Machine produces too much ground coffee on lowest setting


cups I need to set the grind size (finest) to setting 4 and when I make 1 cup I need to set it to around 14, if this is not done the extraction is either too fast and watery or too slow for good coffee. This is a real nuisance. I don't think I would...

Very Happy With This Coffee Machine


t-up the automatic pour time, which takes a few goes to get right. I had some help with this from a YouTube site that I found. The coffee taste is very good and the milk frothing is also very good. It is certainly not that quick, but quite okay as a...

Problems after 12 months


Coffee quality was good and we were happy with the machine... until 15 months after purchase when the water failed to stop running after the shot. The machine basically only has manual function now which isn't good at all. Very disappointed to see a...

No pre infusion registering


Can't get a good coffee because the pre infusion process doesn't appear to be happening at all. Then no matter what grind etc there is no reading on the dial above pre infusion during extraction?. No instructions on this in the manual supplied with the...

Consistent, customisable, fantastic.


Coupled with the Breville Smart Grinder, this thing is a beast. Very consistent, always a good drop, shot runs even with thick crema. The steam heat up system could be improved, however the wand itself works well, just requires a little bit of time....

Great machine for the price


If you are newbie & want a manual machine to make real espresso coffee you cannot go past this machine. I have had this machine for well over a year now & it works great. We make around 10 coffees a day on it, approximately a kilo a week of coffee. The...

good job


I have had this for two years. It is compact and looks smart. The water capacity is a bit limited at 1.8 l but that does about 5 cups so a daily top up covers it. The water is also used to cool the boiler so some goes to the waste tray which needs to...

So disappointed


There is nothing more disappointing than paying $600 or more and getting a faulty product. We followed all instructions to the letter, eagerly expecting decent coffee. But, we got a lemon. This Breville BES840XL is faulty and the pressure guage doesn't...
