Love the Barista Express

  • Conclusion: "I have had an older model of this for about 5 years now and I could not be more pleased. Has worked perfectly without missing a beat. I use mine about 3-4 days a week making 2 drinks a day sometimes 3. It makes wonderful espresso and beautiful froth. If I have to replace it, I will purchase the same one.

Love this espresso maker!

  • Conclusion: "I absolutely LOVE my Breville BES870... it makes a nice, hot, "fluffy" latte every time. The burr grinder is wonderful, and I especially love that it grinds just as much as I want with the press of a button (i.e. pusing the portafilter in to turn it off and on). Also, my service from Breville was exceptional. Thank you, Breville!!

Fantastic Product

  • Conclusion: "After 10 years with a Francis Francis X5 which I typically used with Illy ESE pods, my little blue machine sadly passed away. I loved it so. It made a good espressos for me every morning. RIP little guy. However, after replacing it with the Barista Express, I now realize how inferior my espressos have been for the past decade. Yes, I've had many a great espresso at coffee shops, so it's not like I didn't know what great espresso tastes like.

Great Expresso from a Great Machine

brevilleusa.com
12 May 2014
  • Conclusion: "I received the BES870XL for a Christmas present in 2013. I was really excited, but when I tried the machine, it didn't work. I'm a coffee snob, and have had various models over the years, I know how to run an expresso machine, but I couldn't get the pressure gauge to function. I tried changing the grind, the tamping pressure, the amount of grounds, but nothing fixed the problem, so I exchanged the machine.

Almost a year - Follow Up

12 May 2014
  • Conclusion: "My last review was early on in owning this product. At that time I loved it. It's been almost a year now. I use the machine 4 days out of 7. When I use it I'll make two drinks twice that day. The machine has functioned flawlessly!. No issues, problems, or complaints. I still love it! Should it ever die I will try to fix it or replace it with the SAME model. There really is one issue. My latte art stinks, but that ones on me.

Simple Perfection

12 May 2014
  • Conclusion: "The machine is simple perfection. Easy to use and many individual adjustments make it a joy to play barista now that I have retired from that position at THE famous national coffeehouse. Partnering the unit with amazing espresso bean products has reignited my passion in producing and consuming fine lattes and cappuccinos for myself, my wife who surprised me with this machine, and my friends.

Exceeded Expectations

12 May 2014
  • Conclusion: "Don't have much to add beyond what has already been said by the other five-star reviews. I really wanted a fully automatic machine for many years but the cost and maintenance held me back from buying one. I decided to try the 870XL based on reviews and after about four months of use, I'm very happy with it. It's fun to use because of the control I have over the various drink types and it is amazingly easy to clean.

  • Conclusion: "I am very pleased with the ease of operation and the flexibility the programming adds. The machine heats up quickly, its easy to clean and makes the best espresso. I like the way the grind and amount of dosage is easily adjusted. The water tank is easy to fill and has a large capacity. The steam wand is maneuverable and easy to clean. This is our third Brevile appliance and every one of them works to perfection. The espresso machine is a superb value!

Very Happy W/Barista Express

9 May 2014
  • Conclusion: " Have had this machine for over a year and use it at least once a day and often several times a day. It is dependable, easy to use and produces a fine coffee. Particularly like the fact that many parts are replaceable should the need arise. There was a short learning period to get the amount of coffee and fineness of grind right. Once that was accomplished the machine always produces a terrific drink!
