Mine was shipped today, as promised. We'll wait and see what the roast date is. :)

This post says: > OzBargain's favourite espresso machine manufacturer, Breville I am pointing out this _isn't_ Breville.

I mean it isn't a _terrible_ coffee machine. Some people in the US _like_ Mr Coffee. But it is no Breville.
12/10/2021 - 14:15
That looks surprisingly similar to other brands. :) https://www.amazon.com.au/Mr-Coffee-One-Touch-CoffeeHouse-Cappuccino/dp/B07CJ3CYF7 I...

I own the BES860. If I was buying today, I'd buy either the Bambino Plus or the Barista Touch (or _maybe_ a secondhand Oracle) - since they...

For occasional users, get the Bambino Plus and a separate grinder.

Aldi beans have the roast date on them, in reverse. So find the one with the most recent date on them.
09/10/2021 - 18:29
The Dual Boiler is definitely a better machine, but the trade off is you lose the in built grinder. The steps on the Barista Pro make it...

That is likely why it works for you. Double wall baskets are looked down upon by espresso enthusiasts, partly because they don't require...

Are you using a pressurised (double wall) basket?
23/09/2021 - 11:39
I am not an aficionado - I don't like coffee, but make it for my wife. I've bought it from Coles, Aldi and a variety of roasters (e.g....

No. The Express lacks auto milk texturing and lacks preprogrammed coffee drinks. And the Express lacks the thermojet (i.e. slightly slower...

What grinder do you have (so we can point you at the best options for a dosing ring)?
05/09/2021 - 21:38
A naked portafilter is a completely different thing.

Nice work finding a cheaper one. The one I linked doesn't seem loose to me, but maybe it will over time.

If you buy this item, check out https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002566147929.html - worth buying to avoid wastage.
