The Breville Barista Express dispenses up to 22 grams of coffee, which is double the amount of many automatic machines on the market, delivering you with that full flavorous taste we all enjoy in a cup of coffee.
The 1300 watt Thermo coil heating system, consists of a cast aluminum block, around a stainless steel tube, and provides users with quick heat-up times and a smoother, cleaner taste. The drip tray and liquid float are improved, which allows for better design and accuracy. If you are not familiar, residual pressure/water and steam drain into the drip tray following every brew. Breville also provides you with a float mechanism that signals you when it needs to be emptied.
The Barista Express comes with digital temperature control (PID) advanced technology, which recognizes and minimizes any fluctuation during the bean extraction, ensuring that the temperature is held at its optimum range, every time. Pre-set to your liking, with either a single or double-shot setting. The uniquely designed low-pressure pre-infusion and 9 bar extraction process allow the beans to evenly soak and expand the ground coffee, delivering that sweet and creamy extraction.
