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.
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.
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!
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.
Conclusion: "After years of using an old Starbucks Barista machine that I thought was decent, I got this and am simply wowed. Living in LA, I go to many wonderful coffee places (Urth, Intelligentsia, Handsome, etc). I always thought it was their amazing coffee roasting and their gazillion dollar machines that made their drinks so tasty. But with this gizmo mine are every bit as good as theirs now (of course, using the great roasted beans bought from these places...).
