Breville to the Rescue…Once Again!


My husband popped in, mid-day, to grab his forgotten lunch and to give me a kiss.  Okay, truth be told, I think he wanted another shot of espresso.  So, he hit the grinder button and…nothing.  It didn’t work.  He cleared out the grinds, checked the cord and still…nothing.  “You have got to be kidding!” he said.  “We’ve had this grinder (Cuisinart) for less than a year.”


He gave me a kiss, grabbed his lunch and headed back to work.  I hopped in my ‘burban and went to the mall.  I walked straight in to Williams and Sonoma, directly to the coffee section (I know it by heart) and found what I was looking for…Breville’s Conical Burr Grinder.  I quickly put in my request to the saleslady, she hunted down the box in the storage unit and I swiped my card.


When I returned (ok, after a quick stop at Anthropologie…they are right next to each other in the mall!) I unpacked this baby, threw away the other, placed it right next to my Brev and filled it with beans.  My pulse began to slow down as the liquid love poured out.  Now, all is right with the world.


Thank you once again Breville for coming along with me on my daily journey!

P.S. This is not a paid endorsement.  The above is a genuine expression of my gratitude for all things Breville.

  1. Ha! My husband & I always go into Williams Sonoma and have them give us demonstrations on the coffee machines….so that we, of course, get to try the free shots of espresso. Mischevious, I know…especially since we own a Jura Capresso, Impressa E8 model. It has lasted us well for 3 years, and I love it…but I wouldn’t be heartbroken if he died so that I could try a new adventure, perhaps a Breville. Oh, and I went to anthropologie the other day too…and COMPLETELY took photos thinking of you 2! I will share them soon. Been on a little blogging hiatus, but will be back soon!

  2. *big sigh* A Brev is on the top of my most wanted list. (My b-day is in September???)

    I am sure you made your husband’s day!

  3. We’re on our second one of those cuisinart grinders. When we replaced the first one I thought about the Breville, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. I hope yours works out–I’ll be emailing you for an update when our Cuisinart gives up again!

  4. Funny thing. Those are the very two stops I make every time I’m at the mall. Ha! Enjoy the coffee. Looks fantastic!
