Summary: Ok... So I live in Los Angeles.. I frequent places like urth cafe and Intelligencia.. I definitely appreciate a good latte! I researched espresso machines for 2 months... Like many, I thought about getting a good burr grinder and decent espresso machine or this.. So happy I got the barista express!
Breville's new service rip-off. Beware - and stay away!
Farshaw Publishing Consignment, Amazon
7 September 2015
Summary: BEWARE! Breville has recently ended its relationships with authorized local service and repair facilities and now does all repairs itself from a location in (I think) California. The minimum charge for a repair is $235, and the repair is guaranteed for only six months.

Summary: This is a fantastic machine. Other more expensive models may produce better espressos if you're really picky, but for a regular user like myself, the end-result here does very nicely. The big issue is every day practicality.
need $1000+ machine to marginally(neglectable) beat the shots from this machine.

Summary: Need $1000+ machine to marginally (neglectable) beat the shots from this machine. I don't even know if you can consider a beat. Is more about consistency instead of taste. This machine can achieve the temp and the pressure to pull perfect shots without problem.
Summary: After my Siemens full automatic served me for lots of years I wanted to go back to a more manual system that would give me more control over the process and give me the possibillity to make latte art. This machine does it all and I love it.

Summary: I bought this machine 2 years ago and it has been awesome. Sadly the shut off mechanism stopped working recently. I called Breville to get troubleshooting and/or service. Turns out the machine needs to be sent in for service. The cost to repair was half of the price of a new one.

Summary: I visited my twin brother in February of this year and he had one of these machines and it made the best espresso and cappuccino's I have ever had for a home espresso machine. It was awesome!!!
Summary: I did a lot of research before deciding on which machine to purchase and this one kept popping back up in different places. I actually found a youtube video that showed someone using the machine and was sold.
If you have distractions in the morning, buy this! (but not online)

Summary: I love it and thought Id share why I personally bought it. 1. I can walk away for everything except frothing milk! I have three little kids so I OFTEN overflowed my $200 machine because it was running, I stepped away for a "second" to grab something for them and turned back and oops!
