Design and Construction

The Technivorm Moccamaster KBT 741 looks attractive with its aluminum and stainless steel combination. It immediately pops out in a room. It fits well in kitchens with a contemporary or futuristic design, especially with its polished silver color scheme. 

Technivorm has created one of the most durable coffee makers in the industry on the same price range. It does not have any flimsy plastic parts that pose a threat to its durability. Another product, the Technivorm Moccamaster KBGT 741 also comes with a 5-year manufacturer warranty. 


The Moccamaster KBT coffee maker is an ideal size for small to medium-sized companies or homes. It is not the biggest coffee maker in the market, but it is bigger than some of the popular coffee machines, such as the Black And Decker CM2035B.

It stands  11.5 tall, 6.8 wide, and 15.2 inches in length. In other words, it is lengthier and narrower than the Technivorm Moccamaster KBG741. This makes the Technivorm Moccamaster Thermal KBT741 suitable for apartments or offices that have limited countertop space.


The high-quality steel and aluminum combination makes the machine reliable for long-term and heavy-duty use. You do not have to worry about plastic parts chipping off after longer use or breaking fragile components when handling. However, it does not hurt to take good care of the machine to make it last longer.

The manufacturer’s choice of material makes it both a beauty to look at and a dependable coffee maker that is sure to produce your daily cup of Joe for many years to come.

Safety Features

The machine has a drip-stop brew-basket feature, allowing you to control how fast the coffee goes into its double-walled thermal carafe. 

Technivorm Moccamaster KBT 741 automatically turns off on its own when the reservoir is empty, which saves you from spending money on electric bills. It also gives you a sense of peace during days when you forget to unplug the machine before leaving the house. 

The drip-stop brew-basket enables you to manually stop the flow of coffee into your carafe in the middle of the brewing cycle, so you can have your cup of coffee before the cycle is finished.

Its thermal carafe keeps your coffee warm for an hour, so you do not have to reheat when getting your second cup of Joe in the morning.

If you are traveling with a carafe and want to keep your coffee warm for longer, use the machine’s Travel Lid!

Accessories Included

The Technivorm Moccamaster KBT 741  comes with a thermal double-walled carafe that keeps your coffee hot for an hour, making it convenient for refills. 

This also has a drip-stop brew-basket that gives you control of how much coffee flows into your carafe — 10 cups and 2-5 cups. 

It does not have a hot plate like the Technivorm Moccamaster KBG741, but the Technivorm Moccamaster KBT741 thermo coffeemaker stainless steel is enough to keep your coffee hot for consumption. 

Brew Time 

Technivorm is known for its coffee makers’ fast brewing time, and this particular model is not any different from their other models. It brews a full carafe (40 ounces or 10 cups of coffee) within 4-6 minutes, making it one of the fastest coffee makers in its price range. 

It is nowhere near the unmatched BUNN BXB Velocity Brew in this category, but it certainly gets the job done. If you cannot wait for 6 minutes to complete the brewing cycle, its drip-stop brew-basket enables you to pour a cup of coffee in the middle of the cycle.

Brew Quality 

Just like the Technivorm Moccamaster KBGT 741, KBT 741 produces quality brewed coffee as it brews at the ideal temperature of 196 F to 205 F, maximizing the coffee’s aroma and flavor in every cup.

It delivers the ideal water saturation time in its brewing cycle, so you can have the perfect cup.

The Technivorm Moccamaster thermal KBT741 delivers consistent flavors, and its thermal carafe keeps your coffee warm up to an hour, allowing you to enjoy quality coffee one cup at a time.

Ease of Use 

In this Technivorm Moccamaster review, we find that the Moccamaster KBT coffee maker is a straightforward coffee maker that makes it easy for beginners to operate. 

It does not have the complex or advanced features found of other coffee machines, making it desirable for coffee drinkers who do not want to deal with a complicated set of buttons and settings that many modern coffee machines have. 

Want quality coffee? Turn the switch on and let the magic starts! You can clearly see how much water is in the reservoir and the indicator lines are visible. 

It only takes a few minutes to figure out how the machine works, and it comes with an easy-to-understand user manual for further guidance.


The Technivorm Moccamaster KBT741 is super easy to clean. It only takes a minute or two to clean it up after use. A simple coffee maker with a simple cleaning process, the parts easily come off without any difficulties. 

There are only two parts of the machine that needs regular clean-up–filter and carafe. You can use soap and water to clean them thoroughly after each use. 

Technivorm recommends descaling the coffee maker once every 100 brews or every 3 months if you use it daily. Stick to the schedule and there will be no need to spend a lot of time. The process will only require minimal effort, too. 

Brand & Customer Service 

Technivorm is a well-established brand in the coffee maker industry due to its innovative designs and quality line of appliances. It is a popular brand than can easily go head-to-head with other top brands, such as Cuisinart and Keurig.

Who Should Buy this Coffee Maker? 

This is definitely for coffee enthusiasts who are looking for an easy-to-use coffee maker. 

The Moccamaster KBT coffee maker is for people who want quality brewed coffee in the morning without shelling out too much money on the unit.

Its durable metal housings are favorable for coffee drinkers who have the tendency of moving the appliance from one countertop to another, whether it may be because of constant redecoration or travels. 

Adventurers and travelers will also find the unit’s Travel Lid helpful on occasions where they want to bring a carafe with them to satisfy your caffeine cravings while on the move.

Final Verdict
