A Note About This Technivorm Moccamaster From Sagebrush's Owner:
As owners of a coffee company, our collection of brewers is quite extensive. It's not only necessary to know everything about all the different ways to brew coffee, but it's something we enjoy as well. However, when it comes to our every day, first thing in the morning cup of coffee, we always turn to our Technivorm coffeepot. This machine is a true workhorse, always brewing at the exact right temperature (the #1 reason other coffee pots stop producing great coffee) in record time. Our Technivorm has lasted for years, and we have never considered anything else for the Sagebrush Shop. The good folks at Technivorm said it best when they put this quote in their marketing material:
The Technivorm Moccamaster is backed by a 5-year warranty. This should be the last coffee brewer you will ever buy, one that should last your lifetime, when cleaned and descaled properly.
