Just want the deal? Save $120 on the Moccamaster KBS Brewer on Drop from 11/28 through 12/2.
The cycle of self-obsolescence is well-documented and frustrating. Though the conversation is dominated by smartphone releases, the practice pervades pretty much everything you buy — even coffee makers.
The champions of the coffee-making space — Bonavita, Breville, Bunn, Cuisinart and the rest — all, to some extent, practice it. Every now and again, what we know about coffee changes and the coffee maker changes with it, but serious shifts seldom occur.
For those who’d prefer to get a coffee maker that resists change, there’s Moccamaster — the first drip coffee maker to obtain the SCA’s badge of approval (which is incredibly difficult) and one of the fastest brewers in the world.
Of its many features, two stand out: a copper heating element and the ability to disassemble. Given the material’s natural heat conductivity, copper coils heat water more quickly than machines using steel or other methods (the only machine we’ve tested that brews faster is Breville’s Precision Brewer). The ability to take the whole thing apart is also unique, and it allows for troubleshooting and fixing at home rather than losing your source of coffee to the mail for a few weeks (it’s also great for cleaning the machine).
From 11/28 through 12/2, Moccamaster’s KBS model will be $120 off on Drop. It’s the 8-cup model that uses a glass carafe and a hot plate. This is as affordable as Moccamasters get.
A note on Drop:
Drop is not like other online retailers. It’s a members-only site that requires signing up (all it takes is an email address). If you’re not a member, you can sign up here. When you place an order from Drop at a discounted price, you’re not buying from them directly. The site works by taking orders from consumers, then bulk ordering product at a discount directly from brands and other wholesalers. For more information on how Drop works, click here.
