Sage is obsessed with designing espresso machines that make third wave specialty coffee possible at home.
Our research and development team set out to understand what makes a truly great coffee. By exploring the thinking, design and engineering behind high-end commercial machines, and how it could be translated into machines that fit and work at home, without compromise. Optimising everything aspect from grind to extraction and microfoam milk texture, we replicate the performance of the machines found in the world’s best cafes across our entire espresso range.
The most important ingredient is freshly ground coffee. Ground coffee should be brewed within a minute of grinding to ensure you capture all the delicate aromatics in the espresso extraction.
Every high-end commercial espresso machine uses a portafilter, without it, it's hard to get a great tasting coffee. Staying true to tradition, all our espresso machines use a portafilter to create that third wave specialty coffee taste.
Third wave specialty coffee at home
From hands-on manual machines giving you the control of a barista, to our next generation automatic machines which allow you to simply swipe and select from all your cafe favourites, Sage’s espresso machines are designed with the commercial features and performance to help you create third wave specialty coffee at home.
Grinders offer adjustable, accurate grind size and dose. Full-flavoured, superior tasting espresso starts with a 19-22g dose of fresh coffee, the same as high-end commercial machines. Sage’s espresso machines also use the portafilter found in these machines, allowing you to create that perfect third wave specialty coffee taste.
The precise PID temperature control heating system allows for stable water temperature throughout the extraction process, while low pressure pre-infusion and 9 bar extraction pressure deliver the perfect flavour balance.
The steam wand design, right down to the tip’s configuration, creates the right steam pressure to produce silky microfoam milk for that sweet, balanced flavour, and allows you to create latte art.
