Owner Reviews
Our Rating: 4 Stars

The BAR32 includes a 35 ounce removable water tank and detachable drip tray to facilitate clean-up and allowing enough space to use a traditional coffee mug. Perhaps the most striking feature of the BAR32 is its patented dual-function filter holder system which enables the unit to accommodate two completely separate filter attachments, making it possible to brew traditional ground coffee or to use the increasingly popular ESE espresso pods.

Quality espresso and crema
Versatile: Accepts both ground coffee & pods
Competitively priced


The unit’s patented Sempre Crema Filter produces a rich, creamy froth for use with ground coffee, and its Swivel Jet Frother makes frothy milk for cappuccino, latte and other beverages.

The unit includes a stainless steel boiler, two separate thermostats, a coffee tamper, self-priming operation, and a timer for one-hour auto-shut off  and automatic brewing.

Owner reviews are strongly positive, many of which are from those who have upgraded from steam espresso makers. Reviewers frequently cite consistent quality of the espresso, ease of use, durability and the sub-$100 price tag as its key positive attributes, and the unit gained favorable reviews both among pod users and those brewing traditional ground coffee.
