The Gaggia Classic is one of our best sellers since we began . Over time, Gaggia has added improvements designed to enhance the user experience while staying true to their commitment to produce espresso equipment that is on par with the best in the industry.
The Gaggia boiler system is very unique. It is designed of highly conductive Alloy boiler with two heating elements. The heating elements are imbedded into the exterior sides of the boiler, providing even heat distribution. Having the highest wattage system available, incorporated into a low volume boiler (3.5 ounces) provides excellent temperature stability and will heat up quicker.
3 Way Solenoid Valve
The three-way solenoid valve is a commercial feature that relieves the water pressure off the coffee when the brew switch is turned off. This serves two functions; it dries out the coffee to prevent dripping and makes it easy to knock the coffee out of the portafilter with one knock.
High Quality Controls with Temperature Ready Light
The Classic contains three rocker arm switches. The one on the left is the main power switch. It has an indicator light built into it that is illuminated whenever the machine is turned on. The middle switch is the steam switch. When turned on it will heat the boiler up to steam temperature. The far right switch operates the pump and is also known as the brew switch. To start the brewing process just turn on the brew switch, wait until you have reached your desired volume and then turn off the switch. There is an indicator light built in that is illuminated whenever the boiler reaches operating temperature.
Preheating your cups is very important. The Classic has a cup warmer that will hold up to five espresso cups. It is a passive type heater which means it is heated with the residual heat from the boiler.
FROTHING & HOT WATER:
Hot Water Dispenser
If you want hot water for any reason, be it Hot Chocolate, Tea or Americanos it is very easy to do. Just turn on the pump (brew) switch and open the steam knob. Hot water will start to stream out.
Improved Turbo Frother Steam Wand

Thermostat and Safety Switches

The high limit will turn off the power to the boiler in the event of a malfunction thus preventing the boiler from overheating.
