The Breville BDC550XL YouBrew Glass Carafe Coffee Maker like its product cousin the Breville BDC600XL YouBrew Thermal Carafe Coffee Maker is a full featured bean-to-cup drip coffee maker that tailors the brew volume for a cup, travel mug or the included glass carafe. The distinctive difference of this model is that it has a Carafe warming plate that will automatically shut off after 2 hours.
Wrapped in a beautiful Breville stainless-steel skin it comes with a built in 1/2lb bean hopper and a burr type coffee grinder.
The intelligent brewing system enables you to capture the maximum flavor from your choice of coffee. You set the controls for the strength and flavor profile you desire. The YouBrew intelligence then takes over and measures and grinds the appropriate amount of coffee, heats the correct volume of water to a precise brewing temperature and programs the optimum steeping time.
To brew fresh-ground coffee all you need to do is fill the bean-hopper with your favorite coffee beans, fill the water reservoir with clean water, select the brew size from 7.5 oz up to 12 cups and a flavor strength setting, set you cup, travel mug or the full carafe under the spout and in moments you will be brewing the freshest drip coffee you’ve ever made. And if you want to wake up to fresh-ground brewed coffee you can set the programmable 24 hour timer to activate the BDC550XL the next morning.
You can also by-pass the grinder and use pre-ground coffee, say for a visitor that wants decaffeinated coffee. Just swing out the filter basket and add grounds to the gold-tone filter, or replace the permanent filter with a paper filter for making your pre-ground choice.

This is in praise of Whole Latte Love and the Breville coffee maker. We called Whole Latte Love to seek a high quality 12-cup coffee maker (MANY makes and models, we found, are junk). When we described our needs, the customer service representative immediately suggested this Breville model. We had honestly never heard of Breville but ordered the unit, based on the recommendation of the Whole Latte Love representative. The Breville's performance has far exceeded our expectations. We can alternate between ground or whole bean coffee to make one cup or 12. The machine appears to be well-made, and it is heavy. The coffee it brews is absolutely terrific.

Exceeds the company's specifications for brewing truly exceptional coffee.
We like to brew espresso pre-ground coffee, and the Brevelle is outstanding.
Lavazza, Trader Joe's and Starbucks, both pre-ground and whole bean (because the Breville has a built-in grinder).
Keep making this model. When you've reached this level of excellence, why change?
Cuisinart which is junk, in my opinion. And, Rancilio Silva, a superb espresso maker.
Gold cone that comes with the Breville.
We brew 10 to 11 cups each morning. The machine is easy to program to switch on at a pre-set time, grind and then brew.
