Moccamaster 79212 KBTS Review
For a lot of us, our daily grind couldn’t begin until we have our first cup of hot coffee. But things were very much different in the past. Placing the kettle on the stove, unscrewing your Red Mountain jar, was our daily morning routine. However, the boom in the number of outlets that sells fresh ground brews has undoubtedly made us a lot more particular about our morning coffee. As a result, the sales of coffee brewers have vastly increased and as per a research from Mintel, every fifth home now has a coffee machine of their own.
But no matter if you want to be one of them or simply want to switch to a better brewing machine, I have an excellent option for you to save you from all the confusion of hundreds of models available in the market- the Moccamaster 79212 KBTS 8-Cup Coffee Brewer with Thermal Carafe.
