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 :)"
January 10, 2012I had high hopes
"I too am a huge Breville fan.
My husband and I received this coffeemaker for Christmas, and I could not get my Mr. Coffee off the counter fast enough!
Our big gripe with this coffeemaker is the design of the carafe. It is very difficult to clean (the opening is too small to get your hand into), and it is very difficult to get all the coffee out when you are pouring it (we have to turn the coffeepot completely upside down in order to get the last 2-4oz of coffee out of it).
The other concern I have is with the grind……it is much coarser than I would have expected. I used a separate grinder with my Mr. Coffee, and I ground the coffee very fine. I was surprised to see how coarse the grounds were when I emptied the basket for the first time.
I think that the coffee tastes fine, and I have no issue with the temperature.
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!"
