Shortcoming of Grind And Brew Coffee Makers

There was mentioned grind and brew coffee makers some of which have the settings for strength of coffee, which is calculated by selection of coffee strength and amount of coffee.

A common shortcoming of coffee maker grinders with such settings is that if you set a higher strength (meaning more grounds per cup) and the maximum amount of cups (meaning more cups), you'll get fewer cups of coffee.

Suppose you select a high strength and then you select 10 cups of coffee (for a coffee machine with ten cups capacity), you'll get fewer than ten cups because there would not be enough beans in the hopper for brewing that many strong cups of coffee. Stronger coffee requires more grounds per cup of coffee.

So you won't have that much control over your coffee brewing. It is a known shortcoming of electric drip automatic coffee makers with grinders.
