Breville "The Bambino Plus" Espresso Machine - Stainless Steel is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful no fuss machine! This machine is fantastic! I had been looking at more expensive machines for a while, but decided to go with this one once it was released. The automatic milk frother makes cafe quality milk. The machine makes a beautiful cup of coffee- no bitterness, good crema, delicious coffee. It does take a few goes to experiment with tamp and grind of beans, but once you have that right you can make consistently good coffee. I also purchased the breville pro grinder to get the perfect bean size. I recommend this machine if you are looking for a well priced product that has some features of the higher end machines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coffee from such a small package Have Purchased the Bambino plus and it delivers a really excellent coffee and surprisingly good milk from the auto frother (manual frothing can also be done but there is no need as auto is so close it’s not worth it). I have had top of the line in Sunbeam, Saeco, Breville and (Delonghi Nespresso for travelling) currently running a Breville BES870 at home for last 6+ years and still love it. The BES870 still delivers the best coffee but The Bambino (for use at holiday house) is very close and definitely easier and quicker to use. We need a separate grinder and purchased a non pressurised basket because it only comes with dual wall filter basket. Highly recommend especially if either bench space is limited or you want your coffee quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing coffee machine Its exactly what I was after. My coffees are better than purchased coffees. No more holding and frothing the milk as it does it for you..smooth silky milk. Perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great if you like lukewarm coffee I would have given this half a star but it won't let me go that low. I was excited by what this promised, but cannot recommend it. The auto milk frother works brilliantly, but the expresso coffee comes out lukewarm - I had to microwave it to make it hot enough to drink. In this price range there are better options than this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely adore this treasure! Bought this late November & am addicted to the machine. It is so easy to use! Milk frother cleans itself. It takes such a short time to make a cafe quality coffee if you play with the settings. Even without it's great coffee. So happy I bought this Bambino of mine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from little bit too automated Decent. It's more automated than i realised, which means i can't alter the angle of the jug to improve the milk froth. Not quite the same level of control i had with my older Breville.
