    This price is amazing - got this for 500 the other week.

    I believe the heading should reflect the price of $493.24 which includes the 5% off coupon code but not the discounted egift cards since they’re not available to everyone.

    Great price. One tip, if you like the look get the black or red version. The enamel is heaps easier to clean and doesn't stain like the steel can. Our black machine still looks new after 2 years.

      Did you have a problem with the Stainless? I have one at home which is pristine 3 years later. Also one in my office which has been abused by 20 staff constantly still cleans up pretty well also.

      Agree, I’ve got the black too and it looks great. I felt the silver looked a bit cheap, especially in the bits that are plastic. Black sits on my bench top like a boss. Also, fantastic coffee machine, I love my morning coffee ritual using it.

    Worth looking at the Barista Pro under the same deal. Still overpriced at $684, but more reasonable than it usually is, and 3sec heatup time.

    •  

      Difference between the Barista Pro and this 870 model?

      •  

        Basically https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtOb_QtNRVM

        3 seconds to reach temp means you aren't waiting around

        •  

          I’m looking at the upgraded model too. Faster warm up, more settings via LCD for grind seem worth it - time is money!

        • +1 vote

          Sorry but 3sec heat up time is BS.
          There is no way everything would be upto optimal temperature in such a short amount of time. Portafilter for example won't be upto temperature.

          •  

            @keejoonc: Probably constantly reheating while idle…to give that extra sting in the tail for your next electricity quarter bill.

          •  

            @keejoonc: You're right, but having the hot water up to temperature lets you run a shot or two through the portafilter to heat it up much faster. Seriously speaking, some people prefer sour coffee anyway - so it's up to personal preference.

          I have the 870 for over a year now and I find the machine is usually ready before I am. I'll start machine up, by the time I've ground up the coffee, poured water into container, poured milk into the jug, its already up-to temperature even in the middle of winter.

          "Slow" as it may, I'm still the bottleneck :)

            @BargainKen: That's my exact experience, I've never ever thought to myself in 2 years "damn this thing is taking too long". Usually by the time I have my cup out of the cupboard and have ground the coffee the machine is already waiting for me.

  •  

    How does this compare to the delonghi mag S machine selling for around $600 ?

    Is it Ozbargain's favourite machine?

      I think duel boiler would take that crown lol

      •  

        On a price performance ratio though?

      • +1 vote

        The dual boiler gets heaps of up votes and so does the smart grinder which you need with it. This model comes with a great grinder built in, so I think it comes down to total cost but for me, also bench top real estate. I don’t have room for the grinder so this machine reins supreme!

    Damn, I picked this up on Myer eBay the other day and it hasn't even shipped yet, now this is cheaper and in stock close to home!

    •  

      You can return the Myer one when it gets delivered to your local store if you don't mind the hassle.

      I couldn't wait so I'm going to take that route.

    Anyone know if it's worth waiting it out for the BES920 instead? I know the BES920 is a dual boiler so would be handy for early mornings before work…

    • +2 votes

      The dual boiler doesn't necessarily speed things up. It's got a decent rumble to it whilst heating up and in reality, steaming whilst brewing might save you about 20 seconds, if that.

      Not to mention, the heat up times aren't blazing fast either.

      Source: I had one for 4 years.

      If you have to ask this question, it's likely you don't need dual boiler.

    Just fyi these were $400 for red one and $430 for silver or black on black Friday.

  •  

    $683 for the barista pro before gift card savings. And you get the barista kit for free from breville instead of the beans. https://promotions.breville.com.au/2019-barista-gift-pack

  •  

    I'm tossing up between this and the Bambino Plus. Looks a good deal on this one though (especially with the beans)

  •  

    I couldn't justify spending any more than $600 on a machine, so I got this one about 8 months ago for $560 with free beans. Love it. No issues so far. I still buy the P&R beans too. They're heaps more bold compared to the medium roast, velvety ones we use at work. Only thing is I live alone and beans go stale before I get to use them all, but stale beans are still good for iced lattes, I find.

      If you've got a bit of spare time up your sleeve and are a bit of a keen hobbyist, I'd recommend buying green beans (from Coffee Snobs) and roasting them yourself with a popcorn popper. I would think for a week's worth of beans you'd probably only need to spend about 20 minutes per week roasting. I go through around 200-250g per week and only need to spend half an hour on a Saturday roasting.

      You get a very nice result, and you shouldn't have beans going stale before you can use them because you can control how much you roast!

      Also - get a popcorn popper for $5 or less from Cashies or an oppe shop.

      •  

        @elib, keen to know more. Specially the popcorn popper part. Would love to roast my own coffee. Can you elaborate?

        • +1 vote

          Hey mate, so I've been able to get a number of popcorn poppers from cashies or oppies for anywhere between $3 and $7 each. I've had a few die on me, but I get a decent amount of use out of them beforehand. Any popcorn popper should be fine… breville, black and decker, target. Some will last longer than others, but you just get one and give it a shot.

          You can only do a small-ish handful of beans at a time in a popper, but generally a roast will only take about 5 minutes. So for 200-250 grams of freshly roasted coffee you might be looking at 6 loads, which would be 30 minutes all up. I speed this up slightly by running two poppers at once.

          If when you put the green beans in the popper and they don't rotate you need to stir them with something like a wooden spoon until they start rotating by themselves. If you leave them just sitting in the bottom, not spinning around I think they'll burn pretty badly.

          After 5-10 minutes you should start to hear cracking. Have a look at the colour of the beans and if it looks right to you, get them out and put them into a container of some sort - just be careful because they'll be stinkin hot. Trial and error! I haven't had any real issues at all though, just some beans taste slightly nicer than others.

          A good all-rounder bean I've found on the Coffee Snobs website is Elephant Hills AA. https://beanbay.coffeesnobs.com.au/ViewProduct.aspx/493-indi...

          Message me if you want more info? Although I'm not sure how the messaging system works on here and if you'll actually be able to message me.

          •  

            @elib: Hey mate, thanks for the detailed reply. I have ordered 2 popcorn makers from Target and will order 2.5 kgs of Elephant Hills AA. That should be enough for me to practice :) I will message you. Cheers

      Just buy 250 gram bags. I drink coffee alone also in my house. That last me about 2 weeks.

    Is it time I replace my 2014 OzB coffee machine (squashed grouphead seals, the hot water tap that I never use makes "noises", otherwise kicking along fine!)
    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/147870

    •  

      I got the same one! Had to get it fixed a couple of years ago, and has just started to leak around the grouphead. How does the Barista Express and the Barista Pro compare?

      •  

        Pro: Has an integrated grinder (so I can put new 500g bag in my smart grinder, and have some random beans in the integrated hopper).
        Con: It appears to be a tiny domestic-sized group head (which matters to me - I use the double shot basket).

        If my machine needed fixing now I'd be all over this deal. It's not broken… yet… though. At 5.5 years old with daily usage it's a matter of time.

        •  

          Or just repair the broken part when the time comes (assuming you like your existing machine). Works out cheaper (in most cases).

  •  

    How does this compare to this $370 machine on amazon?

    Excellent price.

  •  

    Can't get C&C to work?

    •  

      Try using Internet Explorer. Wouldn't work on chrome for me but IE worked fine.

      •  

        Got it to work a little later in the day (on Chrome)… dunno why? It was the same for a Sony TV a bought; the KD85x9500G wouldn't allow delivery (nearest C&C was Adelaide) but then it did allow later on.

        Ended up buying in-store at my local anyway; online didn't show any stock near-by.

  •  

    Does JB sell the black version? Wanting this over silver, can't see it on their website so guessing no.

  •  

    I missed the recent dealon the 920… Do I cave and get the 878 or wait for another deal on the 920?

  •  

    I like how the Breville are put together, but until they go to a standardised portafilter and E61 grouphead/58mm portafilter across the board, I won't be buying another one.

    Not being able to chop and change accessories is a (materialistic) deal breaker for me. One of the main reasons I moved my dual boiler on, that and bench real estate relative to some euro models. That and I feel the consistency of an E61/larger portafilter just yields better consistency.

    •  

      Many brands (model depending) are not 58mm portafilter, not just Breville. Know what you mean though
      The other thing with Breville supplied Tamper is that it needs to be 0.5cm wider to fit properly (again I suppose Breville are not the only culprits for poor fitting supplied tampers).

      •  

        Oh yes, of course, well aware of that. It seems to be across more of the entry level machines but the prices Breville are asking, they're no longer really an entry level machine when you can get an entry level euro for same/similar money. I know where I'd prefer my money to (now) go.

        Moreso just an observation across brands as it formed part of my research when I decided to move on the dual boiler and explore other options.

        I find that I've deemed the Breville(s) as good stepping stones and the turning point at which people will either downsize (too labour intensive) or upgrade to a euro (love the experience).

        What do you currently use if you don't mind me asking?

        • +1 vote

          Have a Lelit (PL41TEMD), Breville (860) and a Sunbeam…..all single boilers. All were free (dumped by people with too much money). All work well and give decent Expresso's. I rotate them for pure interest.

  •  

    How quickly do the Suncorp benefits gift cards come through?

  •  

    Is this valid for 5 days or 24h? I was looking at the Beville barista touch, beville 878 and the Delonghi La specialist. I'm still not sure which is best.

    The touch is nice because of the easy frothing. The 878 is nicer than the 870 and that the only reason i looked at it as its cheaper than the touch but frothing isn't as convenient.

    The delongi is nicer on the cleaness and tamping but not sure how good the frother is. I heard the manual on beville is better..

  •  

    Thanks OP. Bought in-store at local. Wonder how long the validation on the beans takes?

  •  

    Has anyone found the serial and batch number for one of these (for the purposes of product registration/warranty. I've looked on the bottom of the machine which has a label but no numbers)?

  •  

    Orderd a silver one then fround they gave me a Cranberry colour after open the box. Don't want to waste time to pack up again and change. lol
