Gaggia Classic review

 

It's what a good espresso machine should be: simple to operate and capable of producing perfect espresso shots

Pouring a coffee is just a matter of flicking the hot water switch and the Classic kicks into action, pouring espresso into one or two cups, depending on the amount of coffee you put in.

Best value espresso machine

 

Reviewers say that the Gaggia Classic produces a nearly perfect espresso for a fraction of the cost of high-end machines. Several users who have owned their machines for years say the Gaggia is very durable and holds up well to consistent daily use....

Simple controls, compact, durable, uses ground coffee or ESE pods

Hard to judge water level, cheap plastic tamper, cheap frothing wand, aluminum boiler susceptible to corrosion

Gaggia Classic

 

Read about the functions and features of the Gaggia Classic that make it stand out as a quality espresso machine.

The Gaggia Classic comes in a variety of colors to match your kitchen color scheme

This espresso machine lacks important safety features including a polarized plug and a short cord

Coming straight from Italy, the Gaggia Classic makes espresso using a powerful bar pump pressure system.
