This machine boats of its integrated burr, which is designed to crush various types of coffee beans. It can brew both single cup and full pots of fresh coffee on demand. No technical skill is necessary to operate the machine. A few clicks on the buttons are enough to give you fresh cup of coffee every time.



Its robust design and distinctive looks really makes it the best personal coffee-maker, but it really takes up a lot of space. It measures around 9 inches across, 16.3 inches tall and 14 inches deep. The coffee maker is encased in a robust sheath of brushed metal. The finishing touch is really mesmerizing; the body is designed in a robust and sturdy manner.

Almost every key are manufactured using reflective surfaces, along with radio-dial concentric circle patterns.




After the YouBrew is filled up with coffee beans, water is required to be added to the reservoir, which is a little difficult as compared to other burr grinder appliances like Cuisinart Burr Grind and Brew. Users need to carefully reach the back side of the unit to comfortably decant the water. There is a narrow opening through which the water needs to be poured into the reservoir, and maximum care needs to be taken to avoid spilling. There is the YouBrew’s float feature which is highlighted in red and designed to provide physical feedback on the level of water available. The water level is also indicated on the fancy LCD screen. The best part is that the machine will give out a beeping sound as warning in case you pour excess water.
