Inspired by professionals and designed for connoisseurs, KRUPS products have been built with three key attributes in mind: Passion, Precision and Perfection. The KRUPS KM700552 Grind and Brew coffee maker embodies the mastery of the key components to the perfect cup of coffee: the grind, the coffee-to-water ratio, the brew temperature and contact time. Featuring a conical steel burr grinder recognized by coffee connoisseurs as the best method of preparing whole beans and 5 grind levels to allow adjustments from fine to coarse, the KRUPS Grind and Brew coffee maker takes the most out of coffee beans to deliver a full-bodied coffee. Its 3 levels of coffee strength: mild, medium and strong along with the aroma function for more intense extraction and the number of cups selection ensures a complete control on the brewing process. Control and convenience are at the heart of the KRUPS KM700552 Grind and Brew coffee machine. Programmable, the KRUPS coffee maker can be set to automatically brew, the warming plate then maintains the temperature in the carafe for up to 2 hours after which the machine shuts off automatically for safety and convenience. And for these who are in a hurry the pause and serve feature enables you to remove the carafe during the brew cycle and pour an early cup. With the KRUPS KM700552 Grind and Brew coffee machine prepare from 2 to 10-cups of intense coffee every morning for a unique experience each and every time.
