Anyone can brew a decent cup of coffee, given a coffee maker of some quality. Being Norwegian, we have the benefit of being able to check if the coffe maker meets the requirements of the European Coffee Brewing Centre, which also happens to be Norsk Kaffeinformasjon (Norwegian Coffee Information). Through their guidelines they actively work to make sure we have good coffee, from hosting national roasting and brewing competitions, and certifying approved coffee equipment. This can be grinders, coffee makers, cleaning accessories and so on.
Technivorm Moccamaster is the coffee maker of choice of most every Scandinavian home, and have been making their mark on the international circuit, for decades. This handmade coffe maker has met the approval of not only the European Coffee Brewing Centre, but also mine! I’ve still not met anyone who given a few, simple directions, couldn’t brew with Moccamaster.
