Cuisinart Grind 'n Brew DGB-700BC

Coffee is one of those things that could take up to fifteen or twenty minutes to prepare, if you’re into that sort of thing. Luckily that doesn’t have to be the case. What could be better to exemplify convenience in coffee making, then a Cuisinart? Sure, Mr. Coffee would get the job done, but don’t chump your coffee like that. Free trade gourmet beans deserve much better.

Keeping beans in their natural state right until brewing is the only way to insure the full flavor release from each bean. The Burr grinder gives a wonderfully consistent grind with no wasted coffee. Even the steadiest hands are prone to spilling finely ground coffee.

Early morning my not be the best time to operate unfamiliar machinery (especially if a morning cup hasn’t been swigged), so the lining up of arrows to get the machine to work right can trip one up, but only the first couple times. The thermal carafe keeps the coffee nice and cozy until ready to enjoy without expending any excess electricity. This machine is a welcomed addition to any morning routine.
