Pressure gauge does not work

 

I bought this machine second hand; but looks as if it's hardly been used. Checked rubber seal ok. Pressure gauge doesn't move; what would be causing this please. Many other people have had the same problem; some say blockage in water line to group head...

Great value on sale when matched with a non-Breville grinder

 

old school steam wand, not the fake froth panartello turbo wands that come with cheaper machines and autos. I have had no leaks or other problems. Breville 840XL portafilter issues/quality - Breville sent me a new one (outside of warranty) after the...

Fantastic machine, and coffee, at an affordable price

 

s at this price are just thermoblocks) which heats the water more evenly. But man if it doesn't make an excellent cup of coffee. The steam wand is brilliant and produces excellent textured, microfoamed milk. It does it so well that yes, you can do...

Brilliant PID machine that makes very very good coffee. It has won me.

 

ust returned a BES900 twin boiler and it was no better than what I've been using now. Is the pressure gauge accurate. Yes, but it works symptomatically. That is, if your grind has issues too fine or too coarse, tamped way too hard or soft, used the...

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....
