Breville "the Barista Pro" Espresso Machine - Stainless Steel is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 1305.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed so far I was delighted with my purchase of the Barista Pro in April 2020. The look and the operation of the machine was good. However, within 6 weeks the grinder began to have little problems. I have managed to work around that, but now the steaming feature is inoperative. I have followed the manual's suggestions to no avail. I have had the machine for only five months. I so wanted this to be my last espresso machine, but I am discouraged with it. I have read other reviews concerning long hold times with Customer Service. On Monday I shall have to begin my attempts to contact them. I would recommend holding off purchasing Breville for some time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete Newbie reviews the PRO Im new to the espresso world. Had to google best machines and breville is in every list. I bought the PRO and I LOVE IT! I always assumed coffee was always bitter until I bought this machine. Not only was the shot not bitter, but after i poured in the steamed milk, i never had to use sugar. I love the creamy and foamy texture it produces. The only negative i have to say is that i wished it had the option or ability to produce a hotter pour. If not mistaken i believe the less expensive breville bambino plus had it. Other than that, i believe this is the go to machine. I would suggest this over the barista express bcuz the PRO can deliver a faster pour so the fresh shot of crema is in tact.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 6 months later - update I have been using the Barista Pro for 6+ months now and have upgraded my overall rating Now getting a more consistent double shot after getting the grind and dose right for the beans we use (if you change beans then likely you will have to make some grind and dose changes) and much better milk texturing after a few more goes Machine is very fast & easy to use. It is not quite giving the same coffee experience as my older machine but it is so much quicker, there is less mess and i would recommend for home/family use. If you are chasing an ultimate espresso this may not be the choice but I am finding this a good unit for most purposes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was really happy to get this machine because I normally spend a lot of money at coffee shops. Set up of the machine was pretty easy but it did take a few days for me to get used to using it. It took me a few tried to adjust the grinder the way that I wanted it but once I got the hang of it, it was really easy. This is one really impressive machine. It makes a great expresso and I learned how to make a really delicious cappuccino with it as well. I really like the fact that it has a milk frother. The coffee that I have made with this machine tastes worlds better than a regular coffee maker. The water does not take long to heat up and the coffee is made in 2 minutes or less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 year update! Wow, this coffee gets better and better! I usually just have an americano, lattes once a week. My daughter in law has model below this..she changed settings for latte, incredible. The default grind at 15 is a little weak, good for americanos. We changed grind to 4 to 6 time went up over 20 sec, awesome! Best ever! Getting to be a snob now! Packed it for our 2 week beach vacation! Big hit! One potential suggestion We only use rev osmosis water. Indiana has a ton of lime which will ruin heater quickly. Cleaning should extend time for ro. Dont use city tap water. You will need sevice in 3 yr. I serviced our old maker heplacing heating elements, solenoid valves, pumps, due to mineral deposits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Fast coffee every morning for my drive in! We purchased a couple months back, and this machine is awesome! We had a fully automatic which never really steamed the milk well. I also spent my time cleaning the inside, disassembly, etc. This machine at first we were concerned it would take too long , tamping the beans, foaming the milk...etc. Nope! It's just as fast, Milk foam like we want , Easy to switch Milk type, ( I use Skim, My wife likes Almond) And it's always clean. My sons has a pressure gage, I would like if they added a pressure gage to the digital so you know if you are grinding and pressing correctly. Should be easy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic "little" machine! Very well rounded machine with modern technology to improve on its (still in production) predecessor, the Barista Express. It turns on in 2 seconds and steam is ready within 5 seconds (on average), even after being off all night. Fantastic, delicious espresso like I used to pull when I was a barista at a specialty coffee shop; only difference is that the portafilter is a bit smaller than on commercial machines so I naturally get less espresso. Easy to clean as the drip tray slides out and the screen allows you to select the cleaning stage and does the rest (mostly) automatically. I plan on taking care of this machine and owning it a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I`ve been using the Barista Pro since March i have been using the Barista Pro since March. The machine is extremely awesome and the coffee is AMAZING! Compared to the competition, the Barista Pro is really well built. The portafilter is heavier and it is made out of better material than other espresso machines. You can perfectly tamper the coffee and so you can avoid channeling. it is amazing how fast the product is ready to use and i appreciate the warm water ready in just a few seconds. For the price you pay, the grinder is pretty good. Buy the product, you won`t be dissapointed. I can say that my coffee made with Barista Pro is as good as the one bought from a specialized coffee shop, if not, sometimes even better! :) :)
