Breville® Barista Express™
The Barista Express includes an over-pressure valve that limits the 15-bar Italian pump throughout the extraction for smooth, rich espresso without bitterness. It also offers true low-pressure pre-infusion, which gently expands the grounds for even extraction. Easy-to-use controls, in-built conical burr grinder, and a wide range of user-friendly features allow you to customize the Barista Express to your liking, while the included shot clock and pressure gauge help you improve your barista skills. Includes a high-capacity water tank that swivels for easy refilling and a six-cup warming tray.

John O’Brien (Bill’s son) quickly became passionate about the growing small-appliance business, founding the Breville Research and Development center in 1972. Two years later, the world’s first scissor-action sandwich maker was invented, selling 400,000 units in its first year—one of the most successful product launches in Australian history.
Today, from New Zealand to the UK, toasted sandwiches are still affectionately called ‘Brevilles,’ so much so that the term has been added to the Australian dictionary. The sandwich maker’s success was soon followed by the iconic ‘Kitchen Wizz’ food processor, together with a range of high-performance, time-saving appliances such as blenders, dairy bars, yogurt makers and waffle irons. By the early ‘80s, Breville had established an office in Hong Kong, and was exporting its innovations to 15 countries.
During the ‘90s, Breville’s hometown of Sydney became one of the world’s most multicultural cities, with a craving for fresh, healthy foods and a taste for Mediterranean and Asian cuisine. Breville’s revolutionary innovations, such as the high-wall heating electric wok, the health grill, panini press and award-winning Juice Fountain and espresso machines, brought Sydney’s café culture to millions of homes around the world. In 2001, Breville’s merger with Australian kitchenware company HWI helped support the expansion of Breville’s Centre of Design.
