Summary: I bought the Krups KM7000 through Amazon.com and have had it for a few days. This is my first grind and brew machine, so I cannot compare against other grind-and-brew machines. Although, I've owned a stand-alone blade grinder and a typical drip coffee maker for a long time.
Summary: This was the best coffee maker until it began leaking a year after purchasing. This coffee maker allows you to make coffee to your liking based on settings for brew strength and grind size. I'd purchase another to save me from using a separate grinder if it didn't break so soon.
Beware...Krups provides VERY poor customer service

Summary: I've owned this baby for 11 months. Here's the rundown: Pros: - Great tasting coffee, if you buy the gold filter. Not as good without it - Grinds really well, and is not overly loud - Very easy to clean Cons: - Broke after 11 months. The grinds don't make it all the way to the basket.
Good Cup of Coffee........ But Buyer Beware (5 Stars on Making Coffee, 3 Stars on Machine)

Summary: First off this coffee pot makes a wonderful cup of coffee. I have had a Cuisinart gring and brew for years. Finally when mine went out (after about 4 years of use) I decided to look for another grind / brew coffee pot.
Summary: We bought this machine back in November before it was available at retailers. I love this machine as it is so convenient to wake up to coffee that is ground with a burr grinder. It is a bit messy but I don't mind that and we use the noise as our alarm clock.
