What do you do when you drive a minivan, and you’re presented with a Lexus. It’s shiny, so sleek, and certainly performs better than your trusty minivan. But, could you pull it off? Would you hop in and drive it away or cautiously walk around it for awhile and determine that’s it’s far too advanced for you, minivan mom, and it’s best to stick to what you know?
I hopped in the Lexus.
If, that Lexus were a shiny brand new Breville Precision Brewer. I moved my one-cup coffee maker to the basement. This beauty is in my kitchen now for everyone to admire (and be jealous of, that too.)
The Precision Brewer is the world’s first drip coffee maker with precise and totally adjustable temperature control that allows you to brew oh so artsy brew-house coffee at home, automatically. With 6 unique brewing modes you can enjoy the perfect, balanced coffee exactly the way you like it. Brew a variety of craft coffee at home through customizable flavor and taste settings using a variety of filters to deliver the type of brew desired.
That’s where the intimidation came in when I saw this brewer delivered to my door. Would I, the regular cuppa Joe coffee drinker like a brewer with so many options, such precise settings? Sure, I could offer my friends some pretty amazing coffee treats when they visit (espresso anyone?) but for day-to-day use, would it be useful?
Ah-ha! Introducing Gold setting which is certified by SCA – they’ve literally discovered the gold standard for coffee drinkers and made a setting with it. The “My Brew Setting” allows you to customize any of the parameters like bloom time, brew temperature and flow rate to suit the particular coffee you’re using. So, once you play with the machine a bit and figure our your favorite settings, there’s no need to re-do them every time with this helpful programmable settings.

I also, as you can see in the video, utilized another Breville product – the Smart Grinder Pro! If you already have a coffee grinder, you are ready for amazing coffee with the Breville Precision Brewer, but if you’re looking for a combination that’s guaranteed to get some ooh’s and ahh’s from your guests – this is a beautiful marriage of Breville products to have on your counter-top.
I’m still learning about all the features of the Breville Precision Brewer, and am so looking forward to a warm cup of coffee first thing in the morning or in the afternoon watching the snow fall this winter. Working from home certainly has it’s…perks! 🙂
