Gaggia Espresso Machines are the winningest brand on The Coffee Insider. They have fully 8 slots on our list of the Best Super Automatic Espresso Machines, more than any other manufacturer.
The reason is simple, the company does everything right. Outstanding brewing with the best crema and some of the best aroma and flavor available anywhere. Most of their models have stainless steel boilers and a fantastic pre-infusion technology.
With excellent, usually ceramic grinders that retain little and grind consistent, even and relatively quietly.
Milk is where they really stand out. With integrated carafe, cappuccinatore and panarello wands, no Gaggia produces anything less than stellar, velvety smooth microfoam.
Their super automatics deserve the accolades. They combien excellent design, classic looks and innovation that delivers. We are big fans and always welcome a new model.
In 1938 Achille Gaggia patented the first espresso machine. His innovation moved away from steam and used water call espresso. By highly pressurizing the water his machine produced a richer drink with the crema we associate with espresso.
That heritage lives today. Gaggia produces some of the best respected automatic espresso machines and manual espresso machines available anywhere.
