Capresso CoffeeTEAM GS Review

Most of you probably do not know that I used to work in a coffee shop. While I was in college, I worked 3 part time jobs to pay my way through college. One of those 3 jobs I had was managing a coffee shop in shopping mall by my house. Because I worked at the coffee shop, I was actually pretty familiar with different brands of coffee machines. One would think that I would have a nice high end coffee machine, instead we had a cheap coffee machine that was $20-- what can I say, money was tight and when we had a bit more money, I never bought a better one.

Recently, we were lucky enough to have received a Capresso CoffeeTEAM GS to review.

To say this machine is awesome is an understatement. We have it program so that it make a fresh pot of coffee for us every morning. We love that we could just fill the coffee beans and the grinder does its job of grinding the coffee beans before the coffee is made. We also love that we could select mild, regular or strong coffee. The coffee filter holder stays inside the machine during grinder preserving more aroma and reducing mechanical movements. While DH loves having great and consistently tasty coffee every morning (I do too), my favorite feature is actually the GoldTone Filter. Since we try to be as eco friendly as possible, it is so nice to be able to reuse the GoldTone Filter instead of buying paper filter and not creating additional waste that pollutes Earth.

If you are in the market for a coffee machine, we definitally recommend checking out the products offered by Capresso.

Feature and Benefits
-The CoffeeTEAM GS lets you program the amount of coffee you want to grind: choose from 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10 cups and select mild, regular or strong. The coffee filter holder stays inside the machine during grinder preserving more aroma and reducing mechanical movements. You can even program two completely different settings, one for manual operation and one for automatic operation. This way you always enjoy exactly the same coffee taste.
-The CoffeeTEAM uses solid steel conical burrs, the same as found in our automatic coffee centers. The slow grinding of the burrs imparts minimal heat preserving more aroma than blade grinding. It also allows a finer and more uniform grind than combination machines with a blade grinder.
-Five fineness settings for light to dark beans let you adjust the grinder to your preferred beans (the darker/oilier the bean, the coarser the setting). 6 ounce bean container.
-Direct-feed technology accommodates a more compact design while keeping moisture away from the grinder. The CoffeeTEAM GS grinds the programmed amount of beans directly into the filter and then automatically initiates the brewing process.
-AM/PM Programmable Clock/Timer lets you set the time when to grind and brew automatically.
-The easy-to-read LCD display shows the time, grind and strength settings.
-Charcoal water filter removes up to 82% of chlorine and other impurities.
-10-cup (50 oz.) Capacity.
-GoldTone Filter included. CoffeeTEAM GS can also be used with size 4 filter paper.
-Over 200° F brew and 180° F coffee temperature in glass carafe directly after brewing.
-2 Hour Safety Shut-Off will keep the coffee hot for two hours after brewing. Then the heating element will shut off by itself conserving energy and giving you peace of mind. PLEASE NOTE: A red light will blink indicating the heating element is on. The clock and all programmed settings stay on.
-The unit can be used with or without the grinder, accommodating pre-ground coffee, including flavored coffees or decaf. Choose the BREW MODE for pre-ground coffee or GRIND/BREW MODE for whole bean coffee.
-Stop-and-Serve lets you remove the carafe while brewing to serve a quick cup.
-Coated Non-Stick Warming Plate
-Stainless Steel accents
