I walked into JB Hifi the other day and found out the manufacturer is restricting the BES920, he walked me through what each code meant in...

Walking into a store then asking for your money back, is there something I'm missing?
06/07/2022 - 11:09
r/espresso then go down the rabbit hole.... you won't stick with a machine like this for long
04/07/2022 - 12:44
If you're looking at a small footprint machine a Breville Bambino Plus is a much more appealing option I got TGG one at the beginning of...

Highly doubt it at that price, no mention of heating method at all in the specifications

Last year the smart grinder pro could be had for under $200, seems the sales are very seldom now

The lower end Sunbeams cheap out on the group handle, it's aluminium. It is bad for thermal stability
05/03/2021 - 16:47
The way the bambino plus works is you need to set the jug down on the drip tray, it does not swirl at all but it has two definitive 'modes'...

The overflow system in the Breville would do that, I don't think the EM6910 has that
05/03/2021 - 14:06
This just sounds like an integrated grinder version of the bambino plus, as what you've described are most of the features of it. The only...

Would be interested to know if these came with both sets of baskets, as the single wall basket has given me alot better quality coffee....
26/01/2021 - 12:09
Because there's two layers of the basket, you need to run a blank shot afterward to flush out the gunk inside. Would also pay to run a...

I did notice the group itself was aluminium, is there a replacement group you can buy from another machine this would fit? I'm presuming...

I've never seen A2 used in a cafe, there might be something in it as the protein is what's meant to break down for froth
29/12/2020 - 13:09
I think Breville did put some extra tech into the milk frothing of the Bambino, the milk wand has 4 holes in it and has significant...

Alot better, it's basically the dual boiler with some extra smarts
27/12/2020 - 11:56
Even though it looks expensive, this machine is probably the best of both worlds. That's taking into account that you won't use the second...

Lower price means they changed a few things to meet that lower price point, the group is aluminium for one
26/12/2020 - 11:43
I am pretty sure I saw one of the EM5300's earlier in the week, it has an aluminium group which if you compare with a chromed one that the...

For anyone interested in the smart grinder pro, it's at the fairly normal price of 199 at JB Hifi -...

Seems they don't deliver to VIC :(
25/12/2020 - 19:14
The auto frothing is rather nice :)
18/12/2020 - 21:17
Must be some design difference, the Bambino has 4 and it steams really quick. Probably the thermoblock design
03/12/2020 - 18:10
I paired a smart grinder pro with a cheap bambino earlier this year, good starter kit to get the hang of everything and has alot better...
28/11/2020 - 23:59
I wouldn't go the second option, it's not in the same league at all. The internals of the coffee machine matters, no matter how good your...
28/11/2020 - 21:51
You're comparing two different products, the dual boiler has a 58mm group versus the 54mm group on the barista pro. Having the jet warm up...
25/11/2020 - 23:11
Assuming you mean using a decent carbon filter? Or is it something else?
23/11/2020 - 16:58
There's quite a bit of difference between the Express and Bambino and this. 54mm Group head versus 58mm, temperature control are two...
23/11/2020 - 13:24
I would highly recommend it, the double walled basket is a very bad idea if you don't want to burn your coffee. The flavour profile is...
