Update: If you missed it last month, this deal is back.
Beyond Breville’s legendary design, build quality, and user interface improvements, what sets the Creatista apart is the milk steamer, which borrows almost everything from Breville’s $2500 Oracle Touch.
The Creatista’s steam wand lives up to the Nespresso pedigree: the product it produces is great, and far better than you’d expect from an automatic machine that uses pods. If you love espresso as a drink but not as a hobby, you can’t go wrong with this.
Yes, $360 is still a significant amount of money, but this machine makes lattes, cappuccinos, flat whites, and all those fancy drinks coffee shop charge $5+ for, so if you use it enough, it might actually save you a little money in the long run.
