Gaggia Classic Prestige in Cherry Red

Gaggia Classic Prestige Overview

The Gaggia Classic Prestige is an upgraded version of the Classic Pro semi-automatic espresso machine. Bundled with both official Gaggia accessories and precision brewing components from Barista Improving Taste, it improves on the performance and look of the Classic Pro while remaining an incredible value.

Features and Performance

With its 58mm chrome plated brass portafilter and precision Barista Improving Taste 18g basket, the Classic Prestige can pull shots on par with specialty coffee shops. The portafilter itself is a serious upgrade, featuring a high quality ashwood handle and comes paired with an ashwood handle 58mm tamper. The commercial style chrome plated brass brew group provides further temperature stability and the 3-way solenoid valve relieves pressure after brewing for clean and easy to knock out pucks of espresso.

Internally, the Classic Prestige brews using a vibration pump with thick rubber mounts for noise reduction. Its aluminum boiler features externally embedded heating elements that are protected from burning out and heats up to brew temperature in roughly one minute.

To operate the machine, a suite of high quality rocker switches are used to power the machine on and off, brew, and switch between brew and steam mode. A pair of two thermostats regulate the boiler for brew and steam temperatures with LED ready lights to indicate when the machine is up to temp for your selected mode.

For steaming milk, the commercial style steam wand takes a bit of practice, but can produce latte art quality milk foam when used with proper technique. Final touches include the one-piece steel housing which encompasses the entire machine with a timeless brushed finish and curved elements to match the contours of the drip tray.

    I had absolutely no issues ordering and receiving my new Gaggia! Everything looked perfect and I loved the portafilter and steam knob. They feel like the real deal when you are making an espresso and they are beautiful accents.

    Received this machine very quickly, it was properly packed and the item was like new with everything in order and working 100 percent. Now I can pull great shots with ease and consistently. I dream of using this Gaggia when I wake up in the morning. Love it and so will you.

  3. Auður Guðjónsdóttir

    This is my first “REAL” espresso machine and I love it. I was a bit apprehensive about it being refurbished, but it is perfect. There isn’t a mark on it and when I opened it up to look inside almost all the components are new.

I will be adding some modifications to this, but that is why I wanted the Gaggia is that I can modify and upgrade it.

    With an easy mod and purchasing a bottomless portafilter, you have top quality espresso at home! The pro steam wand is great, but you do need to learn to use it properly. Seems easy enough to care for so far. I would suggest giving the tank a good wash and run water through the machine a few times before making coffee with it.

  5. Berglind Gunnarsdóttir

    I’ve had a few espresso machines of different quality over the years, a couple of which were supposed to be “prosumer” type machines and nothing holds a candle to the Gaggia Classic. There’s an elegant simplicity to the machine that makes it a delight to use. The build quality is excellent and there are more educational videos out there than you cRead more about review stating Everything you need and nothing you don’t!an watch in a lifetime.
