The Technivorm is certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) to brew at the correct temperature, because the water has to boil in order to leave the heater. Since there is no pump, and water does not fall from top to bottom like some brewers, you know that the water coming out is the right temperature. (Please note: If you live at altitude, water boils at temperatures lower than 200 degrees.) See further comments on brew temperature and coffee temperature on our online Technivorm Details Page and the pdf of our Technivorm Tip Sheet.
These brewers contain no internal components made with aluminum; the heating element is made of copper. The Technivorm models are all simple, straight-forward machines that do one thing ... and do it very well! It brews directly into a 1 liter (34 oz.= 8 four oz. cups) all stainless steel thermal carafe (included).
They all have a whopping 1475 watts, 13 amp draw which means they have the power to make water hot in a very short period of time. (Only a handful of coffee makers are rated over 1200 watts.) The machine is not well-known, but highly rated, as two articles by Sam Gugino in Wine Spectator will verify. Comes with a five year manufacturer's warranty.
