I decided to reward myself with a good quality coffee maker after completing our kitchen remodel myself. Although I already had a decent coffee maker and a decent conical burr grinder, I had been routinely searching FBMP for a Moccamaster. Well I found a person selling a new one...actually two new ones, never opened. Although she was selling locally, I messaged her to ask if she would ship if I paid all shipping costs. She agreed. The first one arrived via UPS two days ago. The second one is in transit. So today or Monday. $222 each including shipping!! I bought one for each house. Currently, I'm using two identical Motif Essentials coffee makers. Again, one for our beach house. They are rebadged Melittas that are quite popular in Europe but not sold in the USA. They brew a great pot of coffee to the SCA Golden Cup standards. But the Moccamaster is the Holy Grail of coffee makers! The bonus is each one comes with a pound of whole bean coffee, a box of #4 filters and a package of descaler. I have the Baratza Encore grinder in our primary home and I recently bought a Delonghi Ariete grinder for the beach house. The coffee in the morning is worth every penny spent on this gear.
