Yeah, I love mine. Have had the Delonghi Lattissima touch and a Delonghi bean to cup and they haven't compared to this machine. I agree with the in built drinks, I have a list of my own ones that I have set up!
Thanks, I'd quite like to look into the art side. Ended up with a machine that did it all for me though... Not sure I'd have survived lock down without my Creatista Pro! Wonderful machine with a brilliant steam wand that does it all for you. (Not convinced by the in built drink settings, but easy enough to change. A flat white to me needs more texture on milk and hotter milk - a froth of 4 and the highest 'hot' setting - not very hot is my ideal).
Different Breville to the one in the UK - the name was sold off in the 80s hence the same products being sold under the name Sage Appliances. Heston is still associated with the brand: https://www.thefatduckgroup.com/partnerships/sage/
OP These are no longer sold as 'sage by heston', they are Sage Appliances, a brand of BREVILLE, not sure how they (breville) justify the markup tbh.
Okay, might still take a look as I want to polish up my coffee art skills. Can't quite get it right...
