To my surprise, the hardest part of the whole setup process was carrying the box up the four flights of stairs to my apartment. After conquering that harrowing task, I proceeded to unbox the Barista Pro and found so many extras included: a portafilter, tamper, multiple filter baskets, The Razor (Breville’s specially designed trimming tool), a stainless steel milk jug, a cleaning kit, and water filer. After I perused the pretty straightforward instructions, I soaked the water filter, filled the water tank, and went straight to Breville’s Youtube channel to watch some instructional videos before attempting to make my first drink. I decided to stick with the machine’s factory settings, but you can totally customize the grind size, brew temperature, and extraction time based on your preferences and/or what works best with the beans you’re using. There are also options to pull a single shot or a double (I prefer a double).
