The 4 keys formula for third wave specialty coffee at home:
- Rich, full flavour
- Perfectly balanced taste
- Irresistible body
- Silky, velvety mouthfeel
The 4 keys formula for third wave specialty coffee at home.
1. Rich, full flavour
Full-bodied coffee with rich and complex flavours is created using the right dose of 19-22g of freshly ground beans. This dose allows the coffee to fully express the incredible aroma, intense flavours and distinctive character of the coffee, for a true cafe quality result. Anything less than the optimal dose results in a weak and watery taste experience.
2. Perfectly balanced taste
Sweet, delicious and nuanced flavour notes begin with precise control over water temperature. Digital temperature control (PID) technology precisely controls water temperature for a perfectly balanced coffee extraction, giving you the control and consistency for delicious tasting coffee every time.
3. Irresistible body
An opulent, creamy and caramel-coloured espresso starts with low pressure pre-infusion that soaks the grinds, allowing water to pass evenly through the coffee during the high pressure (9 bar) extraction process, delivered via our 15 bar Italian pump. This results in a rich, sweet and viscous espresso.
4. Silky, velvety mouthfeel
Savour the silky taste and velvety mouthfeel of true microfoam milk. The milk is steamed with pressure that creates thousands of tiny bubbles, enhancing flavour and mouthfeel, while the temperature brings out the milk’s sweetness, exciting your taste buds, for a harmonious blend of rich, sweet milk and syrupy, golden espresso.

I didn't want to force a new hobby onto my family, so I wanted something they could use, I would be happy with and didn't take up much space. And this is a surprisingly competent machine and has some nice features if you're not an enthusiast.
It's super fast to get ready to brew from cold, the water tank is transparent and on the outside (oh how I wish high end espresso machines would adopt that design feature), auto steaming, and a little warning buoy that tells you when you need to clear the drip tray.
You get the normal problems with a pressurised basket. But the extraction tastes fine, it just won't wow you ever. You might do a better job with a single walled basket. But I don't intend on teaching my family to dial the grind in.
The auto steaming on this is quite impressive. I tried it with soy milk and quite frankly it's far better than my first attempts at texturing soy. It's actually quite passable.
A couple of problems: it's so light and the recommended dose is far too high. I had to play around to find a technique to lock in the handle without the machine moving (it can be done) and you really want to dose about 14-15gr. It says 19, but that would overflow the double basket.
But still impressive what they did in such a small machine.
The Bambino Plus seems like a great entry point but the limitations are way too many for someone trying to get into the espresso hobby.
First step order the appropriate filter basket and portafilter which allows you to properly extract coffee from all your grounds appropriately and time your shots.
Second step you have to remove the tamper, get your own leveller and tamper so you can consistently prepare your puck.
Third step realise all the excellent gear is made for the standard 58mm portafilters rather than Breville's proprietary size.
Fourth step realise you can't adjust brew temperatures when you have beans that need some extra help pull the best shot.
The milk frother is 10/10 ease of use and consistent however makes a mess when it auto cleans itself.
The whole unit is too light you cannot put the protafilter into the brewing position easily until you've flushed a shot through the system (which you're going to want to do as the temperature in the group head is usually too hot meaning your shot time will be faster thane expected.
You can program all your shots but I never do I always end up pre-infusing which I am glad I can do manually and then timing my shot based on the weight of coffee that is put out.
If I was buying a Breville with my current knowledge I would get a Dual Boiler.
If I had more money to spend than a Breville then I would look at a lever arm or Decent or Rocket.
However this is great to also get a grip on all the variables you have to control to pull a good to great shot. You can still pull very tasty shots if you are buying well and freshly roasted beans. The beans I get have spoiled me as most cafes can't compare to what I can brew however the good ones will always pull a far better espresso than what you can get with a Bambino.
It will be one of those products which you buy and then you realise "oh no I should have saved up for the high end".
Small and compact we love the machine and during this lock down its awesome just to make the perfect coffee in your own kitchen.
This machine has already paid for it self, and the coffee shops around me have lost my business..
Make sure to pair it with the right grinder, and the correct grind setting is what make/break the taste of the coffee. (we have the Breville smart pro grinder and setting at finest 6 double shot espresso)
FYI the double shot single walled basket is not included, so you have to buy this separate from Amazon or Breville (it's a must)
It is nice and compact and you’ll save on bench space. Would probably be “ok” if you’re just making coffee for one person but I wouldn’t recommend this coffee machine and I really like Breville appliances.
