Great Machine

reeldragon, Ebay

  • Summary: this is my first espresso machine and I wanted a good one, not a consumer toy. In general it performs as described, well and with accuracy. the pressure gauge is flawed on mine with the needle starting at 6 bar instead of zero, but it does function and is very useful. I will need to have the gauge replaced, so quality control at breville may not be ideal! but otherwise the machine is great.

  • Summary: After much research I decided to buy the Breville BES900XL it was a little more money than the Italian machines I was looking at, but after using it for the last few days I am convinced I made the right decision. It makes the best tasting espresso I have ever had anywhere. The learning curve was two pucks in the garbage because I was grinding the beans too fine, the third was just a little too fine, dialed it back one notch and hit the 9 bar mark.

  • Summary: Excellent machine for novice and expert. Has good automated controls for the less experienced but has great electronic inputs to control every aspect of espresso making. The only gripe I have is that the water resevoir is a too small.

A sincere solution for the professional at-home coffee artist

  • Summary: Having purchased my first cappucino machine some 30-odd years ago in Sardegna, I have some SERIOUS time with various Electra,La Pavoni and other machines...believe me, I like the pure pump machines! This machine, for a serious "at-homer" coffee perfectionist, is a Grand Slam!!! The steamer is killer! The water capacity is grand, the sliding spill-tray easy to clean, the filler takes the best you can pour without slop, great design...

Nice Entry Prosumer Espresso Machine

Jay, ABT Electronics
18 January 2013
  • Summary: With performance that rivals those machines costing as much as $1500-$2000 at sometimes below $1000, you really can't go wrong with this machine. Built-in PID allows great temperature stability, the ability to adjust temperature at 1F interval, and the OPV that regulates the pressure that goes over 9 bar makes it very easy to reproduce consistent espresso pulling results.
  • Pros: Consistency, Dual Boiler, Nice Microfoam, Pid, Precise Temp Control, Sleek Modern Look, Temperature Adjustability
  • Cons: 26l Reservoir Too Small, Exterior Durability, Opv Made Of Plastic, Steam Not As Powerful, Unable To Self Descale, Water Reservoir Too Small

  • Summary: The modern world of espresso has brought all kinds of variables into our control. This machine gives you control over every variable you want, and more. Everything from brew temp, brew volume, pre-infusion variables are yours for the taking. Try your lighter roasts at higher temps, lower temps for the darker roasts. You might just find a combo you love from a bean you thought you did not.
