The Silver Edition Coffee de Luxe is an espresso and cappuccino machine that shares a similar styling to the perennial Gaggia New Coffee, but offers a lustrous and durable silver metallic coating - a baked on enamel finish like that found on high-end kitchen appliances. The Coffee de Luxe comes identically equipped as the New Coffee but includes the Gaggia pannarello wand an upgraded version of Gaggia’s Auto-frother. The Auto-frother is a unique system that consists of a silicone tube for drawing milk from any container and channeling it through the frother where it is aerated under your direct control. Simply adjust the milk-to-air ratio with a twist of your fingers and it will produce copious amounts of froth very quickly. This device is recommended when you are entertaining due to its extremely fast action and precise control. Otherwise, use the pannarello wand for similar results.
Like all Gaggia semi-automatic espresso machines the Coffee de Luxe comes equipped with two thermostats that automatically regulate the correct temperature of water for brewing coffee and steam temperature for frothing. As with the top-of-the-line Gaggia Classic, it is constructed of heavy duty materials for longevity and forged brass components to stabilize temperature. You can expect to see the 58 mm commercial sized portafilter that no other manufacturer has available in this price class. The highest wattage (1425) system available at any price responds quickly and produces a very dry steam so it doesn’t dilute your milk while steaming. The water reservoir holds over 2 quarts which is more then enough for making espressos, but also plenty if you wish to make hot water. Our performance testing shows that it will make 8 ounces of 170 degree water in 21 seconds. Try this for making a cafe americano (espresso with hot water) as a replacement for drip coffee. You will notice a far superior flavor that will probably spoil your taste for drip coffee - forever, I’m not kidding.
It comes with both the automatic frothing attachment and the new improved turbo frothing wand. Includes two stainless steel filter baskets (single shot/pod and double shot), coffee tamper and 7g measuring scoop. Available in Silver.
