It is good with this price
I am happy with this machine, I used to run a coffee shop, this machine make the coffee very similar to the shop one. It is cheap, I brought from Myers , it was around 300 dollars. When I brought it, I found target only sold for 260, it’s discontinued product. One thing, I would like to compalain about the temperature, my husband like drink coffee every morning, he always says the temperature is too low
Simplify your grinding
Upgraded from a "classic" grinder and the dosing on this one is fantastic.
Been using it for almost 2 years now and thanks to it everyone in the family can make perfect espresso shots as the dose is always right.
For the price and quality, it beats a lot of very expensive Italian/professional grinders.
This is perfect! Cant live without
Great Coffee for a mid level coffee drinker im new to coffee and love this machine easy and simple to use for great tasting coffee! would recommend. Easy to use and clean. Make sure you read jnstructions on how to descale and keep the water level up all the time.
Cafe quality coffee at home
This machine will pay for itself in the savings you will make by making a "take away" coffee from home. Easy to set up and use. Dual boiler function is great as you can heat your milk while the coffee is dispensing. We always get comments on the taste of our coffee. Choose a good quality organic coffee bean and you will be set!

With only a slight learning curve, the best value for money coffee machine
I would argue that this model outclasses all other Breville models, due to the fully manual nature of its operation. You have much more control of the entire process, and at this stage, human control is highly superior to the fully automated Brevilles. Furthermore, having the grinder and the coffee machine as a separate unit makes it easier to clean, and service, as you can send in one piece without the other (c.f. the Breville Oracle).
This machine really does make commercial grade coffee. It can brew at a full 9-bars of pressure - however I...
Best coffee machine for value
Great value home coffee machine. Excellent pressure and dual boiler too. Meaning I don’t have to wait a while before I can steam my milk. It makes consistent cup of good espresso, if you know what you’re doing. The grinder is ok, had a bit of issue in caibrating the burr, but very good value for money.
- BES920 (Dual Boiler)
The price of this machine which adjusts coffee pressure and flow time is excellent value. I have been using it twice a day for nearly two years, and it works flawlessly. Cleaning is easy with the tablets, and the pressure gauge is good guidance to grinding your coffee. Perfect coffee every time.
Had a Breville Dual Boiler coffee machine, and was looking for the Grinder. Initially compared several grinders but at last decided to purchase the BES 920 to go with the coffee machine. The grinder has various level of setting, and you can adjust according to your own preference. Would definitely recommend it!
Awesome and smart grinder
Do not look any further for a grinder. This will be the best buy you have made. I have used it for almost a year and cannot find fault in it at all. The smart option of remembering the grinder times for one or two shots ensure that you only ever adjust the grind size which makes a better shot. It is consistent in grinding coffee which is what you require.
A couple of years ago I treated myself to this Breville Smart Grinder BCG820 along with the Breville Dual Boiler BES920 after reading too many reviews and advice from Ozbargain - they've both been in daily use since and haven't missed a beat - one of my best ever purchases
I was spending so much money on coffees everyday so thought it would be a smarter idea to just buy my own coffee machine. After a lot of research, I decided on this one. I just turn it on when I woke up in morning, let it warm itself up and then make my coffee. It does take a littler longer than using a coffee machine that uses pods but it is still definitely worth getting one because the coffee is better and customisable to you. It's just like having a mini barista in your home :)
This was a great purchase for us. We got the machine and grinder and we love it. We had been using a delongi magnifica and the quality doesnt compare. The Breville was only half the price of the delonghi but makes 10 time better coffee. You cant get a better tasting coffee using the breville. We love it and highly recommend to all those that appreciate a good coffee.
Great machine. Makes cafe tasting coffee
Tastes better than any coffee machine coffee I've ever had. The steamer heats up milk very very quickly and it's very simple to get the hang of. Also easy to clean it has great functions letting you know it's ready for a clean automatically. With the grinder it's easier to make great coffee. We tried with ground beans aswell for convenience but the grinder is really so well suited to this coffee maker.
Perfect home espresso machine
Don't let the coffee snobs persuade you otherwise. This machine is more than enough for your coffee needs.
Easy to use. Quick setup. Looks nice.
The dual boiler function is helpful, because you don't have to wait for the temperature to adjust from using the steam wand to pulling a shot.
Very good for making cafe quality coffe at home. Highly customisable for coffe shot extraction time, milk amount, milk foam and milk tempareture. Easy to operate, has a clock to auto start in the morning. cleaning is simple as well, I would highly recommend the product if you want a cafe style entry level coffee machine
The Grinder works like a charm
The grinder does the job perfectly. It is easy to refill and easy to pull apart and clean if necessary. The settings are easy to work with which allows you to set the timer and the the finer/coarse settings as per your needs. Would highly recommend anyone looking at this as a add on to their coffee machine.
Good Smart Grinder
Awesome grinder I bought it approx ten months ago. together with BS920 from Harvey Norman. It was special offer.It does perfectly grinds coffee beans. You can adjust the grind amount Highly recommend purchasing with your coffee machine.
BS920 is also a good machine. My morning starts with a cafe style coffee.
Had this for 5 years and still going strong!
Makes great coffee, easy to use, a breeze to clean. I love it, paired with my grinder pro. I know there are better coffee machines out there but this one meets our needs completely. I like the manual type machines rather than the press a button for your coffee and this fits the bill. Would definitely recommend.
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!
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?
