Who wouldn’t like an espresso that comes with a brewer, a steamer and a grinder all in one place. Well, the guys at Breville already figured out the answer to that question as they did make it happen with the Breville BES870XL. The in built conical burr grinder is one of the most outstanding features of the BES870XL.This feature is easily visible on the top of the machine. It will kindly allow you to grind your espresso beans before brewing them in the same machine. As some veterans may already know, espresso beans start to lose their flavor after 5 minutes of grinding, therefore you need to brew them ASAP. If you wondered why the guys at your local coffee shop grind coffee beans for every cup, then problem solved, they need to maintain the flavors! Of course, you should be more than happy knowing you will now be able to do it at home!
This appliance is easy to use. To start you off, you can choose how coarse or fine your beans ground should be on the left of the device. You can as well control the dose that gets to the port filter by adjusting its size knob located on the front of the appliance.
The Breville BES870XL boasts of a new feature known as PID temperature control. This is a feature that was lacking in the BES860XL. This technology allows consistency in the water temperature that goes into the grounded coffee to ensure you get out the maximum flavors. This is a new technology which came with this appliance. If you have come across the BES900XL, then you should realize that this upgrade comes with an in built double boiler. This feature ensures that work is done faster as it’s able to steam while brewing. In other appliances such as its predecessor, you will to wait for around 30 seconds to be able to switch from brewing to steaming.
This appliance comes with a 15 bar pump gauge, numerous brewing buttons, removable water tanks and a bean hopper as well as a thermo coil heating system. You can custom program the amount you want to brew, e.g one cup or two cups. These features are all wrapped under a decent stainless steel cover that improves its appearance. This is the best espresso maker so far even if it might seem a bit expensive. If you want to make consistent espresso quickly, then you should be ordering this device.
