  • Breville's New BES920 Dual Boiler Debut at Aroma this Sunday

    Just a heads up for all Snobs heading to Aroma Festival this weekend in Sydney, we'll be debuting our BES920 Dual Boiler. Never seen in public before, this is a significant ugrade to the highly successful BES900. We'll have 2 on display for use by anyone wanting to put it through its paces. Improvements include:

    2400W Heating system
    Descale access by the user
    Adjustable Steam Boiler Temp (pressure)
    Volumetrics: able to select either time based or volume based
    Exclusive Razor precision dosing tool

    We'll also have 4 Oracle espresso machines to test drive as well.

    Come down to Aroma & test drive one.

    Hope we catch up with plenty of Snobs!

    Cheers, Phil

        There were photos taken at the SCAA's 25th Exposition in Boston earlier this year.

            Hi Barry I think those pictures are of the Oracle (with built in grinder) not the 920

                  Jimmy, you are right. It looks like Breville will have both the Oracle and the 920 on show on their stand on the MCA lawn at The Rocks Aroma Festival in Sydney this Sunday.

                      What about the PF? is it going to have the bigger / rectangular shaped lugs as seen in the US on BES900b models, to stop the slipping?

                      If so are they going to be made available to BES900 owners ? will they fit? unless I religiously keep the seal / collar clean,(Every 10 shots or so) the PF slips and is giving me the sh....

                      Don't get me wrong, I am making some of the best coffee I have ever tasted on this machine, but it really seems to be a big design flaw to me.

                        Found this on a finnish forum, No4 sounds like the updated portafilter

                        The following list summarizes differences on BES920 compared to BES900:

                        1) Self descaling system - able to be descaled by the user
                        2) More accurate shot dose using a single flow meter design
                        3) Improved design on double spout
                        4) Improved design on filter holder ramps
                        5) Improved material on shower head o-ring to reduce corrosion
                        6) Improved filter baskets design to reduce puk sticking
                        7) Higher wattage (2400W)
                        8) Adjustable steam boiler temperature to allow high steam wand pressure
                        9) New 480ml jug matched to the capacity of the steam system

                            Just had a go at the Oracle machine at the festival. Dead easy to use and to make a great coffee and best of all no mess from the grinder! Would be a perfect machine for newbie that was considering a super automatic machine, but with all the benefits of a manual machine.

                              For sure, that's pretty much what I thought at SCAA too, has the appeal of a super auto and the output of a semi-auto. Biggest difference is that it doses a good amount of coffee into a real sizes group handle (unlike most superautos that only do 7 gram shots).
                              It should be a big hit with the white-goods store buyers.
