Durable excellence


After reading epinion reviews on this unit, I purchased one second-hand off of the internet about four years ago. Today (Sat. Jan 10, 2009) it died.... I love fresh ground coffee and this unit has performed exceptionally well. I learned to live with...

Fresh ground coffee the way I like it!

Weak latch mechanism

A quirky coffee maker, but worth it for the lazy coffee drinker


Although I've had this coffee maker for about four years now, I dread having to look for a new one. It's definitely quirky - but we've lived together tolerably on the whole. I broke the latch on it about 3 years ago--the filter doesn't really want to ...

Good pot of coffee, not too hard to clean

Flimsy latch feature, grinds too fine, weak coffee without banging filter to knock down grounds

Great coffee maker for those who like to grind


I've owned my Melitta for about 3 years now and I am really happy with it. We've had other grind and brew machines but this one was the easiest to clean, wasted less coffee beans, and didn't need paper filters. I never got the hang of using the timer. ...

No need for paper filters, easy to clean, easy to use

Made of plastic so it won't last long, no heating plate to keep coffee warm

Melitta Mill and Brew: A simplified grind and brew coffee maker.


This is an easy to clean, easy to use grind and brew coffee maker. Unlike other units, this unit grinds the beans in its own permanent filter. This way you have the freshest beans possible that morning when the coffee timer turns on this appliance. ...

Timer/clock, easy to clean, easy to use, cheaper than other units, grinds the beans internally.

Not a cone filter, one latch broke.

Another one died


The Mill and Brew is such a convenience, it's easy to take fresh ground coffee for granted. Without the Mill and Brew, fresh ground coffee is a hassle and pre-ground coffee tastes bad. Too bad the coffee maker won't last more than 6 months. We brew...

Easy way to fresh ground coffee

Poor life expectancy

Melitta Mill & Brew Coffeemaker Next to Perfect


I have been using my New Melitta Mill & Brew Coffeemaker for a couple weeks now, and I love it. It makes a great cup of coffee. Just like anything else, it takes a little getting use to, in figuring out how to take it apart, to clean it. But it is...

Priced right. Good hot coffee. Quite grinding. Easy to clean.

Have to measure coffee bean each time. Can't prefill bean reservoir.

to Mill is human..... to mill AND brew is divine!


As the snow gently piles up outside, I'm sipping a fresh brewed cup of Millstone French roast, courtesy of my recently purchased Melitta Mill and Brew coffee maker. Not only has the quality of my cup of coffee improved, but making it is now more ...

2 in 1 design, timer, good tasting coffee, good price

none so far

Better than Cuisinart at half the price!


We recently had to toss the Cuisinart $120.00 coffee pot that was a present three years ago. It was not working properly and a nightmare to clean. After contacting their customer service many times, with no response, I gave up and saw an ad for this...

Easy to use, great price and you can pour it without spilling!

Great product, would buy again but with thermal carafe


We received this coffeemaker as a Christmas gift in December 2003. During the 4 months we have had it we have made coffee an average of 2-5 times/week. And we are very happy with this coffeemaker. I love coffee, drink it every day, but don't consider ...

Easy to use and clean design, fairly quick clean-up.Makes yummy coffee quickly.

Wish I had thermal carafe, glass doesn't keep coffee hot for a long time.

Don't be fooled....this could NOT be any better!!


After reading review after review on here about this coffee maker, I went to Target to buy one. Sure enough- there it was for $59.99 and with replacement parts on the shelf too! I brought it home and skimmed the very simple directions. Within 11 ...

Fills easy, no paper filters, fast brewing, quiet, no mess, fun and good coffee!

Only makes 10 cups, that's all I can come up with!
