How to brew your coffee with a Moccamaster
Combining convenience, quality, affordability and style… it’s understandable why Moccamaster filter brewing is described as the finest filter coffee machine in the world.
We have various colours of Moccamaster Classic Brewers available on our site. See colours here.
Step 1: Refer to brew ratios
Determine your coffee to water ratios for batch brewing by the matrix below:
You can choose whatever batch size you like but just ensure you use a 17 : 1 water to coffee ratio.
Step 2: Fill water reservoir
Fill the water reservoir using cold filtered water to the required level.
Step 3: Weigh and Grind Coffee
Coffee grind should be similar to a plunger/french press grind. Larger batches will require a slightly courser grind setting.
Step 4: Fold edges of filter and pre-wet
Fold the edges of the filter over and place filter into the filter holder. Rinse the filter with hot water to remove the paper flavour from the filter. Discard the rinsing water. Discard the rinsing water.
Step 5: Set the filter holder to closed
This will allow no drip flow at the beginning so we can pre-wet and stir the grinds to promote total immersion.
Step 6: Turn on the Moccamaster
Switch on the Moccamaster and wait for the water to dispense from the spout.
Step 7: Stir the grinds, open the filter
Once water has begun dispensing, with a spoon stir the water to saturate ALL of the coffee. Once all coffee is wet, set the filter basket to open.
Step 8: Allow brew to finish
The Moccamaster will continue to dispense water over the coffee until the water reservoir is empty. Once all of the water has dispensed, the Moccamaster will automatically stop the brewing.
The hot-plate will hold the brewed coffee between 80-85oC for a maximum of 40 minutes before automatically switching off.
Step 9: Enjoy
Place in your favourite cup and enjoy. The hot-plate will hold the brewed coffee between 80-85oC for a maximum of 40 minutes before automatically switching off.
