Pros and Cons
Pros of the machine
The Mochamaster is a thoughtfully designed machine. Installation is a breeze as the coffee maker comes assembled and all you have to do is fix the brew head, filter, and covers. It is also simple to operate. Once you add the ground coffee and water, just a few clicks and your coffee is brewing. You don’t have to worry about hot liquids coming into prolonged contact with plastics and slowly poisoning you. All the plastics used are BPA/BPS free. The brewer comes with removable parts so they can be cleaned, maintained and even replaced. 10 cups mean that the coffee maker is perfect when you have company or for use in an office.
Plus points of the brew
The beginning of good coffee is the grind. Use a good quality grinder to get a medium grind, and you should get rich, full-bodied coffee sure to satiate your taste buds. The pulse action along with the temperature control seems to do the trick here. If you rinse the carafe with hot water before use, your coffee should stay warm for around five hours.
