  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what I need it to do We have now had this machine for 5 months and does exactly what I need it to do. This machine makes lattes easily and with minimal fuss. I am not an expert at making coffee drinks, but that does not matter because the machine walks me through making any kind of fancy coffee drink. I don't have to guess when the milk is done frothing or figure out how to brew the espresso. It does take some trial and error when you begin to learn how to make coffee due to the different coffee beans. I found that I have had to alter the grind size using different coffee beans. I find that the coffee is hot enough for me, although it is not as hot as you would get at a coffee shop. I follow the instructions in the manual, which suggest preheating the coffee mug. The filters are available if you contact the manufacturer directly, which is not ideal. Ultimately, this machine performs exactly as I needed it to and I very much enjoy my afternoon coffee!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't reach proper brew temperature I spent an afternoon trying to dial in shots using high quality, fresh, locally roasted coffee with no success. I started to think that the machine might not brew at the proper temperature. To test my hypothesis, I boiled water in an electric, digitally controlled kettle to boiling (i.e., 212 degrees). I then used that water to warm a double walled glass. I then poured freshly boiled water in the glass and measured the glass using a high quality digital probe. It read 195 degrees. I repeated the experiment immediately (with a freshly warmed glass), using water directly from the brew head (after it had been preheated). The thermometer read 155 degrees. I repeated the experiment again a day later using the milk frothing jug and the thermometer read 145 degrees. Clearly these temperatures are not what is advertised. Nor are they sufficient for brewing espresso. I attempted to contact breville by phone and by their online service portal. After an extensive wait, I received an email asking: "What kind of water are you using in the unit? If you use distilled or reverse osmosis water the unit may have an issue heating as it senses the minerals in the water to gauge volume and temperature." Of course I was using tap water. By that point, I had already exchanged the unit for a replacement. I found exactly the same problem with the replacement unit. Clearly there is a design or manufacturing problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing espresso machine I absolutely love this espresso machine. I got it last spring and have used it almost every single day without any problem with the machine whatsoever. Unlike a lot of other espresso machines I looked at, it makes a really nice hot coffee, which is very important to me, and it does an amazing job steaming milk for a latte. Also, it fits under my cabinets, which was the reason I did not get the larger and more expensive Barista Oracle. The only issue I have encountered was trying to find replacement filters. This was frustrating because Williams Sonoma doesn't carry them and they were not available on the Breville website. However, I emailed Breville customer service and received a response the next day. I was told that the website was not updated but that they were indeed in stock. I went ahead and placed an order with the rep and received them within a few days. I actually ordered several so that I would not need to replace them for a while. I very highly recommend the Breville Touch.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Brew Temperature Issues I bought this Breville Barista Touch after owning a Barista Express for many years. I noticed that the espresso was colder than my old Barista. Despite putting it in the highest setting the temperature would not reach higher temps than 140 degrees when it should be 160 Degrees. I called Breville support and they offered no solutions only excuses. When I googled Barista Touch Temperature problems there are a couple of youtube videos with the same issue so it seems to be a common issue, possibly due to their new heating system. However since I bought from Williams Sonoma and they are AWESOME I will take it back and buy something else.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water filters impossible to find We like the coffee maker - it makes great coffee - but replacements Claris water filters are completely impossible to find. On the Breville web site, they've been "out of stock" for the past year. Why go to the trouble of creating a great product if you're not going to support it?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply has changed my life Worked in a coffee shop in college and this is the closed thing i have found to a 20K Espresso machine! Absolutely love it. Does a great job making espresso and frothing milk. I do admit the lack of water filters is a little annoying. I did send an email into the support contact and I was taken care of. The water filter is not the end of using the machine, if you love it, filter the water and dump it in the tank...problem solved :).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible Customer Service I bought this espresso masker one year ago and was very happy with it until it broke one year later. I have since made multiple attempts to contact Breville Customer Service, waiting on hold in excess of thirty minutes, leaving messages, and ultimately never getting a response. Extremely disappointing for a product this expensive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found it! This is the third machine I’ve purchased in the last week in my quest to find the perfect home latte maker. First was the Saeco PicoBaristo - a noisy and pricey unit with quirky bugs that have it an feellike it wasn’t worth the money. Next came the Jura E8 - a stylish machine which couldn’t make a large milk drink more than luke warm. Then I found this Barista Touch by chance at Williams Sonoma yesterday. After an hour of fiddling with the machine to learn what I’m supposed to do, I already feel like I have mastered the perfect latte. This machine is incredible and easy to use once you figure it out. I learned the hard way that price doesn’t necessarily get you what you want. If you’re a fan of fresh and robust milk based drinks, I’d call this machine a must have. The price is worth it and I couldn’t be happier. On a side note - the staff at Williams Sonoma in the Phoenix Biltmore store are incredible! I’m very happy I went there for my shopping. We actually bought a bunch of other stuff too.......(I’m writing this while enjoying the best home made latte I have ever had....)

    Does this machine make Latte Macchiatos?

    Asked by: Cocoa Puffs
    A Latte Macchiato is an espresso drink specifically combined with milk and flavor. It would be up to the Barista operating the appliance to actually create that drink, but the machine can certainly provide the necessary results.

    Does this machine also make regular coffee along with espresso?

    Asked by: Colton1
    Hi Colton1, This machine doesn't make a traditional coffee but it can make an Americano/Long Black which is espresso + hot water.
