    Coffee maker recommendations?

    I'm tired of my Keurig and want something else. Im willing to drop up to 300$. I know grinding your own grounds is the best so I was looking at machines that have Burr grinders built in. but these can't do expresso which would def be a plus. current ones I'm looking at:

    Cuisinart DGB-900BC Grind & Brew Thermal 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker
    KRUPS Coffee Maker, Burr Coffee Grinder, 10 Cups, Black
    Ninja Coffee Bar Auto-iQ Programmable Coffee Maker with 6 Brew Sizes, 5 Brew Options, Milk Frother, Removable Water Reservoir and Glass Carafe (CF09 32CF4)

    what coffee makers do you guys have/recommend?

    Breville seems to be the 'leader' in the bean to cup brewers (all-in-ones). I prefer a separate grinder vs all in ones simply so you have the flexibility and can use multiple brewers. My recommended solution would be a Baratza Encore or Virtuoso ($129/$199) and pair it with a Bonavita 1901 Brewer ($109).

    Hello,

    Maybe you can try this KRUPS KM785D50 Grind and Brew Auto-start Coffee Maker. It has many features like 5 setting conical burr grinder, LCD screen display, customizeable strength and intensity, pause feature, programmable auto-start brew cycle, and many more. Currently, its now $136.17 at amazon.

    You could not get more bang for your buck and flexibility than this! To me it would be well worth the few extra dollars to get the Virtuoso grinder. YMMV as they say.

    I have the Baratza Encore with a TV MM, but I would have to agree, for overall bang for the buck, the above is a solid choice. I too prefer the grinder as a separate device and believe you get a better quality grinder that way vs an all in one.
