I have two of the Brevilles, both the Express and the Pro, and IMO they're superior to any but the most expensive super-automatics because they don't break as easily (knock on wood). Yes, you have to take the extra step of grinding, tamping, and then brewing, but it's like 20 seconds more and, because you're doing it yourself, you don't need to deal with broken parts along the chain of automation. My Breville Express is 5+ years old and going strong. Bought a super-expensive Saeco super-automatic for the office and it broke. We've had a devil of a time finding anyone nearby who can service it. YMMV.

Also, the Breville-type models allow you to use preground beans which you pour into the portafilter directly, bypassing the grinder, and then you don't need to worry about using only non-oily beans (which is something I've been told to do with my superautomatics so as not to clog up the attached grinder). You can use any number of preground beans rather than sticking with whatever happens to be in your hopper.

If you want to make the Breville process even easier and neater, check out some of the small businesses on Etsy who sell 54" portafilter dosing funnels. Folks make them with 3D printers, I believe, and they fit right onto the portafilter and eliminate all mess from the grounds spilling over the sides. After grinding the beans into the portafilter with the funnel collar attached, you just use the tamper with the collar still on, then remove the collar and infuse the espresso. It's been a game-changer for me. My 2 cents; you may feel overcharged. ;-)
Some of the superauto brands are parent / child companies of other brands. E.g. Gaggia is owned by Saeco. And Saeco is owned by Philips. So parts among the three may be similar.

Great value for an automatic. Wish the newer auto milk frother models like the Delonghi Dinamica Plus and the Gaggia Cadorna Prestige were able to be found sub $1k but I think it will be a while. Philips 3200 with lattego a solid value too, but I hear performance from the OG superauto Italian brands are hard to beat.

Or even a deal on the Gaggia Magenta Prestige. I'm getting tired of making coffee everyday , because no one wanna learn how to use the Breville Bambino I bought last year.

I got Breville Barista Pro for $550 last week. Now I'm debating if I should return Breville and get this one. I know it's auto vs semi auto. Is it difficult to use semi auto?

Not difficult but the fully automatics are just quicker and easier. No need to tamp and less cleanup per use.

The only problem I have with automatics compared to the semi automatics is that the automatics are harder and more expensive to fix. Still a great deal on an automatic, thumbs up.

I bought the Gaggia magenta prestige last December (~$750) and wish I had bought the machine sooner. I've been through so many over the years: keurig, Nespresso, breville and the Philips 3200. The Gaggia brews a very fine cup without all the overhead of prep and cleaning up. There are so many settings that you can tweak to perfect your beverage. It grinds some perfect coffee pucks for an automatic. Absolutely love it!

Looking at the pictures on Amazon, this comes with a grinder already? I'm guessing you can use the built in grinder or grind beans separately (or use pre-ground beans but I doubt I will do that).

It can use grounds through the bypass dozer but honestly doesn't work that well. That's better for the rare cup of Decaff then as a regular fixture.

I've had this machine for 5 years, it's a great machine just need to take care of it, Whole Latte Love will also probably price match this if Amazon runs out. This is the best entry level super automatic on the market, period
