Almost 10 years ago I bought my Expobar Office Pulser. It was my first REAL espresso machine and it has served me very well. I use it every day. One problem is that it is big and heavy. When we go to our fishing cabin I have to suffer with an old one cup device with no frothed milk. Solution: Much like me, my old Pulser is not as pretty as used to be, so now I've purchased a new Expobar Office ... read more

Bought this machine over a year ago despite reading all the posts by doubters about the questionable "realiability" of Breville machines. I'm SO glad I did. I have zero reliability concerns with this machine - it's worked perfectly since day one (and by the way Breville's customer service is awesome should you ever need to call them).

I have had this machine for a week, and I have to say that I am absolutely in love!!! It took me a little bit to find the right grind size, and amount of expresso. Another thing that I found out is: to brewed to perfecto expressso the pression needs to up to sertain range. To achive this you need to purchase a very fresh coffee. Not older than 30 days after being rosted. !!!! I After I got the ... read more

Highly recommend, I was looking for more of a super-automatic machine. I wanted a machine, that would be simple to use for our mornings. Our previous espresso machine was a Rancilio Silvia. So it took some time in the morning to get everything made and out the door. We looked at many super-automatics and the price for what we wanted was a bit out of our budget. We ended up calling into sale ... read more
