Gaggia Anima Prestige Super Automatic Espresso Machine

The Gaggia Anima Prestige is an Italian made super-automatic espresso machine with a slim and chic design and the ability to brew a cappuccino or latte macchiato at the touch of a button. Its tall spouts are perfect for long coffees or luxurious layered milk drinks and the one-touch carafe conveniently froths milk and can be stored in the fridge between uses. For multi-user households or people who enjoy extra large drinks, the large reservoir makes this machine an ideal choice.

Features and Performance

The Anima Prestige is a mere 8.8” wide and 13.4” high, making it most at home under tall cabinets or on a dedicated brew bar to provide clearance for the reservoir and hopper lids. Each drink is brewed with freshly ground beans via the 5 step ceramic burr grinder. You can customize your preferred drink strength with one of 5 settings between extra mild to extra strong and your preferred temperature between low, medium and high for a range of 160 – 185° f. To guarantee perfect dosing, the Gaggia Adapting System will automatically adjust the grind cycle as it learns your coffee after several brew cycles.

For coffee drinks the Anima Prestige offers on-demand espresso and espresso lungo which can be programmed to your desired volume simply by pressing and holding the button. Pressing the button twice will cause the drink to be ground and brewed twice in a row. You can also brew using pre-ground coffee by selecting the scoop icon via the aroma strength button and filling the machine via the bypass doser.

Milk drinks are produced with one-touch thanks to the auto-frothing carafe. With the carafe locked in, the Anima Prestige can produce a cappuccino, latte macchiato, or simply frothed milk at the touch of a button. The carafe inserts into a dedicated socket on the left side of the display and can be removed and stored in the refrigerator when not in use. When the carafe is removed, Gaggia has also included a hot water spout that takes its place and also allows you to dispense hot water for americanos, tea, or hot cocoa. Milk drinks and frothed milk can be customized just like the coffee drinks to your preferred coffee and milk volume.

Thanks to its height, the Anima Prestige has a tall 60 oz water reservoir and 15 puck dreg drawer. The bean hopper holds up to 8.8oz of whole bean coffee, the frothing carafe holds 17 oz of milk, and the drip tray has a 24 oz capacity with a red float to remind you when it needs to be emptied. The brew spouts are just shy of 6” tall and the blue LED screen alerts you when you need to refill the water reservoir, add more beans, clean the carafe, empty the dreg drawer, or descale.

  1. Miriam Rojas

    Only been a week and so far, we really like this machine! We bought this for our shop and it’s super convenient.
    Espresso is pretty dang good, not the barista level good, but close enough with quality beans. Throw those Gaggia beans that come with in your garde, over roasted oily crap and get some good whole beans from your local roaster.

  2. Ermal Allushi

    2 weeks in Performance has been very good. We have to change beans as ours are too oily. We didn’t realize how much we’d enjoy the milk frother but it gets used daily. We do miss our Gaggia Titanium as we have owned two for the past 20 years but hoping the Anima Prestige satisfies for years to come.

    Love this machine,makes great latte that is actually hot, unlike my previous machine. I also love that I can setup my preferences in drinks and the machine remembers exactly how I want my coffee. Also this machine is so much quieter than my previous machines. I would definitely buy this again.

  5. Fatos Kapllani

    We absolutely live the Gaggia. We had a Saeco Vienna for about 12 years and just purchased the Gaggia. It performs perfectly with fantastic coffee. We were surprised by the amount of water in the drip tray every day but understand the auto rinse functions so no issue. If it lasts half as long as the Saeco we will be happy. Well worth add cost for Read more about review stating Gaggiaauto milk.

    For many years we have skimped by with an embarrassingly lesser machine, mostly as we were in such a small house. Having finally bought a house last year, when our sad machine died a couple months ago, we immediately came to wholelattelove to look for a much more proper machine. We would have likely gone for a lower Gaggia, which would have still Read more about review stating Why didn’t we buy this sooner??been great, but the amazing Flash sale that happened to be occurring made the Anima impossible to pass up. And, just wow…
    I’d forgotten how amazing espresso drinks could be! I was always one of those who had to add things to help cover the bitterness, but that was also as everyone uses darker roasts for their espresso. Being able to use my own lighter blend (from a new roasterd I’ve found, near our new house even!), I’m absolutely blown away. It’s dangerous as I don’t have any effect from caffeine, so I can drink it any time, and I want to now! 😀
    We’ve had it for a few weeks and it’s been working great. The indicators make it VERY obvious when we need to empty or refill various things, and I’m excited to have many years with our Anima!

    I really love my new coffee maker. From the ordering to delivery was a good experience. The customer service was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this machine for quality and convenience – it looks nice on my counter as well.
