Summary: Wasn't sure how using fresh beans would be. Now that we have purchased one that grinds the beans we have freshly ground coffee every weekend. On the weekdays we just turn off the grinder and use can ground coffee. Coffee maker is easily set up the night before and we have coffeee when we wake.
Summary: It works fine grinding coffee, and then making it straight from those grounds. However, when you don't grind beans, it needs a block to put in to keep water/condesation out of the upper bean holding section.
Summary: I LOVE this coffee maker!! It is simple to use and has wonderful features including being able to program your morning coffee and auto shut off. You also have the ablility to grind beans if you desire along with the gold filter which saves you money!! Wonderful coffee!!!
Summary: I finally determined that my old coffee pot was the problem I was experiencing with my morning coffee and not the brand coffee I was using. It seems that the "old pot" just wasn't holding the water in the brew basket long enough for the coffee to brew.
Summary: I just received this coffeemaker today and have already tried it out. It is GREAT. Itgrinds and brews the coffee quickly. I tcan also use already ground coffee and ithas different settings to choose from as to how long the heating element can stay on. it is vary user freiendly.
Summary: My first ever coffee making machine. Not sure how working coffee machine make dark coffee. Tastes good need more milk than expected. Wife says drink coffee same way, I say need more milk. No milk in house right now, must go out for more. Thank you thank you thank you for coffee machine maker.
Summary: I search a long time for a white grind and brew coffee maker- Cuisinart is just about the only one who make it. I like the set up of this coffee maker. The filter door pops open with a button and is easy to fill. The pot lid is easy to get on and off for washing.
