On October 25, 2017, Breville introduced the Breville Precision Brewer, the world's first 12 cup drip coffee maker with precise and adjustable temperature control, utilizing digital (PID) technology. PID stands for proportional–integral–derivative and a PID controller is a control loop feedback mechanism widely used in industrial control systems and a variety of other applications requiring continuously modulated control. It automatically applies accurate and responsive correction to a control function. Combined with optimized water flow and contact time via its patent pending steep and release valve, the Precision Brewer allows versatility for automatic brewing from pour over to cold brew, offering coffee enthusiasts to enjoy great-tasting craft coffee at home.
"The unique precision heating and pump system sets the Breville Precision Brewer apart from most other Speciality Coffee Association (SCA) certified automatic drip coffee makers," said Phil McKnight, Global Beverage Business Manager, Breville Pty Limited. "The innovative PID technology, thermo-coil heater and a dedicated pump, typically seen in espresso machines, allows for precise and adjustable temperature control and optimal water flow. When it is combined as a system, it brews delicious tasting coffee no matter which style you prefer."
With the Breville Precision Brewer, the innovative PID technology offers consumers the option to choose between several brew modes, including:
- SCA certified Gold Cup
- Cold Brew
- Over Ice
- My Brew
- Pour Over
The new machine makes it easy to customize all the brewing variables with the My Brew mode, so you get the very best out of your favorite beans. It also has Small Cup Detection that produces a great tasting single-serve cup, and Fast mode which brews a true twelve cups in under seven minutes.
The Breville Precision Brewer is available for purchase at Williams Sonoma, Seattle Coffee Gear, and online at brevilleusa.com
