Breville Espresso Machines

Breville makes a line of low to mid (maybe high-mid) espresso machines that range anywhere from just over a hundred dollars to just over $500 dollars - give or take. They aren't the most glamorous espresso machines in the world but if you give them a chance, you might just be surprised.

Breville also makes a line of conical Burr Grinders and related accessories that are top of the line with price tags to match!

The Company:

Somewhere around 1932 in Melbourne Australia a couple of characters decided to mix their names together and form a company. The two men were Bill O'Brien and Harry Norville (O'Brien-Norville...Breville...get it?) And the company they formed began by making radios, not coffee machines or espresso machines! In 1977 or so, the company had switched focus away from radios and invented a sandwich toaster of all things!

Years went by and other inventions ensued and while the company continues to be headquartered in Australia, its products are sold all over the world as I'm sure you are aware of! We don't really care about any of that, we're here for espresso machines and that is what I'm going to talk about today.

Before I do that though, I would like to spend a moment to list the contact information for the company in case you ever want to contact them for any reason whatsoever, be it for support or with a specific product question.

Ok! So with that fun stuff out of the way, let's get back to the espresso!

Breville Espresso Machines

Basically we're looking at three or four main models:

  • Breville ESP6SXL Cafe Modena Espresso Machine - $150-$250
  • Breville ESP8XL Cafe Roma Stainless Espresso Maker - $300
  • Breville 800ESXL Commercial 15-Bar Triple-Priming Die-Cast Espresso Machine - $525
  • Breville Barista Express BES860XL machine with grinder - $600

As you can see, they range in prices from around $150 to around $600 and the models have increasing sophistication and features as their prices go up, as you would expect. You can read about each of these main models specifically further ahead in this website, but I'm not going to go into detail right now because I want to give you more of a broad overview of the different options you can expect before getting bogged down in specifics.

By far the most popular of these machines is the Breville 800ESXL for $525, followed closely by the Breville Barista Express BES860XL at $600. The other two cheaper models have not been very well received and many people who owned the cheaper models have complained of numerous problems and given them very low (or negative) reviews.

So in my opinion if you're going to go with Breville, be sure to spend a few extra dollars to get the higher-end machines or don't bother with them at all if you can't afford 500+ dollars for an espresso machine.

Breville has been around for 80+ years but they are not a company that focuses solely on espresso machine and for my money I like to stick with the companies who only focus on one thing and one thing well. Will you be okay with a Breville machine? Probably so! So if you have your eye set on a specific espresso maker by Breville, then by all means go for it!
