Setting Up Your Moccamaster Coffee Brewer

  • 2 min read

Congratulations on bringing home your new Moccamaster coffee brewer!

When you open your box, you'll find the brewer components methodically organized within to avoid wasteful packaging. Assembly is easy once you familiarize yourself with the parts. The images below will guide you through assembling a glass carafe model but will also provide helpful guidance for our other brewer styles.


Person opening Moccamaster box and holding instruction manual

After opening the box and removing the instruction manual, you'll find a small cardboard insert containing most of your brewer's smaller components. Putting that aside, you'll see a large cardboard insert with your coffee brewer inside. 


Removing parts from a Moccamaster coffee brewer box

Carefully pull the cardboard insert with the brewer out of the box. On a flat surface, unfold the cardboard to reveal your machine. Remove it from the cardboard, and if your model has a glass carafe, remove its protective plastic bag and place it back on the hotplate.


Removing cardboard packaging from a Moccamaster coffee brewer

Now open the smaller cardboard container and remove your brew basket, brew basket lid, water reservoir lid, water outlet arm, and brown coffee scoop.


Opening up the parts container for a new Moccamaster coffee brewer

Locate the silver 9-hole outlet arm and attach it to the top of your water reservoir. Place the lid on the water reservoir.*


 Placing the 9-hole water outlet arm on the Moccamaster coffee brewer

Place your brew basket on the brew basket bracket directly over the carafe, then add its lid.


Placing the brew basket lid on a Moccamaster coffee brewer

If you have a KBGT, CDGT, or CDT Grand thermal carafe model, you will need to use the included footplate for proper functionality. Attach the flat, black footplate to the base of the brewer by tilting the brewer back slightly and sliding the footplate under so that it connects with the edge under the brewer.
