Gaggia Accademia


One-touch espresso and milk foaming, but at a price.

We were impressed by the Gaggia Accademia. We found that it produced good quality espresso and milk drinks, and it was very easy to use. The only issues we found were a slightly confusing menu system and a drip tray that was too small and needed...

Gaggia RI9702/04


Makes a great cup of coffee, compared to the Jura I had before you can really taste the flavour of the brew. I thought the cleaning was going to be a nightmare but its not, just a weekly clean of the brew unit and emptying the drip tray, everything...

Gaggia accademia


Very easy to use. Great coffees. As with previous reviews, smallish water container. Frequent emptying of drip tray and used grinds but more than makes up for this with coffee quality and amount of adjustments that can be made. Machine will tell you...

Good coffee and beautiful looking machine

Fantastic Machine!


Straight out of the box this machine required very little adjustment to the settings. The measures of espresso and milk were fantastic for Mach Latte and Cappuccino. Milk temperature was also perfect and I was a little worried as a lot of automatic...

Milk frothing was perfect, looks awesome and ease of use.

Water level can catch you out if not careful as it is only about 4 cups worth, otherwise PERFECT in every way!
