Breville - The Barista Express (BES870-XL):
One of the most important factors in pulling a truly amazing shot of espresso is minimizing the time between grinding fresh, high-quality beans and extraction - something that is now easier and more convenient than ever with Breville's new Barista Express! The Barista Express' built in conical burr grinder makes it possible to grind exactly the amount needed directly into the portafilter moments before extraction - a key feature, allowing for the time between grinding and brewing to be reduced to mere seconds.
|In addition to the built in grinder feature, Breville's Barista Express offers an integrated stainless steel thermacoil heating system and electronic PID temperature control, allowing for precise and accurate temperature control, consistency and stability throughout the extraction process.
The Barista Express was the proud winner of the SCAA (Specialty Coffee Association of America) 2013 Best New Product - Coffee or Tea Preparation and Serving Equipment (Consumer)
