Breville Precision Brewer BDC400BSS With Glass Carafe
There's more than one way to make better coffee with the Breville Precision Brewer. Designed from the outset as a prosumer coffee maker, the Precision Brewer features multiple brewing modes, basket sizes, and methods—and now in a glass carafe and hot plate design. The heart of the brewer lies with its programming options, which enable controls over flow rate, temperature, bloom, and brew time to make everything from individual cups to cold brew. With options for multiple filter types, brew profiles (like fast brew or over ice), and an SCA-certified Gold Cup mode, the Precision Brewer offers unbeatable automated brewing for your kitchen.
- Gold Cup Setting - SCA-certified Gold Cup brewers must brew between 198? and 204?, and complete brewing in under 8 minutes.
- Auto-On - You can program the Precision Brewer to run automatically in a pinch.
- Large Capacity - A 60-ounce max capacity means enough coffee for a crowd.
- Filter Options - The Precision Brewer works with both flat-bottom and melitta #4 filters—and even includes a reusable basket filter.
- Single Cups - Select the single cup setting for speed! Fits a travel mug up to 8 inches tall.
- Setting-Rich - Program everything from bloom to flow rate and temperature.
- Other Methods, Too - The Precision Brewer also supports cold brew and pour over modes too.
- Glass Carafe - This is the glass carafe version. Click here for the stainless carafe version.
- Excellent Coffee - The calibrated Gold Cup setting does an excellent job of making coffee, enough that we rarely need to play with the My Brew mode.
- Options - Still, the customizability of each brew option gives you an unprecedented landscape to play with—-flow rate, temperature, basket type—and all of it is automated.
- Glass Carafe - Even if you aren't one of the few who can taste steel, the glass carafe version looks great (and is easier to clean) than the original stainless.
- Options - Often times, the last thing you want in the morning is to stare at a backlit screen and click through menus with a dial.
- Wattage Woes - At a whopping 1700W, you may need to run this on its own circuit.
