*NEW* Philips Barista Brew Espresso Machine Unboxing, Set-up and Honest Review

Today I am unboxing the brand new Philips BaristaBrew Espresso Machine. This was gifted by Philips Home Living, however, this video is not sponsored.

I currently own the Philips 5400 Fully Automatic Espresso Machine with LatteGo, so this was a bit more tricky for me, because it is only a semi-automatic machine. The Barista Brew has a built-in grinder and a handful of adjustability settings, all wrapped up in a compact and shiny metal box.

With a $649.99 price tag (it will be $549.99 on Amazon Prime Day), this is a mid-range semi automatic with a built-in conical grinder and some advanced features. Most importantly, the Barista Brew features a 58-millimeter stainless steel portafilter, automatic pre-infusion, volumetric control and an adjustable brew temperature with PID control. Plus, a simple user interface allows easy access to all of these features. What’s more, the Barista Brew has some beginner-friendly touches, like a temperature strip on the included milk pitcher, a calibrated tamper and a timer-based dosing mechanism for the grinder.

Consequently, this Philips semi automatic espresso machine is ideal for both beginner and intermediate home baristas alike. The Philips BaristaBrew Espresso Machine is relatively affordable for a semi automatic espresso machine with a built-in grinder. Plus, it has a good mix of beginner-friendly and adjustable features, which makes this machine a strong contender for most households.
