A slight step up from a steam pressure design but not great by any means


First things first, the Bosch Barino is priced at quite a bit more than a steam pressure machine but is at the at the lower end of pump models. Steam machines have the inherent flaw of not making real espresso but rather just dark strong ...

Sleek design, simple operation, makes hot water fast

Slow and due to it shots not very hot, little crema

Consumer review (



I totally agree that buying this machine is a waste of money. The coffee it makes, can not be called espresso, as it is so mild and added to this it is cold as well.

looks nice, small - can fit in little place

makes mild and cold coffee, not espresso

Don't waste your money!!!


This machine is made in China. Pump is not powerful enough to push through fine grind illy espresso, vibration is high, and coffee is not hot, just warm. I sent it back to Bosch, they refused to refund me saying that machine is working as it suppose...

Nice design

Noisy, not powerful enough, poorly build. Customer service is nightmare
