Breville The Bambino Plus Espresso Machine
Breville Bambino Plus Review / Description
Don't let the compact size of the Breville Bambino Plus fool you. As a matter of fact, Breville's tagline for this gem of an semi-automatic espresso machine is “compact without compromise”.
The Breville Bambino Plus is priced as an entry-level home espresso machine but comes with a wealth of features you'd find only in advanced models. For starters, this machine uses a proprietary heating system not like unlike a thermal coil that enables the machine to be ready in 3 seconds after turning it on. That's incredibly fast and a huge benefit for the espresso lover short on time in the mornings. It also features an automatic steam wand that allows you to adjust your milk temperature and texture. The wand automatically turns off after reaching the desired temperature and even has an automatic purging feature to keep the wand clean. Automatic steam wands that offer this level of precision and convenience are typically not included with espresso machines at this price point. This is part of what makes the Bambino have such broad appeal. This entry espresso machine also comes with PID (proportional integral derivative) which allows you to precisely set brew temperature giving you far more consistent results.
The Bambino Plus also comes with pre-infusion which saturates the beans with low pressure water prior to the 9 bars of pressure kicking into gear. The pre-wetted beans help achieve a more even flavor extraction process.
At the end of the day, this semi-automatic espresso machine delivers cafe-quality drinks, in minimal time, and with a minimal footprint. For those who've been in this market for a long time, you'll be amazed by how much performance Breville was able to pack into this compact espresso machine. The Breville Bambino Plus fulfills an existing gap in the home espresso market making it one of the best semi-automatic espresso machines on the market.
