Cuisinart DCC-3200 Perfectemp

Cuisinart DCC-3200 Perfectemp
Overall Rating: 87
A feature-rich coffee maker with a massive 70 oz water reservoir, Bold Brew for stronger coffee, and programmable 24-hour Auto-On, the Cuisinart DCC-3200 Perfectemp is great if you're looking for a big pot every morning.

Cuisinart DGB-800 Grind & Brew

Cuisinart DGB-800 Grind & Brew
Overall Rating: 88
The DGB-800 is identical to the DGB-850 (conical burrs, 60 oz brew size, 8 oz hopper) but the DGB-800 comes with a glass carafe. With this machine, you won't need a separate coffee maker and grinder.

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.
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!
