What is the advantage of this Breville BES840XL A the Infuser Espresso Machine?
Kitchen appliances designed to inspire people to produce perfect food and beverage results in their own homes with ease. From espresso machines to food processors, the innovation in each appliance delights. Breville makes the process a pleasure and the end result perfect, every time.
The Infuser delivers optimal espresso flavor in every cup. It pre-infuses ground coffee with low, steady water pressure before extraction, gently expanding the grinds before stepping up to high pressure. The result is a more even extraction, which produces balanced espresso flavor.
The 4 keys formula for third wave specialty coffee at home
Full-bodied coffee with rich and complex flavors 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 flavors 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.
Sweet, delicious and nuanced flavor 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.
An opulent, creamy and caramel-colored 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.
Savor the silky taste and velvety mouthfeel of true microfoam milk. The milk is steamed with pressure that creates thousands of tiny bubbles, enhancing flavor 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.
Not all coffees are the same. Control the volume of each pour at the touch of a button.
Maximize flavor potential with low pressure pre-infusion, digital PID temperature control, adjustable in 4 F increments and pressure gauge that guides you to the right extraction.
High power 1650 W element for high pressure steam and faster heat up to create the micro-foam necessary for a caf quality taste and essential for creating latte art.
Choose between 1 shot, 2 shots or manual control over how much espresso ends up in your cup for the perfect dose every time.
For espresso with a well-balanced flavor, flavor needs to be drawn evenly from all the coffee grinds. What is the best way to prepare the grinds for an even extraction Rather than starting with bursts of high pressure, the Breville Infuser Espresso Machine starts with steady, low pressure to gently expand the grinds. This helps fills in any cracks, gaps, or irregularities in the coffee puck before full pressure is applied, so even pressure is applied to all parts of the coffee puck and optimal flavor is extracted.The BES840XL has both automatic features, like temperature settings, and programmable features like volumetric control. The key features that set it apart from other espresso machines in its price range are the pre-inFusion technology, the thermocoil heating system, and PID temperature control technology. See chart below for details.Other helpful features include a cup warmer on the top of the machine and a feature that removes excess water from the filter basket after coffee extraction, so the used grounds form a dry puck for quicker cleanup. The machine goes into Sleep Mode after 1 hour and automatically shuts off after 3 hours. There is extra-tall cup clearance for brewing directly into travel mugs.Other touches include an Empty Me indicator that lets you know when the removable drip tray is full and a Clean Me cleaning alert. The storage tray houses the included accessories. Lastly, all parts that come in contact with water and coffee are BPA free.
Customer reviewsMay NOT be REPAIRABLE after warranty period
First, I like this machine. I ve had a BES820 for several years. A small piece of tubing or connector broke a number of years ago, but a local repair shop that was able to buy parts from Breville at the time fixed it, and it s been a champ since then. So, I got another for our vacation home. So far so good. But now the BES820 has broken again, and I ve learned that due to a change in policy, it is NO LONGER REPAIRABLE because they won t sell parts to repair places. This is a ton of resources to go into the waste stream because the company has decided that they want you to purchase more of their machines. So I ve gone from being a devoted Breville user to now being a sworn anything-but-Breville espresso drinker. Super disappointed in this company.
