Breville YouBrew Coffee Maker with Built-In Grinder, BDC600XL : The Breville YouBrew sets the platinum standard for coffee maker automation, letting you select the beans, corresponding roast, precise strength and flavor, then grinds and brews automatically. Press the start button and the Breville digital coffee maker does the rest. Integrated burr grinder ensures maximum freshness from ground beans, and automatically activates the brewing process. With the exclusive Breville Brew IQ system, this coffee maker has Intelligent Dosing, grinding the precise amount of coffee beans according to brew size and strength you select. With five settings for strength, from mild to intense, and seven settings for flavor, this coffee maker adjusts steeping time to brew mild to bold, full-flavor coffee to please the most discriminating tastes of connoisseurs. This is the first drip coffee machine that is programmable to brew coffee into a single serving cup, the 12-cup thermal carafe, or a travel mug, with the clearance to accommodate tall insulated mugs for morning commutes. With this coffee maker, you can enjoy the same great coffee taste brewing a single cup, without sacrificing flavor. Large LCD screen on the user-friendly contoured panel displays "pre-heating" to indicate water heating and "brewing" for cycle in progress. Intelligent Pre-Heat function ensures water heats to the optimal temperature, extracting full coffee bean flavor, even when brewing smaller quantities. Brew pause activates automatically when you remove the carafe, without altering strength or flavor of coffee remaining to brew. Once the brew cycle is complete, ready signal sounds and "Empty Coffee Filter" flashes as a reminder to empty grounds, particularly useful when pre-programming for automatic start. LCD screen also indicates when water reservoir is empty and time to refill. Press the on button and the soft-opening, front-access basket swings out for easy filling to use pre-ground coffee. The best coffee requires enough time in hot water to brew full-bodied taste. This Breville digital coffee maker with thermal carafe brews coffee hot and the carafe keeps beverage hot for serving. Breville provides automation at a higher level, with LCD screen indicating when it is time to descale or clean the coffee chute. Easy-fill water reservoir features pop-up button and audible alert to prevent overfilling, and the LCD screen shows water level inside the reservoir. Includes gold-tone flat-base basket and burr cleaning brush. Removable drip tray accommodates direct brewing into travel mugs. Automatic shutoff. BPA-free parts. 1,100 watts. 1/2-lb. capacity bean hopper. Water reservoir holds 60-oz. Australian-based Breville sets the standard for advanced kitchen appliance performance and durability. Breville creates the new generation of heavy-duty, professional-grade countertop appliances for the home chef, with an eye for forward-thinking innovation, modern design and advanced technology.

We read many reviews and even watched a few videos before buying the Breville YouBrew. The YouBrew is no doubt worth every penny. We purchased the stainless carafe and couldnt be happier. Needless to say unless you store your carafe in the refrigerator, it comes out plenty hot, not to mention very flavorful. YouBrew is far better than our old automatic mill and brew style coffee maker in craftsmanship, performance, and product quality...no comparison really. We first thought the bean hopper was a little small, but after using it, the size is perfect and allows for a fresher rotation of beans for the best brew every time. Imagine being able to adjust the strength and the amount of coffee you brew, from a cup size...to a travel size...to a full carafe. The money you save in drive through coffee purchases for the quality of coffee the YouBrew makes will absolutely spoil you--How can you beat that? Buy the YouBrew, pick an average quality bean, try it out, then go back and taste that overated cafe coffee you liked so much...again no comparison. The YouBrew makes even an average bean taste better.
Thank You Breville!
