
button.  I keep the drip-rate selector on the basket-holder at  
"closed" until nearly half the water in the reservoir is gone; at  
that point the basket is nearly full, and I take my Aeropress paddle  
and stir the grounds thoroughly. Then I slide the selector to the  
"half-open" position until the reservoir is empty, at which point I  
slide it to fully open. As soon as dripping into the carafe has  
stopped, I remove the carafe, place a cup underneath the basket  
holder, and immediately cap the carafe. I find this optimizes  
extraction and maximizes temperature (a moot point usually because it  
gets consumed before I can drink any of it). If there is any left and  
it is at all cooling off, 30 sec. in the microwave brings it back to  
life in the cup.  If the brew is too strong for anyone, they are  
welcome to dilute it with water from the espresso machine's tap.

I checked this morning and water comes out all the holes evenly.
