Excellent for the price


I bought this machine cheap. As an ex-barista the machine is a bit time consuming to produce a cup but does the job well. I am able to do latte art and get my espresso shots. Maintaining the machine is real easy. All in all this machine does what it's...

Was a great machine


Very good coffee, not that much crema. It's easy but time consuming. Then it did not work and was leaking ll the time. I don't really know why. Such a shame it could not be used now and the parts are hard to find, or there is no service centre where i...

Great cheap unit if you want to reduce trips to the cafe. Repair tip included.


In operation at home since 2009. No breakdowns, reliable, coffee as good as the brand and maker so its improved over the years. Only just replacing the brew head seal in 2013. Replacement: drain the unit, remove tank, get squat Philips head, turn unit...

Great coffee but problem with stiff knob


This machine makes great coffee and crema. However, I find the middle knob that switch from coffee to frother sometimes so stiff that I cannot turn it. This machine frothes the milk to perfection. I purchased this machine about 2.5 years ago, no leaks...

Makes great coffee, for an inexpensible machine.

The large knob is v ery stiff and sometimes almost impossible to turn.

You get what you pay for....


This machine was a nightmare to own! I had just graduated uni (2007) so thought I'd treat myself to this espreso mchine as Breville used to have a good name in my family... How wrong I was with THIS product. Incredibly loud- I worried our neighbours...

Bad warranty, breaks down often, extremely loud!

This is the second one of these machines over the years and have had this one over 12 months and I think the seal is broken as has started spitting everywhere except in the cup? From spare parts website I ordered new seal ($12 plus postage so $19) then...

Was very good up until started playing up. Good for the price, under $150

Cannot unscrew to insert new seal
