Breville "the Barista Pro" Espresso Machine - Black Stainless is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 145.
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 True Barista Pro experience Fabulous machine. It gives you plenty of control without making it a tiring process, perfect balance for user experience. All parts are made of quality material, the feeling, weight, detail, everything gives you confidence that it will last and not turn into obsolete stuff after a year or so - plus all parts can be replaced as they are easily obtainable from Sage's website - I love the milk frother, jar, portafilter, grinder and everything, you notice the attention it was put to each part - no lose ends. For a newbie with good espresso machines, it takes almost a month to master it, but once you do, you consistently get amazing shots. Every morning I look forward to jumping at it and start making coffee - my friends have benefited from it immensely! The only downside is that it will be hard to pay for espresso on the streets because their quality will hardly beat the one you can get at home - but that's another win to investing on a Sage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine Great machine which pulls an incredible espresso once you have found the correct grind setting for your fresh beans. Very quick heat up time and not particularly loud in use. Didn't take up as much countertop space than I originally thought it would have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Breville Barista Pro is a great investment, and looks amazing, adding class to the kitchen! The purchase of the Breville Barista Pro was a great investment. Myself and my family were spending a lot of money buying coffees every day. Not only is the Barista Pro an amazing appliance, it's already saving us money after a couple of weeks of ownership. The Barista Pro works well, is easy to use, and looks amazing in our kitchen! I recommend looking for some online demonstrations to see how to use it . It also came with a coffee pack via redemption and a free online masterclass, which was very useful. I recommend the Breville Barista Pro 100%!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic machine Very simple to use if you've already started your home barista journey with an entry level machine. Once you get the settings to where you like it the coffee comes out exactly the same every single time, no variations! The coffee is absolutely delicious (but we do buy "pro" coffee from a specialised shop, I'm sure that helps). The steamer is really good and once you get the hang of it your milk will be just right every time. The fact that it comes with a water filter is a great bonus for us as we live in a very hard water area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's worth it It takes a bit of time to figure out the correct grind setting but once this is done it produces delicious espresso. After watching a few videos you become master of frothing too, latte art will take a bit longer though. We're very happy with the machine, ultra fast warm up, beautiful design, well done breville!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the best home appliances The barista Pro is a great compact machine, it does it all. As I've worked in many cafe's and restaurants, I don't mind a coffee or 3. I love the fact it's basically ready to go within seconds of pressing a button. Love the smell of fresh beans being grinded and the simplicity of the no fuss design. I would have given it 5 stars if it had a double boiler so It could pour a shot at the same time as steaming milk, and haven't worked out the best combo of grind size and amount of grinds to achieve maximum Crema.. but it's not a 25k commercial machine that I'm use to. This machine is one of the best home applications I've personally used. And the beans I get from work does it justice. So I'd highly recommend putting this in your top 5 If you're anything like me and read reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have appliance! This machine is fantastic! I put off buying a Coffee machine for so long, but when I bought one for the office, I realised what I had been missing out on! I ended up buying a second Barista Pro for the home as well! I would absolutely recommend!

Questions & Answers

Can I steam milk at same time as coffee being made?

Asked by: River
Hi River. Thanks for your question. The particular model has one boiler, so can not make coffee and steam milk at the same time. There are other models within the Breville range that do have two boilers to allow for multi tasks to happen at the same time. You can view these on our website or in our stores. Hope this helps with your query
