  1. Well…
    From what I’ve seen, the Cuisinart Grind-and-Brew systems seem to go over pretty well. As drip coffee makers, they’re decent enough.
    I’d really not recommend it, though. These all-in-one machines – whether a bean-to-cup coffee machine, or a combined copy machine/fax/scanner/printer always seem like a pretty good idea. But then a component for one function dies. And if it’s poorly designed, that might take the entire device out of commission. If it’s better designed, then you just have to get a replacement for that one function. Either way, you’ve lost flexibility. And you’re probably losing a fair bit of quality in the process.
    There’s no need for your grinding and brewing mechanism to be one device. Get them separate, you’ll be happier for it in the long run.

  2. i agree with mike koening. don’t get a single all in one machine. get a separate grinder. they are cheap, and you can easily adjust the grind for different types of brew. i have a grinder, a french press, a pour over, and a stove top espresso. they are all simple machines that will never break down, they are very cheap, and allow me great flexibility in how i brew my coffee.

  3. Its called a batch brewer. A popular brand is Moccamaster, and yes they’re awesome.

    Its filter coffee run in batches. You can brew 1–10 cups at a time. This type of coffee will help you stay alert & level for longer than espresso. You can adjust the strength by controlling the ratio of water to grounds.
    The money you save here will allow you to purchase a decent grinder. The grinder is THE MOST IMPORTANT part of brewing. There are plenty of terrible grinders in the low price points and also medium, but there are a few diamonds in the rough that make a difference.
    This is where we turn to Japan. The Fuji Cafe Royal R220

    Small, compact, quiet. Loaded with 67mm metal burrs, is quite impressive for this price range and size (5kg)

    Another option is the Kalita Next G

    Sitting side by side the Fuji. This model has ceramic burrs that don’t allow static to build up inside the machine. A very cool feature for an electric grinder. Most people opt for hand grinders as they use ceramic burrs. These are usually small, but not on this machine.

    These grinders will not much hold coffee back in the dosing basket, so all the coffee ends up being delivered and used per round. Meaning fresher grounds and none being used in other batches or just wasted.
    Getting these two options will run you to about 1k USD. An absolute bargain for the quality. Try batch out if you haven’t already and leave espresso to when you’re in front of a knowledgeable Barista who’s in front of a machine & grinder that might have cost 10k+.

  4. The best option is no machine at all. A hand grinder and a pour over cone will do far better than any of those “bean to cup” machines. (Even a $2.99 plastic Melitta cone)
    Those machines are generally nice bits of engineering, but have to make compromises in cup quality. You certainly don’t gain any quality with all that additional cost.
