Breville Barista Express review: Excellent espresso at home for (relatively) less

 

In my experience, there are two types of espresso drinkers. The first set doesn't care where their elixir comes from, how much it costs or how it's made, as long as they get it fast. A second group dreams about duplicating espresso alchemy at home, on...

The semi-automatic Breville Barista Express brews better espresso than more expensive machines. It's comparatively easy to use and keep clean, plus it has an attractive stainless-steel design. It also has a built-in burr grinder for hassle-free coffee...

The Breville Barista Express requires some effort to operate compared with fancy super-automatic machines

The attractive, user-friendly Breville Barista Express makes delicious espresso, with outstanding value in a pricey category.

Great machine

Love/Hate Relationship

 

things, cleaned it every time it said to with the correct tablets and procedure, and never pushed down the coffee too hard. I believe there is a seal problem and would never buy another Breville coffee machine again after paying for what we thought was...

Great coffee machine

 

A lovely looking machine which is just so easy to use, even for me who is the furthest thing from a trained barista! The coffee tastes just like it does in an upmarket cafe. The built in coffee grinder on the top of the machine makes life easier too....
