A very happy coffee lover, love this machine
I am a huge coffee lover, and was spending approx $1500 a year going to my local coffee place after my daily walk 5 times per week getting a daily latte. I was also using a pod machine at home. So for mothers day 2021, i received the Breville Barista Touch, and it has really made me a huge at home coffee fan. It is so easy to use, you can adjust the coffee grind to suit your taste, and that of anyone else your making coffee for. It is all a simple touch of a button. I get my perfect latte in minutes and its costing a lot less. The machine is a...investment piece, its normally not priced under $700, but considering it has a built in grinder I think its a great price. I would however not have invested in this if i was maybe a one a day or every few day drinker. My down side on the machine is something that is fixable for a extra $25 to $30 more. And that is the milk jug, the one that comes is a standard stainless steel one. I found that my coffee milk was just not as hot as i like. Doing some research I found that Breville do do a jug that tells you the temp of the milk. I think this should be included in the price, as i now can't live without it. Overall its a great machine, easy to use and makes a great latte. Also recommend checking out cashmere syrups, they have great flavours to add to your coffees.

Love the machine and the perfect coffee!
Lovely looking machine in the kitchen, looks well built and the black colour makes it stand out.
The range of coffees that it can make is impressive, although I am inclined to stick to double shot expresso and vary milk quantity. Consistency of grind, brew and milk although infinitely variable is always the same on what ever setting you choose. Great machine producing great coffee!

Right to the edge of not fit for purpose
To the industrial designers at Breville and to anyone thinking of buying the BES 880, which I did about 3 weeks ago and have been using daily, between 2 people making 4-5 cups a day. The great part of the machine is that it enables progressive recording and adjustment of the grind and brew for each new batch of beans which helps you get closer to that elusive really great cup of coffee.
I particularly like the milk frother which is the same as on the B. Creatista pod machine and the reason we bought the machine and not Barista or Pro. Preset t...

Have had this product for 2 years but after recommending and crowing about this product and then actually seeing the machine operating at two different households I have realized that my own machine is seriously defective. Coffee grounds are completely solid and therefore cannot tamp from the head, Have also wondered why on odd occasions that the head falls out of the grinding holder (it's because it has been faulty from day 1).

An excellent coffee machine for busy people who value good coffee. It grinds fresh beans and froths the milk easily. Milk is heated to your preferred temperature and it is easy to clean

Quality machine, easy to use
After previously owning two Delonghi coffee machines, I decided to upgrade to the Breville Barista Touch, and it is the best machine I have owned. Once dialled in, the machine produces a fantastic espresso, and the simplicity of the touchscreen and settings make it easy to use. The automatic milk wand is easily adjusted and produces silky micro-foam milk that I consider to be better than what is produced by most baristas at my local cafes.
The Breville Barista Touch is a simple, high-quality machine that is easy to use and maintain. I would highly recommend it to anyone considering purchasing a coffee machine.

Had machine for just under 12months and issues started happening with the steamer. Sent in for repairs, got it back and still not working, went back in to get fixed and same thing - issues started after 2 coffees were made. Sent it in for a third time and it took about 6weeks to get it back, had just about everything that could be replaced in it.
Have had it beck and was working great for about 4 months and now the same thing has happened again!
So not happy! Now out of warranty and just not worth the money or effort to get it fixed again if it only lasts a few months.
So not worth the $1300 I spent on it
So very disappointed

Breville has the WORST customer service ever
Bought the machine, loved it for a few months then it had a fault where it would randomly stop working.
Sent it for repairs, took weeks to get fixed. Get it back - same problem.
Send it back to Breville this time and they sit weeks with it (now going into months without my machine)
After chasing and chasing (while being polite and understanding) I finally get my machine sent back - to the wrong address!
Upon opening I have COCKROACHES inside the box, obviously from it sitting in their warehouse - I work with the hospitality industry and I know how to keep my machine clean.
Machine Keeps Malfunctioning
Have had my machine for under 8 months and to turn my machine on daily I have to pull it out from the electricity plug and put it back in... Grinder and Machine frother will automatically turn on and it keeps changing all of my coffee settings on me.. Seems to be problem after problem.. If I want it fixed, I also have to pay for packaging to allow Breville to pick it up from me and will be without a coffee machine for who knows how long whilst it is getting fixed.... just an overall horrible experience with this machine.

I love it!
I absolutely love my coffee and this machine definitely produces a good brew..... I received my machine yesterday, and I too have found that the machine does not turn back on once pressing it off unless I unplug it at the wall... This morning I thought I would try something different, once I’d made my coffee instead of pressing the button to turn it off, I just turned it off at the wall and then when using it I flicked the power on at the wall and press the on button and it turns on..no dramas. so I won’t be taking mine back to be replaced as this is a simple solution and a lot less hassle then taking it to be replaced... and let’s face it, turning it off at the wall while not In use saves power, so it’s definitely a win win.

Love It !
I'm very fussy when it comes to coffee. This machine is brilliant. Brews consistently beautiful coffee every time. Auto milk setting produces a sensational silky finish. We highly recommend this product. Thanks Breville.

Best Appliance purchase
After having a pod machine for over 10 years we decided to upgrade to the Breville Barista Touch and we wish we had done it sooner. Once you learn the basics of the grind and the brew setting that coffee is nothing short of exceptional. Best appliance purchase!

Intermittent issue with turning machine on
Bought a Breville Touch in February 2020. Great machine and love the coffee and touch screen function. However over last couple of months the machine fails turn to power on sometimes. Disappointing as it’s a $1300 machine.

Best money I’ve ever spent!!!
This coffee machine gets me excited to wake up every morning. It is honestly the highlight of my day, makes a beautiful coffee perfect frothed milk easy to use easy to clean I can’t recommend it enough. You can change the coffee to how you like it and save to your name you will not regret it

Could not get the grind correct on 3 different bags of beans
After being on the phone 4 times to breville they could not help me get the correct grind or brew , I was advised by the last consultant that she would forward my concern onto a technician that should be able to help me as she was stuck ! No return call ! After spending $90 on beans and to no great result I was fed up , this machine isn’t easy and I have waisted a lot of time , energy and money on beans for nothing . The consultant recommended sending me out a bag af beans that breville use ? I’m not paying out this much money to maybe getting the grind settings correct on breville used beans so I took it back to Harvey Norman’s and got a refund ! Majorly disappointed

Questions & Answers
HI... i have had my touch for around 9 months now and i love it the only thing is now the temperature sensor isnt working so if im not watching the milk it boils over everytime.. can this be replaced or should i contact the store where i got it from??
Everytime I make a second coffee right after the other, the portafilter burst off half way during its brew and makes a complete mess. Anyone have any ideas?
Does the black tend to scratch/show wear and tear?
