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.

Excellent machine It is really easy to use easy to clean produce the perfect coffee each time. 15 July 2014
Great coffee at home By far the best coffee i have tasted made from a home machine. I sue Monmouth coffee in this machine and the results are superb. Not as instant as some machines but the quality of the coffee is worth the extra effort. 23 June 2014
Poor customer service from sage I noticed a potential flaw with my machine. The steam/standby switch only takes at tweak to switch between the two modes, sometimes switching by itself so I contacted sage support. He asked me to send a video of the problem and he got back to me saying he consulted with colleagues and it's normal. I wondered how much effort had gone into my query so I pushed him again. This time he said he would consult with colleagues in Australia? 8 days later I had heard nothing so I chased him and he said he would chase them up. Nearly a week later I had heard nothing again so I took the machine back to John Lewis for a replacement. I e mailed sage customer service to ask if someone call me regarding the service and issue but I got the same person again. For me Sage failed on several levels. 1. Don't give the customer any idea of when they will respond. 2. Don't bother coming back to customer until they chase them. 3. Don't give a descript/professional solution to an enquiry. Very unsatisfactory company from what I have experienced. Also check your switches. 28 May 2014
Looks good! I bought this as a present and it now sits proudly on our kitchen worktop! it has all the extras to make a fantastic range of coffees, following some adjustments and a few trial runs, my boyfriend now uses it everyday for his prework espresso and its great for lattes at the weekend too, very versatile, definitely worth the effort of the few trial runs. 21 May 2014
Love coffee? love this! WOW! What a machine, this coffee machine makes coffee as well if not better than all the high street vendors. Yes, there is a bit of setting up to do, but follow the instructions and you're away. We have managed to get our coffee just how we like it and with the built in bean grinder, you are always getting the freshest possible coffee. This machine has a fabulous amount of power for steaming the milk as well, so great latte and cappuccino. 06 May 2014
Good but sensitive machine I bought the machine after reading the reviews on this site and Which? I had problems at first. JL were helpful and offered to take it back but I contacted the manufacturer who was very helpful. I can now produce excellent coffee but the machine is very sensitive. It is crucial that the right coffee, freshly and correctly roasted is used. I also found that my tamping action was too heavy. However, it is worth persevering as when you get it 'right' it produces an excellent coffee. 18 April 2014
sage blumenthal barista express - not worth the money This is an expensive domestic coffee machine yet it fails to perform the very basic functions on a regular basis. The settings grind, quantity, took me 11 tries to get to a cup of coffee that worked in the expresso pressure range. Once I had this calibrated it often failed to deliver a cup of coffee - despite no change in settings and required a number of additional attempts and wasted lots of expensive coffee beans. It can produce a good cup of coffee but it is fiddly, temperamental and annoying (not the thing that is wanted first thing in the morning!). I am considering returning the item, it is certainly not worth the money. 09 April 2014
Sage Barista coffee machine Wonderful can't believe what we have been missing. Also managed to find fresh roasted coffee beans from Winchester Coffee Beans, freshly roasted on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Such a difference we have been using a Jura machine for a few years this machine is 100 percent better unbelievers able difference. 25 March 2014
