Bean Counter - how we compare on price

Our mission is to make great tasting barista quality coffee at home possible for everyone. 

We've done this by removing the hefty upfront cost of buying a Barista machine by enabling you to spread the cost over 12 interest free monthly payments with DivideBuy or Klarna.

For just £49 per month inc vat you can have a Sage Barista Express, or £58 for a Sage Barista Pro, yours to own and keep with 12 monthly payments on 0% interest.

Add 1kg of coffee beans per month for just £15 and you’ve got the best tasting coffee at home for less than the cost of Nespresso.

We selected the Sage Barista Express and Pro machines due to their fantastic coffee making capabilities in the home environment. Perfect for the home Barista. They’re manufactured by Sage Appliances to a very high standard, are durable and reliable and built to provide many thousands of great cups of coffee.

What's included in a Barista Club plan

1.Choose your Sage Barista machine in silver or black on a monthly payment plan with 0% interest.

2. Then add a monthly subscription of a 1kg bag of the very best quality barista beans delivered to your home or office.

All for less than the cost of Nespresso.

Our Barista Club machine and bean plans cost less than capsule or pod coffee subscriptions and just 10% of the cost of the coffee shop (which may charge £2.50 for a latte when you can make it at home with The Barista Club for just 23p).

For a fair comparison between the machine & bean subscriptions available on the market we are comparing subscription plans that include a milk frother as part of the subscription.
