Gaggia Espresso Red Coffee Machine


The machine looks good.

The machine failed to work and had to be returned as faulty. The manual is extremely difficult to follow and very badly translated.

Produces great coffee, I use it mainly for lattes, cappuchinos etc, and its fairly easy to use. Coffee making is not instantaneous, due to the steps you have to go through, but not laborious either (note: I haven't tried the pods facility).

None yet, as far as I'm concerned.

Best machine in its price range


I paid $180 for it here in israel (220v model) at a ‘netaction‘ auction.

Extracts good espresso, solid portafilter with spring catch for the filter basket. 58mm diameter filter matches popular ‘pro‘ grade tampers ; Relatively quick heatup (~6min), Milk steaming and frothing

Cpu warmer plate that doesn‘t really deserve its name. Looks, Somewhat flexible body

I cant break this thing ; Consistently good espresso once you get used to it

Plastic housing warps ; slow to reheat for multiple shots ; Somewhat noisy rattle from the steam relief ball valve
