Cuisinart DGB-900BC Burr Grind & Brew Thermal 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker


Unfortunately it doles out weak pots of coffee and is a pain to clean. You'd be better served buying a standalone burr grinder or even a cheap blade chopper paired with a competent drip brewer such as the Bunn Velocity Brew BT or Technivorm Moccamaster...

The Cuisinart Burr Grind and Brew Thermal Coffeemaker combines a precise burr grinder and standard drip coffeemaker in one device. The handsome machine also boasts a thermal carafe to keep coffee warm for hours and is programmable.

This coffee maker is big and has lots of parts you must clean regularly. The appliance also makes weak coffee and it's tricky to fill its water tank without spilling.

The Cuisinart Burr Grind and Brew Thermal Coffeemaker tries to merge two appliances into one but you're better off buying a grinder and quality brewer separately.

Disappointed and way overpriced


After owning a Saeco grind and brew that I bought here I am highly disappointed in this overpriced beast. Cuisinart needs to go back to drawing board and refine this unit. It is amazingly similar to the Saeco which doesn't seem to be available anymore....

Not much is very good about this unit

Shoot gets clogged, very loud grinder, messy pour from carafe ; The top to the carafe is pain ; The coffee basket has a rube goldberg contraption that you have to set right or your in trouble ; I always have to wipe up the spills from this unit ; The...

Generally weak coffee - broke after 6 months


Got this in September 2011 and it's broken in March 2012. Can't get a decent cup of coffee without double-grinding. We were not using cheap beans and we tried many different brands and blends. If you are a Tim H's lover, you may be happy. But if you...

Nice carafe

Noisy,weak coffee,constant cleaning

Love this...


Best home brewed coffee I've ever had. Thermos carafe keeps coffee hot for awhile. Versatile; can used grounds or beans

Pouring the last cup can be difficult due to the pouring system

Fast ; Easy to use ; Makes a VERY good cup of brew with the right beans ; Keeps coffee hot for hours

None really ; Maybe the fact that when you need to clean the grinding out it can be a pain but that is rare

Overly engineered


The coffee maker is overly engineered to appear cool but it lacks ease of use and true functionality. Maybe at 1/3 the price it would be okay.

Brews Quickly

Coffee Doesn't Stay Hot

Great Coffeemaker


Keeps the coffee hot (and I mean hot) for many more hours than our last craft coffee maker. It does take a little longer than our other coffee maker but worth the wait. I purchased an extra bean holder that fits on the top so we can change to different...

Product Specifications

Cuisinart introduces a fully programmable coffeemaker with a burr grinder for superior coffee. Our special burr grinder grinds the coffee without influencing the integrity of the bean, so the true flavor maintained. The strength selector and the grind control functions fine-tune intensity and volume, and the thermal carafe seals in heat and freshness so the last cup is as good as the first. It's never been easier to make a great pot of coffee!
