The 4 keys formula for third wave specialty coffee at home:
- Rich, full flavour
- Perfectly balanced taste
- Irresistible body
- Silky, velvety mouthfeel
The 4 keys formula for third wave specialty coffee at home.
1. Rich, full flavour
Full-bodied coffee with rich and complex flavours is created using the right dose of 19-22g of freshly ground beans. This dose allows the coffee to fully express the incredible aroma, intense flavours and distinctive character of the coffee, for a true cafe quality result. Anything less than the optimal dose results in a weak and watery taste experience.
2. Perfectly balanced taste
Sweet, delicious and nuanced flavour notes begin with precise control over water temperature. Digital temperature control (PID) technology precisely controls water temperature for a perfectly balanced coffee extraction, giving you the control and consistency for delicious tasting coffee every time.
3. Irresistible body
An opulent, creamy and caramel-coloured espresso starts with low pressure pre-infusion that soaks the grinds, allowing water to pass evenly through the coffee during the high pressure (9 bar) extraction process, delivered via our 15 bar Italian pump. This results in a rich, sweet and viscous espresso.
4. Silky, velvety mouthfeel
Savour the silky taste and velvety mouthfeel of true microfoam milk. The milk is steamed with pressure that creates thousands of tiny bubbles, enhancing flavour and mouthfeel, while the temperature brings out the milk’s sweetness, exciting your taste buds, for a harmonious blend of rich, sweet milk and syrupy, golden espresso.

The downsides: the machine is a little light, so you need to steady it when attaching the portafilter, but it's lightness also helps moving it around easily.
Only comes with a double wall basket; fine for pre ground coffee but not great if you're trying to get the most out of specialty beans.
Drip tray is a little small; with purging and rinsing, you'll have to empty after 2-4 coffees.
The positives: comes with everything you would need for a first espresso setup; high quality jug, tamper, dose leveller, cleaning tablets etc.
Simple controls for automatic shots, but it's also very easy to manually control.
Auto milk steaming (recommend lowest temp and lowest foam setting for a perfect flat white) is excellent for beginners.
Stainless steel construction is nice, yes there's some plastic (drip tray etc) but who cares at this price?
Preinfusion works well to pre saturate the grounds.
Auto steam wand purge is great to keep it clean.
Order a single wall basket from breville if you have a grinder; you'll have to play around more but you'll get a lot more out of your coffee.
My workflow: After switching on, run a blank shot through and rinse the filterbasket with hot water to heat it up. Dry and then dose with coffee.
Get your milk steaming, meanwhile tamp your coffee. As soon as milk is done, get your portafilter in, and pour your shot to taste.
Again, for the money, very impressed and it's a great starter machine that fits in a compact kitchen.
It is nice and compact and you’ll save on bench space. Would probably be “ok” if you’re just making coffee for one person but I wouldn’t recommend this coffee machine and I really like Breville appliances.
I didn't want to force a new hobby onto my family, so I wanted something they could use, I would be happy with and didn't take up much space. And this is a surprisingly competent machine and has some nice features if you're not an enthusiast.
It's super fast to get ready to brew from cold, the water tank is transparent and on the outside (oh how I wish high end espresso machines would adopt that design feature), auto steaming, and a little warning buoy that tells you when you need to clear the drip tray.
You get the normal problems with a pressurised basket. But the extraction tastes fine, it just won't wow you ever. You might do a better job with a single walled basket. But I don't intend on teaching my family to dial the grind in.
The auto steaming on this is quite impressive. I tried it with soy milk and quite frankly it's far better than my first attempts at texturing soy. It's actually quite passable.
A couple of problems: it's so light and the recommended dose is far too high. I had to play around to find a technique to lock in the handle without the machine moving (it can be done) and you really want to dose about 14-15gr. It says 19, but that would overflow the double basket.
But still impressive what they did in such a small machine.
It looked great,but unfortunately it didn’t meet my expectation the frothing was poor and not as described in reviews.The 2 cup coffee container kept coming out of the holder.
I have returned this item for refund.
Dislike: the machine moves when attaching the portafilter to the group head. Different design of base could reduce some of that.
