This Espresso Machine Is Tiny and Doesn’t Cost a Fortune

Just here for discounts? Save $100 on Breville’s Bambino espresso machine on Amazon right now.

Breville’s Bambino espresso machine is the most compact and affordable in its lineup. The Bambino Plus pulls useful tech from Breville’s larger, pricier options — a three-second heat-up time, shot pre-infusion and its fairly incredible milk wand — while maintaining a consistent, reliable flavor profile. It’s also $100 off today on Amazon.

In the world of home espresso machines, there isn’t really much debate about who makes the best ones. According to the likes of Business Insider, Spruce Eats, Epicurious and virtually any other review site that’s gotten its hands on one, Breville’s espresso makers are the best for non-coffee professionals.

This makes a lot of sense. Breville is an Australian company and Australia has been an espresso country for well over a decade. Its line of espresso makers routinely haul in awards. And while the machines all have their strengths, the milk wand is what gets the most buzz with the pros.

“Milk, in the past, has been the hardest thing to get right at home — a lot of milk frothers make this really blown-out, bubbly milk,” Joe Coffee’s Andrew Oberholzer once told us of the milk wand, “With this, you’re actually getting microfoam that’s possible to pour latte art with, if you know what you’re doing. I don’t know too many other home machines where you could actually steam that kind of quality of milk without even having to do anything.”

Unlike some its larger models, the Bambino does not come with a grinder or doser built-in. The process to making espresso on it is as follows: tamp, trim, press a button. Today, you can get one for $100 off its regular $500 retail price.
