Finally, beginner's espresso without the startup costs. The Breville Bambino Plus packs a cafe's worth of artistry into a compact case smaller than most shopping bags. Designed as the easiest entry in walk-up shots, the Bambino's quick-heat thermocoil will have a hot shot in-hand seconds from start-up. Better, the Bambino's auto-frothing steam wand magnificently microfoams milk for lattes or creates creamy foam for cappuccinos—all on its own. The Bambino's combination of size, simplicity, and efficiency makes it an excellent choice for new home baristas.
