The Infuser is very similar to the Barista Express, but it lacks the built-in grinder. I thought about it for a while, and ultimately decided a standalone grinder is a better investment for me, so I upgraded to the Smart Grinder Pro as well. It takes a bit of time to dial in shots, but it's so worth it.
So, if you get the Infuser, you need a good grinder to go with it, and a knock box (if you wish). Everything else is included. You get 4 baskets, double- and single-shots, both pressurized (boo!) and non-pressurized (yay!). You get the Razor tool, to help trim your doses (though I find it best for just checking that you're dosing correctly), cleaning tools, and more. There's storage for this in a tray behind the drip tray.
The machine has a steam wand, which is a bit slow but good for learning technique. There's a hot water dispenser. The water tank is removable and includes a filter. You can program the shot time/volume buttons, but I haven't had to do that yet. It does automatically power off, but the button is right there, so convenient, I don't see much point in leaving it on between uses. There's a pressure gauge on the front, which can help you work on grind and tamp consistency. There is temperature regulation, which can also be tweaked through button presses.
Everything you need is here. But the resulting shots are what matter most, and I can tell you, they are very good! Of course, you need to buy high-quality beans (that is, fresh-roasted - none of this superstore, sitting-for-months-on-the-shelf stuff) and grind right before use. I have tried shots, lattes/cappuccinos, and they've been good, but the Americanos/long blacks are the best! I don't know why but this seems like such a better experience than the Gaggia I used to own. It is also quicker, I find. I hope the machine lives a good, long life, because I'm really happy with it so far!
The only thing I wish was that the tamper was calibrated, like an Espro. The only thing holding me back from upgrading the tamper is that I love the magnetic storage functionality on the Infuser - Breville really thought of everything!
The brewer is nice looking with real stainless steal covering the majority of surfaces. It has a small foot print so doesnt take up too much counter space.
Its fast, it warms up in less than a min, and it is super simple to use and produces consistent shots.
It comes with everything a new user could need - tamper, steam cup. and 2 pressure cups and two non pressure cups. The pressure cups are great if you dont have a good grinder or poorly ground coffee.
It has hot water spout as well.
A few cons I have noted in the several months Ive been using it.
Steam has to be activated and then takes several seconds to appear as the system has to heat up. I would prefer a system like my old brewer that had a switch for steam and it lit up when ready and then steam away.
The storage tray gets water and condensation in it so you have to dry it out once in a while.
It really like very fine ground coffee to get the proper pressure on shots so you need a good quality grinder or you the pressure cups.
Over all highly recommend this brewer
This machine is very forgiving and will guide you through the ups and downs of home espresso.
Best to use with a high-quality conical coffee grinder.
If you buy pre-grounded coffee, or don't have a clue how old are your coffee beans, be sure to use the double-wall (pressurized) filter. Or stick with the basic Breville Café Roma machine. If you are not patient, use Nespresso...
After a couple of months/years, you will remember the good times when you knew nothing about espresso, and will switch to a dual boiler model.
Also perfect for learning latte Art.
Well documented, full-equipped with reasonable quality tamper, 4 filters (2single cup, 2 double cups(single and double wall/pressurized)), Razor included. Everything stowed away in a convenient tray behind the removable waste basket.
Removable filtered water tank
Adjustable water temperature and quantity of water (pre-programmed to 30ml and 60ml for single and dual shots)
Uses non-standard 54mm filters (standard is 58mm).
All that's missing is coffee, milk (optional), a knock box, counter space and lots of patience!
Some will complain this machine provides inconsistent results. I can confirm it is not the case if you are meticulous and consistent across quantity, grinding, tamping and other espresso-related rituals.
The machine is easy to use. I have programmed the single shot button to give me about 1 1/2 ounces which is my preferred amount and I have programmed the double shot button to give me 3 ounces which is perfect for my wife. It only takes me a few minutes to make a cappuccino and a latte for our Saturday morning breakfast.
I wish the water container was about double it's width so I don't have fill it as often but other than that, the machine is fantastic and I really think it's the best Espresso maker for under $500.
