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.

I have a Cuisinart that I loathe because you have to disassemble it after almost every brew to clean out the grounds stuck between the grinder and the drip basket.  Is this an issue with this model?

Answer by Maggie:

Lori, thanks for the post.  I'm honestly not sure-Cuisinart does all of their own technical support in house.  They would be your best bet for assistance-they can be reached at 1-800-726-0190.

Phillip asked:

I'm looking for a decent brew-style coffee machine as our faithful Cuisinart is now on it's last few brews after several years of daily abuse in our household. My wife and I guzzle approx. 10 cups between us by 7 am... Then if our darling eldest son decides to get out of his 3-hour 300 gallon daily shower routine, there is nothing left for him. I have spent 2 hours researching various models from $30 to $500 machines. Seems like the more expensive the machine, the more complaints as quality standards at that price range are not being met. Help!!! Please!!!! Don't make me have to run to Starbuck for our morning coffee... :-)

Answer by DanielCulver:

Phil, This might be a good time to consider an espresso machine. Gaggia Classic semi-auto would be a good place to jump in within your price range. Just thinking out loud. ;)
