The smaller footprint of the Gaggia Brera combined with its comtemporary style make it an ideal choice for people with limited counter space. Although not as big as its counterparts, the Brera delivers a big punch. Loaded with features such as Rapid Steam Technology, a Pannarello steam wand and a telescoping coffee dispenser, you will enjoy espressos, lattes and cappuccinos for years to come with this high quality espresso machine. Available in a brushed stainless steel front and your choice of side panels in either black or silver.
Pannarello Frothing Wand
The stainless steel pannarello frothing wand is very simple to use. Simply fill a frothing pitcher with milk and hold the frothing pitcher with milk up into the frothing wand. You will have froth for creamy cappuccinos and lattes in no time.
This indispensible feature is one you can't live without! It's perfect for the nights when you don't want the caffeine to keep you up and you don't feel like emptying the bean hopper. Or if you have guests that want a decaf, use the top-loading bypass doser instead. For ground coffee only.
Pre-infusion Brew System Cycle
Pre-infusion allows you to get maximum flavor from the brewing process. This advanced system takes the newly ground coffee beans from the internal coffee grinder and correctly tamps the coffee. The grounds are then gently pre-soaked and then brewed before being discarded automatically into the internal dump box. The machine then resets itself for the next brewing cycle.
The opti-dose features lets the user choose the strength of the coffee by pushing a button on the front of the machine. Choose one coffee bean for a lighter coffee, two coffee beans for a medium strength coffee, or three coffee beans for a stronger brew.
Rapid Steam Technology
Rapid steam technology eliminates downtime and assures the user that you will not have to wait between brewing espresso and steaming milk for cappuccinos and lattes.
Ceramic Burr Grinder and 8.8 oz. Bean Hopper
A quiet built-in ceramic burr grinder grinds your beans for the freshest tasting espresso without heating up the beans thereby making the coffee bitter. The bean hopper holds about 1/2 lb. of beans.
