The Cuisinart SS-GB1 is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a grind and brew coffee maker that also has a single serving option.
This versatile brewer grinds the beans right before brewing, so you get maximum flavor from your coffee beans.
It has all the features you’d want from a fully automatic home brewer, with some additional perks, like the single serving side. Here, you can use any variety of coffee pods, K-Cups, and the Cuisinart HomeBarista reusable filter cup.
Also, use your own pre-ground coffee whenever you’d like or when you run out of coffee beans. Just hit the “grind off” button and you’re off to the races.
It comes with a removable permanent gold tone filter for easy cleaning and less waste, and a charcoal water filter (for both the coffee maker and the single serving sides)
that improves the taste of your coffee and removes impurities.
You can even use this brewer to make tea, hot chocolate, and other specialty beverages using pods on the single serving side.
The SS-GB1 makes is easy to use with its 24 hour programmability, auto off (0-4 Hours), and self clean. Get the exact flavor you crave with the coffee strength selector
for a customized brew every time.
If you’re looking to save counter space and don’t want a separate coffee grinder
, then you’ll love the Cuisinart SS-GB1 Coffee Center Grind & Brew Plus.
One major design oversight that some have mentioned is that the 40oz water reservoir for the single cup side does not detach, nor does it have a transparent indicator
to let you know how much water is in the reservoir.
This means you’ll have to either measure the water or be very mindful not to overfill it.
With that said, I also wish this brewer had a burr grinder instead of a blade grinder, but for those just starting out in the specialty coffee world, this is still a superb choice.
It’s a feature-rich machine that will give you delicious, fresh ground coffee every time.
