The irony of making great coffee at home is that most of us need to have had our morning cup before we can face all the processes that go into making a good brew. The Aeropress, Chemex and V60 are a few of our long-time favourites and top choices for weekends but if you run a busy household (or small office) and typically aren't too patient while bleary-eyed — the Moccamaster is for you.
So we've teamed up with our friends in Ahipara, The Huts, to giveaway a 3 night stay to help promote our top choice for an at-home, or small office, machine.
Convince your other-half, boss or perhaps most importantly - yourself (self-care!) to buy a Moccamaster sometime between now and the end of September and you'll get yourself in the draw to win 3 glorious nights away in Northland for two! Picture your seat on their hillside overlooking the waters of Ahipara - a small settlement at the southern end of Ninety Mile Beach, with the Tauroa Peninsula to the west, Herekino Forest to the east and some of the best surf Aotearoa has to offer down below. Yes, please.
Now you've seen those nice shots of where you could end up, some more on the machine itself
This might be the first time you've heard about them but Technivorm have been hand making Moccamasters in the Netherlands since 1969 - see their factory below. Over the last 50 years they've stocked over 10 million cafe's and kitchens with their brewers, making them one of most recognised speciality coffee brewers on the market. They are easy-to-use, reliable and durable machines that will serve you well.
We currently stock their long standing CDT and KBG models all of which brew 1.25L (approx 5-6 of our Taus mugs) quietly and efficiently in 6 minutes flat — straight into its thermos jug, or glass carafe, so you can enjoy refills all morning long. If you choose the KBG glass carafe model know that the hot-plate has two settings, allowing you to hold your coffee between 80° and 85°. After 100 minutes the hot-plate will automatically turn off. All you need to do it pop a filter and the coffee in, hit the on button and away it goes — while you shower, get food into the kids, read the paper, weed the garden whatever you like!
To get you started we throw in an extra box of filters and a bag of our Aotea Blend with every purchase. Follow this link to take a closer look at the Moccamaster.
