Can you use ESE pods? Why is that info never discussed? We need to know what kind of espresso can be used. That would be the main selling point I think.
For the people who have given this one star, all I can say is that they must not know how to make espresso?! I've had my Breville Cafe Roma for about 10 years, and I have never had any problems with it ... and I use it EVERY DAY, sometimes multiple times per day. If there are problems with leaking or pressure issues it it most likely worn out seals or overpacked filter cups. When used properly, this machine makes a very consistent cup of espresso. I do not use it regularly for the frothing wand, and the few times that I have used it, it was only OK. So if there's a legitimate gripe, it's that the pressure is probably inadequate to create quick foam....

We bought this coffee maker a sa replacement for a Kalorik unit. Maybe we just aren't lucky with coffee makers. The Kalorik model died after only a month. It spent over six weeks in service and died within two weeks of its return. This Breville coffee maker lasted less than five months and it gets very little use. It's less aggravation to drive to Starbucks in the pouring rain than to fight with these appliances.Read More
I am very pleased with the machine for the price. It makes exellent espresso, with a wonderful rich crema. The only reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars is that the milk frother is weak. It works, but it takes a lot of time to get the milk warm and frothed. Therefore, I have been using it primarially to make espresso, or the portuguese galao where I simply microwave the milk and pour it over the espresso. The crema still rises to the top, giving it a nice appearance.Read More
This coffee maker is excellent...I strongly recommend it for anyone who would like to enjoy perfect home made expresso.Read More
Was very disappointed in the Breville espresso machine, it was supposedly refurbished before you sent it to me, apparently not, the thing would not heat up then on top of it I have to pay the shipping to send the piece of junk back to you, thanks for nothing guys!Read More
I love my Breville. I thought that the black piece was missing off of the frother, because the manual and photos show a previous model that has the black baffle. I went to the Breville web site and found out that the upgrade on this model does not need the black plastic//rubber baffle, so don't be confused. The machine is very high quality. You will enjoy it!Read More
This is my second machine. I owned the first one for about five years until I accidentially submerged it in water and ruined the machine. I bought my second one and have been using it it for the past three years. This purchase was a gift for my parent's, my parent's always comment how good the coffee is when they come to my house so I thought I would surprise them. You will not find a better espresso maker for the money.Read More
I was slightly unsure at the time of purchase since I had never bought a refurbished product, however this espresso machine has been great. Nothing overly fancy-it makes good espresso and the steam wand is perfect for one glass of milk or so. Everything included (machine, steam pitcher, espresso scoop; etc) except the espresso cups but those are easy to find at any store.Read More
I have owned this machine close to ten years. 5 cups or more every day. Makes great coffee, use fine grind or expresso for best flavor. The gasket gives out every 2-3 years causing obvious leak. Gasket available on ebay and very few other places for five bucks, get a couple if you buy this and you will be glad later. Highly recommend, I would buy it again. Way better than drip coffee.Read More
We purchased this Espresso maker and it never worked properly. It is cheaply made, falls apart easily, leaks, makes a big mess and is definitely NOT worth your money.Read More
