I still remember the best cup of coffee I’ve ever had. It was in a small cafe in Hanoi, Vietnam, where I tasted my first sip of a frothy cup of coconut coffee (a Vietnamese specialty), and I instantly knew that all other future cups of joe that met my lips would pale in comparison. That is, until, I tasted coffee made by a Moccamaster machine, and acquiesced that I didn’t have to travel all the way to Southeast Asia to get my hands on some perfectly brewed java. Nope, this world renowned coffee maker makes some of the best coffee you’ll ever taste, and right now, it’s on sale.
The Moccamaster KGB is currently available as a Deal of the Day on Amazon for just $246.99. Widely considered as one of the best coffee makers on the market, it usually comes with a high price tag—$309, for this model in particular. We’ve only seen the price of the KGB dip this low once before, all the way back in 2016, so this deal is incredibly rare, and will only last until midnight tonight.
Moccamasters set themselves apart by being some of the fastest coffee brewers in the world; they brew a full 40-ounce pot of coffee in just 4-6 minutes. Handmade in the Netherlands, these machines are built with a unique copper heating element as opposed to a standard aluminum one. This means they’re able to brew coffee to an optimal temperature range between 196ºF and 205ºF, which produces a smoother cup of joe compared to other, cheaply made machines. The KGB is also special in that it features a more refined glass carafe instead of a classic stainless steel version, and has an automatic drip-stop brew-basket that stops the flow of coffee if the carafe is pulled away. Pretty impressive, eh?
My boss, David Kender, states that his Moccamaster is one of his most prized kitchen appliances. He explains, “I’ve owned my Moccamaster for seven years. It’s the single most valuable product purchase I’ve made. Every morning when I take my first sip I say “this is the best cup of coffee I’ve ever had.” Chances are I’ll be saying it tomorrow, too.”
If you’re still using that old coffee maker from years back, I think an upgrade is in order. While the Moccamaster is a bit steep in terms of price, what you’re really paying for is superior construction and quality with these machines. Plus with this sale price, it’s a brew-tiful time to spring for it.
