Breville Coffee Maker Review


Quality of Commercial Espresso Machines for Home Brewing

Breville Coffee Maker has been serving millions of coffee lovers and connoisseurs for decades now.


Although the company has been producing quality small kitchen appliances since the 1930s it was only in the 1970s that Breville coffee machines came out in the Australian market and then other countries.

Breville concentrated in the espresso maker niche producing varied models to suit discriminating consumers.

Statistics show that there are more than 400 million cups of coffee served annually which translates to more than a billion cups of coffee served daily. That’s a lot of coffee!

Breville Company History – How It Started?

Breville needed to expand to meet the growing demands so that in 2001 the company merged with HWI to help fund Breville’s expansion to North America.

Breville coffee makers hit the USA market in 2003. Its products were an “instant” success in the USA because of their products’ high quality, excellent design and a price range that was well-received across the board.

All Breville espresso machines conform to the company’s high set of standards and its philosophy of design excellence. Though Breville initial target market was commercial users, they scaled down their product designs for home use.

Breville Keurig Coffee Maker Video Review

Single-serve coffeemaker is preferred by those who prefer a good shot of espresso without the hassle of grinding, brewing and cleaning up. The Keurig Breville coffee makers are actually Breville single-serve coffee maker models that adopted Keurig’s K-Cup single serve brewing system.

Here’s how to make coffee using the K-Cup and Breville single cup machines:

Open the lid of the coffee maker, insert a K-cup, close the lid, and press the appropriate button and presto! Your cup of coffee is ready.

There are various flavors of K-cup available so you are not limited to 1 or 2 flavors only.

The beauty of this single-serve coffee maker is that you can also use your own coffee ground using Breville coffee maker’s reusable “My K-Cup”. All you need to do is measure the right amount of your favorite coffee ground into “My K-Cup” then proceed as with a regular K-Cup. This coffee maker can also dispense hot water if you need to make instant cuppa and instant soup.

The BKC700XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer™ is one of Breville’s best offering in this category. Costing at around $250, this deal is a good value for your money as customer rating is 4.5/5 stars.
