Founded in 1938 by Achille Gaggia, the brand became synonymous with espresso. Take for example, the Fellini move from the Orchestra Rehearsal, which was created on a Gaggia Lever machine. An icon in the industry, the original Gaggia Classic was created in 1991. Over 30 years later, it’s still a favourite machine amongst home espresso enthusiasts.
With some well thought out updates to modernize the Gaggia Classic Pro in 2019 such as the visible water tank and tactile rocker switches, it’s a surefire machine designed to grow with the user. Using a commercial size 58mm portafilter, finding accessories is simplified and provides the ability to really grow into the machine.
The Gaggia Classic Pro’s petit single boiler allows for near continuous hot water once the machine has adequately heated up. Perfect for the individual user for a first espresso machine or solo espresso lover.
