Since joining Whole Latte Love I’ve had a lot of fun playing around with semi-automatic espresso machines while learning a great deal about brewing espresso. And my coffee journey has also taught me a bit about myself as well. At the end of the day, I really just want to push buttons. This week,...

OverviewBack to Top
With its elegant looks and enviable feature list, the Gaggia Titanium Super-Automatic Espresso Machine outclasses just about every other super automatic available. A sleek stainless steel front panel and steel outer shell house the Titanium’s pride and joy – a stainless steel lined brewing boiler and additional steaming boiler. These boilers create what we call Rapid Steam and eliminate the wait time between brewing and steaming or frothing milk. Add this up with the Titanium’s programmable brewing buttons, the option of using either the stainless steel Gaggia Turbo Frother or the included auto-frother, and an electric blue LCD display, and you have one machine that refuses to be outperformed!
Want to customize that coffee drink? The Titanium makes it a breeze. You can start by programming one of the three brewing buttons to dispense any amount of coffee you’d like. Then take a peek inside the Titanium’s 8.5 oz bean hopper and you’ll find two more control options: a choice between 18 individual grind settings, and another option to use between 6 and 9 grams of coffee for each shot. You can change any of these settings at a whim – a feature that even extends to the type of coffee you’re brewing with. If you’re in the mood for something a little different than the whole bean coffee you keep in the machine, just add some preground coffee to the Titanium’s bypass doser and voila! An instant break from your normal routine.
Rounding out the feature list is the Titanium’s electric blue LCD display. Every time the machine needs more beans or water, or simply needs to be cleaned, a helpful message appears, prompting you to do so. And with its swivel base, the Titanium provides easy access to the 60oz removable reservoir, as well as the dump box, drip tray, and internal brew group for the simplest cleaning and maintenance possible. The LCD display also lets you take a closer look at the Titanium’s menu options. A menu button in the control panel offers one touch access that makes it easy to program auto turn on and shut off, see the number of cups that have been brewed with the machine, set pre-grinding and pre-brewing options, and change the display language among several other options.
Available in silver, the Gaggia Titanium comes complete with a 7 gram coffee scoop, water hardness test strip, and a grinder cleaning brush.

Features & Benefits: Coffee
Automatic Coffee Center
This is more than just an "Espresso Machine!" It is easily capable of making any style of cappuccino or latte. In fact, most of our customers use their Super Automatic espresso machines for "crema coffee" instead of drip coffee. Crema coffee is simply an espresso brewed to fill a regular coffee mug. This produces a much more aromatic and flavorful cup of coffee. As a result of the pressure brewed process (8 to 10 atmospheres of pressure!), the gravity based drip coffee systems simply cannot match. The Gaggia Titanium will also produce hot water for Tea or Steamed Milk for Hot Chocolate!
This technology allows you to instantly go from brewing to steaming and back again without the wait time normally associated with single boiler systems. There is no faster way to make cappuccinos and lattes in your home!
Push Button Technology
It really does not get any easier then this. Just press the brew button and the machine does the rest. It will automatically grind and extract the coffee to your desired taste. When the coffee is finished brewing it will place the coffee grounds into an internal dump box for later disposal (it will even tell you when it is full). Depending on the size of the coffee that you are brewing it will be done in as quick as 35 seconds and ready to brew again.
The LCD display will show you in words what is happening in the machine. It will tell you when to add beans, add water, when to decalcify and even if the brew group is out of place. Use this also for system programming that includes temperature control, language, auto-shut off, pre-infusion, pre-grinding, cup warmer, temperature and cycle count.
Adjustable Beverage Volume
You have total control over the coffee volume (liquid) that is dispensed with three programmable buttons. These buttons come preprogrammed but can be changed easily to suit your needs.
Adjustable Dosing Feature
The Gaggia Titanium has an adjustable doser which controls the amount of ground coffee used for each beverage (6 to 9 grams for a single shot). Combine this ability with the "adjustable volume control" and you have total control over coffee strength and flavor at the push of a button. Drop the drip machine forever!
Adjustable Temperature Control
One special feature of the Titanium is the ability to control the temperature of the coffee. There are 5 different settings for maximum control. The settings are Maximum, Minimum, High, Medium or Low. For those of you that like a very hot cup of coffee select Maximum for the hottest coffee available. Temperature range according to our performance tests show 7 degree delta between the extremes which is very noticeable.
This is another advantage of the Super Automatic coffee center. The first step takes about 2 seconds as it moistens and conditions the ground coffee. Next a 2 second pause allows the aromatic oils to leach from the interior of the coffee. The second step activates the high pressure pump to ensure absolute maximum flavor extraction with a perfect crema topping.
This is used with ground coffee only. Perfect for those occasions when you don't want to be "caffeinated" or have decaf-only guests. This is also useful for experimenting with different types of coffees. If you are naturally a decaf drinker then use the bypass doser for regular instead. This has proven to be a highly sought after feature.
Adjustable Coffee Spout
The dispensing spout slides up or down to adjust for different size cups. It adjusts from small espresso cups up to large mugs with no splashing.
Professional Conical Burr Grinder
The grinder has 18 settings providing plenty of control. You can grind from fine to coarse to accommodate any style of coffee roast. Light, medium or dark, espresso or regular coffee beans.
Preheating your cups is important. The Titanium will hold up to six espresso cups and is actively heated. When the machine is on, the cup warmer will be on.
Features & Benefits: Frothing and Hot Water
Hot Water Dispenser
Hot water is instantly available by turning the steam/hot water control knob. Makes 8 oz for a cup of tea or hot cider in 30 seconds
Stainless Steel Turbo Frother & Automatic Frothing Attachment
The Titanium comes equipped with a new stainles steel Turbo-Frother frothing wand. The new design makes great froth every time with no problems. Also, it comes with an automatic frothing attachment. This attachment will drop pre-frothed milk directly into your cup. No matter which attachment you use frothing is a breeze.
Features & Benefits: Care, Maintenance & Other
The large removable reservoir holds 60 oz of water; enough for 30 espressos or 10 cups of coffee at a time.
Removable Brew Group
The Gaggia brew group is easy to remove. Just open the front panel and remove with the thumb release lever. This gives you access to everything that brews the coffee. Normal maintenance would include a quick rinse and dry.
Holds 8.5 oz of fresh whole bean coffee - about enough for 30 espressos before refilling.
Removable Dump Box and Drip Tray
The dump box is located inside the machine and is easily accessed from the front by sliding out the drip tray. The digital display will indicate when the tray or the dump box need to be emptied.
Energy Saving Mode
Program the energy saving mode to automatically turn on whenever you desire. This will shut the boiler down but keep the controls on and ready.
The swivel base makes accessing the different parts of the machine for maintenance, refilling water reservoir and bean hopper easy. Just rotate the machine, no lifting required!
This feature lets you keep count of how many cups the machine has brewed.

Todd Salzman aswered:There could be there easy to fix problems that cause this. First, there is a small air intake hole on the stainless steel fothing sleeve. It is located about 1/4" blow the top of the sleeve. Locate this hold and clean it out. Second, make sure the center part of the frothing sleeve is pushed... more
Schizoid Man aswered:Sure enough there is a very tiny vent hole I never noticed, and it was plugged up with dry milk residue. Cleaning this out worked like a charm, great tip, thanks very much!!! Note that this is so small that a pointed toothpick or a paper clip were too blunt, I had to use a sewing needle... more
Todd Salzman aswered:There is a float in the reservoir that triggers a switch behind the back panel of the machine. Can you please check to see if it floats? If not go ahead and purchase a new reservoir. If it is floating there is probably something wrong with the sensor inside the machine and it will have to come... more
Louis-Jordan aswered:Thank you for your e-mail. If this happened when using the preground coffee function, it means that too much coffee was dosed into the brew unit. The scoop that comes with the machine for the preground coffee is a little too large if you fill it all the way. You want to use less than a full scoop... more
Steve T aswered:The grinder is surrounded by 3 vertival fins that feed the beans into the grinder and on top of these fins is a cap. I removed the cap and that has greatly improved the beans feeding into the grinder. I no loger have to push the beans in before every grind. However, it has not completely... more

ShaneAncefsky-Sales aswered:Hello Adam, Thank you for the question. I have read through what you are trying to achieve with the timing. I will tell you that with the way the machines are designed the Golden Rule does not apply to super automatics. That is left to a semi-auto, where you have control over the tamp... more
Adam aswered:Thanks for the response, Shane. I'm currently at 4 on the gind, and two clicks away from the highest strength. I'll try out your settings too - appreciate the feedback! Do you get consistent brew times each time? That's the part that confuses me the most, because it leads to inconsistent... more
matthew aswered:When we make coffee water will not stop shooting out of the steam valve. The knob is closed
matthew aswered:sorry that was my question
Sanfam aswered:The spout on this machine should stick in the fully raised position if it's working correctly-if it's falling down on its own, something wrong with the part and it may require replacement. If this is happening within the first month, this may very well be a defective part and can be replaced. ... more
Frank aswered:Mine sticks in the up position, but if i want to lower it say half way, it goes all the way down. Mine is also less than a month old. I think i did a easy quick fix, i broke a tooth pick in half, and stuck it on the slide of the inside spout. Now it stops and holds at any position.
Maggie aswered:What temperature is it coming out? Are you dispensing the water into a pre-heated cup? Please call us at 1-888-411-5282, option 3, when you are able to be with the machine, and we will happily go through some troubleshooting steps with you.
Jared aswered:Hi. Thanks for the feedback. It has indeed been in preheated mugs. Weirdest thing though, I just ran the water and it came out at 157 degrees (F). Does that sound like a normal temp? I'll keep an eye on it and use the number you provided. Thanks!
Maggie aswered:Robin, Unfortunately, this particular issue means that the machine would need to come in for repair. Please call technical support at 1-888-411-5282, option 3. so that we can assist you.
Maggie aswered:Shefys, Please contact Technical Support at 1-888-411-5282, option 3, at a time when you are able to be with the machine so that we can troubleshoot it with you.
Maggie aswered:Gregg, A good place to start would be about a 4 or 5 on the numeric grinder setting (the lower the number, the finer the grind), and 2 dots away from the sign. You can get a really good, strong cup of coffee no matter what brand of coffee you use with the right settings. If you need any... more
DanielCulver aswered:Sometimes people equate a really strong serving of espresso with a really bitter serving. It is possible the Gaggia is making a better brew of the beans you have. If you switched brands of beans at the same time as the machine you will have no baseline measure to work from. To know if it is... more
Erik aswered:Please contact our technical support department at 1-888-411-5282 option 3
Maggie aswered:That sounds like a couple of different issues, all combining to a need for the machine to come in for repair.
