Sage Barista Express review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sage by Heston Blumenthal BES870UK Barista Express coffee machine is a ground coffee machine that, unusually, has a built-in coffee grinder and automatic dispenser. It's pricy, but comes with a lot of additional extras, such as a milk jug, coffee...

Great coffee machine

 

Bought this to replace a broken Lavazza machine and as a move up from coffee pods. It's a fantastic machine, a bit fiddly to get the grind right at first but once that's correct it's simple to use. Milk frothing used to be a bit hit and miss with my...

Wakes me up before I go go!

 

This product is easy to assemble and very easy to use. The instructions even go as far as recommending what beans to buy (in terms of when they were roasted) and to keep the milk jug in the fridge for optimum micro-foam. The only downside is you have...

Fun to use

 

We have had our Barista Express for about 2 weeks and are having great fun learning how to get the best out of the machine. We found the instructions to be good, and found videos on YouTube to be a great help. First we started by using the beans left...

Love - Love My Sage Barista!

 

I have always wanted a bean to cup coffee machine and so in purchasing the Sage, it was a considered purchase due to the price. However, I am very happy and can honestly say it is worth the money. Easy to use, very easy to keep clean and makes the most...
