The Russell Hobbs Platinum Grind and Brew Coffee Maker 14899 grinds fresh coffee beans for a quality cup of coffee every time, producing from 2 to 10 cups. Designed and manufactured by Russell Hobbs as part of the Platinum Collection, the automatic coffee maker allows you to choose what strength of coffee you prefer--from light to dark--it’s your choice. Or if you’re too busy for the full process, simply use filter coffee instead for the same great taste. It’s easy-to- use and with its digital automatic control allows you to programme its brewing times for maximum convenience.
How do you like your coffee?
Need a strong coffee boost first thing to kick-start your day or looking for something milder and lighter? The Platinum Grind and Brew Coffee Maker allows you to choose how you take your coffee, efficiently grinding the beans to bring you the brew of your choice. Simply select the strength you prefer, whether it is light, medium or dark to enjoy a cup of coffee the way you like it.
Just a few steps and you’re done
The Platinum Grind and Brew Coffee Maker is simple and easy-to-use. Place the coffee beans in the coffee mill at the rear of the machine and using the carafe, fill the water reservoir with fresh, cold water. Decide the strength of your coffee and how many cups you’d like and then hit the grind button. That familiar grinding noise should soon start, alerting you that your coffee’s on its way as it begins to filter and brew the coffee into the glass carafe.
No coffee beans? No problem--use ground coffee instead
No coffee beans doesn’t mean no coffee with the Platinum Grind and Brew. If you’re low on beans but have ground/ filter coffee to hand, simply use this instead. Rather than adding the beans in the mill, spoon filter coffee into the permanent filter section at the front of the machine allowing you to keep your coffee fresh with a full, rich flavour.
Say goodbye to paper filters with the permanent filter
Paper filters can be a fussy business, slowing down the speed at which you make your coffee so the Platinum Grind and Brew offers a permanent filter. This mainstay of the machine is easy to remove and easy to clean allowing you to re-use over and over again. No more fiddly paper filters that have to be thrown away and replaced, now there’s just one filter to use.
Programme your machine for coffee when you want it
Waking up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee is a treat that can be enjoyed every day with the Platinum Grind and Brew’s digital automatic programmable control. This feature enables you to set what time of day your coffee brews so you don’t have to manually begin the process each time and also has an attractive digital clock display with blue back light-- perfect for morning coffee drinkers.
Grab a cup while it's still brewing
You don’t have to wait for brewing to finish to grab a cup--just remove the carafe and pour. The non-drip valve prevents coffee dripping onto the hot plate for up to 20 seconds, allowing you time to pour a cup without making a mess and disrupting brewing.
Warm coffee for hours
Coffee is best enjoyed once freshly brewed, but there’s no need to pour away any leftover liquid that has been sat there for a while. The Platinum Grind and Brew’s hotplate enables your coffee to stay warm for hours after brewing, making one pot of coffee last even longer. This saves you from unnecessary repeat brewings, making it a more economical and time-saving choice.
Stylish and smart
The Platinum Grind and Brew Coffee Maker 14889 is part of the Russell Hobbs Platinum Collection bringing style and function into the kitchen.

I've been using this coffeemaker 1-3 times almost every day for over 18 months now and I wanted to take the time to offer some thoughts on my longer term experience.
I have had no issues at all with the machine. It does require quite frequent descaling but we live in a very hard water region and the descaling process is straight forward and returns the machine to perfect performance (it gets a little slow as it scales up). I have not bothered to change the activated carbon filter and not seen any issues. I no longer use an additional filter paper due to laziness (although my original comments stand) and I've grown completely used to the three "design flaws" I highlighted, I no longer notice them.
Most importantly, the bean grinder has continued to perform flawlessly - this is a great piece of kit and I commend it to any serious coffee lover.

This is a relatively large (24cm wide, 23cm deep and 39cm high) coffee maker which, in summary, brews a great cup of coffee but loses a five star rating due to three design issues which I will return to at the end of this review.
The machine can brew the seeming home standard of up to 10 proper cups of coffee at a time (NOT the tiny 125ml capacity which was stated in the manufacturer's product description on the Amazon product page at the time when I received my review order).Read more ›
Firstly, you can't get strong coffee out of a "mild" coffee bean, however you do it. So you have to buy strong flavoured/dark roasted beans. I think you'll be seriously limited buying supermarket beans, most only have a couple of types and you have no idea how long they have been on the shelf for. Look online for a "Bean Shop" (I use [...] - try the Cuba Turquino!) and pick beans which are rated "strong", full bodied or dark roasted or some combination! The online retailers I use roast their coffee the day they send it out, it gets to me next day - you just can't beat it, its more pricey but it's really worth it - that's why you get a machine like this!
Secondly, 2-cup = 1 mug and yes, coffee granules absorb water so you have to allow a little extra. When you want to end with 4 cups in the jug, you have to put in something like 5 cups of water (if you use the jug to fill the machine)
The machine will use all the water you put in, but will only grind the amount of beans you specify with the buttons. This is the key to getting the strength you want. You can put in as much or as little water as you like, it doesn't care - I have seen some reviews suggesting you have to match the water level to the grind setting (2-10) - you don't! To my taste, matching the water to the grind setting gets you a fairly weak coffee... So, if you want strong, grind more beans and use less water, e.g.Read more ›
- There are always some beans left in the chamber.
- The viewing window that allows you to see ground coffee as it passes through always has residue, it's dry but it would be good to be able to clean it daily. It is possible but it would need a couple of screws removing so its designed to be as is so just irritating rather than functionally deficient.
But it's a 5.
- This is being compared to others at three or four times the price.
- This grinds beans fresh and makes you coffee
- Easy instructions to set up
- Keeps the coffee hot
- Overall, easy to clean (except for mentioned above)
- Allows you to easily select different strengths
- Easy to use timer so you wake up to fresh ground coffee - both the smell, the taste and the experience.
I read reviews of other machines from people who apparently are coffee experts and need to have excellence and perfection in the morning.
I'm neither - I just want a decent cup of coffee to wake up to that grinds itself from bean to cup and stays hot.
This does all that for a decent price that is a third / quarter of others and it's therefore a 5.
