Moccamaster coffee machines are some of the most popular on the market and for a good reason. With all models, you get an elegant design and a good cup of coffee – every time.

While all models of Moccamaster are distinguished by excellent quality and coffee, all models may not fit your specific needs. In this article, I review the best and most test-winning Moccamaster models on the market, so you can find the model that suits your coffee and household needs.

Moccamaster KBGC982

I will start my reviews with the Moccamaster KBGC982.

The machine makes a good cup of coffee and that it is quick to brew the coffee. However, I’m less enthusiastic about the machine’s power consumption if you keep the coffee on the machine’s hot plate.

Luxury Elements

Moccamaster KBGC982 is a coffee machine that comes in a simple, elegant, and clean design. Therefore, it is a model that will fit well in most kitchens as the machine will not interfere with the already existing decor.

The machine comes with several luxury elements and is somewhat reminiscent of the models used by baristas. This is why it is also in a higher price range than many other machines on the market.

Capacity and Motor

With the Moccamaster KBGC982, you get a machine with a 1.25-liter water tank. While this is not the largest capacity, it equates to about ten cups.

This is a fast model that brews coffee efficiently which is partly due to its powerful motor, which has a power output of 1520 watts.

One can, therefore, brew a whole pot of coffee in no more than six minutes.

Temperature Control

If you do not drink all the coffee right away, the Moccamaster KBGC982 has two heating elements. One of these comes with a Keep Warm feature that ensures that the coffee stays warm even after the coffee is brewed.

To ensure a good cup of coffee, it comes with a convenient Temperature Control. This feature ensures that the optimum temperature-water ratio is always achieved.

The best temperature for coffee brewing is approximately between 92 degrees and 96 degrees. This is why the brewing temperature is kept at this with the help of the machine’s heating elements.

Easy-to-Use

The Moccamaster KBGC982 comes with a descaling indicator that provides notification when descaling the machine.

Last but not least, the Moccamaster KBGC982 has an auto-off feature. This feature ensures that the machine turns itself off after 40 minutes if you forget it.

Not only is this a practical safety feature, but it also ensures that the machine does not consume unnecessary power.

Moccamaster H931

Amongst all the best Moccamaster coffee machines the Moccamaster H931 is one that I was fairly impressed with.

While particularly enthusiastic about the machine’s coffee, I also think the user-friendliness of the model is something that should be mentioned.

However, once again, I need to make potential consumers aware that the machine consumes a relatively large amount of power if you keep the coffee warm on the hot plate for a long period of time.

A Few Basics

With the Moccamaster H931, you get a coffee machine with a water tank with a capacity of 1.25 liters. This means that the machine can brew about ten cups of coffee at a time.

While this is not the greatest capacity, the machine is, in turn, fast. These cups are brewed in just six minutes.

Also, the Moccamaster H931 comes with an auto-off feature. That means that the machine automatically switches off after 40 minutes if not used.

This ensures that the machine does not stay switched on if you forgot to switch it off. This way, you do not need to use electricity unnecessarily.

Two Heaters

The Moccamaster H931 is made of scratch-resistant aluminum. So, it has an elegant and stylish look so that it can be placed on most kitchen tables.

The coffee maker also comes with two separate heaters. While one heater is for coffee brewing, the other heater is to keep the coffee warm. 

It comes with a Keep Warm feature that ensures that the coffee is kept warm even after brewing is complete.

Engine and Temperature

The Moccamaster H931 has a powerful and efficient engine, which is one reason it can brew an entire jug in less than six minutes. 

The motor has a power output of 1520 watts, which is relatively powerful for a coffee machine.

Finally, the Moccamaster H931 comes with a feature that ensures that the coffee is brewed at the most optimal brewing temperature.

Another top model from Moccamaster, which is incredibly popular is designed in stainless steel, giving it an elegant and timeless design.

One of the really cool features of this Moccamaster, and where it really differs from the other models in the range, is that it brews the coffee directly into a thermos.

The model also has a highly reliable 1450 watt motor, which will ensure that you have a well-functioning coffee machine for the next several years to come.

If you register your coffee machine on the Moccamaster website, you have the opportunity to increase the warranty on the brewing unit for a total of 10 years.

Moccamaster Cup-one

Cup-one is unlike the other Moccamaster coffee machines on this list.

Key Features

The model is an extremely compact and fast coffee machine that brews 0.3 liters of coffee. It brews in about four minutes and has a power of 1090 W.

The cup-one does not have a heating element and switches off automatically when the water tank is empty.

According to the manufacturer, the water heats up to 92-96 degrees, and the finished coffee has a temperature of 80-84. So even though the model has no heating element, the coffee is still more than sufficiently hot.

Balanced Cup of Coffee

We also tested the quality of coffee and the conclusion is that this model is for someone who loves filter coffee and who only needs to brew one large coffee cup at a time. 

Most people might ask what to do with a coffee machine that can only brew one cup of coffee at a time? Why not just brew a single cup on a normal coffee machine?

Of course, it is only possible to brew a cup of coffee instead of a whole jug on a regular coffee machine. But because the water runs through faster than for example, on the Cup-one machine, it becomes both an expensive and bad cup of coffee.

The decisive factor is the time it takes for the water to run through the coffee.

On a normal coffee machine, the water runs significantly faster than on a Cup-one model so that the result will be a thin and bitter cup of coffee.

The design of Cup-one has just taken this into account, and both the dosage of water and coffee and temperature are balanced to deliver a good coffee cup.

Additional Items

The Moccamaster Cup-one comes with two white porcelain mugs with double insulating silicone.

Also, you get 10 take-away mugs with lids, so you have the opportunity to bring your morning coffee on the go.

It also comes with 80 coffee filters for the model and a small brush to clean the filter funnel.

The model is also available in several beautiful colors, and there should be something for every taste.

Advantages

  • European Approved by European Coffee Brewing Center
  • Brews 3.3 cups of coffee in about four minutes
  • Specially designed to balance brewing time and taste for just one cup of coffee
  • Comes with two porcelain mugs that exactly match it amount of coffee brewed

Moccamaster KB952 AO

The model can brew up to ten cups of coffee (1.25 liters) in just six minutes. The coffee machine has a double heating element, which ensures that the heat is optimal both during brewing and afterward.

Should you forget to turn off the coffee machine, it will automatically switch itself off after 40 minutes.

Also, the upper heating element turns off automatically when the water tank is empty. It increases safety and reduces power consumption.

The model also has automatic drip stops.

Ease of Use

The model is recommended by the Swedish Energy Agency, where it is praised for its ease of use and, of course, also for its energy consumption, which is 65 kWh / year.

This consumption is based on brewing one pitcher of coffee every day for 365 days and then leaving it on the heater for 30 minutes.

The coffee machine is made of scratch-resistant aluminum and is therefore resistant to the knocks and scratches that a standing coffee machine can easily get.

As it is approved by the European Coffee Brewing Center, it will deliver the correct brewing temperature, brewing time, and serving temperature.
