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.

Which are the technologic differences between the traditional and the pressurized filter-holders?

The traditional filter-holder has the same size, ring and style of the professional ones, thus it requires more practice, ability and care for all involved elements. By paying attention to all details of the barista’s ritual – from the type of blend to the grinding, from the pressure used for tamping to the correct position of the filter-holder in the group – you will obtain an authentic espresso, like the one you taste in an Italian bar. The pressurized “crema perfetta” filter-holder guarantees and keeps the right pressure to get perfect in-cup results anytime, regardless your level of expertise.

What is the difference between the traditional filters and the crema perfetta filter?

The traditional filters are thought for the ones who have more experience and manual skills, while the “crema perfetta” filter is made to always get an impeccable espresso, regardless your level of expertise. Remember to use the frothing jet device with the “cream perfetta” filter.

What is the solenoid valve for?

The three-way solenoid valve relieves pressure in the filter-holder immediately after pulling a shot, improving the in-cup quality.
Water empties from the filter-holder via the open valve and ends up in the drip tray. This leaves the coffee pucks relatively dry, and their container will be easier to clean.

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).

How can I get an even warmer espresso?

To get an even warmer espresso, we suggest to follow these three little tips.

1. Turn on the machine a few minutes before using it, so it can heat properly and get ready to use.
2. Keep the clean filter-holder locked to the group – not too tight – both during the heating phase and after cleaning. This preserves the temperature and avoids termal shocks.
3. Pre-heat the cups by placing them on the cup warmer or dispense a bit of hot water with the pannarello on the cups, then wipe them with a cloth

How can I make a traditional Italian espresso?

1. Choose the blend you like the most. We suggest to select fresh coffee beans to grind at the moment to have a even richer and more intense espresso
2. Grind the coffee. Be careful to grind at the right size: not too coarse (or water will flow too fast) and not too fine (or water will not flow)
3. Insert the correct filter in the filter-holder. Remove the frothing jet device if you want to use the traditional filters.
3. Place the clean filter-holder in the group, put the cups on the cup warmer plate and switch the machine on
4. The temperature light is steady: the machine is ready to use
5. Dispense a bit of water, remove the filter-holder and fill it with ground coffee using the doser (one serving for one cup)
6. Slightly beat the filter-holder
7. Tamp for a few seconds by applying a constant and even pressure
8. Remove any coffee residues from the edges of the filter-holder
9. Lock the filter-holder in the group and press the coffee button to start the brewing process
10. Once you get the desidered in-cup quantity, press the coffee button once again to stop the brewing process. Now your espresso is ready!

Which kind of milk can I use to get an impeccable 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. Press the steam button
2. After 15-20 seconds, the steam temperature indicator light turns on
3. Turn the steam/hot water knob slightly counter-clockwise to eliminate any condensation from the wand, then close the knob again
4. Place the jug, half-filled with cold milk, under the steam wand
5. Place the steam nozzle just below the surface of the milk – avoid touching the bottom of the jug – and keep it close to the edge of the jug with an appropriate angle to produce a vortex
6. Turn the steam dispensing knob counter-clockwise to let the steam come out. To froth the milk correctly, the steam nozzle must always be in contact with the milk and not with the froth
7. Once the desired frothing has been achieved, the steam nozzle must be pushed further to heat the milk well
8. Close the steam knob by turning it clockwise to stop dispensing steam, and remove the jug
9. Press the steam button
10. Let it rest for around 30 seconds to obtain a velvety texture.

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.

Back Back to
New Classic
Which descaler can I use?

To descale your Gaggia coffee machine use only the Gaggia decalcifier, a unique solution made to ensure excellent performances of the machine throughout time. Vinegar or other descaling agents must be avoided. Never use descaling agents based on mineral acids such as sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid and sulfamic acid. These descaling agents may damage your coffee machine’s pipe and tube system.

How to properly clean the filter-holder?

In order to properly clean the filter-holder you need to:

1. Remove the filter that is installed
2. Wash the filter under tap water (not in the dishwasher)
3. Wash the inside of the traditional filter-holder under tap water (not in the dishwasher).

Back Back to
New Classic
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.

Back Back to
New Classic
Which components are removable and washable?

It is possible to remove the water tank, the pannarello, the drip tray and drip tray plate. We suggest to wash them under tap water and to delicately wipe them with a clean cloth. We advise against washing these components in the dishwasher.
