Cook’s Illustrated magazine did an in-depth review of automatic drip coffee makers in their September / October issue, just released. The excellent Technivorm KBT-741 brewer, made in Holland, was their clear top pick. The review stated that the Technivorm, “achieved perfect temperatures for brewing and serving and was the closest of all the coffee makers to reaching the ideal brewing time”. All of the brewers reviewed utilize vacuum carafes, a trend clearly best for the coffee.
We were named as the source for the Technivorm brewers and indeed we are one of their largest dealers in the US. We offer the KBT-741 and the nearly identical Thermo CD (CDT) models. Because of the demand created by the review we sold through our inventory and are now accepting pre-orders for brewers that will arrive here mid-September. Technivorm has also announced a price increase that will be effective Sept. 1, so pre-ordering prior to that date assures customers of securing a brewer at the present price of $239.95, and, of receiving one from the first shipment to arrive.
