Capresso CoffeeTeam TS 465 Overview

In the intro I mentioned Capresso was the first to produce a programmable coffee maker featuring a conical burr grinder.

The CoffeeTeam TS is one of those models, and it's Grind & Brew functionality simplifies the brewing process through its all-in-one design.

This machine is incredibly easy to use:

  1. Make sure the coffee bean container has enough beans in it,
  2. Select your serving size from 2-10 cups,
  3. Select “GRIND/BREW” button from the front control panel,
  4. Sit back and relax,

It’s that simple to get a great cup of coffee from freshly ground beans.

And if your favorite coffee only comes pre-ground, don’t worry — you can use that too with the CoffeeTeam TS’s “BREW” button (instead of “GRIND/BREW”).

The 6 oz bean hopper holds enough beans for around 20 cups of coffee, or 2 full 10-cup brews.

The conical burr grinder is the major differentiating feature from Capresso's popular MT series.

Pretty much everything else — notably the included GoldTone permanent filter, charcoal water filter and thermal carafe — is the same as the MT600.

Let's note 2 other differences:

  1. Price: You can buy an effective, electric, conical burr grinder for around $50. The gap in price between these two models is much more than that (unless you find this one on sale).
  2. Ease of Cleaning: Dark, oily beans don’t work very well with built-in grinders. While you can check to make sure the feeder into the grinder isn’t clogged, actually cleaning the grinder requires disassembly.

Pros

  • Comes with 6 oz bean hopper and conical burr grinder
  • Drip stop included to pour off your first cup while it’s brewing
  • Programmable 24-hour Auto-On

Cons

  • Included conical burr grinder adds hefty cost
  • Grinder can’t easily be cleaned or accessed
  • Extraction could be better

Is Capresso CoffeeTeam TS 465 for you?

Grind & Brew coffee makers like the Capresso CoffeeTeam TS are great for those looking to enjoy an enhanced morning cup without a lot of work.

Compared to the Capresso MT600, the CoffeeTeam TS has many of the same features, and your choice comes down to whether you think the included conical burr grinder is worth the higher price tag.

Capresso MT900 Rapid Brew
Overall Rating: 85
A solid mid-range drip coffee maker with a few handy features like the Maximum Aroma setting on smaller 3-5 cup brew size, the Capresso MT900 Rapid Brew is one of Capresso's best. But we wouldn't exactly call it "rapid."

Designed to brew single servings up to 16 oz and accommodate travel mugs up to 7" tall, the Capresso On-The-Go Personal Coffee Maker is a solid single-serve coffee maker. But why wouldn't you just get a Keurig?
