The Curated Take
The Breville Bambino was my entry into home espresso. It is great for newcomers who want a machine that's easy to use but still have some control over their espresso shots. It has a great price point for the quality of shots it can pull, and steams milk well although the one-hole steam wand does steam a bit slowly. After using the machine for a year I've nailed down how to get great espresso using manual mode. That being said since there is no 3-way solenoid valve you need to learn when to end the shot early since quite a bit of water will still come out. It heats up quickly so no forethought is needed, and I can make coffee as soon as I want it. I know I will upgrade at some point, but probably not until the machine dies. It does everything I want and need it to do for basic espresso and milk drinks.
- Can be used without an espresso grinder with the pressurized basket
- Is ready to be used in 3 seconds
- Manual mode helps going more in-depth with fine-tuning espresso shots
- Shots need to be ended early since there is no 3-way solenoid valve
- Steaming can take a bit longer since the wand only has 1 hole
