Breville Barista Express BES870XL
The Breville Barista Express is the best semi automatic espresso machine to buy. The best thing about this espresso machine is that it comes at a very affordable price for a high quality machine with built in grinder. It’s a huge bargain! The conical burr grinder works efficiently to reduce the time between grind and extraction to turn out the most exquisite shot of espresso.
You are assured of durability since it is made of high grade zinc and aluminum alloy that is die-cast to make it stronger. This is carefully hidden within its elegant and sophisticated outer housing designed to give it that sleek and ultra-modern appearance.
You simply need to place the portafilter in, set the dial for the amount of coffee, and the machine does the rest! It goes into standby mode after 1 hour and switches off after 3 hours in case you forget to turn the machine off. It also has a dispenser for hot water, allowing you to experiment with more varieties of drinks like hot teas or americanos. It leaves a sludge of coffee in the tray though, and this has to be removed periodically to avoid the tray having a permanent stain. Other than this, this is a perfect espresso machine.
The Breville BES840XL is another great espresso machine that has infuser technology incorporated in it to give the perfect flavor to your espresso. This Breville espresso machine draws the coffee out slowly by expanding the grinds initially and then applying high pressure to extract the coffee evenly.
If you are looking for a small espresso machine then this is it. You are simply going to love its small size since it occupies only 10″ width of your kitchen countertop! It makes coffee that is hotter than from other machines, and works silently since the pump is super efficient and super quiet. You can also clean the espresso machine easily since it has been designed that way.
Its only drawback is that it doesn’t have an inbuilt grinder, so you need pre-ground beans to make espresso in this. It also tends to move around a bit on the countertop when the pump works, and sometimes needs to be held back to keep it in place. The water tank is also a bit small, but the instant water heating feature allows you to have more drink options other than standard espresso menu.
Choosing the right espresso machine from the vast litany of models available in the market might be a problem if you do not know what feature you are really looking for. But if flavor is your first and only choice, then you need not look any further than Breville espresso machines. These machines are going to unleash that latent barista in you and help you churn out the perfect cup of coffee, more like an artist where the easy-to-use controls let you decide what you want in your coffee.
