The Bottom Line
A single-serve grind-and-brew model? You bet. The Cuisinart DGB-1FR has a 4 oz bean hopper and integrated blade grinder and brews freshly ground coffee for one. Blade grinders aren't the best, but neither are K-Cups.

Cuisinart DGB-550 Grind & Brew

Cuisinart DGB-550 Grind & Brew
Overall Rating: 84
An all-included Grind & Brew coffee maker, the Cuisinart DGB-550 brews up to 60 oz pots using your favorite whole bean coffee. Unfortunately, it's a blade grinder. For a better burr grinder, check out the DGB-900 instead.

Cuisinart EM-600 Buona Tazza

Cuisinart EM-600 Buona Tazza
Overall Rating: 84
An easy-to-use, capsule-based espresso machine, the Cuisinart EM-600 Buona Tazza uses illy brand capsules and an integrated frother for one-touch specialty beverages. While effective, we prefer Nespresso's latte system.

Cuisinart DGB-700 Grind & Brew

Cuisinart DGB-700 Grind & Brew
Overall Rating: 87
The lowest model number of all nearly-identical Cuisinart Grind & Brew coffee makers, the DGB-700 has the same settings and specs as the others and comes with a glass carafe. All lower model numbers have blade grinders.
About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
