Can’t live without
The Brevile coffee machine is what starts my day. It is super easy to use. The coffee tastes better than any coffee shop. You do not have to be a barista to use it, and cleaning is a breeze. If you are thinking of purchasing a coffee machine this is the one to get.
It’s easy to use if you have a basic understanding of making barista style coffee and milk frothing
Comes with everything you need except the coffee haha
Which is perfect because you get to choose any which one and all that you like! From organic to Swiss filtered decaf
makes a great cuppa and silky milk
cannot fault , Only way you get a bad coffee is if you dont run water through the coffee terminal before using each time , frother makes silky milk easy to clean and compact. If you know how to use a coffee machine properly you can't go wrong every time!
Never used to drink coffee regularly but after buying this for my hubby now cant go without my morning coffee taste so good and is super quick and easy to make/&clean. :)
Comes with little cleaning tools so milk build up is never an issue. Have not had any problems with this machine :)
Great value machine
This was a downgrade for me since moving away from a housemate that had the next model up so I do miss the built-in grinder and slightly sturdier feel, but this machine nonetheless makes very good coffee and is easy to use. It doesn't take up too much bench space and is very intuitive.
If you know your coffee and know how to make coffee -this is the perfect machine!
This machine is basic, yet powerful and ideal for the person who knows their way around a manual coffee machine.
There is nothing complicated, just need to know your grinds and measurements. It is not as simple as a capsule machine, but not much more complicated.
Very easy to clean
Pumps out quality coffee all the time
Very impressed with this product,
Ideal for a espresso drinker
Good coffees with a little practice
Making a good coffee with this machine needs some practice, however the machine is easy to use and easy to clean. All the parts are good quality and machine has very low maintenance costs. Overally I'm happy with it and am using it everyday in the mornings if I have time to make coffee. It takes me about 8 minutes to prepare the coffee.
Simple and easy to use
Coffee as always tastes amazing, but more than anything the machine is easy to take apart and clean. Compared to my previously purchased coffee machine which was very loud when making the coffee, this one is quieter, so its a very successful purchase. Considering the price, it seems very affordable for its quality.
Great Coffee Everytime
For the price, this is a great coffee machine. I had to replace my old coffee machine and the assistance I had from Breville customer service was excellent. They suggested the Duo Temp would be best suited for my needs and they were right. Easy to use, looks good, and to top it off, makes great lattes every time. Very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend this machine.
A great first machine
Its easy to clean and use with its straightforward design and the coffee always tastes great! Also as a plus it isn't too noisy!! I have never owned a coffee machine like this before and I wish I had bought one sooner. I am quite happy with my cafe quality coffee machine!
Perfect first machine
Ive owned this machine for just over a year now and I can't really fault it. It is the first espresso machine I've ever had and has been a perfect introduction to cafe quality homemade coffee. After a bit of practice it makes a perfect brew everytime. It may not have all the bells and whistles of the more expensive machines, but it is simple and easy to use and has only what it needs to make an amazing coffee. Before long it will be your own coffee that will be your standard to compare all others against, and it won't be often you taste another as good. If you're looking for a budget first machine you can't really go wrong.
Breville customer service awful
We love a good coffee and since we live next to a cafe it's pretty hard not to buy a take away so to stop this is we thought we'd upgrade our machine. We have been using a little sunbeam which was fine but the milk frother on it didn't seem to get hot enough. I purchased this from Harvey Norman for $350 which is a mid priced machine. The problem is that the insert in the group head constantly falls out when it is taken off the machine to empty. Super dangerous when it gets stuck on the part that the hot water flows out from. We also bought a ba...ng bang to put our coffee grinds into. It also falls out when we use this. The breville team agreed to send me a steel ring to insert in the head which has not made the slightest bit of difference. The head has just became blocked even after washing after ever use. We buy boutique beans so the coffee has been good but the milk frother average. Wouldn't buy again.
A very nice coffee
I'm no coffee expert but I really like the latte I make with this machine, It's easy to clean, not too noisy, easy to use so I'm quite happy. I also purchased the matching grinder to go with. A slight pain to find the filters but I rang breville and they organised over the phone to post them out to me which was quick so I'm happy
Easy to use
I got this Cofee machine as a gift from a friend. It's easy to use and easy to clean. However it takes time to prepare the coffee in the mornings with all the steps of making the coffee and preparing the milk. I prefer having my coffee ready within 5 minutes of waking up so the capsule ones work better for me.
Coffee tastes good with a little practice on preparing the milk properly. I use it during weekends and never had a problem with it so far.
Fire Hazard - pump does not turn off
Within 7 months of purchase, using once a day, the machine failed. Likely the switch. The pump continued to run if machine switched on or off. Had to unplug it. Failure is one thing. A fire risk and Breville refusing to take responsibility is another. Video of fault at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEPLsRw46nk
They didn't find a fault when they tested the machine, and refused to look at the video or let me know they the fault as it happened via facetime or skype. They sent a LAWYER to the consumer tribunal (NCAT) who was not able to ne...
Questions & Answers
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
I have just bought this. I can not seem to get a good strong coffee from it. It just seems really watery and very weak. Can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong please?
depending on which basket you use, you will want to use a certain amount of ground coffee. the duo temp pro comes with an 18g basket and i believe a 12g. In my opinion i would say go for the 18g. make sure u coffee is ground fine enough but not so fine you get only a few drops out. you want to aim for a 36g pull during 27-30 seconds. if you are using pre-ground coffee use the pressurised "dual wall" basket. keep in mind none of these variables are set in stone so feel free to play around with them. theres a playlist on youtube that i really recommend: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTFsBqhpLes&list=PLxz0FjZMVOl15gHRbhcZSDvlgUV4vxnp9
Can I use generic cleaning powders to clean machine? Thanks
Don't know about powders, but I put 2 litres of vinegar through it....I put the vinegar in, let it sit for about 2 hrs, then let 1/2 out through the coffee part and then the rest out through the milk nozzle. Then I repeat with about 2 full water containers. I've had mine forever
