Topic: technivorm advice (10 msgs / 321 lines)
1) From: Beth Henkels
Good morning everyone,
I will most likely be buying a technivorm in the not to distant future.
Does anyone have any advice on which model they like the best?  Are the
features that Tom mentions about the mocha master useful to those of you who
use that?  I have read the comments on the new carafe design.  We once had a
pot that poured like that; woke up every morning to the sound of my husband
swearing at it in the kitchen........so I take that feature very seriously!
Aesthetic design isn't that important to me for this purchase.  We are 100%
drip pot drinkers.
Thanks,
Beth

I also only drink drip and have a KBT 741, I love it.  I set the basket to
closed and let the water build up in there then stir the grounds and let it
soak for a second and then let it go the rest of the time on full open.
Makes the best coffee I have ever had. 
I just ordered a Maestro Plus so I can get rid of the cheap Cuisineart burr
grinder I got back a while ago.  I can't wait to see what kind of a
difference that makes.  Now I just need something bigger than the IR2 to
roast in and I will be setup for life :).  Really looking forward to the
drum demo, got my last lb of misty valley to try it out with

Beth..I have a KBT 741 with the stainless carafe. I actually use a Nissan 1500 carafe because of the one hand pourability. The TV carafe works fine and it's more durable than glass.

Have any of you compared the coffee from a Technivorm VS a Cona vaccum pot??
   
  I am almost sold on a Technivorm since it would take less time to make the coffee but I still wonder if it would produce better coffee than my Cona.

I have a Bodum Santos and sold my Technivorm to Patrick. Nuff said

7) From: Aaron
 From what I have noticed, vac pots tend to produce a ... how to say 
this.... cleaner cup of coffee, they have a finer filter and keep more 
of the body / sediment back.
Granted I have only used my bodum santos vac pot and the closest to a 
filter drip pot that's worthy of being called anything close is my swiss 
gold... sorry Mr Coffee...
as to whether this is a 'better' cup of coffee Id have to say is 
entirely up to the person drinking it.  I like my coffee thick... others 
may not..  perhaps it'd just be a different cup of coffee but not 
necessarily better or worse..
If you do get one, please let us know what you think about the 
comparison between the two.
Aaron

I had both the Technivorm KBTS and Cona (B and D) and Hario Neuvo (as well
as rotary and PID'd Brewtus II).   I sold the Technivorm.
When I'm in a hurry for coffee (vs Americano) I run the steam boiler water
into the Hario, light the Hario flame, and have coffee in one to two
minutes.

I use the Brewtus steam boiler water for my Americanos and French Press =
as well as Ramen Noodles, tea and Hot Chocolate
