The Gaggia Deco 2-Group Automatic Espresso Machine is equipped with a large, 13-liter stainless-steel boiler with a visible water-level gauge for your convenience.
A Proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller lets you accurately monitor and adjust brew-group temperature, as needed to accommodate different coffee blend and roasts in order to achieve optimal extraction results. The chrome-plated brass brew groups are autonomous and electrically heated, so they can be individually set to different temperatures, if necessary. Each group head is fed by its own dedicated heat exchanger.
The pre-infusion feature is programmable and can be fine-tuned to suit a variety of roasts and blends. The pre-infusion cycle can be turned on or off. The amount of water used per pre-infusion cycle and hesitation time, which relates to how long the grounds are steeped in hot water prior to the start of the brewing cycle, can also be controlled for optimal results. The coffee buttons can be independently set to the desired pre-infusion cycle parameters.
This Gaggia Deco model has two separate water buttons to let you dispense hot water for a tea or Americano. The water-dispensing wand has a built-in mixing valve that eliminates steam output for your safety. The mixing valve can be left on or deactivated, which will let the barista dispense hotter water. The water and steam wands all feature heavy-duty stainless-steel construction. The steam wands both feature four-hole steam tips.
Programmable maintenance alerts will remind the user to backflush and replace the filter for optimal machine performance. Maintenance reminders can be set to run anywhere between 0 and 99,000 brew cycles and are adjustable in 100-cycle increments. The Deco 2-Group also has a programmable water-filter alert that can be set from 0 to 5,000 liters to remind the user when the water filter should be changed.
The Gaggia Deco has two sets of machine programming modes, one is accessible by the barista and the other is available to managers. The barista will be able to program the hot water buttons, clock, auto-on and off settings as well as coffee dosage options. Managers will also have access to these programmable features in addition to the following settings:
In cases where the barista and manager’s settings conflict the machine will automatically defer to the management settings.
