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.
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.
An upgrade from Cuisinart's base entry-level model, the EM-200 adds programmability to the mix with properly-extracted shots at the push of a button and a larger 64 oz water reservoir that make it a little easier to use.
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!
