This coffee maker has a few plastic parts containing BPA, which can be a deal breaker for people who want their appliances to be completely free of harmful substances. Fortunately, these parts never touch the water or the coffee grounds, so you won't ever need to worry about any BPA ending up in your coffee. See More
The Mocaster operates at 196–205º F, allowing it to extract the best possible flavor from your ground coffee. The extraction is further improved by the per-immersion drip-style system, which helps the coffee bloom. This creates a drink that has a deep flavor and feels very smooth to drink, but isn't overpowering. See More
The thermal carafe is not transparent and has no viewing window, making it difficult to visually determine how much coffee is left. Switching to a glass (or non-thermal) carafe isn't ideal because of the hot plate — it shuts off after the coffee is done brewing, so the coffee won't stay warm in non-thermal carafes. See More
The overall coffee quality this machine brew is on par with what the other coffee makers in its price range offer. Thanks to its pre-heater the machine manages to ensure that the water temperature is sufficient enough to extract the correct amount of coffee from the grounds. See More
