Gaggia Classic Coffee

Consumer Democracy
27 August 2008
  • Summary: This is an excellent, high-quality espresso machine. But it is not for the brainless or those who want everything in their lives to run on automatic pilot. Great espresso is an art, the confluence of good beans, a high-quality grinder, operator tamping technique and a good machine.
  • Pros: With a little instruction and practice you can make a rick crema-topped espresso.

Great starter machine - but make sure you learn how to use it

Rob A, Amazon
31 December 2014
  • Summary: If you're tired of the insipid brew produced by capsule machines like Nespresso, the Gaggia Classic is the simplest step up into the world of real espresso coffee. Don't waste your money on "toy" espresso machines - I had a Dualit which could never produce a decent coffee ("pull a shot" in the...

What has happened to Gaggia????????

lonsdale76, Amazon
14 December 2014
  • Summary: I used to be a huge fan of Gaggia, but after my third Gaggia classic in 4 years has died, I have given up on this company. They are simply not made to last any more and can only justify the price by the brand name.

Quality costs, and this is quality.

Gaz, Amazon
19 October 2014
  • Summary: I replaced a Gaggia Gran Prestige (which sounds like it should be a better product than this) with this Gaggia Classic. If you're looking at both online and wondering where the extra £150 is going, you really need to see them in the flesh so as to speak. The prestige is almost all plastic.

Buy with confidence

JohnS, Amazon
27 September 2014
  • Summary: My first Gaggia Classic wore out after about 12 years. Bought this replacement about 6 mnths ago. Well built machine, makes great coffee. You do need to look after it though, eg regular cleaning, gasket replacement), as you would with any coffee machine.

Lasted 15 months

stormalong, Amazon
28 April 2014
  • Summary: I thought it was OK but I began to get problems with intermittent flow. Descaling didn't make any difference. The fault was quite random. Now there's no flow at all, just a few drips. Water/steam still comes out of the wand.

A quality machine from a quality supplier

Hallyboy, Amazon
16 February 2014
  • Summary: What can I say about Amazon other than WOW! They supplied the latest version of the Classic – the one with the ‘Crema Perfetta’ filters (of which more later) - for about £45 cheaper than I could get it elsewhere and delivered it within 24 hours on free super saver delivery.

Perfect

Cam, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: If you want a robust, quality espresso machine that will do everything you need it to, then this must be on your shortlist - not least because it has been around for ages and is considerably cheaper than many other 'professional' machines. I understand Gaggia is now owned by Philips.

Not bad, expected more

oknepop, Amazon
20 October 2013
  • Summary: So to start off, I think the Gaggia Classic is great. I can understand why many see it as the entry-level "good" machine. It's my first espresso maker, it looks nice and does what it should. With that in mind, I had to return my first one due to a faulty steam valve and a cracked group head.

Milk Frother

J Herron, Amazon
2 May 2013
  • Summary: This is a replacement machine to an identical one I have for 4 years. On its first use the black nozzle flew off spraying the side of my cheek with boiling hot milk. Double checked that the nozzle was fitted correctly which it was. Tried again the following day, again nozzle flew off.
