      Great Coffee Maker: sleek design and features

      We decided to replace our Cuisinart Grind and Brew coffee maker with this top-of-the-line version from Breville. I only wish I had decided to do this 2 years ago. The Breville Grind Control looks so sleek and shiny on our countertop. It is beautiful! It is easy to use, and much easier to clean than our previous Cuisinart. The Breville Grind Control has a lot of extras in it's design and attention to detail: 1) You can make a single cup of coffee, or a pot of coffee. It is kind of like having a Keurig and a regular coffee maker in one. 2) It calculates the amount of beans to use based on the amount of water in the tank (this can be changed to make a stronger cup of coffee if you so desire). 3) There is a fill gauge on the top, a red pop-up indicator in the tank, as well as an audible alert which all serve to tell you when the tank is full. Sounds like a small thing, but we sometimes overfilled the reservoir in our old coffee maker and would end up with water overflowing onto the counter. 4) The machine knows if you have not emptied or replaced the basket. There is also an escape drip valve in the basket which is supposed to help if there is a backup of water. Lastly there is a spill over tray under the pot. With our old coffee maker we sometimes would forget to put the filter in the basket, so we would wake up to coffee all over the counter and floor. The escape valve and spill over tray of the Brevillle sounds like it would help alleviate a mess caused by user error, but we hopefully never need to test this feature :-). 5) The coffee chute in the Breville which dispenses coffee from the grinder into its basket is much better thought out design than the Cuisinart Grind and Brew. There is less moisture build-up which should mean less of an issue with coffee grinds getting gunked-up inside. We've only had our Breville for a few weeks so I am sure time will tell. Overall this is an excellent coffee maker. We are very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend the Breville Grind Control coffee maker.

      Great Coffee Machine

      This coffee machine is worth every cent! I have used pre-ground and whole beans in this machine. Every pot or cup of coffee I brew tastes fantastic and not watered down or burnt. The coffee machine is very simple to use. You can brew either a whole pot of coffee (up to 12 cups) or a single cup of coffee. The coffee pot is insulated so it keeps the coffee very warm throughout the day. I have brewed many pots of coffee in the morning and by the end of the day the coffee is still warm (not piping hot, but warm). There is not a heating plate to warm the insulated pot. I really like the feature where you can brew just one cup of coffee. That is what really sold me on buying this machine. The machine is easy to clean. It is not dishwasher safe, so everything has to be hand washed. I usually just brew my coffee, then remove the housing that holds the gold filter and I wipe down the machine. The machine does come with a mini brush for cleaning the machine. The only type of water that you can use in this machine is either tap water or filtered water. You cannot used distilled water. It does take some time to brew a cup or pot of coffee since it infuses the coffee before brewing. But, it is well worth the wait. I highly recommend this machine. It is expensive, but like I had mentioned before it is well worth the price. It makes a better cup of coffee compared to the Keurig machine.

      Almost perfect

      I was looking for a all in one grind and coffee maker to replace my multiple thousand dollar Miele machine that keeps breaking down. This machine has managed to do that with only a few extra steps. The brew quality is excellent and the grinds are consistent. My only complaint is that the coffee bean housing doesn't fit a full 12oz bag of beans so you have to check the beans often. If the machine runs out of beans it will brew with the amount it has. Clean up is simple you just empty the coffee ground housing like a regular coffee maker but you have to rinse the lid off because the grinds stick to it when they are blown into there during the grinding process. Overall I would say this machine is definitely worth the money and it has replaced my expensive machine with no loss in quality.

      Great combination grinder/coffee pot. There are so many ways to customize your pot of coffee from how fine you want your grind to strength of the brew to how much you want brewed at any one time. It’s a little fancier than I’m used to but instructions are easy to figure out. Haven’t tried the single serve cup yet. Having a carafe is nice to save energy and keep your coffee warm. Only downside is that it’s a little tall and doesn’t fit underneath my top cupboards.

      Learning Curve

      There is a learning curve to this coffee machine. Finally got it figured out for when I use whole beans and ground coffee. We like STRONG coffee, so it took time to get that recipe right. It's a bit much to clean all the components day to day. With that said....I enjoy that we can make a single cup serving during the week. For single cup serving, I replace the gold tone filter w/ a paper filter for easy cleanup. On the weekends, when we have more time, I use the gold tone filter and carafe and make a big pot. Overall: 5 Stars for versatility, 3 stars for price and learning curve.

      Best Coffee Maker On The Market

      Anything that Breville produces stands for impressive build quality, and great functionality. The machine itself feels premium when it comes to closing hatches and pressing buttons. However, most importantly it brews excellent coffee. It is able to have varying grind control settings for different types of beans, which are stored in a half pound bean hopper. This machine is a little on the pricey side, but I certainly don't regret the purchase and you will see so too if you choose to buy one.

      Looks great and works exactly as expected. Makes excellent coffee and gives a great experience to your mornings. Is a little bit of more work than in a traditional coffee drop but pays you back with a consistent flavor, perfect temperature and the thermos works as promised. I have had a warm cup of coffee 5 hours after brewed!! It's worth every dollar and makes your kitchen look fancy and innovative. JC01

      I like a solid "German like" appliance.. The Breville Grind Control 12 cup just gets it right. Made with great materials and the needed features I wanted.. If you are a coffee drinker who is looking to graduate out of pre-ground coffee-hood.. This unit is an excellent step up! With a good quality bean you can really enjoy a cup of quality coffee here. Good price, value, and features.. with a nice ease of use.. I can recommend this unit (Breville) with ease..
