Gaggia Classic Prestige

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.

  1. Maja Horvat

    One week in and we have been loving this machine! Coming from an older Breville Cafe Roma, this has been a great upgrade. Great extraction, surprisingly powerful steam wand, and more.

    Excited to see what more we can do with this new machine!

  2. Klara Lovren

    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.

    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.

    It takes some finesse trying to figure this machine out but there are countless groups devoted to this machine aRead more about review stating Awesome experience!nd it has so much potential. It’s been fun trying to figure out all of it’s little nuances. It may be from my inexperience but it’s hard getting a good shot out of it right away and I’m still learning!

  4. Toni Kranjčar

    Absolutley pleased with this purchase!! I was a little nervous about learning to use this, but with all the videos available on the HARFAN COFFEE Youtube channel it is easier to do. Now I am no expert but I do like the shots I am pulling with this machine. I am looking forward to honing my skills.

  5. Duje Mlakar

    Love this machine! It’s my first real espresso machine so I’m still building up skills, but every fresh ground shot is really pretty darn forgiving and, to my palette, delicious!

    I also ordered a replacement group head gasket (silicone) and opted for a bottomless portafilter so I could ramp my learning rate a little quicker. Would highlyRead more about review stating Perfect for the Entry Hobbyist recommend both.

    My next order is going to include one of those portafilter funnels and a better tamper, the included tamper is my least favorite thing in the package.

  6. Sven Milić

    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.

    It is very well built and even though I have a lot to learn about making espresso, the coffee is turning out delRead more about review stating Lives up to all the recommendations.icious and much better than with my previous machine. I will be adding some modifications to this, but that is why I wanted the Gaggia is that I can modify and upgrade it.
