Breville’s Die-Cast Espresso Machine offers professional grade functionality. Functions like the 15 bar pump that extracts a cafe quality crema from either ground espresso or pods, the triple prime feature that delivers three succinct bursts of water onto the ground coffee causing it to moisten and swell to prevent burning, and the 4.5 inch clearance from the drip tray to filter that allows a shot directly into your favorite mug ensures a perfect cup each time! Buy it here for $399.99.
