Coffee made better with the Breville Bambino Plus


Delivering barista quality performance using a 54mm portafilter with 19 grams for full flavour and an automatic steam wand for milk texturing that delivers true handsfree microfoam at the right temperature, just as you would see from our top of the line the Oracle Touch.  With a 3 second heat up time from a cold start, along with instantaneous transition from extraction to steam, you can make a coffee even faster.” – Breville Canada

I just upped my coffee game!  Thanks to the Breville Bambino Plus this little machine is a dream to have and use.  I can make cafe quality cappuccinos at home now.  I can offer my guests a better cup of java than the regular drip and my kids are even enjoying it.  How? Warmed milk, Chai lattes(caffeine free, of course), hot chocolate too.  It’s so easy to use and warming up milk with froth is amazing. I love making my Americano’s,  Mocha Lattes and Mocha Cappuccinos too.  I even get a good froth using Cashew milk and a plant-based creamer.  I always get a little bent outta shape ordering a cappuccino at cafes because it ends up being a latte.  From my days as a barista at the various cafe’s that I worked at when I first moved to Toronto, I was taught that cappuccinos require foam.  Now apparently they don’t???  I never get the foam so I wanted to see what this little Bambino Plus could do.   Well, check out my cappuccino, below.  Does it look good?

This little machine delivers in quality.  Some of the things I adore is the automatic steam wand allows you to adjust the milk temperature and texture to suit your taste.  It also has the Innovative Thermojet™ heating system achieves the optimum extraction temperature in 3 seconds. You can pack 19 grams of espresso for full flavour and café quality coffee and with its low-pressure pre-infusion gradually increases pressure at the start and helps ensure all the flavours are drawn out evenly during the extraction for a balanced tasting cup.

So what do you think? Sounds pretty awesome, right?  I haven’t had any issues using my Breville Bambino Plus and I love making myself a cappuccino every day as it’s a special treat for me and luxury. I always rinse it out with hot water after every shot of espresso to keep the lines clean and it’s very easy to maintain.

This week, I’ve partnered with Breville and we are going to give one lucky winner a Breville Bambino Plus($699). Just in time for Mother’s Day!  Giveaway is open to Canada only(excluding Quebec) and I’d love to hear from you!  What little luxuries do you do for yourself or why do you want a Bambino Plus? As you can see, the size is perfect for our apartment sized kitchen!  Good Luck!

  8. Carmen | 7th May 19

    My little luxury is having an Americano. We live in small town Alberta and there is no drive through to any coffee shops. This means in order for me enjoy an Americano, I have to lug my kids around in and out just to enjoy a cup. Many days especially in the minus 40 weather the con definitely outweighs the little luxury I yarn for. So having the Breville bambino will allow my husband and I both to enjoy an Americano right at home. =)

    Thank you!
