At Cape Coffee Beans, we like to sell the best coffee brewing equipment in every category. Value, functionality and reliability are all very important, and historically, it's been difficult to find good quality filter coffee machines in South Africa. In 2017, that all changed for domestic users with the arrival of the Technivorm MoccaMaster range. We're now very pleased to be able to extend that same quality to offices and commercial coffee operations with the arrival of the CDT Grand.
Technivorm is a Dutch company that has hand made its iconic filter coffee machines in the Netherlands since 1969! They have a track record of excellence and have won numerous accolades and awards, including certification by the European Coffee Brewing Centre as well as the Speciality Coffee Association for the quality and consistency of their products. The MoccaMaster is their flagship filter coffee machine range and the CDT Grand is their larger batch brewer for commercial applications.
About the MoccaMaster filter coffee machine range
The MoccaMaster is designed to be incredibly simple to use, and extremely consistent in its brewing. It has an energy-efficient copper heating element controlled by a precise thermostat that ensures that the coffee is brewed with water rapidly heated to 92-96ºC, the ideal temperature for extraction. It also uses a pulse-pouring system, allowing the coffee to bloom and then periodically adding just the right amount of water to keep the bed at the appropriate saturation and temperature. In short, it does what a barista might do when pouring by hand.
To use the MoccaMaster, all you need to do is fill the water chamber to the indicated level, and add a filter and the appropriate amount of coffee to the brew basket. We recommend wetting the filter first, and using freshly ground, high quality coffee, but that's basically all you have to do. The MoccaMaster takes care of the rest, including shutting itself off.
About the CDT Grand MoccaMaster
The CDT Grand MoccaMaster is very similar to the domestic KBG range, except for a few important differences that make it better suited to both larger batches and commercial applications. Firstly and most importantly, it offers a larger brewing capacity. At 1.8L, it can brew enough coffee in 7-8 minutes for up to a dozen people to enjoy.
The other big difference between the CDT and KBG ranges is that the CDT uses the flat-bottomed commercial style of coffee filters. While personal taste may vary, there is a common belief that this flat-bottomed style of filter should yield a more even extraction, thanks to a more consistent bed depth. For that reason, it is the style of filter used for most commercial batch brewers.
Because of these specific features, we highly recommend the CDT Grand for offices, cafes and restaurants that want to serve high quality filter coffee.
For optimal heat retention, pre-heat the thermos with hot water, and brew a full batch. You can also buy spare thermoses so that you can brew extra batches of coffee!
