Overview

Back to Top

The Gaggia Baby Twin offers an innovative new take on home semi-automatic espresso machine design: two boilers. With one boiler for brewing and a thermoblock for steam, there’s no downtime between brewing and steaming. Entertaining friends, getting through the morning rush at your house, or just making an afternoon latte is quick and easy. Plus, the Gaggia Baby Twin has all of the great features Gaggia is known for, including a commercial-grade portafilter and brew group, three-way solenoid valve, and Turbo Frother attachment.

In addition to the new double boiler system, the Gaggia Baby Twin also has a modern touch ring control panel with green backlit buttons. This exciting new control panel is a great upgrade from traditional switches or plastic buttons, and it features 2 programmable brewing buttons, as well as a manual brewing button. Steam temperature and hot water are also controlled on the touch ring, and a temperature ready light illuminates on the bottom of the ring when the machine is prepared to brew or steam.

Oh, and did I mention it also has stainless steel housing? The Baby Twin is completely housed in brushed stainless steel, so it can match virtually any kitchen, and is extremely durable. The drip tray grate, steam wand, and Turbo Frother attachment are also made of stainless steel, not plastic. An active cup warmer is located on the top of the machine, so you can keep up to 5 espresso cups ready for brewing. The Baby Twin also has a large 60oz water reservoir made of clear ABS plastic, so you can easily monitor your water levels.

Features

Features & Benefits: Coffee

Double Boiler System

When brewing on most home semi-automatic machines that have only 1 boiler, you need to wait between brewing and steaming for the boiler to reach the proper temperature. The Gaggia Baby Twin eliminates this wait with its double boiler system, featuring one boiler for brewing and one for steaming. The brewing boiler quickly heats up, and a thermoblock boiler creates steam for frothing milk for cappuccinos and lattes.

Commercial Size and Style Portafilter

To get the best possible espresso, it’s important to use commercial-grade brewing components. The Gaggia Baby Twin features a commercial size and style portafilter, made of chrome-plated brass for both durability and heat stability. Measuring 58mm, this portafilter also has a durable plastic handle.

Commercial Brew Group

The brew group on the Gaggia Baby Twin is made of the same chrome-plated marine brass as the portafilter, for a commercial feel and long life. It also offers great heat stability, so your espresso stays nice and hot throughout the brewing process.

Touch Ring Control Panel

The Gaggia Baby Twin features a sleek touch ring control panel with green backlit buttons. From left to right, they are small and large programmable brewing buttons, hot water, a steam supply light, manual dispensing/programming, and at the bottom of the ring is the temperature indicator light that will let you know when the Baby Twin is ready to brew or steam.

Programmable Brewing Buttons

We all want something to depend on in the morning. Our alarm clock may fail us and the kids might not get up when we tell them to, but the Gaggia Baby Twin is always ready to dispense consistent espresso shots. On the touch ring, you’ll find 2 programmable brewing buttons that you can set to dispense just the right amount of espresso to meet your tastes. To program the buttons, press and hold the programming button until it begins to flash. Then, press and hold the brewing button you want to program, and release once the desired amount of coffee has been reached. To exit programming mode, press the programming button again and your settings will be saved.

3 Way Solenoid Valve

A 3-way solenoid valve is an important feature on high quality semi-automatic espresso machines. It relieves pressure in the portafilter after brewing, helping to prevent dripping and makes it easy to dispense of the spent coffee puck.

Pre-infusion Cycle

The Gaggia Baby Twin lets you get the most flavor from your espresso with a pre-infusion cycle. This wets the grounds with a splash of water just a few seconds before brewing, and helps to bring out the aromatic oils of the ground coffee. You can also choose to turn this feature off by entering programming mode and pressing the hot water button.

Cup Warmer

Espresso tastes best when it is enjoyed when its hot and freshly brewed. If you brew directly into cold cups, your shots can lose quite a few degrees of heat, and that’s why the Gaggia Baby Twin features an active cup warmer. It is located on the top of the machine and has room for 5 espresso cups.

Features & Benefits: Frothing and Hot Water

Hot Water Dispenser

The Baby Twin can easily dispense hot water for tea, americanos, instant soup, and more. Just place a container underneath the steam wand, press the hot water dispensing button, and turn the black knob on the top of the machine. Once the desired amount of hot water is reached, turn the knob back and press the hot water dispensing button again.

Turbo Frother Wand

Creating luscious foam and steamed milk for cappuccinos and lattes can be a tricky skill to master. The Gaggia Baby Twin has a stainless steel Turbo Frother attachment on the steam wand that makes steaming and frothing milk easy. Similar to a Pannarello attachment, the Turbo Frother helps to evenly distribute steam throughout your pitcher. Plus, the steam wand on the Baby Twin is mounted on a ball joint for a wide range of movement.

Features & Benefits: Care, Maintenance, & Other

Large Water Reservoir

The Gaggia Baby Twin has a 60oz water reservoir made of durable and clear plastic. It can easily be removed for filling or cleaning, and can also be filled in place. Plus, it’s clear design lets you quickly monitor your water level.

Pod Ready

If you prefer to brew with ESE (Easy Serve Espresso) pods rather than ground coffee, the Gaggia Baby Twin is pod ready. Just place the single shot filter basket in the portafilter and the Baby Twin is ready to brew using you favorite coffee pod.

Housing Construction

The Gaggia Baby Twin is housed in brushed stainless steel with a stainless steel Turbo Frother and drip tray grate. The water reservoir is made of clear plastic, as is the steam knob on the top of the machine.

Accessories

The Gaggia Baby Twin comes with double and single/ESE pod filter baskets, tamper, and a 7oz coffee scoop.

Double Boiler

Just for curiosity. Is the steam boiler in series with the brew boiler or in parallel? I.E. Does the steam boiler have a direct connection to the water supply or does the water come through the brew boiler.
Sanfam aswered:
On the baby twin, these are set up in series; On the Baby Twin, water for the steam circuit exits from the top of the boiler where it normally would, and is then directed to the steam boiler and back up through the steam valve into the frothing wand.  Basically, water pre-heated to brew... more

Baby Twin -- steam problems

I have owned my Baby Twin for more than 2 years now. We've had our ups and downs. Once the funny taste went away (took a few months), I mastered the bizarre steaming technique. Detailed in the reviews, you have to turn on the  steamer by turning the knob on the top of the machine, let it spit out...

I've never owned a Baby, but I do have three Gaggias and they all steam very well. Maybe this is a question for Tim Allen. ;-)
Rocky Ron aswered:
I have the exact same problem. The whole steam knob mechanism went kaput after 2 months of use. After being serviced (about $80 in 2-way shipping charges), it still takes several minutes to steam a 1/2 cup milk. By comparison, my nearly dead 8 year old Starbucks machine still can do the same job... more

Gaggia is an Italian company. They do have assembly plants elsewhere in Europe. The sticker on the bottom of the Baby Twin reads "Made in Romania".

Question by Tom W.

I am so ready to buy this machine but for one problem. We like big lattes, and the cups we have are between 3.5 and 4" tall. I don't want to have to make the espresso in one cup or pitcher and then pour it into another cup. The specs on the machine say it only accommodates 3.5" cups (and...
techkathy aswered:
Tom - You can tip a cup and slid it under the coffee spouts. The steam wand is on a ball joint so its easier to fit a taller cup underneath. You can also remove the spouts. They are threaded to the body of the portafilter.
Hal aswered:
I haven't tried it but someone on another web page says he just slides the drip tray out of the machine and has enough height for tall cups. Wonder what happens to the water from the 3-way solenoid?

Question by Miranda M.

Hello, I was wondering how you clean the filter in the water basket. I've tried using a q-tip but it doesn't remove all the build up. Thanks!
techkathy aswered:
You can remove the filter from the water tank. Just pull it out. You can use some soap and water to get it completely clean. Then just push it back into place.
Miranda aswered:
Great, I'll try it out. Maybe I'm just not strong enough?! Thank you for the response.

Question by Ferdinando D.

Is there a way you can test the bar pressure? im just curious since the flow coming out sometimes doesnt seem as strong as it used to be, even if i dont pack the coffee too hard. i just descaled the machine about 2 weeks ago after roughly a years use, also clean the machine regularly run water...
mjackson aswered:
Ferdinando, I would say descale more often perhaps at least 4-5 times a year. I think you may also want to clean the group head more and the three way solenoid as well This should help -http://www.wholelattelove.com/videos.cfm?playvidID=545 Gaggia 3 way solenoid disassembly and cleaning... more
Ferdinando aswered:
Thanks for reply mjackson. i did some trouble shooting and came to the conclusion that it was the pressurized filter basket. i watched the videos on here on how to clean them, and a google search for other tips, but that was my problem. Tho not every little hole is back to perfect the pressure is... more

Question by Kristen P.

Need help deciding between the Pasquini Livetta, Gaggia Baby Twin and Rancilio Silvia (outside choice at this point) . I have had a Gaggia Carezza and Gaggia MDF grinders for about 6 years now. I've been very happy with Gaggia but I am looking for a more consistent expresso. With MDF at 4 and...
A aswered:
Kristen, You make valid points. The Silvia due to it's 12oz boiler does take longer than the Gaggia's or the Pasquini's to warm up. It excels in the sense that it has all commercial grade parts, but are packed into a really small form factor. The Baby Twin and the Livietta both have two... more

Question by Scott E.

I received a Gaggia Baby Twin Machine for Christmas. I have been experimenting with the different basket filters that came with it. It has the Single and Double Pressurized filter basket and a regular Double Shot filter basket. (No Single Shot or Pod Filter. :( ). Anyway, No matter what basket,...
Sanfam aswered:
While a damp or wet puck is to be expected when using the pressurized filter baskets, it is typically symptomatic of either too fine a grind/too much tamping pressure or, alternatively, too coarse a grind/too little tamping pressure. In either case, the puck is dried out when the highly... more

Question by Yang M.

My baby twin's steamer comes on for like 30 seconds and then all the lights started flashing and it seems it stopped producing steam and comes to a halt. Am I the only one with this issue?
techkathy aswered:
Yang, Have you tried descaling the unit? When all the lights flash it means the unit is not passing water through the flow meter quickly enough. Make sure that the water tank is also seated properly.
Yang aswered:
This is brand new unit. I just received it like a week ago. It worked for a day and then the lights issue started happening.
Ferdinando aswered:
Don't know if you solved this issue, but yes this is normal. When the lights start to flash you have to turn the knob back all the way to off, then turn it back on to get the steam. When you first do it, it basically gets all the water out of the wand.
David aswered:
Apparently, they all do that. There is a video on here about it. http://www.wholelattelove.com/videos.cfm?playvidID=724

Question by Ashley K.

I finally purchased a Gaggia Baby Twin, after looking at them for almost a year! The machine is great (great espresso and strong steam pressure). However one of my biggest concerns was reviews stating that "the frothing mechanism has a 'bad smell' which gets infused into the milk when...
techkathy aswered:
Ashley - Any bad flavor or odor from the unit is not typical. If you have a chance, give us a call in tech support. We would like to swap out the unit for a new one.
Patrick aswered:
I had the same issue. Swapped out baby twin once, same issue on 2nd then tech support exchanged for a Gaggia Classic which I am very happy with so far (only had 2 weeks) simple to operate, makes good shots. Though the double boiler would be much faster on the Baby Twin but with the Classic I have... more
Ashley aswered:
Thank you Kathy and Patrick. I just got off the phone with Maggie (WLL tech support), who was extremely helpful. I am going to ship the original machine back and WLL will send me a new one. Ill give the new one a try and fingers crossed steam system will not smell like the old one! I bought... more

Panarello wand frothing

I have been trying to learn how to use the Panarello wand on both my New Baby and Baby twin machines. I get good foam on both with 12oz and 20oz pitchers. I steam the milk first, then pull the shot. However, the foam seems to dry out and float on top. I have tried pulling the shot first and then...
