Breville The Dual Boiler
This maker is so easy to learn and hard to make a mistake! Tamping is the only learning curve you have and the outcome is sooo worth it! We have wowed family and friends, we have at lease two cups a day. It even reminds you when its time to clean the machine! Love Love, would recommend to anyone that enjoys espresso or plain coffee.
A MUST HAVE....
....even if you're a beginner! This machine has so many features of the $3000 machines! And while it appears to be costly, you can make those $5 coffee drinks at home. This machine produces the same high quality shots...
Hers's a tip: it includes Two double walled baskets. While you don't get as good a shot with them, they're exactly what you need if you're a beginner because you don't have to have THE perfect grinder for the perfect grind consistency, and you don't have to tamp it with perfection. Practice with these, then learn the others. You'll be a barista in no time at all!
Breville is not new to the espresso machine world. But this top of the line machine is one of the best in its class. It's quite large,but you can fill it from the front. NICE! And it's on wheels so you can move it around if you need to, then lower the wheels back down when it's set.
The portafilter is STAINLESS! Superior over the plated brass ones as this will not get that gunk formed on it.
You'll get a year's supply of filters. Use them! By doing so, you will only have to have this machine professionally rescaled every 4-6 years!
I could go on and on about this machine, but I recommend you visit YouTube and view The Seattle Coffee Gear videos and read the CoffeeGeek review online.
Easy pay is making it easier to own this fascinating machine. Go for it! You'll be thrilled!
