My understanding after reviewing coffeegeek.com and e-mailing people at Sweet Maria's and Boyd (US importers of Technivorm) is that the MoccaMaster and Clubline models are identical in terms of innards. The CD stands for \"Clement design\" which is an aesthetic improvement and redesign over the clubline (KB models) which boasts the original \"Smitdesign\". The other difference is that the CD model does not have the 3 drip switches on the filter holder as does the clubline and CD thermal models. All models now have the 9 showerheads.

The only preference is whether you want a glass carafe with the mixing tube for better coffee stratification (as coffee brewing weakens towards the end) with a hot plate or whether you prefer a thermal carafe that does not have a mixing tube. The other thing to consider is that the thermal models are not vaccuum sealed therefore the coffee drips in open air into the open carafe since the screw top prevents you from placing the thermal carafe under the filter during brewing.

I hope this helps.

This is my minor beef about the Technivorm thermal carafe: It would have been easy to tighten the interface between the brew head and the carafe - and yet you have coffee traveling several inches through open air into the carafe.

The Newco OCS-8 and OCS-12 win bigger kudos for designing a better brewer/carafe interface... brilliant.

And better tasting coffee I think.

I can't say anything about the Technivorm but I am a happy camper with an OCS 12 pour over. Easy to use , few parts , simple , great hot coffee , good carafe , brews fast...what more could I ask for.

There are no timers , clocks , extensive mechanics just two switches ( on and off , though it automatically switches off after the brew cycle), the main unit body , the filter holder , carafe lid and carafe.

Got mine at www.oughtred.com/ and many thanks to Michael for his great customer service on the unit and his bean which I like.
