  • Stainless Steel Burrs make consistent coffee each time
  • LCD display with all the grinder settings


  • Not too durable - machine breaks after prolonged use

1. LCD Screen

The LCD screen feature in the Breville Grind Control Coffee Maker works like a mirror during the coffee brewing process. It displays the complete brewing process. This active LCD screen displays all the settings that you make before the coffee making process begins. These settings include grinding time, water level, brewing time, strength selection and the option to choose your preferred cup size. This machine also has an auto-start system that allows you to set the timer on the display screen. It starts automatically at the chosen time.

2. Stainless Steel Burrs

This machine has an adjustable mill that balances the size of the coffee beans. It grinds the beans completely until they reach the perfect consistency. This helps you obtain the authentic flavor of coffee. The stainless steel burrs provide a precise and coherent particle size for adequate aroma potential. Along with an authentic aroma, the Breville Grind Control Coffee Maker has up to 8 strength settings. These settings allow you to choose the strength of your beverage. You can either have a pre-ground coffee or choose these settings.

3. Steep And Release Technology

The Breville Grind Control Coffee Maker is a fine machine that has a unique feature. This machine will allow you to grind and brew your coffee into your coffee cup or a carafe. Some people also prefer to use a travel mug. This feature is beneficial for users as they do not have to grind coffee separately and then pour it into the cup. Even though this procedure is a bit different than other coffee makers, it does not play with the flavor of your coffee. It will brew a perfectly balanced and an extremely delicious drink for you.


1. Not Easy Too Clean

There are various coffee makers available that offer a simple user interface and an easy method of cleaning. These machines are usually preferred by people since cleaning takes a lot of time and effort. The Breville Grind Control Coffee Maker is one of those machines that will require plenty of your time and effort. You will have to clean the machine after every time you use it. Those people who do not have enough time or need a machine that is low maintenance should look for other options too.

2. Not Too Durable

As compared to other coffee makers, a lot of people think that the Breville Grind Control Coffee Maker is a bit more expensive. Even though the machine offers various features, yet some people do not want to spend so much on it. Since it is an expensive machine, people assume that it will be durable. However, it is not true. The machine breaks after prolonged use and you will be required to spend on a new one again. So it is recommended that before buying it, you look at all the features properly.

Consumer Ratings for the Breville Grind Control Coffee Maker:

At the time of writing the Breville Grind Control Coffee Maker has 1944 reviews on Amazon with an average rating of 3.9 out of 5 stars. Almost 57% of the consumers have rated it as a five star product.

The positive feedback outnumbers the negative feedback of the Breville BDC650BSS Grind Control Coffee Maker. The consumers have commented specifically about the hot coffee it delivers and if there is some coffee left in the carafe it will still stay drinkable even after a few hours. This has taken aback a lot of consumers as this does not happen while using other coffee machines. The next feature they are pleased by is the option of adjustable settings of the grinder that can be set for an ideal flavor of coffee just like an individual prefers. The option of either making one cup or up to 12 cups just in one carafe is also appreciated by many consumers. The cleaning up process is easy and does not require a lot of time which also benefits the consumers as it saves up the time. Last but not the least, the modern and sleek design is also complimented by users.

There are no major issues that surfaced except for the coffee beans clogging the grinder and the gold filter that does not catch the particles. The consumers, however, resolved these issues by regularly cleaning the grinder and using paper filters instead of the gold filter that comes with the coffee machine. On the whole the coffee machine delivers tasty and hot coffee just like the consumers prefer.

Bottom Line:

The Breville Grind Control Coffee Maker is recommended for those who have very specific coffee needs. It grinds coffee beans to every individual’s liking. Plus, it is easy to use so it is a good investment for beginners who want to make coffee at home.
