Super happy with this product purchasw. My previous machine was consistently burning the coffee and was noisy and difficult to operate. This machine has been fantastic, providing consistently perfect brews.

Could. Not. Be. Happier.

published

I bought a factory refurbished model to save $150.00 four months ago. Used it nearly every day since, and I could not be happier. Beautiful coffee, extremely easy to use and maintain. The amount of money I have saved on coffee with this thing...

Tip: If the needle is not indicating perfect espresso range, add more coffee to the silver thing so that it has a little resistance when you attach it to the machine.

Purchased in September 2019 at eBay for $500.00.

This coffee machine makes a perfect cappuccino, etc everytime.
Easy to use. If you need help go to YOUTUBE and they can show you how to use this awesome machine.
Buying on Online made it a lot easier as well. I bought it on line and picked it up at the store (Bankstown) It was waiting for me. Thank you

Great machine but customer service lacking

published

I love this machine! I bought it last week for my workplace and great so far! This is why I have given high scores for Build Quality, Ease of Use etc. I have however had a lot of trouble claiming the new offer of 2 months of free coffee beans through Breville. It is like it is made deliberately difficult. First an invoice of sale wasn't good enough, then proof of payment on our system. Now I am being told I have to get a receipt from Bing Lee with my name on it and not my company who paid for it. There is no mention in the terms and conditions about a company not being made the offer. It has really tainted my whole view of Breville who I previously held in high regard. I will keep trying but it has been a letdown.

Used everyday!

published

We use this everyday... The ease of use is great. The grinder works well and the creama gauge ensure the the best coffee output. Good size unit that compliments your benchtop. I'd recommend this for the novice barista plus no more wasteful disposable cups... Too many home coffees now

This machine works hard in my house and has lasted well, Breville customer service is excellent and I would not buy any other machine. The inbuilt grinder is fantastic, accessories are easy to source.

Perfect for frothing like at the coffee shops

published

I drink a white coffee once a day so I was looking at Breville's coffee machines with frother and decided to try this one.

Very flexible on the grind size and adjustments can be made to get the right amount of ML for the shots.

The frother is very good at making flat whites / cappachino's etc.

Very high quality product and would recommend

nice and solid

published

Sort of makes you wonder how many of these "home espresso " machines are out there in a similar state/condition still waiting to be hung on the "tree" or thrown on the "bay" eh?
Unfortunately, most of these consumers are not aware nor informed by the big store floor salespersons, of what "(regular) maintenance" and care, is necessary to get long term drinkable results from ANY machine.
I don't know anything about Breville espresso machines, so can't advise where else to "clean" apart from wherever you can access.
It's comparatively easy to use and keep clean, plus it has an attractive stainless-steel design. It also has a built-in burr grinder for hassle-free coffee ground dosing.

Best coffee

published

I have been using this machine for a couple of weeks. It took a few days to tweak the settings (I felt very discouraged at this stage). There are some excellent tutorials on YouTube. It makes the best flat white I have ever had. I love it.

Absolutely love it.

published

Temperature is great when making coffee. The machine is great, its sometimes hard to find the exact grind amount to get it in the perfect level especially when changing beans all the time. It takes about 5-10 seconds for the milk steamer to start after brewing the coffee but other than that its fanastic- especially at sale price

Great machine for coffee lovers!

published

To feel real taste of coffee, we need right seeds, right skills and right tools. Here Breville Barista Express is the right tool to grind, extract and frost perfect coffee. All in one machine, this also helps us to gain skills to make our own coffee.
Maintenance is not that hard. Really good value for money.
Their customer service is excellent.

Great Performer

published

This is the first espresso machine Ive owned after using an Aeropress for years. With quality beans and a little practice, I consistently get better results than at most cafes (although not the better ones).

Two very minor gripes. The pressure gauge is useless. It makes the machine look pro, but is best ignored. The CLEAN ME light on my machine wont turn off even after escaping and multiple cleaning cycles. But these are neither here nor there.

I have had the machine 6 months and we have three keen coffee-drinkers in the house. It has not missed a beat.

Questions & Answers

Frequently Asked Questions about Breville Barista Express

How do I enable the cleaning function on the Breville Barista Express?

If the “clean me” light is illuminated on your Barista Express, turn off your machine, and hold down three buttons - both the one cup & two cup buttons, and the Start button. While holding these buttons down, turn on your unit, and it will start the cleaning process.

What do I do if I am having issues with the taste/volume of my shot from the Breville Barista Express?

As a manual machine, the output from your Barista Express will come from your technique. Breville recommends to refer to the Extraction Guide in your manual, as this has pointers for many typical extraction issues, including shot quantity and bitterness.
