Enjoy coffee bar results at home with the Cuisinart Grind & Brew 12 Cup Automatic Coffeemaker. Pre-ground coffee can often become stale. But when coffee beans are ground just before brewing, you ensure freshness and flavor with each pot. The Cuisinart Grind & Brew Coffeemaker features a burr grinder for a more flavorful, aromatic pot of coffee. Unlike blade grinders that unevenly chop your beans, a burr grinder will evenly crush and grind your beans, releasing their oils for a better tasting cup. The bean hopper will hold up to 8 ounces of beans, and the sealed lid prevents moisture from getting in.
