We’re not going to tell you to kick your coffee shop latte-a-day habit. But if you want to feel like a real fancy-pants, a home espresso machine could be the appliance to get you there. It’s an investment, sure, but lucky for you, today is Way Day and Breville’s the Barista Express espresso machine is on major sale.
The all-in-one countertop espresso machine normally retails for $1,000, but is currently $600—40 percent off—as part of Wayfair’s sale event.
Consider the Barista Express like a luxury SUV to your single-cup coffee maker’s 1993 Toyota Camry. The latter will certainly get you from point A to point B (caffeine in your bloodstream), but the former offers alllll the perks. That includes a built-in burr grinder for the freshest cup, precision digital temperature control for pinpoint coffee extraction and a steam wand for silky microfoam. The machine also has a choice of automatic or manual operation for when you feel like putting on your barista apron…or you just woke up.
We think the cost is well worth it considering the Barista Express can make an espresso in less than a minute and you don’t have to change out of your PJs to get it. (No offense to your local coffee shop.) FYI, the sale lasts for just 48 hours, from now through Thursday, April 28, so get it while you can.
