9Barista is beautifully simple. It has no electronics and only one moving part. The machine produces professional quality espresso by using a new, patented technology that sets it apart from all other espresso machines.

Professional espresso

9Barista consistently produces perfect brewing conditions just like the large machines at your local café. The result? Exquisite espresso with a perfect crema. Just be sure you have a good quality grinder designed for espresso and a set of scales with 0.1g resolution.

Inherent reliability

Constructed from solid brass, and with no electronics or moving parts (apart from a spring) 9Barista is engineered to last a lifetime.

Cost & speed

9Barista uses fresh ground coffee, not pods. If you add up the cost, 9Barista will pay for itself within about a year.
9Barista is fast – only 3-6 minutes to make an espresso from cold.

Small & versatile

Small, compact and perfectly formed, 9Barista works on any cooker, from electric hobs including induction (additional induction plate required), to gas or Aga and even on a camping stove!

Custom Engraving

We offer custom laser engraving on all 9Barista machines. The engraving is available on the side of the group head.

Text engraving

Three lines of centre aligned text engraved on the side of the 9Barista, just below the fins on the group head.

Each line can be up to 30 characters in length and we use the Helvetica font with an individual line height of approximately 3mm. Unfortunately we’re not able to engrave emojis.

Line 1 up to 30 characters
Line 2 up to 30 characters
Line 3 up to 30 characters

Custom graphic or logo

A black on sliver graphic engraved on the side of your 9Barista, just below the fins on the group head. We are able to engrave simple custom images or logos, please contact us if you would like to know more.

9Barista custom engraving

If you choose an engraving option, we will ask for your engraving details nearer to the time that your machine is ready to ship, so you don’t need to provide that information when placing your order. Please note that we aim to ship all machines ordered with custom engraving within one week, rather than on the next working day.

Optional Extras

Precision Engineered Basket

A 53mm IMS precision engineered competition grade basket to fit the 9Barista espresso machine.

These baskets are precision engineered to ensure the holes are cone-shaped and polished, with no sharp edges. This reduces the chance of any of the holes becoming blocked during extraction, which increases the chance of producing a more consistent, delicious shot of espresso.

Each 9Barista comes with a conventional 53mm basket as standard and we find these baskets produce excellent espresso. Some customers do report an improvement with these precision ones, and we have noticed a difference as well. So we thought we would make them available for those who wanted to try them out.

If you select this option, you’ll receive both the standard basket and the IMS precision one.
