Product Description

No matter your coffee cravings, the Breville YouBrew Coffee Maker with Built-In Grinder and Adjustable Flavor Control can handle it. Feeling like a 12-cup carafe kind of morning? No problem. Prefer to just have a single cup? Your YouBrew's built-in grinder can grind the amount of beans you want, plus gives you the option to choose your brew strength, flavor profile and, of course, size of cup. With the YouBrew BrewIQ system, you can relax knowing that the right amount of coffee is dosed with the right amount of water, all heated to the ideal temperature. A bravo is certainly in order for Breville.

How the Breville YouBrew Coffee Maker Works

  • Fill the water tank by pressing open the flip-top lid. Pour the desired amount of cold, preferably filtered water into the tank using a jug or provided carafe.
  • The LCD screen will indicate the amount of water in the tank as it is filled and the machine will beep when the maximum amount of water is reached.
  • Pre-warm the carafe, mug or travel cup you are using as it will help maintain the coffee's optimal temperature.
  • Select the Carafe or Single Cup Mode. For Single Cups, the LCD screen will display a cup symbol and the current cup size selected.
  • Select from 9 size options. Select the Brew Strength or 'PRE-GROUND' Coffee Setting, you will have 7 strength settings from 'MILD', 'STRONG', to 'INTENSE' or for the 'PRE-GROUND' setting.
  • Select the Flavor Setting and choose from 5 flavor settings from 'LITE' to 'BOLD.'
  • Press the START | CANCEL button. The grinder will commence grinding the correct amount of coffee for the selected brew size and strength. If the 'PRE-GROUND' coffee setting has been selected, the grinder will be disabled.
  • The LCD screen will display 'PRE-HEATING' as the water is heated to the optimal temperature and 'BREWING' as the coffee is dispensed into the carafe.
  • To stop the cycle at any time, press the START | CANCEL button.

  • Features & Functionality of the Breville YouBrew Coffee Maker

    • Built-In Burr Grinder - For freshly ground coffee with every cup, carafe or brew
    • LCD Screen - Easy to read functionality and settings that tell you how long it will take to brew your cup or carafe o' joe
    • Bean Hopper Locking System - The half pound coffee bean hopper locking system makes refilling easy as it seals the base of the bean hopper for easy removal, storage and transfer of coffee beans
    • Built-in Grinder - Grind your favorite whole beans to order and fill your cup with freshly brewed java.
    • Programmability - Unlike the average coffeemaker, you can tailor your cup of coffee to your liking with the YouBrew. Pick your beans and roast, brew strength, flavor profile and whether you want a single cup, travel mug or carafe.
    • Loud Grinder - While we love the functionality of the built-in grinder, just know that grinding your beans in the morning will be quite loud.

    Can you just get hot water on demand?
    David H on Dec 8, 2013
    Best Answer: No, it is not set up for that. This is a great coffee maker though. I bought mine in March of this year and if I had any complaint, it would be that the grinder is quite loud. If you like strong coffee, it makes a nice bold cup. I am very happy with this coffee maker.

    Does this product deliver a good HOT cup of tasty coffee ? Our Cuisineart, even with a thermal carafe, delivers WARM coffee. When brewing into the carafe, is the coffee HOT ?
    Cyndie S on Mar 24, 2013
    Best Answer: Providing that you preheat the thermal carafe, YES, this Breville YouBrew does brew a great hot cup of coffee. However if you do not preheat and are brewing right into the cold carafe, then the coffee temperature will be lowered a fair amount. As an alternative, you could choose the Glass Carafe version of the YouBrew.

    i just bought my 1st Breville machine w/ Burr Grinder. Is it normal for this machine to grind the entire amount of beans in the hopper? It almost over flowed with coffee grinds this morning. I had a Cuisinart and it was adjustable so the basket never was filled to the top.
    JavaKiki on Feb 2, 2015
    Best Answer: I guess it depends on how many beans you put in the hopper. If you are brewing a 12-cup pot then it will use a lot of beans. I normally brew around 6 cups and I probably have around 1/4 cup of beans in the hopper. You can judge as you use the machine. I also many times do not grind, I will use the pre-ground and put it in the filter. I/we are enjoying our machine. Hope this answers your question. Good luck, keep experimenting use less beans if you are getting too many in the filter.

    I am looking to replace a seven or eight year old Cuisenart Grind and Brew which has recently been dumping coffee and grinds all over our kitchen (lovely when it's set to go off on weekday and you walk down to enjoy your coffee already brewed and find that mess). Has anyone experienced this with the Breville?
    Lainie on Feb 14, 2015
    Best Answer: The only way that would happen is if you are doing the automatic grind and you forget to put the filter in the filter container. I have done that before and yes you will get the coffee all over. If you set up the coffee pot properly no issues and easy cleanup. The nice part about this Breville is that you can either grind your own or use ground. I am very happy with ours.

    Being a freak about my coffee (my only remaining vice...unfortunately...) I have a question regarding the filtering method of the YouBrew. Do you have to insert a paper basket filter, or a paper cone? Also, how have you found the variation to be with the ability to change the length of time that the coffee grinds are immersed? I am currently using a Clever Little Coffee Dripper (cross between a french press and drip cone) and have been experimenting alot with water temp, grind and immersion time...big differences in taste. I actually even found a way to make Starbucks beans drinkable (just in case any of you are unfortunate enough to have any, I found that cutting way down on your water temp...below 190...helps quite a bit) but I digress...Anyway, if any of you can share your experiences and let me know about the filtering (and grind disposal) I'll greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
    Diane C on Feb 25, 2013
    Best Answer: Diane,
    I find that the adjustments or settings on the system work quite nice. You do notice a difference in the settings. I can tell you that I have had Made coffee that is light visible or dark is mud when held up to a window. Keep in mind that you notice more of a difference between single cup making compared to a full pot of coffee. For a single cup you are able to adjust the strength and flavor. While making a full pot of coffee you are only able to adjust the strength and not the flavor. The flavor goals from light to bold and strength goes mild to intense. It does come with a reusable goldtone filter. It is also able to take normal 8 to 12 cup paper filters not cone shape. I would suggest using the paper filters for a full pot of coffee and use the goldtone filter for single cup making or you will be using many fiters. When making single cups, I set the settings to a mild too strong cup and on the next round of singlecup making l set the adjustment to pre-grounds In strength and bold for flavor. This allows you to get 2 cups out of a fresh ground coffee. You can use preground coffee you do not have to use the grinder all of the time.As far as disposal of grounds, it is easy as cake. The filter basket has a cover on it that the filter sits in. When you are done you simply pick up the basket and empty into the trash. Only complaint I have with the system is clean and care. Every time you use the grinder you will have about five minutes of cleanup. Not that it makes a mess but you will have some grounds built up at the wheel from the grineder and there are a few pieces to remove to clean. Oh and brew time is the same for a cup or pot. The system makes a fantastic cup of coffee. It has all the bells and whistles you can ask in a coffee maker. If your looking for quick, hot, and simple, I would chose the Bonavita. Hotter coffee, great coffee, half the price, a lot less maintenance and cleaning. The Youbrew requires a thorough cleaning about every two months.

    I will like to know what types of beans people usually buy... Medium roast? Dark roast? Any experience with both types of roast? I like my coffee to be strong yet not bitter and low acidity. Any brands?
    A shopper on Aug 23, 2014
    Best Answer: It's hard to imagine anyone enjoying coffee stronger than my husband. (I'm not a coffee drinker... but he is and he's really serious about it). His coffee beans of choice are French Roast (dark by definition). His other preference is Espresso Roast (technically even darker). Seems to me the brand of coffee would probably make a huge difference, so you may have to experiment a bit to find the one you like the best. He said his coffee is never bitter with the Breville... But as far as acidity? He said he's had coffee both ways and can't tell alot of diff (maybe because he drinks his coffee sooooooooo strong???).

    His setting for a single cup is:
    All the way to the top BOLD
    All the way to max STRONG (he tried the intense and loves it... but said it's almost too much of a buzz)

    His setting for a carafe is:
    All the way to max STRONG (he tried the intense and loves it... but again said it's almost too much of a buzz)

    One additional comment:
    I bought him an extra basket... That lets him make a carafe in the morning and while the basket is drip drying he has another one to use for a single cup in the evening after dinner. We use paper coffee filters... not the mesh one the machine comes with.

    Bottom line? He said it's the best cup of coffee he's ever had!

    Does this have a plate that also stays warm to keep the carafe or cup of coffee heated? One downfall to most of these carafe types is that the companies feel it keeps the coffee hot so the bottom plate doesn't stay heated and automatically shut off. Most carafes that are included are not as good as a commercial type you can purchase separately. They don't keep the heat long. How does this carafe included do? How long would you say the coffee stays hot for once its brewed?
    Karen J on Jan 7, 2013
    Best Answer: This machine does not have a heater below the carafe. For optimal flavor, this is considered preferable as one of the reasons coffee develops off/burnt/bitter flavors is the bottom hot plate burning your coffee.

    When I leave a fuller pot, 6+ cups, the carafe does a great job keeping my coffee hot for hours. 3+? I haven't timed it, so that is a rough estimate. :) However, if I leave under 5 cups I would expect it to stay hot only for 1.5-2 hours. The cups referenced here are coffee cups and not standard 8 oz cups.

    When making coffee just for me, I tend to brew 6 cups at a time. This is enough for me to have 2 full insulated 16 oz - 20 oz mugs 1.5 hrs apart and still have hot, freshish coffee. On weekends, I do this 2-3 times per day rather than making fuller pots - it's easy to do and tastier. (If you drink as many cups as I do per day this makes sense... though I recommend finding a good decaf to mix in.)

    The combination of this Breville thermal carafe and my Contigo insulated travel mugs (the mugs keep hot beverages hot for ~4 hours) keeps me full of hot coffee all day.

    I've found the only less satisfactory elements of this carafe are: 1. it is quite hard to get the last bit of coffee out of it, you end up fully turning it upside down - silly. 2. There's no way to 'close' it so that I can cart it about like a crazy person without spilling. But I hear that normal people don't dance with their carafes. So you might be ok. Or own a thermos. Maybe both.

    This is more of a curiosity question. I find this coffee maker great. My question concerns the brew basket container, not the filter. I notice there is a small door on the side of the basket that looks like it has no function since it opens to what would be the side of the basket. Can you tell me if this has a function and if so what is it for?
    Mike T on Feb 26, 2015
    Best Answer: From page 25 of instruction book:
    "The flap on the side of the coffee
    basket is the steam baffle which
    assists with water overflow if the
    coffee basket becomes blocked. The
    flap is hinged from the bottom for easy
    cleaning. Pull the flap downwards to
    clean, however always click it back
    into the upright position before use."

    I just purchased this coffee maker and it makes very strong coffee even at the mildest setting. Is mine faulty? I do enjoy a bold cup of java but... The basket seems to be very full no matter what the setting
    A shopper on Aug 26, 2013
    Best Answer: I received mine about 4 days ago so I've been experimenting with the settings. It does make an intense cup of joe at any setting, but I have noticed a slight difference between intensity settings...not much though.
    I did find out that it will brew even if the beans are empty...there is no warning that the bean dispenser needs filling.

    My office has two of these bad boys but they constantly jam up. We do a pretty good job regularly cleaning them, but probably once a week or more the grinder decides to jam and makes hot water instead of coffee. Any suggestions to help prevent this?
    A shopper on Jul 11, 2013
    Best Answer: I have owned for almost a year & it has only done that once when someone had not cleaned it properly. The disc should be cleaned after each use. I usually just use the damp paper towel I dry my hands with after washing true basket and filter. Also, I use a paper towel to run through the coffee shute in the basket if it has not had time to completely dry between uses. If that is moist, it is much more likely to block up. I have yet to get an indication that the burrs need to be cleaned. Hope this helps.

    eddie R on May 29, 2013
    Best Answer: Hi Eddie,

    If you mean blade grinder vs burr grinder, it's a burr grinder :) Otherwise, I am not sure what you're asking - but it is enclosed in the unit and distributes the ground coffee directly into the filter.

    Can I use the Breville Glass Carafe with this model instead of the Thermal one? I find the thermal carafe difficult to pour, and I think I like glass carafes better overall.
    Ces P on May 21, 2013
    Best Answer: Unfortunately the two carafes are not very compatible, because though they fit the same on both models of the Breville You Brew, the thermal maker does not have the hot plate that the glass carafe model uses.

    Hi. How is that machine with oily coffee beans?. Thank you.
    A shopper on Apr 1, 2013
    Best Answer: Mine has worked quite well with oily beans thus far - I have been using it nearly daily for several months. I tend toward darker roasts - which tend to be rather oily on the outside. The area where the freshly ground beans enter the filter can get gummy - but the brush they provide cleans this out well enough. I take a damp sponge to the area once in a while to keep things clean. So far, no problems.

    I have the Breville Infuser and Breville Smart Grinder. Full disclosure, I didn't get them at Seattle Coffee Gear because I didn't know about you all at that time. My previous coffee maker was a dual steam/drip espresso/coffee maker. After a few years I decided to move up to a "real" espresso maker. After a couple of pounds of beans I have finally got the grinder and espresso machine pretty much dialed in and have perfected my tamping and grinding so that I can make a pretty decent espresso now. I have found though that I don't typically have time in the morning to make an Americana for travel to work and to cleanup before I leave. So, what I do is pre-grind enough coffee for a week of French Press. I have found that my Bodum 4 cup press will fill my travel mug but I don't have time to remove grounds before I leave which distresses me because I'd like to have a clean kitchen before I leave.
    Additionally, my wife has asked me what I intend to do if we are entertaining and guests would like a cup of coffee. Frankly, I didn't really had not considered serving guests before I retired my previous machine. My initial answer to my wife was "how often over the past years have our guests requested coffee"? She didn't have an answer. However to be a bit more positive my initial thought is I would purchase a larger French Press but I haven't found a press that makes more than 4-4 oz cups. Then, I had thought of purchasing the Breville YouBrew but I really think that would be a bit much with the other two machines, although it would probably get used especially during the week to brew a travel mug.

    So, after all that, finally my question for anyone to answer. Do you think it would be a good idea to have the Breville YouBrew for making drip coffee for guest if I need more than 4 cups and for making a travel mug during the week OR do you think it would be better to get more use from the Breville Smart Grinder and find a larger French Press if I have to serve guest?
    George G on Jan 30, 2013
    Best Answer: Hi George,
    George, it is OK to want the Breville YouBrew. Personally, I think you'd love it, and get use from it every day. One thing to remember if you go with a larger french press: some people don't LIKE french press coffee. And, if you were serving, say, 8 dinner guests, that's a lot of grinding and boiling, and a really big french press to handle it all. French press coffee, to me, is just not the best way to drink coffee...just too much particulate in it, no way around it. I own a Sirena espresso machine, the Breville Smart Grinder, and have owned every other kind of one cup brewer imaginable (and have given them all away), but my daily cups (only 2) I am making with the clever Little Coffee Dripper, a kind of hybrid between french press and drip cone. However...I am seriously considering the YouBrew. I don't need it, but damn, I WANT IT! That's why I want to tell you that it's OK to want the newest, the best. And this one seems like a winner. Don't kill yourself trying to justify it...just make counter space and go for it! And please, let me know how you like it! Good Luck, George!

    Is there anyway to run the grinder to grind out old beans and any remaining grounds the chute?

    I know it can easily remove the hopper and remove the beans that way but I assume there will be some beans remaining in the grinder and potentially grounds remaining in the chute so my concern is that if I wanted to switch coffee beans to a different blend I would get some of the old beans in my first brew.
    Ross H on Jan 23, 2014
    Best Answer: It is possible to get all the beans out, it doesn't take a lot of effort but it does take some. To say the least and can be somewhat tedious to remove the few beans that would remain in there. Most blends of coffee are not just one particular bean so it may not be worth the effort to remove the few that remain. It would bother me if I were to go to the store and use a community grinder such as that, but given that is my own personal Grinder I know what's going in and out. As long as you're not using flavored types of coffee it won't make much difference in the flavor. Once you start putting the flavored beans in there that is when you have troubles. Hope this helps!!!

    Hi all you coffee fanatics (like me), I really wish that there was a way to change the grind and amount ground, I can go through a pound of beans in no time flat. in fact, almost double of my previous system. I can adjust setting for the cup option, but the carafe setting should also be adjustable. Any thoughts from experienced Breville yourbrew machine users??
    A shopper on Dec 17, 2013
    Best Answer: Though you can adjust both the strength (7 settings) and flavor (5 settings) of coffee in single cup mode on the Breville YouBrew, you can only alter the strength in carafe mode. The brew basket is not large enough to allow for both more grounds and a longer steep time without overflowing, unfortunately. More information from the Breville website is below:

    Customize your brew strength with 7 settings that increase the amount of ground coffee, as well as your flavor profile with 5 settings that vary the steeping time of the coffee and water. The integrated burr grinder then grinds your choice of beans to the optimal size just prior to brewing for maximum freshness, flavor and aroma. The unique BrewIQ System ensures the right amount of coffee is dosed with the right amount of water while heating the water to the optimum temperature; then gives you the flexibility to brew directly into your favorite cup, travel mug or the included thermal carafe for weekend entertaining.

    Adjustable strength settings - 7
    Adjustable flavor settings (only available in 'Single Cup' setting) - 5

    I thought I heard something in the video demonstration about "pre-heating." I was hoping that referred to some sort of automatic pre-heating of the thermal carafe, because manually preheating the carafe is not an option when one wants to brew coffee on the timer first thing in the morning. Am I delusional?
    Cynthia K on Aug 7, 2014
    Best Answer: No, there is not a setting that will allow for automatic preheating of the thermal carafe on the Breville YouBrew. We mention preheating the thermal carafe with hot water so that once you begin brewing you are not putting your hot coffee into a carafe with a cold metal interior. You can use very hot tap water to warm up the metal or brew with the pre-gound setting without any grounds, letting the hot water from the boiler warm the metal before brewing with coffee. Unfortunately using the timer and not preheating the thermal carafe results in some temperature loss, and brewing with the timer is best with the glass carafe models that offer a hot plate. Hope this clarifies!

    Does steam enter the bean container/grinder or do the beans stay dry, away from the steam (which is the problem with the Cuisinart)?
    A shopper on Jul 3, 2014
    Best Answer: The steam is well isolated from the beans on this Breville YouBrew, so I have not found there to be a problem with the beans staying dry.

    What do I do if I poured water in the grinder part?
    A shopper on May 27, 2014
    Best Answer: If you were to accidentally pour water into the bean hopper of your Breville YouBrew, I would recommend taking the machine into a service center for repair, unfortunately. There could be future issues with clogging beans and rust, and the unit should be looked at to determine that it's completely dry and clean on the interior. Breville can be reached for authorized service centers at 866-273-8455.

    Love this coffee maker, has anyone had any issue with LCD screen taking a long time to register the amount of water that was poured into the reservoir? Sometimes it says its a full pot, when we haven't even emptied the pot of water completely, and other times we have and it still registers 9. Has anyone had this problem?
    A shopper on Dec 16, 2013
    Best Answer: I am not sure why your Breville YouBrew machine might be having this issue, and it's not one I have heard of before. Breville may have some better information for you, and so I would suggest contacting them directly at 866-273-8455. Sorry I can't be of better assistance on this for you!

    Is there a way of knowing if the Model we are receiving has the upgraded grinder mentioned in more recent videos? Thanks! :) - Jim
    Jim J on Mar 21, 2013
    Best Answer: Breville updated the grinder in the Thermal model of the YouBrew in tandem with the release of the Glass YouBrew model. This change took place late 2012, and so if you are purchasing a machine now, it should absolutely have the updated grinder.

    Can you get a different carafe for the Breville YouBrew?
    A shopper on Aug 30, 2012
    Best Answer: Though there is not another carafe offered for the Breville YouBrew, you can actually brew into a number of containers. This coffee maker is designed to brew a few sizes of single or travel mugs, as well as into the carafe, up to the full 60 oz capacity.

    What is the brew temperature at the basket of the Breville YouBrew Coffeemaker?
    Dave M on Jul 11, 2012
    Best Answer: The Breville YouBrew gets as hot at 195 degrees from the brew basket into the cup, when measured with an instant read thermometer. The design of the unit is such that you cannot measure temperature in the basket as it brews.

    Can you use pre-ground coffee if you want to ? Also, are the carafe & other removable parts dishwasher safe ?
    A shopper on Jan 19, 2013
    Best Answer: You can use pre-ground coffee, and it works well. We've only hand washed the parts, as the heat in the dw can be hard on the plastic. Plus we have very hard water here - pays to hand dry afterwards.
    My only complaint is that the carafe is made such that it always leaves a little in the pot. It's an excellent insulator, but I'd like to be able to get all of the brew out of the carafe more easily.

    Love It!Review by JC
    We bought this machine two years ago from Seattle Coffee Gear.

    We love it!

    We wanted a drip coffee machine that grinds the beans right into the filter, avoiding the mess of electrostaticly-charged coffee grinding. But, the coolest thing about this coffee machine is how "smart" it is. Just a couple of examples: You can brew a single cup right into your mug, at whatever strength you like. Or, you can brew an entire pot (again, however you like it) into the thermal carafe. You don't have to calculate and measure the amount of water and beans. It does that for you. Oh yeah--we also wanted a machine with a thermal carafe. It's no fun drinking either cold or burned coffee. This carafe keeps the coffee warm. (Posted on 10/6/2015)
    Lot of Money for Lots of ProblemsReview by Jonesing for Morning Coffee
    One would think the priciest coffee maker on the market would actually work. Forget about quality of the brew. You're lucky to get this over-priced appliance to brew at all. I've had it for a couple of years and had problems from the get-go ranging from the de-scaling alert going off even after de-scaling and resetting, to grounds shooting all over the hot plate, to this morning's complete refusal to brew even though the display claimed it was brewing. The plastic parts easily break. And, on top of it all, the coffee -- when you can get it -- is bitter at any setting and with any beans. Total waste of money and time!

    Long term reviewReview by Zac
    I've had my YouBrew for almost three years now. In that time, I have had no trouble with it, and I use it daily. The key is to clean it thoroughly and often, and I only use filtered water. It can be a bit of a hassle, but it brews the best cup of coffee I've ever had. I set the machine up every evening, set the timer, and the rich smell in the morning is better, and more effective than my alarm clock.

    The only potential disadvantage I can see to it thus far is the cleaning. You will need to thoroughly clean the filter and its container as well as wipe the chrome shoot cover clean after every use. About once a month, you must clean the entire grinding mechanism.

    For me personally, this is totally worth it. (Posted on 1/15/2015)
    Great coffee maker, my dream come true. Review by Mike
    The youbrew coffee maker is a fantastic machine. I'm a huge fan of the single cup mode, and tend to set the flavor and strength profile to fit me. I love how it automatically determines the ratio of coffee to water, grinds the beans at time of brewing, and is easily configurable for auto scheduling the entire operation. As far as being loud, I've never taken issue, it just sounds like a grinder, and if anything it just makes me so excited in the morning, or afternoon or sadly evening too.

    Before getting this bad boy I was exclusively the guy who made my coffee with a French press daily. This machine makes it taste just like what I'm used to.

    I highly recommend this guy if you plan on coughing up the dough for a machine.

    Only time tellsReview by Mrs Java
    We have and enjoy using Breville appliances, and decided to go ahead and purchased the multiple features " You Brew Glass." The quality, design, style, heavy 12-Cup Glass Carafe, 0.5 lb Bean Hooper, taste of coffee are fantastic. The first month the Breville worked excellently, but recently we have been cleaning I grinder too often :(. We have filled the reservoir with 12 cups of water, and only 3 cups have been brewed. We were expecting for the price paid to be as a good appliance as the Breville ones we own.

    smooth cup o' coffeeReview by Beans
    What a nice machine. The look is stylish - sleek lines. Very easy to use. The adjustments to taste really work. The one-cup option is great. But the best and most important part is the consistently great cup of coffee it brews. We've tried other grind and brew machines, and this one tops them hands down. You pay for what you get. The part I really like, beyond the smooth cup of coffee, is how hot the coffee stays. Other machines don't preheat the water, and this makes a big difference.

    Some have complained that it takes too long to brew. Well, you want a good cup of coffee? Good things are worth waiting for. Besides, it's just as fast as any other grind and brew. I also don't understand the complaint that it's "loud." Not as loud as other machines of its type. Come on, people. It's a bur grinder! As in burrrr. You want fresh ground coffee? I do. Ok then deal with the temporary burrrrr. It's worth it. Otherwise, get one of those whirly gig grinders that don't grind properly and gives you crappy coffee. Ok? (Posted on 8/15/2014)
    Great JavaReview by Jerry
    We've had our you brew for 4 months now. 95% ecstatic with the results.

    How long the carafe keeps the coffee perfectly hot.
    The single mug feature and that it steeps to get a perfect mug, not just a pour over (if I wanted super quick, not as good coffee, I would continue use with my Keurig).
    The fact that you can use 6 cups out of a full water tank.
    That the grinder is way more quiet than my separate cuisineart grinder. People don't let others scare you, in the terms of grinders, this is relatively quiet...just don't keep it next to your bed.
    Easy to clean, fill, de-scale.

    Only Dislike: we have ours set for the notch below highest strong (not intense). And I find when we brew a 12c carafe, there are grounds in the carafe. They never make it into my cup though thanks to the ingenious top design. So it's not terribly disturbing.

    Completely pleased with our purchase. We compared several models and reviews for 2 weeks before making this purchase in January. I would very highly recommend this machine and Seattle Coffee Gear for their outstanding and speedy service. Be sure to check out all their you tube videos. Amazing. Thanks Seattle Coffee Gear!!!

    What We Wanted but took time to learnReview by ihucyr
    We had a k-cup for years and learning of all the waste we created, we wanted to have beans and the option of single or carafe which this machine is. You have to go thru a few iterations to determine what you like depending on type of beans so I've thrown out a few cups. It also take a bit to heat and ready itself so you need to give it 5 mins to make your single cup...not critical but could be faster. Also the beans part could also be bigger as we often have to re-load. Having said all that, we are now timing it so it make a few cups in the morning. (Posted on 4/29/2014)
    Great coffee but grinder not workingReview by Harper
    We've had a month and the machine makes an amazing carafe of coffee. I haven't tried the single cup or mug option because we drink the carafe. After a month now the bean grinder continually is stopped up. We've cleaned it and then two days later the grinder doesn't work again.. Super annoying and for the price this was there is no way this should keep happening . I will have to keep my manual grinder on hand or pre ground beans. (Posted on 4/5/2014)
    Lots of features, makes a great cup of coffeeReview by Joy
    After reviewing many coffee makers and most recently, purchased a Breville Convection oven which i really enjoy, the You Brew Coffee Maker offered all the features we wanted - grinds beans as needed, adjusts the intensity of brew, volume and type of grind. The heavy insulated stainless steel pot is a good feature since most coffee makers aren't as insulated. The bottom line is the quality of the coffee is very good and matches if not equals all of the coffee bistros in our city. As far as the complexity of features which some of the reviewers noted, if you want quality coffee, one needs to understand how to use this maker - it's worth the effort and once you know how to do it, it's a breeze. Overall, I like Breville - Italian company and european design features are typically superior to US design standards. (Posted on 3/8/2014)
    Great with only a few annoyancesReview by Angie
    We've been using the machine for about a month now, and there are many things we love, and a few things that could be improved.

    LOVE that you can choose the number of cups you want to brew in the carafe, and of course you can choose a small to very large single cup of coffee. However, when brewing single cup sizes we've found the machine is inconsistent with the amount of water it uses … the same cup setting often fills the cup to different levels.

    Strength adjustment enables you to make strong to very strong (!) coffee, which we love. Not sure it's possible to get a weak cup of coffee, however, if that's your preference (even two strength bars delivers a pretty robust cup of coffee).

    Carafe keeps the coffee very warm for a very long time. Excellent!

    Our biggest beef with this machine: Takes a very long time (about 6:30) to make a single-up of coffee due to steeping. Great cup of coffee though.

    Don't use paper filters; when we did this we got large grounds in the coffee.

    Not difficult to clean, but the outside of the disk (that controls grounds entering basket) needs to be cleaned every time you make coffee, which is kind of pain, although most machines require constant cleaning so I guess this is just something to get used to. I haven't found out if there's a way to remove the disc and clean in thoroughly.

    Not a big deal but grinder is LOUD! If you want to use the auto-ON feature but don't want to hear the grinder, you have the option of grinding your coffee separately the night before, filling the basket, and using the "pre-ground" feature. Not a bad idea. (Posted on 2/10/2014)
    Great coffee but doesn't last longReview by Dallas Gal
    Our first Breville quit heating in less than a year and the company was great about replacing it. We have had this one for a few months and now the water pump is out. We use it once each morning. That should not be "heavy lifting" for a coffee maker in this price range. I will see what the company says about this but it's a hassle to pack it up, send it back and get down the spare coffee maker for the interim while waiting for another replacement. We switched brands when the Capresso heating unit kept failing. But this isn't any better. (Posted on 11/30/2013)
    Not for the feint of heartReview by Steve
    We needed a machine with a timer and coming off a Bunn pour over we could not use just any machine.
    On the plus side. It makes a nice pot off coffee provided you max out at eight to ten cups. There is a reason that the new Bunn and other high end coffee makers heat the water first. On this machine once you brew more than eight or ten cups the water stays in contact with the beans too long and flavor is too acidic.
    On the other side the thing is a pain to keep clean.

    Great Machine, Very AutomatedReview by Troy
    This is an excellent machine. I have owned three Breville products, all have been built very well. This particular coffee maker does a good job brewing a rich full flavored coffee. The carafe is insulated well and the coffee stays hot. There are a lot of programming options as this machine will let you adjust between lighter or stronger flavor. You can adjust to brew by the cup, and make only one or two cups of coffee, or by the pot and brew a half or full pot of some other amount. This is a nice feature for someone who wants to brew a cup or two on a daily basis but needs the capacity to brew a large pot sometimes. Many coffee makers do not brew one or two cups very well. Most machines, even those with a half pot setting, just don't brew a single cup at a time very well, and the coffee is either weak or not very hot, or both. This machine does this well.

    What I don't like about it is that this machine is very automated. Its not quite as simple as pour in the beans and the water and go. You have to change the settings anytime you want to change the coffee. For example, if you have a bean that you like stronger than another, you cant so easily pour in what looks like a little extra. You would adjust the settings to grind more beans and brew longer. Eventually I got tired of this machine and went back to a Cuisinart which I need to replace because its worn out . I didn't return the Breville, I kept it, I guess its sort of an expensive back up.

    This is a great machine, but its not for everybody. Seattle Coffee Gear lets you return anything you don't like, so if you are interested give it a shot. If you have not purchased from SCG before, it is a great company. They will not hassle you about returning an item. If you call with a question you will talk to a person. If they don't have the answer they will find it and call you back, and they really will call you back. It's nice that there are still a few companies out there that care about their customers.

    The best coffee makerReview by Val

    Maybe mine was faultyReview by Ron S.
    I bought this, as I had always loved an old Capresso that I lost in a divorce.

    On the weakest setting, the grinder would overflow the gold filter with grounds if I set it above 9 cups.

    The first pot of coffee I made, I set the strength setting to about 3/4 and carafe to 12 and it literally used the full hopper of beans.

    I tried changing settings for a couple of weeks, and could never get a normal pot of coffee.

    I'll order a capresso. (Posted on 6/11/2013)
    Wish it worked better..Review by G
    I love the coffee the You Brew makes. The machine produces a full body flavor that doesn't flatten out at the end. Unfortunately, we have had two You Brew makers in the past 6 months The first one just stopped pulling water all together after 2 weeks, and the second one now has mechanical problems where the grinder disk continues to spin not allowing the machine to brew. On average it takes at least five attempts for our morning cup of coffee to brew.. Not a good way to start the morning! Pros - it yields a great cup of coffee
    Cons - The consistant mechanical difficulties are just not worth the price or the hassle.. (Posted on 6/9/2013)
    The best grind and brew coffe maker, period.Review by bucho
    I have tried a number of grind and brew and this, in my opinion, is by far, the best. The coffee basket is wide, but not deep and the pre heated water covers the grinds nicely for a full brew. I like the varied settings, but I use the highest intensity and love the strong brew. It is pretty easy to clean and reminds you to clean the grinds before it will shut off. Just a great design from the basket to the little handle built into the base for puliing forward from the back of the counter to fill the beans and water. Stop looking....this is the best one.

    A wonderful birthday surprise!Review by Emma
    I purchased this for my husbands birthday and to celebrate him finishing up his doctorate degree. He(and I both) need good coffee to make it through the next several months of dissertation writing, defending, interviewing for professor jobs, etc. This coffee maker is a perfect incentive to get the job done and to do it well!

    Fantastic dependable aromatic coffeeReview by Hudu
    My gorgeous wife has talent unparalleled when it comes to tossing something that no longer meets her needs. Such was the fate of our recently purchased Cuisinart coffeemaker. In frustration she purchased the Breville on the say so of a friend. when I saw the price I was concerned that it would produce the same results as the Cuisinart and hence be quickly added to the pile. I have not only been pleasantly surprised with the digital repeatable quality of the coffee it produces but I am also convinced that in a few months we have saved enough in coffee not wasted to pay for the machine. It is like good family now. Our Breville is a source of pride if not much deserved coffee snobbery. (Posted on 7/21/2012)
    Don't let the price scare you!Review by Happy to be Home
    We just returned to the States last summer from 3 years in Europe, where my love of coffee turned into an obsession. When I was shopping for a new coffee maker last summer I had this one in my head, but could not find it anywhere. I scoured the internet and any store I could think of for 2 months before I finally settled for a grind and brew. It was a fine machine, but not what I wanted. The whole k-cup movement was not something I was interested in. I tried that also, but I felt no control over coffee flavor and I hated the amount of waste. While I was on the phone complaining to my friend in Germany last month (March 2012) about my disappointment in coffee machines, my husband-I'm sure tired of hearing me-found the You Brew. I watched the video and ordered. My husband wan't sure about spending that much money on my third machine in 7 months, but he got over it when we started using it. We love how we can make different sizes of cups with our own personal taste in strength and boldness. I also have the Breville electric milk frother, so I have a yummy Cafe au Lait every morning! I think my husband does something different just about every morning. There are so many options. If I HAD to complain about the only wish is that it cleared the grinds after the individual cups so we didn't have to rinse the grind basket between cups every time. Still not enough for me to give it 4 stars. Cleaning over all is easy. This machine has 5 stars all over it. We are so glad to be home, and this machine completes my kitchen!

    Great Taste, Easy To Clean, A cup any time of day, Perfect cup every time, Easy To Use, Various cup sizes, Large Water Container
