Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Breville BES870BSXL the Barista Express, Espresso Machine. The BoolPool rating for this product is Excellent, with 4.70 stars, and the price range is $374 - $649.

The Breville BES870BSXL the Barista Express is a top of the line espresso maker that produces high quality coffee drinks in the comfort of your home. This machine will produce espresso-style drinks while saving you money instead of going to the coffee shop for your daily cup of joe. This black and stainless steel machine is quite the eye catcher in the kitchen. It creates a high quality coffee drink in minutes, going from grinding the beans to producing the coffee in just under 4 minutes. All parts necessary to make drinks, including a steamer, tamper, and more are included.

Customers say this coffee machine is top notch and is so high quality for coffee lovers. They say it is easy to learn how to make a good cup with this machine, and they say there are a number of tutorials online that also help. They say trial and error is the best way to learn, and after a while it saves the user money buying beans at home rather than buying coffee at restaurants and shops daily.

Some say it takes some time to learn how to use the machine, which is a learning curve.

The quality of the shots are amazing, and I love that you can program how much water pulls through for the single and double shots to make the perfect amount every time.

There are a number of excellent Youtube videos to help you become a Barista expert, teaching you how espresso bean age affects shot quality and how to use the grind adjust to pull consistent shots that yield 15-20 sec shots.
