Don’t you just love those shiny, almost-steampunk machines that professional baristas use to prepare your drink? They’re always hissing and bubbling and being impressive. Those pro-level machines can cost thousands of dollars, but now for mere hundreds you can have some of that hot espresso action in your own home.
Breville is a dominant name in the professional coffee machine business. Just by looking at this Barista Express you can tell they know what a coffee machine is meant to look like.
However, this machine doesn’t just look the part.
It has the gold-standard conical burr grinder system, which can precisely grind both texture and amount. For the perfect mix. The water is heated using digital temperature control, which means your grind will release exactly as much flavor as it’s meant to. The grinding process is hands-off with a simple dial to choose how big the grind should be. It can produce single and double shots, coming with all the accessories you could possibly want.
Now, while the Barista Express might seem a little pricey for a coffee machine, it’s an incredible bargain for a machine of this class. It’s simply not possible to make espresso to the precise quality this machine can achieve using home-grade equipment. So if you really love espresso and are serious about your coffee, it’s worth every dollar.
