I have an older version of Breville 800 XL I bought used.

https://www.amazon.ca/Breville-BRE800ESXL-Duo-Temp-Commercial-Espresso/dp/B00092ZVXA/ref=sr_1_4/153-1911979-8924147?ie=UTF8&qid=1472939398&sr=8-4&keywords=breville+800+xl

Doesn’t compare to nicer high-end espresso machines like something from Marzocco, but for a home machine does everything you want it to and more. Foam is silky smooth.

Main downside is that it can only heat up enough water for about 1.5 lattes (espresso shot + steaming the milk). You need to wait about 10 minutes before making a second one, or it’ll come out a little watery.

I ordered the Breville 800ESXL from amazon.ca on sale…. which it seems it still is. You have to pack your own espresso and tamp it manually, so no I wouldn’t say it’s ‘as good’ as a commercial cafe machine. I’ve seen pricier models that grind, and pack the espresso automatically. But the pressure is high enough to get a nice crema on the coffee, and the duo temp steams the milk without burning the espresso.
For the two of us the machine works just fine.
