This website is a wealth of information.  I have the Technivorm Moccamaster KB741 and prefer it over the thermal carafe models.  There is no downside to the hotplate if you drink your coffee within about 90 minutes.  On the other hand, the unpolished stainless interior of the thermal carafe models does very slightly change the flavor and the coffee does not stay as hot.  Taste difference is probably only noticeable in a side by side test.

I’m sure I could have done it myself, but it didn’t cost much extra to have it installed so I figured I’d leave it to the pros. 3 hours later he was finished. It probably would have taken me a a day to do it, so I figured it wasn’t worth the frustration.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, reputable garage door companies quote $250-300 per door just to hang it (if you provide the door and hardware), more if they’re installing an opener. If you’re having them provide the door, this doesn’t include the rather substantial upcharge (another $400ish per door for the ones I was considering).

It’s enough cheese that I’ve decided I’ll do the install myself and, thanks to a fellow FOGger, get the hardware at wholesale prices. Like you, I’m sure it will take me all weekend, when it would probably take a pro one day.

Thanks for that model number.

Yeah I agree.  You can't beat the convenience of just turning a machine on and walking away.  A manual pour over model seems like way to much work.  That's actually how my parents made their coffee in the 90s - they weren't even coffee snobs.  I think it was just what they happened to buy.  They used a whistling tea kettle to boil the water to pour over coffee grounds that were sitting on top of a carafe.

We currently use the KBGT 741, which is the large insulated steel carafe model. Prior to that, we had the smaller thermal carafe model. They're very good machines.

The only Chemex I'm familiar with is the classic pour-over, so it's kind of an apples to oranges comparison. It's no accident that the Chemex has been around as long as it has, and it has no shortage of fans. I just prefer to flick a switch and wander away for a couple minutes, then come back to a full pot of coffee.

 I hope you get well soon!  I'm looking forward to seeing a new video after you've fully recovered.

Thanks for those suggestions.  Was there a particular model of Technivorm Moccamaster?  I see several different models on Amazon.  Are you familiar with Chemix?  Is Moccamaster better than Chemix?

Best wishes Mr. Beckley, I hope you're up and going soon.

Technivorm Moccamaster. Or if your wallet isn't quite that deep, the Behmor 5393 Brazen Plus.

I know Mcmaster sells some forms of Phenolic. I can find the usual stuff but this has a coating or surface that seems different. The contrast in colors between the surface and the base material has benefits.
