Good coffee, easy clean but milk steaming function poor
on 7 April 2016
The coffee grinder would do better having more grind levels. There are only 3 settings and I'm already set it to the finest setting.
In saying that the coffee it extracts is good, but even on high temperature could be little hotter.
Where the machine really falls short is generating the milk froth. No matter what milk type I use the foam is always 'split' from the liquid; there is no microfoam generation what so ever. Using same milk I had no issues compared to what I could get out of my old Sunbeam and Graef steam wand... microfoam galore! Contemplating returning the unit.
Ended up returning the unit and purchased Heston's dual boiler from JL which is pricier but came with free grinder and a price match for under £900. Which wouldn't have paid more for a "Breville" machine nomatter who's face they stick on the box. That said 3mths in and really pleased with the "Sage" grinder and machine.
