Combining advanced technology with ease of use, this fully automatic espresso machine grinds the right amount of coffee, doses, and brews, all at the simple push of a button. The unit's innovative Espresso Plus System allows for adjusting the strength of coffee, from mild to strong intensity, making an infinite variety of coffee drinks possible from just one machine. Whether an Italian "ristretto" or a long coffee, it maintains a truly unique creamy finish. Its drip tray can be raised or lowered electrically with a simple touch, allowing the use of different cup sizes. Even more, the unit's 15-bar pump provides plenty of water pressure for authentic espresso extraction, while its stainless-steel rapid-steam boiler system reduces the time between coffee and steam delivery to just a few seconds. Its exclusive steamer swivels 180 degrees and produces hot water for tea, coffee, or instant soup, plus makes quick work of frothing milk for hassle-free cappuccino and lattes even a novice barista could master.
In addition, the espresso machine features a touch-screen digital LCD control panel with programming information and alerts, an 8-4/5-ounce bean hopper with adjustable ground-coffee dosage from 7 to 10-1/2 grams, and a built-in ceramic burr grinder with adjustable grind settings. Other highlights include a 57-ounce removable water reservoir, a pre-infusion option, an Aqua Prima water filter, a stainless-steel actively heated cup warmer, the ability to make two cups of coffee at the same time, a Gaggia Milk Island accessory connection, and a removable brewing unit for easy maintenance. Housed in impact-resistant ABS plastic with a stainless-steel-finished front panel, the attractive appliance will look great on any kitchen counter. Designed in Italy by Gaggia, one of the most respected names in the industry, the 1500-watt espresso machine measures 14-3/5 by 12-3/5 by 16-2/5 inches.

I've had this machine for a few days now and I absolutely love it. It by far trumps the quality of local shops and Starbucks (not that they make quality). The options on the machine allow you to create your own drink in your own flavor. The worst thing about this machine is how easy it is and how much you'll end up drinking. It's just too easy to press a button and boom, delicious espresso.
From off to espresso in no time flat! If you want your drink fast, look no further than this machine. Going from completely off to drink ready takes about 1 minute. You can brew in no time so this machine was made for speed.
Touchscreen I can't say it's greatly responsive. Obviously it's expensive and new so you want to be nice with it but that screen takes some hard pressure. Maybe they built it tough to last but you can't just tap it. You have to jab it sometimes. Not a complaint really. It seems like a strong screen.
Drinks There are three drink options: espresso, coffee, and long coffee. You can control the amount of water, temperature, aroma, flavor, and strength. It's crazy. Once you get down you're favorite flavor though, it's just a simple button press. I like a caffe corretto once in a while so I like that you can throw in pre-ground decaf for a one time cup and then just go back to your regular settings.
Steaming The wand is very articulated and easy to clean. The steam comes quick and stays consistently hot. You can steam milk fast enough to make yourself a cappuccino in under 2 minutes. I haven't tried the hot water option but I'm sure that works fine.
Drip Tray It moves! The tray moves up and down via a touch sensitive button on the machine. It will move from the counter to nearly touching the spouts.Read more ›
After 2 years of moderate use I am getting error message "Restart to solve problem". Restarting does work, so I can produce one cup before having to restart again. Machine has been well maintained and cleaned per Mfr. instructions. Some web searching revealed others have had this problem. I believe it probably needs a new cpu (no doubt at significant cost). I did not pay $1200 for a machine that lasts 2 years! Update: Cost to have cpu replaced about $175 for the board, $150 or more labor, plus likely to replace some other parts when they get into it. Two different service companies have told me it is not unusual for these machines to have problems, in fact one guy told me he just used his last cpu to repair a unit and had to order more. I'm not inclined to spend more money on this $1200 machine only to have it last another year or 2 before service again. I sent a web form inquiry to the importer for Gaggia, importika.com, but never got a reply. So I phone them. They told me they did NOT have a list of authorized Gaggia repair centers but kindly offered that they do repairs. That was after waiting 7 minutes to a repeating message that "...you are first in line for an agent...". The customer service person I spoke with was not interested in hearing about my phone wait, nor was she interested to hear that I was seeing negative reviews about this machine as well as their company, Importika. Interestingly, the Gaggia (Italy) website has no way to send them a form or email. Seems reasonable that if you are producing a consumer product you need to provide a way for consumers to communicate other than a phone number in Italy or a US distributor that does not respond. See my video review for a look at how to access the cpu to replace it.
Wow! This machine is pretty slick. 1) The machine: definitely idiot proof and seems quite sturdy. The touch screen works well and is well set into the frame of the machine. Some touch screens seem to "give" a bit into the machine when you push them. The machine is pretty quiet. MUCH quieter than the Delonghi machines. The crema hasn't been as impressive as when I used to tamp and pull myself, but the flavor is excellent. Havn't had any problem with "oily" beans. Boot up is quite fast, and the machine has lots of prompts to let you know when to empty something, or add water, or attach the milk island. Out of the box, set up was easy. It states that there is a coffee grinder adjusting tool in the box, which I searched for extensively. I then discovered that the end of the coffee scoop has the wrench tool on it. Would have been nice of those Italians to let us americans in on this one.
2)The milk Island: I wasn't very clear on how this thing worked. Basically, you place your milk/soy milk/almond milk into the container between the min and max lines, and then turn the knob. I was used to using a thermometer, so I wasn't sure what to do here. It froths the milk nicely, and I usually just turn it off when it doesn't seem to be frothing any more, or if the sound changes pitch. Not very scientific, but I have been pleased with the results. Gaggia recommends that you take the thing apart after use, which is a bit more work than just cleaning out a metal frothing pitcher. The island has about 7 parts, and I would hate to lose one down the disposal. But, it is simple, and my daughters can now make a Latte for dad on a saturday morning. A great achievement for any parent!!
