  • Excerpt: Overall we would highly recommend this espresso machine. We have had it for a couple of months and it has worked perfectly. It took a couple of lattes to get it exactly how we like it. We just hope that this machine will last many years.

Great Value Great Price

  • Conclusion: "I have had my machine for about a year and I can say I am truly happy with the purchase. Given I have had the pleasure of working with 30k machines in the industry, I was worried this machine would not live up to my standards. If using high quality, fresh espresso that isn't too oily, this machine produces a great shot with decent creme. The foaming ability is great for what you pay for.

  • Excerpt: Great Product overall, looks beautiful on my counter top and except for maybe not heating water as much as I would usually want it to, it works flawlessly.

  • Conclusion: "After playing around with this for the past month I can truly say I am very happy with this machine. It took a few times before I discovered the perfect grind and dose amount, but once I got it the results were amazing. You do have to change it up a bit when you are using different coffee beans, but once you master the settings your in for a real treat.

Poor quality

  • Conclusion: "I had this product for less than a year. When it was new, the machine worked great and produced great tasting coffee. After some time I stopped produce an much steam during frothing and a lot less pressure for extraction. Today it won't grind my coffee beans. Sounds like a broken internal gear. I'm not sold on their long term durability or quality. Seems like a throw away machine. Breville.

  • Conclusion: "I have been a member of a couple coffee forums for over two years. I learned LOTS from reading those forums even though they focus on set ups that run well in excess of $1,500. I waffled around from machine to machine trying to set my sights on one. They were always too expensive. The Barista Express is 1/3 the cost of a middle of the road machine from other vendors. I have been using the Barista Express for three months. It does a GREAT job!

  • Conclusion: "This Barista Express is the best. I am so happy with it. I can make the best lattes in no time and the best part is that it is really easy to use and clean. I bought it a month ago and every time I am drinking my coffee I am happier with my purchase. Since I bought it I have not spend a penny in any coffee place.

  • Summary: Breville BES860XL Nice unit, presentable. Expected to to cream the coffee better after all the adjustments. over all it works well. Grinder need to grind the coffee beans finer in order to make a nice cream on top.

Quality product and well made & designed!

  • Summary: Excellent machine! We are enjoying the best coffee we've ever had in our office. A little steep on the learning curve, but worth the effort to get these results. So far it seems to be well-built, nice materials and overall a solid product. We'll see how it holds up over time. Stay tuned!
