So beautiful, but...

I love this addition to my Sage machine! It is beautiful and really finishes off the machine instead of the plastic knob. Only thing I have is the loose fit, it seems a bit wobly, and this could easily be rectified by the manufacturer. This is the sole reason for only giving this 3 stars.

Amazing professional look!

This lever completed the professional look of my Breville Espresso Machine! Easy to install (with the help of YouTube video). I am impressed with the quality of products and wonderful customer service of Crema!

Great lever but needs an O-Ring (are you listening Crema?)

When installed as instructed, the lever feels loose and wobbles. Several months later I had to open it up to tighten the screws once and I think the wobble might have caused that. Then recently I read a review of the lever on Amazon and another purchaser figured out how to fix the wobble with an inexpensive O-ring. So I took his advice and installed it and it makes all the difference with perfect fit. 4 star rating as shipped, 5 star rating as installed with O-Ring. Crema should be including an O-ring with the the lever. Hats off to TheBigTime on Amazon for figuring this out! "This is an excellent upgrade to the Barista Pro (or Express) except the wobble needs to be corrected during install. Unfortunately, the mechanism in these machines have a bit too much of a tolerance that is accentuated with this oversized lever to a bad wobble. It’s annoying that Crema didn’t think of this, but I found a simple fix for it, an O-Ring. You can find an 1-1/2” x 1-3/4” O-Ring at your local hardware store that fits neatly in the opening groove. I recommend adding a bit of PTFE lube on it, then pushing the lever knob through it until it clicks in. Voila, no more annoying wobble." - Review by "TheBigTime" on

THE THING the Barista Express machine needs

Shortly after buying the Sage Barista Express, the pitiful little dial they fit for controlling hot water/steam gets very stiff. It's also on the right hand side, but being right handed (like the majority of people) it's very difficult to actuate whilst holding the steaming jug in my dominant hand. And to top it off, at this point in the coffee making process my hands are usually somewhat wet, all that combined means I often slip on the dial, injure my hand and mess up the milk. Well all of these issues disappear with this amazing little modification, it could not be easier to actuate the steam lever once you've fitted this item with Crema's fantastic instructions. Could not be happier, it's exactly what I've been looking for since I got this machine!

Don’t fight the knob, get the lever!

Is it lavish? Yes! But a must have. Makes the whole experience on the machine that much better. I’m right handed, so with the original knob I’d have to switch the craft of milk to my left hand to turn the steam off. Sometime the changing of hands can be a bit rough causing large bubbles in your milk messing up the nice texture. With the lever, no more! The steam or water function can easily be turned of with just a finger!

Love Every Shot.

To us, coffee is a ritual. And we want you to love every moment of it. To take joy in the process of measuring and grinding. To experience confidence while distributing and tamping. To rejoice in the sight of the perfect extraction. And of course, to love every drink you make, every time you make it.
