March 9, 2012The Best I have found.
"The biggest problem with coffee makers is that very few reach proper brewing temperature. This one achieves that.
I was skeptical about the "steep" feature. Usually coffee steeped in water for a period of time causes bitterness. This is not he case here. Apparently proper brewing temperature is the factor that most affects a smooth (even when strong) cup of coffee.
This unit is very easy to use and clean. You must read the manual because there are some settings that are uncommon to many of us. Once you understand WHAT these settings do the My Brew is a breeze to operate. Don't let all the settings scare you.
This unit combines proper grind for drip, proper brewing temperature into a beautiful user friendly design. Now that it is set up all I do is push one or two buttions and the My Brew gives me the proper amount of coffee and measures the proper amount of water to brew it.
Another great feature; It will NOT try to run with an empty water tank as running the heating element dry can eventually damage it.
There are several alerts to remind me of what i may have forgotten in setup.
This machine does all I need and more.
Maybe one morning it will hand me a cup while i am stil in bed? hahaha
February 23, 2012You Brew
"Ok, I have had the You Brew for just under a week. I switched from a Keurig because I could not get the right amount of flavor to the size of the cup to my choosing, use a small cup- coffee came out bitter and way too strong. I choose a large cup or travel mug and coffee would be weak or watered down and or the amount of water would not be the same despite having the same water selection......
So, I reasearched this coffee maker, I enjoyed the settings, all of them. I can choose 9 different sizes for whatever cup I choose. I can also adjust the strength (regulates amount of beans per cup), and I can also adjust the boldness by regulating the amount of time the water sits in the grounds (steep time). This setting, to me was extremely important because I don't want to add beans to the coffee just to get the boldness I prefer. Ok, I have hit all the "likes", and here are the misses... If you thought your alarm clock was loud, you'll go through the roof when you hear the grinder. I think that a little more engineering and this problem would go away. Maybe some soft gel feet or soft mounts for the grinder.... The other miss would be related to different brands of coffee. If there was 3 to 4 different profiles that could be programmed as well as the settings you found "perfect" for that brand would frce me to rate this with all five stars. "
February 8, 2012Taste is an Individual Trait
"Several months ago our toaster / convection oven quit…in the search for a replacement I ran across the Breville line of products. I was very impressed with what I read concerning the attributes of the different items along with the reviews. I am an Engineer working in technology development (R&D) for a large consumer products company, so I do know a little bit about design. That being said after purchasing the Smart Oven I wasn’t disappointed with the choice…fantastic product and that led to the research for a new coffee maker.
I wanted something with a Carafe and naturally I went back to the Breville web site and found the “You Brew”. After reading the product highlights and reviews I continued searching the web and reading articles concerning coffee makers and ratings…long story short I bought the “You Brew” and found it to be as excellent product as the “Smart Oven”. In reading the reviews I was a little concerned about the temperature issue. So I had to check and after running a pot of water through the machine into the carafe and then measuring the temperature I found it to be almost 200 degrees F. That was hot enough for me, couldn’t imagine wanting it hotter. I then made a pot of pre-ground coffee and also found that the flavor was much better than our last coffee maker…in checking the filter area I found that the hot water dispersion over the grounds was very even. I could go on about the other subtle attributes regarding this product but I am sure by now you’re getting sleepy. This product is in a category that is rated by individual taste regarding flavor…and that’s impossible to design a product that everyone will be happy with. I for one think it’s well executed.
February 1, 2012Not hot
"After the coffee maker I had for 10 years died I was so excited to be replace it with something new! William Sonoma highly recommended the YouBrew and after my purchase I was anxious to get it set up because it was such a cool machine!
I have had it for a little over a month and although it is easy to use I agree with some comments made by others: 1. The carafe is an awkward size and for some reason it is difficult to pour that last cup of coffee out without having to turn the entire carafe completely upside down over the sink; 2. As much as I want to like this machine, it does not maintain the coffee at a hot temperature like other carafes I have owned. After as little as a half an hour If I pour a cup of coffee, I then have to heat it in the microwave. For $280 bucks I would have expected alot better. I will keep this machine but I do hope that Breville can take these comments and make some improvements the next time around."
January 30, 2012Best Coffee We've Had
"We've had our YouBrew for about a month and simply love it! The first time we used it, the coffee was quite strong - so we toned it down a notch. I agree with others that the coffee is HOT - and stays hot for long enough to finish the pot!
I have trouble understanding comments that the coffee is weak or not very hot! You can make this coffee as strong as you'd like and it comes out plenty hot. I'd say they're doing something wrong!
Every weekend, we go to a restaurant because it has the most flavorful and strong coffee that we love. We've tried for a long time to duplicate it. We had a Cuisinart and not only did it not make very strong or particularly flavorful coffee, it sometimes backed up somehow and would overflow all over the place...making a huge mess. I searched for a new coffeemaker/grinder combination - without much success. Then we heard about the "burr grinder" and I searched again. When I heard about the Breville, I was hopeful this would be the answer! And it is! We're thrilled with this coffee maker!
Yes it's a bit bulky/large, but it works beautifully! We had to pull out our previous coffee maker to make coffee, too...so no big deal.
This is the best coffee we've ever had! I'd recommend it to everyone!
January 30, 2012Great machine- a lot to love.
"First, I'd like to address some criticisms of the YouBrew. Some have said it doesn't brew bold enough... I love deep, bold coffee, and can't imagine anything bolder than what comes out of this machine at its most intense settings. On par with a cup of coffee at a Starbucks store.
I don't find the carafe hard to clean, but that's because I use a sponge on the end of a handle filled with dishwashing soap.
My unit grinds the beans slightly coarser than I would, but the coffee tastes perfect to me, so I don't worry about that at all. However, I do realize that a grind adjustment might make more people happy.
People comparing the brewing time to a Keurig machine have no idea about what differentiates these machines. Do a little research. The YouBrew actually takes the time necessary to BREW a single cup while a K-cup is just glorified instant coffee, and tastes like it to me.
The unit itself is very easy to keep clean, thanks to the non-stick surfaces of the plastic. A simple rinse is all that's needed between uses most times.
I don't usually review products, but I can't believe all the negative comments I see online about the YouBrew. I really do question the authenticity of some of the reviews, especially on other retailers' websites.
January 28, 2012Great Machine!!
"After 1.5 months of everyday use I am very pleased with the performance and taste.
I have seen people say it taste too weak . I have tried at least half a dozen different brands and types of beans ranging from medium, to espresso, to dark. I have not had any that tasted weak and in fact the last batch of Starbucks Dark I had to dial the flavor down in carafe mode. My wife could smell how strong it was from the other room. Even my stepson thinks the taste has greatly improved over my old model.
Now as for heat. If you warm up your mug or carafe there is not a issue with it at all. I just pop my mug with some water in it in the microwave for a minute. Doing the same for the carafe works just fine as well. Many hours later and the coffee inside is still pretty hot. I personally boil water and pour that into the carafe and let it sit a minute or two but we just got a induction stove that boils water in 90 seconds so that is probably asking a little much for most people."
January 24, 2012Disagree with other posts
"I am reposting based on any comment that this coffee maker does not make coffee hot enough.
Here are the facts... The coffee comes out so hot that it is steaming hot. You really need to let it cool a bit before drinking if you do not want to get a tongue scald. My wife made a pot this morning at 6:30 am. She had a cup and we both had travel mugs to take to work. I just got home from work at 6:30 pm and I am enjoying a cup from the same carafe that has sat in the unit all day and did not have to heat the coffee and it was hot enough to dissolve the coffeemate I used as creamer.
How hot do you guys want your coffee?
We have now had the pot for over three weeks and it is just awesome."
January 16, 2012brew time
"True, it's impossible to get your hand inside to clean. A Keurig takes 60 seconds to brew a cup of coffee. The Youbrew takes (depending upon flavor strength) 6 to 7 minutes to brew a single cup. 6 to 7 minutes....are you kidding me!"
January 15, 2012Great Coffee
"I purchased this a few weeks ago to replace my Keurig that crapped out on me. I was looking for 2 things in a coffee maker...dependability and 1 cup brewing option. I'm confident I found both of these in this machine. I'm a single mom, so I need something that brews just a cup to prevent wasting. The machine is big, but I was able to find it a home on my countertop where I don't have cabinets above. It did fit under my cabinets, but I didn't want to have to move it out to fill with water and beans. I probably won't use the carafe, so no complaints on that, but I have used it to fill the brewing system with water and I didn't find it difficult or a big deal that you can't get all the water out. Since coming out of a Keurig where the k-cups can run about 15 a box for 24 (drinking 2 a day means a box would last me not quite 2 weeks), I don't feel this is wasting beans at all. A bag of good quality coffee is about the same price and is lasting me much longer. I see how much the machine is using by the amount of grounds I have to dump out (which isn't much). I haven't had the pleasure of cleaning the entire machine yet (manufacturer suggests cleaning once every 2-3 weeks which isn't bad), but I do find that cleaning the basket and wiping down the interior isn't a huge deal...takes less than 5 minutes. I don't mind taking care of things in order to keep them working. Overall, I think I'll have a good time with this machine. It's quite the looker :)"
