Sage SES880BSS the Barista Touch Semi Automatic Espresso Machine : Impressive machine, great milk frother.

Auto milk function was incredible. Really quick to heat up and looks amazing in my kitchen.

Once again sage appliances has produced a commercial quality appliance for home use. Several years ago i purchased a sage grinder pro and haven’t looked back. The barista touch combines the easy of a bean to cup machine with the quality of your local barista. It allows you to set specific milk temperatures and textures and even name drinks after yourself.It’s compact design works well for smaller kitchens. The best element is that it allows you to try your hand at being a barista. This is an all round quality machine it’s so good we use one in our coffee roastery.

This is what i was looking for.

After many months of research, endless questions to coffee connoisseurs and chats on baristsa forums we made a big decision to buy this coffee machine. We had some delonghi capsules operated appliances before and looking from todays perspective those machines were money thrown into the mud. Sage barista touch is a pearl among the geese. It does not only make coffee way better than sturbucks but it actually turns you into a barista by teaching you every step of making your perfect cup. It is intuitive, quick, high quality machine. The best £800 we ever spent.

I love the quality of this machine. It is well built and makes outstanding coffee. It definately puts alot of coffee shops to shame if you use decent quality beans with it. A bit fiddly to use at first but its worth getting the hang of it.

Great coffee and great milk.

I’ve had a de’longhi magnifica esam 4200 for seven years which has served me well, but wanted a machine that would give me more control over the grinding and brewing process. After reading reviews on the internet and wanting a more barista experience i bit the bullet and went for the sage batista touch. Once you get used to setting the grind right, as this can vary depending on the type of coffee, it is a superb machine. The automatic milk heater/frother works a dream.

Café quality coffee at your fingertips.

Barista-quality performance with new intuitive touch screen display with pre-programmed café drinks menu and automatic milk texturing, all within a compact footprint. A built-in grinder delivers the right amount of ground coffee on demand and with a 3 second heat up time, you go from bean to cup, faster than ever before.

The 4 key elements of café quality coffee:

  • Dose Amount
  • Precise Water Temperature
  • Optimal Water Pressure
  • Sufficient Steam Pressure

The 4 Key Elements of True Café Quality Coffee

1. Dose - 19-22g dose for full flavour.

2. Temperature - Precise PID temperature control.

3. Pressure - Low pressure pre-infusion & 9 bar extraction pressure.

4. Steam - Automatically steaming milk to a silky micro-foam texture.

1. Dose – 19-22 g dose for full flavour.

Have you ever wondered why your home-made coffee never seems to taste as great as a café bought one? That’s because most other automatic machines only dose 11-13 g of ground coffee, below what’s needed to create that rich, full-bodied taste you get out of bed for.

2. Temperature – Precise PID temperature control.

The difference between an ashy or balanced tasting espresso can be as little as 1°C. The Barista Touch uses digital temperature control (PID) technology which detects and minimises any fluctuation during extraction, ensuring the temperature is kept at its optimum range, every time.

3. Pressure – Low pressure pre-infusion and 9 bar extraction pressure.

Creating a golden honey crema in your coffee relies on the right pressure at the right time. The Barista Touch uses low pressure, pre-infusion to evenly soak and expand the ground coffee, delivering a sweet and creamy extraction.

4. Steam – Automatically steaming milk to a silky micro-foam texture.

To get that velvety texture in your milk you need the right steam pressure to draw in the air and create thousands of tiny bubbles. That’s why we created the automatic steam wand for the Barista Touch, that turns your milk into a silky smooth micro-foam, essential for latte art.
