Sage by Heston Blumenthal Barista Express Bean-to-Cup Coffee Machine, Silver

Product information

Developed by Sage by Heston Blumenthal, the Barista Express is here to give you the ultimate cup of coffee. Designed on the principle that ingredients taste better when fresh, the Barista Express prevents degradation of the quality of beans by grinding them directly into the filter for you, to extract their full flavour. The whole process, from bean to coffee, takes less than a minute.

Use either beans or pre-ground beans, with the conical burr grinder allowing for efficient grinding at high speeds. 15 grind settings mean you can have your beans as coarse or fine as you want them.

The bean hopper will hold 250 grams, enough for 25 shots of espresso, while the water tank can carry 2 litres, with integrated water filtration.

The Thermacoil heating system includes an adjustable temperature control, so you can keep the temperature in line with the coffee you want and prevent loss of flavour from overheating.

The powerful 15 bar pressure system builds gradually to provide even extraction of coffee, giving you a rich, flavoursome drink.

A 480ml stainless steel frothing jug and high power milk frothing arm will help provide you with enhanced taste for your coffee.

The hot water dispenser will provide you with instantly hot water, great for black coffees, while the 6 cup warming tray will make sure a cold cup doesn’t detract from your enjoyment.

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by best espresso machine ever Received as a birthday gift. amazing espresso machine. once grind setting is right it makes the best espresso, providing you buy fresh roasted beans. And the frother is great for micro foam, ive used machines that cost twice or 3 times as much and this is not far behind. Amazing machine for the money it costs 28 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by sage barista coffee machine Decided a new coffee machine was needed and was overwhelmed by the choice available since buying my last bean to cup machine 6 years ago, which is now beyond repair. Decided that I would give this one a go. I was a little hesitant as my previous machine was fully automated but after doing a bit of research I came to the conclusion that you pay extra money for the convenience of the machine being fully automatic. with the sage machine you get a versatile grinder the one side and the coffee extraction system the other. Also less moving parts and electronics therefore less to go wrong was my thinking. Not to mention the machine looks stunning and build quality is top notch. The machine was unpacked and ready to go in less than 20 minutes after careful consideration was given to placement in our kitchen. Extracted our first single shot following the initial settings recommended in the instruction and hey presto a perfect shot first time!! The double shot takes a little more time to achieve and I am not quite there yet. After my wife and I had a shot each I thought I would try to produce a latte. A minute or thereabouts later after texturing the milk which is so simple to do with the sage I had a beautiful creamy latte!! Very impressive. If you are considering a new machine I would recommend this one without hesitation. It may be a little pricey but it's worth it!! By one now and see for yourself!! 27 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic This machine performs fantastically and it delivers the most perfect cup of coffee, it only took us two coffee cups to get the grind correct. Then it was a breeze to use. We did try several other machines on the market and returned them before purchasing this one. This is the best product we have bought for a while its very good quality and looks fab on the kitchen worktop. We as a family would recommend this product to anyone wishing to have the perfect coffee experience in the home. 18 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Really happy with this purchase ....solid well made bit of it 03 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fastastic machine The Barista is everything you would expect in a professional business with a taste to match. Easily assembled with straight forward instructions, was being used within 10 minutes of opening the box. Looks goods, works well and performs fantastically well, worth every penny but pity about the in-shop personal experience. My only criticism about the machine is that the distance between the tray and the discharge spouts is not long enough to take the larger mug but can be easily decanted using a smaller cup. 20 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Coffee Machine Yes, it is as good as it looks - if I had to be picky, it is a little messy but the end result is worth it. Cup perfect each time 16 December 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good Machine shame about the after service really happy with the machine but i have been really unlucky and have a few things go wrong with it - I have only had this machine for less than a year. Sage have been unhelpful and a nightmare to deal with - they really do not want to take the machine away to be repaired. More needs to be done to look after customers after they have bought an expensive piece of equipment. 27 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent machine It is really easy to use easy to clean produce the perfect coffee each time. 15 July 2014
