What we Liked Most about the Gaggia Home Espresso Machine

Owners found it very easy to fill the machine with water. You simply slide out the container which you can do even while you’re making espresso. The milk frother has a plastic attachment to the pipe which contains air channels. This is a simple but ingenious solution which ends up making perfectly frothed milk.

What we Did Not Like about the Gaggia Home Espresso Machine

Some people found the machine a little hard to use at the beginning, while other thought the milk temperature could be improved. As well, they found the machine a little bit noisy, but then I suppose most espresso machines are somewhat noisy.

Morea about the Gaggia Home Espresso Machine

Gaggia Home Espresso MachineThere are a few things to keep in mind when using this machine. You will want to make sure that the water reservoir doesn’t run dry while making your espresso.

The frothing wand does a great job of making steamed milk. The boiler has enough milk for one cappuccino or latte but you will need to replenish the boiler after use by engaging the steam until the ready light comes back on. You need to do this so the machine doesn’t run out of steam.

Make sure you take care to keep all the frothing wand pieces together when you wash them since the parts are very small.

I would recommend this home espresso machine as the best that I’ve seen for this price. As well it is a very well build machine and should give you many years of faithful service.
