Had this machine for a few months now and we are really impressed with the quality of coffee and the machine , robust and user friendly couldn't live without it . Steam great too . We bought the breville bean grinder too and grind fresh everytime makes all the difference .
An astounding machine, Breville have done the unthinkable, an enthusiast home espresso machine that can compete with the Rancilio Silvia but at less than half the price!A built in PID, a pre infusion system, an auto purge, all stainless steel thermo block/thermo coil, a rotating steam wand, and packed with little features that the home barista will love, this is the new benchmark for home machines. Best matched with the Breville 'smartgrinder'
Great coffee machine, if only I could get a part. Useless without milk wand/frother for me. I've repeatedly rang our local spare parts store and have emailed breville, but no luck. I loved my coffee machine until my daughter accidentally threw away the part that screws onto the end of the milk wand.
This BES840 machine is so great and easy to use and makes great latte on the first spot umm beautiful taste
Great machine, love the ease of it. Always had manual machines but this is so quick to make a coffee and easy to clean. Love the built in milk frother too.
