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 tamp..coffee. Shouldn't take even the most novice barista much time to be pulling great shots...coffee , 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...Read more ›
First off, In Canada I bought a refurbished Breville Infuser machine in early August 2015 and there was a production date sticker on the unit labeled Dec 2014. It was stamped as version 1215F; the version is indented into the plastic, not labeled or inked, and is hard to see (on my machines the indentation was near the UL listing).
Second, I returned the refurbished unit after 3 weeks and bought in Canada a new Breville Infuser in late August that was stamped as version 1428F. This version gets 4 stars. I mostly remove a star because of the ambiguous pressure gauge, hard to find parts and my machine doesn't do the 3 beeps as it's supposed to on the cleaning cycle (though it performs the cleaning cycle; bad QA on Breville's part, tsk tsk). It receives an additional star above the refurbished unit due to the hotter temperature which I monitored to be within the Certified Italian Espresso Temperature guidelines consistently; which stipulates that the drink in the cup must be 67°C ± 3°C. The refurbished machine measured consistently around 60°C ± 2°C. Remember to preheat your cup and thermometer for these results; placing both under tap of hot running water is one way to preheat them. Also note that the temperature will quickly drop so the highest value is the one that counts. Finally, don't forget that the newer versions permit you to increase the temperature if needed.
Overall, I recommend this machine and enjoy the espressos and short Americanos. I mostly order espressos or short Americanos at cafes. I had an entry level Krups Espresso machine for years.
Most important warning is that there are multiple versions of this machine.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
