Gaggia Espresso Machines

There are really only a few staple companies in the world of espresso and Gaggia is certainly one of them. Their espresso machines are some of the most widely used and popular in the world - and for good reason. Whatever your price range - I'm sure you can find something to fit perfectly that will last for years to come.

The Company

Achille Gaggia, the founder of the company is often called the father of the modern espresso industry because he applied for a patent to make the worlds first steamless modern machine (back in 1938). His company was started around a decade later in 1947-48 and has been going strong ever since.

The company initially developed commercial espresso makers, and it wasn't till around 1977 or so that they started to develop home models. These days home machines are the companies main focus. Unlike some companies that farm out the work to China, Gaggia machines are still made in Milan like they always have been.

The Machines

Lots of espresso maker companies sell a handful of low-end, middle, and high-end models. Gaggia doesn't offer a handful, they offer a flood of different models. It can even be a little hard to keep track of them all, or keep them straight! But we're going to try today.

Here are some of the automatic models they offer:

  • Accademia Gaggia
  • Platinum Vision
  • Gaggia Brera
  • Platinum Swing Up

  • Classic
  • Espresso Dose
  • Espresso Color
  • Espresso Pure
  • Evolution Espresso
  • Viva Gaggia

And of course, they also offer a capsule machine for Illy pods called the Gaggia for Illy and Gaggia for Illy Plus (the difference between the two seems to be just color).

And not to be outdone, they also offer a line of coffee bean grinders:

  • Anteprima prodotto
  • MDF Grinder-Doser
  • MM Coffee Grinder
  • MM Steel
  • ML Coffee Grinder
  • ML Steel

See what I mean? It's hard to keep them all straight, especially since I just mentioned the broad model names, they break down even further into numbers like the Gaggia 102534, or the Gaggia 12700 - you get the picture. There is just a vast array of choices to pick from that can be mind boggling!
