Breville Coffee Maker 2020 Buyer’s Guide

Breville Coffee Maker Buyer's Guide 2020

The Breville Coffee Maker line is one of the top sellers in their price class. Breville is a major player in the coffee maker business and for good reason. They make a number of really good machines. Breville’s strength is in drip brewing technology and small appliance design. So, each Breville coffee maker brews good coffee, consistently overy a wide range of bean types and roasts.

Breville is a good company with solid design, manufacturing and support. We have covered Breville espresso machines quite a bit. We also did a Breville vs DeLonghi 2020 Buyer’s Guide to compare the two company’s espresso machines. While we have sometimes recommended other high end super automatic espresso machines over the Breville models, their coffee makers are excellent.

Breville Precision Brewer Coffee Makers

The Breville Precision Brewers coffee maker comes in two varieties. Model number BDC450 comes with a Thermal Carafe. The BDC400 is the Precision with the glass carafe.

Aside from that the two Breville Precisions models share most of things that make them both great coffee makers. They also have some of the same brewing technology that Breville puts in their espresso machines. This includes the PID temperature control. You can also control the duration of the brewing which you should adjust based on your coffee beans.

Breville’s “Steep and Release” feature, allows you to customize to preference and adjust to different types of coffee. They also claim that their Thermo Coil Heating System has a water purity benefit over aluminium systems. But, we cannot validate that.

There are a few design quirks and the beans do sometimes get jammed.

Breville Milk Cafe

If you want the most perfect hot cocoa and milk-based coffee drinks then consider a Breville Milk Cafe. To be clear, this is not a coffee maker but is a great addition to your coffee routine. The Milk Cafe just warms milk and somehow doing one simple thing perfectly is good enough for us.

4.4 out of 5 Stars

Milk is hard to warm quickly. It is messy, sticky and burns easily. So it does require precision handling and this gives it.

Just pour in milk, add anything else you like (cocoa!!!) and set the control and you will get perfect milk based drinks. READ MORE

Breville Coffee Maker

Every Breville Coffee Maker is well designed with a good warranty. The Precision models are the more popular choices and a thermal carafe really comes in handy. But the Breville Grind Control brews the best coffee because it has so much more programmability. If you want to look at some other options, check out our Mr. Coffee Thermal Coffee Maker Guide.

We recommend both the Breville thermal carafe and Breville precision. While it is true that every model of Breville coffee maker has good design and good drip brewing capabilities, the Breville models vary widely on other criteria.
