Amazing ! Value for money

published

I have had this coffee machine for a year now so I feel it’s time to review it. So far have had no issues what do over. So easy to use and coffee taste amazing ! Definitely value for money at tough times like this day as store bought coffees cost a lot.

Purchased at Harvey Norman for $1,400.

The perfect coffee

published

I purchased this at the start of lockdown about 2 years ago and thought myself the art of picking and grinding beans. A lot of people don't realise how involved that can be. Once you have the understanding you will love this machine. Its consistently good, easy to clean and the milk is silky smooth every time.
The screen makes maintenance a breeze with step by step instructions anyone can do it. Its been faultless and we use it daily. The only problem is you will start to pick and choose which coffee shops you visit as you can often get a better cup at home.

Purchased at Harvey Norman Online for $1,500.

Brilliant Coffee Machine

published

I brought this machine last year. It is absolutely brilliant. You can choose several presetting coffee options or add your own choice. It has a built-in coffee grinder where you can select the size of the grind. The milk frother has an adjustable temperature setting, ideal for people like me who prefer their coffee piping hot. The water tank comes with a replaceable filter to take all the nasties out of the tap water. It's probably the best machine on the market today. Each cup is as good as the first one.

Great machine, really impressed.

published

NOTE ,it is really important that you read and understand the user manual 1st.
As my first couple of coffees were really bad .
Once you understand how the machine works you can adjust and fine tune it to suite your preferences. Also important to find your preferred Beans .
And now it makes coffees as good as any barista made , and I have had a lot.
Well Done Breville .

Inconsistent. Espresso shot is not good.

published

The machine makes beautiful milk, and can make a good cup of coffee but it has two major flaws.
It makes a very bad espresso shot, watery and not hot enough (even after trying all different settings and beans)
And.. it's inconsistent. You setup a new profile for a new bean, a few days later the shot is longer and more watery.

I owned one for 4 years, and had some great coffee out of it, but ended up selling it beacuse it was frustrating how much I had to tinker with it, just to keep it making a drinkable coffee, Too much mucking around.

Purchased at David Jones for $1,299.

Good product, support is helpful

published

Updated Review:
I purchased a Breville Barista Touch 2 months ago. I noticed some issues with heating and frothing. I contacted the support and after checking the issues over the video chat on two separate sessions, they swapped the machine for me. The replacement works great and doesn't have any of the issues that I experienced before. The coffee comes out nice and hot and the automatically frothed milk is silky and beautiful.
It's great to see that Breville does stand by its products and goes as far as providing a replacement if needed. Also the process of replacing the machine was seamless and easy.
I would recommend this product, you can purchase with ease of mind knowing that Breville has your back.

Machine stops after 3 seconds

published

We have had the machine for 2.5 years without any problems. All of a sudden it asked us to purge the machine, we did. Now it stops after 3 seconds whether it is brewing, frothing or cleaning/descaling. After descaling 6 times it started working again, but only for a couple of days now we’re back to it stopping after 3 seconds. Any suggestions…?

Purchased at Harvey Norman for $1,300.

Perfect coffee

published

It took some time to get our grind correct for beans but now is perfect. Super easy and quick with our programmed coffee settings. Cafe quality coffee. I was worried about cleaning but it is very simple. Can do one coffee at a time which is not a concern for us. No problems at all- highly recommended at all of our friends! Is worth the money to ensure the perfect brew.

The screen doesn't work just under 3 years old. Cant use any more.

published

The screen stopped working on and off about 6 months ago. Now I cant use it at all. Sometimes it works but then all of a sudden stops or just start making coffee while I'm not there. It took me a week to get through to the Breville customer service team. Literally calling every day and sitting on hold. I was told to just go to a service centre as it's not under warranty.

In my opinion, it's not worth spending $1500 on a coffee machine for 3 years. I would go with one without a touch screen and definitely not a Breville.

Update - two days later and two perfect flat whites. Absolutely as good as the ones I previously purchased from cafe baristas.

Hi,
I have set up 5 different coffee presets for each of the members in my family. It seems that all of the presets have to have the same grind time as each time as each time is added a preset, it changed all other presets to exactly the same time.
Am i doing something wrong?
