We thought we'd upgrade this time around, having owned two cheaper Breville models in the past. I'm disappointed with the coffee my new machine is producing, having experimented with different grinds and beans..even buying the same coffee I used in my...

Nice and does its job well


I came to the Breville infuser from an expensive twice the price sunbeam em7000 that lasted me just over 12 months.. and I have say coming from the bigger machine, the infuser felt really really small at first and I had my doubts. The other thing that...

Good, reliable machine


I have had the BES840 for 14 months. Used every day for 4 lattes and the odd espresso. No leaks, no returning to Myers -it just works. Took a bag of coffee to dial in the Sunbeam grinder - only minor grinder changes since when changing coffee beans.

Decent coffee. Easy, compact. My first machine.


Bought nine months ago. Used at least three times daily. My first espresso machine, so I had a bit to learn. I didn't use the free barista course that is offered. We are space constrained, so this is a good unit. Play around with different coffee...

Love this Machine


Had this machine for almost a year making at least two coffees a day and so far so good. Makes great coffee and steams milk to a silky smooth texture (took a while for me to perfect that) and easy to clean. Bought from Myer on special and would recommend.

Budget espresso goodness


I've been lucky with our unit, no troubles at all. We bought ours a year ago to replace an old Sunbeam. I really like the espresso, very rarely over extracted, the temperature control and infuser makes for a unique combination, much more friendly to...

Owned an 820 for around 6 years, enjoyed every time that I had a coffee from it, reliable and never skipped a beat. Got me the 840 and have had nothing but disappointment for a whole month now, not one good experience. can not believe for the money it...

I really can't fault it


I've had my machine for just over a year and must say I've been really pleased. I'm bit of a coffee geek and don't mess around with my coffees. The shots I'm pulling are great, very rarely get a dud. Obviously a lot is to do with the making skills,...

Price, quality of components

Seems a bit precious with regards to filter replacement times and cleaning.
