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.
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!

We offer custom laser engraving on all 9Barista machines. The engraving is available on the side of the group head. Engraved machines incur a 48 hour lead time versus non-engraved machines.
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.
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.
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.
This plate has been specifically designed to work on induction cookers, and won't work on gas cookers. Please see the Heat transfer plate for use on most gas stoves.
Composition: Diffusion bonded aluminium and stainless steel
9B Espresso Cup
3oz/90ml 9Barista branded espresso cup
A naked portafilter for the 9Barista espresso machine.
The naked portafilter has a larger aperture than the standard portafilter, giving a full view of the extraction. The benefits are partly aesthetic, but the full view of the basket can also help identify channelling, which is helpful when identifying how to improve shots.
It's worth noting that using a naked portafilter does require some careful puck preparation. Without this you may experience 'spritzing', which is where very fine jets of coffee spit from the portafilter as a result of channelling. Careful distribution and tamping of the coffee prior to brewing resolve this.
Includes the wooden handle, bush and basket clip.
