Everyone knows that the secret to a great cup of coffee is freshly-ground beans. But if you’re the type who programs an automatic brew each morning, there’s no time to grind your own beans. That’s where the Cuisinart DGB-625BC Grind-and-Brew comes in. Now, you can enjoy the freshest-tasting coffee without having to sacrifice that programmable feature you love. The DGB-625BC has plenty of other great features too.

Durable Construction

Like other Cuisinart coffee makers, the DGB-625BC is well-built. The black plastic housing is rugged and durable with metallic accents.

High-End Features and Modern Design

The DGB-625BC has a lot to offer in the features department. But I want to start off with the two most important ones: programmability and grinding. Normally, those are two words you never hear in the same sentence.

With the DGB-625BC, you get full 24-hour programmability, so you can wake up to a pot of coffee in the morning. And just before the machine starts brewing, it’ll grind your beans for you. Don’t worry, you’re not limited to whole coffee beans. You can use ground coffee too. Just press the “Grind Off” button before starting the brewing cycle (or programming). And once the machine starts brewing, the showerhead design ensures optimal flavor extraction.

This machine can brew up to 12 cups at a time, but there’s also a feature that lets you brew just 1-4 cups.

The DGB-625BC also offers:

  • Adjustable automatic shut-off for 0-4 hours.
  • Brew pause.
  • Charcoal water filter.
  • Permanent gold tone filter.
  • Measuring scoop and brush.
  • Dripless 12-cup carafe with ergonomic handle.
  • Water reservoir with markings for easy filling.
  • Cord storage.
  • Warming plate.

The DGB-625BC packs so many great features into one convenient machine.

Easy Cleaning

The DGB-625BC doesn’t come with a self-cleaning cycle, like other Cuisinart coffee machines. But it’s still very easy to clean. The permanent filter can be placed in the dishwasher. The rest of the machine wipes clean with a sponge or towel.

Built to Last

Under normal use, the Cuisinart DGB-625BC should last for many years. For added peace of mind, Cuisinart does include a 3-year warranty with this machine.

Unbeatable Price

Machines with automatic grinders typically aren’t budget-friendly, but the DGB-625BC is an exception to the rule.

Why I Recommend the DGB-625BC

  • Built-in grinder for the freshest-tasting coffee.
  • Comes with a permanent filter.
  • Water filter removes impurities and improves the taste of your coffee.
  • 24-hour programmability, so you can wake up to freshly brewed coffee.
  • Brew pause to sneak in a cup of coffee before the brewing cycle is done.
  • Option to brew just 1-4 cups.

What I Would Change

  • The grinder is loud

The grinder was louder than I expected. But honestly, all coffee grinds are loud. This might be a loud inconvenience if you plan on brewing your coffee before you actually get up in the morning.

Aside from this one minor issue, the Cuisinart DGB-625BC is nearly perfect. It’s priced just right, it makes a great pot of coffee and it will even grind your beans for you before it starts brewing. I highly recommend this machine to anyone looking for programmability and a freshly-brewed taste.
