Breville Barista Express is a great choice if you’re a newbie. If you want simple controls and espresso machine that makes great shots, this model is perfect. It has a significant number of features: stainless steel boiler, 15 bar pump pressure, built-in burr grinder, 67-ounce water tank, built-in PID, single and double shots and programmable shot volumes. It has a water temperature control (4 degrees up or down from the factory settings) and auto-purge function which returns the machine to an optimal temperature after steam. It’s beautifully built, and the price point at which these features are offered is really good.
Breville BES870XL Black Friday 2019 ads: I didn’t find any good deals on Breville in this year’s Black Friday ads so I’m sure that Amazon will offer the best price on this model just like last year.
One quick note: Deals often sell out or expire without notice. Some of them may return as Black Friday gets closer, so check back often, I’ll keep this page up to date with new prices.
