recs for an all in one coffee maker/grinder needed

I'm thinking a good holiday gift to myself would be an all in one unit which grinds and brews. I've never had coffee from one of these and wondering if there are any standouts on the market. I'm not looking for anything with capachino/expresso capability, just plain old really good coffee, thanks

  1. I have a Capresso which was a Xmas gift from last year. It is outstanding. It is a grinder/coffee maker all in one. It's a burr grinder. It's very adjustable from 4-10 cups. Also programable to start before you're ever out of bed. Certainly have no complaints with it at all.

    1. I've had the Cuisinart Grind and Brew for about eight years, and would never think of changing.

        I loved my Capresso grinder/coffeemaker- and couldn't believe it lasted for >6 years. I only changed for a TechniVorm and separate grinder- but I do miss that programmable start. It's fantastic to wake up to the sound of the coffee grinder and the smell of coffee in the morning! The Capresso makes very good coffee, and is very reliable.
