- it does it all ! ... at one low price.- August 25, 2020
i'll owned a breville smart toaster for 16 years, and its still going strong, so my expectations where high, and so far, i've not been disappointed; this highly reviewed & recommended espresso machine required 16oz of a freshly roasted espresso beans (a *must*) to get “dialled in”. (“Ambrosia" from fluidcoffee dot ca) I needed settings of 1 (finest, from dflt 6) on the internal grind ring, and an external grind setting of ~8-9 (adjust this daily) to deliver quality espresso (dbl) shots as good as. or better than, local shops. wow. highly recommended. btw, to start, I’d highly recommend a kitchen scale to measure beans before grinding & a solid 53mm distribution/tamper tool to allow consistent shots, enjoy !Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.Helpful (2)Not helpful (0)Report
- 4-years now....- April 25, 2020
Read the reviews, did the comparative model research, and intended to write a review a few months later. Well it's been 4-solid years that I've been making 2 or more espresso's a day with zero regrets or complaints. It is a fantastic machine. And the reviews reflect that. Fresh and properly roasted beans are hard to find. I went through 5-10 well reviewed roasters before finding one that was legit and would result in a pulled shot that was rich with good crema. So, don't give up try another bean. You'll know when you've found the winner. It was a frustrating process but in the end totally worth it. Dialing in the grams to grind to tamp pressure is an art and will take some trial and error. If you want to buy and store beans in excess of what you'd use in a week or two buy a vacuum sealer. Seal the beans 3-5 days after roasting and freeze them. Take out a weeks worth as needed. Eventually these machines will fatigue. Mostly the water pump or solenoid assembly start to go. Currently I'm looking at replacing the solenoid assembly in my machine which I can repair myself for $100. I've read Breville will replace it for $250. Considering the cost of a new machine and after this many years of service I have no hesitation on doing the repair and having another 2-4 years or more of service. As others have mentioned there is a process unlike a fully automatic machine. If you don't mind the process go for it. If you just want to push a button then spend the grand and get a good automatic machine. Good luck! Happy cupping!Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.Helpful (11)Not helpful (0)Report
