The first thing that happens after you turn on your Moccamaster's power switch is the heating mechanism that heats the water inside and allows it to pass through. After about 30 seconds you can see the hot water going from the glass tube towards the outlet arm. You can then observe that the coffee in the filter basket starts to flow by spraying on it. Moccamaster brews coffee at an ideal temperature of 92 to 96 degrees Celsius, which is the ideal temperature range for brewing the perfect cup of coffee. If it were colder, the coffee would taste sour, and if it was brewed at higher water temperatures, it would be bitter.
Because water that is colder than it should be prevents you from getting the full aroma of the coffee. Likewise, water temperature that is higher than necessary will burn the coffee and cause you to have a more bitter taste.
Now you start to see the ground coffee getting wet and slowly starting to drip into your jug. Depending on how much you brew, it will take 4 to 6 minutes to complete the brewing process. This time is necessary to extract all the aromas that will give you a perfect coffee taste.
The coffee will flow from the bottom into the jug and brewing will be completed for the best coffee taste. Now your coffee is brewed! It's time to enjoy a perfect cup of coffee; Enjoy your meal!
In which glass should filter coffee be placed?
When it comes to filter coffee, choosing the right cup is also important. Generally, thick glass or porcelain glasses are preferred. Thick glass cups help the coffee maintain its temperature longer. Additionally, porcelain cups are also among the preferred ones. Thin, tall glasses or mugs are among the other options in which you can enjoy your filter coffee. In summary, you can maximize your filter coffee experience by crowning it with a glass that suits your personal taste.

Moccamaster filter coffee bean grinding setting
The success of the coffee brewing process is strictly dependent on the correct grinding settings. If your brewing equipment has a paper or metal filter, medium ground coffee should be preferred. This ensures ideal extraction during the time the coffee is in contact with water. However, for those who prefer medium-fine ground coffee, choosing this setting can also produce excellent results. If a filter coffee machine is used, medium-fine grinding ensures that the flavor and aroma are fully captured. This way, you can always enjoy a perfect cup of coffee with your Moccamaster.
