Features and Functionality
Integrated Grinder – Conical stainless steel burr grinder speeds things up. The new 8 oz hopper takes its design cues from Breville’s fetching Smart Grinder.
Programmable Volumetrics – Set water volume for single or double espressos for consistent water levels with each brew cycle.
Temperature Control – A built in PID maintains the water temperature at an ideal 200°F during extraction, but you can increase your brew temperature up or down 4°F in 2 degree increments to dial in the perfect shot. An auto-purge function returns the machine to an optimal espresso extracting temperature.
Razor Dosing Tool – Breville’s patented stainless steel dosing tool trims up your portafilter post-tamp for consistent shots every time.
Energy Efficient – Barista Express automatically enters standby mode after 1 hour and turns off after 3 hours.
Hot Water Dispenser – A dedicated hot water pipe makes crafting Americanos a piece of cake.
Basket Options – The machine ships with double and single pressurized and non-pressurized baskets (4 total)
Stainless Steel Steam Wand – The swivel ball-mounted steam wand allows you to position your pitcher as needed for maximum froth control.
Dedicated Hot Water Dispenser – This update makes americanos or hot tea a breeze.
Huge Capacity – 67oz side-access water tank with optional filter.
Tools Included – New machines come with a perfectly sized tamper, frothing pitcher, cleaning and dosing tools.
Adjustable Temperature – Adjusting the brew temperature up or down 4 degrees gives you some leeway to fine-tune your shot.
Coffee Sludge – Despite an upgraded drip tray design, an integrated grinder means superfluous espresso grounds will collect and mix in your drip tray.
How Does it Compare?
