What fancy, semi-automatic Italian espresso machines go for.
The first thing you'll notice about this machine is it's stainless steel construction that's both sturdy and attractive.
What I like most about this machine is it's built in.
After you've adjusted your grind size, grounds are dropped directly into the filter.
You can have this done automatically or manually.
This makes dosing your shots with the right amount of coffee Very easy.
It also has a pressure gage so you can tell if your shot will be extracted properly.
It has a ball mounted steam wand and steel frothing pitcher, all these things make the Breville Barista Express our editors choice for home espresso machine and it should definitely be on top of your short list if you're in the market.
