The Barista Express allows you to grind the beans right before extraction for full flavour and precise temperature control (PID) ensures optimal espresso extraction. Be hands on like a barista with manual microfoam milk texturing to deliver authentic café style results in no time at all.

  • Dedicated Hot Water Outlet
  • 2L Water Tank Capacity
  • Thermocoil Heating System

Precise Espresso Extraction

Digital temperature control ( PID ) delivers water at precisely the right temperature, ensuring optimal espresso extraction. The Breville Razor™ dosing tool trims the puck for a consistent dose and extraction.

Micro Foam Milk

The steam wand performs at the level that allows you to hand texture the micro foam necessary to enhance the flavour of the coffee and create latte art.

Dose Control Grinding

The 250g Integrated conical burr grinder with dose control delivers the right amount on demand, ensuring maximum flavour. Its fully adjustable grind size and dose, let you customise to suit your taste.

Grind Size Dial

Simple and intuitive, giving you control over the grind size no matter what type of bean you're grinding.

Easy Operation

The Breville Barista Express Coffee Machine has an innovative grinding cradle which allows you to grind easily into the espresso portafilter, thanks to its convenient, hands-free operation and user-friendly design.

Pre Infusion Function

Gradually increases water pressure to gently expand grinds for an even coffee extraction. Pre-infusion refers to the process of gently soaking the puck of ground coffee in your portafilter before applying the full brewing pressure. The goals to ensure that water evenly penetrates the coffee grounds to ensure that the entire bed has the same amount of water flowing through it once extraction begins.

Purge Function

Automatically adjusts water temperatures after steam for optimal espresso temperature.

Long Black & Tea

Long black coffee and Tea drinkers can still enjoy the Barista Express with the dedicated hot water function, you can brew almost anything.

Breville "the Barista Express" Espresso Machine is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 421.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from best coffee I bought this machine from Harvey Norman Warrawong only 2 days ago upgraded from a pod machine. Spent the first day reading the instruction manual and following all the instructions to a tee and testing out different grind settings. My first batch of coffee beans were not fresh so no crema. They had been sitting in our pantry opened for over 12 months. Went out to buy fresh beans and what a difference!! Hopefully this machine will continue to give our family the coffee that we love. It will pay for its self in only a few months. Also some great training videos on youtube for this machine that are worth watching if your a bit nervous like I was about using an expresso machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coffee once you have the settings dialed in I've had this for just over a month and have been loving the coffee it has been producing lately. The most important thing with this machine is you need fresh beans! I've tried extracting from a few different types of beans and the difference between freshly roasted and old beans is unbelievable. The settings on this machine are easy to tweak but you can expect to go through quite a bit of beans when first setting it up. I've noticed the settings also need tweaking when changing bean types to get the pressure gauge in the right zone. Now I've had it for a while and dialed in the settings perfectly, I get a great extraction every single time and coffee that easily rivals a cafe's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my coffee machine I have had this machine for 6 years - we make 2-4 coffees daily - every day - without fail. My son is 10 and he can make perfect coffee for us so its easy to use. We have taken it on holidays with us - packing it up and putting it in the boot while we drive for days so I can vouch for its durability! Alas it is now starting to wear out - the wand has had all the first few layers of whatever it is coated with worn off thru use and the seal in the water tank is starting to go - but I'm so pleased with it I'm here shopping for an exact replacement! I know $700 seems expensive - but our home made coffee costs us about $1 to make , saving $2.50 per cup. So the two of us save $5 a day - which means in a year its paid for itself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coffee machine I’ve had this for 2 months. I love making my morning coffee as much as I love drinking it now. I never realised how much science goes into making a coffee. I’ve used different beans and I’ve had to adjust the grind size and quantity every time but I write the settings down to remember for a particular bean and it’s spot on every time. I love making coffee for guests too. Love this machine. It’s tricky but enjoyable at the same time. It’s satisfying when you see the dial land in the perfect spot and the coffee comes out like honey with a beautiful crema on top.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great at first but..... I'm 2.5 years into my Breville Barista Express experience & I must say the first 2.5 years have been pretty spectacular coffee quality wise. However, should a machine of this pedigree last longer than 2.5 years & the answer has to be yes. Fastidiously maintained but now showing apparent signs of a loss of pump power. In spite of the pressure gauge indicating ideal pressure levels, the flow of coffee from the group head is muted ie. it drips rather than trickles or flows. This is nothing to do with grind size , because the first 2.5 blissful years never indicated the problem I'm now experiencing. Perhaps the machine needs a proper Breville servicing? Is there such a service? I can't recommend the product if it deteriorates to this extent after 2.5 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use... This is my first home machine after using a pod machine I had given to me which served a very presentable espresso. But I wanted to add milk and love silky froth so I looked around for ages and eventually went to try one at a friend's place who had same model. Thought I would be a bit annoyed at extra labour involved. But this machine is super easy to use and very satisfying getting the grind/pressure/milk etc right. Love it. And fresh grind to coffee is just great,the smell is divine and it is like being in a good cafe every morning in my house now.Bought the black which looks sleek and is easy to clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little machine For the price this machine is great, if you know what you are doing can make a killer brew, only issue I have found is as it is a single boiler you can't extract the shot and texturise milk at the same time (I understood this when purchasing but as I drink black coffee its only an issue when my friends want one), for that tech you are looking at spending a touch more $$ but if you're wicked quick it wont affect the quality at all. Overall extremely happy with the product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase in a long time! Bought this coffee machine a few weeks back and it has been the best purchase I have made in a long time! I had been looking for a coffee machine at home and after trying a few different types of pod machines, I couldn't get a coffee that tasted like proper barista coffee. I had become a bit of a coffee snob in recent years and didn't want to settle for an average coffee everyday (and the cost of buying coffees was starting to add up). Paired with fresh beans from Dimmatina, this machine makes coffees just as good as the coffees I was buying everyday. I will never go back to buying coffees again! Make sure to take care of this machine and clean after each use, it may take more time to make your coffee and clean the machine, but it is definitely worth it!
