Breville Grind Control BDC650 Overview

Our roundup of the best grind and brew coffee makers could be broken into 2 parts:

  • Best grind and brew coffee makers with burr grinders
  • Best grind and brew coffee makers with blade grinders

Burr grinders are far superior to blade grinders, so the Breville Grind Control easily tops all of those.

But even among the burr grinder models, the Breville Grind Control stands out.

  • You can change grind size.
  • It has a flat burr for a more uniform grind.
  • You can brew single 5 oz cups.

Add in the high-quality thermal carafe and the Breville brand name, and we have a winner.

About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
