Breville Bambino Plus Review + Giveaway

*Disclosure: I did receive the product to be able to facilitate this blog post, As always all my opinions are my own*

For most adults, coffee is our savior, especially for us moms. Lattes have always been my favorite as brew coffee never agreed with my stomach. Luckily, a couple of years ago I received an espresso machine from my sister-in-law. Which I was forever grateful for as Starbucks can get pretty expensive. Recently, Breville sent me their latest espresso machine – the Bambino Plus. This has seriously stepped up my latte game and I wanted to share with you everything it has to offer.




  • 3Second Heat Up Time– Innovative ThermoJet heating system achieves the optimum extraction temperature in 3 seconds.
  • Automatic Microfoam Milk Texturing – The automatic steam wand allows you to adjust the milk temperature and texture to suit your taste. Delivering barista quality micro-foam that enhances the flavor of the coffee and is essential for creating latté art.
  • Low-Pressure Pre- Infusion– Low-pressure pre-infusion gradually increases pressure at the start and helps ensure all the flavors are drawn out evenly during the extraction for a balanced tasting cup.
  • Auto Purge– Automatically purging the heating system after steaming ensures your next espresso is extracted at the right temperature.
  • Customization–  You are able to set the amount of foam and temperature of each latte you create.
  • Compact Footprint- The perfect size for any kitchen.


My Experience


From the moment I opened the box I absolutely fell in love with this machine. We have quite a small kitchen and as such we have very little counter space so I appreciate the smaller footprint. However, it does stick out further than our old machine but so far that hasn’t been an issue. It was also quite handy that it came with a troubleshooting guide for making espresso. When using our old machine the espresso was sometimes coming out very black and bitter and we had no idea why. Thanks to the guide, we were able to figure out that our grind was too coarse and not packed enough – no more burnt coffee!


With our previous machine, we always had to heat our milk up in the microwave prior to frothing as it was never hot enough. However, the Bambino Plus allows you to be able to customize each cup. This means choosing how hot you like your coffee and how much foam. That is all thanks to the milk sensor that goes underneath your milk cup when you’re frothing it. When making my coffee I am so focused on drinking it that I often forget to purge the frother. Fortunately, this espresso machine automatically does this for you. No one likes a clogged machine! Speaking of drinking your coffee ASAP, the Bambino Plus heats up in just 3 seconds which is incredible. From start to finish you can be drinking your cup of coffee in just a couple of minutes.


Final Thoughts

If you’re in the market for an espresso machine that can compete with your local cafe this is for you. The texture that this machine gives to your milk is incredible and makes a totally customizable cup of coffee. It also is completely foolproof with the pressurized baskets and the hands-free milk frothing. I’m happy to pass on my usual Starbucks latte in exchange for coffee made right from my Bambino Plus in my home.


Thanks to our amazing partners at Breville we have a Bambino Plus espresso machine to giveaway to one lucky mama!

    I really love a latte, that would be my favourite way to enjoy my daily coffee, I just wish I could make them at home so for now I just have a basic cup of coffee with some cream every day unless I splurge (rarely) for a coffee out of the house.
