Machine was wonderful for about 4 weeks. At that point, the frother kept giving me a “clogged” error message. I went through the routine to unclog it, as described on the touchscreen. This kept happening for days. I called Customer Service and was told to do a factory reset. That didn’t make a difference. At about the same time, I began having trouble with the brewing. The elapsed time before extraction became excessively long. I suspect a pump problem with the machine. I called Customer Service again and a replacement was arranged. 10 days elapsed before I had the replacement unit and I was supposed to return the 1st one. However, they sent me the more expensive Oracle Touch as a mistake. I called Customer Service again and was told I had to send back the Oracle Touch first, and once they received it, we could start the whole return process over. At this point, the machine has been out of service longer than it was working for me. I am a frustrated customer.

DO YOUR RESEARCH! Breville is clearly having problems with the Barista Touch heating design. My original unit from Amazon (purchased Dec 2018) would only reach a brew temp of 145F degrees AT THE MAX BREW TEMP SETTING. Espresso brew temps should be around 200F degrees. I contacted Breville and arranged for the exchange of a new unit, which they assured me had design changes to address this problem. It arrived and only achieved a brew temp in the same 145F range. I contacted Breville again who told me to return the product for a refund. They clearly have NOT addressed this issue and hope most people won’t notice. PLEASE DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY on this machine until Breville can solve this brew temp issue…YOU WILL NEVER BREW GREAT ESPRESSO at 145F degrees.

This brewer uses a strange water filter that can only be ordered from Breville! The cost is $13.00 as opposed to around $1.75 for all of their other machines. Not well supported!
