Better than Sunbeam's comparative model.

 

This coffee machine has been okay for us, it is much quieter than the Sunbeam cafe series one we replaced and heats faster. I don't think it will last more than 2 or 3 years though, mine is almost 12 mos. old and already leaks out of the hot water...

It is a great budget coffee machine, who like to get their hands on it. Good for beginner.

 

It is a great budget coffee machine, who like to get their hands on it. Good for beginner. Very happy about it. So far so good. The gaguage can allow you to improve your skills. The water tank is big. However the steamer is a bit slow once you get to...

Best investment ever

 

Bought for hubby when old one died. This was an upgrade and hummed and hahhed when considering, due to price. The coffee is the same quality, taste every time. It is easy to use as I learnt easily (couldnt get consistent coffee in last one). Well worth...

Revolutionised Coffee time at my sons house.

 

We purchased this model plus the grinder for our son for Christmas. It has revolutionised coffee time at their house, they no longer buy coffee out, no more unrecyclable coffee cups. They were amazed @ how great coffee can taste. Great little machine...

Great compact machine and consistently produces a good quality coffee.

 

Despite the fact that it eventually broke (all things do) I still give it 5 stars. I went on to buy the Breville Dual Boiler BES920 (for the fact it has 2 boilers and I could steam my milk at the same as pulling a shot) and found the quality of the...

A Dud - if you want it to last beyond the warranty period

 

to two different representatives and I was told the same story - Bad Luck, out of warranty, take it to the repairer at Seven Hills NSW, but first try factory default settings, which worked on and off for a week or so. I persisted for some time after,...

Fantastic coffee machine

 

This is my first coffee machine with a PID and it seems to make a massive difference. The coffee tastes great with no bitterness. There are lots of nice touches including the hidden accessories tray under the drainage tray. I thoroughly recommend this...

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...
