Buying pre-ground coffee may seem convenient, but in the world of coffee, that’s a real crime. Don’t kill the flavor for the sake of a few extra seconds.
That’s right; you don’t need to plug in your grinder for the most vibrant cup. You can actually get the best bean-to-carafe brew in no time. All you need is a machine that does both – grind and brew your beloved Java beans.
Luckily, we’ve found 12 amazing appliances that can transform your kitchen and brewing morning routines.
With the Capresso 465 grinder/brewer, you will enjoy the freshest cuppa ever. Thanks to the integrated conical burr grinder that turns your beans into uniform and fine particles, most of the coffee’s rich aroma will be preserved.
Capresso 465 is our definite best choice thanks to its amazing programmable functions. You can not only program the amount of coffee to brew, but you can actually choose two different operations– one set manually and one automatically.
The carafe is thermal and stainless steel; the footprint is compact, the design elegant, the display is LCD. The appliance can also be used with water filters for the cleanest cup, and it comes with a durable and GoldTone coffee filter.
But that’s not all. Thanks to the Drip Stop function, you can pause the brew at any point to remove the carafe and pour yourself a fresh cup of Joe before the cycle is even finished.

If you own a microscope (or know someone who does), I suggest you take a single bean and expect it carefully. You will see that it is made of tiny holes, which is why we can easily extract its flavor by running water through its surface.
In its whole form, coffee beans have a very small surface that gets in contact with oxygen (remember, it is highly porous). Grind those beans, and you will create tiny particles. But, considering their volume, these particles now have a massive surface area for the air to act on.
The longer the beans sit ground, the staler they get. For you to enjoy the rich flavor profile of the beans, ideally, you should grind them just before brewing.
But why should you own a coffee maker that has a built-in grinder?
It may seem overwhelming, but these coffee makers are actually pretty easy to operate:
The best (and easiest) way to clean your coffee machine is by running a vinegary cycle.
As you can see, there are a lot of reasons why you should update your drip maker with a new coffee machine that comes with a built-in grinder. There is nothing quite like a fresh cup of Joe, so why settle for a stale taste when you can enjoy the richest flavor from the comfort of your home? I hope that this article was able to help you find the perfect grind/brew match for you.
