    This machine has a big price tag, but seems easily worth it through the first month. My wife nor I have bought a single coffee since we plugged it in. Last time I made a plain coffee in our other machine I actually dumped it out because it just wasn’t the same. I think it pays itself off in a years time. Buy it, learn it, love it.

    We absolutely love this unit!! I was afraid it was going to be too complicated but they have really automated the steps well. We are having a blast experimenting and personalizing our own settings. I would definitely recommend this to people.

    Not user friendly. Too many options with no instructions. I would like to make a decent cup of coffee. I have made over a dozen and none were drinkable. I would be willing to learn but I would like to at least have a good cup of coffee while I am learning. Unless you have a great deal of time to learn this machine or already have the knowledge I would not recommend it. I am returning it

    I love our new espresso maker. I studied review after review and watch a ton of youtube reviews. I use it every single day. Makes great coffee drinks and because it's all automated you can't mess it up. It's pricey, but after having it for about a month I think it's worth the money. It's easy to clean and it looks beautiful on our countertop. It may not fit under your cabinets so make sure to measure. I even use the milk streamer when I make a regular pot of coffee just because I like the taste of the streamed milk better that half & half.

    Espresso, There is a Difference!!!

    We always had a regular coffee machine, after the last one died, we decided to go with an espresso machine, we checked several out, however, this one caught our eye with the touch screen and the simplicity of the machine. We were scared at first not knowing how to use an espresso machine. It was so easy, and we never had such fresh, awesome coffee, everyone loves it and it is quite simple and fast to use between cups. Frothing is simple as well, just hit the button...Our 9 year old daughter is our Barista it is so easy!! The Americano setting we can even make hot cocoa. We purchased an extra bean hopper to change over to decaf, but what we also do is just grind our decaf espresso beans and put in the filter holder, which works out just as well. We would definitely purchase this Breville again!!

    Wow! I love this machine, or should I call it an instrument? I was so hesitant on buying this for so long but after dropping loads of cash at Starbucks every week I figured it was time. This is my first espresso machine and it is phenomenal. I’ve had this unit for about 1-2 months now and I still look forward to using it everyday. This unit is so easy to use once you get the grind tuned in to your favorite coffee. It looks, feels, and works like a well made product. I wish I would have made this purchase years ago.

    Ok. I have waited for such a long time to make this purchase. I finally did after several reviews reading and YouTube reviews and i agree Breville nailed this espresso machine. It is easily put together, use and understand in making the perfect espresso (at least perfect to me) cup after cup after cup. I went from a frequent Starbucks customer to Starbucks who? Cleaning is easy and you have all the tools you need. Cons - should probably come with a dump bucket for the price and a few more water hardness test strips. Other it turning itself on, i dont see any issues with this espresso machine.

    I love this Expresso Machine. It does everything but tamp the coffee for you, but it does come with a tamper for you to use. This is my first Expresso machine and I like it so much I stopped going to Starbucks and Dunkin Doughnuts. I also stopped using my Keurig and regular coffee maker because this Expresso machine puts them all to shame. Breville always makes the best products and this one is no exception to that!

    Was easy to program your best recipe. We created a custom Mocha recipe that melts the chocolate every time and an americano with just the right amount of water. Very expensive, but feels like it is worth it.

    Good semi automatic Espresso machine

    After extensive research on Espresso machine at this price, this is one the best for features. it is much easy to use, if one get familiar with basics of Espresso making this machine will make one make decent drinks in few tries. with every espresso brewed one learn more about more variables and how to control them. machine was very easy to setup as display walks one through, i have watched quite a few youtube video so i was quite familiar what to expect. even though it is expensive but most Espresso machines are. the best feature on this machine is almost no wait between shots and froth as heat system is quick with in 3 seconds of turning on unit. Built grinder is very easy to use. I was debating between Pro and touch model. i want the auto froth feature and Touch screen is a bonus form me, it helps quite a bit communicating what going on during brew cycle. Froth temperature of 160 F is decent Warm for Latte and Cappuccino, some people think it should be high, most Baristas recommend 150-160 temp, brewed coffee is also should be 190-195F other wise it looses taste. I own Technivorm Moccamaster Coffee machine for Brewed coffee so Breville touch will be strictly used for Milk based Coffee. i owned Nespresso for a while, the pod coffee get very expensive if you use multiple cups every day. this machine will be so much cheaper and pays for it self with in a year if you compare with Nespresso or Starbucks. quality of froth and Espresso is much better than Nespresso. If you have good quality Grinder there is bambino machine for half the price. I got Best buy 2 year warranty for peace of mind i wish they would have offered 3 year warranty.

    I got my machine 1 month ago. I've had so many issues with it. - hot water is not hot! It's just lukewarm. my americanos come out at 145 F on average. I can just drink the whole glass at once because it's not hot. I tried warming everything up by running the machine once without coffee, but not a whole lot difference. The highest I ever got to was 150 F. - The automatic frothing (which is the whole reason I got this machine) is miserably broken. It only gives me a watery milk at the bottom, and lots of bubbles and foam over the top. None of that silky milk texture that you need in order to have a proper latte. Take a look at he photos, this is as good as the automatic frothing of the milk gets. - The group head is misplaced and a little too high, I have to fill my portafilter with 22 grams of coffee (rather than 18) to have a proper puck. My friend got the same machine 2 weeks after this, and he doesn't have these issues. His americano is at 170 degrees, milk is always silky, and pucks are filled with exactly 18 grams of coffee. I have contacted them, but I haven't felt the support that I was hoping for yet. We will be doing a video chat with the support to see if things can be fixed. I have a lot of Breville products and I considered them the best. But this experience has changed my mind and I think I'll have to switch to another brand.

    Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.

    Build quality seems great, step by step instructions on screen of how to set up machine. If you aren't familiar with grinding, tamping espresso this machine has many helpful tips, but in my opinion, is still not "easy" to use. The total screen interaction does put some limits on how to use the steaming features. Temperature is hot, but the way of the built, all the steam from the brewing or from the hot water spout fog up the screen. If relying on screen for next steps, which are required to begin next function you will find yourself needing to wipe the screen often to remove the moisture.
