Intuitive Interface

Faster Heat Up Time

Innovative ThermoJet heating system achieves the optimum extraction temperature in 3 seconds with instantaneous transition from espresso to steam. Ready to make your best coffee without the wait.

Integrated Conical Burr Grinder

With a single touch, the integrated conical burr grinder with dose control delivers the right amount of coffee on demand, for maximum flavour. Adjustable grind size and dose.

19-22 Grams Dose For Full Flavour

Achieve a consistent and balanced espresso using the right amount of ground coffee. The 54mm porta-filter with 19-22 grams is the key for full flavour and café quality coffee.

Precise Espresso Extraction

Digital Temperature Control (PID) delivers water at the right temperature +/- 2°c, ensuring optimal espresso extraction. Low pressure pre-infusion gradually increases pressure at the start and helps ensure all the flavours are drawn out evenly during the extraction for a balanced tasting cup.

Microfoam Milk Texturing

The powerful steam wand performs at the level that allows you to hand texture micro-foam milk that enhances flavour and enables creation of latté art.

Breville "the Barista Pro" Espresso Machine - Stainless Steel is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 219.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed so far I was delighted with my purchase of the Barista Pro in April 2020. The look and the operation of the machine was good. However, within 6 weeks the grinder began to have little problems. I have managed to work around that, but now the steaming feature is inoperative. I have followed the manual's suggestions to no avail. I have had the machine for only five months. I so wanted this to be my last espresso machine, but I am discouraged with it. I have read other reviews concerning long hold times with Customer Service. On Monday I shall have to begin my attempts to contact them. I would recommend holding off purchasing Breville for some time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't be fooled by naysayers! We had the Infuser (which has the gauge) for almost 5 years, and were super happy with it, but our Breville grinder (separate unit) began acting up and we decided to go big and buy this new Barista Pro. I can't say enough about it. New heating technology so ours is ready as fast as you can press the button. The water reservoir is really big so you don't need to refill as often. The grinder amount can either be manual, or use it on automatic and it will stop by itself. It is very quiet and feels really well made. Why did I not give 5 stars? Because this one does not have the gauge. I am learning to use other methods which Breville explains in the owner's manual. This is a really great machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete Newbie reviews the PRO Im new to the espresso world. Had to google best machines and breville is in every list. I bought the PRO and I LOVE IT! I always assumed coffee was always bitter until I bought this machine. Not only was the shot not bitter, but after i poured in the steamed milk, i never had to use sugar. I love the creamy and foamy texture it produces. The only negative i have to say is that i wished it had the option or ability to produce a hotter pour. If not mistaken i believe the less expensive breville bambino plus had it. Other than that, i believe this is the go to machine. I would suggest this over the barista express bcuz the PRO can deliver a faster pour so the fresh shot of crema is in tact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was really happy to get this machine because I normally spend a lot of money at coffee shops. Set up of the machine was pretty easy but it did take a few days for me to get used to using it. It took me a few tried to adjust the grinder the way that I wanted it but once I got the hang of it, it was really easy. This is one really impressive machine. It makes a great expresso and I learned how to make a really delicious cappuccino with it as well. I really like the fact that it has a milk frother. The coffee that I have made with this machine tastes worlds better than a regular coffee maker. The water does not take long to heat up and the coffee is made in 2 minutes or less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Fast coffee every morning for my drive in! We purchased a couple months back, and this machine is awesome! We had a fully automatic which never really steamed the milk well. I also spent my time cleaning the inside, disassembly, etc. This machine at first we were concerned it would take too long , tamping the beans, foaming the milk...etc. Nope! It's just as fast, Milk foam like we want , Easy to switch Milk type, ( I use Skim, My wife likes Almond) And it's always clean. My sons has a pressure gage, I would like if they added a pressure gage to the digital so you know if you are grinding and pressing correctly. Should be easy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lets an amateur create coffee like a professional This is an excellent machine that provides fine grained control on grind size and brew times etc. I just started with the preset options and a good supermarket bean blend. The very first cup was perfect. I have owned several espresso machines in the past but this machine surpasses them all. From little details like the magnetic holder for the tamper to the conical burr grinder and low pressure pre-nifusion stage, a lot of thought has gone into designing this fine machine. My wife says "you have ruined going to the cafe for me. How am I going to find a coffee as good as this at any cafe?"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 year update! Wow, this coffee gets better and better! I usually just have an americano, lattes once a week. My daughter in law has model below this..she changed settings for latte, incredible. The default grind at 15 is a little weak, good for americanos. We changed grind to 4 to 6 time went up over 20 sec, awesome! Best ever! Getting to be a snob now! Packed it for our 2 week beach vacation! Big hit! One potential suggestion We only use rev osmosis water. Indiana has a ton of lime which will ruin heater quickly. Cleaning should extend time for ro. Dont use city tap water. You will need sevice in 3 yr. I serviced our old maker heplacing heating elements, solenoid valves, pumps, due to mineral deposits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coffee Shop at Home! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First, let me just say WOW! I am so impressed with the Barista Pro, I may never go to a coffee shop again. There's just no need to. I can make any coffee drink I want with the Barista Pro! So far I've made espresso, cappuccino, americano, latte and frappe. It's so easy to use, very intuitive and you can change your settings to suit your needs. There are automatic settings already set on the machine but you can easily change them. You can adjust the fineness of your grind, and how much it outputs by adusting the amount of time it grinds coffee into the portafilter. The grinder itself is a thing of beauty! A sturdy conical burr grinder that delivers a consistent and superior grind, every time! Very easy to remove for light cleaning. I love how sleek this looks and how well it performs. I have a few small problems with it, but not enough to take off a star from my review. First problem: The baskets that sit inside of the portafilter are very hard to get out. Any time I have to change one, I spend a good five minutes trying to remove the one currently occupying it. Second Problem: There is a storage tray that sits behind the drip tray. I thought it would be a great place to store the other filter baskets and cleaning supplies for the machine. After a few uses I realized that condensation was accumulating in the storage basket. I assume purging the steamer into the drip tray might be causing this. Third and final issue: The handle that flips up on the water reservoir is over engineered and seems flimsy. Other than that I have no issues with this fine machine. It is an amazing appliance that will save me thousands on to go coffee. It comes with a variety of cleaning accessories and everything you will need to maintain and get the most out of your Barista Pro.
