I love this purchase! I am a beginner when it comes to making espresso drinks and this machine makes it so easy! I think the only negative part of this machine is having to clean the foaming wand, but this is probably with every machine like this. The clean out tray is easy to empty, the outside is easy to just wipe down, the water is easy to fill... I has almost no problems assembling it for the first time (I couldn't figure how to close the water bucket but it was bc I didn't close it hard enough--- I didn't want to break my new machine). An "improvement" but not requirement (and I don't think many people need/ want this) is a spot for decaf beans--- when making after dinner drinks or for those pregnant ladies. I think you would be hard pressed to find that on any machine in this class but it would still be nice. Honestly, I love it! And show it to all that visit our home! Couldn't be happier with my purchase... Worth the money! (and we saved for this).

I've used this machine at work for over 2 years now; well, this espresso machine has been run over 50 times a day and never has failed. Breville BES860XL is simple, easy to operate and maintain machine. Highly recommend.

I have owned 2 other brands of espresso makers. This is by far the best home machine I have seen. Easy to use and makes great drinks. I purchased my machine almost a year ago and have had no problems of any kind.

I purchased an Italian model for my new home recently but it was a built in model and I needed to buy another machine for my latest home. The Breville was far and away superior. I like the multi function, it is a neat looking and compact bench model but best of all it makes a super coffee. A little bit of trial and error on ground size etc but that is all in the fun - the end result is a great coffee. Stylish and user friendly - my wife and I think it's terrific.

Although I bought this product from Bed Bath and Beyond several months back and have been meaning to review it...thought I would at least get it out here. This is my first espresso machine, it's overwhelming researching this type of product and come to a final decision on WHICH one to buy! I took the plunge, mostly because BBB offers great discounts and coupons, so I used my 20% off on this baby! I do love it; the espresso tastes lovely and the steam function works well. I love the fact that the grinder is built in; however, on the flip side I try not to make it a point to buy a product with multiple functions such as this because if one breaks down, you lose the entire unit to repair...but fortunately, all is well! I can make myself the perfect latte or cappuccino, every time. Here are some of the draw backs: You waste a lot of ground coffee; it spills over while grinding. My only other complaint would be that where you put the beans to slide down and be ground isn't very aerodynamic...I find myself having to push them down the chute. But otherwise, I love it! I'm also wondering why you have to use regular water...as instructed, I still use filtered water. Enjoy!
