Overview

Brew easy with Breville's Bambino Espresso Machine. Built to fit any budget, the Bambino BES450 offers easy espresso in a pint-sized package. The Bambino begins with a minimal 2-button control scheme coupled with Breville's unique Thermojet heating system—promising piping warm shots seconds after start-up. Milk is managed with a classic one-hole steam wand for repeatable milk texturing exactly as you like it. Best of all, the Bambino comes equipped with pressurized brew baskets for no-fuss extractions, letting it work even with preground coffees.

    Thermoblock
Features
  • Compact: The Bambino's slim footprint lets it tuck under cabinets right next to your other appliances.
  • Timed Dosing: Set and save your ideal single and double shot times.
  • Manual Steam: Unlike the larger Bambino Plus, the Bambino does not come with an automatic steam wand.
  • Hot Water: A dedicated hot water button pulls from the steam wand for tea or Americanos.
  • Pressurized Baskets Only: The Bambino comes with pressurized single and double baskets for effortless shot pulling.
    • Pros
      • Entry Level Espresso: The clean design and simplistic operation make the Bambino a joy to use for the espresso novice.
      • Hot Water: The addition of a hot water button goes a long way toward making this more usable for longer coffee drinks.
    • Cons
      • Basic Operation: Affordability comes at a price, gone are the Bambino Plus' temperature adjustments and auto-steam wand.
      • Compromised Finish: To reach this entry-level price point, the Bambino sacrifices a few visual niceties, like the chrome group shroud—as well as some internal ones, as the machine's warranty is only 1 year.
