Bambino Vs Bambino Plus

On a small kitchen counter, appliances can be tough to fit into the available space. Blenders and microwaves are likely already part of your kitchen's equipment. Does anyone know of a compact coffee maker?

Breville's espresso machines are "silver bullet" alternatives for home coffee drinkers who want to prepare barista-quality espresso drinks.

Breville's Bambino and Bambino Plus espresso machines are among the most popular on the market.

The Breville Bambino is a stylish, small, and high-quality espresso machine. Keep going, though. Models A and B are nearly interchangeable.

Despite the fact that these two coffeemakers share many similarities, they also have a few important distinctions.

  • The Bambino plus has a larger capacity for storing water to make coffee for your family than its predecessor. While the Bambino Plus can hold 1.9L of water, the Bambino can only hold 1.4L. You can serve more people if you have more space.

  • The Bambino Plus has an integrated temperature sensor, which is missing in its competitor model. This sensor allows you to determine the temperature of the milk you want to froth.

  • The automatic temperature and texture control is the feature that elevates Bambino Plus above the competition. If you like to add art to your latte or cappuccino, you should make microfoam with your milk. Even if you have no idea how to prepare microfoam with the right texture, Bambino plus makes it simple.

Because Bambino lacks this feature, frothing the milk may be difficult for beginners.

  • Although Bambino provides this option in manual mode, it requires a learning curve to achieve.

  • Bambino Plus automatically detects the temperature of the milk, how much air to add, and how much stirring is required to produce microfoam. You can also easily steam your milk or water with an integrated sensor.

  • The Bambino Plus allows you to select from a variety of color options to match the ambiance of your kitchen.

  • Bambino, on the other hand, is only available in stainless steel. While that is a common color, it is always a good idea to choose the one that you prefer.

  • Bambino plus comes with a metal tamper. It's also long-lasting. The Bambino, on the other hand, comes with a plastic tamper that feels a little cheaper than the Bambino plus tamper.

  • In addition, the Bambino plus comes with an extended warranty period. The Base Bambino comes with a one-year service warranty. However, with Bambino plus, you can enjoy two years of worry-free service.

Although the Bambino Plus appears to be a bit pricey in comparison to the ease and comfort it provides, we believe the price is justified.

However, if you are on a tight budget and are willing to go through the learning curve of manually frothing milk to achieve a nice texture, the Base Bambino is not a bad machine.

It will primarily allow you to enjoy espresso and Americano-style beverages.
