Capresso 464.05 Coffee Maker Review
Welcome to the Capresso coffee maker reviews. Today we are going to take an in depth look at the Capresso CoffeeTeam GS, which is a Capresso coffee maker grinder combined unit. If you’re a coffee connoisseur then you realize the importance of having fresh coffee in order to enjoy your coffee beans’ full potential. There is nothing fresher than having whole coffee beans ground fresh just before you brew. Except perhaps in having your green coffee beans just freshly roasted the day before. But that is beyond the scope of this Capresso coffee maker review.
The Capresso 464.05 combines a glass carafe coffee maker with a conical burr grinder. For the thermal carafe version of this terrific coffee maker see the Capresso 465.05 or Capresso CoffeeTeam TS by clicking here. It is generally agreed, that the best way to extract the flavor profile from coffee beans is through a conical burr grinder. This type of grinder squeezes and shreds the coffee beans rather than slice them to smithereens. What this does is allow the full coffee oils to be imparted into the ground coffee and it doesn’t heat the coffee beans up as a blade grinder does, which can affect the flavor of your coffee.
So right off the bat, with this Capresso coffee maker with burr grinder, you are getting a fresh tasty cup of coffee, but there is of course more than that which makes a winning fully programmable coffee maker by Capresso. You also get 5 programmable coffee volume settings starting as small as 2 cups. For those of us who enjoy playing with our coffee strength, the Capresso 464.05 auto coffee maker also allows us to choose from 3 strength settings depending on your taste.
Here are just some of the terrific features of the Capresso grind and brew coffee maker:
- Built in conical burr grinder coffee maker brews up to 10 cups of fresh coffee
- 5 grind settings for coffee flavor control through an easy to use digital panel
- Bean hopper contains up to 6 ounces of fresh whole roasted coffee beans
- 2 hour automatic safety shut off and ability to bypass burr grinder to brew with pre-ground coffee
- 5 brew size settings as well as multiple strength setting options
The Capresso Coffee Team coffee maker comes with a standard one year warranty and includes a charcoal water filter. This is especially helpful if you live in an area with hard water or lots of minerals in your water which can affect the coffee flavor. The Capresso GS comes with all of the standard automatic features you’ve come to expect in a good coffee maker like the brew-pause function and fully programmable display with clock and timer.
Here is what one happy customer had to say about their Capresso 464.05 CoffeeTeam GS coffee machine:
No longer do you have to measure the coffee. The CoffeeTeam GS will brew from 2 to 10 cups automatically, grinding just the right amount of beans with no guesswork. The filter basket swings out and is easily washed. And because the grinding occurs in a separate chamber from the filter basket, there is no wasted coffee… a really great product! – Steven D.
