Rated 1 out of 5 by frankholliday from what happened? I got this as a wedding present in Nov. It worked great and I loved it. Then it started slowing down and taking forever to brew a pot of coffee. like one hour or more. tHEN DESCALEDlight came on. Descaled twice.Now just as slow but flashes machine too hot to brew. So sad about this ,not sure what to do?Date published: 2018-05-21Rated 5 out of 5 by Niko from Consistent, reliable, and customizable! I have had this brewer for over a month and not a day goes by that I am not absolutely blown away every time that I use it. As a coffee roaster, the ability to use the general "Strong" carafe setting as well as to being able brew individual cups and choosing how each cup is bloomed, I am over the moon with how fantastic a simple set-and-forget brewer allows me to test each of my coffees to ensure top quality with different ways to brew. The carafe itself keeps coffee hot for hours and the clean up makes the Breville Precision Brewer Thermal an absolute winner. Assembly is simple and with something so advanced to have only a single button is something I think that everyone can appreciate.Date published: 2018-04-29Rated 5 out of 5 by coffeeaficionado from Upping my Coffee Game I'm always on the quest for that perfect cup of coffee and this machine exceeded my expectations. Seriously, one of the smoothest cup of coffee I've brewed at home. It's a powerful machine that is easy to use and looks great in the kitchen. While I've only used the automatic presets, this coffee machine has plenty of customized/advanced options for the true coffee snob. I can confirm that there is a little bit of residual water that gets left in the water tank, but I don't mind dumping it out. Also, the carafe which keeps the coffee really warm without burning it. I'm looking forward to using the "over ice" and "cold brew" feature this summer.Date published: 2018-04-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Janetlee from Makes the very best home brewed coffee! Don’t believe the negative reviews! This coffee maker makes great coffee. We have have two-one in our main house and one in our second home. Very rich tasting, never a burned flavor. Truly a wonderful drip coffee maker with a great spray over the grounds. We use with a brown large size paper filter which you can find on Amazon. Try it - so much better than any others on the market!Date published: 2018-04-08Rated 5 out of 5 by EeeJ from Consistent with lots of features! I've used this brewer almost daily since i received it 6 months ago and I love it. It allows for multiple brewing options to fit almost any taste. You can use the included metal filter if you prefer heavy-bodied coffee similar to a french press. You can use the paper cone filters for standard drip coffee. It has a cold-brew feature for lower acidity coffee. It also has a pour-over adapter if you want to use a device you already have such as a V60 or Kalita Dripper. I've been making 20oz. V60 brews that are more consistent than i can make by hand with a gooseneck kettle. *Nerdy features that I really like* - It has PID temperature control. This means you can actually change your brew temperature if you like to experiment with that sort of thing. - It has a water pump that delivers the water rather than just being heat and gravity fed like all the other brewers in this tier. This gives you consistent water flow to your coffee. - You can adjust the bloom time. - There is an "SCA Gold Cup" brew option for ideal time and temperature. *Concerns from other reviewers* - Yes, there is a small amount of water that remains in the reservoir, but it doesn't bother me and I think it has no effect on the brewed coffee at all. It's easily removed with a paper towel if it's an issue for you. - I have only had to descale my machine once in the last 6 months and i used the Urnex brand liquid descaler and it worked great.Date published: 2018-04-02Rated 4 out of 5 by Not a trained professiona from I love the taste quality of the coffee made. Makes great coffee. Easy to use if you read instructions and watch the video. I have used the pout over option when I want a quick 1 cup, or flavored coffee. I don’t need to buy another machine for a Long Time.Date published: 2018-03-25Rated 3 out of 5 by Brent from Makes great coffee, but... It makes great coffee, but has a few serious hangups. 1) The auto-start feature doesn't work. We have tried over and over, but it always just blows past the set time without starting coffee. 2) The "descale" message doesn't go away once it shows up, even after descaling. 3) There is no way to adjust your water hardness without fully resetting the system and losing your current settings. 4) This is the noisiest coffee maker I have ever owned by far. 5) BrevilleUSA doesn't even sell this device and so it isn't listed on their support site.Date published: 2018-03-16Rated 4 out of 5 by Shenandoah girl from So far, so good I have been using this for about two weeks, it met all of the criteria on my wish list and then some, and I have been looking for this type of brewer for a long time. Thermal carafe seems to keep the coffee hot enough for me, carafe pours well and is smartly designed, auto start is easy to set, brew is about the same as my prior machines, although there are a lot of options I have not yet tried, and can make 12 cups when needed with a basket filter instead of a cone, you can change them out. Have not tried pour over or cold brew yet. A little dripping on the tray at times when taking the carafe out, but not excessive. I see a little water remaining in the outlet of the reservoir, but not a lot. Watching for dreaded error message, and hope that Breville stands by this machine. Definitely tall, so if you have limited height in the location you plan to put it, you might want to be aware of that, and a bit expensive. If using the basket for a full pot it takes commercial size "bunn" style filters, which you can order in various types online (bleached, unbleached, etc.).Date published: 2018-02-14
