With 8 different strength settings, a massive 5-60 oz brewing range, a high-quality stainless steel flat burr for superb grind size uniformity, and a well-insulated thermal carafe, the Breville Grind Control has it all.
A step down from the Barista Touch, the Barista Pro costs 20% less but still features Breville's ThermoJet heating element with an impossibly-quick 3-second start-up. The sacrifice? The touch display and programmed recipes.
Breville makes 3 mid-level models in their Barista series: Express, Pro, and Touch. The Touch is the best with a Thermocoil boiler and powerful 1680W heating element for 3-second startup, and a beautiful color touch display.
