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.
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.
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!
