Designed by the coffee experts at Seattle-based Motif, this pour-over-style automatic brewer is the culmination of 25 years of brewing experience. A state-of-the-art water heater quickly reaches and holds the ideal brew temperature. Pre-infusion triggers "blooming" to release the unique flavors of every type of coffee.

  • Heats water to the industry-standard brewing temperature within 60 seconds, then maintains it between 197.6˚F and 204.8˚F throughout brew cycle.
  • Maintains water/coffee contact for 4–8 minutes for optimal flavor extraction.
  • Pre-infusion mode simulates the pour-over method as the showerhead dampens coffee grounds for 20 seconds to develop the fullest flavor.
  • Glass carafe keeps coffee warm on warming plate.
  • Separate heater for warming plate prevents overheating.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome coffee brewer ;) i too bought this in place of the moccamaster. it's half the price and works great! just as good as the other. brews fast, super hot great tasting coffee, auto shut off and still a basic machine. i returned the other one because for the money i just wasn't impressed. i am very happy with this and so glad i bought it. (the only thing i would change is making it a 10 cup capacity instead of 8)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly constructed parts prevents proper brewing As a home-brewing coffee connoisseur, I recently purchased this new-on-the-market model and was super excited to start brewing "golden cups" of coffee -- but t'was not to be. Not sure if it's just mine or how this model is constructed, but the way the lid of the carafe hits the drip release mechanism doesn't work consistently. You have to jiggle things around to get it to flow properly, and sometimes the flow stops altogether, causing the filter to overflow. Very disappointed in this, seeing as how this was supposed to be the affordable (and reliable, SCAA certified) alternative to the Moccamaster. I'm going to just return this and spend the $$ on the Moccamaster.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I purchased this coffee maker as well as the Technivorm Moccamaster because I wanted to compare the two. I am by no means a coffee expert, but based on several comparisons, I’d say the Technivorm is very slightly better than the Motif in terms of taste and quality of the coffee brewed. However, when considering the price difference, the Motif is the better choice overall. There are also more features with the Motif such as the decalcification sensor and the pre-infusion mode. Overall, I’d say this machine would be great choice for anyone who enjoys great coffee and wants to stay in the $100-$200 price range.
