Reviews & Community QA

Breville Barista Express, Cranberry Red is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Excellent, however.... This machine is outstanding as a home espresso set up with a great price. There IS a learning curve however, and you need to be prepared to practice (and toss out mistakes) grind sizes with beans, how many grams will make your "perfect shot", getting your extraction right, etc... It will take some time if you aren't familiar already with doing this. Tips; 1. Don't necessarily start with subpar beans to practice with. You won't like how any of the shots taste that you pull so you won't really be able to fine tune the extraction. 2. Every type of beans will need the grind size adjusted (brand, as well as various kinds within the brand- ie. "Your favorite brand" in "A" blend won't be the same exact grind size as their "B" blend, etc..) 3. If you don't drink dairy (cow) milk and use alternative milks- find a "Barista" blend to practice with for your milk. It makes a HUGE difference in stretching the milk and keeping the end result from being a watery separated yuck. 4. Taste everything to learn. 5. Turn the machine on about 10 minutes before you want to make your beverage if possible and leave your demitasse cup or beverage cup on top of the machine to warm up as the machine does. Not mandatory, but it helps. 6. Plan to go through at least one bag of your favorite coffee as you practice. Don't give up, you'll get it down pretty quick, and even though you still need to adjust for various coffee beans, it will be quick and you will know what you are doing, so MUCH less waste. By the time you master the machine, you will really LOVE what it can do, AND you will probably realize how much skill it actually takes for your favorite barista to be your favorite barista! Show him/her some extra love next time you go to your favorite coffee house (and yes, we still go to ours, even with this awesome machine) As far as shipping- I received the machine a week earlier than expected- YAY!
