For coffee enthusiasts a traditional coffee machine just won’t do and for many even the popular Keurig machine doesn’t cut it. For those who love cafe-style beverages comes the ultimate coffee machine: Breville’s Barista Express Coffee Machine. Like all finer things in life, this machine goes above and beyond to create the perfect cup of Joe and its $599.94 price reflects this. The machine delivers fresh, quality espresso at remarkable speeds thanks to its integrated bean grinder so you can go from beans to espresso in practically under a minutes! Although the machine might look daunting to beginners, it’s super easy to use. Beginners will be whipping up delicious cups of espresso thanks to its two two dual-wall, pressurized filters that regulate pressure and help optimize the extraction. For more experienced baristas, it comes with two single-wall, non-pressurized filters that give you more room to experiment with different grind sizes, grind amounts, and tamping pressure.
The Barista Express also features an Italian-manufactured 15 bar pump and thermocoil heating system that makes for accurate regulation of water temperature for a full-flavored espresso drink, while a pre-brew function and flat shower head make sure that the water is optimally distributed through the coffee puck. Other great features include a cup warmer on top of the machine and the ability to remove extra water from the filter basket after coffee extraction so the used grounds form a dry puck allowing for a much easier and quicker clean up. And for those who like more than just espresso, there’s also a stainless steel 360 degree swivel-action steam wand for lattes and cappuccinos. If you didn’t get exactly what you wanted for Christmas, gift yourself the ultimate present with the Barista Express Coffee Machine!
