In this busy world, there’s no time for dillydallying in line for coffee. The Breville Duo-Temp Pro Espresso Machine is a champion of getting you out the door with a cup of piping hot coffee from home. Power on the Duo-Temp and in mere seconds fresh coffee is brewing straight into your cup. With the non-pressurized and pressurized portafilter baskets, anyone can take the Duo-Temp for a spin. Feeling like a latte or Americano? The commercial style steam wand goes from zero to 60 to deliver steaming milk or hot water. Swivel the wand 360° to get the right angle of attack with any container. Ready for round two? After steaming, the Duo-Temp auto-purges cool water through the heating system to bring the temperature down to keep coffee fresh. The Duo-Temp’s compact size leaves plenty of space for a grinder and a line of mugs ready to be filled! At the Duo-Temp’s speed, you’ll be leaving a trail of dust as you head out the door with a coffee in hand.

Features and Functionality

  • Auto-Purge - After steaming, the auto purge automatically adjust the temperature back to brewing.
  • Extra Touches - Breville excels in providing convenient features, such as a finger-grab on the steam wand, a magnetic tamper and a storage drawer behind the drip tray.
  • Thermocoil Heating - The stainless steel coil provides accurate control over heating water.
  • Traditional Steam Wand - The commercial-grade stainless steel wand swivels 360° to get at those hard-to-reach angles.
  • Pre-Infusion - Low water pressure gently infusions all the grounds to extract the most flavor from the coffee.
  • Spacious Water Tank - More water means less time spent on running to the faucet to replenish.
  • Built-In Water Filter - The water filter keeps the water soft and impurities out.
  • Quick Start Up - Just seconds after powering on the Duo-Temp, the boiler is ready to brew a delicious espresso shot or steam milk.
  • Auto Purge - Get that second cup of espresso quickly with the auto purge function that drops the temperature from steaming to brewing.
  • Internal PID - Even though you can’t control the PID, the Duo-Temp stands out from other espresso machines in this price range with accurate temperature control.
  • Counter Saver - The petite size saves space without sacrificing features and function!
  • Noisy - This small machine produces some loud acoustics when in use, especially when it auto-purges.
  • No Programmability - You have to control how long you extract your shot and how hot and frothy you want your milk.
How Does it Compare?

The Breville Duo-Temp Pro features and functions place it competitively between the Saeco Via Venezia and Breville Infuser. The Duo-Temp has more features than the Via Venezia, such as non-pressurized portafilter baskets, and comes in at a lower price point. Compared to the Infuser, the Duo-Temp is only missing the programmable volume controls.

Tips and Tricks

While Breville advises you to turn off the Duo-Temp when it's not being used, we discovered that it will turn off in standby mode and reduce the risk of burning out the boiler.

what is the difference between Breville Duo Temp Pro and Breville Infuser (BES840XL)?
Elizabeth D on Aug 7, 2016
Breville Duo-Temp Pro BES810 Espresso Machine
Breville Duo-Temp Pro BES810 Espresso Machine
Breville Infuser Espresso Machine BES840XL - Stainless Steel - Open Box
Breville Infuser Espresso Machine BES840XL - Stainless Steel - Open Box
Best Answer: Hey Elizabeth!

The Duo-Temp Pro is very similar to the Infuser. Mainly, the Infuser adds a bunch of features that makes it easier to use than the basic, manual controls on the Duo-Temp.
It has:
- A built-in pressure dial (makes it easier to dial in non-pressurized portafilter baskets)
- Time-programmable buttons for single and double shots
- Hot water spout! for tea or Americanos
- Side-mounted steam controls

Would the baratza encore grinder work with this machine?
A shopper on Aug 11, 2016
Best Answer: The Encore will grind just fine for the Duo-Temp's pressurized portafilter baskets. But, it won't be consistent enough for the nonpressurized baskets.

Hope this helps!

can this device use ese pods?
A shopper on Jul 2, 2016
Best Answer: Nope! the Duo temp's basket is a little too big for ESE Pods. However, it does include pressurized baskets for pre-ground beans.

We just bought this machine after our 13 year old Starbucks Barista gave up the ghost. I'm having trouble getting much crema on top of my shots. Is this usually due to grind size? I'm having better luck with the pressurized porta filters, but not nearly the creamy crema we are used to from the Barista. Any help much appreciated.
A shopper on Nov 29, 2016
Best Answer: We had the same problem when switching from our Seco aroma. Two things... Pack your grounds tighter & we purchased the breville grinder pro and it grinds the beans so much finer than our old cusinart grinder it makes a huge difference!

I am very picky when it comes to the taste of the espresso shot and since we have bought the breville Grinder I have LOVED every coffee I have made! It is really worth the investment for a good grinder with this machine!

Greg in Niagara falls just saying HOWDY! I'm wondering what material is the filter/ sieve holder made of? Is it aluminum or stainless steel or something else? Thank you for your assistance! Best regards to Gail as well!
Hugo Agogo on Apr 29, 2017
Best Answer: No offense Joshua, but I dont think they are stainless steel. The outside of the basket rubs off some metal. It seems like aluminum. Very disappointing, to say the least.

Perhaps it's from the spring that holds the basket in the portafilter? Either way, something non-SS is in there.

Where is the access to the water tank? We have a cabinet above the space for our espresso maker and lifting the lid to put in water can be an issue. Can I have the dimensions of the machine when the lid is raised?
Catherine A on Sep 13, 2016
Best Answer: I have mine under the cabinet and I can remove the tank thanks to how they designed it. You pull it up a few inches and then slide it out from behind the machine. My cabinants are the typical 17-18 inches over the counter. Since I only make one cup per day for myself, I usually use a measuring cup and pour water into the tank.

Can I get my milk up to at least 165 or 170 with this machine? I'm so tired of having to put milk in the microwave after steaming it in my old machine.
Rebecca K on Aug 15, 2017
Best Answer: Sure! Since its a manual wand, you can steam to whatever temperature you like.

hi, what is the portafileter size?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2017
Best Answer: This Breville portafilter is 54mm!

I have a few questions: How does this machine compare to the Breville Duo Temp Pro? What is the difference between the Single Boiler in the Silva and the Thermocoil in the Duo Temp? Is one boiler better quality than the other?

Also, I might be wrong, but it seems like 54mm portafilter (on the Duo Temp) is not a common size? 58mm (Silva) seems more common. I also like that the Silva has a bottomless portafilter option. Can't seem to find a bottomless for the 54mm size.

Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine
Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine
Best Answer: The Silvia is definitely a more 'classic' machine. If you are stuck between the two it really comes down to your use case!

If you enjoy straight espresso, the Silvia will be a better choice with its full-sized portafilter and single boiler heat stability. However, if you are looking to make milk drinks often, the Silvia will suffer temperature inconsistency since you have to manually purge the boiler to drop temp between brewing and steaming.

But, if you are in search of a latte or cappuccino machine, or are sharing the machine with someone less than dedicated to espresso, you'll find that the Duo Temp is more convenient because it auto purges between brewing and steaming, and comes with pressurized (double wall) baskets to help get a decent espresso shot.

Hope this helps!

Am I going to have a dry puck after a shot?
John B on Aug 27, 2016
Best Answer: Hey John!

That depends on whether you use the pressurized portafilter basket or not. Non-pressurized baskets will give you dryer pucks.

Hope this helps!

Great Starter MachineReview by SeanT
I've had the machine for 6 months now and pulled roughly 150 shots through it. The first thing I noticed was the quality of the build both visually and physically. Breville produces quality products and this is no different.

I paired this machine with the Breville Smart Grinder Pro and I think that really makes in a difference in the quality of the shot. So far, no quirks or issues with the machine. It pulls a consistent shot every time. It comes with pressurized and non pressurized baskets, but don't be afraid to use the non pressurized even if you are new to espresso. I would highly recommend this model if you are looking for an entry level machine and are making 3 drinks or less at a time. If you are making more than that, consider a dual boiler system. But for your average home brewer, check this machine out. (Posted on 12/5/2017)
Practice makes perfect Review by Sean
Right out of the box I was not too happy with this machine, then I watched the startup video and got the settings on my grinder right as well as the tips on better brewing. I love, Love, LOVE this machine. I think if needed a machine to make more than 2 or 3 drinks at a time I would look into a higher grade machine, but for the money I don’t think you can beat it. WATCH THE STARTUP VIDEO. (Posted on 9/4/2017)
A good yearReview by Greg
I thought I was making good latte on my 20 year expresso machine. After it died, I took the plunge and bought this. I have been inhaling my morning coffee ever since. Then I got a better grinder and now purchase coffee from a local roaster. My old machine was a gift after college. This would be a great starter coffee machine. (Posted on 1/1/2017)
Generally pleasedReview by KayCee
I really love my Breville espresso machine. If I could change anything I would have all of the indicators "on" "off" etcetera etched in the metal .as a quality stainless cleaner will take the writing off. (Posted on 6/20/2016)
GREAT MACHINE!!!Review by Mike
This machine comes well equipped with 4 filter baskets (2 pressurized, 2 non-pressurized, each with a single and double basket). I was stuck using the pressurized for a while due to using pre-ground coffee and before I dialed in my grind on my dose control pro. I am pleased to say that this machine is able to reliably and quickly warm up, steam, and brew espresso with great performance. The magnetic tamper that is included is also a great feature i love about this machine as well as the heavy chrome plated brass, 54mm (tapered) portafilter unlike the cheap and light feeling aluminum portafilters found on cheaper machines like Delonghi machines. Brewing to steaming transition is about 20 seconds and it steams about 4 ounces of milk for a cappuccino in about 30 seconds so not the fastest like a heat exchange or dual boiler but GREAT for a single boiler (lets be honest, a dual boiler and heat exchange are impossible to get at this price point). It is a manual steam wand so there is some technique required but it does provide more control than a panarello. Overall, a great buy and even better performance. (Posted on 5/11/2016)
