Breville "the Barista Pro" Espresso Machine - Black Stainless is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from True Barista Pro experience Fabulous machine. It gives you plenty of control without making it a tiring process, perfect balance for user experience. All parts are made of quality material, the feeling, weight, detail, everything gives you confidence that it will last and not turn into obsolete stuff after a year or so - plus all parts can be replaced as they are easily obtainable from Sage's website - I love the milk frother, jar, portafilter, grinder and everything, you notice the attention it was put to each part - no lose ends. For a newbie with good espresso machines, it takes almost a month to master it, but once you do, you consistently get amazing shots. Every morning I look forward to jumping at it and start making coffee - my friends have benefited from it immensely! The only downside is that it will be hard to pay for espresso on the streets because their quality will hardly beat the one you can get at home - but that's another win to investing on a Sage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic machine Very simple to use if you've already started your home barista journey with an entry level machine. Once you get the settings to where you like it the coffee comes out exactly the same every single time, no variations! The coffee is absolutely delicious (but we do buy "pro" coffee from a specialised shop, I'm sure that helps). The steamer is really good and once you get the hang of it your milk will be just right every time. The fact that it comes with a water filter is a great bonus for us as we live in a very hard water area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's worth it It takes a bit of time to figure out the correct grind setting but once this is done it produces delicious espresso. After watching a few videos you become master of frothing too, latte art will take a bit longer though. We're very happy with the machine, ultra fast warm up, beautiful design, well done breville!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the best home appliances The barista Pro is a great compact machine, it does it all. As I've worked in many cafe's and restaurants, I don't mind a coffee or 3. I love the fact it's basically ready to go within seconds of pressing a button. Love the smell of fresh beans being grinded and the simplicity of the no fuss design. I would have given it 5 stars if it had a double boiler so It could pour a shot at the same time as steaming milk, and haven't worked out the best combo of grind size and amount of grinds to achieve maximum Crema.. but it's not a 25k commercial machine that I'm use to. This machine is one of the best home applications I've personally used. And the beans I get from work does it justice. So I'd highly recommend putting this in your top 5 If you're anything like me and read reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Starter Espresso Machine This is a great started espresso machine. I decided I wanted to get more into espresso and making milk beverages. So far the machine has been incredibly easy to use and the digital interface is well layed out and provides great information. It looks brilliant in my kitchen and is a good conversation starter. Milk steaming is great, but it helps to watch some videos online to get right. I think the instruction booklet doesn't provide enough information on how to properly dial in espresso, I've had to rely on sources on YouTube and forums to fully understand what to do and what flavours mean. This is fine for me, but something Sage should maybe consider trying to summarise themselves in the provided documents. It may be me, or the machine, but I still get a lot of inconsistent channeling. I dose and tamp consistently but still the channeling happens inconsistently which is unhelpful. It may be the smaller basket or inability to fully manage pressures, or still something I need to do. Ultimately I don't mind this given the price and quality of the machine in general. The steaming knob should have an extended lever as it's a little annoying to operate. I think you can change this manually but likely not advised. Overall this product is brilliant, and the price is even more convincing. This is the beginning to my new coffee and espresso hobby!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and create the best taste for you. From the first use it produced an excellent coffee, without having to play with settings. After a few coffees we made small adjustments and got for us a perfect coffee from the beans we were using. We changed the type of beans and each time we made one we tweaked the settings to get what we liked best. It’s brilliant.
