Product Review: Breville Gourmet Single Cup Coffee Maker
I have nothing bad to say about this machine, I love it!
1.) It has 5 cup sizes, the largest works perfectly for both my travel mug and my large Longaberger coffee mugs.
2.) It has an adjustable thermostat, I like my coffee piping hot!
3.) It has a refillable filter so I can use my own coffee & don't have to purchase the K-cups. I keep a selection of K-cups on hand for company - they love getting to select their coffee flavor.
4.) It brews my cup of coffee in under a minute and is relatively quite in doing it.
5.) My morning cup of joe tastes the same every single morning. This doesn't happen with other coffee brewers.
6.) I love that I can easily brew a cup when I want it, no stale burnt coffee in the pot & I can brew myself a cup of coffee anytime of the day without feeling that I have to drink an entire pot of coffee (or half pot, you get the picture).
7.) More cost efficient than brewing a pot of coffee, you only brew the cup(s) you want - no waste!
8.) Quick, easy clean up.
9.) Looks sharp on my counter top.
I give the Breville Single Cup Coffee Maker 2 big thumbs up!
After owning this unit for some time now I'm changing my review. While the brewer is great in the beginning, I've had to replace the unit at home (only worked for 1 year) and my unit at work just stopped working too. I love being able to brew one cup at a time as it keeps me from drinking as much coffee but the Breville didn't last any longer than the Keurig brand brewers and costs twice as much.
I'd had my old pot style brewer for over 10 years when I decided to switch to the single-cup brewers and never had any trouble with it working. I don't understand why the single-cup brewers only seem to work for a limited amount of time and then stop brewing proper size cups of coffee (it's like they wake up one day and forget what 12 oz is). I'll probably end up going back to an 'old fashioned', plain ole coffee pot if the current one messes up. The machine itself costs way too much to keep replacing.
