Cafe style coffee at home or the office!
After our $400 coffee machine died we decided to spend the bit extra and pick up one of these on special from Harvey Norman and WOW the difference in coffee is outstanding, we make coffee for all our staff and clients and have had only good feedback.
The free 3 months of coffee was just an added bonus!
We're really pleased with this machine. I did a bit of research before purchasing. The coffee is superb cafe quality and the machine is just so incredibly easy to use and clean. Two lattes takes approx 4 mins from switching the machine on to finishing making the coffee! It's now hard to have coffees out as this machine makes the best coffee all the time!
Great coffee machine. It's the best on the market for an all manual machine. Awesome grinder, hardly any overspray of coffee when grinding. Highly recommended purchasing! Will not be disappointed.
Great tasting coffee. Also love how it tells me it needs to be descaled. Runs very quitely.
Has a wheel to help move the machine which is great.
Don’t ignore ‘De-scale!’
I have had this machine 12 months now. It had been So good! My ‘drink coffee in a café’ bill has been cut to about 10%! This machine has paid for itself more than twice. Add to that, the ability to serve your visitors a cup of coffee you can be proud of.
Last week the ‘De-scale’ alert showed up on the display during warm up time. The procedure for rescaling is straightforward, but, once I exited the program, the alert was still there. The water in this area is bickle-hard, and after a half dozen attempts, the alerts was still there.
Both products work very well. Its great that you can froth the milk and that it pours coffee at the same time. Grinder grinds well ..you need to adjust it every time you use a different coffee. Easy to clean. Has a "clean me now" icon which is helpful to tell you when you need to insert a tablet in it to clean. Very happy with product.
Cafe coffee at home
This machine is easy to use, easy to clean and stands head and shoulders above other home coffee machines. The taste of the coffee it makes at home is on par with that of any cafe, and the milk texture it makes is silky and smooth. I would recommend this machine to any aspiring barrister or anyone who wants the taste of coffee from a cafe in their house.

Making really good coffee
Purchased breville dynamic duo pro from myer couple days ago. It comes with bes920 machine and smart grinder pro. We got the cranberry colour and they look lovely and cute.
Hubby just grabbed a bag of vittoria oro 500g bean from coles to try out. We had a really hard time at the beinging, fast run like pouring, though tried the finest setting (we though) and tampered very firmly (got muscle ache the next day XD). After using almost 500g beans we stopped and decided to give breville a call in the next morning.
Got told from breville...we had to use freshly roasted bean with roasted date to get a good extraction. Beans from supermarket are always old and can be more than 8 months old after being roasted. It caused our coffee made was all under extraction. The reason to buy these machines is to save money in long run from takeaway coffee and the lovely red colour would look great on our buffet table. However, being restricted to buy much dearer beans ($15/250g) at all time, it may not save much at the end.... We then looked up in the internet and found we were not the only ppl having under extraction coffee from vittoria beans. The good thing is breville has upgraded the smart grinder. We can extend the grind size from altering it from the burr for the smart grinder pro, without having shim installed. Changed the burr setting to 5 and 1 on display, it gave us a perfect extraction from vittoria bean using single basket (the setting still gives under extraction when using Double basket, i believe we need to go finer for it). Anyway, we are happy tht we dun need get expensive beans all the time XD. Also, we are so impressed with the milk frothing, very consistant and silky. Never fails!!

Amazing - life changing buy
I bought this almost 2 years ago and it is fantastic. Great coffee, good steaming. Very robust, I have the grinder too, and both have changed my life. The only downside is now when I go to a coffee shop, what I thought was a good cup is now average!
Great at what it does
The coffee machine does a great job at grinding the coffee to make it nice and smooth. It is really helpful having the water tank at the front because I have things on top of it and it's hard to reach the back. The coffee is also good and I feel like a real barista and there is nothing better now than making coffee every morning.

Excellent coffee machine
An awesome coffee machine. Lots of little things they've done right, which makes using it a dream. Front filling water tank is great if you've got cupboards above, storage for the tamper and tools make sure it always looks neat and tidy. Ow and it makes really good coffee when you've got nice fresh beans.
Love coffee at home in the morning!!
This coffee machine is totally meet my expectation. Really like to start my day with a cup of coffee with this machine. I purchased these two items at the end of financial year sale with a pretty good price. The best thing is I can have coffee at home which tastes as good as the restaurant one!
I got the two items as a deal together the coffee produced is amazing..the machine is my best friend. Grinder is great! Been using it non stop since I got it. I clean regularly and make sure that the filters are also replaced..bought a stock of filters to last me around 5 years...Which reminds me..Time for coffee..Was looking for the grinder to buy separately for my daughter for Christmas but unable to find anywhere. Purchased it online.
Your best friend in the morning
As a coffee enthusiast, I was hesitant to buy a regular consumer branded coffee machine for fear of poor coffee quality. I have been proven wrong! I've had this machine for 3 years and it has never failed me! It extracts coffee to perfect crema; and steams velvety smooth milk. Highly recommended,
Best way to start the day
This coffee machine can do it all. Takes a few coffees to have it properly primed, but even those are pretty good. (Takes some commercial machines in excess of 20 or so to get there so not really a con) No problems doing latte art, short blacks or even over a scoop of vanilla icecream for the best affagato - YUM!
Good automatic features, easy to clean and I like the automatic reminder to clean the machine once I have made a certain number of coffees. I have had the machine for over 5 years now without any problems, and it also comes with me on...
Excellent Coffee machine, love it!
this is the coffee machine you can compare to the commercial coffee in shopping center, although this is a little over, but the taste and texture of the coffee is A1 level.
brought from Harvey Norman, and used for 3 months, love it, although you need time to learn how to make a perfect coffee by this kind of manual machine (if you are newbie of coffee), but it worthy to spend some time on it, and the milk steamer is fantastic, easy and quick to make the perfect steam milk for Latte or Cappa.
All in one word, this machine is recommended if you are a coffee lover.
Excellent coffee machine
Great coffee machine. Automatic start function is great so that the machine is ready to fire as soon as I get up in the morning. The steam wand is very powerful and has the ability to froth milk in about 40 seconds. The only negative is that the single cup filter is slightly too small for my liking.
You can count on the perfect grind!
Picked this up on clearance for a great price. The unit itself is quite bulky and takes up a fair amount of bench space but it does the job perfectly. Good adjustable grind settings - espresso and plunger style work well - and easy to clean. Sometimes there is a delay between turning on and the LED light coming on but otherwise it's reliable.

Awesome coffee machine
This is a great machine. After using a lower model Sunbeam for the past few years, I upgraded to the Breville Dual Boiler and boy am I impressed. It makes great tasting coffee as long as you maintain the Group Head and machine regularly. The steam wand is strong and makes steaming milk a breeze. Careful as it gets insanely hot though. It takes a while to heat up when first switched on too, so be sure to switch it on a couple of mins before use. Highly recommend for cafe quality coffee at home. It's not the cheapest however, and so you would expect such results. It doesn't disappoint.
Great espresso machine!
l love my morning coffee, and this machine never lets me down. The double boiler consumes a fair amount of bench space, however my 920 has definitely earned it's place in our kitchen! Highly recommended for anyone who appreciates good coffee and doesn't mind a little bit of a learning curve. If you love pod machines this is probably not for you.

Great coffee machine!
Got it during the EOFY sales where its on clearance as I understand that the model will be discontinued. Despite it, this is still a great coffee machine that produces great coffee!
It has separate boilers for the steamer and the coffee and it's easy to use. Haven't encountered any issues as yet but it works great with the accompanied smart grinder.
Questions & Answers
I have a BSS920 about 3 years old and am having a problem with descaling. Have descaled previously with no problems.
Following the manual instructions I empty the boilers and next step is to begin Descale, press 1 cup button to begin to descale and figures 20 (for seconds) show in screen) and press 1cup button. However nothing appears in the screen and nothing happens.
Anyone have a solution?
Breville should have a solution
I complete a descale on my BES920 and the Descale Message remains on. Has been occuring for last 18 months or so. I descale every 2 to 3 months but no change
Hey Paul, apologies if you've tried this but maybe reset your hardness setting. With machine off, hold down 1 cup button and turn on. reset should appear on display, hit menu to select and then set your hardness.
Machine only heating to 72° then hovers around that temperature, have checked that the setting is still at 93° , tried unplugging for 60 minutes (as says somewhere in manual) .
Obviously can’t make a coffee at this temperature.
Any ideas please?
