Features: Gaggia Classic Pro Review
Commercial Steam Wand
The commercial steam nozzle provides full control of steam and milk foam and is capable of producing thick microfoam for the art of milk.
With the pressure basket, you get a uniform quality and a thick layer of cream from almost all coffees. Or use the commercial basket with your coffee grinder for quality espresso.
Commercial Style Portafilter
This durable 58 mm chrome-plated brass filter holder has the same dimensions and style as commercial machines in the cafe house.
3-Way Solenoid Valve
The 3-way solenoid valve is typical of commercial machines and relieves the coffee of a dry and easy to remove the disc.
The stainless steel frame has been redesigned for an aerodynamic appearance and better access to the water tank.
Improved Pump Mounts
The upper mounting of the vibration pump reduces the noise generated during brewing. As a result, the Classic Pro makes a similar superb espresso with less noise.
Two heating elements heat the kettle for brewing in about five minutes and the steam standby for 30 seconds.
The Classic Pro control panel has been divided into three switches for power, brewing, and steaming. Every switch has its individual light which indicates when the machine is on, ready for steam preparation and brewing.
