The Bottom Line
The DGB-850 is identical to the DGB-800 (conical burrs, 60 oz brew size, 8 oz hopper) but the DGB-850 comes with a thermal carafe. With this machine, you won't need a separate coffee maker and grinder.

Cuisinart DGB-850 Grind & Brew Overview

The Cuisinart DGB-850 is nearly identical to the DGB-900.

They have all of the same buttons and options, they brew the same volume, the bean hoppers are the same size, and they both come with thermal carafes and conical stainless steel burrs.

The DGB-850 falls lower solely because it’s a more outdated model, but I’d still get this over the DGB-900 if you can get a better price.

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.

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!
