The previous model did not do this to well so this time around they improved it. Moreover, using the “grind off” feature you can brew coffee with already ground beans if you are in the mood.

Lastly, for safety reasons, the machine also has an auto off function which you can set to your preference. Now you will never arrive at work only to remember the coffee maker is still on at home. Another advantage of the Cuisinart DGB-650BC is it’s thermal carafe’s. Thermal carafe’s are the much better option because it keeps the coffee hot without the need for a heater plate.

The coffee stays hot for hours which is great for long mornings or when entertaining guests. Moreover, the design of the Cuisinart DGB-650BC makes it very easy to take a part and clean and some parts are even dishwasher proof.
