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 is a compact super-automatic espresso and coffee machine that is capable of making anything from espresso to cappuccino. The Pannarello wand allows you to steam and foam your milk until it is smooth and velvety, great for topping off lattes or for making hot cocoa. At just 12.4” with a front loading dreg drawer and water reservoir, the Gaggia Brera can easily slide under your kitchen cabinets and leave plenty of counter space to spare.
- 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.
Gaggia Adapting System
The Brera's Adapting System lets it learn from your coffee, adjusting how the grinder operates to accommodate your preferred bean.
Stainless Steel Front Panels
A classic look for a classic machine. The Gaggia Brera is sure to stand out as the best looking piece in your kitchen.
Steam on demand with Gaggia Brera. Heats up to steam temperatures in under ten seconds.

First, the coffee. It really does a great job. You can program the amount of liquid (up to 8 oz for a large cup), and can adjust the strength. It is simple to use in the morning, when complex is bad!
Here is what I like:
+ The cost - this is one of the cheapest superautomatics around, and yet it looks good and feels solid.
+ It works quietly and looks nice. The reservoir for water is on the front left (behind the frothing wand), and there is an identical reservoir that holds the "pucks" that come out after making a cup. The tray slides out easily to remove the water (more on that later). This is easily the quietest superautomatic I've used. It automatically pauses for a couple of seconds to pre-moisten the coffee.
+ You can adjust the grind of the coffee in addition to the strength settings on the front (though it takes a bit of care, since it can only be adjusted when actually grinding). If you push the button twice, it does a double. Hold in the button, and it begins to "remember" the amount of liquid for that button; press it again to program the amount. There are three buttons, for small, medium and large.
+ There are a number of cryptic symbols on the front, but I actually like that - I soon got to know each of them. There is a red dot on the top left (out of water), a similar one on the top right (empty the bean hopper), and an exclamation point type thing to indicate you need to prime the machine.
+ To prime, simply turn the square knob in the middle to the right. Turning that knob to the left will put out steam from the wand. The normal position is as shown on the product page - facing up.
+ The spout moves up and down easily, making it possible to put a full coffee cup under there.
+ I especially like the coffee bin. It holds a couple cups of coffee, and the transparent lid makes it easy to see when you need more beans. There is a slot for using pre-ground coffee inside this area.
+ The machine is programmed to last a long time. When it starts up, it rinses the mechanism. Then when you power down (or it powers down automatically), it rinses again. It will also warn you when it needs descaling - I highly recommend using the Saeco descaling solution. It will work with or without a water filter, but I like using it (mostly because I always used one for the V'Spresso that lasted so long).
+ The brew group is easy to remove and clean - it is behind the door to the rear of the "puck" drawer. It is an ingenious design, and is meant to be cleaned weekly with water, and then air dried. They supply a small amount of grease to be put in one location every 500 cups or so.
There is one thing I didn't really like, although it isn't a deal breaker. The machine constantly rinses water down into the base. If you remember to put a cup under the spout when you walk away, it isn't too bad, but if not, you will find yourself changing out the tray often. You have to pull it out the front, take it to the sink, and then both rinse and (often) clean it. They many rinsings are the price that is paid for keeping the internal workings rinsed and lasting longer.
- This machine is suitable for limited use. The water only holds about 20 oz, and the puck drawer holds 5 - yes, only 5 - pucks. You will find yourself constantly filling the water and emptying the puck drawer if you use this for more than a couple of people. It isn't really a failure, it is just the design. Saeco makes several more expensive models with 60 oz water and 15 puck drawers. I would recommend that if you have a larger family.
- This particular model is wider than it is long. Most superautomatics are long and narrow - this one is the opposite. You should consider this when ordering. It takes up more space on the counter top.
Summary: Great tasting coffee, easy to use, looks great. For a couple of people, this is a really great design.
A week ago, the grinder failed when it made a loud noise and stopped suddenly. I contacted the Gaggia Technical Support and was suggested to follow the instructions of a YouTube video from Whole Latte Love to clean the grinder. Being skeptical about it, since the video said that some of the procedures shown void the manufacturer's warranty, I contacted Importika, who is the official technical support for Amazon and they suggested the same thing. Yet, cleaning the grinder did not fix the issue.
Contacting Importika for a second time I talked to a very polite employee and I was offered two options:
1. Purchase a grinder replacement (for about $70) and have it sent to me and replace it myself
2. Pay the shipping costs (round trip) and send the device to Rochester NY to be inspected and repaired.
I find it very disturbing that I need to spend more money to have a device, that was used strictly within the manufacturer's instructions, fixed within warranty!
Great coffee maker as long as it works, but warranty policy is unacceptable.

We leave it on, after one hour it cleans itself and shuts off. we have no complaints! It's part of the team in our home.
My previous machine was a Breville Barista (860)..
..had it for about 9 years+, changed some parts myself over the years.
I am happy with the Gaggia coffee making process, super easy.
I am NOT happy with brew result (yet).
On my previous machine it took many tries of different beans and roast before finding the right one that gave the results I was looking for, low acidity, dark, intense.
So at this point the brew result is a Work In Progress!!
.. unfortunately the Gaggia has a "learning" feature where the machine decides (learns over time) how to optimize the brew... so many brews required after each change in setting, at least so I have understood.
I hope this amount of automation does not end up making it too difficult to find my "right" brew result since the documentation does not really explain how this learning feature works as in, what it varies and how many runs does it need before deciding the brew is "optimized".
.. so just be aware
