The bottom of the coffee grinder part sticks and doesn't want to come out of the coffee maker to be cleaned. What can be done about this and what may be causing it?

Whole Latte Love Staff It sounds like the grinding unit needs to be cleaned more frequently. The sticking you’re describing is probably being caused by the oil on the coffee beans, especially if they are particularly oily beans. In this case, I would recommend contacting Cuisinart directly so that they can send you some more extensive grinder cleaning instructions. They can be reached at 800-726-0190.

Does this grind & Brew coffee pot keep the coffee hot after brewing?

Whole Latte Love Staff Yes - the Grind and Brew Auto has a scratch resistant hot plate that will keep your coffee heated after brewing. The hot plate can be turned off using the machine’s on/off switch, but also has an auto-off feature that can be programmed to turn off the machine up to 4 hours after brewing. If no time is programmed, the machine will automatically turn off 2 hours after brewing.

Could I just pour in the coffee beans and then it would grind them and brew a pot by just the push of a button?

Whole Latte Love Staff If you’re going to brewing right away, the process you described is exactly what you’d want to do. Just fill the reservoir with the right amount of water, put beans in the grinder, add your filter basket, and press the "on" button. In minutes, you’ll have freshly brewed coffee.

is your coffee stronger or weaker the longer you grind?

Whole Latte Love Staff When using a blade grinder (like the one built into this machine) your coffee will be stronger the longer its ground because by making the grinds finer you’re increasing the surface area that the water is able to extract flavor from. However, because of this increased surface area it is also very easy to overextract the grounds and produce a bitter flavor, so it’s important not to make the grind too fine to avoid this.

Please note, however, that when using a burr grinder (like the one found in the Capresso CoffeeTeam) the length of grind time is NOT relative to the size of the grind. This is because burrs have the ability to be set to produce a specific grind size and they will not vary from that fineness once it’s set. Instead, you would simply change the grind setting to get the desired fineness, and not the length of time it takes to grind.
