January 8, 2012Disappointing
"I own three other Breville products and I'm a huge fan. That being said, the Youbrew was a huge disappointment. The coffee flavor itself is fair at best. Like previous reviews, the coffee brews at what best can be described as warm. I have a Cuisinart and a Mr Coffee machine. Both brew coffee at 175 degrees. The Breville...155 degrees. Nobody ever had a good cup of coffee or burn themselves with coffee that brewed at 155 degrees.
The manual will tell you to warm your cup or carafe. Again, I have used coffeemakers that cost a third of what the Youbrew cost and have never had to warm up a cup or carafe to heat coffee that was just brewed. Why should it be necessary to do this for the Breville that costs $280? The grinder is not adjustbale either. This is a feature that is again available in coffeemakers at a fraction of the cost. Whether it was a carafe or a single cup, the grind was too fine. I was alway left with coffee residue in the bottom of the cup. Luke warm coffee with sludge at the bottom is not what I would expect from Breville. I've had better tasting, hotter cups of coffee from hotel in-room coffeemakers than this machine. I took mine back the very next day."
January 4, 2012Would purchase again
"I have waited and waited for a grind and brew (other than Cusinart) to hit the market. There is one other brand that I am aware of but it has mixed reviews. I was thrilled to see available. I have had this unit about 2 weeks and make one pot in the morning and a single cup in the afternoon. First understand that I am not a coffee snob; but I love coffee.
*The machine is big and fits (barely) right under my cabinets. The other reviewers were correct; you do have to pull it out to add water and beans. But boy is it gorgeous! I love filling the bean grinder and water reserve only every couple of days and then only using the amount for that pot. (It holds up to 12 cups of water and a little under 1 lb of beans, I think.
* It is loud but not as loud as the old grind and brew from Cusinart.
* The machine makes great coffee! I have tried all different beans and even my old Folgers, still did good. It really does take out the bitterness that I had in my old Grind and Brew. I did side by side comparisons. I would like to adjust the taste for the pre-ground cycle but it is not available. I do put in the hot water in the carafe for 30 seconds while I am cleaning the basket. I think it really helps and the coffee is a great temp. Some reviewers have commented on cleaning the machine. I have no problems with it especially since I was a previous Grind and Brew user and THAT one was a royal pain.
* I love the size capacity(s) allowing for a single cup and the pot. Warning, one of my taller travel mugs doesn't fit easily underneath. I have to open the basket, take out the middle liquid catcher, and then shut the basket. The shorter mugs were fine, though.
* I have only 2 complaints: The carafe is sort of a weird shape that doesn't allow you to easily drain the last bit of coffee. I actually have had to take the lid off to empty because it retains about 1/2 cup under the lip. The other complaint is not being able to adjust the pre-ground flavor to my liking.
Overall, I would rate this machine a 4.5; and the complaints I registered are only to set your expectations. I would still re-purchase and would recommend it to you!"
January 1, 2012Wonderful Coffee Maker
"I have to take exception with any negative comments previously submitted. This coffee maker makes a very hot cup of coffee. This coffee maker does not make weak coffee (even at the lowest setting for grinding coffee). This coffee maker can make coffee as strong as you would ever want it. This coffee maker is very easy to use. So, in summary, the coffee maker looks greats, works great, makes great coffee and is easy to use. I have to question any of the negative comments posted."
December 31, 2011Disappointed
"I have used many other Breville products that I really like. And while a bit pricey, I was excited to give this a go.
I give this coffee maker an "A" on the bells and whistles (ie..single cup brewing), but have to give it an "F" on the actual brewing and taste of coffee, unless you really like weak to medium watery tasting coffee.
As previous reviewers stated, you can not adjust the grind, which is very coarse. Breville's attempt at "Intense" or "Bold" flavor is to brew or steep the coarse grind coffee longer. Should you grind your own beans, with a finer grind, then you can get a better cup, but then what's the purpose of the integrated grinder.
Disappointed. Time to break out the old grinder and maker..... "
December 28, 2011loved this coffee machine
"great coffee maker easy to use and easy to clean and the coffee taste to way suppost to coffee taste . so if you like a good cup a coffee thats the machine you shoud buy . thanks Breville for the best coffee maker yet ....."
December 28, 2011Terrific Brewing System
"Very well made product. Easy to operate, with flexible features for brewing a cup (various sizes) to a full pot (12 cups). Various settings for coffee strength, and the burr grinder does a very nice job. It's great to have a cup of coffee from fresh ground beans.
I saw a few reviews that complained about the grinder. I did not feel the grind was too course. The setting for Strong and Intense brewed a pretty strong pot of coffee. Overall, a very nice brewing system. Have had it since Christmas, and already used it 6 or 7 times. Very easy to clean up.
Definitely worth the money, in my opinion!"
December 23, 2011Great build quality, not so great coffee...
"I have been looking for a coffee pot for two years now to replace my old Bunn... I went to a local high-end national chain who was kind enough to do a full demo of this product in their kitchen...
1. Build quality: Beautiful as all Breville products. They know how to make a product that isn't what I call a consumer toy.
2. Very black boxy... you set the strength and amount of coffee and it does its thing. One can't vary the grind size nor the grind volume manually... this is a shame.
3. Grind is too coarse and cant' be adjusted ... Really, Seriously, Wow!
4. Coffee... average to good tasting, not amazing or anything due to coarse grind and improper brewing temperature.
5. Temperature... - A very lawyer and insurance company pleasing 155 degrees F. Not the correct temperature for brewing a truely great cup of coffee.. My search continues.
So... plueeze.. can Breville build a simple (user controlable), high-quality (one that uses the proper brew termperature), coffee maker with a thermal crafe that a coffee snob would buy??? This maker is just trying to do too much. Breville, please focus on a coffee maker that is simple and just makes great coffee...we don't need all the bells and whitles (grinder and digital controls) included with this one...ok, mabe a timer, but that's about it."
December 21, 2011I want to love it but it's not easy
"This is a product I so want to love. It looks great, has great features, and can perform marvelously at times. However, the grind is way too course. Unlike some other grind and brew machines, there is no way to adjust the grind size. This is a major design mistake. If you compare the output of the Breville burr grinder to preground coffee you will find the Breville grind very course. This shows up in the taste of the brewed coffee. It is weak even at the strongest setting. If you use preground coffee then you get a very good brew.
The carafe is the metal thermal carafe you see on many thermal coffee machines. A glass lined thermal carafe would be better. If you don't preheat the carafe with hot water then it removes a lot of heat from the coffee when the coffee is first brewed. This means using the timer will result in coffee that is cooler than desired since you can't preheat the carafe ahead of time.
The unit looks great. The metalization appears a bit thin and the exterior is a fingerprint magnet.
I love the ability to fill the water resivoir and select the number of cups independently.
Cleaning when grinding beans is a bit of a pain but I suspect easier than competing machines. A lot of thought went into the design. Just remember that grounds are being blown into the basket. With preground coffee you just dumpo the paper filter. If you grind your own, you have to wash the entire basket, clean a metal rotating plate and a catch tray. My impression though is that this comes with the territory.
If I could shim the grinder so it made a finer grind I would definitely keep the unit. After about two months, however, I still get annoyed with the course grind and the resulting weak coffee. Gosh it looks great in my kitchen. But, it is expensive and frustrating.
November 22, 2011Disappointed :(
"I was super excited to get this machine. I did as much research as I could before purchasing. I purchased yesterday at Williams Sonoma and used it for the first time this morning. I filled it with a very high quality dark roast and brewed a single cup under the most intense bold setting. I have to say I was very disappointed. I REALLY was hoping this machine would be the perfect coffee maker for me. It's not. IF YOU LIKE BOLD STRONG COFFEE, THIS MACHINE IS NOT FOR YOU. Was my coffee bad? No. Was it great? No. The coffee brewed in my Cuisinart is better.
I think the biggest problem with this machine is that you cannot adjust the coarseness of the grind. It looks way too coarse for a drip machine. I really wish I could adjust the grind. I think this would fix the problem. I thought the temperature was really great, though. I also ground my own coffee and brewed another cup. This one was much better but was not worth the $300 price tag. Hopefully the next model they release will address the burr grinder problem. You really should be able to adjust the grind."
November 17, 2011Overall very happy.
"I have had the YouBrew for almost 3 weeks and I am really liking it.
All the features they tout are great. I wanted to provide you with some things I don't like and things you might want to know before purchasing.
-This machine is huge. It takes up a lot of counter space and is very tall. So much so that I have to pull it out to add beans or water.
-The individual cup sizes are approximate (as explained in the manual). You will have to try a few sizes to see what works for you, ecspeciially if you want to add cream and sugar. I didn't like that I have to research what approximate ounces go with what cup size.
-Heat loss is a major issue with this...the manual recommends you prewarm the basket and cup. I wish the coffee came out much hotter then it does..but I always order things from coffee houses extra hot.
-You are going to wait for your single cup. 6 minutes for the way I like it. And the last minute is a waste so I just cancel it. Also you have to clean out the basket after each cup...so instead of using their reusable basket, I recommend using disposable paper filters...saves a lot of time if you are making different cups of coffee at different strengths\steep times.
Regardless of the things mentioned above, I am glad I purchased this and happy with how customizable my cup of coffee is."
