The Breville Barista Express has everything you need to brew delicious espresso and milk beverages at home—even if you’re a beginner. With a built-in conical burr grinder, automatic pre-infusion, and programmable brew temperatures and extraction times, the Barista Express makes crafting cafe-quality espresso beverages easy.  

Features & Benefits

Wrapped entirely in stainless steel housing, the Barista Express has a built-in conical burr grinder with 16 stepped grind adjustments and an 8 oz bean hopper. Coupled with the PID-controlled brew water temperatures and automatic pre-infusion, this machine gives you the power to coax nuanced and complex flavors from specialty coffee beans. 

The machine is intuitive and easy to use thanks to the button and knob controls, and the pre-set grind and extraction times mean you can start brewing excellent espresso right out of the box. 

The ample 67 oz water reservoir comes with a filter to help prevent the need to descale the machine, though don’t worry—it’ll remind you when it’s time with automatic cleaning and maintenance alerts.

Why You Should Get It

If you want a simple, easy-to-use espresso maker and don’t want to do extra shopping for a grinder, you’ve come to the right place. The Barista Express from Breville has everything you need to brew cafe-quality espresso and milk beverages right out of the box—except for the coffee and milk, of course.

  • Programmable Extraction Times

    The Barista Express comes with pre-programmed extraction times for single and double shots. These can be easily re-programmed so you can get the perfect dose.

  • Low-Pressure Pre-Infusion

    Prior to brewing at full pressure, the Barista Express gently wets the coffee puck with low-pressure water for a fuller, more thorough extraction.

  • PID-Controlled Brew Temperatures

    Brew temperatures can be adjusted via the PID controller for the perfect extraction no matter what roast you’re working with.

  • Versatile Brewing

    The Barista Express comes stock with both commercial-style unpressurized filter baskets and dual wall filter baskets, which are much more forgiving when it comes to pulling quality shots—a great boon for beginners.
