    It keeps getting stuck the metal filter to the machine after you’re done with your espresso but other than that is reliable and pretty simple.


  • Worth the price!

    Pros: makes amazing espresso, it pays for its self if you frequently buy coffee in fancy coffee places.. this has actually not only paid for it self already but I have saved money as well. Cons: you become a coffee snob; no longer being able to just drink regular brewed coffee, even the fancy coffeeshop kind...


  • Best Espresso maker !!

    It took me about a week to get the grind size of the bean - but once I got that down, I've been making great espresso since!


  • Everything you'd expect from Breville!

    Not only does this machine look nice, but it is also very nice! I was sceptical with it being so expensive and after reading reviews on other espresso machines breaking down after a few months or people being disappointed with them not making REAL espresso. I decided to go with this machine and have NO regrets whatsoever! I have been able to make mocha and vanilla frappucino's just like you'd get at Starbucks - and it's a LOT easier than I thought with minimal cleanup. All you need is this machine, good medium roast coffee beans, chocolate or vanilla syrup, milk/sweet cream, ice, and a Ninja Bullet or other blender that can FINELY blend ice. Once you load the beans into the hopper, the machine does the rest. You can configure how much it grinds and from there it's a simple tap and it grinds just the right amount to brew. Initially, you might have to tweak this as you go to get it just the way you want it but in a week or two of using it you'll know right where the settings should be for single or double wall filters and single or double shots. The documentation that's included makes this easy to undertand and learn. From there you compress the grinds with the tamper tool and then brew. The pressure gauge helps show you the pressure that is applied to the brew so you can gauge what your espresso will come out like. Again, documentation covers this and there are many Youtube videos out there that'll help you learn. The frother works perfectly and far better than any I've used on cheaper machines. Being that it's stainless steel, it's also easy to clean and keep looking new. Overall, I'd highly recommend this machine to anyone who might be looking at other machines to make good espresso. Once you get it out and use it the first time you'll see why it costs what it does as it's truly built to last and is a high quality machine.

    Makes quality microfoam for lattes and tasty espresso. Would take getting used to for someone with no manual espresso machine experience, but is worth the effort.


  • Great for espresso beginners

    I have owned this espresso machine for nearly a year and I still love it. Literally every day I am able to pull consistent shots of espresso and drink them at their peak freshness. I am able to grind beans and control everything until I find the perfect balance for the beans I am using at the time. I have had zero issues with quality or maintenance and this machine is probably the best thing I bought for myself back in 2018. If you love espresso but aren't a jerk about it, this machine will literally suit all of your needs and the price is fair for everything that you're getting.... Sure there are more advanced or fully automatic machines out there but don't get caught up in those other bells and whistles.... Really think about what your personal espresso habits and needs are and then you will find that this machine can really do it all! Another thing that I really enjoy (that I hadn't previously considered prior to owning) is how convenient it is to have access to boiling hot water pretty much instantly. I use the hot water for obvious things like tea, but I also use it when I need boiling water for pastas and other cooking and it has made everything so much easier and faster. Even when you have to clean the machine, the directions are very clear, make sense and it's super easy to do. This machine is super dear to my heart and I love everything about it....If you are considering it, I would say just straight up buy it. #treatyoself #youdeserveit
