Review: Breville Coffee Machines

For many of us, a good cup of coffee is the perfect way to start the day, but with so many choices out there, it’s hard to determine what the best solution for your lifestyle might be. This thought led us on a bit of a hunt to find exciting new coffee brands to explore. One of the coffee brands we recently stumbled onto is Breville, a company with a range of elegant choices in machines, each providing unique features, tailored to the various needs of coffee drinkers around the world. We took some time to explore their machines, considering important factors influencing whether they are a good choice to make when you’re thinking about picking up a new baby for the house, or office or for a special someone.

More About Breville

Initially founded 87 years ago, Breville is a well-established brand, not only in its native Australia, but across the world. They provide a range of kitchen products in over 70 countries, regularly tailoring their product ranges based on consumer insights and feedback. It’s clear that they are a modern, forward-facing company, with intentions to make life easier for their customers. Definitely a check for us in this department, including noting how speedily they came back to one of our requests for information about a product (always a good sign)!

Types of Coffee Machines Made by Breville

These days, there are so many types of coffee machines to choose from. We got to spend time with a couple of products related to what these guys are most known and highly recommended for online: coffee press, drip coffee, espresso or fine drip/pour over solution. If any of these tickle your fancy, it’s worth looking at Breville’s range of options in these areas. 

The Good & The Bad: Reviewing the Breville Coffee Machine Range

The Good:

Breville’s range of espresso machines, coffee makers and grinders are a good choice if you’re looking to make gourmet-style coffee at home. In terms of design, style, and price, they’re competitive in all three aspects, when making a comparison to what competitors are offering. If you’re a newbie in the espresso game, for example, it ticks all the boxes (and it is easy to see why this is a popular area for them), as the machines are easy to use, clean and they look stylish as well.

The Bad

: When buying a Breville machine, it isn’t a “plug and play” solution to coffee making. This is not the kind of machine that you operate without first consulting an instruction manual; luckily, the manual is very detailed, and easy to get the hang of. On another note, their machines tend to be a little bulkier as the price increases, although it’s worth mentioning that this is part of what allows for them to add extras which, ultimately make for a more enjoyable brewing experience. 

Overall Impressions

Choosing a coffee machine doesn’t need to be a tedious process, and you can do it in a way that gives you the kind of machine that suits your lifestyle at home, or even boosts company culture at work. From the products we got to explore, Breville offers a great range of machines, tailored to a variety of uses. Aside from some of the higher-end machines being more clunky, their ranges are hard to criticize – something which is also evident when browsing through reviews of their products online. Breville gets a bit YAY from us today, and is worth a follow if you’d like to keep up to date with the latest trends in the coffee trends as well.
