The Barista Express in black is a fully automated coffee machine from Sage that is designed to produce the perfect cup of coffee every time.
The fresher the ingredients, the better the end result and coffee is no exception. The natural oils found in coffee beans that give the rich, intense flavour degrade quickly after the bean has been ground. Not a problem with The Barista Express. A 250gr bean hopper with its integrated stainless steel conical burr grinder allows you to grind your own beans for optimum freshness. There are 18 grind settings available - from fine to coarse and you can adjust the dose to your individual taste (pre-ground coffee is also fine to use).
A Thermacoil heating system quickly heats the water which is stored in the removable 2L water tank and an even extraction is achieved thanks to a low pressure pre-infusion from the 15 bar pump. The Razor dosing tool and on-board tamper help you achieve the correct dosing for your shot (there's also a double filter basket if you need that extra hit of caffeine!
Instant hot water is at hand for long black coffees, but if a cappuccino or latte is more your thing there's also a powerful milk frothing arm to texture and heat your milk in the stainless steel frothing jug that comes with the machine.
Other features include a 6 cup warming plate, dry puck feature (water is removed from the coffee grounds in the filter basket for easy disposal), drip-tray full indicator, cleaning-cycle indicator, water filter located in water tank and cleaning kit which is located in the integral storage tray.
All of these features are integrated into an extremely elegant design. The black stainless steel construction is both stylish and practical and will look good in a traditional or contemporary kitchen.
