Breville Bambino Plus

Clean up

Easy, fast and efficient. After every use of the milk-wand runs an auto-clean cycle. The drip tray is light and easy to remove without spilling the contents.

GadgetGuy’s take: Breville Bambino Plus

Sometimes I think we go overboard with coffee makers. There is an argument for uber-expensive, fully automatic units with LCD panels, smartphone apps and refrigerated milk delivery just as people drive Porsches. But equally, there is a market for a good, honest coffee-machine that gets the best from beans, just as people drive Toyotas.

Breville Bambino Plus

So, for our money, it’s a great unit although for sheer convenience and a greater choice of beans we would probably recommend the BaristaExpress or Barista Pro at $899.95/1,199 with a built-in grinder.Or buy a Breville Dose Control Pro at $199.95 – problem solved.

We are rating it as a manual coffee-maker with no expectations of any automation. As such it is pretty hard to beat this coffee.
