Brewing at Home: Espresso

Posted on

To get the best results out of your home brews, our professional training team have created a series of guides for our favourite methods, so you can achieve delicious balance in your cup, and continue enjoying great coffee at home.

Sage Barista Pro is a fantastic home espresso machine, which we're proud to champion at Origin. It offers barista-quality performance with a new intuitive interface that provides all the information you need to create café quality coffee at home. The built-in grinder delivers the right amount of ground coffee on demand, for full flavour. With a 3 second heat-up time and precise espresso extraction, you go from bean to cup, faster than ever before.


Grind size: fine
Water temperature: 92-96℃
Coffee to water ratio: 18:36g (1:2)


  1. Place group handle on scales and tare (zero)
  2. Dose 18g of freshly ground coffee into the handle and distribute the coffee evenly in the basket
  3. With the edge of the handle on the counter, firmly tamp straight down into the basket
  4. Clean the rim of the handle with your hand making sure there is no loose coffee outside of the basket
  5. Purge the group head and insert handle into the machine firmly
  6. Press the double shot button and start your timer
  7. Extract the espresso in 28-32 seconds
  8. If the espresso extracts shorter than 28 seconds, the coffee is too coarse. Adjust the grind size to make the coffee finer
  9. If the espresso extracts longer than 32 seconds, the coffee is too fine. Adjust the grind size to make the coffee coarser
  10. Between each grind adjustment, grind off some coffee to ensure all the coffee is the new desired size
  11. Repeat steps 1-10 until you achieve a 28-32 second extraction time.

To keep your machine in really good condition and your coffee tasting at its best, it is essential that you fully clean your machine daily. A well-kept machine will reduce servicing costs and ensure your machine will give you years of loyal service.
