Worth Learning!


Be prepared for a learning curve w this machine. We went through a bag of beans before we had a decent expresso. The milk frothing is more difficult than it looks. But-once you have the hang of it, the lattes are delicious! We haven't been to Starbucks...

Fantastic home Barista machine


We are very picky with how we brew our coffee and brew many different ways: from French Press to Italian stove top to Turkish coffee. This Barista machine makes a yummy espresso. I've worked as a Barista and for a home machine, this one is great!

Use it Everyday


I love this machine! I was a daily Starbucks customer and got tired of spending the money and not having quality dairy being consumed. We've had this for over 5 months and use it everyday. It's easy to use, easy to clean, and all around a great value....

Breville, an Australian Brand you can trust. Honestly one of the best machine of this type on the market. Little bit tricky to setup but after few try, the Espresso is great.
