Encompassing the strength of a commercial machine in the size of a home-friendly footprint, the Breville Dual Boiler Espresso Machine Refurbished Model uses dual stainless steel boilers for precise temperature and pressure control every time. With electronic PID temperature control the ability to adjust the temperature for different bean roasts and origins are separate from the steam boiler settings. This allows for the right temperature to extract your shot while simultaneously steaming your milk to a frothy, velvety texture with the three-hole, 360-degree swivel steam wand.

Thank you!!! Jun 25, 2014
I already had a smaller steamer pitcher than the one that came with the machine and I find that one to be more convenient to use. It heats more quickly with ;the smaller volume and I prefer to use it twice than the larger one once.
A knock box is very handy.
A measured shot glass is very helpful in starting to learn the effect of grind, volume and tamping on the outcome.
Some small cloths to keep handy for cleaning, particularly the steam wand after each use.
I really like drinking out double wall clear glass cups. Mine are the Bodum Pavina 8 ounce glasses, which easily fit under the portafilter.
And, of course, a grinder really is essential. I started off using the pressurized portafileter with preground coffee. Shots looked great right away, but didn't develop the flavor that I get with the non-pressurized portafilter.
All this sounds like a lot, but just do it a little at a time. The machine is functional as is. Jun 26, 2014
Depending on the type of portafilter that you use and baskets that you want, you my want to look into the naked portafilter handle, and if you need a 21/22 gram'ish basket you will you will want to look into the La Morzocco triple basket, just don't order the portafilter hand from La Morzocco because I believe that it doesn't fit.
Generally, the dose will depend on the coffee that you get. Be sure to a espresso blend or single-origin that will pull well at 18grams. Also, a good grinder.
Have fun with the machine, it has been good for me, and once you figure out the magic spot for texturing the milk, you can make some pretty impressive latte art with it as well. Jun 26, 2014
espresso cups / capaccino cups
replacement water filter cartridges
a couple of more frothing pitchers
scale (optional, though if you weight coffee going in the portafilter and coming out of the machine you can increase the quality of the shots)
Many of these things are optional and can wait if money is a challenge.
Now, for the most important thing I can share. The grinder you use is just as important as the espresso machine. The folks at Seattle can help you choose one, though I would suggest getting the best one you can afford. Jun 27, 2014
The year of the machine I can't speak to, however. Jun 26, 2014
For cleaning the machine, you might consider buying some extra water filter cartriges and cleaning tablets.
Aside from that, you shouldn't need anything els. Jun 27, 2014
Should I expect scratches or wear and tear on this item?
Thanks for the info. Nov 11, 2013

an AWESOME update to our aging Barista Express BES860Review by Rover Kid
Quality Price Value
We had a factory refurbished Breville Barista Express (BES860XL) for over 4 years, until the brewing water flow meter went kaput (prior to the BES860 we had two other brand espresso machines which lasted only 1 to 2 years), and since repairs cost around $250 we decided it was time for a new machine. Needless to say. based on our experiences, we focused on a new factory refurbished Breville. We are extremely happy with our new factory refurbished BES900XL, Dual Boiler which allows us to create espresso drinks around 2X faster and better than was possible with our retired BES860XL! This refurbished unit came out of the box looking no different than a brand new unit except for one minor scratch on the refuse water tray. We highly recommend his machine over most of the more expensive premium brands. Another bonus is that we were given a free one-year warranty extension over the standard 6 month warranty on Breville factory refurbished machines!

Wonderful machine!Review by philipp

This machine continues to exceed my expectations. I've owned it for a few months now, and making espresso has become a very pleasurable daily ritual.
The consistency of temperature, and pressure, dual boilers for independent extraction and powerful steaming, clear backlit display, easy clean-up with buttons which are flush with the stainless armature, and a host of other well-thought-out features, make this machine a real pleasure to use. I don't know of any other brand which delivers this many features and quality for the price.

I couldn't be more happyReview by Pete

This espresso machine is awesome. It allows me to make espresso and cappaccino that is as good as what I get at high end coffee shops.
Also, the steamer wand generates really nice frothed milk.
There is nothing that has been less than satisfactory.

The Dual Boiler which I received this week has gone above and beyond my expectations. It really does have all the bells and whistles. Features that I didn't even know I needed like for example; the wheels that you can pop out so you can roll it about on the counter! It's Fantastic!
**Though I must say I did call the 1-800 # to ask if the refurbished units come with a spare water filter to start you off with and she told me NO! I was a little bummed by that because then I had to hurriedly order some... but when the unit arrived I did get a spare filter and 2 cleaning tablets. OIE!
