Reviewed

The Sage BES870UK Barista Express coffee machine is a ground coffee machine that, unusually, has a built-in coffee grinder and automatic dispenser. It's pricy, but comes with a lot of additional extras, such as a milk jug, coffee razor and magnetic tamper holder. We discover if the espresso from this machine is worth the nearly £500 price tag.
