Gaggia is quite well known for its coffee kit, and not just any coffee kit, but its high quality gear. Using one of the Italian brand’s machines pretty much guarantees a good sip of coffee. Celebrating the 45th anniversary since the launch of the first home espresso machine, Gaggia has launched a special edition machine.
Now the Gaggia Classic Espresso Machine is available in the original and signature color Red Lobster. It looks like the original Baby Gaggia (above), the sister machine to this one. The new finish offers a nostalgic touch to the original kit, while retaining the modern features of newer machines.
With a mix of easy-to-use and professional features, the Gaggia Classic presents itself as a professional device. It’s for pros and amateurs alike. With its dimensions of 23 cm × 38 cm × 24 cm, the espresso machine will fit perfectly on your kitchen counter or in a more professional setting. The signature lobster red color means your machine will look great while smoking your coffee.
It comes with a traditional style boiler and an oversized heating element, for precise temperature control. The head of the group is made of chrome-plated brass to maintain the temperature throughout the extraction process. You’ll get up to 15 bars of pressure on the classic, leading to smooth crema on your espresso.
There is a three-way solenoid valve to relieve portafilter pressure after firing a shot. Equipped with a drip tray, three-button control and milk steamer wand, the Gaggia Classic comes with all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a manual espresso machine.
This Red Lobster finish on Gaggia’s Classic is sure to please all collectors and coffee lovers. It’s also a fantastic option for anyone looking to buy a new espresso machine, given the reputation of the brand. The Red Lobster version of the Classic is available to order from Gaggia Direct for £430.
