Features & Functionality of the Breville Barista Express BES860XL - Refurbished
- It's A Beauty: The Barista Express body, controls and tamping head are formed using the highest-grade aluminum and zinc. Unlike thinner pressed metals, die-cast construction molds molten metals at intense temperatures. The result is the ultimate in durability and performance, and a more refined finish.
- Grind, Baby, Grind: The Conical Burr Grinder has a grind size dial that accurately adjusts fineness of the grind for correct water dispersion. Activated simply by one-touch grinding cradle with auto-stop.
- Attached Tamper: The integrated tamper with magnetized lock in storage allows you to tamp to your preference while attached to the machine or on the counter.
- Make it a Venti: With a full 4.5 inch clearance, this machine is designed to accommodate larger cups and travel mugs, making it ideal not just for espresso, but for variations like Americano, cappuccino and latte.
- Set It and Go: Two programmable buttons allow for automatic dispensing for the same amount of espresso or coffee each time.
- Make It Smooth, Make it Silky: The 15 bar Triple-Prime pump automatically releases three bursts of hot water into the filter head, causing the ground coffee or espresso pod to expand. This increases pressure, allowing the machine to extract more crema, giving the coffee a rich, smooth texture and taste.
- Stainless Steel Steam Wand: The swivel ball-mounted steam wand allows you to position your cup as you need to to achieve the maximum froth.
- Thermoblock Boiler: This system maintains the water at an ideal 204°F; during extraction. While steaming, it reaches temperatures of over 250°F;. The unique auto-purge function releases a measured amount of steam to return the temperature to the optimal level.

The baskets fit snuggly so I don't often switch them out. After about an hour of practice I switched to the non pressurized double shot basket and basically never take it out. It works wonderfully and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Being new to this machine I spent plenty of time online doing research on how to pull the best shot and within a couple of tries I was making some fantastic latte's.
The 860 has a great feel of quality with very little plastic and mostly stainless steel. I have only had it a few weeks but its very consistent and solid. (Posted on 8/19/2013)
