Buying a Breville Espresso machine? We made a list of the best ones!  

Breville offers many fantastic top-of-the-line espresso machines under $2,200, but each one is a little different. Here are their best models and what makes them special:

1. Breville Nespresso VertuoPlus Deluxe

Nespresso VertuoPlus by Breville with copper mug

Single-serve never tasted so good! We loved the original Nespresso Vertuo and now we can’t get enough of the VertuoPlus Deluxe! This nifty coffee and espresso maker heats up in just 15 seconds. You’ll love the ability to create a specialty drink with just the press of a button!

The machine also includes an Aeroccino milk frother so you can feel like a real barista. You won’t have to refill the water often because the extra-large water tank holds a whopping 60 oz. to use with any Nespresso Vertuo pod.

Emily on our team has this model, and here’s what she said about it:

“I received this as a housewarming gift from my very thoughtful friends and I think of them every time I fire it up. It makes incredible smooth, rich, and perfect-every-time espresso… all from a POD! I had scoffed at the idea of a pod brewer (since I take my pour-over coffee brewing pretty seriously too) but I am continuously impressed. I love the ease of use as it comes in handy for after-dinner guests. Everyone picks a pod, pops it in, and they can enjoy a fabulous espresso in less than a minute!”

2. Breville Barista Express

Breville BES870XL Barista Express Espresso Machine$599.99 (regularly $749.95)

Want to be a barista? Now you can be! This best-selling espresso machine includes a built-in grinder with dose-control grinding so you get the perfect amount of grounds every time. You’ll get optimal espresso extraction, too, because this machine includes a temperature control that ensures the temperature is just right.

Those that enjoy milk in their drink will love using the steam wand to manually create latte art and a hot water spout is provided for tea or Americanos. You’ll save hundreds per year skipping the local coffee shop, so at this price point, the Barista Express pays for itself! Comes with a 1-year warranty.

Angie on our team loves her Barista Express: 

“I have the Breville Barista Express and absolutely LOVE it!! I don’t even like to purchase an Americano from a coffee shop as nothing compares to what I can make from my own home. This is probably one of my favorite purchases ever and although the initial investment was a bit steep, I have saved so much more by rarely hitting up Starbucks now!”

3. Breville Nespresso Creatista Pro

Looking for a top-of-the-line single-serving coffee maker that uses pods? Breville teamed up with Nespresso to make this multifunctional machine that makes both coffee and espresso! Choose between three different sizes for the brew that suits your needs. The automatic milk frother and smart LCD display give you the perfect settings to create your favorite espresso or coffee drinks.

Use any of Nespresso’s 30+ coffee and espresso capsules/pods. You’ll get a complimentary starter set of them with your machine! The icing on the cake is a 2-year warranty and the safety feature that turns the machine off automatically after 9 minutes.

Here’s what one customer had to say:

“After using an imported manual machine for several years this semi-automatic machine is amazingly easy to use and maintain. Cleanup takes minutes and the espresso is excellent with ample crema. Milk is heated to perfect temp and is steamed adequately to draw designs in my cappuccino. Highly recommend this machine!”

4. Breville Barista Pro

Breville BES878BSS Barista Pro Espresso Machine – $679.95 (regularly 849.95)

Get all the perks of the Barista Express and then some. This savvy machine heats up in just 3 seconds! You’ll get an instantaneous transition from espresso to steam. Meanwhile, the LCD display will show you the progress of your grinding and extracting. It also shows your settings so you can make a perfect cup every time. Comes with a 2-year warranty.

Here’s what one customer had to say:

“I love this machine. I’m new to making coffee like this as I had just gone into coffee shops every day, but after a couple of trips to Europe, I developed an interest in doing it on my own, and saving money! Couldn’t have made a better decision! Coffee is amazing and I’ve saved hundreds of dollars already in just a few weeks!”

5. Breville Barista Touch

Breville BES880BSS Barista Touch Espresso Machine – $879.95 (regularly $1,099.95)

This snazzy machine is a coffee lover’s dream! You’ll get all the features of the Barista Pro like a built-in grinder with dose control, precise temperature and extraction, 3-second heat up, and a 2-year warranty.

Where this model excels is the intuitive touch screen. This automatic device will walk you through making the best specialty drinks and even texturizes your milk for you. Found a particular drink that you love? Make it with just the press of a button when you save your personalized settings. Save up to 8 of your favorite beverages!

Here’s what one customer had to say:

“This is everything we wanted in an espresso machine. We had no knowledge base, but the interactive screen led us through all the steps and all the options. The self-cleaning milk wand is really nice. We like the ease of operation, but also the ability to customize the drinks. The flavor of the coffee is amazing.”

6. Breville Oracle

Brew your espresso and milk at the same time with an Oracle thanks to its dual boiler! This is truly a top-of-the-line model no matter your espresso drink of choice. Espresso shot purists will love the strong brew with silky crema. Americano lovers will enjoy the one-touch Americano button. For other specialty drinks, the Oracle has a shot-control feature that adjusts the number of espresso shots you receive.

Like similar models, the Oracle has a built-in grinder with dose control, precise temperature controls, and a 2-year warranty. Its LCD display will ensure you are using the best settings for a delicious full-bodied beverage. But if you prefer the touch screen instead, you can get an Oracle Touch for around $600 extra. It’s the most luxurious machine Breville has to offer!

“This is an extraordinary machine. Its simplicity to operate along with a diverse number of settings allow you to fine-tune its function to produce an amazing coffee drink. We have also been very impressed with the support Breville has provided in the midst of the pandemic. Love it and would buy it again!”

    Wasn’t included on the list but highly recommend the Breville Bambino! I have been using it for about 6 months now and absolutely love it. I needed something compact dye to limited counter space and it is perfect.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      So glad you’re loving your Breville! Thanks for sharing! ❤️

    We have the Breville Barista Touch for almost 2 years. Makes 4-5 lattes a day and never had a problem. I can make a fancy coffeehouse style beverage onehanded in less than a minute. Tells you when to perform maintenance and walks you through each step with pictures on the screen – no pulling out a manual. It was a big purchase but we waited for a $100 sale and used some gift cards. Its more than paid for itself and its simple enough guests can use it on their own. We’ve had friends stop at our house for coffee instead of going to a cafe 🙂

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      WOW! It’s great to hear how you’re loving your Breville, Stephanie! Thanks so much for letting other readers know about your experience! 💞

    The touch model looks amazing! When I was looking for a super automatic machine I watched “Seattle Coffee Gear” YouTube video reviews on the various makes and models. Their crew reviews are amazing and can really help you decide on which one will work best for you. We ultimately purchased a Miele super automatic from Costco.com about 5 years ago and absolutely love it. Worth every penny!

    Unless you’re getting any of these for free, I vote none of them. Your money will be better spent elsewhere.

    • everest716

      I think I am just fine where I choose to spend my money! I researched what machine had the best features/drinks and bought it as a family Christmas gift. The beans I buy at my Costco in Canada are high quality and very affordable. Maybe to you the price of the machine seems high – but to me it was an investment in high quality fresh brewed coffee. I’m also NOT paying for super expensive Keurig “brown water” pods or for coffee at Starbucks or Tim Hortons. To each his own. Cheers!

  5. Court!

    Has anybody had luck finding refurbished or used machines? Would love an automatic machine but can’t afford the price of a new one.
