Cuisinart Grind&Brew Coffee Maker $59

[1]Whenever I mention one of my favored coffee makers — such as the Capresso 465.05 CoffeeTeam TS 10-Cup Digital Coffeemaker with Conical Burr Grinder and Thermal Carafe [1] — invariably someone will email complaining about the $216 price tag.

The Capresso is an awesome machine. You can get modestly better coffee from a French Press — I use one on occasion — but its nowhere near as convenient as the combination of a grinder/timer/thermos. Sleep late? No worries, piping hot coffee is waiting for you downstairs.

This morning, I see that Amazon is running a one day special on the Cuisinart DGB-550BK Grind-and-Brew 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker for $59 [2]. AMZN list price is $189, but I have seen more typically¬† at $129 — and you can easily find it online for $99.

Regardless, $59 is a good price for a decent grind & brew coffee maker. The Capresso equivalent [3] (w/o the thermos carafe) is about $162.

I just ordered the Cuisinart for our weekend place . . .
