Quick shipping; solid product quality, very easy set-up and instructions. Easy to clean, easy to use. Came with a sample mix of different coffee flavors. Highly recommend this product. We've already used the coffee maker many times. Goes very well with stainless steel appliances in our kitchen.
I bought this Breville Espresso Maker for my husband for Christmas. I researched Espresso makers for a week before I decided on the Breville Infuser Espresso maker. The machine is beautiful, well built with Stainless Steel. The instructions were clear and fairly easy to follow for a first time espresso maker like me. It heats up Fast and is ready to use almost as soon as you put it on. The Milk Frothier works perfectly and doesn't spray the milk all over like other frothiers I've used. My husband says it taste better than the coffee shop and saves him money and time. It only takes a few minutes to make it for him. I use the instant hot water for my tea. Well worth the price and makes my kitchen look even more beautiful.
We purchased this machine as beginners to making espresso at home. Have owned it for almost 12 months and have not had any mechanical problems using it. Just have to clean the Portafilter by un-screwing it, at least every 2 weeks for our use. We also use Alkaline water, not tap-water. Functions as advertised. Perfect for us beginners. Easy to operate. Watched a lot of videos on how to make espresso and lattes. With lots of practice this first year on making the espresso and making foam, we've gotten much better and the coffee is great! We use the larger 2-cup filter for a more consistent pour, which fits closer to a coffee house 7-9 gram ground coffee measurement. The smaller filter didn't make espresso the way we like, the timing was off and the using larger filter produced a better flavored coffee over all. We also tried using Pods with the pod filter and it was easy, but still not a good as using freshly ground coffee. We also purchased a *** coffee grinder which really helped produce more consistent ground coffee and espresso pours. We're able to adjust our ground coffee accordingly so it worked well and didn't jam our espresso filters. We chose this machine over the newer Cuisinart model 2.0 so we'd have more control over making our espresso. Great machine overall for our needs. Would recommend.
