The Breville Die-Cast Programmable BES830XL is a high-end espresso machine. This product prominently features pre-programmed espresso settings for novice users. A built-in pressure gauge, 2.2 liter tank and individual hot water/steam wands make this espresso machine unique compared to lower-end models.

The 15-bar BES830XL features what Breville calls Custom Set Programming: two different modes allowing either automatic or customized operation. Auto mode will release the right amount of hot water into the ground coffee, while custom mode allows the user complete control over the machine. Unlike most entry-level espresso machines, this model features individual hot water and steam wands for greater efficiency. The front facing pressure gauge assists users by helping them find the best pressure for advanced extraction purposes. A tamping tool, measuring spoon, steel filters, cleaning tool and frothing pitcher are included in the box.
