Perfection is possible… It takes a lot for an electrical appliance to stop us in our tracks, after all, hundreds have passed through our test kitchen over the years, but the entire Sage range did just that! We lost count of the ‘wows’ around the room as our Buyer, Carly, took each one through its paces and, as soon as we heard that the ultimate food thinker, Heston Blumenthal, was involved in the testing and production, we knew they would be something really special.
Heston wouldn’t put his name to anything less than perfection, and the combination of Sage’s design know-how and attention to detail means that with these innovative stainless steel appliances perfection is possible. Brand new to the UK, these high spec appliances are very simple to use with straight-forward controls and are incredibly impressive to see in action. The instructions and recipes come with hints and tips from Heston to help you make the most of your machine.
Heston says that almost every ingredient tastes better when fresh, and coffee is no exception. The natural oils that give espressos and cappuccinos their rich flavour quickly degrade once the coffee bean is ground, so the Barista Express grinds fresh coffee straight into the filter for you, in exactly the right amount, then extracts the full, fresh flavour. With an expert array of features, carefully engineered for the most aromatic coffee you can make at home, it’s no wonder Wendy said it was the best coffee she’d ever had! Fully automated with super easy controls, it’s nearly impossible to make a bad cup of coffee with this intelligent, 15 bar pressure machine.
