Product description

Heston says that almost every ingredient tastes better when fresh, and coffee is no exception. The natural oils that give espressos and cappuccinos their rich flavour quickly degrade once the coffee bean is ground, so the Barista Express grinds fresh coffee straight into the filter for you, in exactly the right amount, then extracts the full, fresh flavour. With an expert array of features, carefully engineered for the most aromatic coffee you can make at home, it's no wonder Wendy said it was the best coffee she'd ever had! Fully automated with super easy controls, it's nearly impossible to make a bad cup of coffee with this intelligent, 15 bar pressure machine.

Grinds, doses and extracts - from whole bean to flavourful espresso in under a minute.250g bean hopper holds enough for 25 shots of espresso and has an integrated stainless steel conical burr grinder. Pre-ground beans can also be used.18 grind settings from coarse to fine.2 litre top-fill water tank with integrated water filtration.Adjustable dose so you can tailor to your taste.15 bar pressure builds gradually at first for an even extraction.Thermacoil heating system with adjustable temperature control.High power milk frothing arm.Instant hot water for long black coffees.Single and double filter baskets, 480ml stainless steel frothing jug and cleaning kit incl.

35 x 37 x 38cm H. 1700W.

Wow, I am impressed! I've always searched the market for an espresso machine that would look and perform like a commercial one and unfortunately I never came across one and so I ended up buying several DeLonghi machines over the last 15 years.

This is a Breville BES870XL, it's sold in the UK under the brand name Sage and I assume it's a new product to the UK (I might be wrong but I never saw Breville espresso machines before on Amazon UK). To make it short as soon as I saw this machine (after checking several positive reviews) I had to buy it.

The Barista Espresso is well built, solid, elegant, looks like a commercial machine, sounds like one and it makes really good coffee...milk too comes out perfectly! This machine is a world apart from anything I've used so far.
It's not easy to use, I'm still working hard to get the right shot every time, right in the middle of the recommended extraction zone, every shot varies depending on grind size, tamper pressure and coffee type, but the machine gives lots of feedback so whenever I get the right balance coffees and cappuccinos taste extremely good...I trust that with time it'll get a lot easier, for now I don't mind having to experiment with the Barista.

The Barista is fully configurable: grind size, grind amount (automatic or manual), coffee shot volume, H2O temperature, manual or automatic shot, hot water dispenser, commercial 360 steam wand, pressure dispersion between steam and shot operation, pre-infusion, pressure gauge, automatic stand-by........every function is thought with every-day use in mind!

The machine makes excellent coffee, but after 15 months the grinder stopped grinding properly.
Rang Sage Customer Services and asked about a new top burr, the machine was under their 2 year guarantee.
They denied it could be the burr. They refused to supply me with one by post saying only an engineer could replace the burr anyway.
This is clearly incorrect ... see page 26 of the Barista Express manual ... it has a handle/clip to enable the owner to take it out and clean it.
3 weeks later an engineer came from the south-midlands up to Northumberland and confirmed the burr was worn and replaced it.
Apparently the burr costs less than £20.
Beware ... Sage Customer Services are very, very frustrating.
Pity, it seems like a good machine.

People of Great Britain, this is a great espresso machine at an amazing price! Set aside your opinion of Heston Blumenthal, positive or negative, because he did not design or manufacture this machine. The credit goes to engineers and designers in Australia and factory managers in China.

Sage is made by Breville Australia. Breville in Europe is a different company from the Breville based in Australia. These machines are identical except for the voltage and name plate to those sold by Breville (US, Canada, Australia, etc), Gastroback (DE), Catler (CZ, SK) and Bar & Riviera (F) In particular, this is the equivalent of the BES870XL model, with only a different voltage/plug as well as VAT (hence the much higher price).

Note that the slightly different older model had a square bean hopper, no PID temperature control, no water spout.

Compare feature for feature and you will discover that no other machine comes close. Where else can you find PID temperature control, timed grinding, timed shots, automated cleaning, a pressure gauge?

Is it reliable? This is my third machine from the same origin. I am now living in Italy and left the other two back in the US, both working perfectly, because of the voltage mismatch. No one sells these machines in Italy. I chose this machine over something local, with local service.

Italy is the birthplace of espresso and the availability everywhere means that home espresso is not well developed. The Italian machines are either sturdy and primitive in comparison or flimsy and deliver poor results. Before my Dual Boiler and my Barista Express in the US I had a Rancilio Silvia for ten years. Sturdy indeed, but very difficult to control temperature, and very slow to warm up.

This machine makes great coffee. It really does. And it looks good. Also heats up quickly and the steaming lacks the power of more expensive machines, which means that it will be much easier to get decent froth if you're a beginner.

However, after living with it for a while i must say that it has an inferior grinder that doesn't produce consistent enough grind, resulting in poor extractions and inconsistent results from shot to shot. I hear your asking if I adjusted it appropriately. Yes, I did adjust it to get the 25sec extraction and tried a variety of distribution and tamping techniques. I can get consistently good results with my technique on other machines. Moreover because grinder and coffee machine are integrated it will warm up your beans which makes them lose their freshness. These points were highlighted by other reviewers but I ignored them. Do so at your own risk.

In addition, the portafilter is NOT a standard size. If you need accessories such as a tamper, different size filter baskets or a bottomless portafilter you are stuck with almost no options.

The machine developed a fault after 2 months of use and had to be sent to the manufacturer. I unfortunately bought through a big (apparently reputable) UK department store which meant that I had to send it back to them and not straight to the manufacturer. They add a 2 week delay as part of their standard process to "check the machine by a brand specialist". They then send it to the manufacturer which I was informed takes another 4-6 weeks to address the issue. So all in all you could be 2 months without a coffee machine if something goes wrong. It's been 4 weeks and I still haven't had any news or diagnosis despite several calls.
