Things to Consider Before Buying This Model

When considering the Breville Barista Pro, there are several factors to take into account to determine if it’s the right espresso machine for you:

Pros:

  1. Fast Heat-Up Time: The ThermoJet heating system allows the Barista Pro to heat up in just 3 seconds, significantly reducing the waiting time before you can start making coffee​.

  2. Integrated Grinder: The built-in conical burr grinder with dose control delivers the right amount of coffee on demand, with adjustable grind size to suit different coffee types​.

  3. Ease of Use: The intuitive LCD interface guides you through the entire process of making coffee, from grinding and extracting to milk texturing, making it user-friendly for both beginners and experienced users​.

Cons:

  1. Learning Curve: While the machine is user-friendly, there is still a learning curve associated with dialing in the grind size, dose, and extraction time to achieve the best results. Beginners might need to spend some time experimenting​​.

  2. No Dual Boiler: Unlike some other high-end models, the Barista Pro does not have a dual boiler system. This means you can’t brew coffee and steam milk simultaneously, which might be a drawback for some users​.

Summary:

The Breville Barista Pro is a highly capable and versatile espresso machine that offers fast heat-up time, an integrated grinder, and user-friendly features. It is well-suited for those who want a high-quality espresso experience at home and are willing to invest in a premium machine. However, potential buyers should be prepared for regular maintenance and a learning curve to get the best results. Consider the space you have available and whether the lack of a dual boiler is a significant drawback for your coffee-making routine.

This is a wonderful machine. Everything you need for great coffee and great morning

This Barista Pro looks amazing on our countertop. Within a few tries I managed to pull very good tasting and nicely balanced shots with perfect crema. Getting the grind setting right is very important and it will vary between coffee beans so take your time to play around with the settings a bit. The 30 incremental grind settings allow for precise results and once you have it dialled in you won’t be dissatisfied. The 3 second heat up time is mind blowing. Hot water is ready instantly and the steam wand produces great textured milk (with practice). We use it 2 to 3 times a day for over a year now with not a single issue. I do recommend to buy a bottomless portafilter to be able to see the extraction and see any channeling in order to correct it. Also a calibrated tamper will probably help. Be aware that some coffee beans may require a grind setting adjustment of up to 15 increments on the dial. Quite the range difference between beans we have noticed. Coffee Warehouse beans blend is very good. They sent us one pack for free. Have fun and Enjoy. I know we do!

Très satisfait de notre achat!

Le broyeur est très précis. Lorsque vous avez déterminé la durée de broyage qui vous convient , le volume de café est précis.

Un gros avantage est la rapidité d’obtenir la vapeur.

Trouver la recette qui nous convient fut facile et rapide. Par la suite, cette machine répète agréablement bien. Chaque café est un délice!
