Technivorm on a Timer?

Coffee preparation techniques besides espresso like pourover.

Has anyone successfully put their Moccamaster Technivorm on a timer?

It's getting harder and harder to take care of all of the stuff that needs to be done before I can make coffee.
It would be so nice to have it ready when I first get up.
I know it would mean grinding the beans at night, but it might be worth it.

I'd turn it on, unplug it, count to 10, and then plug it back in. If it starts making coffee than it should be fine on a timer. It's a pretty basic machine so I assume it should be fine on a timer.

I tried it on my Technivorm. It stays on when unplugged, wait and plug back in. However, the Technivorm (newer models) does have a time-out function that turns off the hot plate after 40mins. Something to consider when setting up your timing.

My Technivorm doesn't have a hotplate, but I decided against the whole idea because I realized my thermal carafe wouldn't be warm enough in morning. I always fill it with hot water while I weight and grind beans, soak the filter, fill the reservoir.
Even so I have to put my half and half in the microwave before adding it to my coffee, so....yes, I've spoiled myself :-))))
