Watch the video at Seattle Coffee Gear and the tune-up is dead easy. Huge savings vs. repair shop.

This customer purchased the item at our site.
My Starbucks Barista was leaking out of the steam wand which is now fixed because of this. The old spring was weak. The gasket was filthy when I removed it. Also the screen is much better now.

This is a great machine. It makes great capuccinos but not great espresso's. The frother has a small gasket which pops off easily and is easy to loose. Without the gasket the milk does not froth. The light to descale comes on often even though I use filtered water. I think this is a bit of a scam to get you to buy their descaler products.

I have owned this machine for 2 weeks and I am very happy. While this machine is not cheap it does offer exactly what I was looking for. Its fast, simple, clean and makes a very good cup of espresso. If you are like me and are not going to put the time into "mastering" the are of espresso/latte making this will get you 90% of the way. The frother is great and the espresso is better then the supper autos I have tried.

Ps.. when you get it home make sure the milk wand is down and you don't use pre-filtered water or it won't heat up. However Breville service is friendly and amazingly competent.

Highly recommended.

I got this upgrade kit and found that it is the same identical circuit board as the original !?! All you get from this is some software features that OBVIOUSLY should have been part of the original. There should have been a USB port for software upgrades rather than to have to replace the whole control panel. (How would you like to pay for an app for your phone, then have to take the phone apart to install the same electronics with the new app installed? That's what this is.)
I only gave it 2 stars because the software adds control and temperature features that should have OBVIOUSLY been offered with the first version otherwise, I would have given it 1 star.
While installing this, I found that the holes are very poorly lined up on the roaster itself, so installation was painfully long - hours... Hopefully your Behmor 1600 was built better, but the hole alignment was so bad that some of the internal screws that were supposed to be there were missing because the production worker could not possibly get it to line up.

Impressive welded stainless steel construction (no fasteners) and NO plastic. Mesh filter which unscrews for cleaning. Very easy to use. Although double wall insulated, do not expect this to keep coffee hot for hours. Large coffee mugs are 10-12oz so if you want 2 mugfuls, buy the 23oz version.

This is a great blend. One of the best I have had for the price! I could make better stickers for the bag though ;) Call me up lets talk about it. Oh so I did give it a 5 star rating ;)

Really impressed with my recent purchase. It was unanimous on many sites that this grinder was a great performance-price choice. The reviews mentionned the consistency of this grinder and its quality. In order to fully see full potential of makin great espressos, i ll need to upgrade my Breville Cafe Roma to a Rancilio Sylva!!!

Great unit. Little tight to pull the lid out but that's what keeps it airtight, I guess. My coffee stays fresher than it ever has.

The milk chiller keeps milk COLD and dispenses properly. One of the best dispensers we have ever used.

I think this is a very poular coffee in Europe -- rightly so. It has balanced taste. Also, I can grind it consistently to get the right expresso strength all the time. Some brands are not connsistent enough, and with a given fineness level on the grinder, produce expresso of verying strenth.

Bought this machine a few weeks at Espressoplanet where excellent hands-on demo and tasking were provided. It's working well with intutive instructions and manuals. Both long coffee and espressso drinker will enjoy it with rish aroma and crema. Recommend it to all!

Philip T. about  Baratza Encore Grinder:
Just bought this grinder and I am very impressed with it. With it's more consistent and finer grind, compared to the blade grinder(chopper) we had been using, it has greatly improved the quality of our espresso shots. Like night and day difference. Very pleased! I especially like the feature that I can just hold the porta filter under the chute and push the momentary on-off switch to grind the perfect portion as needed. Impressed with Espresso Planet too. Next day free delivery of my order. Can't ask for better than that.

Won this as part of the 15th anniversary contest. Easy to use and makes a very good cup of coffee! Always use fresh beans!

Keeps coffee beans fresh, as promised. Does NOT hold a full pound of coffee, which it inconvenient.

Coffee machine imparts a plastic smell and taste to any water that runs through the machine even after rinsing multiple times.

Would not recommend this machine to anyone who enjoys non-plastic tasting coffee.

Francois Bergevin about  Rancilio Grouphead Cleaning Brush:
Do not use this brush with the brew head on. Hot water will follow the handle and burn you with it. There are much better brushes you can get for relatively the same price from this very site.

Maureen cunningham about  Nespresso Aeroccino 3 Milk Frother Black:

todd bradt about  Porta Filter Spout Cleaning Brush:
Works good for cleaning 1/4" stainless steel straws too, sturdy spiral bristles do a good job especially for straws used for smoothies. Just need to insert from both ends due to straw length.

Home Behmor 1600 roasted manually to get a textbook Full City Roast. Water 197F, 4 minute steep in large Espro Press with 75g of fresh coffee with the Baratza Encore.

Big bold and juicy citrus, accompanied with powerfully delicious aroma - I take my first sip and savor. This is going to be great. Pouring temperature into my cup is 195F into a very clean cup with no fines.

Dynamite introduction to a world of complexity, though deep and bold, there is an underlying sweetness present. Tart citrus brightness melts into a medley of dark cherry and ripe berries, a hint of vanilla - wow. Oh that bittersweet cocoa! What character right from the word go..

Huge body. Very pleasant, warming, and satisfying. Kenya AA is famous for this but this sample from Espresso Planet is special among all the Kenyas I have tasted. This one is a journey to unfold.

As the aroma changes in nuances, my clean cup cooling somewhat is potent euphoria. Did I say this Kenya AA is fantastic?! I need to breathe and assess a moment from the sensory offerings. That floral essence abounds, like after a warm springtime thunder shower. The heightening sensations of herbal notes are so many, and so difficult to put into words. After a rain of imagination it is so clear. The juicy palate is all about depth, bright citrus, gorgeous acidity, once again to treat me with a plethora of fresh herbs in a nice breeze.

Rich and majectic is exactly what one hopes for in Kenya AA. I am immersed in chocolaty finish with lingering dry red winey fruit. ike a frothy pool of cane sugar, toasted cinnamon, and oranges that end with that dark cherry. Superb.

Heavenly. Bet it cups into the mid-ninties score. This is first class African Coffea Arabica.

Please share your own thoughts and tastes!
