November 12, 2014Almost Perfect
"The fist unit I purchased (via Amazon.com) was a bit frustrating because it had a small leak and had to exchange it. The replacement didn't have any issues, so I'm pretty happy with it. Why the review? Two suggestions, really.
First, this grinder is really loud and always seems to dump the same amount of grounds into the basket, regardless of the settings. I drink Starbucks bold when on the road, but for this the strength setting is set to mild. Maybe try to quiet the grinder and adjust the amount of bean used. I can get used to this, not a big concern for me. Besides, I work from home a lot and it's like an extra alarm clock.
The other suggestion is the size of the bean hopper is small. Really small. I'm not keeping track but I believe I can only get two pots of coffee before I have to refill it. Since most beans are sold in 12 or 16 oz. bags, it would make a lot of sense to design the hopper to hold at least a pound of beans.
If you guys ever make a bigger bean hopper, I'll buy it. It would also be just as good if you were to design an expansion tube of some sort, which simply increases the height of the side walls by 2 or 3 inches and still uses the same lid. Hmm, now that I think about it, I wish I had a plastic fab shop - I'd send you a prototype and we could make millions!
September 16, 2014A Heavy Duty Failure
"I have the Breville Smart Oven, which is the best small oven I've ever owned and we use it every day. Beautiful engineering and performance.
Based on our complete satisfaction with the Smart Oven, we bought the Breville YouBrew from Sur La Table in Austin for Christmas 2013.
The carafe was dented, but just minority dented and we decided to go ahead and use it.
The ideas, engineering and build quality was superb. What a fantastic idea to have a vacuum sealed carafe and no heating plate. Coffee stays hot without developing the acidic taste from sitting on a hot burner for a couple of hours. And the carafe will keep the coffee hot and drinkable for hours.
Now, the bad news. After less than six months of usage, the grinder, after cleaning many times, failed to deliver ground coffee to the basket. I meticulously followed all the steps in the manual to clean the burrs and the chute... to no avail. Frustrated, I called Breville and the unit was still under warranty. They shipped a new unit and a box to return the old one. Breville's customer service was very helpful and eager to resolve the issue.
After three months of use, the new unit developed exactly the same problem and no matter how clean the chute or burrs were, it just stopped delivering ground coffee to the basket. We decided to set the YouBrew to Pre-Ground and grind the coffee ourselves.
So, we are still making coffee with the YouBrew, but, the grinder does not work and we don't want to go through the hassle of ordering a replacement and then packing up the old one.
Overflows. From time to time, for no understandable reason, the basket overflows and pours coffee all over the counter and the floor. And we are very careful to grind for drip brewing, so, I am stumped as to why this occurs.
I would say that the design, albeit very heavy duty and beautiful, is badly flawed. Making a pot of coffee shouldn't be this complicated.
I hope that Breville will go back to their R&D department and redesign the unit. It would be wonderful if it worked as advertised."
September 16, 2014redefines what drip coffee should be
"Purchased the 600XL 3 months ago. Previously had a Capresso 456 that finally died. I prefer fresh ground flavor so began looking for a new coffee maker and found this model heated the water to the recommended 195-205*F (which the Capresso does not) to get the best flavor and also had the built in burr grinder. So hot that I have to let the coffee sit for a little bit before I can drink it. The thermal carafe keeps the coffee hot enough for me and if I pre-heat the carafe it stays lukewarm until the next morning. Warm enough for me to have a cup while a fresh pot is brewing which takes about 10 minutes (industry standard recommends 8-10 minutes for the water to pass through the grounds).
Let me start by saying I thought I liked strong coffee. This machine uses the industry standard for the amount of coffee it grinds, have you ever read the directions on the back of your can of coffee grounds? Usually 1 heaping tablespoon per 6 oz. cup of coffee. The machine grinds the beans for about 60 seconds no matter what strength level you choose. The way this machine adjusts the strength is the amount of water it uses to make a pot of coffee. The intense setting uses 9 cups and the amount of water increases from there to the mildest setting. I have tried every setting and the intense setting seems to be pretty close to espresso. If you normally use pre-ground coffee there is a setting for that as well and you can control the flavor with the amount of grounds you normally use. Keep in mind the temperature of the water really does make a big difference in the flavor of the coffer. I prefer a paper filter versus the gold tone metal filter that comes with the machine for a couple reasons. One, I like the flavor through paper better than metal and two, I don't like the fine coffee dust that passes through the metal filter and leaves a sediment on the bottom of the pot.
I really like the fact this machine will also do single cup from small up to travel mug size. I think the flavor is better than the full pot simply because of the steeping feature which soaks the grounds in the basket before releasing it into the cup. NOTE: the machine doesn't use the steeping feature for a full pot, however I found that letting the brewing begin without the pot in place until about 4 cups of water have brewed and then replacing the pot. Don’t forget to replace the pot (I have) it will make a big mess. This is one feature I would recommend that Breville add to the carafe setting, if they can do for a cup, why not for a pot? This machine requires some regular cleaning that is fairly easy and quick but is more than the typical drip maker because of the internal grinder. It doesn't take long and I have found it takes about 30 seconds to wipe things down, except when cleaning out the burr grinder which takes a couple minutes if you do it right.
Bottom line I highly recommend this machine, it really makes a great brew of coffee (cup or pot). I couldn't give 5 stars for the reasons given above. Ever wonder why coffee at you favorite breakfast restaurant tastes so good? It's the amount of coffee grounds and the temperature of the water. This machine will give you the great taste you have grown to enjoy from your favorite restaurant but from the convenience of your home!"
September 13, 2014good coffee maker
"I've use this machine for more than one year and I see some problems now. When I don't fill the tank to capacity, water is left in the tank after brewing and the coffee is too strong. I have t reset it and let the water continue until the tank is empty. We descale monthly and/or when it's indicated on the coffee maker. I'm not too happy with this because I don't always want to make 12 cups of coffee. I hope there is something else to be done. I will try to contact the support service on Monday. We haven't experienced any other problems and when the water tank is full, water isn't left in the tank."
July 9, 2014Short warranty on an unreliable product
"I bought the first US version of the YouBrew. Due to the grinding mechanisms, the device is rather high maintenance and involves a lot of cleaning. Despite regularly cleaning and descaling, the device has stopped sending water through the machine during brewing. It also tends to leak excess water around the pot, leaving a mess on the counter.
Upon calling Breville, I learned that I would need to pay $99 and send the device back in to be repaired or replaced with a refurbished model because I was out of warranty.
I own quite a few Breville appliances and I think this will be my last.
If you love coffee, you're probably better off spending your money on a good grinder and just doing a pour over or buying a cheaper machine to do the brewing."
May 4, 2014Excellent Coffee Machine
"Love this coffee machine! It is by far, the best coffee maker I have ever owned. This machine manages to consistently deliver cup after cup of great tasting brew.
I honestly never heard of Breville before this purchase. I accidently ran across a review of this machine in a blog after purchasing and returning 2 other coffee makers from 2 different manufacturers.
I use this pot mostly by the cup and this machine allows you to set the flavor and the strength which is a huge plus. It has multiple flavor settings from lite to bold and multiple strength settings from mild to intense and anywhere in between. It also has 9 different cup sizes to choose from and can handle my 7 1/2 inch travel mug.
This machine is environmentally friendly which is also a huge plus. It produces a bold, hot single cup of coffee without using those non-recyclable K-Cups that seem to be so prevalent today. It is also BPA free which is another plus.
I do suggest that you read the entire user manual before operating this machine for the first time. There are a lot of moving parts that one should be familiar with before operation. When I first opened the manual, I was slightly intimidated when I saw all the parts labeled. But after reading the manual once, the machine is actually a breeze to operate. It is easy to clean and the settings are very self-explanatory. I am not mechanically inclined so that was also a huge plus for me.
I normally do not spend this amount of money on a coffee machine but after my "2 pot return" fiasco, I splurged on this machine with fingers crossed and am so glad I did!! I signed up for an account with Breville just to write this review which is very rare for me. I am now one very satisfied customer and extremely happy with this purchase.
March 23, 2014To Strong
"Our problem is the amount of coffee bean it grounds and then the coffee is so strong you can hardly able to drink it.
We have tried using ground coffee and it is better but I like a fresh grind coffee verses a pre grind that is why I bought this one. We have also put different amount of beans and then the grinder keeps grinding with no beans why do that having to add new beans every day with that large container to hold the beans. the other thing we did is use a paper filter it did help with the bitters.
We did call Breville and they timed the grind time which is one minute and she said that is what is suppose to do. Well that is a half a min to long.. Very disappointed..
And such a expensive item to have something so bad I guess I will go back to Cuisinart which I was tired of and wanted something higher end..."
February 19, 2014High End Price, Low End Quality and Shipping
"My first you brew last about 40 days and then went into the dreaded "001". I assumed I had waited long enough to purchase this product where the kinks had been worked out. I was wrong. While it does make a great cup of coffee 40 days of actual functioning time is less than poor.
Support was obviously used to returning these and took mine back in the first 10 minutes of my call. I shipped the untii back the next day. The unit had worked just long enough for me to throw out the box so I had to pay Pak Mail $25 to pack it up and Breville paid the shipping.
Then I was really floored. I am already over $300 into a coffee maker that I no longer have or can use and Breville has the nerve to ship the new unit back to me via Fed Ex ground from California to the East Coast. They did not even offer to ask e to pay for expedited shipping. I am now paying more for crappy DD coffee than I would have for 3 day shipping. This over the next 10 days while I wait for the thing to arrive.
I know things break but high end companies should have more sense. My major appliances are of the high end variety and I never had to wait more than 3 days for a fix."
February 6, 2014You Brew Is A Techno Wonder!
"Breville makes awesome gear and the YouBrew is no exception. I spent over two hours tonight with one at Williams-Sonoma in Emeryville considering one before purchase and the team there let me put it through the paces. I noticed immediately that the grind was large.....almost as if it were meant for French Press. The sales associate told me that was indication it needed to be cleaned and I convinced her to let me clean the machine thouroughly. On the second run it did grind the whole bean much finer. Yes, the grinder is loud but that is what I expect from a Burr Grinder so no issue there. The programmable features are nice and the preheat feature is even nicer. I like the countdown feature as it brews.
Upon completion of the brew cycle, I poured myself a cup and it was very good and strong. Some complain that it is too strong but you can vary the strength as well. The taste of the coffee was very clean and did not leave any aftertaste in my mouth. All of the Breville peripherals are well labeled.
The reason I WILL purchase this piece of gear at Williams-Sonoma is because of their amazing return policy. I love the store and the staff is great and they offer a no question return as long as you bring a receipt.
Breville is an innovator in the food appliance biz. This is also my first Breville coffee maker purchase and is the PRECURSOR to me making a larger investment in the newer Breville ORACLE Espresso maker.
Cleaning the machine was no problem and is way less problematic versus Cuisinart coffee makers. Taking out the modular components to clean was easy and you can even use a small vacuum to clean out the bean hopper if you want to insure all coffee grounds are out.
As in all coffee makers, one should run it through a monthly cleaning cycle to insure optimum flavor and coffee purity."
November 14, 2013It's All About Taste
"I wouldn't buy a $20 coffee maker for the same reason I avoid buying coffee from convenience stores: It's all about the FLAVOR. If it tastes bad, I'm not going to drink it.
With that said the You Brew 600 is off the charts - excellent. We first used it by brewing in to the carafe. The coffee was good, tended to be strong but the settings managed the brewing to our tastes with no problem. We use Dean's Beans and Ithaca Coffee Company beans. The carafe keeps the coffee hot for a long time and the complaints about problems pouring out the last "cups" of coffee are exaggerated, what's left is about 1 tablespoon.
But if you are buying a coffee maker for flavor, live on the wild side and try using this coffee maker by the cup. Don't worry, it provides three cup sizes with three sub-settings per cup so you can brew a very large cup of coffee.
In the by-the-cup mode the YouBrew offers you a "richness" setting in addition to the "strength" setting. The "richness" setting enables a steeping time which greatly improves the character (not strength) of the coffee being brewed, and is not possible when brewing by carafe. It provides a logarithmic shift in flavor. We are now hooked on by-the-cup brewing, and enjoy coffee better than any we can buy - anywhere.
Cleaning the hopper is easy compared to our previous machine, the Cuisinart Brew Central which was a pain, and all in all the YouBrew 600 has been problem free from day one. I highly recommend it. "
