The only other issue may be that the machine's sweet spot does really rely on being able to put a bunch of beans in the hopper and being able to set an alarm or start it easily. Switching types every morning would mean needing to measure it out each time so that may kind of defeat the convenience purpose. Jun 5, 2013
You can schedule brews though which is what I typically do during the week in the mornings. Dec 11, 2013
FYI I only use bottled/filtered water in the machine. Either 'Poland Spring" spring water, or water from the 'filtered' refrigerator tap.
I hope this helps. May 8, 2014

Good coffee...when it workedReview by Robdeedo
Price Value Quality
Loved the concept, design, automation, & taste of the coffee this machine produced. However, about 3 months after purchase, it simply stopped brewing & warming the coffee, despite following all of the instructions for care. Customer service was great and sent another machine. This one looked refurbished and lasted about 1 month before replicating the problem. Our 3rd unit lasted approximately 3-4 months before we cut our losses and asked for a refund.

I really like this coffee maker!Review by Brett
Value Quality Price
First, a big thanks to SCG for posting all sorts of helpful videos and product comparisons- it really helped me choose a coffee maker.
Anyway, I really like this coffee maker. If you choose "single cup" mode, you can specify the size and strength of the coffee you want. The machine adjusts the water amount, amount of beans to grind, and how long the coffee steeps (it holds the coffee inside the filter for a set amount of time based on how strong you want your coffee, then releases it). So what this means is I can fill up the machine full of water (10 cups), fill up the bean hopper and then when I want just a cup of coffee i just select single cup and press go. I no longer have to measure anything - water or beans. The machines takes care of it. For me, this is the best thing. Oh and the fact that the coffee it makes is quite good.
Anyway, I am normally an Amazon shopper, but since I felt like I had made so much use of the info on the SCG website, I decided I would buy from SCG even if a little more pricey since I really appreciated the info and time they put into their video reviews. As it tuns out, they were actually cheaper than Amazon. I am a pleased customer and would recommend the coffee maker and SCG to friends.

Don't buy it!Review by afi
Price Value Quality
Let me start by saying that ALL my appliances are Breville. I love them all because they look sleek, clean looking and you don't have to hide them. They are wonderful. When I wanted to buy a coffee maker, I naturally thought Breville is IT. I read the reviews and they were BAD! However, since my own experience with other appliances were great, I bought one. I am very sorry I did, because everything I'd read about this machine, unfortunately, is true. I am going to give it to one of our staff in the building, if they want it and buy my family a Cuisinart which I've read great reviews about.
This made me very sad indeed:(

Best out thereReview by Kim

I am a serious coffee person. I have been through so many coffee makers that it is ridiculous. So we purchased a super-automatic espresso maker and that is great but.. This coffee maker really does compete with it. Smooth coffee every time and it is the same every time. Very dependable and looks great too. If i ever had to replace my espresso maker I would purchase another one of these!!
