Can arrange local pick up; Suffolk County, LI, NY The PERFECT first espresso machine that will last you for years. The Gaggia Classic is a compact and rugged espresso machine that focuses on producing great espresso. It measures in at 14.2 x 8 x 9.5 inches making it a great size for any kitchen.
Its water reservoir is 72 oz and has a commercial grade 58mm group head, which is the same size you’ll find in commercial machines at your local cafe. The shell of the Gaggia Classic is stainless steel with plastic buttons, knobs, and handle. This combination of stainless steel and plastic makes it durable.
The Gaggia Classic is a single boiler semi-automatic espresso machine. This means it cannot simultaneously steam milk and extract espresso at the same time. You have to flip button to change between these functions. However the aluminum boiler itself is very powerful and packs out a lot of pressure to speed up the brewing process.
