Gaggia espresso is true Italian espresso. Thick with crema, black as night, more flavor per ounce then any other home machine. All Gaggia brewing components are specifically manufactured to ensure top quality espresso. This includes the heavy duty portafilter handle that weighs in at one pound of chrome plated brass. It matches up to a true commercial brew group also forged of chrome plated brass. The benefit to using such heavy duty material is temperature stability and unmatched durability.
The Gaggia designed turbo frother is a perfect example of simplicity by design. With almost no skill a novice can create a creamy froth for the perfect cappuccino, or steam up enough milk for an American style latte. A 1,370 watt boiler system powers the Gaggia, reducing your preparation time. With locomotive power the Gaggia will steam up enough milk for 2 cappuccinos or even an American Style Latte in only a minute and a half. The turbo frother is easily removable for fast clean up.
Add hot water to your espresso and create an Americano as an alternative to drip coffee. The robust flavor of espresso is captured without the intensity, making a far more satisfying experience then you could ever hope to accomplish with a drip machine. You can extend the usefulness of your Gaggia by quickly preparing 8 oz of hot water in only 20 seconds for your favorite teas, hot chocolate, soups or whatever you can imagine. The boiler recovers for additional hot water in as little as 15 seconds.
Commercial Quality Components
The Gaggia Classic has the added feature of a 3-way solenoid valve. This fancy sounding component has the unique ability to relieve the pressure from the brewing process. It diverts the pressure and the excess water in the portafilter to the drip tray eliminating the soupy leftover coffee grounds and instead yielding a solid puck that can be removed with one knock.
Your own Espresso Bar
If your reading this then it's assumed you're a coffee enthusiast and that means you want to duplicate the delicious coffee drinks you experience at your local cafe.

If you enjoy just one drink a day the Gaggia espresso machine will have paid for itself in about 3 months! After that it is money in the bank. Just think of the time and gas money you'll save by having an espresso bar in your home. With a Gaggia you need not rationalize the investment, this high quality espresso machine will last for years of coffee pleasure.
