General info

1.weight

16.33kg

9.07kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
3.thickness

419.1mm

241.3mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
4.height

387.35mm

360.7mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.Uses ground coffee
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
Ground coffee, especially if freshly roasted and ground, results in much better quality coffee than the kind of results you get with pods or capsules.
6.volume

39172.25cm³

17685.9cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Components

1.Has a commercial steam wand
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
It comes with a commercial style steam wand as opposed to a pannarello steam wand. These are harder to master but can allow you to produce better, richer milk froth.
2.Has a steam wand
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
3.Has a 58mm portafilter
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
A 58mm portafilter is the most common size in the industry, offering a greater range of accessories to purchase such as portafilter baskets and tampers.
4.Uses E61 brew group
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
The E61 brew group is the industry standard brew group for espresso machines, which delivers consistent, stable heat in order to help pull the perfect espresso.
5.Uses E61 group head
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
An E61 group head provides excellent temperature stability, a key aspect of producing great espresso. It also has the benefit of a passive pre-infusion feature.
6.Has cup warmer
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
With a cup warmer you can heat the cups before pulling your espresso so that it doesn't go cold quickly, which affects the taste and quality. It also means that you don’t have to manually heat them using hot water.

Water source

1.Water tank is transparent
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
With a transparent water tank you can easily see when it needs to be filled up. This is important as attempting to make an espresso with an empty tank can damage the machine.
2.Has integrated filter
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
3.Has a removable water tank
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
4.Has a hot water outlet
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.

Maintenance

1.Has dry puck feature
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
At the end of the extraction process, all moisture is removed from the puck. This allows you to easily tap out the coffee from the portafilter afterwards, reducing mess and the need to clean it as often.

Features

1.Has a 3-way valve
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
A 3-way solenoid valve relieves the portafilter of pressure and moisture after the extraction. This produces a dry puck which can easily be removed afterwards. It also means that you don’t have to wait for the pressure to equalise, so that you can make back-to-back coffees.
2.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
With a double boiler or heat exchanger system, you can brew and steam milk at the same time. This has an advantage over single boiler machines where you have to wait between brewing and steaming for the temperature to adjust.
3.Has a pre-infusion function
Expobar Office Control
Gaggia Classic
With a pre-infusion function you get a low pressure of water before it ramps up to around 9 bar of pressure. This gently expands the grinds to get a smooth extraction and to help prevent channeling in the cake.
