I love coffee, especially the freshly ground and brewed coffee house coffee.  While visiting my in-laws I fell in love with a coffee maker that provides that same lovely taste at home:  The Cuisinart Grin 'N Brew with 10-cup thermal carafe

I wanted it so badly, but Scott wasn't willing to spend that much on a coffee maker.  (Sigh)

When we got our tax refund, we decided to go clothes shopping.  My favorite store, Kohl's, was having some pretty good sales, I had a 15% off everything coupon, and they were doing their Kohl's Cash promotion, so we went there.

Thanks to the Kohl's Cash we earned that day, and the fact that we really did need a new coffee maker, I was able to bring one home!

There is nothing like the heavenly scent of freshly brewed coffee, and since it has a thermal carafe, I no longer have to put up with coffee that tastes like it's been baking for hours.  Bliss!

The coffee is the Mocha Java blend from World Market (my other favorite store).  Rich and smooth with dark chocolate notes and very low acidity.  Just the way I like it.

And if you stop by the World Market website, don't forget to enter the contest.

How does the taste compare to french pressed coffee?

I've only had french pressed coffee a couple of times, and I'm not really a fan, so I can't give an unbiased account. The taste of the coffee that comes out of this reminds me of my favorite coffee house's freshly brewed coffee, though, if that helps.

I love the typo - 'grin 'n brew'! it's so appropriate. please don't fix it! :)

(face palm) I didn't even realize it was there. I have to agree, though, it is very appropriate. :D
