Gaggia Accademia

Gaggia Accademia Overview

The Gaggia Accademia is a luxury Italian espresso machine that is both designed and manufactured in the outskirts of Tuscany. It is a fully automatic bean-to-cup espresso machine with a customizable menu of 19 beverages. Milk drinks can be prepared to your liking with the automatic frothing carafe, or using the commercial steam wand to produce latte art quality milk foam. The Accademia is distinguished by incorporating premium materials into its design with all-steel housing and a black glass front panel. Its 5-inch touch display features phone-like responsiveness for intuitive menu navigation and beverage preparation.

Features and Benefits

The Accademia has the rare distinction of being an Italian made and manufactured espresso machine complete with a metal frame and housing. Its full color 5-inch touch display is vivid, crisp, and highly responsive. Additional navigation is handled in the margins with a suite of four capacitive touch buttons on the left and a textured rotary knob and selector on the right. The entire front of the machine is backed with black glass and accented with the backlit Gaggia Milano red stripe. Cups can be stored on the programmable and electrically heated cup warmer that can be set with unique timers to turn on and off automatically throughout the day.

When brewing coffee beverages, each drink can be customized with a unique volume, strength setting (between 6.5 – 11.5g), a unique temperature (low, medium or high), your desired level of pre-infusion (no pre-infusion, short, medium or long), and ultimately the flow rate of the coffee using the Accademia-exclusive Espresso Plus System for regular, full-bodied or lighter cups of coffee. Beyond that, the Accademia includes the option to brew using pre-ground espresso via the bypass doser and many drinks can be doubled up via the “Two cups” function which grinds and brews a beverage twice in a row. Lastly, the Accademia serves as the debut for Gaggia’s Coffee Boost system, which initiates a second grinding cycle for your beverage while maintaining your desired volume.

Milk frothing is performed either automatically with the removable carafe, or manually by means of the commercial steam wand. The Accademia’s 11 milk beverages are prepared with the carafe and can be customized with your desired milk volume and texture (across four variations of milk foam consistency). Milk can also be frothed manually with the commercial steam wand, which articulates on a ball joint for perfect positioning in your frothing pitcher. The steam wand can also dispense hot water for standard infusions and 195°F water for Black Tea and 175°F water for Green Tea.

  1. Alice Kelly

    Overall, I like this machine. It has some problems that really bother me, but a lot about it is great as well.

    Pros:
    Interface: The interface is easy to use and very intuitive.

    Coffee Drinks: The flavor, texture, and temp of the coffee drinks are all great.

    General Drink Customization: Really love that you have so muRead more about review stating Good, but not greatch control over your drinks. It really allows you to dial things to what you want.

    Look: The styling is beautiful.

    Milk Foam: The texture on the milk is what I want it to be and I love that it can be customized.

    Steam Wand: It’s a great feature, but it will take me time to get used to it.

    Cons:
    Milk Drink Temperature: The milk temperature from the caraffe is really low. I measured the temperature of a latte at high temp (no other adjustments), and it was only 120° F. You have the steam wand as an option, but I don’t want to be required to use it for a midday weekday drink.

    Definitely the most disappointing part of the machine, especially one this expensive.

    Drip Tray: The internal drip tray fills up surprisingly fast. It is needs emptied after 3-4 drinks. Inconvenient, but not a deal breaker. It’s one of those things I wouldn’t expect from a machine in this price point.
