The Bottom Line
The Cuisinart DGB-650 is the best Cuisinart machine with a blade grinder. Unfortunately, that makes it inferior to the DGB-700 and higher. On the plus side, it comes with a thermal carafe.

Cuisinart DGB-650 Grind & Brew Overview

The Cuisinart DGB-650 is the best Cuisinart model with a blade grinder.

On the plus side, it comes with a thermal carafe.

But honestly, I can’t think of a reason to get this grinder instead of any other Cuisinart model above. The burr grinders make that much of a difference.

Cuisinart EM-400 Buona Tazza

Cuisinart EM-400 Buona Tazza
Overall Rating: 83
The Cuisinart EM-400 Buona Tazza is a capsule-based espresso machine compatible with illy brand capsules. While easy to use, we don't see much reason to go with the EM-400 instead of an industry-leading Nespresso machine.

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-1FR Grind & Brew

Cuisinart DGB-1FR Grind & Brew
Overall Rating: 84
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.
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!
