It’s the first thing I look forward to in the morning and fuels me throughout the day. I even turn to it for an afternoon pick-me-up. It’s warm, creamy and delicious. What am I?

C – O – F – F – E – E  !

It’s no secret – I have a love affair with coffee. So, of course, I was delighted to try Breville’s Bambino™ Plus espresso machine. Who wouldn’t want to make delicious, premium quality coffee beverages at home?

I had experience using a premium espresso machine a few years back where I worked and loaded up on lattes several times a day. And since my husband is Italian, we had a vintage espresso machine passed down to us from family as well. We know what makes the perfect espresso! So we were both curious to see if the Breville Bambino™ Plus would fit the bill.

Breville Bambino™ Plus

This espresso machine arrived at our door right before Christmas, so over the holidays, I was able to set it up and try it out. I love that Breville Bambino™ Plus is a compact size as we don’t have a ton of counter space available. With a sleek stainless steel exterior, the machine is a beautiful addition to our kitchen.

Easy to use.

The Breville Bambino™ Plus is easy to use; it has three settings for temperature and frothing for milk if you’re making lattes or cappuccinos. It also comes with a single or double filter basket, along with a tamper and Razor trimming tool for easy measuring. We tend to use the double filter basket because we prefer our espresso long! The 54mm porta-filter with 19 grams is the key for full flavour and café quality coffee.

Warms up in 3 seconds.

It’s super convenient that you don’t have to wait for the machine to warm up before using; it’s ready to brew in three seconds. The Innovative Thermojet™ heating system achieves the optimum extraction temperature without the wait. The coffee temperature is perfect; the machine’s Digital Temperature Control (PID) delivers water at precisely the right temperature, ensuring optimal espresso extraction.

Froth milk like a Barista.

The automatic steam wand allows you to adjust the milk temperature and texture to suit your taste and makes barista quality foam. It’s also nice that the Bambino plus comes with a stainless steel milk jug!

The verdict.

So what do we think? My husband and I are impressed. The espresso has the perfect temperature, is nice and thick in texture and has the right amount of “schiuma” or crema/foam. Since I can’t have regular milk, I was surprised that the steam wand is able to froth my almond milk enough to resemble a regular latte.

I love that I can make espresso, cappuccinos and lattes within minutes. The only problem now is, trying to control how many I should drink a day! Breville has been successful at creating an espresso machine that honours Italian tradition my making café quality coffee.
