About Technivorm Moccamaster KBGV Select Midnight Blue - Refurbished
We have only one of these available in Midnight Blue, one of Moccamaster's most popular colors. This particular brewer was purchased by someone as a gift and the recipient wanted a different color so it was returned unused. Nonetheless, we put it through the same thorough cleaning process, inside and out, that any refurbished brewer here would undergo.
The latest model to join the Technivorm Moccamaster lineup. A variation of the now retired KBG model, the KBGV select allows you to brew either full or half pots of coffee with ease. The biggest difference between these brewers is the switch on the front. With this new selector switch you can easily optimize your brewing - the throughput speed and extraction time are extended when the half jug mode is chosen. The result is an aromatic cup of coffee with a full taste, regardless of the smaller quantity.

Many customers are not interested in thermal carafe brewers, preferring to keep their coffee hot on a soleplate. Problem is most brewers have heating elements that are too hot and do not adjust to the diminishing quantity as you pour, so coffee's delicate flavors get rapidly compromised. That can turn a wonderful coffee into an acrid brew. Technivorm of Holland has figured out how to have the best of both worlds. The soleplate of the KBGV automatically adjusts to the amount of coffee in the carafe, maintaining beverage temperature between 176 and 185 degrees F, a level that can retain flavor.
Cleverly designed, the brewer is also solidly built. It has a copper boiling element inside with double safety guard. Outside is a sturdy aluminum housing in a brushed silver finish. The carafe has a smart design - a slightly tapered top with a long stem takes brewed coffee to the bottom of the carafe so that the resulting coffee is thoroughly mixed and homogeneous; most brewers drip directly into a carafe so the beverage is thinner at top than at bottom requiring it to be manually stirred. The soleplate, which keeps the coffee hot, is oven enamelled for longevity
