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.

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.
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.
Purchased in December 2013.

Everyday put the nescaf away
By all means do yourself a favour and get yourself one of these machines. Simple easy to use . Not a lot of maintenance and heats up quickly within ten secs of switching on.

This machine does all I need for a cheap price!
I mainly drink long blacks, so I didn't need to pay extra for the double boiler. This pulls shot easily and comes with everything you need for a beginner.
Wait for a sale! You can get it at a reduced price! Purchased at Myer for $499!
Machine works well, but too many plastic parts that are expensive to replace.
I am satisfied with the quality of coffee produced by the machine.
The quality of coffee produced by the machine is consistent.
Great product. It won't last forever though.
I'm on my second Breville Infuser. My first one lasted four years, that's not great but it probably made around three thousand coffees, so the machine is costing about 15 cents a coffee. They used to make a professional series machine that was similar and had a 5 year pump warranty but it seems consumers weren't willing to pay the extra, so I don't think we can entirely blame Breville for longevity issues.
For the price the machine is hard to beat, although the Breville Bambino Plus in stainless steel is currently $399 after cash back from the...Good Guys (bizarrely black and matte white cost an extra $50). I have used a friend's Bambino and it's close to on par with the infuser. One thing I don't understand is why the Infuser pricing seems to vary wildly. I'm not even talking price variation between stores; I bought my first Infuser at Myer for $399 but now Myer are selling them for $750.
Doesn’t last long
This machine makes good coffee and is easy to use. However, the lifespan of the machine is poor. This is my second Breville coffee machine I have purchased - both times they just stop working after about 2 years. I’m very disappointed with these machines and I’m going to buy another brand tomorrow.
Good favorite machine
I am really satisfied with the quality of the coffee produced by the machine, and the taste is similar to that of the coffee shop outside.
The coffee produced can guarantee the same quality.
This coffee machine is also very convenient to clean.
A product with high performance.
Friends who are hesitating can not hesitate.
Great machine! Use it at least twice a day!
This is a really great machine. We got it as a wedding gift 6 years ago. We used it at least twice a day and it made good quality coffees (better than a lot of cafes). Finally, after 6 years of heavy use, it gave up. We liked it so much that we went straight out and bought the exact same one.
You do need to purchase a decent grinder with it to make the best coffee. We opted not to go for the model with inbuilt grinder and use a $50 Sunbeam grinder from Target which works fine.
We would have loved a duel boiler (froth the milk at the same time the coffee pours) but that was a huge extra cost.
Overall, this is one of our most used household appliances.
Used Twice a day, everyday.
Have had for over 2 years. The only fault I can find is an intermittent water leak from the back of the storage tray, but not a big problem just mop it up and away she goes. Super simple to use; large tank capacity; enough accessories for every taste; froths the milk wonderfully; easy to clean and water temp is hot enough.
No need to go out for coffee anymore
Purchased together with a BCG820 Grinder..the perfect combo.
The BES840 creates sensational coffee....equal to any cafe.
After a number of attempts with the milk frother i can now make the exact cafe latte, flat white or cappuccino & i'm no barista.
It is used numerous times a day and gives no hassles.
Easy to clean, easy to fill, extremely simple to use and its compact size means less counter real estate taken up.
Breville has done a marvelous job with this machine.
If my grandma can use it anyone can
It is a great machine making a proper coffee. Very easy to use as well as easy to keep it clean. Even my granny could make a decent coffee without me having to explain the works of it. Only possible downside I could think of is that it’s a bit loud but so are the other machines too.
Better than takeaway coffee
I kept spending loads of money on coffee to take into work and have during lunch but when I got this I've saved loads of money and it dose a really good job and has loads of different option controls. It makes really hot drinks which I've had in a flask last for almost 12 hours still warm!
Above adequate for a non commercial jobee
Let’s face it. There is not a home coffee machine on the planet that squeezes the begeezus out of a grind like a commercial one. The oils and so on that provide the real barista experience dimply can’t be extracted by any home machine, including this one. That being said, it is reliable, durable, well made, great design (Go Australian Industrial Designers!) and the result is a coffee that will...provide that fix you need. As far as drug delivery systems go? It does it!
Love this machine
I make a minimum of three coffees a day with this machine, and it's fantastic. Good pressure, and the pre-infusing setting is great. The design is simple and clean, and the small size means it doesn't take up too much space on the bench. Cleaning is simple, and the instructions are really detailed.
absolutely unreal, saving heaps, delicious
my nan bought this for my mum for her birthday and it has been the best present ever for the whole family, we have not only made money back on but saved a tonne, and you can make a better coffee than most shops ! only problem is im addicted to coffee now...
Best Coffee Machine ever
This is the best machine I’ve used so far. Coffee made is great and frother is easy to clean as well. Just make sure you’ll clean everything after each use so you won’t be left with a weird smell. Drip tray can fill up quite quickly so check and empty it regularly.
Dead in TWO YEARS !!!
I really liked this machine. Made great coffee. The steam function is weak and needs improvement however. Overall I would have given this model 5 stars, but for it to be dead in 2 years is pathetic. Hence my 1 star review. Terrible!
Such a shame that appliances like this can't be made to last.
