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

Consumer review by:



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

Great Maker if you likely freshly ground coffee


This is the 2nd maker we have purchased. The first one lasted several years, but guess just wore out. Had trouble getting the the water to all go through. But, we haven't found another maker that grinds fresh beans first thing in the a.m. and is ready...

Fresh Coffee ready when you wake up

Cleaning the shoot for the beans

Very good coffee maker


Fresh coffee fresh water the rest the coffee maker does by itself. Makes great coffee. Please use a good coffee. You will be well rewarded.

Consumer review by:

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

Consumer review by:

perfect pot of coffee!


Expensive, but well worth it! I set to have coffee ready at 4am, and at 9PM (yes, PM), it is still hot enough to drink! I have not found any negatives in this product, and I will definately buy Cuisinart appliances from now on!


if I had to pick the parts

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!
