As its name suggests, the Gaggia Classic is one of the original home espresso machines. Gaggia was one of the first companies in the world to put their expertise in espresso to putting commercial-grade espresso equipment in the hands of a home barista for an affordable price. Gaggia produced their first home espresso machine in 1977 and has been a leader in the home espresso space ever since.
With their 45+ years of experience, Gaggia's newest machine for the home consumer is the Gaggia Classic Pro. With this machine, Gaggia really has considered all espresso consumers. The machine comes with both a pressurized portafilter basket and an authentic, non-pressurized portafilter basket. For beginner espresso users that don't have a grinder but still want good quality espresso-style drinks, a pressurized portafilter is a great option. Having said that, the Gaggia classic pro really begins to shine when you brew with the non-pressurized baskets. Espresso brewed at 9 bars, with freshly ground coffee really does make an incredible difference. This variety in the Gaggia Classic Pro makes it a perfect beginner machine; it will give you a great beginner foundation with lots of room to grow your skills as a home barista.
The Gaggia Classic Pro offers the entire home espresso experience, from authentic espresso to the high-grade steam wand the Gaggia Classic Pro will produce creamy and delicious flat-whites and cappuccinos or rich and intense espresso, all in the comfort of your own home. It's a robust machine, made from brushed stainless steel that is built to last. Its simple design looks great and is incredibly easy to use. It also comes with commercial-grade, chrome-plated brass portafilters (industry-standard in cafes around the world).
Gaggia home espresso machines also have an enormous global community of users that love these machines. From user tips and advice to mods and upgrades, there is a world of Gaggia to get involved in!
