Far Better Than Expected

"My love affair with coffee has progressed from pre-ground drip machines to the Barista Express.

The drip coffee was okay, good for a quick fix, but left a lot to be desired! I upgraded eventually to a fully automatic machine that ground the beans, extracted the espresso, and "frothed" its own milk. While this was indeed a big improvement allowing me to use higher quality fresh beans and thus a better flavour, it too left a lot to be desired. I thoroughly enjoyed the resulting coffee however, but knew there had to be something better.

As my passion continued to grow, I finally decided to move on to a more professional type machine, allowing me finer control. After a bit of research I finally decided on the Barista Express (BES870).

Today my machine finally arrived in the post. Everything was so well packaged, and the accessories a huge step forward. After carefully following the setup instructions and dialling in my preferred dose and grind, I was all set to extract my first espresso.

My first six attempts resulted in subpar coffee, but I was fully expecting those results. But, after finally having tuned my grind, my tamping, and my dose I extracted my first good espresso.

To my amazement and joy, my cappuccino turned out fantastic! It was strong but smooth, sweet and an absolute joy to experience! Never before have I had such a good cup of coffee in my life, and this was just with store bought espresso beans! Absolute heaven compared to what I was drinking before.

A great espresso machine

"We bought our Barista Express two weeks ago and it has been a joy to use!
After using a very basic espresso machine for over 10 years, we took the plunge and bought a more expensive machine. The delight of grinding fresh coffee for each cup is well worth the extra expense. We followed the advice regarding settings and have set the grinder to 7, which seems to produce the perfect grind for us. We buy excellent coffee beans and find that the coffee is consistently good. Although one has to wait a few seconds between the coffee extraction and the milk heating and frothing, we do not find that a problem.
The milk heating is not automated, so one needs to be aware of the temperature. However, this process is easy and fairly intuitive.
An added bonus is the beautiful retro look of the machine.
For those who have not ground coffee before - this machine is a great introduction to Barista style coffee.

BES870 Barista Express

"Brilliant coffee machine, simple to use, easy to clean & makes perfect brew every time. If the Oracle was cheaper we most definitely would have bought it!"

My favorite appliance

"This beautiful machine has delivered the best tasting coffee consistently since I purchased it about 1month ago. What delighted me was how sensitive the machine was when a new blend was introduced requiring some fine tuning to dose amount and tamp pressure to achieve perfect extraction. The design of this product is very clever and stylish. Everything is well positioned, robust and easy to operate. I am working on my 'latte art' and this is much harder to master. Considering the features, build quality, good looks and the consistently magnificent espresso it delivers, there is no better product on the market at this price point.
