    This would be a 5 star machine and is my 2nd one, but….
    The down side is daily cleaning and I’ve had to replace the grinder lid twice on the first machine (had it 5 yrs). Other wise. I love fresh ground beans and coffee in the morning so it’s worth it to me.

    So I purchased this to replace my Cuisinart CHW-12 Coffee Plus 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker with Hot Water System, Black/Stainless. I was very pleased with the *coffeemaker* component of this latter (its hot water system being another matter), and was looking for a similar coffeemaker that also had a grind and brew function. I have had it now for just shy of a year, and am almost entirely pleased with it. Let me address the pros and cons, both as I see them and as they have been discussed in other reviews:

    Pros:
    (1) This coffeemaker is able to produce an excellent cup of coffee in very little time.
    (2) The grind function allows you to control precisely how much coffee you want ground. Other models – such as the Krups KM7005 Grind and Brew coffeemaker – essentially have a reservoir for beans that are ground according to your selection of coffee-strength. Effectively, this means it uses a timer to determine how much coffee to grind. In my experience, this resulted in an imperfect and – more importantly – inconsistent cup of coffee. This Cuisinart coffeemaker, by contrast, will grind precisely how much coffee you put in the grinder. I have been surprised to find no residue, or almost no residue, in the grinder after each use. This allows you to control the strength of your coffee, and produce a consistent cup.
    (3) You can easily turn the grinder off. I keep a stash of ground coffee at the ready for those days when I’m running behind and want to save a step. It doesn’t save a lot of time – but it’s a nice feature.

    Cons
    (1) A number of people have noted in their reviews that this coffeemaker is a lot of work to clean. While I don’t find this in fact to be the case, it does require you to wash, in addition to the components common to any coffeemaker, the grinder after each use. The only systems with which I am familiar that do not require this are those with a coffee reservoir; the drawback of these systems, as I note above, is that it is difficult to get a consistently good cup of coffee out of them. So I think this is a have your cake or eat it predicament: if you want a consistently good cup of coffee from a grind and brew coffeemaker, you’re probably going to need to buy one requiring additional cleaning.
    (2) I was surprised to find how much I missed the carafe temperature control function of my old Cuisinart CHW-12 coffeemaker. I find this grind and brew coffeemaker produces coffee that is slightly too hot for my taste. That said, it is a minor drawback, easily corrected by waiting a few minutes after pouring a cup before drinking it.
    (3) Unlike the CHW-12, there is no transparent window that allows you to see how much water is in the reservoir from the side of the coffeemaker. Instead, you have to look down into the water reservoir, at a series of steps marking 2, 4, 6, 8 and so forth. This makes it difficult to fill the reservoir to, say, 3 cups or 5 cups or 7 cups etc. Why? Because when you are looking down, you lose the perspective necessary to determine when the water is halfway between, say, 4 and 6. This is a minor inconvenience that can be worked around by trial and error.
    (4) I agree with those reviewers who say the grinder is not large enough to make an entire pot of strong coffee. This doesn’t make the least difference for me since I only make half a pot per day. To make half a pot of coffee at my desired strength, however, I do need to fill the coffee grinder well more than 1/2 full. Upshot: a 12 cup pot of coffee is likely to be weaker than I would want it. So: if you want 12 cups every morning of strong coffee, this grind and brew coffee maker is likely to fall short of your expectations. If, on the other hand, you only occasionally make a full pot of coffee, I’d recommend that, on those occasions, you turn the grinder off and use the appropriate amount of pre-ground coffee instead.

    Overall, I would deduct a 1/2 star for cons (2) and (3). That not being an option, however, I have given this coffeemaker a 5 star rating since 4 stars would certainly not do credit to its many fine features.

    **UPDATE 05/12/2020**

    I have had this unit for just over a year. I stand by my original assessment. It is far and away the best coffee maker I have ever purchased, at least for my purposes.

    The good: I love this coffee maker and the quality of the coffee it makes is great. I chose the thermal carafe over a glass pot to avoid the horrible burnt flavor you get over time as the coffee sits. The thermal pot does a great job of keeping your coffee hot, you just need to preheat the carafe with some hot water, which I do while the grinder grinds.

    The not so good: The grinder living in the same housing as the water goes in means the steam from the water heating up to brew gets into the grinder and turns any leftover coffee residue into soggy muck. So to prevent a sticky mess, I leave the top open to are dry as soon as the coffee is done brewing. Also, if you forget to empty the grinds basket, your life is going to suck for a bit as you clean up all the grinds overflow.

    Despite the two big downsides, I would recommend this coffee maker for most people. Would I buy it again? I might, but I might also spend more for a similar style machine with a separate housing for the grinder.

    Es un muy buen producto a muy buen precio, solo le cambiaría el seguro que detiene el filtro ya que no es lo suficientemente fuerte y se bota, pero lo solucioné usando unas cuñas de cartón.

    Buena capacidad y elegante su diseño exterior.
    El diseño de la boca de plástico de la jarra, está mal diseñada. Si quieres servirte de manera normal, se derrama el café y ensucia la superficie en dónde realizas el servicio. Si deseas que no derrame, debes de servir el café muy despacio, además si la cafetera está llena, esto es un problema.

    My girlfriend (now ex) at the time always complained her coffee wasn’t as good as the coffee I make at my home so I did some research and decided on this maker.

    When I set up in her home for her it was real easy to use and really comprehensive to understand the instructions. I personally like to grind my own beans and the fact this does that for you and puts it in the removable/reusable filter. That was great.

    It brews fast, and smells great when I used my beans. I enjoyed the taste of the coffee very much. Once you go from paper filters to reusable filters you realize you can’t go back. Paper filters always have a paper taste to your coffee.

    I can’t say much about the cleaning other than doing the basic which is run a pot of water through the machine before first use. But judging how my ex kept her old coffee maker clean… I doubt she will keep it clean herself. But I am not stranger to cleaning these things.

    If you feel your coffee maker is slowly getting worse and worse. Remove the filter in the water tank, add descaler to the the water per what the descaler instructions say. Brew a pot, dump. Clean the pot out, add clean cool water, brew a second pot of water. Dump that out. Then brew a third pot of water and dump that out like step two.

    To clean the reusable filter, please don’t put it in a dishwasher. This can damage it. Take a small pot of water and bring it to a boil. then lower the heat to a simmer. In your sink while waiting for your pot of water to come to temperature use cool water and a soft brush or tooth brush to make sure you remove all the stuck on grinds. Once it is, add the basket to the simmering warm water and turn off the heat. Let it soak till it cools down. Remove the basket and rinse with water brushing with a tooth brush again. This will remove the micro particles from the brewing process. Let it air dry in an open space. Then once dry you can use it again. I suggest for serious coffee makers do this after every use. But for the average coffee user once a week is fine.

    I absolutely love this new coffee maker. It’s so perfect for my needs. I live alone but love a good cup of coffee. The fresh ground feature has minimal mess but amazing taste. The first one I received had a broken grinder but they replaced it by the next day. I hadn’t even put the old one into a box to return it yet. This is a definite 5 star product and 5 star company. Love it!!
