The Bottom Line
Breville's least expensive machine with a pressure gauge, the Infuser gives you more control over extraction and steaming than both the Duo-Temp and Bambino models for less than Breville's Barista series machines.

Breville Cafe Roma ESP8XL

Breville Cafe Roma ESP8XL
Overall Rating: 85
An inexpensive entry-level espresso machine from Breville, the ESP8XL Cafe Roma is a serviceable model most notable for its durability. But you'll need to upgrade for more consistent extraction and better foam.

Breville Barista Express BES870

Breville Barista Express BES870
Overall Rating: 90
An excellent machine for both novices and intermediates, the Breville Barista Express BES870 has everything a home barista needs: integrated grinder, 360º swivel frother, Temp Control, and more. All it needs...is you.

Breville Dual Boiler BES920

Breville Dual Boiler BES920
Overall Rating: 92
Breville's least expensive machine with dual boilers, the aptly-named Dual Boiler with PID temp control lets you extract/steam simultaneously for faster milk-based beverages but lacks the HX steam boiler of the Oracles.
About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
