The Sage Barista Touch gives barista quality performance with a new intuitive touch screen display, pre-programmed café drinks menu and automatic milk texturing. All within a compact footprint. A built in grinder delivers the right amount of ground coffee on demand and with a 3 second heat up time you can get your coffee made quickly and efficiently.
Why we love it: Sage coffee machines are some of the best home machines in the business and will help you serve great coffee every time.
Sage is one of the most reputable coffee brands in the industry and have positioned themselves in the market between a fully automated machine and commercial machine that you would see in your local coffee shop.
We think the most apt description is an “Automated/Manual” Espresso machine – meaning, that they are a leap above an automated press button machines which struggle to replicate a café quality cup of coffee but you don’t need Barista training to operate them.
Sage’s 4 keys formula for third wave specialty coffee at home
Rich, full flavour
Perfectly balanced taste
4. Milk Foam
Silky, velvety mouthfeel
Full-bodied coffee with rich and complex flavours is created using the right dose of 19-22g of freshly ground beans. This dose allows the coffee to fully express the incredible aroma, intense flavours and distinctive character of the coffee, for a true cafe quality result. Anything less than the optimal dose results in a weak and watery taste experience.
Sweet, delicious and nuanced flavour notes begin with precise control over water temperature. Digital temperature control (PID) technology precisely controls water temperature for a perfectly balanced coffee extraction, giving you the control and consistency for delicious tasting coffee every time.
An opulent, creamy and caramel-colored espresso starts with low pressure pre-infusion that soaks the grinds, allowing water to pass evenly through the coffee during the high pressure (9 bar) extraction process, delivered via our 15 bar Italian pump. This results in a rich, sweet and viscous espresso.
4. Milk Foam
Savour the silky taste and velvety mouthfeel of true microfoam milk. The milk is steamed with pressure that creates thousands of tiny bubbles, enhancing flavour and mouthfeel, while the temperature brings out the milk’s sweetness, exciting your taste buds, for a harmonious blend of rich, sweet milk and syrupy, golden espresso.
