Gaggia Classic Review


The Gaggia Classic is a somewhat reasonably priced espresso machine from a reputable brand. Unfortunately, we didn't think it lived up to Gaggia's...

The makes decent espresso, but that's about all the good things we can say. Other than that it is messy, difficult to use, and doesn't steam milk very well, nor does it have a built-in grinder. It is far from the best choice in this price range.

Best value espresso machine


Reviewers say that the Gaggia Classic produces a nearly perfect espresso for a fraction of the cost of high-end machines. Several users who have owned their machines for years say the Gaggia is very durable and holds up well to consistent daily use....

Simple controls, compact, durable, uses ground coffee or ESE pods

Hard to judge water level, cheap plastic tamper, cheap frothing wand, aluminum boiler susceptible to corrosion

Gaggia Classic 14101 Review


Although the Gaggia Classic espresso machine sounds like a lot of trouble, espresso purists love it. It gives you splendid-tasting espresso, beautifully steamed and foamed milk, and the added benefit of a hot water stream if you want other hot drinks....

This sturdy machine comes with a high-quality tamping tool and has the biggest water reservoir of all the espresso makers we reviewed.

There is a definite learning curve with this espresso maker.

The Gaggia Classic espresso maker yields first-rate coffee and gives you excellent frothed milk, but it takes more effort with this manual machine than it does with the more automated espresso machines.

Pouring a coffee is just a matter of flicking the hot water switch and the Classic kicks into action, pouring espresso into one or two cups, depending on the amount of coffee you put in.

The Gaggia Classic coffee machine can make espressos and cappuccinos from either ground coffee or ESE pods, and will certainly bring a touch of sleek sophistication to your kitchen. We put this coffee maker to the test to find out if, as well as...

Gaggia Classic


Very disappointed that this had so many moving parts. Found it difficult to set up and then performance was testy with espresso half way across the kitchen and then the frothed tip flew off as well!

CoffeeGeek - Gaggia Classic Machine - Alex DiCicco's Review


I've had the Classic for a year and it is a very solid machine that produces great espresso. A lot of commercial components and stainless steel body gives it that 'prosumer' feel. Heats up to temp rather quickly due to the small boiler. The fact...

Built like a tank ; Can produce great espresso ; Commercial components ; Quick heat up time

Small boiler ; Frothing attachment

CoffeeGeek - Gaggia Classic Machine - Bob Pasternak's Review


I'm new to making espresso.

Produces real espresso, with syrupy mouth feel and good crema ; Warm up is quick ; 3-Way solenoid valve is nice feature ; Doesn't take up a lot of room on kitchen counter ; Stainless Steel construction is nice

Every shot, without even one exception, is sour ; Small boiler is inadequate for steaming. I have to wait in the middle of steaming 6 ounces of milk
