The Gaggia Baby Class combines the traditional styling of the time-tested Baby line, with an updated control panel and chic stainless steel housing. This semi-automatic machine lets you brew using ground espresso, but is also ready to brew using ESE (Easy Serve Espresso) pods for times when you’re on the go. The commercial style brew group and 58mm portafilter are made of chrome-plated brass, for superior temperature stability and durability. Another exciting commercial component on the Baby Class is a three-way solenoid valve to help regulate pressure, a rare feature on home semi-automatics.
For those who love to make café-style drinks, such as cappuccinos, macchiatos, and lattes, the Baby Class has a Turbo Frother attachment to make steaming a breeze. The steam wand is also mounted on a ball joint, so it can accommodate milk pitchers of varying sizes. Maintenance is also straightforward, as the Baby Class has a removable water reservoir and drip tray.
Features & Benefits: Coffee
When you want to brew quality espresso, you want to use the best style of portafilter you can. That’s why the Gaggia Baby Class was designed with a commercial-style portafilter, measuring 58mm and made of chrome-plated brass. Brass offers temperature stability for your espresso, a vital factor in the taste of your final shot. This style of tamper requires a nice, firm tamp for ground espresso, but can also be used with ESE pods for added convenience.
Commercial Brew Group
With a heavy duty, professional quality portafilter, you need a commercial-style brew group to match. The brew group on the Baby Class is also made of chrome-plated brass for added temperature stability. Plus, its brass construction ensures it can stand the test of time.
Three-way Solenoid Valve
No one likes trying to get rid of soupy espresso grounds after they’ve brewed their morning shot. That’s why the Gaggia Baby Class features a three-way solenoid valve that relieves pressure from the portafilter once your shot has been brewed. This results in a drier espresso puck and easier disposal.
The Gaggia Baby Class is controlled by a straightforward panel that features 2 buttons and 2 indicator lights. The top button lets you manually control brewing and the bottom button will bring the machine up to steaming temperature. In the middle are 2 indicator lights: on the left is the On/Off light, and on the right is the steam temperature light. Power is controlled by a switch on the back of the machine.
Espresso temperature is a large factor in espresso flavor. The Gaggia Baby Class has a cup warmer that is passively heated by the boiler, so you can always have warm cups on hand whenever you brew.
Features & Benefits: Frothing and Hot Water
Hot Water Dispenser
If you need hot water for tea, an Americano, or hot chocolate, the Baby Class can dispense hot water right from the steam wand. Simply turn the steam knob and then press the brewing and steaming buttons simultaneously. Once your desired amount of water has been reached, close the steam knob and release the 2 buttons.
The Baby Class makes frothing easy with its black plastic Turbo Frother attachment. This attachment will help you evenly distribute steam throughout your frothing pitcher, letting you make cappuccinos, lattes, and other café-style drinks with ease. To produce steam, just press the steam button and wait for the temperature ready light to illuminate on the control panel. Then, just turn the black knob on top of the machine and steam will be dispensed.
Features & Benefits: Care, Maintenance, & Other
The Gaggia Baby Class features a large, 60 oz water reservoir located on the back of the machine. You can easily fill this in place, but it can also be removed for easy filling and cleaning.
ESE Pod Ready
To make brewing easy, the Baby Class is ready to brew using ESE pods. These pre-package, pre-measured, and pre-tamped pods eliminate the need for a grinder or tamper. Just use the included ESE pod filter basket to brew.
The Gaggia Baby Class was designed with style and function in mind. That’s why it is housed in brushed stainless steel that is both chic and durable. The new exterior design found on the Baby Class will add a professional look and elegant feel to your kitchen.
The Baby Class comes with a detailed instruction manual, coffee scoop, plastic tamper, and single, double, and ESE pod filter baskets.
