Gaggia is a 60-year-old company that is well-known for revolutionizing the coffee equipment industry. It made significant strides in improving espresso machines, including filing a patent for a steam-free espresso maker that pushed water through coffee grounds, producing only a very tiny amount of steam. This new method of making espresso also allowed for a nice layer of crema atop the espresso shot. The Gaggia company originally manufactured machines strictly for businesses, but today, there are many models of Gaggia espresso machines that can be used in the home, which are compatible with ESE pods such as illy espresso pods. Two of Gaggia's most prominent products are the Gaggia Coffee Deluxe and the Gaggia Classic Espresso machine. The Gaggia Coffee Deluxe is a premium machine with an affordable price. It features a cup warmer that can hold five cups at one time, and it is compatible with both ESE cartridges, such as illy espresso pods, and regular coffee grounds. The Coffee Deluxe has an auto frother feature that will allow you to easily include the perfect amount of milk to your beverage. What is most remarkable about the auto frother is that you have the capability of controlling the ratio of milk to air. In addition to making your favorite coffee-based drinks, the Coffee Deluxe also has a hot water dispenser, so hot chocolate and tea may also be prepared with this device. If you have a little more money to spend on an espresso machine, the Gaggia Classic Espresso machine has a stylish design and first-rate features. It is, like the Coffee Deluxe, ESE compatible and also has a cup warmer. Its stainless steel design will look great in your kitchen. If you need an espresso maker for your office, the Classic Espresso can handle the job. Both the Gaggia Classic Espresso and the Gaggia Coffee Deluxe, along with a host of other Gaggia products, may be purchased via many online retailers.
