Owning the Breville BES870XL Barista Express

The Breville Barista Express BES870XL has an integrated conical burr grinder with dosing controls so your coffee is ground fresh for every cup. You’ll be able to grind your beans and dose directly into the coffee filter in under 60 seconds! Created with convenience and flexibility in mind, the Barista Express comes with two double-wall filters (single and double shot) that take the guesswork out of tamping—ideal for beginners. But, if you enjoy the art of making espresso, the BES870XL also has a set of single-wall filters that allow you to apply your own tamp. This innovative Breville model has a special tamper with a magnetized lock that can be used attached to the machine, if you intend to work with a double-wall filter. You can also detach the tamper if you prefer a manual tamp or are using a single-wall filter. The Barista Express can be programmed to brew a single or double shot and the grinder settings can be adjusted to suit your needs. With a nice mix of semi-automatic and super-automatic features, the Breville BES870XL is a very well-rounded machine.

The Barista Express has a 15-bar pump and thermocoil heating system to make brewing and frothing simple. Pre-programmed espresso options allow you to make a single or double shot by simply pressing the corresponding button. You can also override the preset espresso options if you want to customize your drink volume. The BES870XL has a hands-free portafilter holder; select the filter size (single or double) and put the portafilter in place; the machine will automatically dose the proper amount of coffee. A button, located by the portafilter holder, allows you to push once for an auto dose or push and hold to manually determine the grind amount. The Barista Express sports an ample 67oz removable reservoir and comes with a carbon resin water filter for clean water and great tasting espresso. The BES870XL has a commercial-style 360 degree swivel steam wand that comes with a stainless steel frothing attachment. Use the attachment if you’re going to be frothing a large volume of milk, otherwise the steam wand should be sufficient for everyday use. New to this model, the BES870XL features a dedicated hot water spout, perfect for making tea, hot chocolate, or americanos.

The Breville Barista Express has a modern brushed stainless steel finish. Button and knob-based controls make this an exceedingly intuitive machine. The pressure gauge, mounted on the front panel, is large and simple to read. Overall the Breville BES870XL is built to be a durable, user-friendly machine. The BES870XL has a built-in, stainless steel, conical burr grinder with adjustable grind settings, for your convenience. Choose from a Dual Wall preset grind setting or 15 grind size options to achieve your desired results. Similarly, a knob located on the front panel lets you take advantage of the pre-programmed Dual Wall setting or manually select your grind volume. The removable see-through bean hopper holds 8oz of beans and the burrs are detachable for hassle-free maintenance. This Breville model comes with the following accessories included: Patented Razor™ dose trimming tool 54mm stainless steel portafilter Single wall filter baskets (1 & 2 cup) Dual wall filter baskets (1 & 2 cup) Coffee scoop Integrated tamper Stainless steel milk jug Cleaning disc and tablets Cleaning brush, tool and Allen key Water filter holder and a carbon resin water filter.
