worldwide standard for brewing coffee at home. Crafted to draw out the utmost
flavor from your coffee grounds in approximately 4-6 minutes, Moccamaster
coffee delivers a comparable experience to the meticulous manual brewing process
or the coffee served in cafés.
Moccamaster’s commitment to durability is evident in their
coffee brewers’ construction, with premium materials, a 5-year warranty, and
ample replacement parts. With conscientious upkeep and regular maintenance, the
Moccamaster coffee brewer should be the final one you'll ever have to purchase.
The Moccamaster KBGV can make a half (20oz) or full (40oz) carafe in 4-6 minutes.
The Moccamaster can hold a temperature of 196 - 205°F thanks to its well-built copper brewing element.
The brewing mechanism of the Moccamaster is thoughtfully engineered to replicate both the bloom and pulsing style of manual coffee brewing.
Moccamaster leverages a cone shaped brew basket (like V60), which helps maximize the coffee’s full complexity, from flavor to aroma.
The hotplate keeps your coffee warm with temperatures ranging from 175°F to 185°F depending on how much you brewed.

Moccamaster Model Comparison
Moccamaster KBGV FAQ
How coarsely should I grind my coffee?
We recommend a medium-coarse grind, which should look like coarse sand or sea salt. If having your coffee ground, use these descriptors to ensure you get optimal coarseness. Note that most pre-ground, bagged coffee tends to be too finely ground for ideal operation.
Is there a difference between filters?
Moccamaster oxygen whitened filters are the perfect choice for clean, crisp coffee. Brown unbleached filters may leave a “cardboard” taste in your coffee, while permanent wire-mesh type filters can quickly clog with coffee oils. A clogged filter may result in your brew basket overflowing or steeping the coffee too long, potentially resulting in over-extracted bitter-tasting coffee.
What kind of water should I use?
If it tastes good to drink, it will make good coffee. We recommend fresh tap, filtered, or bottled water. We do not recommend using reverse osmosis filtered water or distilled water, as it can damage the brewer’s boiling element.
In reverse osmosis water and distilled water, all minerals are removed, and the water’s PH becomes slightly acidic. The water will leach minerals out of the copper boiling element to return to a neutral PH, eventually damaging the copper element permanently. Because we build Moccamaster coffee brewers to last for a long time, using reverse osmosis or distilled water could significantly reduce the brewer’s life.
What is descaling, and how often should I do it?
Over time, minerals from water accumulate inside the Moccamaster’s boiling element, forming scale. This buildup can slow and eventually stop the flow of water. It also can affect the brewing temperature and saturation time. If not descaled regularly, the brewer can become permanently damaged. Descaling products break down the mineral buildup inside your brewer, ensuring consistent brewer functionality and great coffee.
Descale your brewer every 100 cycles, or a minimum of every three months. An excellent way to remember is by descaling after you finish a box of 100-count filters.
What is the difference between the KBGV and KB models?
The KB does not have the half and full carafe switch that the KBGV has. The KB has a manual adjust brew basket so you can control how the coffee steeps in the brew basket if you wanted.
What occurs if an excessive amount of water is placed in the reservoir? For instance, if you intend to brew 20oz but inadvertently fill it to 25oz or 30oz?
Unless the power is turned off, the brewing process will accommodate the exact quantity of water that has been added to the reservoir.
What size cone filter does the Moccamaster KBGV use?
Any standard #4 filter. We recommend an unbleached, white, paper filter; but you can use any #4 paper filter, or permanent filter in your Moccamaster coffee maker.
Is the Moccamaster KGBV 120v?
All Moccamaster coffee makers sold in the United States and Canada are 120V.

Care and Maintenance
Descale your brewer every 100 cycles, or a minimum of every three months. An excellent way to remember is by descaling after you finish a box of 100-count filters. While descaler will remove limescale buildup on the brewer’s boiling element, cleaner will remove the buildup of coffee oils and organic materials. You may clean the brewer as frequently as you would like.
