It has several light indicators, buttons and the Espresso pressure gauge that is located in the middle of the control panel. All these buttons and controls make it easy for people to use the machine, especially beginners. When people are new to brewing coffee, they usually prefer to have a machine that has a simple interface and that would not require a lot of technical learning. This category of people should definitely consider this coffee maker as an option.
2. Perfect For Espresso
This coffee maker is one of the best machines available in the market to brew espresso. Even though the machine is small, yet it will produce the most delicious espresso for you and your family. There are two various methods of brewing coffee with the help of this machine. You can either choose the pre-set single or dual shot extraction buttons that will allow you to choose your own volume extraction, or you can wait and manually stop the shot when you think that it is ready for extraction. Each shot will be exactly the same and will be prepared in less than a minute.
3. Easy To Clean
Like every other machine, it is essential that you clean this machine as well. The Breville Infuser Espresso Machine is easy to clean. Whenever your machine will require cleaning it will display the 'Clean Me' light that will indicate the cleaning cycle. Along with the cleaning cycle, you also have to go through the decalcifying process. This process will help you in preventing your machine from any kind of mineral build-up. It is also essential that you clean your filter baskets, steam wand, drip tray, portafilter and the cup warming tray.
As far as durability is concerned, the Breville Infuser Espresso machine is among the top models. Most of this coffee maker’s exterior is made up of stainless steel that is sturdy and is a much durable choice for a machine that is going to be used a lot. It also has an upgrade to a thermocoil system which ensures that the machine is going to perform well for a long time. Some machines have the thermoblock system that does not get hot enough and leads to replacement. Some people have to invest in a new machine because of this issue.
1. No Water Level Gauge
The machine has a huge water reservoir that allows you to store 61 ounce of water. Since the water tank is large enough, you do not require refilling it again and again. This saves a lot of time as you can brew multiple cups of coffee in a single refill. Despite all these benefits, there is a drawback. The machine does not have a water level gauge on the front panel. This makes it difficult for the consumers to find out the amount of water left in the tank. Due to the lack of the water level gauge, they will have to check the water tank time and again to figure out the remaining quantity.
2. Slow Frothing Wand
The Breville Infuser Espresso comes with a frothing wand that helps you create latte drinks and froth milk. This will help you create café style coffee at your home without having to pay any extra amounts. However, the frothing wand works a little slower than various other machines. The tip of this wand is flat which will become a reason for the buildup of old milk. However, overall the machine is a good investment and it will sustain in your kitchen for a long period of time.
