  • Really Impressed
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Mario C - April 20, 2021

    Outstanding Quality. The build and design function are 1st class. Well done Breville, we impressed. We have now switched from using Nespresso, to making our own brew again. Apart from the immense cost savings over Nespresso (between my wife and I, we drink 10 cups a day), the convenience and speed is excellent. And quality of our brews is fabulous. We have a Baratza grinder, scale, and I bought a 54mm open bottom Portafilter, but the pressurized Breville Portafilter, does a great job. And honestly, I prefer it! My only suggestions would be the top surface of the tray should be coated, or made from durable hard rubber or a thermal plastic. We cover the cup area of ours with a black rubber mesh (used for non-slip drawer lining). It protects it against scratches and prevents the small vibration of the Bambino from causing the cup to move. These are really minor issues and easily addressed by users. So bottom line - great machine.

  • Lovely, compact machine
    Reviewed by BC Skier - December 20, 2020

    I chose this model primarily because of the compact size and simplicity (and of course the price tag). Had I known the Bambino Plus was going on sale for the same $399, I probably would have bought that, but it sold out apparently in hours, so we stayed with this one. We don't really need the extra flashing lights. So far we're very happy! It heats the water shockingly fast and brews delicious, creamy espresso in no time. The steamer could be more powerful, but it works well. Our first few drinks have been delicious

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Steam function no longer works
    Reviewed by LN - May 28, 2021

    The little machine has very mixed reviews. We decided to buy it anyways as the physical size of the machine was perfect, and had a good price point. We've owned the machine for 2 months now (maybe a little less), and we loved it up until a day or so ago. It makes great espresso, and contrary to other negative reviews, produced a perfect temperature. That being said the 3rd or 4th espresso made back to back is the hottest (that's to be expected) - make sure you prime the machine to heat the water! So why 2 stars? The steam wand, which has only been used a handful of times, stopped working. And not because of improper cleaning....the steam now comes out of the bottom of the machine (via the catch basin) so there must be a misconnect in the machine. Still makes espresso find, but we can no longer use the wand for hot water and steaming.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Great "little" machine
    Reviewed by Northa60 - January 12, 2021

    I had the Cafe Roma machine for quite a few years, it packed it in and I just never replaced it. After all the Starbucks I was buying I decided I could have paid for this machine a few times over! I really like the machine, it doesn't take up any space, it heats up quickly and does everything one needs it to do aside from grinding the espresso beans but really, I have a grinder that does the job. The Breville machines that grind espresso take up a lot of space and weren't worth it to me to pay the extra money for them! There's nothing I don't like about this machine!

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Highly Recommend
    Verified BuyerReviewed by C Schneider - September 25, 2021

    After researching quite a few machines, I decided to go with the Breville Bambino, and I never looked back! This machine is little, but mighty. I love the fact that you can completely customize the shot time/volume to allow you to pull the perfect shot. There’s no waiting for the machine to heat up, no hard clean up, and no questioning whether or not it’s time to descale (it reminds you!). The steaming wand is a little loud to start, but very quickly quiets down. It would be nice to have the ability to adjust the steam pressure, as the pressure it produces is quiet strong- but believe me, it does create velvety foam. If your looking for anything other than a cappuccino, this machine is for you!
