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...

Would have given a 10 out of 10 as the milk could be a bit hotter, however if you do like it hotter for cappuccinos and lattes just pop the drink in the microwave for 20 seconds

Impossible to recommend

 

Purchased new February 2014. Despite cleaning the brew group regularly and performing all maintenance tasks when prompted and using appropriate products purchased from the supplier, this machine has been extremely unreliable. No problems with any of...

Extremely Reliable

 

ught I would have to get it serviced but tried to turn on again anyway. Lo and behold it finished the clean and has been running perfectly ever since. (it needed a holiday too) I bought this machine after reading reviews that Gaggia was a well made and...

Consumer review by: Jimaroc (bestbuy.com)

The best of the type available for the price!

 

We researched many Super Automatic coffee machines before we decided on the Gaggia Accademia. Apparently, Gaggia also makes the Phillips Saeco Xelsis EVO since they are very similar, but the Gaggia is not as complex and the cost is lower. Overall, we...

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

Consumer review by: Mark1937 (productreview.com.au)

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!
