There are few better ways to start off your morning then by having a cup of freshly brewed coffee that has been made with freshly ground coffee beans. Typically, one has to have the grinder separate from the coffee machine itself, but this isn’t always the case.
There are actually a lot of high-end coffee machines out there that have the ability to both brew and to grind beans. Given this, you may be curious as to which of these coffee makers is right for you. We are here to find that out.
In this article, we will be looking at the best coffee makers with grinders built in. If you want a specific product recommendation, you can’t go wrong with the Capresso 465 CoffeeTeam TS 10-Cup Coffeemaker with Conical Burr Grinder.
A Spotlight On Some of The Best Coffee Makers With Grinders 2020:
Capresso 465 CoffeeTeam TS Coffeemaker with Conical Burr Grinder
To properly start off our best coffee makers with grinders review list, we want to take a look at an entry that could easily be considered to be one of the higher end coffee grinder and brewer combos around, which is the Capresso 465 CoffeeTeam TS Coffeemaker with Conical Burr Grinder.
We will say right from the start that this is not even remotely budget friendly. In fact, this is a pretty expensive coffee brewer and grinder machine. If, however, the idea of spending a bit of money isn’t a big deal to you, then you are going to be getting what is easily one of the most high-quality options around and it is sure to be a great addition to your kitchen.
So, what exactly is so good about the Capresso 465 CoffeeTeam TS Coffeemaker with Conical Burr Grinder? Well, there are a lot of different positive features that we could mention but lets start with one of the more obvious ones, which is the high-quality grinder that is present on the Capresso.
Really, we can’t say enough nice things about the grinder. The blades on it are not only really sharp, but they are sure to stay that way for a while, meaning less upkeep work for you. Something else to consider is the fact that the Capresso also has a great motor. The motor provides the power needed to keep the blade turning and the coffee flowing.
If you aren’t a fan of paper filters, then we are sure that you are going to love the fact that the Capresso 465 CoffeeTeam TS Coffeemaker with Conical Burr Grinder comes with its own built in filter system. Rather than having to constantly use paper filters, you can simply use the built in Goldtone filters instead. They work just as well and don’t make waste.
- Built in Goldtone filtration system.
- Really sharp, efficient grinder blades.
- Perfect for every sort of coffee drinker.
- Powerful motor that never slows down.
- Pretty pricey when compared to some other entries.
Barsetto Grind and Brew Automatic Coffee Machine
For the next review on our best coffee makers with grinders list, we want to take a look at the Barsetto Grind and Brew Automatic Coffee Machine. This is another very high-end (but also quite bulky and expensive) coffee machine. So, it is very much in the same vein as the Capresso 465 CoffeeTeam TS Coffeemaker with Conical Burr Grinder that we just finished reviewing.
Much like with the Capresso, the Barsetto is not a coffee machine for those with either space or budget issues. If, however, you have neither of those, then you are likely going to enjoy the massive quality that this coffee machine brings to the table.
There really are so many good things to say about the Barsetto Grind and Brew Automatic Coffee Machine that it is difficult to fit them into one review. It is well-built, has a great grinding system, it has lots of different options to tinker with, and it always seems to reliably produce great tasting coffee. So really, what’s not to love?
As we said in the introduction, the biggest issues with the Barsetto Grind and Brew Automatic Coffee Machine relate to its price and size.
Simply put, this is not an inexpensive coffee machine, to say the least. The quality of the machine does help to alleviate the price concerns somewhat. Likewise, even by the standards of this list, the Barsetto is incredibly bulky. So, make sure that you have space for it before you buy it.
- Very well-made and durable coffee machine.
- Produces consistently great tasting coffee.
- A wide array of options to play around with.
- Very strong and reliable grinding system.
- A very expensive coffee machine.
- Big, even by the standards of coffee makers with grinders.
Viante Mini Coffee Maker with grinder
If you were to take a gander down our best coffee makers with grinders review list, then you would no doubt notice that the vast majority of them are fairly large and also pretty bulky. This isn’t really something that can be helped. You have to remember that these aren’t regular coffee makers, but coffee makers with built in grinders.
So, they are effectively two appliances shoved into one package. This means that they are going to be a lot bigger than your average coffee maker. We do understand that this can cause a lot of issues for many of you out there, including those who live in apartments, smaller houses, or who may want to take their coffee machine on the go (such as to a cottage or in a mobile home).
So, we decided to include at least one option on this list that was a bit more compact. This is where the Viante Mini Coffee Maker with grinder comes into play. This miniature coffee maker is the perfect option for those who find that space is at a premium in their household.
As we said in that lengthy introduction, the Viante Mini Coffee Maker with grinder is an extremely compact option. We really want to emphasize that point since the Viante is a fairly unremarkable option otherwise.
Don’t get us wrong, it is fairly well-made and performs well, but when compared to many of the other entries on our best coffee makers with grinders list, it isn’t anything special. However, what does set the Viante apart is the fact that it manages to perform very well, despite being more compact.
This size does bring one disadvantage, which is a lowered capacity. At only 4 cups of coffee per use, the Viante Mini Coffee Maker with grinder is probably the smallest coffee maker option on this list. So, while it can satisfy 1 or 2 people easily enough, it is not the best option for larger, multi person households (assuming everyone in the house is a coffee drinker of course).
- Decent performance, despite smaller size.
- Takes up very little room on countertop.
- Has all the standard features one expects from a high-end coffee machine.
- Very small capacity of 4 cups.
BLACK+DECKER 12-Cup Mill and Brew Coffeemaker
The next coffee maker and grinder combo that we think deserves to be on our review list is from a very strange brand to see on a kitchen appliance review list, which is Black+Decker. Typically, you see this brand when shopping for power tools, not kitchen appliances.
However, they do actually make kitchen appliances like toasters, ovens, and blenders. Yes, they also happen to make coffee machines as well. Defying expectations, the BLACK+DECKER 12-Cup Mill and Brew Coffeemaker is actually quite a well-made coffee maker and grinder that deserves to be reviewed on this list alongside more dedicated brands.
For starters, anyone who is familiar with Black+Decker tools can tell you one thing, they are always very cheap and that is definitely the case with the BLACK+DECKER 12-Cup Mill and Brew Coffeemaker.
This is easily the cheapest option on our entire review list. While it does lack some of the more advanced features of other coffee machines, it is hard to fault them for that too much given the low cost of the unit.
You have to expect some concessions to be made and it is well in line with other products from Black+Decker, which tend not to be too fancy. They definitely still maintain that signature Black+Decker reliability, as well as their functionality. Their tools are reliable and apparently, so are there coffee machines.
This is also a very fast and efficient coffee maker/grinder. It not only grinds up the beans to your desired consistency quickly, but the coffee also gets brewed very quickly as well. So, the BLACK+DECKER 12-Cup Mill and Brew Coffeemaker is the perfect option for those who have trouble getting up in the morning and need a quick cup of coffee.
- Very easy to use and functional.
- Easily the cheapest entry on this coffee maker list.
- Maintains that signature Black+Decker functionality.
- Works very quickly.
- Lacking some of the more advanced features on higher end coffee machines.
Cuisinart DGB-550BKP1 Grind & Brew Automatic Coffeemaker
So far on our best coffee makers with grinders review list, we have been looking at fairly expensive entries. We aren’t going to lie to you (we also touch upon the issue later on in our buying guide), the majority of high-quality coffee maker and grinder combos are quite expensive. That isn’t always the case, however.
To show you that you can still find decent coffee makers and grinder combos that won’t break the bank, we have decided to feature the Cuisinart DGB-550BKP1 Grind & Brew Automatic Coffeemaker next on our list.
Cuisinart is a very well-known maker of kitchen gadgets and appliances, so it isn’t surprising to see them appear on our review list at least once. With this particular coffee maker and grinder, they have shown that they can product a very good, budget friendly appliance.
We know that we have already talked about the cost of this unit in the introduction, but we want to go over that again since it is very important and easily the biggest reason why we decided to include the Cuisinart DGB-550BKP1 Grind & Brew Automatic Coffeemaker on our review list in the first place.
This is easily one of the cheaper options on the market as a whole and it is definitely the most budget friendly option on our entire review list.
At the same time, we have to emphasize that even though this is a very inexpensive coffee maker and grinder combo, it is still one that provides the same sort of high-quality performance that you have no doubt come to expect from so many of the other entries on this review list.
The motor on the grinder is strong and the blades are of a surprisingly high quality, both of which make it easily able to achieve the exact level of grind that you want. Likewise, the Cuisinart DGB-550BKP1 Grind & Brew Automatic Coffeemaker also brews great tasting coffee.
The biggest issues with the Cuisinart DGB-550BKP1 Grind & Brew Automatic Coffeemaker relate to its relatively low capacity, as well as the fact that the grinder is quite loud. Both of these are issues that are understandable, given the super low price of the appliance.
- Great value for your dollars.
- One of the most reasonably priced brewer/grinder combos.
- Surprisingly good motor and grinder, despite the low price.
- Relatively small capacity.
- Grinder is extremely noisy.
Coffee Maker and Grinder Buying Guide
We hope that you found our best coffee makers with grinders review list to be useful. In this second part of our article, we are going to be doing a short, but hopefully still informative, buying guide where we discuss everything that you need to know about these appliances.
Furthermore, we want to talk a bit about the appliances themselves and explain some things that you probably need to know about them before you make the decision to invest in them.
Things To Know Before Buying
There are two things that we think are very important to emphasize to any potential buyer before they place an order on Amazon for a coffee maker with a built in grinder. To a certain extent, these are likely things that you already know if you actually read our review list above. However, we feel that they are important enough to reemphasize them again.
The first thing that we want to mention is cost. As you saw from our best coffee makers with grinders list, these are not inexpensive appliances. The very fact that they essentially have to have two appliances built into one package means that they aren’t going to be cheap.
So, before investing in one of these coffee makers, ask yourself if your budget can support such a decision. While we agree that freshly ground and brewed coffee is unbeatable, the cost of one of these appliances can make regular coffee look more appealing.
Weight and Size
The other warning that we want to give is with regards to the weight and size of these appliances. Again, this was likely pretty easy to figure out just from our review list, but we wanted to state it again just to make sure that everyone understands this crucial point.
Due to the necessity of stuffing two appliances into one package, coffee makers with built in grinders are both extremely heavy and very large. So, you want to make sure that you have adequate counter space for these hulking beasts before actually investing in them.
That being said, one should also probably consider that they may end up saving space on their countertop by virtue of only having to find space for one appliance, instead of two. So, the weight and size concerns aren’t as important as they may seem at first.
What To Look For When Shopping
In this next part of the buying guide, we want to go over exactly what you need to look for when buying a coffee maker with a grinder.
It goes without saying that when you are buying a combo appliance, that you want both appliances to be of high quality. Of the two appliances (coffee makers and grinders), the latter is by far the easier of the two to evaluate in terms of quality, so let’s start there.
A good grinder will have two things. First off, it should have very sharp blades. Sharp blades allow the grinder to provide a consistently good grind, without becoming too coarse.
The biggest issue with coffee grinders is that they will either undergrind the beans or overgrind them, either of which is going to lead to disgusting, undrinkable coffee. Sharp blades prevent this. Secondly, the grinder has to have a good motor. This prevents the grinder from slowing down or losing any of its grinding power.
