November 5, 2015I'm not sure how I've lived without it
"It's the best espresso you can ever buy! I used to visit Starbucks everyday - not anymore! I love my mornings because of this machine now!!!"
October 26, 2014I love this machine more than life itself
"Seriously, I love my dual boiler so much. What can I say? After years of wanting to be able to do latte art on a lesser machine I finally learned/realized you need a professional quality machine to do it, and that's what this is. It's so much fun to make a great espresso drink and to try your hand at latte art. So what if all I can do is a heart shape and a sort-of Rosetta after a year of trying? I get better with each drink I make! And they all taste great!
Thank you Breville for this wonderful machine! (I have the 900XL)."

"I love this machine. I can now make my own decaf iced mochas, cappuccinos, lattes, etc. Previously I had a single boiler machine (another brand). Whenever I wanted to make a drink that included textured milk I had to complete two steps and inevitably the latte would get too cool in the process. With this Breville dual boiler there's no waiting. The frothing wand is plenty long enough, the pressure is controllable, and the espresso shot can be made while frothing. There are many other features such as instant hot water for tea or to warm a cup, the unit is easy to move on the counter, it is user friendly, etc. There are a bunch of programmable functions which I haven't yet gotten into, so you can use them or not, its up to you.
If you were to consider the lost revenue to Starbucks this machine has caused, in my home alone,....I would say the Breville Dual Boiler Espresso Machine is a bargain. Enjoy!!
BTW I also purchased the Breville Bean Grinder and it too is an excellent machine. I have never before had such great coffee at home."
