Customer reviewsGreat . . . while it lasted . . . -
I debated whether to buy the Breville Barista Express with its built in grinder or the Breville Infuser, essentially the same machine sans grinder, and then get a separate grinder, for some time. I figured for the 100 price difference I could get a decent grinder, and if one went down I would still have the other. Then I saw the refurbished Barista Express for a bit more than half of the price of a new one and the decision was easy. I was concerned about the reports of reliability issues but adding a four year warranty for about 30 still kept the price exceptionally low and gave me enough of a comfort level to pull the trigger.
