The Breville Barista Signature Espresso Maker delivers better taste by design, with a large 58mm group head inspired by commercial coffee machines to give better extraction for maximum espresso flavour, and a Dual Thermoblock heating system that brews and steams simultaneously so you can savour your coffee sooner. The intelligent integrated bean grinder provides feedback on the correct amount of coffee grounds for 1 or 2 shot dosage, with 30 grind settings for a totally customisable flavour profile depending on your coffee preferences. Less Mess Grind* anti-static technology also ensures that grounds stay where they belong (and not on your counter). Want to time your optimal extraction? The precision extraction timer displays real-time results clearly on the easy-to-read LED screen, so you can enjoy the most flavourful espresso every time you make it. For expertly-made lattes, flat whites and cappuccinos, the full-size cool touch steam wand produces a dry steam that creates velvety microfoam milk, or use the hot water dispenser to create a classic Americano.

Breville Barista Signature Espresso Machine is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A product that I really like I will start by saying that I am a coffee lover, so having a coffee machine that has the bean to cup option has always been my greatest desire. I love the smell of freshly ground coffee, so this is a thing I love to experience in the morning. I have found the Breville Barista Signature coffee machine to be so easy and instinctively to use. The design is very nice, and I really like the stainless steel design. The fact that I can prepare two coffees at the same time and also prepare the milk for my morning coffee is definitely a plus. I absolutely love it, and I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow So many thoughtful touches! So many thoughtful design features on this machine. You can tell they've taken feedback onboard and espresso drinkers have designed this machine, from the excess coffee grind disposal bin to the magnet in the tamp holder. It's genius. I could never quite master latte art with my delonghi and I think it was the steam wand.. I get it basically every time now with this machine I'm so happy. The dual boiler is a game changer, not waiting round watching coffee go cold. The reservoir is huge so I'm not constantly topping up. The filter is small and simple to change, even has clever built in month reminder. The built in grind setting in the bean hopper is so intelligent and saves having more buttons on the fascia. I know some machines have so many buttons it ruins the aesthetic and scares off customers. This is simple to use, but also you're able to customise settings and programmes making it your own if default isn't for you. Honestly I have had delonghi and Sage machines but this blew me away with how well it has been designed. If you love espresso and you're unsure just go ahead and buy this machine you won't regret it. For a fully fledged espresso bean to cup machine, with dual boiler and huge water reservoir it's actually quite compact compared to rival machines with the same capability. It's quality materials, reassuringly metal, no fake chrome and plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Amazing The Barista Signature is the best coffee machine I’ve ever used, it comes with really clear instructions with useful hints and tips. I love how you can steam the milk simultaneously with the coffee extraction. It has a very large water reservoir meaning less top ups and is so aesthetically pleasing. A stunning addition to any kitchen enabling a professional barista coffee in the comfort of your own home. Can’t wait to practice latte art but for now it makes a beautifully tasting coffee from a novice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing freshly brewed coffee and aroma Looks great! Very professional looking, the instructions are a little daunting initially especially as a coffee novice, however after a quick google , I found it extremely easy too use. As a family we have all tried different coffees and have found they taste exactly like any specialty coffee shop! We are loving trying different coffees and this will save us so much rather than buying coffees from shops, A real centre piece to any kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be your own barista! I have used many coffee makers but this was my first try with an espresso machine like this. First opinion: the machine is sleek, compact and comes with the parts you need (though might I suggest including a little glass/cup for shots because it is quite a compact set up, people may struggle depending on cup size, plus it would make crafting espresso based drinks easier. Use: I made a couple of errors in starting it up, and there are quite a lot of small parts. In addition, I was worried about forcing some of the pieces because they are plastic- the bean hopper did not seem to want to fit. But once I had it all in order, I had a drink with frothed milk in about a minute and a half. I think there will be some finessing and practice needed, but once you know how it works, it is easy! The instructions are helpful and include some useful info about how to perfect things. I am really impressed by how digital this is. Everything is preset, so it takes a lot of thinking out of it and makes the process quick and easy to do daily. Note: I was given the opportunity to try this in exchange for my honest opinion.
