Descent Home Machine for Beginners

Posted on May 24, 2024
The Breville Touch is a decent home espresso machine, especially for beginners who don’t know how to manually make espresso. Its user-friendly interface and automated features make it easy for novices to produce a consistent cup without extensive knowledge or skill. The built-in sensor for steaming milk is a convenient feature for those who prefer not to manually froth milk. However, the high level of automation can be a drawback for seasoned baristas. The machine’s extensive settings and options might overwhelm users who prefer a more hands-on approach to dialing in their shots. Additionally, the quality of the espresso produced does not seem to justify the machine’s price point. Despite its compact size and beginner-friendly design, the Breville Touch falls short in delivering the superior shot quality that coffee connoisseurs seek. In conclusion, while the Breville Touch offers convenience and ease of use for beginners, it is less suitable for experienced users looking for precise control over their espresso. Its numerous settings and automated features might appeal to some, but the overall shot quality and value for money do not make it a standout choice. I wouldn’t purchase it again for myself, nor would I recommend it to a serious coffee enthusiast. However, for those new to espresso-making, it remains a decent option.

Matthew was super helpful!
5 /5
Matthew was super helpful, knowledgeable and efficient to find me what I needed within my budget. I could tell he's so passionate about coffee in general. He was able to use just a few additional questions to understand my preference and need and I was able to make a decision on the espresso machine I liked in such a short time. On top of that, there was a sale on the machine that fit my need, within my budget that i really liked, so the entire experience was time and money saver! Matthew was also very easy to talk to. I will definitely seek for Mathew's advice in my future coffee related purchases!

Isaiah spent time (a lot of time) to listen to what I wanted, even as it evolved over the course of a day and I learned new things about the espresso making hobby I am looking to jump into. His recommendations were right on point with what I was looking for and I cannot be more excited to receive my items and begin making delicious espressos and espresso drinks! Thanks Isaiah!

Jesse is a Superstar!!
5 /5
I am not very knowledgeable about anything coffee related, but Jesse was able to ask pertinent questions about my tastes to help me narrow my options down to a coffee machine that is easy to use and within my budget. It was refreshing to find a representative who didn't take the "salesman approach" but genuinely loves coffee and wanted me to feel the same way about my coffee experience. I vote that this guy be given a raise.

I have never used Curated prior to this purchase but if all the experts are as knowledgeable as Matt then it certainly won’t be my last time. He was eager to answer all of my questions and more importantly he made a recommendation based on my needs instead of bias. Thanks Matt for a wonderful purchasing experience.
