Reviews around grind (4.25 of 5)

  • I love fresh ground, fresh brewed coffee first thing in the morning
  • I did not realize is that this machine is incredibly loud when grinding beans.

  • There is no compsiring a fresh ground and brewed cup of coffee
  • Coffee grounds everywhere and a clogged grinding mechanism!You rinse and dry the unholy mess, trying to get grounds out of all the little grinder parts, and start over

Reviews around taste (4.08 of 5)

  • the thermal pot keeps his coffee warm and doesn't get that stale over processed taste.
  • Not much of a coffee snob but the coffee tastes great to me.
  • I certainly recommend it to anyone who wants great tasting coffee.
  • Any way I like that it grounds the coffee for the fresh taste
  • Apparently, the blade in the grinder of our machine spins so fast that it actually scorches the beans giving the coffee a burnt, bitter taste

Reviews around thing (3.72 of 5)

  • I can't stress enough what a crappy thing this is to wake up to.
  • All would be fine except the damn thing leaks coffee all over the place.
  • The only negative thing I will say about the carafe is that as others have noted the coffee does not pour out of it easily
  • Having now tried this machine, I cannot find one good thing to say about it
  • And that over time breeds bacteria ( not a good thing at all

Reviews around plastic (2.65 of 5)

  • Well, it's very thin plastic and broke within about a month of me getting this
  • I didn't worry too much since it says the plastic is BPA-free, but I feared that my first brew would taste like plastic
  • I have no idea what kind of cheap plastic smells like this
  • We are not gentle on them, but prefer over the burr grinder as we drink a flavored coffee and it does not clog like the burr did.
  • Well my guess is to meet a certain price point someone used cheaper plastic on the lid than the engineer specked to be

Reviews around moisture (2.54 of 5)

  • The moisture that is left in the machine is a hassle every single day.
  • I would highly recommend this grind-and-brew machine to anyone wanting a better cup o' joe.
  • The grinder also seems to keep moisture and clogs up with the beans (they aren't that oily)
  • First of all, the cuisines makes a great cup(s) of coffee from preground beans
  • It also just completely failed as somehow moisture from the coffee steam ended up its electronics.

Reviews around problem (2.09 of 5)

  • The first the the carafe was a problem and it leaked all over the

Reviews around stick (2.05 of 5)

  • First of all, the cuisines makes a great cup(s) of coffee from preground beans
  • Also if you do not thoroughly clean the grinder component after every use it gets stuck and does not push the coffee into the filter
  • I have had no problems with the grounds getting stuck, if I forget to clean it the night before, just rinsing everything before I use it seems to work and have had no problems.
  • n’t go through to the bottom half and can clean the debris before making coffee
  • it is a pain to clean, the coffee grinds get stuck inside the grinder and if you don't dry it completely, they build up

Reviews around design flaw (1.94 of 5)

  • Maybe I received a faulty unit but my guess it is a design flaw
  • It is amazing to me that anyone is happy with this coffee maker because of this design flaw.
  • Cuisinart needs to figure this design flaw out so completely irritating
  • First of all, the cuisines makes a great cup(s) of coffee from preground beans
  • Bottom line is if you want a reasonably convenient, fresh ground, cup of coffee that will never taste burnt and you are willng to invest 5 minutes in cleanup after each use, the Cuisinart Grind & Brew Thermal is in my opinion as good as it gets at a reasonable price point

Reviews around noise (1.69 of 5)

  • the other thing is if you program the pot and add the beans to the grinder at bed time they can get wet from condensation it has not caused a problem the grinder is just now making a really funny noise so I am going to have to replace the whole thing
  • We believe that the temperature of the coffee caused warping, beginning with faint crackling and popping noises during brews
  • I would highly recommend this grind-and-brew machine to anyone wanting a better cup o' joe.

Reviews around coffee snob (1.69 of 5)

  • I would highly recommend this grind-and-brew machine to anyone wanting a better cup o' joe.
  • This is not a great grinder by any means--the equivalent of a $20 blade grinder that coffee snobs wouldn't let near their single-source artisan coffee beans
  • I'm only a little bit of a coffee snob, so I think that this coffee pot is pretty good
  • Not much of a coffee snob but the coffee tastes great to me.

Reviews around people (1.58 of 5)

  • Another thing that struck me was how many people started out loving this product and went back and changed their review.
  • Many people complain about the "mess" that the grinder makes in the machine
  • (Too many people had complained about defective machines for me to feel comfortable otherwise.)I've been using this now for about a month and while I don't regret my purchase, there are days when I wish I had the old drip machine back
  • We have it too good here in the old U S of A. People complain about brew time
  • Prior to purchasing this I read many reviews that stated that people had issues using this coffee maker and getting everything to lined up so as not to make a mess

  • The quality of that water is as important as the quality of your coffee
  • If water doesn't taste good from the tap, it won't taste good in your coffee
  • That's why Cuisinart has added a water filter to the Grind & Brew Coffeemaker
  • The charcoal filter removes chlorine, bad tastes, and odors, for the purest coffee flavor, every time you brew
  • Element 2: Coffee While coffee is 98% water, all of the flavor comes from the beans
  • To achieve the same great taste you enjoy at a coffee bar, you need to use the same quality of coffee
  • Buy the beans fresh and whole, only about two weeks' supply at a time for maximum freshness
  • Once the coffee bean is broken, its flavor degrades very quickly
  • That's why the Grind & Brew grinds your coffee just prior to brewing
  • If it is not practical to buy small supplies, separate larger amounts of beans into one to two week portions immediately after purchase, and freeze them in airtight containers
  • The best way to maximize freshness is to minimize exposure to air, light, and moisture
  • So, once beans have been removed from the freezer, maintain them in a sealed container at room temperature, since damaging condensation occurs every time the beans are removed from the freezer or refrigerator
  • Note that some coffee experts advise against freezing dark-roast beans, because freezing can cause the oils to coagulate
  • Other experts disagree
  • We suggest you experiment and decide for yourself
  • Element 3: Grind The grind is critical for proper flavor extraction
  • If the grind is too fine, over-extraction and bitterness will result
  • Too fine a grind may also clog the filter
  • If grind is too coarse, the water will pass through too quickly and the maximum flavor will not be extracted
  • The Grind & Brew is preset for a medium grind, the optimal grind for this type of coffeemaker
  • Element 4: Proportion Coffee that is too strong or too weak is always a disappointment
  • Follow the recommended portions of ground coffee in the instructions included with every Grind & Brew, and later adjust the amount to suit your taste
  • The Grind & Brew makes up to twelve (12) 5-ounce cups of coffee
