great product

Comments about Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer:

I really like the options that come with this coffee k-cup brewer. Compared to the other k-cup brewing machines, with this one you can pick from 5 options for the sizes as well as the temperature you want the water to be. It also has a timer that you can set to where it will heat up the water so you are not waiting for it to heat it up when you are ready to brew your drink. I also like the storage compartment that it has on top of the machine when switching between tea and coffee. It also comes with a scooper to scoop the right amount of loose tea or coffee, in other words you don't need a k-cup to use this machine, loose works too! The only thing I don't like about this unit is the descaling cleaning procedure that has to be done every few months, however it is not complicated to do just annoying. Overall, it is fairly easy to clean and maintain. We have had it for two years now and its still works great, and we use it everyday.

Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer - effective, but noisy

By 

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer:

The Breville Single Cup Brewer does it's job - it brews Keurig pods of coffee well. Unfortunately it is incredibly noisy. Our machine is only one year old and when it heats up the water to brew the coffee, it sounds like a jet liner taking off. It can be heard down our hall. This is particularly irritating in the wee hours of the morning. It is a sleek design, in stainless steel with blue glowing lights. It also comes with a refillable pod, so you can use standard ground coffee instead of pods, saving a small fortune over the course of the product's lifetime. Overall, it's a good product, but the noise of the heater makes it feel inferior.

Breville single cup brewer deserves A+

By 

from Longmeadow, MA

Comments about Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer:

I have the Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer on my kitchen counter and use it every single day. It's sylish, low maintenance, and so easy to use that the kids often make my morning coffee for me. This brewer offers multiple options of cup sizes, beverage temperature, auto on/auto off, and an iced beverage setting (which makes the beverage a little stronger as it will be diluted by the ice you will add.) Dozens (if not hundreds) of Keurig K-Cup varieties are available from many retailers both in stores and online. It may seem a little pricy for a coffee maker but if you search online for sales/coupon codes, you will be able to save a significant amount on it. Join the Keurig movement and get yourself this single cup brewer. You'll be glad you did!

Best Coffee Brewer I Have Ever Owned

By 

from Orange, TX

Comments about Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer:

I have used many single serving brewers.  I have never been pleased with the heat of the coffee.  This machine makes very hot coffee! I love how quite it is also.  The other machines I had sounded very loud and vibrated a lot. This has a quiet operation.  It has a large 60 oz tank with its own filter.  The K-cups are so convenient.  No measuring or cleaning! It also comes with a K-cup adapter that you can use for your own coffee if you had a type you likes or if you were wanting to save money.  It has a 5 brew size selector that is very nice.  A great looking and wonderfully functioning machine.

Breville is great

By 

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer:

This coffee maker is a quality item that makes drinking great coffee affordable.  I received one for a Christmas gift as did my mother in law this year.  The assembly was very easy and the directions were straight-forward; it only took me about 10 minutes from start to finish including priming the filter for use.  It is very solidly constructed and the menus are intuitive.  Unlike other brands of single-serve coffee makers that require expensive K-cups for brewing, this one provides a single-cup filter that allows you to use your own coffee grinds as well.   There are many different varieties of the cups including teas, hot chocolate, and apple ciders if you are interested in purchasing the K Cups.  I have had no problems with the coffee maker, but my mother in law's stopped puncturing the cups.  She called Breville and they agreed to ship her a replacement right away without any cost or hassle.  All in all, I would recommend this to anyone and have already done so!

Amazing Coffee With Every Cup!

By 

from Novi, MI

Comments about Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer:

The Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer is an amazing coffee machine!  The only thing I have a complaint about is that the machine itself is very expensive.  The cost in the long run is well worth it in my opinion.  I used to buy coffee at a local coffee shop every morning, and with this machine it saves me money there so that's how I justified buying it.  The Breville brewer makes individual cups of coffee and it tastes like a fresh pot every time.  I love that you can do coffee (and there are a TON of different brands and options to choose from) and also tea and hot chocolate.  It's great that my husband and I can each make the kind of coffee we want instead of choosing only one pot to share.  I love buying a different brand of coffee all the time to try new ones.  I also love that the machine is a sleek design in stainless steel so it matches all of my other appliances.  Looks great in my kitchen.  Another great thing is that it is super easy to clean.  No hassle there!  One of my favorite features is that it has a timer on it so I can set it to turn on in the morning and it's ready to brew my coffee as soon as I'm ready for some Joe.  This stylish, yummy, coffee maker is expensive, but awesome!  I would highly recommend!

I love the convenience of the one cup coffee maker

By 

from Hopewell Junction, NY

Comments about Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer:

I am a busy mom of four children ages 5, 3, 1, and 3 months old.  I love to have a good cup of coffee but can never find the time to brew a pot of coffee.  When I on rare occasions find the time to do so it often gets cold before I have the time to sit with a cup of coffee.  There ends up being a lot of waste.  My husband likes to bring coffee to work but never gets to making a pot of coffee so he ends up buying his coffee.  I have tried setting the timer and getting it ready the night before but with the four children I cannot possibly add another thing to my to do list before bed.  Because of the hurdles mentioned above we bought this single serve coffee maker.  It was more expensive than your typical one serve because we wanted the ice coffee feature and the temperature control.  It was well worth the money.  The k-cups are a bit expensive ranging between 40 - 50 cents per cup but the pros outweigh that one con.  My husband and I use it everyday we make coffee, tea and hot chocolate.  It is great when we have guests so that they can help themselves to a hot beverage whenever they would like.  It is simple to use, simple to clean, and makes a great cup of coffee everytime.  We did however have to send ours back to the company because the portion sizes were inconsistent.  The company was helpful, professional and quick to send a paid Federal Express label.  We are now eagerly awaiting them to fix it or send us a new one.

Thoroughly enjoyable experience to make one cup of coffee.

By 

from Royse City, TX

Comments about Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer:

I am a one-cup coffee drinker and have been for most of my life.  When in the process of trying coffee makers, I have had the experience of trying the Breville brand of coffee maker which makes one cup of coffee, which is very ingenious.  Normal coffee makers are messy and you have to mess with glass carafes.  The Breville one-cup coffee maker makes a great cup of coffee single-handedly and even warms the cup up for you.  I enjoyed this more than anything because you don't have to mess with buying coffee in a can.  You purchase your coffee already measured out in a single small cups which is placed in an open door which then pricks the single container automatically to brew your coffee.  You can buy all kinds of flavors of coffee and you don't have to waste any left-over coffee that you didn't drink.  The one-cup systems seems to work great for me since I'm told that I'm just a wanna-be coffee drinker.  You can buy it in different colors and even in different brands.
