Plain-jane drip brewers beware, the Breville Precision Brewer promises an extended featureset more robust than any brewer on the market. The Precision Brewer starts with a dedicated Gold Cup setting that meets all standards for SCAA certification, including a brew temperature between 198 and 204°, a total brew time under 8 minutes, and an even wetting of the coffee bed. Other dedicated drip brew modes include 'fast' for a quicker brew that raises flow rate, and 'strong' which lowers it. You also get a 'My Brew' setting that gives you direct control over bloom time, flow rate and temperature. Each mode accepts brew sizes between 8 and 60 ounces, and lets you adjust for #4 cone or regular flat bottom filters (or the included goldtone reusable basket filter). This extra-flexible basket design also opens up brew options not usually possible in regular drip brewers, including automatic cold brewing, over-ice brewing, and settings for automatic pour overs with a V60 or Melitta in place of the drip basket. If you're a lover of multiple brew methods, the Precision Brewer's multi-use design is sure to impress.

Features and Functionality

  • Gold Cup Certified - The Breville Precision Brewer recently passed certification as a Gold Cup Brewer by the SCAA!
  • Fast Brew - Need your coffee a little faster? A dedicated fast brew option speeds up the process by
  • Cold Brew, Ice Brew - Also packed in are brew settings for a 12-hour cold brew steep, or a hot brew with half the water for ice brewing.
  • Single Cup - A dedicated single cup option lets you brew up to a 20 oz. mug of coffee for those on-the-go mornings.
  • Cone or Flat Basket - The Precision Brewer comes with different baskets for different brew sizes, and includes both a flat bottom metal filter basket (paper filters also fit) and a #4 cone basket.
  • Programming - Customizable settings for bloom time, temperature, flow rate, and auto-start programming give you extra options to find your favorite brew.
  • Stainless Steel Carafe - Coffee stays warm for ages with the insulated stainless steel carafe.
  • Quality Coffee - Calibrated to brew at the SCAA-rated 198-204°, the Precision Brewer makes a seriously good cup of coffee.
  • Versatile - Drip coffee? Check. Single cup? Check. Cold Brew? Yep. Iced Coffee? Good to go. Multi-use brewers are awesome.
  • High-capacity - Being able to brew up to 60 ounces of coffee at a time is fantastic for guests, parties, or just the caffeine-deprived.
  • A Little Tall - Standing at just under 16 inches, the Precision Brewer is a little tall to fit under some cabinets.
  • Options Abound - While the amount of functionality available on the Precision Brewer is truly incredible, it's definitely not a 'simple' brewer. You'll be spending some time finding your ideal settings.

I can't decide between this and the moccamaster. How about a crew review comparing the two to help me decide?
A shopper on Sep 8, 2017
Best Answer: Good idea! Stay tuned.

What's the pros/cons of this machine vs the Moccamaster?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2017
Best Answer: Great question!

Functionally, they both brew drip coffee excellently (both are SCAA Gold Cup certified).

The base Moccamaster has the benefit of a glass carafe and a mixing tube in the lid. The Technivorm is also easier to use (2 switches). That said, programming options are nonexistent, and you have limited options for brew size based on the model you are looking at.

The Precision Brewer is pretty much the polar opposite of the Technivorm. Lots of programming options, including options for single cups and other brew methods. You can control automatic programming, temperature, flow rate, bloom etc.—at the cost of more involved setup.

How well does the pour over feature work? Is the V60 adapter included?
A shopper on Sep 17, 2017
Best Answer: The pour over adapter is not included, however you can register your Precision Brewer online (there is a unique code in each box) and receive the adapter for free! I believe this promo lasts through the end of 2017.

This unit looks like a game changer in a sector of the coffee maker market that is poorly served but what is currently available - where form following function is totally absent. Is there any reason that it does not have a convection funnel like the Wilfa or Technivorm? This seemed to be a logical way to get an improved carafe of coffee.
Luigi on Sep 11, 2017
Best Answer: I agree, a mixing tube in the carafe would have been a nice touch. My guess is that they skipped it to keep the carafe more insulated

Is the optional glass carafe included or is it a special purchase? Will you be selling the glass carafe?
Rolando G on Sep 10, 2017
Best Answer: Hello! The glass carafe is not yet available! Stay tuned.
