When I down sized to a small place I also down sized to a small kitchen. My daughter gave me a really nice gift the Sanyo Coffee/Tea Maker with Built-In Grinder. I really enjoy coffee from fresh grounded beans and with limited space there was not enough room for my old coffee pot let alone my old coffee grinder.
When my daughter gave me this machine I was so amazed to find a machine where I can grind and then brew without having two separate machines to do one job. The built in grinder works great and detaches so you can pour the grounds into the filter.
You don't have to fill the carafe just fill the detachable water tank. Which is nice because you only fill one unit instead of fill and pour - less mess this way.
At first I told my daughter I could not accept it because she was living on a very tight budget and I was sure she put a lot of money into this. Then she told me it cost her less than $40.00 - I was amazed at how cheaply priced this unit was. For a bean-to-cup machine it could work for most any budget.
