A shopper asked: I drink regular coffee while my wife drinks decaf. How easy is it to change types? Jun 1, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Sean O: It is possible to use any type of coffee you want, including ground. However, keep in mind that you will have to clean/dry the basket chute attachment after each use if you are super picky and don't want some grinds from either kind. For your purposes you would probably want to use paper filters so that you don't have to dry the gold filter basket every time.

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.

William S: It's extremely easy to change out beans with the Breville hopper, hovever, when you take out the beams there are still some left in the machine, it's only about 5 beans but you should know that if you can't have any caffeine there will be some left over from the last grind. I don't think it should matter but just thought I'd let you know! Jun 6, 2013
Reply to William Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Michael T: Not very easy. You would need to pull out the hopper (not difficult) and also pull out any extra coffee beans that were about to be ground and since this unit is slightly cumbersome that would be a pain in the arse. As a solution you could use the "pre-ground" setting for one type of coffee where you have to put in preground beans, most likely decaf, and then use the grinder for your other type of bean. Jul 8, 2013
Reply to Michael Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Rolando B: well, you can use pre-ground decaff which is ridiculously easy. if you used beans for both, just pop out the hopper. but it would be a little tedious to pick out about the dozen or so beans that remain in the grinder funnel Jul 27, 2013

A shopper asked: id like to know how long does it take to make single serving like 8ounces? Dec 10, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael T: depending on potency of brew you select (mild verses bold and then intense) and size of serving, it can take anywhere from 5 minutes to as long as 8~9 minutes. It can't really be compared to a k-cup in speed but a k-cup can't compare in flavor. Dec 13, 2013
Reply to Michael Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Kevin R: It takes about 5 minutes or so. After the first cup it might be quicker because it doesn't need to heat up.

You can schedule brews though which is what I typically do during the week in the mornings.

Krista A asked: I have gone through three of these machines in one year due to the water sensor not working. Am I doing something wrong? We love this machine, but keep on having this same problem. We descale at least once a month and follow all other cleaning recommendations. May 7, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Rolando B: I have not had such issue. I've had the machine for nine months. it gets used twice a day on average. The 'de-scale' has come on twice in that time. I've followed the recommended procedure ( I run a fresh vinegar solution through twice) and then follow with 3 water only cycles. Never had a problem.
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.

Michael T: Are you using tap water? I've had the machine a little over a year now with no problem. I'm using a ceramic candle stick water filter which removes all sediment from my coffee water. May 8, 2014

Boyan N asked: I am not able to change the number of carafes? Am I using a different model of the youbrewer? Mar 7, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: I am not sure what you mean. This Breville YouBrew uses just one carafe, and there is a glass carafe model or a thermal carafe model, but they are not interchangeable. Hope this clarifies, but let me know if you have other questions! Mar 7, 2014
Reply to Teri Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Boyan N: Once you filled up the water tank, there is one button for carafe coffee brew and one for a cup coffee brew option. If i choose the carafe option, I am not able to change the indication for # of cups in the carafe and the video clear shows that. Does this depend on the model of the Breville Youbrew or I am doing something wrong. Thanks so much! By the way, I am a big fan of your website and videos! Thanks Mar 7, 2014
Teri KStaff: Glad you're enjoying the site and videos! Once you have a tank full of water, you should be able to just press that carafe button and select the desired number of cups you wish to brew. If your unit is not allowing you to select a smaller amount of cups, then there may be an issue and I'd suggest contacting Breville directly at 866-273-8455. Mar 7, 2014
Sal T asked: the spout on the thermal carafe pours horribly! can I get another 12 cup thermal carafe to fit this machine? May 15, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: Unfortunately we do not offer a replacement 12-Cup Carafe that is compatible with this Breville You Brew, and I'm sorry you're unhappy with the way it pours! Generally I have found that if I pour slowly I won't get any of the spills I sometimes encounter when I pour a bit too fast. I hope this helps! May 15, 2013

I really like this coffee maker!

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.

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:(

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!!
