Product Description

Why the Breville YouBrew?

Most drip machines simply drip water over the coffee grounds to make coffee, but coffee needs to be steeped in hot water for full-bodied taste. The Breville YouBrew began with the question: how do you brew the perfect cup of coffee from a drip coffee machine?

The Breville YouBrew makes it possible for you to make your ideal cup of coffee with its unique coffee brewing system. In the single cup mode, the Breville YouBrew holds the coffee and water together for a stronger, more flavorful cup. The process is similar to how a French Press coffeemaker works, which allows the coffee and water to steep together for 4 minutes before drinking. This gives you more control over the flavor of your coffee. Simply choose your favorite bean and roast, choose your preferred strength, and choose your ideal flavor profile, and the YouBrew’s intelligent Brew IQ system does the rest. Your choice, your coffee nirvana, Breville’s YouBrew.

This is how the Breville YouBrew stands apart: it simplifies coffee-making but still makes it possible for you to customize your perfect cup.


A single-serve coffee machine that can multi-task

Single-serve coffee machines have made brewing coffee more convenient, but many of them don’t offer much flexibility in cup size, steeping time, or the amount of grounds used (especially if you’re using pre-manufactured coffee pods). The YouBrew navigates all the variables that make the perfect cup of coffee, from customizing brew strength (by adjusting the amount of coffee grounds used) and flavor (by varying the steeping time) to measuring and heating the right amount of water.

You’re also not limited to just one cup of coffee; the YouBrew can be used to brew both single-cup servings and multi-cup servings. The Breville YouBrew can brew from around 7.5 oz up to 12 cups of coffee, ensuring that you’ll never have more—or less—coffee than you need. No matter how much water or how many coffee beans you put in the machine, you can adjust the amount of coffee made since the YouBrew measures the volume of water and beans used before making each batch. No more arguments over the last cup, no more wasted coffee. You can brew into a cup, travel mug, or carafe—the YouBrew makes it easy no matter the size.

Coffee how you like it...

People who love coffee know what they love: whether it’s strong, bold, smooth, or delicate, coffee aficionados have their preferences. How can one coffee machine cater to their needs? The YouBrew allows you to adjust the strength and flavor profile of your single-cup serving. Seven different strength settings from mild to strong to intense and a choice of five different flavor profiles from light to bold give you more control over how much flavor is extracted from the grounds. Based on your preferences, the YouBrew adjusts the volume of coffee beans ground and the steeping time needed for your perfect cup. Don’t know what you like, or change your mind frequently? With the YouBrew, you can experiment with different strengths and flavors until you find the one that’s just right for you.

...Coffee when you want it

Some like it hot, some like it even hotter—and with the YouBrew thermal carafe, even coffee from the pot several hours old is still hot. Brew a pot when you get up and you can keep drinking it all morning. Not a morning person? The YouBrew can be programmed to start making coffee at a specific time, making it easy to get started in the morning. Simply program it the night before, make sure that it is full of water and coffee beans, and coffee will be waiting for you when you get up. The YouBrew’s built-in burr grinder measures out and grinds the amount of beans necessary for the size and strength that you’ve selected, so no matter when you brew it, your coffee is as fresh as possible (though it’s still an option to use pre-ground coffee, if that’s your preference). If you’re in a hurry when you’re making a carafe of coffee, the Brew Pause feature allows you to pour a cup for yourself in the middle of the brew cycle so you don’t have to wait for the whole carafe to finish. It’s coffee that’s ready to go when you are.

Designed with the consumer in mind

Save money with the YouBrew: the YouBrew was designed to deliver freshly brewed coffee with none of the added cost (or waste) of coffee pods, so it's friendly to your pocket and the environment. The YouBrew is made from attractive stainless steel, making it not only durable but beautiful. Though taller than the average coffee machine to accommodate the burr grinder, the YouBrew can brew into a variety of cups, including tall travel mugs. And even with the YouBrew’s numerous options, it is easy to use. The blue back-lit LCD display is intuitive to use, showing size, strength, and flavor preferences in addition to the amount of water left in the reservoir and the time left until brewing is complete. The YouBrew is also easy to clean, reminding you to clean the filter and notifying you when it is necessary to go through the cleaning process of descaling. Coffee has never been simpler: enter your favorite settings and a fresh cup of coffee is literally a button push away.

Your coffee, your way

Built-in burr grinder for freshly ground beans everytime
You pick the beans and roast. The YouBrew’s integrated burr grinder grinds your choice of beans just prior to brewing for maximum freshness, flavor, and aroma—or you can turn the grinder off and use pre-ground coffee.
Brew into one cup, a travel mug, or a carafe--whatever fits your needs
You pick the size. When it comes to coffee size, oftentimes it's one size fits none. The YouBrew offers you full flexibility: pick either a carafe (for entertaining) or brew directly into one cup (for one person). The Brew IQ system will intelligently choose the right amount of ground coffee and the right amount of water—at the right temperature—according to your preferences.
Change strength and flavor using the intuitive display
You pick the brew strength and flavor profile. Pick your strength, choosing from seven settings from mild to intense to vary the amount of beans ground and used. Pick your flavor, choosing from five settings from light to bold, to vary the steeping time of the coffee and water.

Customer Questions & Answers

It grinds whole beans but you can use ground coffee too.
Is anyone listening to the groans and complaints of consumers out there who are fed up with the inferior quality of products manufactured in China?

This coffee maker looks great and makes very good coffee.

Verified Purchase
I first started looking into expensive coffee makers when my wife said she wanted something more convenient. We had been using the Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder, Black, the Cuisinart CPK-17 PerfecTemp 1.7-Liter Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle and the Chemex Coffee Maker 8 Cup Classic to make our coffee. I can't say enough good about that combination of products and the quality of coffee it consistently produced, but it had its negatives, too.

We were timing up the usage of 3 different devices, it was a bit of a chemistry experiment to get the coffee/water ratio just right, there's definitely a (slightly difficult) technique when doing a pour-over method, and it required us to be standing there during the entire 15 minute-or-so process. Doesn't sound like a huge deal, but it was admittedly just too much work, especially when rushing around at 6am. We needed something to get the job done right semi-automatically and the Breville YouBrew fit the bill.

::::: SINGLE CUP :::::

The single-cup mode works great. You choose from one of many sizes, choose from 5 flavor settings and 7 strength settings (type of taste versus how much of the taste). I wish the sizes displayed the ounces instead of arbitrary "Regular" or "Extra Large". The booklet tells you how many ounces each of these settings are, but that seems like an unnecessary step.

In looking at finding a new grind and brew coffee maker, I came upon many different brands. After reading many reviews, I knew that I wanted the Breville YouBrew, but was unsure of what model to purchase. I ended up purchasing the YouBrew glass and will lay out how I made this decision over the thermal. This review will compare the decision to chose the glass over the thermal.

Pros of YouBrew Glass:
-No need to preheat carafe
-Ability to see how much coffee is left in the carafe
-Smaller footprint of the carafe
-Better looking then thermal model (Clearly Subjective)

-Can't adjust cup coffee amount in carafe mode-This was a BIG deal for me
-Heater has the potential to change the taste of the coffee over time (so i've read)

Ok so after purchasing the glass model, I was very satisfied with the level of grind, taste, ability to customize, and overall coffee brewing experience. HOWEVER, I was disappointed that I could not adjust the carafe coffee size-as many posters have mentioned. I was really really bothered by this, as I liked the idea of having a full tank of water and not needing to go through all the water in the tank when I want to brew in carafe mode. So, I head down to the local shop to look at the thermal version with the girlfriend and a few things hit us when we get there. First, after seeing it in person, we found the thermal to not be as good looking as the glass. Another factor that hit us after handling the thermal was that the reviews of people complaining of heat being lost are likely very accurate. The metal is cold to the touch as any logical person would expect. When having to chose between preheating a carafe or adding water to the coffee maker, we chose the later.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Breville YouBrew Glass Coffee Machine With Built-In Grinder is a very good coffee maker that enables you to be the master of your domain when it comes to easily and consistently making coffee just the way you like it. But being able to do so won't come cheaply. The retail/list price for this machine is $379.99, with the lowest internet price currently being $249.99.

You'll have to decide if spending that price is worth it to you in order to be in full control of your coffee. To be honest, while I like this benefit, I doubt if I would have spent $249.99 for it. Luckily, I received it for free from the Amazon Vine program.

The benefits of the BCM 550XL are many, including but not limited to:

...its Brew IQ System, which claims to automatically ensure that water is heated to the optimal temperature, then supplies, based on the settings you quickly and easily select, the correct amount for your selected brew size and strength. (More about this claim a little later in this review).

... Has an integrated burr grinder for maximum freshness, flavor & aroma.

...Provides a large, backlit LCD with brewing progress and water level indicator.

...You can choose between brewing up to 12 cups (60oz) of coffee with the glass carafe that is provided (along with its top-fill water tank with full-tank indicator) or brewing a single cup -- ranging from regular to extra large cup (7.5oz) to travel mug size.

...Choose from 7 adjustable strength settings and from 5 adjsustable flavor settings (in Single Cup setting only)

...Has a programmable clock and Auto-Start feature

...Is very easy to clean.
