That’s what the manufacturer recommends and I wanted to play ball. The results were a little weak and watery, so I increased the amount of ground Cuisinart Coffee coffee to eight scoops for the next pot. That seemed to be the magic ratio, and I probably ended up drinking way more coffee than I should have.

Used coffee grounds are retained in the filter and the brewed coffee seeps through and is collected in a pot, carafe, or mug.

Cuisinart Coffee

In the US, Cuisinart offers a huge range of coffee makers, but in other countries the selection is smaller. I hope my Cuisinart Coffee Center review helps answer any questions you had about this particular model. I think it’s nice to have the option of brewing a single serve or a full pot if only to make having company over for coffee a little easier.

It took seven and a half minutes to brew the four cup quantity, and the resulting coffee came out at 167oF/ 75oC. Cusinart advises warming the carafe with hot water if you want your coffee hotter. As such, the next time we brewed four cups, we first poured boiling water into the carafe and let it sit for five minutes.

The reservoir on the K cup side of the machine is not removable, and it’s tiny. I feel like refilling every time you brew would get old pretty quickly. Not to be deterred, I switched to a coffee with a darker roast profile. Plus, I used a much finer grind setting to compensate for the quick brew time. For those of you who enjoy single servings of dark roast coffee, let me say this machine is a winner. The results were rich, chocolatey and incredibly satisfying.

Before you buy, be sure to measure the space where you plan to keep your coffee maker, as well as how much room you have below your cabinets. Keep in mind that even if your machine fits under the cabinet, most Cuisinart Coffee makers need to be pulled forward so you can load them with water and ground coffee. If you’re looking for the best value from the brand, this 12-cup model is the one to choose. In spite of its relatively low price, the Cuisinart DCC-1100BK is attractive and offers the same basic perks as the more expensive models. It’s programmable, so you can set it to have the coffee ready the minute you wake up or walk into the house.
