Introduction

The Breville Dynamic Duo is one of the company’s best machines for delivering third-wave specialty coffee, all from the comfort of your home. The machine uses two boilers, has temperature control features, offers steam capabilities, and so much more. With its flexible shot control and smart grinder, it is a highly efficient machine that’ll give you a balanced and flavorful drink every single time. Along with its consistency in consistently producing a great cup of coffee, the Dynamic Duo is very durable and has a reasonably extended warranty to fall back on.

Precise and Repeatable Extraction

The Dynamic Duo has temperature control features that bring water to the right temperature to extract as much flavor as possible from the coffee.

Grind Intelligently with The Smart Grinder Pro

The Dynamic Duo is fitted with the Smart Grinder Pro – a grinder that allows you to grind into the portafilter directly. The Smart Grinder Pro’s Dosing iQ technology enables you to program grind time down to 0.2-second increments; this gives you more control than ever before. The Dynamic Duo offers 60 unique settings and has a lot of options for dose sizes.

19-22 Grams Dose for Full Flavor

The Bambino Plus prioritizes delivering consistently balanced espresso by controlling the dose to ensure it’s just the right amount. By using the 54 mm portafilter with a 19-22 g dose, you can be sure that you’ll get a full-bodied and flavorful drink every time.

Microfoam Milk Texturing

This machine makes use of a self-cleaning steam wand which is powered by a dedicated boiler. The magic of this wand is that it automatically textures milk to the perfect consistency and produces professional-level microfoam. This foam enhances the flavor of your coffee and makes it possible to create latte art from the comfort of your kitchen.

Flexible Shot Control

The Dynamic Duo allows you to choose between one shot, two shots, or even manual control to decide how much espresso you want in your cup every time.

Warranty

This product has a warranty of 2 years. The length of this warranty shows Breville’s confidence in the durability of this machine.
