Make a statement with the Gaggia Espresso Color! Housed in bright red ABS plastic, the Gaggia Espresso Color semi-automatic espresso machine is a stylish standout. It produces high-quality crema-topped espresso that’s sure to please any discerning home barista, whether they’re a beginner or an aficionado. The Color’s internal mechanisms are just as well designed as its chic exterior – it houses a stainless steel boiler for brewing and steaming, and uses a chrome plated brass commercial style portafilter. Not to forget about milk-based drinks, the Gaggia Espresso Color offers a Pannarello wand for easy frothing and steaming. Its perfect blend of functionality and eye pleasing style makes the Gaggia Espresso Color a welcome addition to any modern home.

Weight - 10lbs

Warranty - New items: One year parts/labor, plus one year extended warranty.
Reconditioned Items: 6-month limited warranty.

Exterior and Control Pad - There are few buttons, so learning to brew and steam is simple. There is a brew switch with an on and off light, steam switch and a correct temperature light located on the top of the machine.

Chrome-Plated Brass Portafilter - Commercial style brewing is the name of the game on this semi-automatic espresso machine. The portafilter comes with 3 different filter holders for pods, single shots, or double shots.

Pods or Ground - The chrome plated brass portafilter works with pods or ground coffee. “Pods” are pre-packaged single servings of espresso – they cut down on mess and prep time, since you don’t have to grind, measure, or tamp beans. However, if you prefer more control, you can use your choice of ground coffee.

Pannarello Frothing Wand - The Pannarello frothing wand is designed so that even beginners can foam and steam milk with ease, making lattes, cappuccinos, steamers, and more. Press the steam button, wait for the machine to warm up, then open the steam knob to release steam.

Hot Water Dispenser - If you prefer an americano to a cappuccino, or if there’s a tea lover in your house, the Gaggia Color’s hot water dispenser will come in handy. The Pannarello frothing wand doubles as a hot water dispenser – just open the steam knob and press the brew button. Hot water will be released.

Water Reservoir - The 42 oz water reservoir can be removed from the back of the machine. Since impurities in your tap water can cause lime scale buildup on the Espresso Color’s brewing components, Gaggia recommends using filtered or distilled water for brewing. When descaling is necessary, the machine will alert you.

Cleaning and Maintenance - Descale your machine with a professional descaling product every 2-3 months to keep it in good working order. To clean the exterior, wipe with a damp cloth.

Accessories - The Gaggia Espresso Color comes with a detailed instruction manual, portafilter, single shot basket, double shot basket, pod basket, filter, tamper, measuring spoon, and warranty.
