General info

1.warranty period

2

2

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

9.07kg

4kg

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

241.3mm

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.Uses ground coffee
Gaggia Classic
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
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.
5.height

360.7mm

297mm

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

203.2mm

200mm

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 Classic
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
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 Classic
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
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
Gaggia Classic
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
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.Has a display
Gaggia Classic
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
The device has an electronic display to present information to the user.
5.Has an integrated grinder
Gaggia Classic
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
6.Has cup warmer
Gaggia Classic
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
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
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
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 Classic
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
3.Has a hot water outlet
Gaggia Classic
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
4.Has a removable water tank
Gaggia Classic
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
5.Has direct water connection
Gaggia Classic
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
The coffee machine can connect directly to the water supply. This ensures you never have to refill the machine with water.

Maintenance

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

Features

1.Has a 3-way valve
Gaggia Classic
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
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 shot timer
Gaggia Classic
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
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.
