Grind and brew coffee makers aren’t exactly a new concept, but for many people they remain unfamiliar. These coffeemakers are unique as they combine two distinct kitchen appliances and tools. One of them is the coffee bean grinder, in which you add coffee beans and grind them to make coffee with. The other is the coffee maker that you use to make the coffee with from the coffee beans.
Most people aren’t familiar with grinding their own coffee beans, let alone a grind and brew coffee maker. However, those who are aware know that the freshest coffee can be enjoyed only from grinding their own beans. On top of that, you can control the size of the grind and, therefore, control the strength of the coffee.
These machines often have permanent gold tone or brass filters because paper filters won’t do in these makers – there’re grinding blades within the filter basket to grind the beans. The freshly ground coffee is then already in the filter allowing the coffee maker to do its job and make coffee from the freshly ground coffee beans.
