Got three of these throughout y family. The two stop fairly consistantly automatically before the mugs overflow despite only a inconsistant herb grinder being used, the third does not despite a propper corseness adjustable coffee conical burr grinder being used with this one ...phoned up breville about this and they insist this model does not have autostop feature.. go figure???think they need to test theur own products a bit better... furthermore, despite consistant grinding corseness, tamping and mug size, from the same pack of freshly ground coffee on the same day it overflows by varying amounts. the fancy a lucky draw?... buy a breville!
Purchased in September 2019 at Big W Retail Stores for $250.00.
Not up to its ancestry
My Breville 800 series machine broke down this morning , catastrophic pump failure , it was well over twelve years old and gave sterling service each and every morning during that time .
The GoodGuys sold me its replacement for $349 , great I thought, the old one was so good I expected the same from this new model , it looked almost identical .
Looks are obviously deceptive , the coffee tasted frightful despite playing around with grind size , filter cups and infusion time . Bitter , burnt coffee from previously sweet and aromatic grinds . S...
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.

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
