In 1947, Achille Gaggia introduced the first
pressure brewing espresso machine into the world.
Today, the Gaggia Classic is a best selling model,
standing as a timeless piece of kitchen equipment
that is applauded by coffee aficionados worldwide.
With its commercial style portafilter, brew group,
and three-way solenoid valve, the Gaggia Classic
provides a combination of convenience and
maximum productivity. By creating a virtually
dry puck that is easy to knock out of the
portafilter, these features help to make clean up
simple and mess-free unlike other espresso machines that
feature pressurized style portafilters.
Heat stability and retention are also unmatched with
the Gaggia Classic, thanks to the full 1 lb of
chrome-plated marine brass that makes up its
commercial style portafilter. The Classic is
easy-to-use brewing and steaming controls are
paired with a traditional appearance that
matches stainless steel appliances and fits perfectly into any upscale kitchen,
making this machine a must-have for any at-home
barista. Includes two stainless steel
filter baskets (one and two shot), a coffee
tamper, a 7g measuring scoop, and an instructional CD.
