General info

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.volume

51046.38cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
5.width

330mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.Uses ground coffee
Breville Duo-Temp
Ground coffee, especially if freshly roasted and ground, results in much better quality coffee than the kind of results you get with pods or capsules.

Components

1.Has a pressure gauge
Breville Duo-Temp
One of the most important aspects to pulling a great espresso is the amount of pressure used. Aspects such as how tightly tamped the portafilter is can affect the pressure and therefore the overall quality of the extraction. A pressure gauge helps you to adjust your process to achieve a perfect 9 bar of pressure.
2.Has a steam wand
Breville Duo-Temp
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
3.Has a 58mm portafilter
Breville Duo-Temp
A 58mm portafilter is the most common size in the industry, offering a greater range of accessories to purchase such as portafilter baskets and tampers.
4.Has a commercial steam wand
Breville Duo-Temp
It comes with a commercial style steam wand as opposed to a pannarello steam wand. These are harder to master but can allow you to produce better, richer milk froth.
5.Has an integrated grinder
Breville Duo-Temp
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
6.Has a display
Breville Duo-Temp
The device has an electronic display to present information to the user.
7.Has cup warmer
Breville Duo-Temp
With a cup warmer you can heat the cups before pulling your espresso so that it doesn't go cold quickly, which affects the taste and quality. It also means that you don’t have to manually heat them using hot water.
8.Has anti-burn steam wand
Breville Duo-Temp
Steam wands are a fairly common source of burns when using espresso machines. An anti-burn steam wand has a lining inside that prevents the wand from getting scalding hot.
9.Has burr grinder
Breville Duo-Temp
A burr grinder works in such a way that you can get a consistent, uniform size of grind each time, which is one of the key aspects of getting great tasting espresso. On the other hand an inferior blade grinder often leaves you with an inconsistent grind.

Water source

1.Has PID controller
Breville Duo-Temp
A PID controller controls the temperature of the boiler electronically. It offers a far greater degree of accuracy and consistency than a regular, mechanical thermostat used to control temperature. This is very important as a temperature of around 92°C to 96°C is key to pulling the perfect espresso.
2.Has integrated filter
Breville Duo-Temp
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
3.Water tank is transparent
Breville Duo-Temp
With a transparent water tank you can easily see when it needs to be filled up. This is important as attempting to make an espresso with an empty tank can damage the machine.
4.Has a removable water tank
Breville Duo-Temp
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
5.Has direct water connection
Breville Duo-Temp
The coffee machine can connect directly to the water supply. This ensures you never have to refill the machine with water.
6.Has a hot water outlet
Breville Duo-Temp
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.

Maintenance

With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.
2.Has cleaning alert
Breville Duo-Temp
The machine alerts you when it requires cleaning.
3.Has dry puck feature
Breville Duo-Temp
At the end of the extraction process, all moisture is removed from the puck. This allows you to easily tap out the coffee from the portafilter afterwards, reducing mess and the need to clean it as often.
4.Prevents overheating
Breville Duo-Temp
It has an internal fuse/thermal sensors which prevents the machine from overheating.
5.Has sleep mode
Breville Duo-Temp
After a certain period of being idle, the device will switch to a sleep mode to conserve power.

Features

1.Has a pre-infusion function
Breville Duo-Temp
With a pre-infusion function you get a low pressure of water before it ramps up to around 9 bar of pressure. This gently expands the grinds to get a smooth extraction and to help prevent channeling in the cake.
With a double boiler or heat exchanger system, you can brew and steam milk at the same time. This has an advantage over single boiler machines where you have to wait between brewing and steaming for the temperature to adjust.
These buttons can be programmed for different types of coffee such as an espresso, doppio or ristretto. This means once you have mastered a particular style of coffee, you can get it the same every time.
