The Breville Dual Boiler does something special, offering both a prosumer, cafe level of performance, as well as a user experience that is relatively forgiving for those that are new to semi-automatic espresso making. Whether your barista skills are honed to a sharp point, or you're a newbie that wants to set yourself up for success with the best possible machine, we think the Dual Boiler will serve you well. On the experienced side, the machine offers two titular boilers, allowing you to pull a shot and steam milk simultaneously. This avoids the problem posed by most consumer machines that force your shot to sit and oxidize while the water heats up again to power the steam wand. It also provides many avenues of customization to most aspects of the brewing process. For beginners there is a friendly display that tells you the water temperature and how long the shot has been pulling for, as well as a pressure gauge that lets you know everything is running smoothly. Granted, all of this performance comes at a premium, and the Dual Boiler is one of the most expensive machines we've tested. But, if you're looking to get truly cafe-quality espresso in your home, this is one of the best options we've found short of spending multiple thousands of dollars on a professional level machine.
