2

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
2.thickness

427mm

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.

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.

386mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

280mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

46150.16cm³

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

Components

2.Has an integrated grinder
Gaggia Accademia
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
3.Cup clearance is adjustable
Gaggia Accademia

With a larger cup warmer you can heat more cups at a time, particularly useful if you are making many coffees at once.

2.water tank capacity

1.6l

An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.

Features

1.programmable buttons

These buttons can be programmed for different types of coffee such as an espresso, doppio or ristretto. This means once you have mastered a particular style of coffee, you can get it the same every time.

3.Has one touch cappuccino
Gaggia Accademia

4.milk frother capacity

0.6l

A larger integrated frother means it is possible to create more frothed milk for use in coffee-based drinks such as cappuccinos.
5.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Gaggia Accademia
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.
6.Has a pre-infusion function
Gaggia Accademia
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.

Miscellaneous

1.Uses ground coffee
Gaggia Accademia
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.
