the Barista Express™

With an integrated grinder.

"Almost every ingredient tastes better when it's fresh and coffee is no exception."

The natural oils that give espresso and a cappuccino their rich, creamy flavours start to quickly degrade as soon as the beans are ground.  This product not only grinds it fresh straight into the filter for you, it delivers the right amount of coffee too.

There are 18 grind settings from course to fine for optimal espresso extraction as well as instant hot water for making long blacks and pre-heating cups. 

Heston's Tip:  "Check the ‘roasted on’ date on the bag and if it doesn’t have one don’t buy it as it’s almost certainly not fresh (your best chance is at your local café – the one with the queue out the door!).

Try to buy one small bag at a time so that you can use it all within a few weeks. You won’t believe how much difference freshly roasted beans make."

Loving my Barista Express

"Bought the Sage Barista Express a couple of weeks ago. Love it so much. Managed to sort out the grind amount, tamper etc relatively quickly. Takes a bit of time to workout what is best for you, but I really enjoyed getting better at it. Working on my coffee art now. Fab product, great quality and haven't been to Costa Coffee since!! Only advice is to buy good coffee. I bought mine from Italy directly. Jolly cafe creme from Florence. Very happy Sage customer. So impressed in saving up for the food mixer now"

Love it

"It is a treat.

I've had it for a few weeks now and it's all nice and easy, not really any messier than a cafetiere and definitely nicer aand more fun!

Great coffee - who needs Costa!?"

"We've moved to the coast miles away from any decent coffee shop. To compensate we bought this machine and haven't looked back since."

"Did a lot of research on various coffee machines. Brought a Berg but had to send it back. Paid a bit extra for the Barista Express and are glad we did. Looks great, a solid machine, the milk steamer is amazing, simple to clean. Could go on but suffice to say we would recommend this machine whole heartedly. Thought it might be a bit of a faf but it's so simple and quick.Well worth the money. Got ours from Amazon which was a little cheaper than the RRP. "

Excellent Coffe Machine

"I bought this machine after researching ost others in this price range and above and I have not been disappointed. I worked out the best grind and other settings after watching thr very useful video and speaking to a helpful advisor at Sage. Now we enjoy superb coffee from this very handsome looking machine.
I would advise new users to watch the video and other information texts and videos from Sage as the information provided on how to use the machine and get the best from it are very wothwhile and informative.

Extremely pleased with my purchase and glad I own it."

Barista Express

"I purchased this machine a week ago. It had a lot to live up to as I replaced it for my La Pavoni machine and grinder which had a faulty steam valve and had for 14 years without any other faults. I had to get used to the machine and once you get the right amount of coffee ground and correct ground with the right amount of compression you do get a lovely cup of espresso . The machine is very well built and beautifully designed. The only quarm I would say is that the height is quite large between the portafilter and an espresso cup ,which when coffee is extracted it splashes the coffee over the cup. Apart from that it also makes a great creamy cappuccino with a lovely texture to the milk when frothing.
Overall I am very pleased and I hope it gives me many years without any problems!!!"

"When I purchased this machine I could not buy coffee beans in any shop in our area that had a date on when they were roasted. I bought some in Cafe Nero, but no different to any other store. With these I found it extremely difficult to set the machine up. The only place I could buy beans was online which I did. Ordered 3 different types from Arrived the next day. With freshly roasted beans and following machine instructions and videos everything worked brilliantly. Everything is exactly as stated on the Sage website as long as you use freshly roasted beans. Works a treat. Now trying different beans to find which best suit my taste. I deferred buying a coffee machine for years because I doubted how good they were. This is brilliant."

Express barista

"Decided a new coffee machine was needed and was overwhelmed by the choice available since buying my last bean to cup machine 6 years ago, which is now beyond repair. Decided that I would give this one a go. I was a little hesitant as my previous machine was fully automated but after doing a bit of research I came to the conclusion that you pay extra money for the convenience of the machine being fully automatic. with the sage machine you get a versatile grinder the one side and the coffee extraction system the other. Also less moving parts and electronics therefore less to go wrong was my thinking. Not to mention the machine looks stunning and build quality is top notch. The machine was unpacked and ready to go in less than 20 minutes after careful consideration was given to placement in our kitchen. Extracted our first single shot following the initial settings recommended in the instruction and hey presto a perfect shot first time!! The double shot takes a little more time to achieve and I am not quite there yet. After my wife and I had a shot each I thought I would try to produce a latte. A minute or thereabouts later after texturing the milk which is so simple to do with the sage I had a beautiful creamy latte!! Very impressive. If you are considering a new machine I would recommend this one without hesitation. It may be a little pricey but it's worth it!! Buy one now and see for yourself!!"
