Moccamaster Technivorm & Bonavita 8-cup Brewer
By Valorie King, Owner & Coffee Maven
On Monday, 1/7/2019, I did a Facebook Live showing the two American drip coffee brewers we personally like to us, the Moccamaster by Technivorm and the 8-cup pourover-style brewer by Bonavita. Both use the stainless steel carafe to keep the coffee warm.
One of the things I forgot to do when measuring the TDS (total dissolved solids) on the live video was to swirl the pots before testing the TDS. On Tuesday, 1/8/2019, I used only the Bonavita. I did remember to swirl the pot before checking the TDS. While I did lower the amount of coffee I used to lower the TDS measurement from 1.32, I did use a different coffee, 2018 Christmas Blend. I will be doing this again using the Rwanda Hingakawa as my consistent coffee so that I am only changing one variable at a time.
Here is the video from Monday, 1/7/2019 for your viewing pleasure!
From today, 1/8/2019...It's too strong...but then again, I personally like my coffee strong! Next pot, less coffee.
