Breville BES840XL the Infuser Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine from www.wholelattelove.com

Breville BES840XL the Infuser Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine is a superbly engineered appliance with graceful lines and expertly crafted fit and finish. The designers at Breville have incorporated the best features that an espresso machine requires and fine tuned those features to give you an affordable luxury that is robust, beautiful, and produces wonderful espresso.

 
Breville BES840XL the Infuser Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine pre-infuses grounds in the portafilter from www.wholelattelove.com

Starting with essential pre-infusion to wet and expand the grounds gently a few seconds before high pressure brewing the BES840XL has it spot-on. Pre-infusion releases the full flavor of the bean.

 

The 15 bar Italian pump forces brewing water through an energy efficient Integrated stainless steel water coil where a 1600W thermocoil, managed by an electronic PID temperature control for increased temperature stability, heats the water to critically precise brewing temperature for excellent extraction of everything your coffee has to offer.

 
Breville
 

The one-piece aluminum thermo coil is cast around a coil of stainless steel tubing wound around a coiled ceramic-coated electrical heating element. The one-piece thermo-coil is a major improvement over the previous 2 piece thermo-block designs.

The Stainless steel 360° swivel-action steam wand stands ready to steam and froth your milk to turn your espresso shot into a latte or cappuccino. A purge function then automatically adjusts water temperature after using steam for optimal espresso extraction temperature for the next shot. A separate spout next to the steam wand delivers hot water on demand for tea or hot chocolate.

Hal asked:

Does this machine have pressure reducing pin like the Gaggia machines? If not, why not?

Answer by Louis-Jordan:

Thank you for your question. This machine does not use the pin, because the pressurized baskets are styled slightly differently. The frothing pin is required by the Gaggia baskets, because the coffee comes out at a high velocity, so the pin is needed to slow the coffee down. The baskets for the...

Answer by Hal:

Thank you!

I have been using the Breville BES840XL for two months now. I usually make a two double shots espresso every morning and my roomate does the same. More than half the time the pressure is too high though. However, I follow the instructions, i.e. I use the simple wall with my own grinded espresso...

Robert asked:

I am using a Breville BES840XL since I gave my Gaggia Classic to my daughter. I can always get a single shot right in the proper range but no matter how hard I try I cannot get the same result with the double shot, double wall basket. I use Lavazza Black preground. The double shot always stays...

Answer by mjackson:

Try using more coffee, I am not sure what else would cause your problem. Also how much are you brewing you should try to brew about 2.5 to 3 ounces for a double shot,

Scott asked:

I'm looking at getting a semi automatic machine. I'm trying to decide on this BES840XL or the BES860XL Barista Express. Basicly because they are in my price point and have several cool features. I have read that the 840 has a thurmocoil instead of a Thermoblock. Is this true for the whole product...

Answer by A:

Scott,

The "Thermocoil" is just a specific name for a kind of Thermoblock boiler. It's a different design with the same outcome as the 860. Both machines work well, and the built in grinder in the 860 is a cool feature. If you are planning on doing more than Espresso however, the SmartGrinder...

Answer by Hal:

I don't  have any experience with the breville grinder so I can't say whether it is a good match with the 940.

My personal preference is for a separate grinder because there are usally compromises that have to be made when it included in the machine. The operationn of both the basic machine...
