The new KBGV, aka KBG Select, is an evolution of the classic KBG-AO. It offers a half-pot and full-pot selection, adjusting the flow of water as it brews. Just like the other Moccamasters it has a fast 6 minute brew cycle at the correct temperature ensures an excellent cup of coffee. The Moccamaster KBGV uses a glass container to brew coffee. High power, fast, quiet, metal housing and drip stop. The glass carafe is heated by a hot plate to keep the brewed coffee warm. The KBGV uses the auto-dripstop brew basket closing the basket when you remove the carafe.
