Get a great cup of espresso – from bean to brew – in less than a minute. This espresso maker grinds the beans right before brewing, and its interchangeable filters and a choice of automatic or manual operation ensure perfect results from beginner and connoisseur alike.

  • Choose from automatic and manual settings.
  • Built-in conical sintered-steel burr grinder produces precise grinds (15 settings from fine to coarse).
  • Airtight round coffee bean hopper preserves freshness and aroma.
  • Razor-precise grind dosing dispenses the correct amount of coffee for either single or double shots and can be adjusted to your preferences.

  • Low-pressure preinfusion of coffee for optimal extraction.
  • Adjustable brew temperature.

  • 360-degree swivel steam wand with frothing nozzle froths milk for lattes and cappuccinos.

  • Extra-large water tank and dedicated hot-water outlet.
  • Dry-puck feature removes excess water from grinds after extraction, resulting in an easily removable "puck" for fast cleanup.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good espresso while it lasted. I own other Breville kitchen appliances and have been very happy with them. Therefore, I expected the Barista Express to be a good reliable product, and I was pleased with the espresso it produced. I took excellent care of the machine, and anticipated enjoying it for a long time. Unfortunately, after 17 months, the pump died. I researched this issue and found that my experience was far from unusual. Repair was not a good option as it was quite expensive and the machine was out of warranty. More importantly, given the high failure rate of various parts of the machine, the likelihood was too high that something else would soon go wrong. In the end, I decided to cut my losses and not throw good money after bad. I now own a far more expensive but far more reliable Italian made machine that makes far better espresso.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wsste of money Terrible machine. Breville suggested always using double walled filters. Single wall filters are recommended for best results but are difficult to get to adequate pressure. Have never had a hot latte. Follow all instructions but milk doesn't get hot. Sometimes the steamer simply stops working before I turn it off. All in all, too much effort for too much money to get poor results . Don't bother with this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this! Let me start by saying that I have a short attention span. I hate reading instructions, and my work schedule leaves me with little time. I used the quick start instruction guide. My first cup was good. By the second try, I felt like a pro. This will get daily use at my house. While pricey, it saves me money in the long run. I wanted a quality machine that was relatively easy to use, that didn't require plastic cups that are terrible for the environment. This machine nailed it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine I did quite a bit of research before I decided on this particular model, and I'm extremely pleased. It has many components that allow you make adjustments to pull your perfect shot of espresso, but not so many that it seems confusing. I also have a friend who has been a barista, and her family has this machine. They love it. She did warn me to be careful with it, because the pump might stop working after two years (I had read this on some reviews). That's what happened to hers, but she also said, "My dad takes terrible care of it and makes at least two lattes a day." That being said, with good care I expect it to last a long time and continue being excellent!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from once you learn how to use it, you'll love it at first we thought about returning it, but then we went to my sister who had one and learned how to get the espresso right. i wish it had a bell go off when it hit the right pressure, and verbally suggest what I could do to get better pressure.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great espresso, terrible machine My machine gave me trouble at about the 10 month mark. I wasted a lot of expensive beans over the next four months. Not sure how this product has such a high rating because a little research will show that my experience is not atypical. Buyer beware.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Some Like It Hot When I was looking to buy an espresso maker, I wanted a good one and this one had excellent reviews. I don't know if it is my espresso maker in particular, but I cannot get a hot cup of espresso from this machine. I talked to someone at Breville and they were very nice and walked me through the procedure. They tried to blame the beans that I was using... Well, I have tried other beans and ground espresso. I still have yet to get a hot cup of espresso. Last night, I had a cup of espresso at friends' house - they have a Nepresso - the espresso was hot and delicious, much better than I have been able to get from this very expensive machine. Get the Nepresso - I sure wish I did!! I am going to look into returning it as soon as I finish this review.
