Brewing freshly ground coffee beans sure is a luxury, but it doesn’t have to be expensive. Black and Decker offers an affordable way to enjoy this with their Mill and Brew Coffeemaker. Simply load your chosen coffee beans, set it to grind and brew, and out comes a delicious cup of coffee.

02) KRUPS Grind and Brew Auto-start Coffee Maker
Load your coffee beans in bulk with the KRUPS Grind and Brew Auto-start Coffee Maker’s 5 oz capacity. This way, you won’t have to load the beans every time you prepare a freshly brewed pot of coffee. To make sure that your coffee beans are ground in the best way possible, it uses a conical burr grinder that produces a high-quality and consistent grind compared to a blade grinder. Poorly ground beans may alter the taste of the coffee beans, which will never be the case with this coffee-maker and grinder combination. For this feature alone, it’s certainly worth the purchase!

Bring the whole coffee shop experience to your home with the DeLonghi Automatic Espresso & Coffee Machine. This has a patented milk frother that allows you to make your own cup of cappuccino and latte with a layer of foamy milk on top! It’s certainly smaller than a traditional coffee machine, making it a save-spacing kitchen appliance that does more despite its smaller build. Its steel burr grinder produces a uniform grind, preserving the taste and aroma of the coffee beans for a consistent flavor in every cup. If you want to try being your own barista, this is certainly a great way for you to start!

If Cuisinart is your go-to brand for kitchen appliances but you need a more affordable option, this model is a great pick. A freshly brewed pot of coffee can fill up to 14 cups, which is more than enough for you and other coffee-drinkers in the family. Despite being a cheaper model, this coffee-maker and grinder combination utilizes a fully programmable interface for a scheduled brew every day. Its gold tone filter also ensures a smooth body in every sip, and the double-wall thermal stainless steel carafe prevents your coffee from getting cold minutes after brewing. Definitely worth it!
