Summary: I got this machine new and never got to use it. It was a gift, all it does is make noise and vibrates my cup underneath that's about it. The water doesn't at all move, it pumps 4 times then stops. None of the buttons respond, nothing happens, what a drag.
Summary: I have had this Espresso Machine for 4 years now... and we are STILL going strong. I drink espressos 1-2x a day, 4-5 days a week. If you have a perfectly roasted and ground espresso bean, Breville does the rest of the work. You can set your consistency on single and double shots.
Summary: Love it, every morning during the weekdays and every morning during the weekend I I make my espresso for my guess and I and save tons of money because I no longer go to Starbucks for my Tall nonfat latte!
Summary: My wife and I bought the 800 series espresso maker in 2011 thinking that this unit is better than our beloved KRUPS espresso maker we got for our wedding. But after a little more than a year, it quit working on us. We called the customer service and they were very helpful.
