General info

1.warranty period

2

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

7.3kg

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.
3.thickness

265mm

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.volume

25970cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
5.Uses ground coffee
Gaggia Baby
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.width

245mm

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

Components

1.Has a commercial steam wand
Gaggia Baby
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
Gaggia Baby
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
3.Has a pressure gauge
Gaggia Baby
One of the most important aspects to pulling a great espresso is the amount of pressure used. Aspects such as how tightly tamped the portafilter is can affect the pressure and therefore the overall quality of the extraction. A pressure gauge helps you to adjust your process to achieve a perfect 9 bar of pressure.
4.Has a 58mm portafilter
Gaggia Baby
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.
5.Has cup warmer
Gaggia Baby
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.
6.Has an integrated grinder
Gaggia Baby
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.

Water source

1.Water tank is transparent
Gaggia Baby
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
Gaggia Baby
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
3.Has PID controller
Gaggia Baby
A PID controller controls the temperature of the boiler electronically. It offers a far greater degree of accuracy and consistency than a regular, mechanical thermostat used to control temperature. This is very important as a temperature of around 92°C to 96°C is key to pulling the perfect espresso.
4.Has a hot water outlet
Gaggia Baby
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
5.Has a removable water tank
Gaggia Baby
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
6.water tank capacity

1.6l

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.

Maintenance

1.Indicates when drip tray is full
Gaggia Baby
With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.
2.Has cleaning alert
Gaggia Baby
The machine alerts you when it requires cleaning.
3.Has dry puck feature
Gaggia Baby
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.
4.Prevents overheating
Gaggia Baby
It has an internal fuse/thermal sensors which prevents the machine from overheating.

Features

1.Has a 3-way valve
Gaggia Baby
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.Has a pre-infusion function
Gaggia Baby
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.
3.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Gaggia Baby
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.
4.programmable buttons

0

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.
5.Has a shot timer
Gaggia Baby
The time taken to pull an espresso shot is one of four key elements, and should be around 19-22 seconds. Once you have the grind, dose and tamp correct, you can use the shot clock to time the pull perfectly.
