This an excellent coffee grinder/maker! This was a gift for my husband who makes the coffee every night before going to bed so we can get that fresh cup in the morning when we enter the kitchen. He's very impressed with it and loves the ease of fresh-ground coffee every morning! Our only complaint would be that that last 1/4 cup is very difficult (and messy) to pour into the cup. (I'm shocked that Cuisinart didn't figure that one out early on in the design stage???!??!) Other than that, we're both very pleased with the product!
