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 ›
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.Read more ›
