From the manufacturer
With humble beginnings as a cafe owner in Milan, Achille Gaggia's ingenuity and passion for coffee inspired him to invent a new way to brew espresso without the use of steam. That vision led to the creation of the Lampo device which produced the characteristic crema which has since become the hallmark of quality espresso.
Automatic Coffee Machine
The Gaggia Brera grinds and brews fresh Italian espresso at the push of a button at a price that can't be beat. Customize your own espresso and cafe crema at the push of a button, at the strength you want. For lattes and cappuccinos, the pannarello wand makes milk frothing a breeze.
- Programmable Brewing
- Stainless Steel Front Panel
- Intuitive Operation
Hopper and Bypass Doser
Brew with either whole bean or pre-ground coffee with the ceramic burr grinder and bypass doser.
Pannarello Steam Wand
An intake hole siphons air directly into the milk, to create rich foam for specialty beverages.
Removable Brew Group
The brew group can be removed from the machine for regular rinsing and maintenance.
Both the water reservoir and dreg box pull out from the front of the machine for easy access.
Compare with similar items
The new face of traditional Italian espresso, the Gaggia Brera features an elegant brushed stainless steel front panel and a compact design that is much more space efficient than most machines in its class. But don't let its size fool you; this super automatic takes full advantage of advanced technology-allowing it to go toe-to-toe with the industry's heavyweights.

It is indeed a thoughtful-designed machine: front loading water and coffee ground dispenser containers, integrated grinder, panarello milk-frothing wand, small counter top foot print, etc…
Very easy to use, indeed a very automatic “1 button” experience. It does makes great “coffee”, but inferior “espresso”.
Here is the thing: an “espresso” machine is about just that. Espresso “is generally THICKER than coffee brewed by other methods, …. and has CREMA on top (a foam with a creamy consistency)”. If this is important to you, then this machine is not for you.
I’ve had this machine for about 10 days and experimented with various coffees beans and grounds to get that elusive “crema”. I followed every possible advice out there to use fresh beans, beans “good for espresso”, finely ground beans, and so forth. The machine just cannot produce a consistent shot of espresso. Sometimes the used coffee pucks were solid, sometimes they were watery. Sometimes the coffee was strong, sometimes weak. Even if the coffee was strong, it just did not have CREMA. Its inability to produce real espresso must be related to its inability to consistently dose the shot and properly “pack or compress” the dosage to produce a shot. The production of “crema” is contingent on how finely the coffee is ground and how well it is packed.
After 10 days, it just was not worth it to keep trying with the Gaggia Brera. I bought a different machine, a semi-automatic where you can control and see the amount of ground coffee in the dose, and where you control how well it is or isn’t packed. I got a machine with a pressure gauge so I can confirm the consistency of the pressure used to produce the espresso. After 3 tries, nothing but joy and delicious thick crema. No more frustrations.
Being that I live in Hawaii and no brand of superauto is serviced here, I opted for a 4-year warranty at checkout that includes shipping both ways. Also, as it seems no superauto lives much longer than a decade, I didn't want to spend over $1,000 like I did on my Titanium. So what really brought me to the Brera was price. This is what I think:
1) PRICE, obviously! Very affordable so long as it lasts a long time.
2) It's quiet! The burr grinder is WAY quieter and so is the rest of the process compared to the Titanium. And overall, it's not that noisy.
3) Delivers a decent crema. Not as thick as a pro espresso machine, but still quite nice and on par with pretty much all but the top superautos.
4) Very quick and easy access to the water reservoir and dregdrawer right in the front of the unit.
5) Still has customizable cup size. In other words, you can program how much coffee comes out when you press the small cup (espresso) button and also for the big cup (cafe crema) button.
6) Relatively compact size. A fair amount smaller than the Titanium.
1) Water reservoir is too small. It's way too small. You'll need to keep a 2L bottle of water next to the machine or you'll be constantly going back and forth to your water source.
2) Lots of rinsing cycles (I'm not talking about descaling). When you turn it on, it spits out water. When you turn it off, it spits out water. With a tiny water reservoir, this sucks. It's probably a good thing for the machine and the quality of coffee, but it drains the tiny reservoir quickly.
3) Can't adjust coffee temperature. I'm not a fan of really hot coffee. While the Brera doesn't make it scalding, it's a tad hotter than I prefer.
4) No clock. I like having clocks on my appliances.
5) Dispensing spout is not quite tall enough to accommodate my favorite coffee mug. Granted, it's a relatively tall mug but not giant. The Brera will accommodate big squatty Starbucks mugs like the kind that has the name of the city of the shop you're in though.
All in all, if you love your coffee but you're not a genuine for real coffee connoisseur, you'll love this simple effective, and convenient, machine. High quality coffee that utterly outclasses drip coffee+espresso machine combos ($100ish). If you simply must have the best coffee possible, well, this is certainly not the machine for you. But if really good, 1-button ease coffee appeals to you, this one's pretty much a no-brainer.
EDIT: Added a photo for Jeff of my programmed Big Cup amount of coffee brewed. A little over 5oz.
