The Capresso CoffeeTEAM TS (465.05) debuts yet again as the world's best thermal coffee maker with a built-in grinder. In addition to new advances in engineering listed below, the CoffeeTEAM TS has a redesigned thermal carafe. The carafe itself is still a 10 cup stainless steel vacuum design, which keeps coffee suitably hot for up to 4 hours in a full pot. The new and exciting feature is the lid. The old CoffeeTEAM Therm had a precarious lid that you partially unscrewed in order to pour coffee. The lid on the CoffeeTEAM TS has a release lever just over the handle. Depress the lever with your thumb to pour coffee. Let go and it reseals the carafe.
You will be pleasantly surprised with the new Capresso CoffeeTEAM TS. Capresso has kept intact the legendary 1000 Watt brewing system that brews at 200 degrees and has enhanced the CoffeeTEAM TS with a number of key features. First and foremost, the old swing-arm style basket has been replaced by a self-sealing ground coffee chute. This new design maintains the protection of the grinder to prevent steam from entering the chamber and clogging it. A lot of work went into engineering this feature, and yet Capresso still found a way to lower the cost of the CoffeeTEAM TS. Overhead space requirements have also been reduced with the new pull-out door for ground coffee that simplifies not only cleaning, but also brewing with pre-ground coffee. The Capresso CoffeeTEAM TS also boasts an easy-read digital screen with user friendly controls.
The Capresso CoffeeTEAM TS still sports the ever popular conical burr grinder that has made them famous. The Capresso CoffeeTEAM TS has the same grinder that is found in the Capresso Infinity Burr Grinder and all Jura-Capresso Impressa Automatic Coffee Centers. This grinder, precision-made in Switzerland, turns slowly to prevent the beans from heating up and losing flavor. Four fineness settings allow for an ideal grind size for light, medium, or dark beans (the lighter the bean, the finer the setting). Simply slide the filter assembly underneath the grinder, turn on the brew cycle (or set the Auto On), and the CoffeeTEAM TS does the rest of the work for you.
The Capresso CoffeeTEAM TS allows you to program the amount of coffee you want to grind: choose from 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10 cups and select mild, regular or strong. It also offers you the choice to brew from pre-ground coffee if you need a quick decaf or flavored coffee and do not want to change your beans. An AM/PM Programmable Clock/Timer lets you set the time when to grind and brew automatically. The "Stop-And-Serve" function allows you to enjoy a cup of coffee before brewing is completely finished, and the heating element will automatically shut off immediately after the water is completely brewed.
Coffee experts agree on at least one aspect of making coffee - fresh ground coffee makes for the best possible beverage. Those wonderful smells floating around local coffee shops are made of the aromas released when coffee beans are ground. Aroma is the key ingredient to the flavor of any style of coffee. Once coffee beans have been ground, aroma continues to escape, so the Capresso CoffeeTeam TS offers a hassle-free integrated conical burr grinder preserve as much flavor as possible.
Chlorine makes water taste different, so it also affects the taste of coffee. The Capresso CoffeeTEAM TS includes a replaceable charcoal water filter that removes most of the chlorine and other unwanted tastes from your tap water. The CoffeeTEAM TS will remind you when to replace your filter, and we offer a 3-pack, so you will always have one handy. The Capresso CoffeeTEAM TS offers premium coffee filtration as well with the dishwasher-safe GoldTone filter which eliminates all of those wasted paper filters.

My old Capresso made the best coffee ever. My new one is not making as good a pot. I'm still adjusting the settings, so I'm hopeful that I find the right settings. The coffee is good, but I'm shooting for perfection.
I thought i had found the unit to replace an old favorite, but it didn't quite produce the temperature my wife and i prefer. Was treated great and had no problem returning coffee maker.
