The Gaggia Classic Pro espresso machine is ideal for someone who wants good quality espresso but doesn't want to lose a lot of counter space. With its brushed stainless steel good looks, this machine will heat up in about 5 minutes and will have you putting out espressos in no time. New on the Pro are 3 rockers switches which operate the power, brewing and steaming.
The commerical-style chrome-plated portafilter is unmatched in its heat retention and stability leading to cleanup which is easy and mess-free. This machine also features a 3-way solenoid valve which relieves pressure so you can easily discard the used coffee puck.
The turbo frother makes frothing milk easy and fun for cappuccinos and lattes. Just wipe clean and you're ready for your next round.
Making high quality espresso with a real espresso machine requires compacting the espresso with a real coffee tamper. While some espresso machines come with an inexpensive coffee tamper, these don't really give the kind of tamping that results in a high quality extraction. We do carry a large selection of attractive heavyweight coffee tampers. Not only will getting one of these coffee tampers give you higher quality, and more consistent results, but they will add to the look of your home espresso bar.
And if you'll be serving espresso, you should serve it in real espresso cups. A coffee cup will pull the heat from your espresso too quickly because of its size, and because of its area, you will lose most of the crema. Most of the crema will stick to the inner surface of a large coffee cup. So take a look at our large selection of espresso cups. And to complete the service of quality espresso, you should also take a look at our large selection of high quality demitasse spoons. It's a nice touch to match the look of your demitasse spoons to your home decor. We have a wide range of designs in spoons from baroque to classical to modern. All are high quality 18/10 stainless steel.
