I've owned the YouBrew for about a month now and we've been using it 2-3 times per day, enough to make me feel comfortable reviewing it and addressing some of the concerns other reviewers have had.

First thing you need to know is the unit is really that big! It's beautiful if you like stainless steel but it does take up space. It won't comfortably fit under most kitchen cabinets because you need top access to the coffee bean hopper and the tank lid for pouring in fresh water. Breville makes all their appliances big and stainless steel bulky - it's meant to be displayed and will certainly earn the admiration of visitors.

Second, it is noisy, but the grinding isn't any noisier than any good grinder, I'm talking about $150+ grinders like a Baratza, not your cheap $20 grinders that tend to burn the coffee beans. The Breville grinder does a great job and the grinds are consistent in size throughout. The grinding doesn't last that long - depends on how many cups of coffee you're making. For a single cup, it grinds 5-10 secs, seriously, people nitpick the wrong things because they're so used to cheap grinders, not the quality ones that espresso aficionados use.

Third, the carafe does an outstanding job of keeping coffee warm for hours but I agree it is difficult to get out every last drop - the carafe's design is to keep the coffee warm without using a hot plate. I believe if you're buying such an expensive coffee maker you probably appreciate the taste of freshly ground and brewed coffee and are not looking to keep it hot for hours before consuming. This is not your truck stop coffee maker that makes sludge and overheats it for hours. This is for people who want fresh, fresh, fresh. You can make a cup at a time or any amount up to a carafe of 12 cups.

I've had one of these for about two years now. It makes awesome coffee. It can be a bit finicky, for instance, there is a chrome disc between the filter and the grinder that must be kept absolutely clean to prevent water from leaking underneath it. As well, it's got a basket filter, but because of the size of the basket it's not uncommon for the filter to overflow grounds into the carafe. I switched to cone style filters and this problem is gone. It does also tend to use more coffee beans than I was used to, but I can't fault the end product!
It's best to use a drier coffee bean as well, the really oily ones cause the grinder chute to plug up and you need to frequently get in there with something small to unplug it. I've found the Kirkland Espresso Blend from Costco works great in it and makes superb coffee.
Knowing about these small issues makes this an awesome coffee maker, so much so I bought one for my parents. The thermos carafe keeps the coffee hot for a ridiculous amount of time without heating the coffee again. You will never again taste burnt coffee with this machine.
I was tempted to give this 5 stars because of how good the coffee is, but with the above issues I thought 4 stars was more appropriate.

I love this coffee maker so much I have one at the office too! Very user friendly. What I love about this is that you can choose the strength of flavor as well as how strong you like it. You can also choose to make a part or full carafe or just a cup (regular, large or extra large size cup). The carafe is stainless steel and double insulated and holds the heat very wel

By Melissa TOP 500 REVIEWER on Nov. 30 2012
Have had this coffee maker for a few days, and love it! The coffee tastes fantastic, and the carafe keeps it warm for a long time.

Pros:
- Don't need to measure out the coffee needed when using the whole beans - perfect cup of coffee every time. (this is my favorite. It lets me be lazy)
- Can make as much or as little coffee as you like - many single cup and carafe settings
- Can use fresh beans, or pre-ground coffee easily
- No need for t-discs or k-cups
- Carafe keeps the coffee warm for a long time - and fresh
- Carafe doesn't have a glass liner, like most do (less chance of breaking/leakage)
- Easy to clean, as far as all in one coffee makers go. Even comes with a mini-brush that stores in the grinder area, so it's on hand when you need it to clean the grinder/chute.

Cons:
- Takes a bit longer to brew, even on single cup setting (it is worth it though - the coffee is much like that from a french press).
- Expensive up-front (though I find it's a good investment instead of buying coffee discs and the extra waste they cause)
- The price fluctuates drastically - by about $100.
- The interior of the carafe stains if you leave coffee in it for too long. This is really minor - and warned about in user manual. I consider this a fair trade-off for not using plastic or glass inside the carafe.

Tips:
- It is definitely a learning experience trying to figure out which strength you want your coffee - don't underestimate even the mid-level settings. I love a strong cup of coffee and I find I'm most content with the 2nd lowest strength setting.
- Get a product protection plan if you can. If you're already going to spend this kind of money, protect your investment to extend the warranty.
