TECHNICAL INFORMATION
What is the difference between a manual and a superautomatic espresso machine?

If you’d like to relive the traditional barista’s rituals at home and be the protagonist of your espresso, a manual machine is the best choice. Learning how to make an impeccable espresso requires care and practice, but it is definitely worth it. Thanks to the pannarello, you can also prepare creamy cappuccinos and experiment the “latte art” easily, as well as dispense water for teas and infusions. In this way, you will have a personal “coffee corner” at your home. If you prefer to obtain excellent results in a fast way, a superautomatic machine is what suits you the best. Just by pressing a button, it makes espresso, cappuccino and other hot beverages that can be customized as you prefer in a few easy steps. Moreover, the integrated grinder lets you have freshly ground coffee at every use.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TRADITIONAL FILTER-HOLDER AND A FILTER-HOLDER FOR DOUBLE-WALL FILTERS?

The traditional filter-holder has the same size, ring and style of the professional ones, thus it requires more practice, ability and attention to all the elements involved. The filter-holder for double-wall filters is thought to make it easy to obtain an authentic espresso with crema naturale, no matter the level of expertise of the user.

Can I use pods?

The Gaggia manual espresso machines offer the possibility to use paper pods. To get a good in-cup result, it is fundamental to follow the procedure illustrated in the instruction booklet. Be sure to use the correct filter (traditional filter for 1 cup) and standard pods (44mm).

BEVERAGES MAKING
HOW CAN I MAKE A TRADITIONAL ITALIAN ESPRESSO?

1. Choose the coffee blend you like the most and be sure that it is a high-quality selection.
2. If you decide to use coffee beans, grind them at the right size: not too coarse (or water will flow too fast) and not too fine (or water will not flow). If you use pre-ground coffee, please make sure the granulometry is for espresso
machines.
3. Insert the “crema perfetta” filter for 1 cup of ground coffee in the filter-holder. If you want to make 2 espresso, use the filter for 2 cups.
4. For a single espresso, put one (or one and a half) spoon of ground coffee, using the ground coffee measuring spoon. For 2 cups, use 2 spoons.
5. Slightly press with the opposite part of the ground coffee measuring spoon.
6. Remove any coffee residues from the edges of the filter-holder
7. Lock the filter-holder so that the small triangle on it and the small triangle on the machine are aligned. This is the only correct position.
8. Press the coffee button to start the brewing process
9. Place one or two cups on the drip tray
10. When you get the desired in-cup quantity, press the button once again to
stop the brewing process!

HOW CAN I MAKE A GOOD ESPRESSO BY USING COFFEE PODS?

To get the best result using a coffee paper pod, it is fundamental to follow the instruction booklet step by step. Every coffee pod is different, so make sure to choose quality ones, and the ones that suit your tastes the most.
Once the machine is ready:

  1. Insert the correct filter for pods in the filter-holder
  2. Put the pod inside it
  3. Place the POD SYSTEM on the pod so it adheres perfectly
  4. Lock the filter-holder to the machine so the two small triangles (on the filter-holder and on the machine) are aligned.
  5. Click on the “espresso” button to brew your espresso.
  6. Once you’ve reached the desired quantity, click on the espresso button to stop the brewing. Enjoy!
Which milk can I use to get a velvety milk froth?

We suggest to use whole cold milk (at circa 5° C / 41° F), with a protein content of at least 3% and a fat content of at least 3.5%. Proteins will incorporate air in the cream, while fats will make it dense and steady. Also semi-skimmed cow milk, some lactose-free milk and soy drink are proven to deliver a good result.

How can I froth milk for cappuccinos and other drinks?

1. Place a cup under the pannarello
2. Press the steam button. When the light is steady, the machine is ready to dispense steam.
3. Turn the steam/hot water knob slightly counter-clockwise to eliminate any condensation from the pannarello 4. close the knob again and remove the cup.
5. Place a jug, filled for 1/3 with cold milk, under the pannarello
6. Turn the steam dispensing knob counter-clockwise to let the steam come out. Move the jug slowly, up and down, to heat the milk evenly, and turn the knob clockwise.
7. Once the desired frothing has been achieved, close the steam knob by turning it clockwise to stop dispensing steam, and remove the jug.
8. Press the steam button

For more details, please follow the procedure in the instruction booklet

Can I use mineral water?

Yes, you can use mineral still water or tap water. It is important not to use sparkling water as it can negatively affect the brewing process.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I USE A FILTER FOR TWO ESPRESSOS, TO MAKE ONE?

If you use the filter for two cups of coffee with a single dose of ground coffee, the espresso will be watery, and the coffee puck will be very wet.

WHY IS IT DIFFICULT TO LOCK THE FILTER-HOLDER?

At first use, we suggest to lock the filter-holder to the machine by making a few movements from left to right. If you use a pod, make it sure that it is a standard one (with a diameter of 44 mm, and with a not too finely ground coffee inside it), and that the Pod System is placed correctly on it.

WHY DOES WATER COME OUT OF THE FILTER-HOLDER WHILE BREWING?

This issue can be related to:
1. the filter-holder is not properly locked
2. the ground coffee in the filter is too much, or it is too finely ground
3. the pod and/or the Pod System are not positioned correctly
4. the pod is too curved or it contains a too finely ground coffee

HOW DOES THE POD SYSTEM WORK?

The Pod System allows the perfect adherence of the pod to the group, ensuring the correct brewing of coffee. After inserting the proper filter for pods in the filter-holder, place the pod inside it, and place the Pod System on top of it. Make sure it is positioned correctly.

HOW DOES THE PRE-BREWING AFFECT THE RESULT?

The automatic pre-brewing allows a better extraction of the coffee aromas and a homogeneous brewing, avoiding channeling. It consists in a first shower of hot water that stays in contact with ground coffee followed by a few seconds of pause, before the actual brewing.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO SAVE MY FAVORITE ESPRESSO?

Yes, the machine has a memo function to save the brewing time of your espresso, to find it at every next use. You can modify and cancel it whenever you want. We suggest to check the user manual in the chapters “How to save your espresso” and “How to disable the Memo function” for more details.

WHY IS THE DIAMETER OF THE TAMPER SMALLER THAN THE DIAMETER OF THE FILTER?

The tamper is designed to be used both when tamping using the filter for two cups (which is slightly wider) and the filter for one (which is slightly smaller).

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
FIRST USE: HOW TO PRIME/FLUSH THE MACHINE?

Before you use your Manual Espresso machine for the first time or in case the internal circuit has run out of water, you need to flush/prime the machine with fresh water. Follow these instructions:

  1. Rinse and fill the water tank.
  2. Insert the plug to turn the machine on.
  3. Place a container, a cup or a jug under the pannarello (steamer).
  4. Rotate the knob on the side by turning it counter-clockwise. A water stream will come out the pannarello.
  5. Once you see a fluid water stream coming out, stop it by turning the knob clockwise.
  6. The machine is now ready to be used!
When and how to clean the filters?

Filters must be kept clean to guarantee an every day perfect result. If you notice a malfunction when brewing coffee, immerse the filters in boiling water for 10 minutes and then rinse them with running water. For a more thorough cleaning, use the Gaggia oil remover tablets.

When do I have to descale my machine?

Scale is a normal consequence of using the machine, and it depends also on the quality of the water you use. We suggest to descale the machine every 2 months and/or whenever you notice a reduction in the water flow. We suggest to follow the step-by-step procedure illustrated in the instruction booklet and to only use the Gaggia descaler that is especially thought especially for our espresso machines.

WHY DO THE COFFEE LED AND STEAM LED FLASH SIMULTANEOUSLY?

The two buttons flash to alert that it is necessary to low the temperature of the machine. This happens when:
1. You have finished to use the steam function, and you want to brew coffee, which requires a lower temperature
2. Brewing has started but there is no more water in the container
In both cases, after checking that the water tank is filled, brew water from the pannarello by turning the side knob.

THE MACHINE IS NEW. I’VE TURNED IT ON, THE ON/OFF BUTTON FLASHES BUT THE MACHINES DOESN’T WORK.

At first use, it is necessary to prime the circuit with water in order to use the machine. Fill the water container and open the steam/hot water side knob to brew water from the pannarello until the three buttons flash simultaneously.
