Breville "The Barista Express" Espresso Machine is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 126.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from best coffee I bought this machine from Harvey Norman Warrawong only 2 days ago upgraded from a pod machine. Spent the first day reading the instruction manual and following all the instructions to a tee and testing out different grind settings. My first batch of coffee beans were not fresh so no crema. They had been sitting in our pantry opened for over 12 months. Went out to buy fresh beans and what a difference!! Hopefully this machine will continue to give our family the coffee that we love. It will pay for its self in only a few months. Also some great training videos on youtube for this machine that are worth watching if your a bit nervous like I was about using an expresso machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coffee once you have the settings dialed in I've had this for just over a month and have been loving the coffee it has been producing lately. The most important thing with this machine is you need fresh beans! I've tried extracting from a few different types of beans and the difference between freshly roasted and old beans is unbelievable. The settings on this machine are easy to tweak but you can expect to go through quite a bit of beans when first setting it up. I've noticed the settings also need tweaking when changing bean types to get the pressure gauge in the right zone. Now I've had it for a while and dialed in the settings perfectly, I get a great extraction every single time and coffee that easily rivals a cafe's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my coffee machine I have had this machine for 6 years - we make 2-4 coffees daily - every day - without fail. My son is 10 and he can make perfect coffee for us so its easy to use. We have taken it on holidays with us - packing it up and putting it in the boot while we drive for days so I can vouch for its durability! Alas it is now starting to wear out - the wand has had all the first few layers of whatever it is coated with worn off thru use and the seal in the water tank is starting to go - but I'm so pleased with it I'm here shopping for an exact replacement! I know $700 seems expensive - but our home made coffee costs us about $1 to make , saving $2.50 per cup. So the two of us save $5 a day - which means in a year its paid for itself!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great at first but..... I'm 2.5 years into my Breville Barista Express experience & I must say the first 2.5 years have been pretty spectacular coffee quality wise. However, should a machine of this pedigree last longer than 2.5 years & the answer has to be yes. Fastidiously maintained but now showing apparent signs of a loss of pump power. In spite of the pressure gauge indicating ideal pressure levels, the flow of coffee from the group head is muted ie. it drips rather than trickles or flows. This is nothing to do with grind size , because the first 2.5 blissful years never indicated the problem I'm now experiencing. Perhaps the machine needs a proper Breville servicing? Is there such a service? I can't recommend the product if it deteriorates to this extent after 2.5 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase in a long time! Bought this coffee machine a few weeks back and it has been the best purchase I have made in a long time! I had been looking for a coffee machine at home and after trying a few different types of pod machines, I couldn't get a coffee that tasted like proper barista coffee. I had become a bit of a coffee snob in recent years and didn't want to settle for an average coffee everyday (and the cost of buying coffees was starting to add up). Paired with fresh beans from Dimmatina, this machine makes coffees just as good as the coffees I was buying everyday. I will never go back to buying coffees again! Make sure to take care of this machine and clean after each use, it may take more time to make your coffee and clean the machine, but it is definitely worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consumer was right! This machine rated top of the pops with Consumer, so I went with it and I can now fully endorse their position on it. It has proven to be very easy to express a really good shot and to successfully steam a cupful of milk. The instructions are easy to follow and everything works just as described. I've found it is necessary to warm the cups with boiling water before expressing because too much heat will be drawn from the brew if you don't. I think that's because it is a domestic milk steamer without the power of a commercial machine. The great thing about that, though, is that it's almost impossible to overheat the milk. The only other thing I've found worth mentioning is that the automatic coffee doser usually overfills the filter basket in the portafilter (even with the minimum dose selected). I simply pop a clean saucer under the doser and then re-use the spilt ground coffee. Overall, really good machine that looks good, works well and it really great value for money!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes great coffe We have owned this machine for the last 6 months making at least 2-4 double shot cups per day. The only negative things I can think of is after getting the steam going and then pausing to put the jug under the wand it vents the built up steam and you have to start again. While it doesn't do it all the time it does it enough to be annoying. For the first 20-30 uses the grinder motor emitted a faint odour like the motor was getting a little warm, this has stopped now. The built in burr grinder works very well and cleaning is easy. Tips: 25-30 seconds pour is perfect(double shot) Fill you cups with water and heat in the microwave Buy a frothing thermometer If you take sugar, try putting it in the jug with the milk the froth it.
