Great coffee and long lasting with some minor flaws to work around


I've had my ESP8C for almost 6 years used twice a day (for 10 months of the year) and it still makes great coffee. I have some dislikes like other reviewers: - The water is too hot after machine first warms up, but this can be used to preheat the...

Really great machine - "you control the action!"


grind fine and tamp well, just purge the initial water out of the group head (which will be a little hot) before attaching the portafilter. Then do a short manual pre-brew (about 3 secs), let it stand for another 5 secs, and then run for about 8...

Very good buy!


I got a machine in 2004(Breville Cafe Roma ESP8XL) and it now just died! I once compare same brand of coffee with my sister $3000 coffee machine (other brand) and we both agreed that my machine this one made a better coffee! Now I am on the market for...

Water Leaking


Water leaking under the machine and also under the water collection tray, makes for water over the counter every day. Have returned the unit, still not fixed, not impressed with the service. Too bad as the coffee is good, not a quality product....

10 years of great coffees.


We've had this for 10 years and the pump has just karked it but i will go to the ends of the earth to get a replacement part. I LOVE the coffees this machine makes. One of the best buys I've made and has saved me thousands over the years.

I got a refurbishment and have had it fot almost 6 years. Works a treat. A bit of practice to get the coffee you like, but it's really good!

Super machine!


is better. So I conclude that you should buy a cheap and reliable machine from Breville, or get a fully functioning brain. The only difference from great shop coffee is slightly better frothed milk and crème. My machine has made in excess of 7,000...

We bought one of these years ago after reading a good review of it. The day that one died after several years of multiple use everyday, we went out and bought another one. Great coffee, fabulous crema. Easy to use. Easy to put water in, unlike many...

I got this second hand from a bed and breakfast, so I wasn't worried at the time if it would work well or not. After making a fair few coffees with this machine, I have to say I'm very impressed! The machine is easy to use, and makes great coffee. I...

Works well, simple

Great machine


I was given this machine by a friend after it had been used to make coffees for a church group for several years and had stopped working. I replaced the pump and it has been utterly reliable ever since (I've been using it daily for over two years now)....

Brews consistently good coffee
