Gaggia Classic RI8161 Coffee Machine

Buy the Gaggia Classic RI8161 Coffee Machine from Amazon UKThe Gaggia Classic Coffee Machine is a beautiful-looking coffee maker, stylishly compact and solidly built. And most importantly it makes a great espresso!

This Gaggia can be rightly called a classic because such is its popularity the model has been in production for years. It is a pump espresso machine and has a '3 way solenoid' that gives it the power to deliver coffee in the way a commercial machine does. It also takes the ESE pods and has a cup warmer.

The machine comes with a commercial-sized portafilter. The large size of the portafilter means the water is distributed evenly throughout the coffee - one of the major reasons why the Gaggia Classic is capable of producing great coffee.

As an espresso maker it is easy to use - the controls are straightforward and lights let you know when the temperature is good to go and the milk frothing can be done. The 'turbo frother' is very effective, making sure you achieve a pleasingly frothy cappuccino every time.

Browse customer feedback and time and time again you will see words like 'solid', 'robust', and 'reliable'. Quality commercial components, great design and build all add up to a fantstic little espresso machine.

The Gaggia Classic Coffee Machine comes in two finishes - Brushed Chrome and Ivory. Easily the best espresso machine under £300.
