Overall Rating (based on customer reviews): 4.9 out of 5 stars
The Breville BES900XL Espresso Machine is one of the most popular and highest quality machines on the market. With dual stainless steel boilers and dual Italian pumps, it delivers perfect coffee, at the ideal temperature, with a unique double pressure system. We also love the look! With a full 15 bars pressure at the full brew, the machine provides a low-pressure pre-infusion to ensure that the maximum flavor is extracted from the coffee. The temperature control is accurate to within 1 degree of the ideal! It can also simultaneously steam the milk, without temperature loss for the espresso brewing side. This is a superior machine for a budding barista who wants to make professional standard coffee at home. At the very top of the Breville range, it holds more water and beans than the others in the range, and of course, has the unique double boiler system.

What do customers NOT like about the machine?
- The programming, in the beginning, can be a bit fiddly, but once done to your satisfaction, you can save and forget.
- When brewing many cups of coffee, it is important to dry the outside of the portafilter to prevent it from popping out under pressure.
