the Barista Express™

With Conical burr grinder and dose control

"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."

"Drinking a cup of superb coffee - love the machine, it's easy to use and clean - having tried many coffee machines this is the best! "

"Had this for less than a day. Sorry wouldn't sell it for twice the price. Read the instructions and learn how to make great coffee the wife says its the best she has had ( and have paid for more than a few coffees from the high street) . Yes it more faff than a true bean to cup machine but you soon get the hang of it and its worth doing."

We don't buy coffee out anymore!

"We have been really delighted with this machine. It's simple to use and much easier to clean than expected. Most importantly, it makes superb coffee, better than any of the leading chains. Previous machines have never quite produced really hot milk. This one does. We've only had it for a couple of months but, so far, so brilliant. And I don't drink coffee out anymore! "

A ture barista experiance

"This machine is much better then any glorified vending machine (automatic coffee machine)!!!!!!!!!!!!

This machine is great for anyone who has a passion for coffee. You can truly make the perfect coffee with all the setting you can change;
Bean grind size
Bean grind amount

The lights that circle the buttons make it fell like a luxury machine which you need to show everyone. The machine has some neat features like a hidden storage basket for the cleaning products and ground coffee baskets, and a pop up empty me sign.
The machines build quality is excellent and seems strong and sturdy. It has a nice look to it like a small version of a machine you would get in Costa or Starbucks.

Its hard to get the machine set up and working at first but after a while it becomes as easy as tying your shoes.

It would have been nice to have a light under the bean dispenser which shines down on the ground beans. The reason for this is it can be tricky to see how full the basket is getting.

Overall this machine is very good and I would happily buy it again, Thank you Heston and the manufactures. "

Coffee as it should be

"A little practise and in no time you get great tasting, fresh coffee. The Barista Express is also very neat in size and is a great addition to the kitchen counter top. It is easy to operate and makes the first cup of the day taste all the better. Well done Sage! "

As easy as pie and great coffee too:-)

"Everything was well packaged. Instructions are so easy to follow. It will take a couple of experimental cups to get the coffee to grind to the right size to make the pressure reach where it needs to be but it is possible. My 14 year old is so loving making me a good cup of coffee, just like a pro:-). Worth the expense. The machine looks good and it sturdy. Easy to clean, that's always a plus in my book. Well done to the manufacturer."
