Pneumatic Drill in your Kitchen

 

I followed all the instructions correctly in setting up the Breville Cafe Roma espresso machine and kept it for about a week, using it everyday. It was as loud as a pneumatic drill, I actually jumped the first time I turned it on and turned it quickly...

Very good value, consistent shots, excellent froth

 

I have had the Cafe Roma since December 2007, it was recommended to me by a Rancillio Owner as a good Value machine. It has performed flawlessly once I got the proper grind and tamp(as with any expresso machine). I use an inexpensive Breville grinder...

Great Value, consistent shots/froth. quick heat-up, large water reservoir, easier than single-walled portafilter designs

Lightly tamped Pucks removed immediately are messy.- need more room below steaming wand

The Cafe Roma makes great espresso, steams and frothes milk very effectively, and is great looking to boot. It heats up quickly and its warming tray is effective in warming up cups as long as you leave it on for at least five minutes before you pull...

Price ; heats up quickly ; good pressure for foam ; looks nice
