"Excellent so far"
26 January 2018
After a couple of months I have found the Barista Express easy to use. To avoid grinds spillage I always use the single setting, tamping the first dose lightly. The controls need adjustment for different beans. The settings seem consistent between uses. I re-set the extraction volume to increase it, this has remained consistent. The machine seems very solidly built. Minor problem is, some beans escape into the channel around the top burr holder. I have been very happy with the coffees produced. The steam-wand is much easier to use and more effective than my previous machine's.
