Gaggia are responsible for designing and manufacturing some of the very best - and most reliable - of all espresso machines. Applying the lessons that they learn in coffee bars around the world to the machines that they make for the home means that we can all make espresso like a true barista. Any new machine from Gaggia is always a call for celebration - and if you like a traditional espresso maker which wouldn't look out of place on the counter of a traditional Italian bar, the stylish good looks of the Gaggia Carezza Deluxe Espresso Coffee Machine will fit perfectly.
It's designed to take freshly ground coffee - or for convenience, it will also make a perfect espresso using ESE (Easy Serve Espresso) pods. They're both widely available from local food stores or supermarkets - we stock ESE pods here at Steamer Trading, too - so you'll never be stuck for coffee when the guests are arriving for a dinner party.
The Gaggia isn't just about espresso, though. It features a traditional steam arm and a powerful 1900W boiler, which results in excellent milk frothing capabilities. If you want to make frothy cappuccinos or smooth lattes, whilst practising your barista skills with the milk jug, the Gaggia allows you control over foam thickness and temperature that you won't get with an automatic milk frother. It'll make the perfect hot chocolate, too - just add cocoa powder or flakes of freshly grated chocolate for an indulgent, smooth cup of the best hot chocolate you'll taste.
You'll notice some clever features on this new Gaggia that will make it even easier to produce the perfect coffee. The NEW double-walled Crema Perfetta filter holder automatically tamps down the ground coffee to the ideal consistency - without the guesswork. A pre-brewing function provides an enhanced aroma and the temperature gauge means you'll always know when the machine is at the correct level. Keeping an espresso machine clean is key to great results. The Carezza DeLuxe has a self-rinse cycle and an indicator that tells you when it's time to descale - ensuring your machine can give you many years of service. A metal top plate on the machine is perfect for keeping cups warm, ready for your next shot of espresso at exactly the right temperature.
