The Barista Express BES860XL is Breville’s flagship espresso machine. This product prominently features a built-in conical burr grinder, a magnetic tamper, a dry puck feature and pre-programmed espresso modes. These features, along with the integrated pressure gauge make this espresso machine superior to lower-end models.

The 15-bar BES860XL allows for programmed or manual operating modes. The programmable modes will automatically release the right amount of hot water into the ground espresso, while manual mode allows users complete control over the machine. Unlike most lower-end espresso machines, this model will grind beans right into the included filters for ready-made espresso in under a minute. The dry puck system will extract extra moisture after using the machine, allowing for quicker cleanup. A magnetic tamping tool, measuring spoon, steel filters, cleaning tool and frothing pitcher are included in the box.
