- The only machine you need- February 7, 2020
for the entry level coffee fan and the experienced barista alike, this machine is absolutely ideal. Most will complain about the learning curve but that's beyond necessary. I thoroughly enjoyed learning how to froth milk and pull shots properly. Which each new coffee I try I get to repeat a fun process all over again. temperature control is great and the maintenance is easy. I've paired this with the smart grinder pro and it's the best purchase I've made in a long time. Breville just get's it, seems like all products have this pro-sumer level to them. I future I'll outfit my whole kitchen with their appliances
- Less reliable after a few years- July 13, 2020
I was quite pleased with the espresso shots I got from the Infuser when I initially got the machine. However, after only a few months, the steam wand needing repairs (luckily under warranty) and then after a few years, the pump needed replacing to the tune of $200+. Now, just 7 months after replacing the pump, the pressure is inconsistent again. Using the exact same grind, amount of ground coffee and same tamping pressure, I can get a variety of results from a perfect shot to one where the needle barely moves, to one where the needle hits correct pressure and then suddenly plummets. All these problems despite my doing regular cleanings and descaling. So, for about $800 over 3 years, it’s not a great deal. My 13 year-old back-up Starbucks (Saeco) machine still gives a more consistent result and I’ve only invested about $500 including the cost and time-ups every 4 years. I’ve contacted Breville but I’m not getting much support so far.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

- Superb machine- July 12, 2020
I've had this unit for 6 years using it everyday. It makes great espresso better than most coffee around town. You have to spend a lot more money for a better cup. For best results, you have to figure out the right tamper of the grinds and coarseness of grind as well as amount. I use the same coffee beans for consistency and I also use the Breville smart grinder (grind your own for perfection) as well which a great machine as well. There is a learning curve but once you know how it's second nature. Complaints? minor: I would have paid a bit more for a stainless top but the plastic one is fine.
