Features & Benefits: Coffee
Housing and Construction
You’ll see the stainless steel control panel on top of the machine. The left push button, designated by a coffee cup, controls brewing and hot water – it also has an indicator light next to it to show when the machine is at brewing temperature. The center knob has a steam cloud and water droplet icon, and opens the steam valve. The right push button has a steam icon, and heats the machine up to steam temperature – you’ll know it’s reached that temperature when the indicator light next to it illuminates. An on/off button is located at the back of the machine. Thanks to the commercial quality stainless steel boiler, heat up time takes only a little more than five minutes, so you’ll soon be able to start brewing using your chrome-plated brass portafilter.
Choose the appropriate filter basket for brewing a single shot, double shot, or pods, and add your coffee. Insert the chrome-plated brass portafilter into the group head, and press the coffee/hot water button. Coffee will begin dispensing – all you have to do to stop the flow of coffee is press the button again.
Do you prefer pods or ground coffee? Pods are pre-measured, pre-ground, and pre-tamped servings of espresso, so they cut down on any mess. Ground coffee gives you more control over the size of the grounds, tamping pressure, and dosage. Since the Gaggia Espresso Pure is compatible with both, it’s up to you which you prefer.
Crema is the layer of golden marbleized foam that is produced from a properly brewed shot of espresso. It helps seal espresso’s flavors and aromas. Use this filter when brewing single or double shots to achieve a thick layer of crema.
Passive Cup Warmer
The stainless steel boiler does more than heat water for brewing and steaming – it also heats the cup warmer located on top of the machine. Brewing espresso into a warm cup helps preserve its temperature, so you can enjoy your espresso longer. Store your demitasse cups on the cup warmer for a great display and hot espresso.
Features & Benefits: Frothing and Hot Water
Pannarello Frothing Device
If you’re a beginner to frothing and steaming, don’t worry. The Pannarello frothing device is designed to inject hot steam into your milk, so it’s easy to make cappuccinos, lattes, and more. Just press the steam button, and wait for the temperature ready light to illuminate. Once it’s lit, open the steam knob carefully to begin frothing and steaming. Close the knob and press the steam button again to stop the flow of steam.
Hot Water Dispenser
If your house is populated with tea drinkers, the Gaggia Espresso Pure will win them over with its hot water dispenser. As long as the machine is at brewing temperature, you can press the coffee/hot water button and open the steam knob for hot water – perfect for tea, an americano, or hot cocoa. When you have your desired amount of hot water, close the steam knob and press the coffee/hot water button again to stop the flow of steam.
Features & Benefits: Care, Maintenance, and Other
The 42 oz reservoir is located in the back of the machine, so all you need to do is pull it straight up to remove it. Gaggia recommends using purified or bottled water, as it increases the length of time between necessary descaling cycles. When descaling is necessary, check you user manual for simple, step by step instructions on how to proceed.
Keeping the Gaggia Espresso Pure clean is simple – just wipe down the housing when needed with a damp cloth. A water level indicator becomes visible when the drip tray fills, so just empty and clean the drip tray and cover with warm soapy water. Remember to clean the steam wand after using it to foam and steam milk. Wiping it down with a damp cloth and running steam through it will prevent milk residue from building up, keeping your drinks tasting fresh.
The Gaggia Espresso Pure comes with a detailed instruction manual, portafilter, single shot basket, double shot basket, pod basket, filter, tamper, measuring spoon, and warranty.

While they are similar machines, there are a few differences. The biggest ones being the boiler and the brew group. The Evolution has a smaller boiler that is made of aluminium, allowing for faster heat up time and more consistency with temperature. The brew group is also chrome plated brass,...
