May (NOT) be REPAIRABLE after warranty period
First, I like this machine. I've had a BES820 for several years. A small piece of tubing or connector broke a number of years ago, but a local repair shop that was able to buy parts from Breville at the time fixed it, and it's been a champ since then. So, I got another for our vacation home. So far ...

If you like latte's or expresso's every morning
Hello All, I purchased this in 2013. I had a breville previously. They go through steam rings. I knew this, I had the ESP8xl which lasted 7 years of daily use. It would eat a steam ring (which seals the cup you put the coffee in) every year or so. This unit is the same, and blew out a steam ring las...

Extracts Intense Flavorful Espresso - 2 Years Later
The media could not be loaded. Update 11_28_2016. The trick to keeping this thing running for is in the cleaning. After talking to support in the beginning of the year, they gave me a few tips: 1. When descaling the machine, allow the white vinegar/water solution to sit in the machine for 12 hours i...

Great Espresso for Home Use
I bought this to replace an older unit that went bad. The 1 thing the old unit had that I miss is a double boiler. That allows you to froth milk and make espresso at the same time, which is great to make drinks for lots of people. The Breville double boiler costs more than 2x. This unit can do one o...

Infuser Stopped Working After ONLY 1 Month!!!!
I was thinking of sending this product back before my 30 days was up for some reason. My husband, who does not drink expresso, talked me into keeping it because he knows that I like expresso. Wouldn't you believe that the infuser gauge stopped working. It no longer goes up to the expresso range. I o...

A Safe Bet for Your First Real Espresso Machine - But Be Patient with Yourself!
---UPDATES 5/25/15--- 1. Used this every day for over a year. Solid buy, would do it again. No breakages. I do follow the cleaning instructions religiously. 2. I was wrong about the machine only delivering 1 or 2 ounce cups. This morning I finally read the instructions on how to "program" the machin...

Review: Breville BES840XL/A the Infuser Espresso Machine | CoffeeorBust
However, there will not be a lot of finesse involved if you want to switch between steamed and frothed milk for cappuccinos and lattes.The included tamper is nifty in that it magnetically attaches to the machine for easy storage, but we feel that it leaves a lot to be desired. If you’re a skilled barista, you likely already have a favorite tamp and will be unimpressed with the one included
