Rated 5 out of 5 by Abby from Espresso Lovers Dream Had my eye on this machine for quite some time. I've owned it now for just over a year. Well worth the investment! It has paid for itself three times over by now with the time and money I save not having to stop for coffee on the way to work. Easy to use! Love this machine!Date published: 2019-02-19Rated 4 out of 5 by Britt from Overall a great purchase I bought this espresso machine 6 months ago. It has worked great so far. My only concern is that the filters sometimes get stuck and I have to pull them out by hand. I was frustrated that it would not froth milk, but I realized that I was doing it wrong after I googled it, so now it’s good.Date published: 2019-01-31Rated 1 out of 5 by Kitchen Guy from Keep looking Please note, I have been brewing home espresso since ‘99. I wanted to upgrade to something beyond the “basic” home espresso machine. After extensive research, I choose the Barista Express. The unit arrived and the hot water spout didn’t work right out of the box; send it back for replacement. New machine worked fine and made wonderful drinks with really great frothed milk. Over summer, I made iced lattes and had no use for the steam wand but when I wanted to use it in late summer, it wouldn’t froth milk. I cleaned it with Durgol and twice with the recommended water/vinegar mixture; still didn’t work. Sent into Breville for a service and when I received the machine back, still wouldn’t froth milk plus the hot water spout now dribbles water when using the wand. Contacted Breville and no response after two weeks. Barista Express...a very expensive mistake. Keep looking.Date published: 2019-01-08Rated 1 out of 5 by Alex from Horrible!!!!! Save yourself!! I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband and it was nothing but a disappointment. I’ve had to return this product twice in the two weeks since Christmas. We plugged it in the first time and no water pumped through at all. Exchanged it for a new one and it worked for a week before the heat pump stopped working. Produced bitter, underextracted espresso. We realized the heat wasn’t working when we tried to froth milk and only got a loud noise and no steam. Then tried to make another cup of espresso and it came out cold. Later that day, it decided to heat to lukewarm. Worked briefly the next day. Following day, no heat again. It will be going back to the store again tomorrow. This has been the most frustrating product I have ever purchased. Sad I wasted good beans on this. Breville should reimburse me for all my coffee and time spent on this junk.Date published: 2019-01-07Rated 3 out of 5 by Vern from Excellent Espresso Maker but Technical Issues. I would have given this unit a strong 4, but I have some annoying issues with it. 1. The grounded coffee does not "land" in the middle of the filter, it is off-centre towards the back of the Portafilter. About 5% falls outside the filter. 2. When I try to remove the Portafilter, the (2 cup filter) cup gets stuck in the unit so that I have to remove it by hand or a tool since it is hot if I want to make another espresso. An older Breville unit I had did not have this problem. I have had this unit about 3 months. 3. Now I have to adjust the time or grind size to get the pressure up. Perhaps the grinder is already worn out? BTW this unit is only used once a day and by only one (1) person.Date published: 2018-12-19Rated 4 out of 5 by Thefile from Does a nice job I like this machine, I used it for 6 months and it worked perfect, I cleaned it including the group head after every use. Because of stomach problems I decided to stop the coffee for a while. I descaled and cleaned it according to the manual before I stopped using it. After about one year I decided to go back, I filled with water, set it up for 2 cups turned it on and all I got was a buzz. Forgetting how long I owned it, I should have got more then 6 months of use out of it. It cost $267.00 to send it to Breville for repair. But I still like it so 4 stars. I will say one thing, my first express machine was a Krupp, used it for 6 years without a glitch.Date published: 2018-08-08Rated 5 out of 5 by coffee snob from Best espresso/cappuccino maker Used every Italian made espresso/cappuccino maker since 1988 and this one is the BEST! No need to take days to get a "perfect" cup...the first 2 cups of cappuccino I made were GREAT. Easy to use and frothing is thick...no waste and no mess. LOVE IT and the price.Date published: 2018-01-05Rated 4 out of 5 by Reggie from Nice Manual Machine I wanted the Breville Oracle Touch Espresso Machine, but the 18 inches was too high for my kitchen cabinets. So I bought this one even though it is manual. It fits nicely under my kitchen cabinets. It has been working good, I need some practice on warming the milk. It does take time to clean after each use, so I only use it in the evenings when I have more time. As far as manual espresso machines this is the best one I could find. I love the bean hopper that grounds my beans for each use.Date published: 2017-10-05
Does the breville barista machine use pre ground espresso? Such as lavazza?Hi Jec2019, The Breville Barista can be used with pre-ground espresso by scooping the espresso into the portafilter and tamping using the tamper included. However, we recommend using the built-in grinder to grind whole bean espresso right before brewing to ensure the best extraction and flavor. You cannot store the pre-ground espresso in the bean hopper, it must be whole beans only.Date published: 2019-02-27
Does this machine simultaneously froth milk and brew the espresso?Hi maya0917, With the Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine, you cannot froth the milk and brew your espresso at the same time. If you'd like a machine to do both simlutaneously, the Breville Oracle Touch Espresso Machine will do just that. Here is the product page for that machine: https://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/breville-oracle-touch-espresso-machine/Date published: 2019-02-27
