Product Description

Café culture for the home countertop. Die-cast aluminum and zinc body. A full 4.5" (11.4 cm) clearance accommodates larger cups - ideal for espresso variations like Americano, Cappuccino, and Café Latte. Prior to extraction, the unique 15-bar Triple-Prime pump automatically releases three bursts of hot water into the filter head, causing the ground coffee to expand. The increased pressure allows the machine to extract more crema and gives the coffee a rich, smooth taste. Both 'Single Wall' and 'Dual Wall' filters now included.

I love my machine.

If my house were robbed and they stole my Breville 830, I would replace it with another Breville 830 (I've only had the machine for 4 months...I reserve the right to change my opinion if it fails me in the first 2 years).

BES830XL Die-Cast Programmable Espresso Machine

Every morning I stumble over to this very beautiful piece of machinary, and push that round "start" button and savor the anticipation of coffee drinks better than I get at the local overpriced coffee drive-through.

I can't comment on reliability apart from "mine works just like new and I use it twice a day". At four months old, that's expected. Ask me in 2-3 years. My last machine was a gift from my parents in 1991. It finally died of total system collapse (i.e. "old age").

This machine makes great espresso WITHOUT having to be an expert.

I had my heart set on a LaPavoni Europaccola, but after reading the blogs , I knew that I'd never devote the hundreds of hours to learn how to exactly tamp the coffee, say the magic spells and do the special espresso dance necessary to pull a great shot out of such a machine.

SO maybe this machine doesn't produce the AMAZING espresso that experts get from a LaPavoni. But even a half-awake idiot like me can dump coffee into the Breville basket thingy and push the big round button at 6:01am and have truly good espresso by 6:02am.


The machine is BEAUTIFUL to look at. It looks more expensive than $500. In the past, when I've looked at a lot of machines in stores, seen the price , and thought "they want HOW MUCH for THAT?" Not this machine.

This particular model (830XL) was out of stock at most dealers. I was tempted to get the older model, 820XL, but found negative reviews regarding its pressure guage breaking down often. I wanted to avoid that so I waited and found a seller that had the newer 830XL in stock. Item was well packaged and was delivered ahead of schedule.

I ran my first espresso, and it came out decent with a good amount of crema. I tried again using a different grind size. I can see the pressure guage showing optimal pressure for the 1st run, and slightly higher for the 2nd run. On the third run, the pressure guage stopped working and the espresso was muddy and terrible. I made sure everything was clean and water tank was full, etc. I tried both manual and automatic modes. I tried going back to initial grind size. I have a pretty good coffee grinder (Rancillio Rocky) that gives out very consistent grind size. I tried everything I could think of, but the pressure guage never worked again and the espresso was not the same as the first two that came out.

They emphasize that this machine is die-cast. I was expecting a solid build quality. It's beautifully designed, but I don't know how much of this machine is actually die-cast. A good part of this thing is also plastic with something silver on the surface. I can cause the machine to flex slightly by applying some pressure from the sides when I try to move or shift it. It didn't feel as solid as I was expecting it to be.

I really wanted to like this espresso maker. It appears Breville did not do so much to address the common pressure guage problem found in the previous model. Thank God I bought this from Amazon; I just arranged a return with the Seller without any trouble.

I've purchased a Rancilio Silvia since. Very satisfied with the Silvia. Check her reviews.

This may be a long review and I hope I am allowed the space to get all my thoughts in it since I have a lot to say. After a lot of research on the Internet and reading various reviews from posts and watching many YouTube demonstrations, I decided on the Breville 830XL. Yes, there were a lot of negative and even nasty comments, but the favorable comments outnumbered them by far. I received my first 830 XL on 14 Apr 2012. I was surprised that it was much smaller than it appeared in the advertisement and YouTube reviews. However it was very heavy, 10.3 kg (almost 23 pounds, net weight) and looked good and impressive on my kitchen counter. I had it ready within an hour for my first brew, even after spending time cleaning it and flushing the system out with its first hot water "brew." The coffee came out tasting not bad considering what other reviewers said about using cheap coffee and throwing away the first brews to get rid of the metallic taste of new metal. However I could not get the pressure gauge to work at all! Even after getting lots of advice on line, using a blog at "getsatisfaction.com", was I able to get the gauge ALMOST in the optimum pressure area of the dial. But this only worked using the double filter and tamping the coffee down with all the strength I had. I also went through various grinds and four different coffees, even fresh Starbuck coffee that was given an espresso grind just before my brewing. I emailed Breville and they agreed to send me another machine. I had the new machine in four days.

As I was setting this second machine up, I already suspected my problems were over because I noted the portafilter had much more resistance when turning it to the right. The previous machine went to the lock position almost without any resistance at all.
