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.
  • Integrated tamper with pressure guide.
  • Low-pressure preinfusion of coffee for optimal extraction.
  • Adjustable brew temperature.
  • A 15-bar Italian-made pressure pump ensures maximum extraction of flavor from the coffee.

  • 360-degree swivel steam wand with frothing nozzle froths milk for lattes and cappuccinos.
  • Two interchangeable sets of forged commercial-style filters: dual-wall filters create consistently perfect crema for beginners; single-wall filters allow more experienced brewers to experiment with grind size, volume and tamp force.
  • 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 4 out of 5 by from Does a nice job I like this machine, I used it for 6 months and it worked perfect, I cleaned it including the group head after every use. Because of stomach problems I decided to stop the coffee for a while. I descaled and cleaned it according to the manual before I stopped using it. After about one year I decided to go back, I filled with water, set it up for 2 cups turned it on and all I got was a buzz. Forgetting how long I owned it, I should have got more then 6 months of use out of it. It cost $267.00 to send it to Breville for repair. But I still like it so 4 stars. I will say one thing, my first express machine was a Krupp, used it for 6 years without a glitch.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from great machine UNTIL... have the machine oh about 18 months and the parts go bad--pump, valves, tubes, etc and but the worst part is the parts aren't sold by the retail stores and are typically on back order. I've been waiting for nearly 4 weeks. I knew some of the parts were on back order so I ordered all of the major parts so when the next piece goes bad, I am ready. I wouldn't purchase again or recommend. The machine is also very loud so not great for guests/family sleeping in a room near the kitchen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best espresso/cappuccino maker Used every Italian made espresso/cappuccino maker since 1988 and this one is the BEST! No need to take days to get a "perfect" cup...the first 2 cups of cappuccino I made were GREAT. Easy to use and frothing is waste and no mess. LOVE IT and the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Manual Machine I wanted the Breville Oracle Touch Espresso Machine, but the 18 inches was too high for my kitchen cabinets. So I bought this one even though it is manual. It fits nicely under my kitchen cabinets. It has been working good, I need some practice on warming the milk. It does take time to clean after each use, so I only use it in the evenings when I have more time. As far as manual espresso machines this is the best one I could find. I love the bean hopper that grounds my beans for each use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Espresso Machine I have purchased 4 of these, never had any trouble with any of them. I just bought one for the office. One is for our home in Hawaii, and one for our home in San Diego. The first one we bought we left as a gift when we sold a house. I have tried several manual and semi-automatic.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Last one 6 years this one 4 months This was our second one of this model. Really liked the first machine it lasted 6 years with every day use. It was showing the wear and finally the pump gave out. So we purchased a new one from Williams Sonoma at the local store. 4 months later it appears that the same pump has failed. W-S says after 30 days must be handled through Breville (they have them in stock, btw). Called Breville their customer service is only M-F?! Expect they’ll say send machine to them, not a good solution for a daily use product. Williams-Sonoma should stand by and support the products they carry in their stores.

    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.

  • Does this machine simultaneously froth milk and brew the espresso?

    Asked by: maya0917
    Hi maya0917, With the Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine, you cannot froth the milk and brew your espresso at the same time. If you'd like a machine to do both simlutaneously, the Breville Oracle Touch Espresso Machine will do just that. Here is the product page for that machine:
