Reviews & Ratings

Love it!
★★★★★
After using it for more than a month I am really happy with the purchase. I think the machine is very easy to handle and I am able to constantly make good espresso. It is a bit messy so you need to have access to running water to be able to clean up after using it. Overall, I am very happy with it.

Pays for itself
★★★★★
This espresso machine is the cat's meow. Instant professional quality latte, cappuccino, americano, you name it, you got it. Hint: Just keep it clean.

★★★★★
Great espresso machine, once you get the right settings it will make fantastic espresso coffee. It requires a little bit more time to take care of it but I believe its worth it. I had Gaggia Pure for more then 6 years. I love it but one day it stopped working. We had to buy another one and I am glad we got Breville Barista. My Gaggia Pure starter working once it dried out ( I guess it got wet ), so now I have it as a back up.

beware of pressure issues
★★★★
I've had it for a few months; the portafilter (part above the portafilter) sometimes gets clogged, that affects the brewing pressure. You need to clean it out to get it fixed. Managed to get it fix after contacting support.

4.5 stars
★★★★★
I more than "like" this machine so 4 stars isn't adequate but it's not truly 5 star rating. (previous experience with espresso machines: Delonghi Magnifica & random other non-fully auto machines) Pros: Makes an excellent (espresso, latte etc). Use good, fresh coffee and you won't be disappointed. The infusion gauge is really helpful to see where you need to adjust your grind, tamp or coffee amount to get a proper shot. Love the inclusion of the "pre-infusion" stage as well as the ability to minutely adjust your coffee shot to be the way you want it. Milk is easy to steam, properly...unlike so many consumer machines on the market. The wand is much easier to clean than most consumer machines. No dis-assembly required. Grinder is very nice...easily adjustable to whatever grind you prefer and can grind extremely fine. You don't have to have the machine turned on to adjust it. The storage space for the tamper is perfectly designed. It comes with a milk pitcher. A nice bonus I neglected to mention that it comes with 4 baskets (2 dual wall for pre-ground coffee and 2 single wall) as well as a cleaning kit. I was also impressed with the sturdy build of the machine. None of the components feel or look flimsy. Cons: Messy. It makes a great cup but just be prepared for a mess (coffee grounds) every time. Coming from a fully auto machine, the mess is going to take some getting used to... Water tank in back. This is very inconvenient for kitchens with top cupboards without a lot of space btw the counter and cupboard. Overall this is the best consumer machine I've used so far. I'm very impressed.

Excellent machine
★★★★
I have been espresso double shot drinker for well over 20 years. Growing up in Europe i actually did not know anything else but espresso. After reading many reviews - good and bad i decided to pull the trigger on Breville BES870xl. Few things i have noticed with this machine- using a Lavazza Super Crema beans i can not make the machine to get into the right extraction zone- i am always bellow with the point. However even so the espresso comes little quick than the manufacturer recommendation it has nice thick crema and strong flavor- does not feel under-extracted at all. I would try use at least two other brands to see if the reason is beans or just inaccurate gauge reading. I never pour milk in my espresso as this ruins the flavor of the coffee completely but the steam seems to produce nice micro bubbles in about 90sec. Fine tuning the temperature control before exctraction - +,-4F in 2F increments is great if changing coffee beans often. "Auto Purge" function ensures the ground coffee will not be burnt by the initial water flow from the thermocoil being too hot right after using the steam. That hot water is automatically released into the drip tray after the steaming to ensure optimal temp. for the coffee. Espresso coming out of that machine is Heaven and takes minimum skills. As this is the newer model of BES860 i was unable to find any information about the well known 860XL problem with water leak which occurs in about a year in most of the reviews that i found. I would love to hear from Breville expert if they take any steps to address that issue. The main competitor in my purchase list was Ranchillio Silva v3, which is proven champion during the years but comes about $500 more expensive- for the new one with installed PID controller $200 and a nice grinder -about $330 UPDATE: 06/11/2013 BES870XL is back at Amazon...Replaced it wit Breville Infuser + Breville Smart Grinder. Build in grinder comes out a complete joke. With new Smart Grinder i have a lot more flexibility and can handle pretty much any beans that i throw in. Thing that you would missed is programable temperature, which is not big deal for me because build in PID plus ne thermocoil deliver consistent results at great temperature. UPDATE: 06/28/13 Breville Infuser is a good machine but Smart Grinder is not capable of grinding fine enough. On finest setting, my Lavazza Super Crema still comes fast, and even the crema looks ok it taste sour and felt under-extracted. At this point i am don experimenting with different Breville combinations and got Ranchilio Silvia V3 with Auber PID and Ranchilio Rocky grinder. It comes more expensive but considering the 3 years warranty(2 from factory and 1 from retailer) , much better, almost commercial build in quality and a lot more capable Grinder it is justifying the cost. If you are not straight espresso shooter- Breville Infuser+Smart Grinder could be a good solution. Forget to mention my Smart Grinder start changing the grind setiings on its own after pressing Start button- it goes all the way to the finest setting regardless of what i've set ...so reliability of this brand is highly questionable for me. Good luck everyone and let the best Espresso machine win ;))))

Works Great!

Low quality manufacturing, don't waste your money on

The machine wasn't working great from the get go, but took us a while to figure out it wasn't that we didn't know how to use it, it just came malfunctioning- which we found out when it completely stopped working less than a year after buying. We got it fixed through the warranty. Unfortunately one year later, the same part broke again. Definitely not buying breville again, really unreliable, low quality manufacturing

Great home espresso machine for the avid home-barista!
★★★★★
This is the second espresso machine I've owned, and it is the best one so far! My husband and friends surprised me with it almost a year ago for my birthday, and it has been a joy to make and serve delicious espresso beverages. It is easy to care for, easy to clean, and I'm especially happy that the things like replacement filters and cleaning tablets are affordable. I have not been succeeding at foam art, but it makes better foam than my last espresso machine, so I think it has more to do with me needing to figure out how to do it with this machine and practicing than the ability of the machine's steaming capabilities lol. I love the storage it has, the built-in grinder and dispenser. My ONE sad face is that the height doesn't adjust for taller mugs and travel containers, but a lot of them I can still tip, or remove the tray to still brew the espresso directly into the cup. I just need to put a rag under the machine if I remove the tray.

Awesome espresso machine
★★★★★
Awesome espresso machine, which satisfies me, my family and all my friends. Great in making Americano, latte, espresso. Some experience and you will be able to make coffee, which will taste as one of the best coffee brewed by professionals! I use several types of Italian Lavazza, buying it from Seattle Coffee Gear shop, but it all depends on your taste. Thank you, Breville, for your great quality product, and Amazon, for selling it! Ten stars.
