General info



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.
2.warranty period


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


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.Uses ground coffee
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.


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


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


1.Has a steam wand
Gaggia Classic
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
2.Has a 58mm portafilter
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.
3.Has cup warmer
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
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 a hot water outlet
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.
3.Has a removable water tank
Gaggia Classic
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.


1.Has dry puck feature
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.


1.Has a 3-way valve
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.
