Enjoying one cup at a time with the Breville Precision Brewer

“The Breville Precision Brewer™ takes craft coffee brewing to a whole new level, giving you complete control over every critical element essential to creating craft coffee. From adjustable and precise water temperature, PID digital control and an adjustable flow rate for the right contact time, the Breville Precision Brewer™ surpasses the benchmark when it comes to craft coffee at home.”

 

I know you’ve heard me talk about the Precision Brewer from Breville Canada.  It’s offered me a delicious and precise cup of Joe as this is the bee’s knee’s when it comes to coffee machines. I have been thoroughly impressed playing around with the different features and I have found that I’ve enjoyed my coffee on the Gold setting the most.  More on that below.  This coffee machine is so easy to use and you are going to want one by the time you finish reading about it.

First of all.  What is the Precision Brewer?
It comes with 6 unique brewing functions(Gold, My Brew, Strong, Fast, Pour Over & Over Ice/Cold Brew) that delivers fresh, precise flavour to get the best out of your coffee.  Make it fast, make it strong, adjust the blooming, heck you can even make cold coffee and pour over ice!  It allows you to adjust the brewer to deliver any craft technique with ease, so you can enjoy perfectly balanced coffee, exactly the way you like it.   Can your coffee machine do that?   It also comes with two filters, one that is reusable and the other for paper liners. You also get a well-rounded coffee spoon for a perfect measure and of course the thermal carafe. Once you register your Precision Brewer you will also get artisanal coffee sent your way!  

How precise is the Precision Brewer?
According to the SCA standard parameters for Gold Cup brewing(my preference!), coffee should exhibit a brew strength, measured in Total Dissolved Solids, of 11.5 to 13.5 g/L, corresponding to 1.15% to 1.35% on the SCAA Brewing Control Chart, resulting from a soluble extraction yield of 18% to 22%. In simple terms, the Breville Precision Brewer™ passed with flying colours

Different coffees taste best when brewed at different temperatures. Too hot and the coffee will taste ashy. Too cold and the coffee will taste grassy and undeveloped. You can adjust brew water temperature at ± 2°F steps to get the best possible taste from your favourite coffee.

 I’ve been playing around with the “Settings” and the bloom time.  I thought that maybe a longer would be better, like my trusty ol’ French Press but it had bloomed for too long and was too bitter.  Coffee bloom occurs when hot water first comes into contact with the ground coffee. This setting allows you to adjust the length of the bloom time, ensuring an even extraction.  After trying different blooming times, I’ve found that the “Gold” setting is just perfect. I mean, it’s pretty neat that I can adjust the temperature of my coffee and if I’m in a pinch or have guests over, the “Fast” feature gives me 12 cups in 7  minutes!  My Chemex takes a lot longer and I can get the same high-quality brew with this.   Breville does offer a Pour Over Adapter so you can use a Hario V6 and Kalita Wave, it’s sold separately but I do want to try it!  Also with this coffee machine, you CAN adjust the “Flow Rate”, a slower flow rate will increase contact time leading to a bolder tasting cup, whereas faster speeds will produce a lighter tasting brew.  “Iced Coffee” is such a little luxury to have at home. One that actually tastes really good but my husband loves it.  I prefer it in the Summer.

I enjoy waking up to coffee ready made, nice tasting and hot suited to my preferences.  I was growing tiresome of my french press & Chemex(yes, I have a few ways to brew my coffee) and my Precision Brewer came at the right time.  Besides great tasting coffee at a reasonable great price($349) compared to the cost of my Chemex and filters I have found that I can get the same quality brew.  With all its great features, this one has won my heart, I don’t know how Breville can make it any better?!

  13. Judy Cowan | 5th Dec 17

    Loved learning about the 6 different brewing functions, I think this would come in very handy because everyone in this family likes their coffee a little different and with our current brewer you have to just take it how it makes it, no adjustment.

  14. Elizabeth Vlug | 5th Dec 17

    I didn’t know that the water temperature affected the taste of the coffee. That would explain why sometimes when I take a sip of really hot coffee I get that ashy taste. I don’t like that. lol. Thanks for explaining. This looks like a fabulous machine.

  15. Stephanie | 5th Dec 17

  47. NJ Nowoselski @njnowski | 8th Dec 17

    I was impressed by how much you know about making coffee! We admit we made the mistake of giving up our coffee maker for a Keurig 🙁 We now have our $10 camper coffee maker in the house in hopes we find a better one. I say your “Fast” feature gives me 12 cups in 7 minutes” This is great for the ones in the house who are still addicted to immediate coffee, even though it is not great coffee! All the options on this machine is exactly what we would love for each of us has our own liking when it comes to coffee. Thanks for the information here

  48. Holly D | 8th Dec 17

    I learned that there are 6 unique brewing functions! I love the cold brew option!

  49. kathy downey | 8th Dec 17

    Wow,control coffee temperature brewing to perfection that’s great

  50. AleashaC | 8th Dec 17

    My youngest is only 3m old and with her being my 4th I have embraced coffee. Never was a coffee drinker before, but now need it. Unfortunately what I have experienced as “coffee” is really only bean water. I would love to try a great cup of coffee! It was so neat to learn about brew temperature. Makes sense, but I guess just something that no one really thinks of.

  51. Diana Z | 9th Dec 17

    I learned that you can adjust the temperature of the coffee.

  52. Victoria Ess | 9th Dec 17

    I like that the temperature of the coffee is adjustable!

  53. nicky | 9th Dec 17

    I liked learning about brew strength!

  54. Melinda | 9th Dec 17

    Adjusting the temperature is a wonderful feature.

  55. sab Edwards | 9th Dec 17

    the “Fast” feature gives me 12 cups in 7 minutes! I have a different brand and my machine is extremely old (its a restaurant machine so might be over 20yrs old) and although it does brew 12cups in 3 min, sometimes its not super hot coffee at all

  56. Rebecca Roberts | 10th Dec 17

    In learned about coffee bloom…I’ve never heard of it until your post!

  57. Krista M | 10th Dec 17

    What I was excited to discover is the Breville Precision Brewer has a Pour Over Ice/Cold Brew setting! My daughter & I would be using that through every season for iced coffees!

  58. Toby | 10th Dec 17

    Waking up to a ready made cup of my favorite brew!

  59. Yuen C | 11th Dec 17

    I love the fast feature – perfect for a party!

  60. Cheryl H | 12th Dec 17

  61. Caryn Coates | 12th Dec 17

    I love the 6 unique brewing functions

  62. Bailey Wilson | 12th Dec 17

    I love that it makes specifically for iced coffee. I can never get it quite right.

  63. Jennifer P. | 13th Dec 17

    What I liked learning the most about was how precise you can make a cup to suit your taste – I found the reference to iced coffee particularly interesting because I really don’t like watered down iced coffee. I love that I could make just the right concentrated brew for the right flavour balance over ice!!

  64. Suzie B (Soozle) | 13th Dec 17

    I like the fast feature you mentioned – it would be perfect for hosting get togethers
