Product Reviewed: Breville 800 class
Bottom Line: Yes you can make a slightly better cup with a fancy machine but in terms of bang for buck this one takes some beating.

Bottom Line: Well-built. Delivers adequate, but not great espresso.  Good all-around for price range. If perfection is a must, go elsewhere.
