Product Description

Color: Stainless Steel

Good crema from fresh beans
The difference is clear: espresso made from beans ground one minute ago (left) produces crema that is noticeably more rich and thick than espresso made from beans ground ten days ago (right). The verdict? Fresh beans are always preferable.
Dual wall filters, 54mm
Included dual wall filters provide excellent practice for budding baristas
Single wall filters, 54mm
Included single wall filters provide a more challenging experience for those who have already mastered the art of espresso
Good crema from fresh beans
Convenient hidden storage compartment for the filters and included cleaning kit.
Barista Express portafilter with commercial style spouts
Hands-free filling for the portafilter directly from the integrated burr grinder

Fresh is Best

In the world of coffee, freshness can be measured in seconds. By the time even five minutes has passed, ground beans have started to lose their flavor. Grinding beans every time you want fresh espresso takes time, though, and oftentimes it becomes a tradeoff between taste and convenience. The Breville Barista Express solves this problem, delivering fresh, quality espresso at remarkable speed, thanks to its integrated burr grinder. Go from beans to espresso in under a minute—all in the comfort of your own home.

Café quality espresso in your home

Espresso making is notorious for being both an art and a science, requiring you to carefully adjust each of the inputs (grind size, grind amount, etc.). But even complete beginners and aspiring baristas can pull a perfect shot from the Breville Barista Express. For beginners, it comes with two dual-wall, pressurized filters that regulate pressure and help optimize the extraction. For more experienced baristas, the Barista Express includes two single-wall, non-pressurized filters that give you more room to experiment with different grind sizes, grind amounts, and tamping pressure. As either a crash-course or a continuation study, the Barista Express gives you free rein to explore the art of espresso.

In addition to its integrated burr grinder, the Breville Barista Express has an Italian-manufactured 15 bar pump and thermocoil heating system that ensures accurate regulation of water temperature for a full-flavored espresso. A pre-brew function and flat shower head make sure that the water is optimally distributed through the coffee puck. The Barista Express also has several helpful features, such as a cup warmer on the top of the machine and a feature that removes excess water from the filter basket after coffee extraction, so the used grounds form a dry puck for quicker cleanup. Lastly, it has a stainless steel 360 degree swivel-action steam wand for lattes and cappuccinos.

For beginners and aspiring baristas alike, the Barista Express makes good espresso accessible and easy to make.

Designed with the consumer in mind

The Breville Barista Express is built from high-quality materials so the resulting machine is as sturdy as possible. No-slip feet keep the machine from sliding across the counter when the burr grinder is activated. The Barista Express is housed in a sleek stainless steel casing, making it an attractive and timeless addition to any kitchen. The entire unit is easy to clean and comes with a hideaway storage compartment for the included cleaning tools, in addition to an easily removable drip tray.

  2. Grind size and grind amount selector dials: choose among grind settings from fine to coarse and adjust the amount of freshly ground espresso dosed into the filter basket.

  4. 54mm tamper: for expert tamping control. With magnetized storage, but removable for easy tamping.
  5. Hands-free grinding cradle: push portafilter into cradle and freshly ground espresso will be dispensed directly into the filter. Grinder automatically stops when the indicated amount has been dispensed.

The infusion gauge is really helpful to see where you need to adjust your grind, tamp or coffee amount to get a proper shot.

Color Name: Stainless Steel
I have not written reviews before, but I have been a coffee, capucchino drinkers for years. Although I don't claim to be an expert in any sense of the word, I think that I am knowledgeable about making a good espresso and cappuchino. I read the 4 reviews that were posted on this machine prior to writing my own review, and I felt this machine deserved my review as well. Although this machine is not perfect and does require some trial and error over days/weeks, I think that it does a great job for the price and is well worth the investment!!!!!

I have had my machine for over a month now. I make 3-6 capuchino's a day for my wife and I. Compared to the Starbuck's espresso/capuchino barista machine we bought years ago, this machine is wonderful. We were inspired to buy it when we were in Puerto Rico and had a latte/capuchino at the airport with Latte art. Not only did we enjoy the art work, we realized how poor our old espresso/capuchino machine was.

Appearance

Although appearance and looks aren't everything - lol -, it is important. I personally think that this machine is gorgeous and looks great on my kitchen countertop. I love the stainless steel. I love the way it is laid out. I love the way the tamper is held. I love the way it looks when you turn it on and the lighting that it has. Everything is easy to access. If you need to put in water and its under a counter top, you just pull the machine out so you have room to refill it or turn it sidewise. I have absolutely no complaints about the layout of the machine. I think the design is fabulous.

Burr Grinder

On the good side, I must say that it is fabulous having a grinder on the machine that directly feeds grinds into the container that you make your espresso in.

Color Name: Stainless Steel Verified Purchase
I've had the Breville BES870XL for about a week now, and I'm thoroughly pleased with the product and the quality of the espresso it can make. I upgraded from a simpler machine and a separate burr grinder, and one of the attractive features of the BES870XL was the integrated grinder. The other thing that appealed to me was the ability to adjust lots of features.

In the first few days, I experimented a lot with grind fineness (it can grind VERY fine - I'm quite pleased with the grinding function), the amount of grounds, and how hard I tamped the grounds. These three things, along with the amount of water (pre-programmed or manually controlled) can affect the extraction of the espresso. Since I like to obsess over coffee, I was quite happy to spend a few days figuring out just the right balance of these various things. My partner, however, was quite agitated that she couldn't simply make a decent espresso like we had been able to do with our previous machine. If you're impatient and don't like to experiment, this might not be the machine for you. However, after a few days I have now made some of the most delicious espresso I've ever drunk, and certainly the most delicious espresso I've ever made at home.

Initially, we had problems with the pressure. The gauge never went past "pre-infusion" stage, into the ideal espresso extraction range. The espresso came out too runny and had little to no crema. Even at the finest setting, filling the portafilter as much as possible and tamping as hard I could, I couldn't get that gauge to get above the pre-infusion stage. If this happens (or has happened) to you, don't give up, just read on here. I called Breville and got great customer service.

I more than "like" this machine so 4 stars isn't adequate but it's not truly 5 star rating.
(previous experience with espresso machines: Delonghi Magnifica & random other non-fully auto machines)

Pros: Makes an excellent (espresso, latte etc). Use good, fresh coffee and you won't be disappointed.
The infusion gauge is really helpful to see where you need to adjust your grind, tamp or coffee amount to get a proper shot.
Love the inclusion of the "pre-infusion" stage as well as the ability to minutely adjust your coffee shot to be the way you want it.
Milk is easy to steam, properly...unlike so many consumer machines on the market.
The wand is much easier to clean than most consumer machines. No dis-assembly required.
Grinder is very nice...easily adjustable to whatever grind you prefer and can grind extremely fine. You don't have to have the machine turned on to adjust it.
The storage space for the tamper is perfectly designed.
It comes with a milk pitcher. A nice bonus
I neglected to mention that it comes with 4 baskets (2 dual wall for pre-ground coffee and 2 single wall) as well as a cleaning kit.
I was also impressed with the sturdy build of the machine. None of the components feel or look flimsy.

Cons: Messy. It makes a great cup but just be prepared for a mess (coffee grounds) every time. Coming from a fully auto machine, the mess is going to take some getting used to...
Water tank in back. This is very inconvenient for kitchens with top cupboards without a lot of space btw the counter and cupboard.

Overall this is the best consumer machine I've used so far. I'm very impressed.
