No “I” in Team!
Hello my foodie friends. We here at CTTC and a few of our Foodie Friends have been waiting for the arrival of this coffee machine for about a year! The machine, by Capresso, is called the Coffee Team Pro Plus! A great machine that grinds your beans fresh in a Conical Burr Grinder! Anyone who loves coffee knows that when your beans are that fresh your coffee is delicious! It even has a special setting for oily dark roast beans with extra grinding time for these slow moving beans. You can brew with the grinder or turn it off for your favorite pre-ground coffee. If you are like my father-in-law you’ll love that feature! He loves his “Chock full o’Nuts” pre-ground coffee! It also features a S/S Thermal Carafe which keeps your coffee hot for hours and in the same quality condition.

How Things Work
The fully removable water tank and bean container are just some of the most desirable features packed into the CoffeeTEAM PRO Plus line. It is widely known that fresh grinding your beans is the optimal way to prepare drip- style coffee, but for the first time ever, the CoffeeTEAM PRO Plus allows for complete access to the solid steel conical burr. The intricate design of the conical steel burrs provides for a higher gear reduction to slow down the grinding speed below 500 rpm. The slower the speed, the less heat that is imparted to the ground coffee thus preserving maximum aroma.
The two-step grind and clean process ensures no beans and minimal ground coffee are left in the grinder after use. Fully adjustable grind and cup settings make it easy to craft the perfect brew no matter your strength preference, and the all new "Oily" bean setting, and the redesigned, low friction bean container automatically compensates for slower feeding dark roasts.
Stop in to my family business at 46 Marion Ave. and let’s have some coffee and sing the Chock full o’Nuts original jingle that my father-in-law sings everyday:
“Chock full o’Nuts is that heavenly coffee,
Heavenly coffee, heavenly coffee.
Chock full o’Nuts is that heavenly coffee,
Better coffee Rockefeller’s money can’t buy!” (Later changed to “Millionares”)
