How do I use my Sage Barista coffee machine?

Using a Sage coffee machine is a remarkably intuitive and satisfying process, even for a novice. When you buy a machine from Iron & Fire, we’ll help and guide you through the set-up process to make sure that your coffee is extracting perfectly. Check out our help articles below for plenty of tips and advice.

  1. Begin by filling the water tank to the desired level and ensuring the portafilter is clean and dry.
  2. Add freshly ground coffee to the portafilter and use the tamper to press it down, creating a smooth surface.
  3. Attach the portafilter to the group head, ensuring it’s secured firmly.
  4. Choose your preferred coffee strength and size on the machine, then press the brew button.
  5. As the machine brews, it will extract a rich, aromatic espresso shot, the base for any coffee drinks.

For milk-based beverages, fill the frothing jug with cold milk, and use the steam wand to create silky, textured foam. The machine’s temperature control ensures the optimal extraction conditions, and the micro-foam milk texturing allows for latte art creation. With the Sage Barista, you can enjoy barista-quality coffee at home, every day.

How do I dial in my Sage Barista Express?

Dialling in your Sage machine involves fine-tuning various elements such as the grind size, dose, and extraction time to achieve the ideal balance of flavours in your espresso.

Start with a medium grind size and adjust accordingly based on the taste of your espresso. If it’s too bitter, the grind may be too fine; if it’s too sour, it may be too coarse. Similarly, experiment with the amount of coffee: typically, we use around 19 grams of coffee. It may take a few tries to find your perfect settings, but the key is to be patient and make small adjustments each time.

Which is the best sage coffee machine for me?

There are a few things to consider when purchasing a Sage machine. The first is what type of machine you want. There are three main types of machines: drip, pod, and espresso. Drip coffee machines make regular brewed coffee, while pod and espresso machines make speciality coffees like cappuccinos and lattes.

The second thing to consider is the size of the machine. These come in different sizes, so it’s important to choose one that will fit your needs. If you’re only making coffee for yourself, a small machine will suffice. But if you’re making coffee for a large group of people, you’ll need a larger machine.

The third thing to consider is the features. Some Sage machines come with built-in grinders, while others have frothing wands for making lattes and cappuccinos. Choose a machine with the features you want. Once you’ve considered these factors, it’ll be easier to choose the best Sage coffee machine for your needs.


Is the Sage Barista Pro™ The Best Coffee Machine?

The Sage Baristo Pro is a Bean-to-Cup coffee machine that contains a brand-new intuitive interface that provides all the information you need to see what your coffee is doing. This Sage Espresso Machine has a quality grinder on top that grinds directly into the basket. It’s accepted that coffee ground just before extraction gives a better taste profile. That is why you’ll see many cafés use a grinder rather than using pre-ground coffee.

Just insert the portafilter basket into the well-designed holder and the machine will grind a precise dose of coffee directly into the basket for you. Next, use the purpose-made tamper to tamp down the ground coffee – make sure the tamp is level and even to get the best extraction. Then place the basket into the Brew head and press the selected single or double shot button for a beautifully extracted coffee shot. This is all done in under a minute, only limited by how fast you can move. With little training, you will be making a coffee house quality flat white in no time.

With its LCD interface, this barista coffee machine gives a gentle guiding hand to help you make a professional cup of coffee. You buy your fresh roasted beans and pour them into your hopper and with the help of this barista coffee machine, you are involved in every step of the process from the grind to being able to foam and texture your own milk.

When you’re trying to achieve professional café-quality coffee, it doesn’t matter how great your coffee beans are, it needs to be brewed properly to bring out the flavours. There are many different brewing methods to choose from, ranging from the relatively straightforward to the truly scientific. This method – and the machine – you choose will make all the difference.

At Iron & Fire, we have a great range of Bean-to-Cup and filter coffee machines for brewing at home.
