Gaggia Babila One Touch Coffee and Espresso Machine

Owning the Gaggia Babila

From Gaggia, comes the Babila; a dual boiler super-automatic machine geared toward simplicity and a high-level of programmability, and boasting a retro look for a modern machine. The beautiful, simple-to-use interface disguises a powerful array of drink options that we can’t help but get excited about. Like the Accademia before it, the Babila delivers on ease-of-use and programmability with its eight drink options which can be personalized by preferred strength, volume, temperature, and taste. The Babila is as flexible as it is easy to use, with its ceramic burr grinder adjustable across fifteen settings, and an integrated bypass doser for pre-ground coffee brewing. A manual steam wand, unique for one-touch machines, is integrated into the Babilia as well as an automated milk carafe, for the barista who wants convenience without sacrificing control. Similarly, the flow adjustment dial on the height-adjustable coffee dispenser allows for further refinement of the extraction. Live the good life with the Gaggia Babila.

The Babila is as easy to keep clean as it is to use. The machine is programmed to rinse the milk carafe after each use, and automated maintenance alerts keep you apprised of low beans or water, and when the dreg drawer or drip tray needs to be emptied. Plus, Gaggia’s removable brew group design allows you to slide out the group for manual cleaning in the sink. We love that Gaggia includes a water hardness test strip, and allows you to program in the result, so that the Babila can alert you when it’s time to descale or change the AquaClean water filter; but, don’t worry, that won’t be for a while, since the AquaClean keeps water nice and clean for a whopping 5000 brews. The Babila is one of Gaggia’s top tier machines, and we’re sure you’ll love it as much as we do; however, if you need a bit larger capacities, take a look at the Gaggia Accademia as it has many of the same great features as the Babila.

  1. Jasmine Jones

    The Babila is my first espresso machine. I spent a couple weeks doing reseach and decided on first the seller Harfan coffee and then after speaking with a representive from the company. I purchased the Bablia and absolutely love it. After racking up about 350 coffee/espresso drinks I’m still experimenting.

  2. Luna Scott

    After a lot of searching this website, I found my match, the Gaggia Babila! The machine was shipped quickly and was packed securely. I was able to follow the instructions and the videos to get the Babila up and brewing. This is my first espresso machine, so I know that I have a learning curve. However, I find the machine is easy to customize to myRead more about review stating After a lot of searching tastes. I am enjoying wonderful coffee, cappuccino and lattes. I really have a lotta love for my Gaggia Babila. ; )

  3. Charlie Green

    Well I had little issu to understand why the drip tray was a bit inclined when the carafe is installed. I thought it was not ok.
    The technician made a video specially for me to explain how it works.
    What can I say after that? 100% happy.
    And the machine makes delicious caffee.
    Very very happy with my gaggia babila, and for the holRead more about review stating Thx Harfan Coffee team : a big thank-you.

  4. Mia Taylor

    I purchased this last summer and use it everyday. Paired with Lavazza Super Crema, it makes delicious lattes and espresso shots. There is no water line so you have to add water every couple of days and there are a few steps to keep it clean on a regular basis but it’s very easy. I don’t think it gets any easier than this machine for quality coffeeRead more about review stating Love this machine!. There is one quirky thing… excess ground espresso drops down one side and piles up but I drag a toothbrush (that I keep in a nearby drawer) through it to brush it out.

    One other point to make, I am so happy I purchased it from Harfan Coffee, they have the best YouTube tutorial videos. When it is time to descale or change the filter, I just rewatch their videos and I am all set. It is so helpful to see the steps and how the actions are performed.

    I love love love coffee and couldn’t be happier with this machine and purchasing it from WLL.

  5. Nate Collins

    One of the best features… the detachable milk pitcher. Works great with almond and soy milks. The multitudes of coffee settings is bit of a challenge, especially when expensive “testing” with Jamaican Blue, but every cup tested was well worth it!! Very easy to learn. The only cons I see with this unit is the small water reservoir and internal dripRead more about review stating One of the best features… tray. However, if you only drink espresso shots, not a problem. Overall an excellent product, highly recommend for those who want a quick cup of your favorite latte, coffee or espresso shot.

  6. Matthew Walker

    Absolutely love this machine. Coffee in the morning and a cappuccino when I get home from work. Life is to busy to not allow you such luxury’s in life. Highly recommend this machine.
    Only thing I wished it had a larger reservoir for water. Not a deal breaker

  7. Ashton Wright

    Looks the part in any kitchen setting
    Makes great coffee after some minor tweaks.
    Great to have option of the steam wand in addition to the milk carafe
    Small foot print
    Seems well made albeit a bit plasticky in places.
    Quick heat up time
    Good variety of coffees
    Tells you when to replace water filter.
    CanRead more about review stating Expensive but worth it for the ease of use. accommodate espresso to travel size cups
    Milk carafe produces good foam/steamed milk.

  8. Tyler Bell

    We found the Harfan Coffee website extremely helpful in selecting a Gaggia automatic machine. The Babila is excellent, easy, reliable – a great purchase. Highly recommend Harfan Coffee too…
