Capresso CoffeeTeam Luxe Coffee Maker

Updated on January 26, 2010

The Capresso Coffee Team Luxe offers maximum control in brewing, allowing you to change the grind setting, the amount brewed, and the time it is brewed. This is a combination drip coffee maker with a steel burr grinder and digital brewing system. It can be programmed to grind beans and brew between  2 to 10 cups of coffee into a 50-ounce glass carafe at any time within a 24 hr period. With the "Stop-And-Serve" function you can pause the brewing to pour one cup before the entire drip process is finished. Having separate controls for the grinder and drip system also lets you brew coffee using pre-ground coffee if you desire. Charcoal water filters eliminate over 80% of impurities. This Capresso coffee maker is available in black or white.

Capresso CoffeeTeam Luxe Coffee Maker Controls

The Capresso Coffee Team Luxe features extensive controls for grinding and brewing but remarkably keeps them all clear and easy to use. Controls are placed in a compact, easy to reach panel on the lower front of the machine. The grind fineness settings, located on top of the machine in front of the bean hopper, give you four options in a range from fine to coarse. The bean hopper holds 6 ounces, enough to make 20 - 30 cups of coffee. After filling the hopper with beans and the reservoir with water, the grinder engages when the on/off button is pressed. A small window allows you to see the ground coffee move into the filter for brewing. You can remove a small panel above the feeder channel and clean it to prevent grounds from clogging.

If you already have ground coffee, you can brew without using the grinder. Using the LCD display and control panel, you can set the desired amount of coffee you would like to brew as well as the flavor strength of the final product. Both of these settings change theset amount of coffee that is ground. This machine can also be programmed to grind and brew up to 24 hours in advance and offers a 2-hour auto shut off after brewing. It can also be turned off manually using the on/off button. If you would like to pour a cup before brewing is finished, there is a "Stop-And-Serve" function that will pause the brewing cycle for 20 seconds to allow you to do so..
