Makes a great cup of coffee

Firstly, I have been grinding my own beans and have made my own coffee since last century and have owned several machines previously, this unit makes a "great cup of coffee", I am pleasantly surprised at the huge amount of "crema" must be due to the infuser system. Have been a fan of compact units for easier cleaning. Currently I am limited with the height of the unit I can fit and this one just makes it, previous unit was a Delonghi EC860 which was terrific and has lasted 9 years but now needs a new pump which I will get replaced and use as a spare or give away but did not make as good a cup as the Breville. Show details

Better than Starbucks and it's in my kitchen!

I LOVE this machine! The quality of the coffee is great &consistent, the temperature is as expected: hot. Just a wee bit loud, but I might be sensitive. Overall, I am very happy & love making my own special brew. Show details

Very nice coffee Machine

I recently purchased this machine and have made a few cups of coffee. It was to replace a simpler Breville machine ( "Venicia") It is quieter and pulls a good shot, no problems with frothing the milk either. The quality and consistency appears good, and the temperature was also to my taste. Show details

Just rebought the same model - just too good at making coffee

We have had the same Breville machine for 15 years.
It's time to buy a new one, and although we could buy a more expensive coffee machine we have decided to stick to this machine - as it's so good.
Makes a great cup of coffee.
Yes there are more automated machines, but rarely do I think they taste as good.
Great value, great quality.

Great coffee, good value and bullet proof

I've had this for nearly 10 years makes good coffee and hasn't missed a beat. It's simple and if you know how to make good coffee you'll love it. After 10 years I only now have to replace one of the rubber seals. I bet you won't find a fully auto machine that will last this long. Show details

I'm In Heaven

I'm SO happy with my Coffee machine. Took me a few goes to get the right settings to my coffee taste but now making delicious flat whites is a breeze. Excellent crema and milk texturing. easy to clean and to look after.
having friends now for a cuppa it's a different league... Very Happy with my purchase !!

Frustrating Machine

The Steam Wand drips as it comes to temperature. The closer it gets to ready to use, the more it releases. Wouldn't be so bad, but the drip tray is tiny. The machine also requires a purge regularly. By the time you heat the wand, give it a purge and make a few cups, the tray needs emptying. Very frustrating and time consuming. Have to use a cup under the wand as it heats to catch the dripping water so I don't have to empty the tray so often. Also, no guide to let you know the milk is hot enough, so basically need to scald your hand by holding the steel cup to check.  Show details

An exact replacement for our previous 7 year old BES840SS

Good no fuss coffee machine which does exactly what you want - consistent fresh coffee. After 7 years of daily use (25,000 cups of coffee) our previous BES840 died :(.... How happy I was to find the exact model at an even lower price than the original purchase. Perfectly happy once again. Show details

Happy customer

I have had this coffee machine for more than 6 months and I am one happy customer. Never skipped a beat since the day we got it. It takes a while to get used to frothing the milk but after that making coffee is a breeze. Very good entry level machine. Show details

Love it!

Easy to use, produces coffee with an excellent flavour and crema. Can't go back to instant coffee after using this machine and no pods that I think are not environmentally friendly. Show details

Nice coffee machine, but I should've spent a bit more and get one model up

Overall very happy with the performance, good quality coffee and easy to clean. I don't like the watertank. I think it's too small, but the rest is very good. Quantity of accessories surprised and despite the fact I am not using half of accessories, it is a very nice bonus.

With current experience I would go with a bit higher model with embedded grinder. Show details

Excellent System, reliable and makes incredible coffee!

I love this machine! I have had mine for almost six years and it has worked flawlessly for that time! If there was an issue, the book that comes with it is so helpful and can walk you through almost any sort of event easily and quickly. The coffee is amazing and it is easy to clean and take care of. Show details

My Breville BES840 suddenly turned itself on, and now responds only to the wall socket. It makes the usual starting up clatter but doesn't stop until switched off at the wall.

Hi, my machine is about 6mths old and all of a sudden the portafilter has started turning during a shot. I have to hold it so it doesn’t come out. Any ideas? Thanks

My Infuser is less than a year old, but recently the group head seal popped. I bought another seal, but within a week it has popped again. Exactly same place, not broken just popped out and water/coffee sprays out. Haven’t changed coffee, grind or amount of coffee used. Any suggestions before I take it to service centre?
