Gaggia Classic Prestige in Thunder Black

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.

    This is a great smaller profile machine for those who don’t have the luxury of counter space. I purchased this machine as an upgrade from a Francis Francis X5 that I thought never produced great crema. (Little did I know the issue was due to lack of a good grinder.) I purchased a Baratza Encore ESP to go with my new Gaggia and discovered both machRead more about review stating Economical upgradeines made great espresso. Gifting my Francis Francis to a friend who had always coveted it, I embarked on a new espresso journey with the Gaggia. While I’m still learning the intricacies of perfect shot timing, this machine produces delicious, enjoyable espresso for me every day.
