About Us

Feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of coffee and espresso machines on the market?

Worried about wasting your hard-earned money on a machine that's low quality or overpriced or simply too much trouble to use?

I don't blame you.

That's exactly what I went through when I bought an espresso machine.


The first machine I bought was the cheapest one I could find (Chinese made, of course). I don't think it ever made me a single cup of decent espresso. I used it a few times then tossed it in a box and forgot about it.

The next was better. Much better. I made sure I bought a high-quality machine this time and spent a lot more money.

But this one ended up unused in a box as well.

Why? Honestly, I just couldn't be bothered with it.

It made great espresso, but having to go through the process of cleaning it every time to keep it from getting moldy and every thing else that was required to keep it running just became a chore.

All I wanted was machine that could brew a great espresso, was easy to use and take care of and didn't cost more than my car.

Was that too much to ask?

It turns out it wasn't.

Once I really dove in and researched what was available on the market, I managed to get just the machine I needed.

But it took a lot of time and effort to do that research. Not to mention the money and time wasted on the worthless, "made in China" machine and the high-maintenance one that wasn't really right for me either.

It was this experience that led to

Taking the Risk out of Online Shopping

During my research I learned that whatever your specific needs, there's a machine on the market that meets them. I also learned that there are a ton of cheap brands that flood the market from China.

The hard part is knowing which machines are crap and which are quality. And once you know which ones are good, you need to find the perfect one among them for your specific needs.

That's where I saw an opportunity.

An opportunity to ensure no one else would ever have to agonize over what should be a simple purchase.

I got together with my friend Angela, who has worked as a barista and has experience with the kind of espresso machines that remind me of the NASA control center.

We decided to combine her knowledge of coffee and my business knowledge and build a store for baristas and coffee lovers that does all the hard work for you.

We do the research beforehand and only carry models that are actually proven to be high-quality and high-performance.

And that are backed by rock-solid warranties.

And that's how we came to launch Barista Central.

An Online Coffee And Espresso Machine Store That Has Your Back

No more worrying about wasting your money on a machine that breaks within 3 months or that takes so much work to maintain, it takes all the joy out of making coffee.

Because we don't carry any of those machines.

We only carry quality brands whose machines are proven to work by thousands of satisfied coffee drinkers and professional baristas. And every machine we sell comes with a long warranty.

You still have to decide which of those machines is best for you, but you no longer have to figure out which one will last and which one will stop working a month later.

We've already taken care of the latter and we can help with the former. Together Angela and I have brewed and consumed thousands of cups of coffee and we learned something from every one of them.
