  1. Not my cup of tea , sceptical about potential thermocoil reliability, but there are many happy users http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sage-by-Heston-Blumenthal-The-Barista-Express-Coffee-Machine-BES870UK-RRP-550-/331727291492 [ I am curious about the origin of large quantity of so called refurbs has anyone dealt with xsitems_ltd ? ]
  2. I have a Sage Barista Express, (Iv'e had multiple,) and after approx 6 months the Brew/Steam/Water selector stops working / jams , and Steam / water will exit the brewed regardless of position. Iv'e had multiple Sage Engineers (Coffee classic ) out, and luckilly lakeland have also been good in exchanging the faulty machines. I clean the machine weekly with cleaning tablets / descaler. Is this an issue that anyone else has experienced ? is it a problem with the design of the valve / switch. ? This is the 5th time now, and I've confidence in the machine. I'm guessing the Du
  3. Hello everyone :-) New to this forum and I just got my Barista Express 870, this forum has been great to look through for tips and tricks - so thanks to all that are taking the time to add their input! I am hoping you can post your settings when using an espresso bean (I do understand that different beans require different grinds). Feel free to add the bean type you are using and how fresh it usually is. edit: This is meant as a info thread on what setting the different forum members have. I have upper burr set on 5 and side on 9, two weeks old local espresso beans (20 gr double sho
  4. So, looking at either the Express machine or the DTP with the Sage Grinder. What are the benefits of one over the other please? Any advice would be more than welcome. I only really drink Latte's.
  5. Hello everyone, I recently bought a Sage Barista Express and the gauge goes a bit crazy when I do single shots, I'd like to understand if this is an issue on my end or if I should send it in service. I will attach a video. I understand that the gauge can go too low or too high due to various factors, but here the gauge goes very low then suddenly very high and stays there, or see when I try again, the gauge is even "funnier". I've tried multiple times with different types of coffee, different amounts or tamping This is very noticeable for the single shot, less for the double shot fil
  6. Hello, I am a coffee lover, but a complete newbie on making coffee. I am getting a Sage Barista Express for my 40th this Sunday from my lovely wife, so thought I had better get some reading in before I unpacked it. In doing so I came across this forum and am very glad I did. I use an Aero Press both at home and at work at present, but really looking forward to upping my coffee game with the barista express. I'm fully aware that I am getting a machine that is going to take a lot of getting used to and practice. I like the idea of that, and hoping to get a good sense of achievement
  7. Hi Everyone I have had my Sage Barista express for just over 2 years and it has had very light service, 2 or 3 cups a week. All parts, accessories included in the sale. Fully descaled and cleaned. Boxed. Full normal working order, sharp burrs! Very minor marks on drip tray surface due to bottom of cups, but nothing significant at all. Will include a spare water filter and cleaning tablets and happy to demo to anyone as required. £300, collected from near Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire. Only selling due to moving to a plumbed in HX machine.
  8. Hi guys, I'm looking for a budget coffee machine setup for espresso and milk drinks, with somewhere around £250 - £350 to spend. I was thinking of a used Sage Barista Express, but I've heard the grinder can be affected by the heat of the cup warmer, which isn't great. I also like to experiment with lots of different settings, rather than just making a standard espresso shot but it seems the Barista Express only doses a set 60ml amount. Would I be better off getting a used Sage Duo Temp Pro with a Sage Smart Grinder Pro combo instead? I haven't used the machines so I'm not entire
  9. Mine just arrived today, when assembling the water filter doesn’t seem to fit properly in the tank. When you push it down onto the connection, it seems to come into contact with the side of the tank before it’s all the way down. It then isn’t able to sit upright in the tank. Is that expected and just a poor design? It’s just the filter that came provided in the box.
  10. Hi, My trusted Sage Barista Express (circa 6 yrs old) has developed a fault, where both the 1 and 2 cup options do not cut off the water after the normal amount is released. When trying to make an espresso, the pressure starts to increase, then the water cuts off. I have run a clean cycle and reset any programmes that could have been configured. Also tried creating a programme but problem still exists. Any help/advice on how to repair would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
