How to adjust grind size
With Breville’s Barista Express®, you can turn your passion for coffee into an expert skill. As our most popular manual espresso machine, the Barista Express® lets you grind, dose, and extract your espresso in one go—and in under a minute! With the flick of a switch, you can create your own third wave specialty coffees at home. Our modern interface allows you to personalize every detail of your brew, from steam pressure to grind size. In this video, our host demonstrates how to adjust and set the grind amount and size with your Barista Express®. It’s key to remember that grind size makes a difference to extraction flow-rate. If you aren’t getting the results you desire, it will help to adjust your grind size. You can do this manually—simply turn the Grind Dial, found on the side of your machine. You have 16 settings to choose from—remember that the lower numbers produce a finer grind, and the higher numbers produce a course one. We recommend beginning in the middle as a starting point. You're now ready to control and adjust your coffee grind size.
