    Purchase of Breville Bambino plus Espresso Machine

    Excellent. Received item from ECS Coffee very quickly all in good order. Machine works as advertised and makes great coffee. I use Hawaiian coffee beans as well as Jamaican Blue Mountain beans. I set my preferred grind and learned how much of the ground coffee to tamp after a couple of brews, and now, I am Happy….

    Bambino Plus, much > Bambino

    First I just wanna mention that ECS Burlington and Ancaster have been fantastic to deal with. Tamara at the Burlington location was so friendly and so accommodating and she really helped us out when we were trying to get our situation sorted. We ended up having to go to the Ancaster location and I forget the name of the lovely lady who works there name but she was so kind and friendly as well. I highly recommend ECS coffee . Now onto the machine. Recently my brothers and I purchased the Bambino espresso machine. We were super excited and we had done a lot of research beforehand. We settled on the Bambino because at its price point (especially since it’s on sale currently) it seemed to provide quite a bit for the money. We purchased the unit and brought it home and we were happy but couldn’t help but feel that there could be more. And it could be better. We had toyed with the idea of purchasing the Bambino plus before we settled on the regular Bambino but because the differences appeared to be restricted to the automatic milk frothing and a couple smaller features we ended up settling with the Bambino. However after having the Bambino for less than a day we found out that there are some hidden features with the Bambino plus that make it a much better value. This first feature I am going to mention is one that makes a big difference and is listed nowhere when it comes to purchasing the Bambino plus. It’s not on Breville’s website, it’s not on any seller’s websites and it seems to be a very unknown thing. It’s called a triple solenoid. Without going too deep into its description you should know that it purges all moisture from the Porter filter after a shot is pulled through so you don’t have to sit there waiting for the rest of the coffee to drip out and you end up with a super dry puck. It also allows you to back flush the system which helps maintain the integrity and cleanliness of the internal systems. Just these two features alone would’ve made the difference and had us exchange our machine. Which is exactly what we did. Upon getting the Bambino plus and bringing it home we found a few more features that we were originally unaware of. Such as the fact that the Bambino Plus comes with not only the obligatory dual wall one and two shot baskets, but also the single wall unpressurized one and two shot baskets. Which is fantastic, as we were going to buy a single wall basket anyway because we had been led to believe that they only included the single wall baskets with this machine in the European market. This review is already long enough so I just wanna mention two more things. The portafilter that comes with the Bambino is very light and feels a tiny bit cheap especially on the handle. The Portafilter that comes with the Bambino plus is much heavier and appears to be more sturdy. This goes for the tamper as well, it is very light and flimsy with the bambino and heavier and sturdier with the bambino plus. Along with the larger water tank and the 3 second warm up that the Plus boasts versus the 1.5 minute warm up of the Bambino, it made our decision to exchange our unit and pay a bit more for the much superior machine extremely easy. I just really wanted to leave this review because had we known some of these things beforehand we would’ve gone with the plus originally.

    I love this machine!!!

    This little guy has got so much use since I bought it a few years back. Its payed for itself several times over by now. It heats up in 3 seconds, and you're pulling a shot in no time! I would recommend this to anyone.

    User friendly for beginners!

    As someone who somehow got ****** into watching espresso YouTube videos throughout the pandemic I had been struggling to make the investment... going back and forth between a full-out $1k+ machine with the grinder included vs a smaller more reasonably priced beginner machine. Now, I had already purchased a good grinder (Baratza Encore) for French press and pour over a year prior, and while it's technically not perfect for real espresso enthusiasts, it is certainly good enough for a beginners. To me, the "plus" was a worthwhile step up, and along with the Breville Knock Box Mini and a few packs of espresso beans I have been pleasantly surprised by it's performance and ease of use. The machine itself is beautiful and durable. Having some customizable features challenges me to improve my technique, but it's also easy to get good espresso without much effort or attention at all (so my partner isn't scared away by it). Looking forward to many more espressos to come!

    Great little machine

    I’m learning the ropes of espresso making and this seems to be a good machine to do just that. Twenty coffees in I haven’t run into any limitations that aren’t user related.
