The Next Generation of Coffeemakers: Increased Focus on Flavor

 

For coffee drinkers, a good cup of java is of paramount importance. Great-tasting coffee does not happen by accident. It is a well-orchestrated process that involves selecting the best quality coffee beans, the perfect ground texture, and the right equipment to use for brewing the coffee at home.  

 

Now, discriminating coffee drinkers can have a coffeemaker that streamlines the preparation process and customizes coffee to their personal preference. Cuisinart has unveiled two Grind & Brew™ coffeemakers that deliver superior taste and new convenience features for consumers. 

 

The Fully Automatic Burr Grind & Brew Thermal™ 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker (model no. DGB-900BC) and the Fully Automatic Burr Grind & Brew™ 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker (model no. DGB-700BC) are 24-hour fully programmable units designed with a burr grinder to produce an optimum coffee flavor in every cup.

 

What to Look for When Purchasing a Coffeemaker:

 

Taste:

Cuisinart’s latest coffeemakers are designed with the signature benefits of the Grind & Brew™ line – grinding whole beans just before brewing to ensure the freshest, most flavorful cup of coffee. The products also feature other innovations that elevate the coffee drinking experience – a burr grinder, as well as a ½-pound bean hopper with a sealed lid to prevent air or moisture from degrading the beans.  The special burr grinder is able to grind coffee without depleting the integrity of the bean, so the true flavor is maintained. The size of the grind is the key to the taste of a great cup of coffee. Cuisinart’s burr grinder is designed with plates that consistently and uniformly grind whole coffee beans to preserve delicate natural oils, maximizing flavor and aroma.

 

Customized Features:

Cuisinart’s new Grind & Brew™ coffeemakers offer consumers a grind control function to automatically adjust the amount of coffee that is ground, depending on the quantity of cups they wish to brew – from 2 to 12 cups. In addition, a two- to four-cup feature is integrated into both units, giving consumers the option to brew smaller amounts of coffee to the same exacting standards as when they brew full pots. Other customized features include a strength selector, which allows consumers to brew a strong, medium or mild pot of coffee, and the Brew Pause™ function that lets consumers enjoy a cup of coffee before brewing is finished. The coffeemakers automatically shut off after brewing.

 

Convenience:

The Fully Automatic Burr Grind & Brew Thermal™ 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker has a double-wall insulated thermal carafe, designed to maintain coffee at the recommended serving temperature after it has been brewed. The Fully Automatic Burr Grind & Brew™ 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker has a glass carafe. Both coffeemakers come with a gold tone commercial style permanent filter and a charcoal water filter that removes impurities from the water and enhances the flavor of the coffee.

 

Design:

Cuisinart’s new coffeemakers feature a brushed chrome housing with black accents, reflecting the industrial look of today’s modern kitchens.
