My Breville Espresso Coffee Machine
My Personal Breville Espresso Coffee Machine
This is my personal Breville Espresso coffee machine, photographed in my kitchen, where it has lived for the last 4 or 5 years.
It has been one of the most rewarding purchases I have ever made.
For the last 4 or 5 years (not sure exactly how long) it has made between 2 and 6 barista level mugs of coffee every day.
Day after day, without fail.
A combination of espresso shots, long blacks, lattes and cappuccinos. It has handled them all.
It has never failed to deliver a perfect coffee. It's absolutely brilliant.
Cost? Let's talk about cost.
I don't know what a mug of coffee prepared by a barista costs where you are, but here it's around $5 or more.
Some time after I bought my Breville, I created a spreadsheet to analyze the costs.
I ran it over the life of 1kg (around 2.2lbs) of coffee beans and factored in the other costs, such as milk and power.
A mug of coffee was costing me 15 cents!
So within a very short time, my espresso coffee machine had paid for itself.
But of course, that's not the real value.
The real value is being able to make a barista-level coffee whenever you want.
Like for example when you first get up in the morning.
Still in your pajamas, but craving your first coffee of the day.
Your machine is loaded up with fresh beans and fresh water and a minute later you're smelling the aroma of a freshly prepared coffee.
