Product Description

For those of us who consider coffee not just a simple "drink", but rather, a cornerstone of our daily life and the fuel that keeps our lifes going (take it from a father of twins that runs his own business!!). The Coffee you need from the name you know and trust, Cuisinart. This deluxe coffeemaker not only helps you start your day right, by brewing rich, delicious coffee starting with grinding the beans, but also keeps you going during the day, by keeping it hot all day, (so you can keep your eyes open until you clock out). With fully automatic controls including an auto shutoff, you can program this coffeemaker to grind the beans and make your fresh coffee any time of day. And lets say that you just want a few cups of coffee (not 12!), well with the Brew Pause feature, this coffeemaker can make between 1 and 4 cups of coffee without wasting the other 8 cups. And when it comes time to clean up, this coffeemaker has a 2 piece grinding assembly, and a filter basket that are completely dishwasher safe. For those of us who dont just want another cheap coffee maker, this Cuisinart Coffeemaker is what you have been waiting for. (Description written and copyrighted by Seller GottaLoveMovies)

This is a great coffee maker.

I love the taste of the coffee that is brewed from freshly ground beans.

It is a terrible design flaw.

The machine works OK. There's nothing wrong with it. But basically it makes what I call "truck-stop coffee." This is coffee for the non-discriminating coffee drinker. Now I'm not a coffee snob - I'll drink truck stop coffee - but I don't want it at home! I've been making coffee with a burr grinder and a cone-style filter since the 1970's and I've grown used to a cup of gourmet coffee in the morning. When my Krups Grind and Brew died (excellent gourmet coffeemaker by the way), I decided to give the Cuisinart a try because it was cheaper.

I've had this coffeemaker for two weeks and I'm already shopping for a replacement. First of all, it uses flat-bottom "basket" style coffee filters (Mr. Coffee-type filters), not the cone-style filters that are well known to produce better coffee. This info was not in any of the online descriptions or reviews. Secondly, it does not have a grinder--not like the Capresso of Krups machines. Instead, it has a rotary blade chopper. Again, this info did not show up in any of the online descriptions or reviews. A blade chopper is not as good as a burr grinder, but you can still make a decent pot of coffee with a blade chopper as long as you are skillful in using it. With the Cuisinart, though, you have no control of the chopper so your skill or lack thereof is immaterial. Read on.

To make a pot, put a fresh filter into the basket and pour water into the reservoir. Easy and straightforward. Next, lift the coffee chopper from the top of the machine, pry open the top with a fingernail then add the correct amount of beans to the chopper. This means you have to measure the beans for every pot.

After having several drip coffee makers (both inexpensive and VERY expensive), this is the best for the following reasons:

- low noise grinder
- makes a full pot in less time
- easy to clean
- at a glance look at remaining coffee (can't do this with a carafe)
- reasonable price, good warranty
- Best of all, it makes a delicious cup of coffee

The old $10 Proctor-Silex coffee maker in our office here in Afghanistan had seen better days. And even though we used bottled water and ground our own beans, the flavor was just barely passable. A few people I knew had a Cuisinart unit similar to this one and all said it was a darned good maker of the java. So I convinced the other coffee chronics to chip in with me and buy this as an office morale booster. We weren't prepared for the huge difference in coffee quality that we got. It was like our taste buds had taken the last several months off and suddenly returned to duty.

This coffee maker produces some of the best coffee that you can find this side of a mom-and-pop barista joint. Every pot is consistently made and always delicious. Plus it's easy enough to use that we haven't yet dorked up making a pot. The 12-cup carafe is big enough to handle the chore of serving four serious drinkers. The built in bean grinder does a perfect job pulverizing the beans. Although the instructions say to clean out the grinder after each use, we usually do it once a day (about 3-4 pots) and haven't had any issues.

This maker excels in one are that most people will not have to worry about: keeping out dust. Afghanistan is covered in a fine, talcum powder dust that gets into most everything. The fit and finish of this Cuisinart is really good; we've had no problem with it sneaking into the grinder, reservoir or basket areas.

So we are completely satisfied with this unit. And yes, our morale has been boosted considerably.

The Cuisinart DCC-1250SA Grind and Brew is by far the best coffee machine I have ever owned. The coffee is so fresh with the grind feature and the water is a great temparature. This machine has saved me hundreds of dollars in two short months as I get the highest quality coffee in my own kitchen. I feel bad for Tim Hortons and Dunkin Donuts as they have lost a customer. I highly recommend this product! It is so good, I purchased a second for my parents who are thrilled with the product.

I purchased this item today at a local big-box retail chain (a bit cheaper than Amazon's price), and have used it a few times. Here are my initial observations.
- The coffee maker is packaged well, and the instructions are succinct and written in plain English. I spent about 15 minutes on unpacking, programming, and setup.
- The filter basket is accessible through a door in the front of the unit, making for easy access if the coffee maker is located under cabinets. However, to add water or beans the unit must be pulled out from under the counter to open the door on top.
- I was slightly annoyed that the coffee maker did not include a reusable filter (this may vary depending on where it is sold). A small pack of paper filters were included.
- The coffee brews slightly slower than my old machine, but comes out hotter. I've only tried one brand of beans so far, but the coffee tasted much better than it did with my old machine (a Mr. Coffee 12 cup, about 5 years old). I followed the instructions recommendation of one scoop of beans per cup of water.
- I could not find a setting to adjust the temperature of the warmer; this is something that many cheaper coffee makers I have owned had and I found it helpful.
- The grinder is loud, but no louder than other stand-alone coffee grinders I've owned. Since it only runs for a minute or two, I can deal with a little noise.

Overall, I am impressed with the quality of coffee this machine produces and the ease of set up. It is a good mid-range coffee machine that should be suitable for daily household use.
