Bottom Line: This machine really looks and feels like a quality piece of equipment. This is why I'm so sad that it hasn't lived up to my expectations.

Product Reviewed: Breville Espresso Maker
Bottom Line: Well-built. Delivers adequate, but not great espresso.  Good all-around for price range. If perfection is a must, go elsewhere.

Elias Amador (quality: 6.4) 12.08.2006 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: It looks great on the outside, and it might satisfy people who drink mostly milk drinks, but it doesn't have what it takes to make real espresso.
WholeLatte Roast (quality: 6.3) 10.27.2006 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Beautiful-Solid-Friendly- Excellent for Cappas, not good for Golden Rule Espresso.
