5 Best Coffee Makers with Grinders for 2020 (Our Picks)

Updated: Mar 19


Hey, diehard coffee lover! We know how much you love your morning cup of joe. BUT, not just any cup will do. You want a cup that’s bursting with fresh coffee flavor.


For the bean to cup connoisseur, answering the question, “What is the best home coffee machine to buy?” takes more than a one-word answer.


Discriminating coffee tastes require a coffee maker with a grinder because it’s all about quality.


Luckily, we found what we consider to be the 5 best coffee makers with grinders for 2020 for home use.


The first three are solid choices for the coffee lover that wants Staunton coffee shop quality. The last two are for those who want to make specialty coffee drinks like espresso and Cappuccino.


Plus, we answer a few questions along the way.


Cuisinart Grind & Brew, DGB 900BC


This is our top choice! With a double-wall insulated steel thermal carafe, the Cuisinart holds 12 cups of coffee.


We like the built-in automatic burr grinder and 8-ounce bean hopper which holds a half-pound of beans.


We also like the charcoal water filter, and permanent gold-tone filter to ensure only the freshest cup of coffee flows through the system. Well-made and durable.


Capresso 465


This 10-cup programmable coffeemaker integrates a conical burr grinder with direct-feed technology.


With a 6-ounce bean container, it grinds your whole beans just before brewing. The gold-tone filter eliminates the need for filters and it’s dishwasher safe.


Breville Coffee Maker with Grinder, BDC650BSS


The Breville has eight strength settings and the bean hopper holds a half-pound of coffee. You can also brew a single cup and choose your cup size. There’s a locking system which makes removal easy, a removable drip tray that fits tall cups and travel mugs. LCD screen gives real-time feedback.


For specialty coffee lovers…


Breville Barista Express, BES870XL


This model Breville has dose grinding control. The conical burr grinder will grind on demand delivering the right amount of coffee for your preferred taste. It also includes a precise espresso extractor, micro-foam milk texturing, and hands-free operation.


De’Longhi Magnifica, ESAM300


This automatic espresso and coffee machine has a patented Cappuccino system frother that creates a rich, creamy froth by mixing steam and milk. You can make up to 14 cups using beans instantly ground with the patented, compact “Direct to Brew” system. Easy to clean, too. Requires half the cleaning time of other brands.


Is It Cheaper to Grind Your Own Coffee?


In terms of dollars and cents, it’s cheaper to buy pre-ground coffee. However, the flavor of the coffee is compromised. With whole coffee beans, you get a better cup of coffee because the beans are usually from a better crop.


Additionally, they are more recently roasted than pre-ground beans. Want a great cup of coffee? Buy whole beans.


Which Coffee Machine Makes the Best Americano?


We like the Breville Barista Express BES8701. It’s perfect for the home barista. The Gaggia Brera Super Automatic Espresso Machine is also another excellent choice.


Are Expensive Coffee Makers Worth It?


If a full flavor coffee with nuanced notes is as important to you as the notes of a good wine, investing in an expensive coffee maker is a no-brainer.


Quality built, these machines not only outperform cheaper coffeemakers, but it’s a quality you can taste.


Finding the zip to get up in the morning gets a whole lot easier with coffee. But choosing one of the best coffee makers with grinders for 2020 can almost make it a pleasure!
