Balanced flavors start with an even extraction using low pressure pre-infusion just like a commercial machine. A great tasting espresso or cappuccino is about the right balance of sweetness, acidity and bitterness. The Duo-Temp™ Pro provides you withthird wave specialty taste at home.
Low pressure pre-infusion helps ensure all the flavors are drawn out evenly during the extraction for a balanced tasting cup.
High power 1600W element delivers sufficient steam to create micro-foam, enhancing flavor & enabling you to produce latte art.
Our machines let you know when they need a little upkeep. Cleaning and Drip Tray alerts make routine maintenance low-maintenance.
Automatically purging the heat system after steaming ensures your next espresso is extracted at the right temperature.

I am obsessed with this little beauty! I’ve used a little Krups espresso machine for years because I had it ... decided to upgrade and bought a DeLonghi machine. I returned it the very next day. Did a little research and found that the ONLY espresso machine option is a Breville. Just wow. It exceeds my expectations every morning. So easy to use (had a small learning curve, but followed the instructions to a T) that I find myself making a 2nd cup mid-day and a decaf at night. I feel like a real barista!
This machine produces some of the best espresso shots I have ever had. I use the Trung Nguyen premium blend, and I get the perfect cup every time. This machine is easy to maintain and clean. I descale about once a week, run a cleaning cycle after each shot, and wipe down the o ring/machine daily. It is important to turn the unit off as soon as you are done pulling a shot as I have heard it will extent the life of the logic board. The unit is heavy, but this is not a bad thing, it is well made. I like how the accessories store nicely within the unit. and filling the water tank is easy peasy. Hope this review helps! Cheers!
This is my first espresso machine. I think it’s a great entry level machine as you get the experience to learn about tamping, dosing, timing, etc., that you don’t get with an automatic or pod machine. At first, I was using the traditional filter basket with fine ground beans and getting mixed results. After re-reading the instruction book, I found that the filter basket (with coffee cups on it) designed for “any” grind of coffee was better for me as a beginner. Simply slightly overfill the basket, level it off with your finger or a straight edge, press straight down with the tamp, and pull for 30 sec. Perfect cup, and hot enough too, if you preheat portafilter, basket, mug and milk.
have this for 2 months now. I make better espresso for myself than the starbuck drive-through I have been going through for many years! I chose this machine after much agonizing research, very well made just feels durable. surprisingly powerful and does a cracker-jack job. The milk foamer is amazing and bloody hot as well. It produces perfect cremma so dont worry about that. I got this model because I did not want to pay for the extra bells and whistles and I am perfectly happy with this. Also a couple decades ago I was a barista myself. If you buy Braville I don't think you will be disappointed.
Once I have had several less expensive machines and they didn't standup to daily use. Every morning with this machine I make 2 lattes and most often several large cups of coffee during the day. I especially appreciate the high pressure from the steam wand that makes it easy for me to froth non-fat milk for the lattes. I am pretty sure that the water filter in the tank is keeping impurities in the water from clogging the pump. My only problem is when my wife turns the machine off she doesn't turn the selector knob to the idle position. When the machine cools down with the knob in the extract position the knob becomes hard to turn. Solution? (I now make all the coffee and she doesn't touch the machine!)
I was given this machine for Christmas. Its awesome. It warms up in 20 seconds and pulls delicious espresso shots. It did take me a few weeks to get the right dosage of coffee, grind size, and tamping pressure. The double wall portafilter delivers excellent results even if you havent dialed in your grinder perfectly, or if you are using pre-ground coffee.
In order to get the most of this machine, you need to invest in a quality espresso grinder. The grinder is key. If you are using an inexpensive grinder, you wont get good results. I spent more on the grinder than the espresso machine!
