Breville Barista Express Review


Best Espresso Machine Overall

Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine

The Breville Barista Express is the espresso machine for you if you want something that can do it all. It features a built-in grinder, so you can go from bean to cup in less than 60 seconds. While touchscreens can be useful, I love the analogue buttons and dials on this machine.


  • Incredible quality – you’ll get a delicious and consistent shot of espresso every time
  • Versatile – this machine can be used to make cappuccinos, lattes, and macchiatos as well
  • Durable – the Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine is made of stainless steel and built to last


  • Complicated to clean – this machine is a little more complicated to clean than simpler models, so it may not be ideal for those who don’t want to spend a lot of time on maintenance
  • Size – this espresso machine is relatively large and may not be a good fit for smaller kitchens
