I have had the Breville Precision Brewer for two-ish years, and I do really like it. It makes reliably good coffee that is hot hot, which is a nonnegotiable for me—lukewarm coffee is the sad middle ground I like to save for around 11:30 a.m. The “precision” elements are abundant. You can use the presets—gold, fast, strong, iced, and cold brew—or you can design your own. I’ll be honest: I only ever use gold, so the other settings are lost on me.

I wanted this model so I could make both a pot of coffee and single cups without needing two machines. I use the one-cup brew once in a while, but I find that the “small cup detection” is subpar. It’s supposed to control the water and coffee without the carafe, but it always beeps before it’s actually done, and even the cone filter baskets don’t always let out all the coffee.
