Why the Breville BES840CBXL Infuser Espresso Machine?

For espresso with a well-balanced flavor, flavor needs to be drawn evenly from all the coffee grinds. What is the best way to prepare the grinds for an even extraction?

Rather than starting with bursts of high pressure, the Breville Infuser Espresso Machine in Cranberry Red starts with steady, low pressure to gently expand the grinds. This helps fills in any cracks, gaps, or irregularities in the coffee puck before full pressure is applied, so even pressure is applied to all parts of the coffee puck and optimal flavor is extracted.

BES840CBXL Features

The BES840CBXL has both automatic features, like temperature settings, and programmable features like volumetric control. The key features that set it apart from other espresso machines in its price range are the pre-infusion technology, the thermocoil heating system, and PID temperature control technology. See chart below for details.

Other helpful features include a cup warmer on the top of the machine and a feature that removes excess water from the filter basket after coffee extraction, so the used grounds form a dry puck for quicker cleanup. The machine goes into 'Sleep Mode' after 1 hour and automatically shuts off after 3 hours. There is extra-tall cup clearance for brewing directly into travel mugs.

Other touches include an ‘Empty Me!’ indicator that lets you know when the removable drip tray is full and a ‘Clean Me’ cleaning alert. The storage tray houses the included accessories. Lastly, all parts that come in contact with water and coffee are BPA free.

Product Features

  1. The 61 fl. oz. (1.8 L) removable water tank is a top-fill tank with a handle. It has a replaceable water filter to reduce impurities and scale.
  2. The 1600W thermocoil heating system circulates the water through a heated coil, heating water ‘on demand’ for better temperature consistency. It also uses PID technology to regulate the temperature.
  3. A 54mm stainless steel portafilter with commercial style spouts and a 54mm tamper are also included for expert tamping control. The tamper is stored magnetically on the machine, but is easily removable for tamping.
  4. The dry puck feature removes excess water from the ground coffee in the filter basket for easy disposal of the coffee puck.
  5. The espresso pressure gauge helps you monitor espresso extraction pressure, so you know whether the espresso is being over- or under-extracted.
  6. The volumetric control functionlets you set shot volumes. Use either the preset volumes or manually over-ride them with your own preferences. Once you figure out what volumes you prefer, you can program it to remain at your customized setting.
  7. The dedicated outlet for instant hot water (for making Americanos, hot chocolate, and for warming cups).
  8. The steam wand is used for effortless milk frothing for making lattes and cappuccinos. It is made of stainless steel and swivels 360 degrees to accommodate different size frothing jugs.
  9. The auto purge function automatically adjusts the temperature of the water used for steaming milk and extracting espresso. The function automatically begins to cool the boiler to the optimal temperature for espresso extraction after using the steam wand.
  10. The removable drip tray is partitioned for both wet and dry spills, with an 'Empty me!' indicator for when it’s full.

After 10 years we had to replace our Solis Crema 90...because of user abuse...let it freeze over the winter and busted the boiler. If it were still made may well have gone back to that machine as it was a great little product. Upgraded to the Rocky Rancilio grinder a few years ago and it really makes a huge difference. Don't blame the espresso machine until you've invested in a grinder of at least this quality. Also general observation...avoid really oily beans...tough on the grinder and the espresso machine.

The Infuser...what a beautiful example of industrial engineering excelllence, features, functions packed into an affordable package. Thermocoil heating with PID, fast accurate water temp. Not programable in spite of what the manual says...that would have been a really great extra. 3 way solenoid...produces dry pucks. Pre-infusion, a high end machine feature..very nice..Water filter...bonus! Clean me light, let's you know when to do the back flush routine. Simple..5 minute drill...decent size water tank, which can be filled without removing and is easy to determine water level. Get in the habit of checking at least every other day. Preprogrammed and programmable shots or manual...what else could you need. Pressure dial on the front absolutely works and may be the most useful feature to help dial in the perfect shot...grind Shouldn't take even the most novice barista much time to be pulling great , grind and tamp all need tp come together..but don't think it gets much easier on on a semi- auto. Frothing is great with wand...perhaps not the fastest but with a little practice am able to produce as good or better product than cafe bought milk bevvies. Rich hot micro foam. Tool drawer is innovative and useful,drip tray works great...

I used to work in a coffee shop where we had a heavy-duty machine. I became very used to making espresso with the kind of semi-automatic machine we had, the ones where you have to do some of the work to get it right, but some things are also taken care of for you (mainly the water disbursement is pre-measured for brewing espresso). I wanted to find the "at home" version of that espresso machine. I think I found it w the Breville Infuser!

Here is what I was looking for:

- a machine where I place the grinds myself in the portafilter and control the strength of the tamper.

- a machine that will dispense a specific amount of hot water to brew the espresso (I didn't want a machine where I had to press on then off when brewing the espresso). It's great that it's programmable, but the default settings already programmed in the machine are the standards for espresso, so I would recommend experimenting with the size of your coffee grind, the amount of coffee placed in the portafilter, and the strength of the tamper before playing with the measure of water.

- a machine that can make a perfect espresso: constructed of a small dark brown/almost-black heart, spice brown body, and medium-caramel coloured crema. The crema can tend to be too light and the heart too thick and overpowering with at-home machines, but not this one!

- I had to play around with it, and it took a while to get the perfect espresso, but that's the fun for me! I had to find the perfect grind for the machine, and made a notch on my grinder when I finally found it. I had to play with the exact quantity of coffee as well.

This Breville is a well-designed semi-automatic machine that makes very good espresso at a reasonable price. It works well with the higher-priced Breville burr grinders. This is a good choice for fairly serious espresso drinkers because the machine is easy to use, comes with a good manual, and includes a few automatic features. Really serious baristas might demand more control over the process. Like any espresso machine, it takes some time to get the right coffee grind fineness and compaction to get a good espresso shot. The machine is attractive and easy to clean. I have owned the machine for just one month, so I cannot comment on durability. My last espresso machine (an Italian-made Lelit) lasted 3 years before it broke down.

I upgraded from a Breville Cafe Roma Espresso Machine. I hope the Infuser lasts as long. My Cafe Roma has been in use steady for over 10 years. Based on my consumption rate, and that I make espresso-based drinks for almost anybody who arrives at my house, I made about 14,000 shots on that machine. It was time to upgrade.

The milk frother is much faster and drier than my Cafe Roma. Frothing the same amount of milk took 65 seconds before, and under 40 seconds with the Infuser. The Infuser puts less water into the milk. This means creamier results with better body when making Cappuccinos or Lattés. This machine already justifies 5 stars.

The pressure dial allows me to continually improve/adjust for what beans, grinder, and tamp I have used. I have two grinders for regular and decaf. I never put the same beans in a hopper twice in a row. I like experimenting and variety. I also try every bean as a Cappuccino (my preference), Latte, Americano, and straight shot. Can you say obsessive? My therapist can.

The one-shot and two-shot buttons are convenient. I like being able to program the amount of water that is pushed for each. Minor detail that I get a very different amount of espresso depending on beans or tamp pressure. The higher my extraction pressure, the less espresso I get in my cup (generally). This is a significant difference (granted that is between over-extracted and under-extracted).

I like the instant hot-water spout for Americanos, but I was hoping I could get hotter water for making tea for my wife. Straight water temp tends to be about 79degrees C.
