Awesome coffee machine

Next best coffee machine for at home compared to barista quality.
Has the option for automatic milk froth with the steam wand or you can do it yourself.

The hardest part about this machine if you’ve never made barrister quality coffee would be getting used of tamping the coffee beans correctly. Once you have this down pat, you’re good to go.

Some cons are:
Drip tray is abit too small for my liking
No wheels underneath so can be abit heavy to move around on bench. These are just cosmetic issues however the quality and taste of coffee it produces I can’t fault. I use mine 3 times a day for cappuccinos and iced lattes Show details

Loved it. Until it was 6 weeks out of warranty and died

We loved this machine, then 6 weeks after the warranty expired we turned it on one day and it had died with an ER05. The closest repair centre is a 40 minute round trip, we live in a major capital city so this is a long way to go and massively inconvenient. To pay $1400 for an appliance to last ONE YEAR is a joke, and because I’ve read so many reviews saying the same thing this only deserves one star. Disappointing and won’t be buying another one. Show details

Milk temperature cuts out at 65 degrees

Hi

The machine does not display or heat milk temperatures over 65 degrees even when a higher value is selected. It always stops at 65 degrees regardless of what we program into the unit. If you set the milk to 70 it stops at 65. When we set it at 75 it stops at 65. Show details

Reasonable machine at this price point

I've had the machine for 3 years and so far not much to complain about. If you know how to grind and tamp the coffee it is reasonablly good although your technique needs to be consistent. The auto milk option works pretty well, certainly as good as anything I could do on my old manual breville although if I have one gripe it's a rubbish temp sensor for the milk frother that often doesn't read and cooks the milk until it's overflowing and curdling.

The built in grinder is still working well with plenty of adjustment of the inner and outer burrs.

The finish has held up well and we put the trays in the dishwasher weekly.

Overall this had been a decent home machine. Show details

It’s makes good coffee but this is the second time my coffee machine has had an issue with it and dosent work

Everything was working fine one day I went to make a shot of coffee it stopped brewing after 3 seconds
Then I tried the milk frother it stopped after 3 seconds again I took it back they fixed it under warranty but it’s happening again
I don’t see this machine lasting more then 2 years to be honest I’m spewing I actually really like the machine
It’s almost like it’s losing pressure somewhere, they wouldn’t tell my what the problem was when they fixed it.. Show details

Amazing ! Value for money

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. Show details

The perfect coffee

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. Show details

Brilliant Coffee Machine

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. Show details

Great machine, really impressed

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 . Show details
