The Breville brand offers the highest rated cappuccino machine, the Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine with Grinder. Features include a 15-bar Italian pump, stainless steel conical burr grinder with adjustable grind size and amount, 1450-watt thermocoil heating system, 54 millimeter tamper and flexible shot volumes.
This espresso machine can operate with either a manual or programmable shot volume, making it suitable for both novices and experts of espresso making. The powerful stainless steel steam wand, often a subpar feature on other espresso machines, swivels 360 degrees to easily accommodate frothing pitchers and latte mugs of many sizes. The conical burr grinder is superior to a blade grinder, as it has consistent results that do not powderize the coffee beans.
