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.

Questions & Answers
You can remove the hopper with MOST of the beans and easily deposit the beans from the hopper into a bag or canister. Some of the beans will remain in the grinder mechanism. I pick the whole beans out with my fingers and grind through any remaining caffeinated beans - truly only a few beans.
The transition is probably good enough for most people since even decaf beans have some caffeine. Personally, I have sleep issues, so I am very careful. I LOVE this machine. The moderate effort is worth it because the espresso quality exceeds coffee shop coffee drinks.
