Amazon - Grind and Brew Coffee Makers
You love coffee? Here are a bunch of models you may be interested in.
There`s nothing quite like a pot of coffee from freshly ground beans. BTW,
take the reviews with a grain of salt, they`re simply my take on each.
Here they are from the least expensive to the most (also, be aware that you have
a choice of colors with most of them. Personally, I`d get the black one
though, since coffee beans tend to stain white plastic a brownish color over
time). Oh yeah, shipping is free on all of them. Considering each
trip to Starbucks seems to set you back about $3.75, these things may pay for
themselves in quick order and even start to save you money rather quickly.
- Krups 625.42 10-Cup Combination Grinder & Brewer with Programmable Timer
for $49.97. This is apparently a nice looking, small unit, but some
people have had issues with the reliability and ease of cleaning. Might
not be the best choice.
- Melitta MEMB1B Mill & Brew 10-Cup Coffee Maker for $79.99. Seems
like a good unit, though these blade grinder ones tend to be a bit
inconsistent with the size of grounds. Also, a few people have had
problems with the beans not sitting in the middle of the filter.
Overall, seems like a good choice for the price though.
- Cuisinart DGB-300BK Automatic Grind and Brew 10-Cup Coffeemaker with free
Carafe by mail for $99.99. From what I understand, cleaning is a bit
difficult on this unit, and there are some quality issues.
- Capresso 453.01 CoffeeTeam Luxe 10-Cup Electronic Coffeemaker with Conical
Burr Grinder for $199. I have the older version of this and absolutely
love it. The professional quality burr grinder gives you more even
grinds at a lower grinding heat for better tasting coffee. Cleanup is a
snap. The only drawback is it`s easy to clog the chute if you use really
really oily beans. I`d easily buy this one again.
- Briel EG82CAB Portofino Combination Pump Espresso Machine with Built-In
Burr Grinder for $199.97. Kind of nice in that you can do coffee,
espresso, and cappuccino. Some of the reviews are negative though.
