Still going strong after 2 years of daily use
I bought this back in 2020 and it has been used daily since.
It takes a few attempts to figure out the best grind setting to pull the perfect espresso shot, but once you have it dialled in it produces a very consistent cup. I think this system also has a PID controller to get the extraction temperature just right. And the prefusion feature is great!
Milk frothing is fast and perfect everytime, although like most small machines, the wand is a bit short for my liking.
One more thing, I have the black version. If you're thinking about getting the black versuon you should know it is veneered in plastic and not polished metal, like the standard grey one. In hindsight I would have purchased the grey one as the plastic is starting to scratch.

Good Coffee Machine, however....hard to disassemble and clean out cockroaches!
It a good machine that makes great coffee however the downside is it gets too complicated to clean it. This applies to all Breville Coffee Machines. They make a great hiding home for cockroaches! The bug also loves coffee and nest inside the machine as well. The design to pull apart for cleaning is really a headache. Everytime they make something, they always forget that they also make great homes for bugs as well. Breville designers should make every food machine to be "Easy to Disassemble and Reassemble" I only had it for 2 years. I live in a...very clean pest controlled house where I never find cockroaches in my food cupboard or kitchen. The easiest to clean machine is one of those expensive cafe "Rocket Giotto" coffee machines that has two easy to open side covers with a couple of screws for easy cleaning where there is nowhere for cockroaches to hide. Yeah, oh well.
This is a Barrista's coffee machine - or a coffee lovers dream
I have owned many coffee machines some have cost many thousands of dollars. But none are as good as this machine. If you put too much pressure or the grind is too fine, and your machine has a timer, you will end up with a small shot of coffee. Not with this little baby, you just let it run longer because you have control over the amount of hot water you are putting through the group head. Milk frothing is a dream, you can turn the handle on the front to the right, to switch to steam, go to the fridge, get the milk out and pour some into a jug, ...by this time the steam will be shooting out of the nozzle, turn the handle back from 2 pm to 1 pm, this will hold the pressure and cut off the steam, insert the nozzle into the milk jug and gently return the handle of the front to 2 P, no mess just a nice steaming gurgle. I generally wait until I can no longer hold the bottom of the jug because it's too hot, count to five slowly. Return the handle to 12 noon, remove the jug, give the steam wand a shot of hot steam by returning the handle to 2pm, wipe the nozzle. Pour the milk into my coffee and enjoy are bliss. p.s. I don't bother with a grinder, I simply buy 250 grams of coffee expresso ground and keep it in the packet in a cupboard and use a spoon to fill the portafilter (I use the one with the small hole).

Great Home Coffee Machine
The coffee machine is great and once you figure out the right amount of coffee grounds to put in for your regular coffee it's perfect. Love the steam wand and the maintenance is very easy. Have had it for over a year now and use it 2+ times a day. Very happy with it

It’s pretty good but.........
The machine is good. It doesn’t take to long to make a coffee. But I just could not get a nice cup that I enjoyed out of it. I tried different brands and tamping . I ended up going to buy a breville capsule machine

Perfect!- As coffee transcends to hobby from habit
This machine is everything you'd hope for for a home coffee experience. Not only it pulls tasty espressos, it is incredibly easy to operate, clean and maintain- which can be a hassle otherwise.
For this price range, it stands head and shoulders above its competition and gets you comparable results compared to top-of-the-line commercial equipment.
The steam wand is relatively ok but a bit slow if you're making a few cappuccinos for your guests. It is also recommended that you preheat the machine to get consistent brewing temperature and consistent espressos.

I love it!
This machine pours and steams at the correct temperature, it's just like having a professional dual boiler machine. It is super easy to use and easy to clean and maintain.

6 years strong
Got this machine with the pack that came with the grinder 6 years ago and still makes a great coffee. We use nearly twice to three times a day x 2 people. I have thought about upgrading to an all in one machine to save bench space but I can't justify the extra cost and I don't want a pod machine. We find you can't tamp too much or it will struggle to get through, and we usually use the double shot filter, I find the single makes it too watery. Overall love the machine and would purchase again!

Reliable machine but so-so coffee
My machine has been going strong for 4 years after a run of more expensive machines that died early, and I was thinking of buying one as a housewarming present for my daughter, but I have to admit the coffee is just not that great. Sometimes it does deliver a good cup with lots of crema, but despite having two boilers the water is often too hot and I get a thin watery coffee. Also the coffee can only be very lightly tamped or the pump just won’t push the water through, which is not ideal for good coffee. Regular cleaning of the baskets is essential. The frother is incredibly noisy, so I bought a Nespresso milk frother, and writing this I’ve now convinced myself to buy a different machine as a present to myself.
Great home coffee machine
I've had this machine since Mother's Day and have been thoroughly enjoying it. It's incredibly easy to set up, use & clean.
The milk steamer does output a bit of water before steaming but that's easily avoided by letting it run for a few seconds over the tray.

Great value for entry level coffee machine
I have been wanting to get a coffee machine at home. So because of the lockdown now, I get this one from BigW. This coffee machine is so affordable and do its job so great. Although there is no pressure meter on the machine and not programmable, I can still get good coffee from this machine everyday.

Best coffee machine ever
Best buy. The coffee is always good, right taste, right temperature. Easy to clean and descale, and don't have to do it very often. Couldn't be happier with it. Combined it with a grinder as well.
Purchased in April 2018 for $1,000.
Great machine, doubly handy now we’re stuck in the house!
Have always wanted to get a coffee machine, and picked this up at a bargain price from Big W. It’s easy to use, makes great coffee consistently, and has paid for itself now we’re in isolation!

Die for a cup!
Do you like coffee? The Breville Duo-temp Pro has been on my kitchen bench for about a month now. It replaced a slightly larger Breville machine which was a hand-me-down which gave years of good coffee for both the original owner and for myself. Pros: smaller footprint than the previous machine. Comes with better accessories than previous machine. Makes great coffee. Cons: smaller water tank than previous machine. Machine does move when attaching the handle as it is a bit on the light side. Overall I am very satisfied with this machine.

Questions & Answers
Hi, I've been loving my duo temp 810 for years but yesterday my frothing wand blew off at the base while steaming milk- loud pop and milk everywhere! The threaded fitting that the wand mounts to snapped. I still can't believe it was nylon or sch80 pvc. I'm pretty sure it is an integrated part that had a threaded end and not a small replaceable nipple. I can't find a link anywhere for this fix. Anyone heard of this?
Thanks in advance,
The water in our brand news Duo Temp Breville will not move from the reservoir into the machine. Any ideas?
My machine seems to have steam and water droplets escaping fron around the hex attachment at the top of the steam wand. It is tight, how do I fix this please Thanks
