Overview

Back to Top

The Gaggia Classic is one of our best sellers since we began Whole Latte Love in 1997. Over time, Gaggia has added improvements designed to enhance the user experience while staying true to their commitment to produce espresso equipment that is on par with the best in the industry.

New to 2003 Gaggia has replaced the nickel plated carbon steel housing with brushed stainless steel. This produced a machine with an even more durable housing that will not rust or flake overtime. The portafilter handle was also upgraded to include a stainless steel dispensing beak. This improved consistency of the espresso flow when split between 2 demitasse cups or shot glasses. The main design of the portafilter remained the same at a whopping 1 pound of chrome plated brass with a commercial size, 58mm diameter. Gaggia also uses a massive chrome plated brass brew group, which is where the portafilter handle locks onto. Heat stability and retention is remarkable with this much mass, and is a Gaggia standard that only the Rancilio Silvia can match. All Gaggia espresso machines received a new Pannarello style frother to replace what was known as the Turbo Frother. This wand has proved to be both easier to use, and clean. Our testing showed that it is less finicky and requires less technique to produce frothed milk quickly, and of good quality. Also new is that Gaggia has finally dumped the pod adapter and replaced it with a stainless steel combination single shot/pod basket. For those that know, the old pod adapter was a true contraption; it was difficult to attach and too much effort to remove if you wanted to use ground coffee as well. The new pod basket was designed with the approval of Illy, who has been a founding member of the ESE (easy serving espresso) consortium. Our internal tests, and those of Illy USA, performed by both East and West Coast divisions has backed up this claim as well. With this approval all Gaggia machines can use espresso pods from any roaster that is ESE approved - the largest standard in the coffee industry.

The overall wattage of all Gaggia machines stay at an industry high 1425 watts. The electric pump accounts for 55 watts and is the strongest in it’s class. The remaining wattage is directed to Gaggia’s unique boiler system that incorporates not 1 but 2 heating elements. Unlike every other manufacturer at this price range, Gaggia does not position them in direct contact with water. They are actually embedded into the sides of the boiler which prevents a major reason espresso machines are brought in for warranty repair - corroded heating element. This design has proved to be highly efficient by causing the entire boiler to become a heating element. A fast method that further supports temperature stability.

The Classic further distinguishes itself by sporting a 3 way solenoid valve. This is a feature generally only found on commercial and prosumer equipment. It’s main purpose is to relieve the pressure that develops during the brewing process. As you may have read, espresso is brewed best at 8 to 9 bar or atmospheres of pressure. With a single bar being 14.7 lbs of pressure per square inch you can calculate that espresso is brewed at 132 lbs per square inch. The 3 way solenoid valve instantly relieves that pressure and diverts it to the drip tray. You may notice the chrome tube leading to the drip tray in the larger image. The benefit of this is that the quick release of the pressure takes much of the water left over in the group and leaves a relatively dry coffee puck. Drier puck means less coffee grounds to clean.

We recommend that you consider a quality burr grinder capable of producing a commercial grind like the Baratza Maestro Plus or Gaggia MDF for best results. Includes two Commercial grade quality stainless steel filter baskets (single/pod and double shot), coffee tamper and 7g measuring scoop. Available in Brushed Stainless Steel (Satin Finish).

Features & Benefits: Coffee

Commercial Size and Style Portafilter Handle

Some of the most crucial elements for producing high quality espresso are influenced by the Style, Size and Construction of the portafilter. Style: This portafilter is designed like a commercial machine and works in the same way. The coffee is ground fine and is tamped (pressed) firmly into place. Size: The size of the portafilter is also the same as a commercial machine. Is has a large diameter (58 mm) so that the water is distributed evenly over a wide surface area. Construction: The portafilter is made up of two parts, the handle and the filter holder. The handle is made of high quality plastic. The heavy chrome plated brass filter holder keeps the temperature stable throughout the entire brewing process, therefore producing a quality cup of espresso.

Commercial Brewing Group

This is the portion of the machine that the portafilter locks into. It is made of chrome plated marine brass which provides a superior brewing environment through maximum heat stability and component longevity.

Boiler

The Gaggia boiler system is very unique. It is designed of highly conductive aluminum with two heating elements. The heating elements are embedded into the exterior sides of the boiler, providing even heat distribution. Having the highest wattage system available, incorporated into a low volume boiler (3.5 ounces) provides excellent temperature stability and will heat up quicker.

3 Way Solenoid Valve

The three-way solenoid valve is a commercial feature that relieves the water pressure off the coffee when the brew switch is turned off. This serves two functions; it dries out the coffee to prevent dripping and makes it easy to knock the coffee out of the portafilter with one knock.

High Quality Controls with Temperature Ready Light

The Classic contains three rocker arm switches. The one on the left is the main power switch. It has an indicator light built into it that is illuminated whenever the machine is turned on. The middle switch is the steam switch. When turned on it will heat the boiler up to steam temperature. The far right switch operates the pump and is also known as the brew switch. To start the brewing process just turn on the brew switch, wait until you have reached your desired volume and then turn off the switch. There is an indicator light built in that is illuminated whenever the boiler reaches operating temperature.

Cup Warmer

Preheating your cups is very important. The Classic has a cup warmer that will hold up to five espresso cups. It is a passive type heater which means it is heated with the residual heat from the boiler.

Features & Benefits: Frothing and Hot Water

Hot Water Dispenser

If you want hot water for any reason, be it Hot Chocolate, Tea or Americanos it is very easy to do. Just turn on the pump (brew) switch and open the steam knob. Hot water will start to stream out.

Improved Pannarello Steam Wand

The Gaggia Classic comes equipped with a new Pannarello steam wand. The new design makes great froth every time with no problems.

Features & Benefits: Care, Maintenance & Other

Water Reservoir

The large removable 64oz reservoir can be refilled from the top any time during the operation, for an endless supply of coffee.

ESE Pod Capable

Comes ready to use with pods or ground coffee. Use the single shot filter basket with Easy Serve Espresso (ESE) pods. Pods are single serve prepackaged shots that are designed to be quick and clean.

Thermostat and Safety Switches

The Gaggia has three temperature controls. There are two thermostats and one high limit. There is one thermostat for maintaining brew temperature and one for maintaining steam temperature. The high limit will turn off the power to the boiler in the event of a malfunction thus preventing the boiler from overheating.

Housing Construction

The Classic is made of stainless steel for extreme durability and a professional appearance. The drip tray is chrome plated while the drip grate and pan are made of a durable plastic.

Hi Guys, Does Gaggia Classic come with a tamper or do I have to buy it separately? And if so can you please advise what's the best tamper in terms of value/cost. Thanks,Pawel
Erik aswered:
This machine does come with a plastic tamper but I would recommend upgrading it to something more substantial.  If you are looking for the best tamper as far as value/cost is concerned it would be the Rattleware Tamper.  You will need a 58 mm tamper and it can be found at the link... more

Double spout separable?

Is the Double spout separable from the filter handle? Looks like it should unscrew for making one cup. Can't unscrew it 
Louis-Jordan aswered:
Thank you for your question. Yes, this spout is unscrewable, and can actually be switched out for a single spout. The spout is pretty firmly attached when you receive the portafilter from the manufacturer, so you might need to secure the portafilter with a c-clamp and use a wrench to unscrew it.... more
DanielCulver aswered:
The reason they are hard to unscrew is because Gaggia uses Loc-Tight or similiar product so that the double spout remains in a fixed position. Beside the method listed above, I prefer to find the closest fitting phillips (or similiar) screw drive that will pass thru the center diffuser hole (the... more

Gaggia Classic - cant get a good shot

I've owned this machine for over three years, and I cant get a consistently good shot. -I have thoroughly cleaned and descaled the machine carefully following instructions. -I am using a Rancillio rocky grinder, which has clean burrs and seems to work perfectly. -For a double shot I...
daniel948 aswered:
I had similar issues with my Gaggia Classic and it all got down to bad grinders. I had a Baratza Preciso, purchased directly from the manufacturer (refurb) and I was seeing the exact same thing. My double shoots (18 grams) were running fast in about 13 seconds. If I went to almost 0-2 setting... more
john aswered:
Thanks so much Daniel- this is what I've suspected even though its been a constant problem with my Rancillo Rocky- I'll look into getting the grinder refurbished/replaced and take it from there. Good to know the machine is capable of pulling great shots.

descaling solution

how much should I dilute the descaling solution?
Sanfam aswered:
With any descaling solution, always dilute it as per the manufacturers' instructions.  These vary from one brand to another, but are typically found on the packaging.

Descaling

how much should I dilute the descaler
Sanfam aswered:
Unfortunately, the amount of dillution varies from one product to another.  Rather than worry about it from the perspective of the machine, try to find the suggested dillution from the manufacturer's packaging for the descaling solution you are trying to use.

Voltage

Hello, do you have this model or another gaggia machine that it works with a 220V? I'm from Chile and I'm very interested in this model or somthing similar, but I have de voltage compatibility problem (here we use 220V). I really appreciate any suggestion. Thanks!
Sanfam aswered:
At this time, we only have these machines available in US-friendly configurations; That is to say, 110V at 60hz, with a standard US AC plug on the cord.

Shots pulling SLOW!

Hello, we have a Gaggia Clasic that we have been using for about 13 months.  Here within the last month it seems to pressure to make the shots has decreased dramatically to the point where it barely drips out.  We had not changed the grind or anything when this started so when it started pulling...

Most likely you are experiencing the symptoms of advanced scale buildup. If you haven't descaled this machine in the past 6-8 weeks, then that is the first step. It is important to use a proper descaling solution. I personally prefer... more

Hello, Is there a possibility to place a water filter in the gaggia classic's water reservoir.  Thank You Nandor
Maggie aswered:
Nandor, thank you for your post.  We unfortunately do not have a water filter that will work with the Gaggia Classic.

Low pressure on Gaggia Classic?

Hi, for some strange reason, It seems that my Gaggia Classic suddendly lost pressure... I poured a shot early morning and everything went right. I tried to pour another shot a couple of hours ago and suddendly pressure was much lower. Grinding in the second shot was actually a little coarser (I...
DanielCulver aswered:
First impression, without more information, is that your grind was more than a little coarser; perhaps much courser. Go back to original grind for comparision. This machine is usually VERY reliable so first place to look for solutions is changes in your bahavior (no criticism intended). If the... more
Antonino Tumeo aswered:
Thanks for the suggestions, looks like you figured it out correctly. It looks like that I somehow did something wrong (not sure what, the shot where I experienced low pressure was, paradoxically, with the "safe settings", where I returned after the early morning shot with finer grinding - not... more
DanielCulver aswered:
Antonino, that is the glory of making your own espresso. Just when you have it handled, you can totally blow it, with just one small change. This may sound a bit arrogant but I have found a solution that works for me. I own several machines, all Gaggia. Two Achille manuals and a Classic. I use... more

Gaggia Classic tamp pressure?

The Gaggia instructions state 30lbs tamp for the pressurized basket but only light tamp for the unpressurized basket.  Do you agree with that technique?
ShaneAncefsky-Sales aswered:
Hello Jerry, You would want to tamp with 30lbs of pressure with either basket.With the unpressurized basket is the basket the tamp pressure will make the most difference.  As with that basket you're using the coffee as the resistance to the pump.
Jerry aswered:
Thanks!

Descaling product for Classic

On your web site you recommend Cleancaf for descaling the Classic. You even have a video that uses Cleancaf on the Classic. Yet in the product description for Cleancaf, your web site says NOT to use Cleancaf on aluminum boilers. But the Classic does have an aluminum boiler. In that case, it seems...
DanielCulver aswered:
Not answering your question directly, but I have been using the Durgol Swiss Espresso descaler very successfully in my wife's Gaggia Classic. It cleans quickly and rinses out easily. Absolutely no after taste. I clean the shower separately with a painters brush and mild detergent using light... more
Sanfam aswered:
At some point within the last year, Urnex reformulated Cleancaf in such a way as to not make it entirely suitable for machines like the Classic.  I second Daniel's suggestion fo Durgol Swiss Espresso Descaler, as it's designed explicitly for this type of use and is aluminum safe.
Thomas aswered:
Thanks for the responses. Urnex also makes Dezcal. Is that OK for the Classic?

ai have a gaggia classic that when making expresso just as much water comes through the frothing wand as the portofilther,what is my problem,and how do i fix it.
DanielCulver aswered:
First, it sounds like a valve problem, in that the valve isn't completely cycling. If you haven't cleaned your machine in awhile that is the first thing to do. Order this: http://www.wholelattelove.com/Durgol/durgol_swiss_espresso.cfm . If cleaning doesn't restore your machine call the... more

Question by Jose G.

How much would it cost me to buy the Classic with the Silvia wand installed.
Maggie aswered:
I do apologize, that is not a modification we are able to do. It is something that the consumer can do after the fact, but please be aware that that sort of modification will violate the warranty on the machine.

Question by Jose G.

Is the Classic you sell, made in Italy? Thks
DanielCulver aswered:
I believe they are made in Estonia right now of Italian design. It is a very nice machine, I have one. They are reliable, easy to use, and easy to clean. It performs as well as my Achilles just a whole lot faster.

Question by Thomas R.

Do you recommend backflushing for the Classic? If so, what filter basket to use for this?
techkathy aswered:
Thomas - We do not recommend backflushing the Gaggia Classic. The small solenoid can be damaged. Regular descaling of the unit will keep the solenoid valve clean.
Thomas aswered:
Kathy -- Thanks for your quick answer. All the veterans on user groups for the Classic seem convinced that backflushing (frequently with water and occasionally with detergent) is necessary for good maintenance and to prevent bad performance. So it's interesting -- and for a new user, very... more
DanielCulver aswered:
Thomas, my wife has this machine and I find that a simple flush with the Durgol Swiss Espresso Descaler works very well. What some people are seeing as a need for frequent back flushing is that the shower screen is getting dirty. On this machine, when you are finished brewing and steaming, you... more

Coffee Holder Very Wet After Making Coffee

Our Gaggia is about 1 year old.   After making the coffee, the coffee holder is extremely moist and still has water in it. Before, it was relatively dry.  Also, the ready indicator oftens goes off after it is on. I am wondering if the water is not getting hot enough or the pressure is not strong...
techkathy aswered:
Have you descaled the machien recently?  Give the group head a good cleaning and descale.  This should help clear up the solenoid valve.     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2oGwJuJ65Dk   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSXC3zuHbNU
DT aswered:
I did give the group head a cleaning but it did not help. I guess the next step is to give it a good descaling. I will proivde an update on how goes after the descaling.

Slow Espresso Brewing with ESE Pods

I have had a Gaggia Classic for about 3 months.  When I brew an espresso with ESE pods it takes more than a minute to make a single shot.  I tried brewing without a pod in the filter and it takes less than 10 secondsl to make a shot.  Any suggestions on how to speed up the process?  By thie time...

Thank you for your question. It sounds like your pressurized filter might be blocked. There are a couple of ways to clean it. You can soak it in some descaler and hot water for half an hour. You can also drop the basket in a pot of boiling water. You can also take a needle or a pin and poke the... more
