"Seattle Coffee Gear created a 13-minute video review of the Dual Boiler September 30, 2011: http://youtu.be/7NIGabvnD2w
The day has come! We finally received our demo production model of Breville's new double boiler espresso machine. We go through all of its features, functionality and tech specs, then Gail demonstrates making a latte. We're hard pressed not to adore this espresso machine!
Note, this review was created independently but added here by Breville."

Reviewer, Mark Prince:
"This new project, for the Breville Dual Boiler, the BES900 or BES900XL model, is a complete in house design as well, but with some new twists; Breville hired a noted Australian coffee guru (Phil McKnight, cafe owner, ABC judge) to be part of the design team. The goal was to design an espresso machine that would blow away expectations the typical home espresso enthusiast would have about big-brand appliance makers. The goal was to set a new standard. ...
"They paid attention to many of the things enthusiasts were saying in forums and internet communities revolving around coffee and espresso. They developed prototypes using sometimes new, sometimes proven, sometimes cutting edge technologies to produce a better shot of espresso. They looked at everything, from PID, to boiler sizes, to thermoblocks, to grouphead designs, to materials used in the portafilter, and eventually came up with an intriguing formula. ...
"What was impressive was just how much engineering savvy has gone into this machine. Seemingly little things like the rubber grip for the steam wand, to bigger things like the innovative steam wand lever control and even the secret compartment and the way you can raise the machine and roll it around the counter. ...
"I feel confident in saying this is a first class espresso machine with a feature set a Rancilio Silvia or Ascaso Steel Duo could only dream of having ... In some cases, the machine approaches what the GS/3 is capable of, and even in few cases (ie how steam is activated), it exceeds the user experience of the GS/3."
