Breville Espresso Maker |BES870BSS| The BARISTA EXPRESS #espressomaker
Product Description Videos Reviews BES870XL/ BES870BSS| Breville the Barista Express A barista will quickly tell you that the most important ingredient to deliver an amazing espresso is to use fresh beans and grind them as close to the time of use as possible. Actually, it's best to limit the time between grinding and extraction to seconds, not minutes. That's why we've built a grinder into the Barista Express espresso machine. The in-built conical burr grinder allows you to grind only what you need directly into the portafilter. It's fully adjustable in grind size and dose, so you can tweak to taste. The patented Razor dosing tool trims the puck for consistent extraction, while PID digital temperature control delivers accurate water temperature throughout the extraction. The Barista Express, with its integrated conical burr grinder and dosing control, helps deliver the optimum path for beans to espresso in under a minute, ensuring a smooth and thick créma. The measured dose is delivered straight into the coffee filter to maximize luscious créma with every extraction. A low-pressure pre-infusion stage just before espresso extraction allows the coffee grounds to expand, therefore creating a more even extraction, and better taste. With a dedicated hot water outlet, impressive steam pressure and dual and single wall filters available for use, you'll move from novice to barista in no time at all.

Posted by Unknown on 21st Dec 2015 Love the product, excellent price at Forum, fast delivery, thanks guys :). The only thing that I have to say is that it will take some time till you find the best setting for your coffee bean and the amount you'lk need to put in to get that crema espresso coffee. After a few weeks I still think I get too much grinded and I ended up with too much, which I use later. 5 Superb espresso machine Posted by Unknown on 16th Dec 2015 This is a beautiful espresso machine we bought from forum appliances (which we highly recommend for the excellent service,fast shipping and great price) , very nice quality finishing, perfect for the espresso lover who likes to personalize their coffee experience. The machine is easy to operate and adjusting the settings to achieve the perfect espresso is really fun. Highly recommend. 5 Finally amazing espresso at home Posted by Vlad on 4th Dec 2015 I used simple coffee makers at home before (Turkish coffee pot, drip and regular coffee makers) but was not happy with my every morning drink. So I spent couple days on studying about espresso makers and decided to give a try to Breville Barista. I chose this model because it has a built-in coffee grinder so you don't need to buy it separately and keep extra item on your kitchen. Well no my wife and me both start every morning enjoying a wonderful coffee I make. Using exactly the same coffee there is a huge difference in a flavor. I do recommend it to everybody who likes starting their day with a good coffee. BTW thanks to forum appliances for the best price on this machine. 5 Finally a great cup of coffee Posted by Linda Louise on 18th Sep 2014 I love this machine. I thought I would be happy with the cheaper ($200) Breville but returned it and tried this one. Life has been great ever since. So very easy to make a cup of expresso with just the push of several buttons. No guessing...no mussing. It was definitely worth the extra money if you love your coffee.
