Great little machine.
We used this machine in our small office. The espresso is simple to make and we have been able to pull some great shots with nice crema. I did pull 6 shots in a row one morning and the grinder overheated. It certainly isn't he most robust of grinders, but it gets the job done. It is fairly easy to keep clean as well. Good value.

Going Strong!
I purchased this machine about 18 months ago for a small 10 person office. We have probably pulled 1,000 single and double shots. Recently the rubber seal ring wore out, but this was easily ordered from Breville and we are going strong again. The coffee is so much better than a pod system and is much beloved. We don't use the wand much and mostly do americanos.

Value for price paid is very good. It paid for itself vs. Going to Starbucks in the first year.

Does this machine have the ability to add hot water to espresso for a rich american coffee?
A shopper on Oct 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: YES, and it works perfectly. (Also, the hot water is clean and coffee-free, so it's also good for tea.)

How much does this weight?

Does anyone know how big of a tamper would I need? I know it comes with one, but I'm being told by every single fellow barista to get a separate hand tamper.
Becky W on Sep 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The tamper that's included with Breville is more than adequate. I always use it detached from the machine, rather than nestled into its magnetic storage area next to the grinder, because it gives you better control and visibility. If you were to buy additional accessories with the unit, I would go for an additional filter holder and baskets so that you can be grinding and tamping the next cup for your partner/spouse while brewing is in progress ...
Does it have two boilers ?
Valjeanne J on Dec 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it doesn't.
My steam stopped working the water comes out of the wand but the steam next comes out of the coffee pod area. I did notice the "clean me" button is on, not sure how to clean?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi! It sounds like your steam wand may be stopped up, which can happen if you don't wipe it down and run steam through it briefly immediately after every use. The machine came with a pin you can use to stick in the holes of the wand and unclog it. For cleaning the machine, the instruction manual has directions. It's fairly easy; you just use one of the tablets that should have come with your machine. If you don't have your manual anymore, I'm sure you can download it or maybe even find a YouTube demo.
No matter where I set ground courseness or tamp pressure I always seem to be at the very high end of acceptable
David S on Dec 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: In my experience this is a sign of too much coffee in the filter. The dosage for the built-in grinder is volumetric, so the actual mass of grounds that it produces varies greatly from fresh beans to dry beans, producing inconsistent results. We use a scale to measure out precisely 16g of beans, and I never use the 'precision dose trimmer' tool. Grind size is between 10-12 depending on how hard you like to tamp (at #10 we barely tamp, at #12 we tamp firmly). One more tip--it took us a while to figure out that we can manually control the timing of the pour. If you press and hold the brew button the machine will pre-infuse the shot for as long as the button is held down, then when you release the button it will pour a shot until you press it a second time. This can really help you get a feel for the way that different types of beans react to the pre-infusion (which is a huge factor in the quality of the crema), and it's also a great insurance policy against a high-pressure extraction--instead of the machine cutting you off with an incomplete shot you can just let it keep going until you get the full amount. It may not taste as good as a proper extraction, but it saves a bit of the frustration of only getting 1/4 oz of espresso from a full filter of grounds.
the dail on the machine does not work ?
jesse p on Aug 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Depends on what you referring to as a dial. On the right side you have knob for steam or frothing. Gauge in center of machine is for getting to and setting the proper pressure setting. Next knob to the left is for fine to coarse grind of the beans and the other dial on the left side of the machine is for adjusting to the quality of the bean in order to get the proper pressure. Oilier beans require a lower setting and drier ones need a higher setting. Hopes this helps it takes a bit to used to bean quality, grind and pressure setting to get the pressure right. Also the press on the grounds will make a difference in getting pressure and espresso to your liking.
How easy is it to use the steam wand to make steamed milk for latte? Does it splatter and make a mess?
Stacie K on Jan 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've only read positive things about the frother. One person said it takes trial & error, but once you get the hang of it, it's easy & the froth is consistent. No one has complained about it being messy, but I think that has more to do with how much milk you use at a time.
Will this unit work with Pods?
K on Sep 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No. Unless you want to tear open the pods and use their contents as "ground coffee".
Can I use the grinder to grind beans coarse enough for my Breville drip coffee machine?
Razmig D on Mar 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I suppose so. I have never ground beans on the coarsest setting, so I would not know for sure. It definitely can go fine for the espresso shots though.
Can I return an on-line purchase to a store?
A shopper on Dec 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can.
Does the Brevell express barista brew two espresso cups at same time?
A shopper on Oct 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I guess you could, it has 2 spouts, they would only be single shots each, I just use one cup and make it a double
Can you turn off the auto sleep feature and if so-""¿what is the problem leaving the machine on all the time? Jim
James H on Oct 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, the auto sleep cannot be bypassed.
how can i find out if this is sold in stores?
A shopper on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If an item is available in stores, there will be an option just below the "Add to Cart" button that allows you to check for items in nearby stores.
Is the boiler stainless steel ?
