Grinder coffee machines, also called Bean to cup, are an essential subset of the drip coffee machine sector. Being able to prepare a large quantity of coffee, need not be at odds with enjoying the aromas of freshly ground coffee. To prove it here, we have the AEG KAM 300.

Although this is a high range coffee machine, AEG is an experienced manufacturer of standard drip coffee machines (we have already analysed their AEG KF7900 model). Today, we present a bean to cup coffee machine with nine different grinding thicknesses.

Aeg KAM300 Review

The AEG KAM 300 has a digital timer that allows us to program the coffee machine as far in advance as we need. Also, it has all the usual controls of a coffee machine with a timer. However, on this occasion, they are arranged in a somewhat confusing way that makes their operation perhaps less intuitive than others.

In our opinion, the buttons with related functions are too far apart from each other. Aside from this detail, as we say, the functions of this coffee machine are the common ones in this type of coffee machine. We can set the timer using one button for hours (h) and another for the minutes (m).

Overall, the appearance of the AEG KAM 300 is quite robust, a feeling reinforced by the dimensions and perhaps somewhat excessive weight of the machine. If we look down, we find the classic anti-drip tray in the lower base, and the glass carafe (not thermal) to collect the coffee already prepared.

And to finish off, let’s go over the grinder: the AEG KAM 300 has a standard size steel grinder that allows you to choose up to 9 different thicknesses, from the finest to the coarsest grind. These nine thicknesses are also within the average for the sector.

Why buy an AEG KAM 300?

Coffee machines with a timer are relatively common in the drip coffee machine sector, however, with a built-in grinder are somewhat less common, although there is also a wide range.

If you are looking for a drip coffee machine that combines both functions, i.e. that allows you to grind coffee and brew it instantly, and that also allows you to program it several hours in advance, then your search is reduced to just a few models.

One such example is this AEG KAM 300, a complete coffee maker with good quality materials and a price that is logically in line with the high performance it offers.

The best we can offer is the Russell Hobbs Grind & Brew as an alternative that meets both requirements.
