    This coffeemaker is a combination grinder and brewer. It is programmable, you can adjust the brew strength, and it has an automatic shut-off feature for safety. However, there are several negatives. The unit has to be cleaned every time you use the grinder. The grinding chamber isn't large enough to hold enough beans for brewing a strong 12 cups of coffee. Tends to make weak coffee even on the strongest setting.
