The Duo-Temp Pro is the ultimate gift that keeps on giving, especially if you’re looking for cafe-quality coffee, saving you time and money at the coffee shop. This expert espresso machine, from top kitchen appliance brand Breville, makes premium lattes and cappuccinos thanks to its low-pressure pre-infusion to ensure all flavours are drawn out during extraction for great balance.
“My husband bought me this for my birthday over 10 years ago and I still use it daily. I would not say it is perfect (it still need cleaning, sometimes it plugs) but it is better than paying $5 every morning for my mocha,” says one five-star review.
Designed for an experienced barista and javaphile, its also built with a high-power 1600-watt element to deliver sufficient steam to create micro-foam, enhancing flavour and perfect for creating latte art. But with that said, as intimidating as it looks, like all kitchen appliances, you can easily become a pro with the proper handling and practice.
“This machine really produces fine coffee. It is not for the timid. Getting it just right will take some time.
It is very consistent,” says another five-star review.
