When you see the words “Gaggia Titanium,” you know you can expect the best. The Gaggia Titanium Plus stays true to its name, featuring 2 boilers so there’s no downtime between brewing and steaming, a blue LCD display, temperature control, stainless steel front panel, an automatic frothing attachment, and much more. The Titanium Plus also adds a new spin to the traditional Gaggia Titanium design with the addition of the E. Plus system: an easy-to-use knob that you can turn any time during the brewing process to change the strength of your espresso.
The Gaggia Titanium Plus is a perfect machine for not just daily use, but entertaining as well. An active cup warmer will keep up to 6 demitasse cups warm, while the stainless steel-lined brew boiler and separate boiler for steam will ensure that you can make cappuccinos, lattes, and other coffee house drinks back-to-back for your guests. The included stainless steel Turbo Frother lets you manually froth or steam milk, and the Titanium Plus also comes with Gaggia’s patented automatic frothing attachment to make it even easier. If your guests prefer decaf, or a type of coffee other than the one in your bean hopper, the Titanium Plus also features a bypass doser. And, since the coffee spout is adjustable, you can brew into a variety of cup sizes with ease. A removable brew group, dump box, drip tray, and 60 oz water reservoir make cleaning up after large gatherings a simple and fast process. Take all of these outstanding features and house them in durable steel housing, and you have a wonderful addition to any kitchen.

Features & Benefits: Coffee
Automatic Coffee Center
The Gaggia Titanium Plus has everything you need to make virtually any café-style drink in moments. Simple brewing controls and 2 different options for steaming and frothing milk put every type of drink right at your fingertips. Lattes, cappuccinos, crema coffee, even hot water for tea and hot chocolate are just a few buttons away.
Push Button Technology
Perhaps the best thing about the Gaggia Titanium Plus is its ease-of-use. With programmable brewing buttons and complete control over every aspect of your espresso, you can create consistent espresso shots, morning after morning, set to your desired taste. Once programmed, all you have to do is press a button and the Titanium Plus does the rest: grinding, tamping, and brewing right into your waiting cup.
E. Plus System
To give you complete control over your espresso, the Gaggia Titanium Plus features the E. Plus system. This dial located on the front of the machine can be turned at any time to increase or decrease the water flow rate, or strength of your espresso- even while brewing. Turn it to the counterclockwise to decrease the strength, and turn it clockwise to increase the strength.
Some super automatic machines can only notify you when to perform maintenance or if the brew group or dump box is out of place through a series of blinking lights. If you prefer reading what maintenance needs to be performed in the language of your choice (English, Italian, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, or Dutch), the Titanium Plus features a cool blue LCD display. It will notify you when you need to fill the bean hopper, water reservoir, or perform a cleaning or descaling cycle. It also makes programming all of the machines functions a straightforward process, so you can fully customize your espresso.
With many espresso machines, you have to wait for the boiler to reach proper steaming temperature when going from brewing to steaming. The result? Lost temperature of your espresso shot and more time that youre stuck in the kitchen when entertaining guests. The Gaggia Titanium Plus helps eliminate this down time with 2 separate boilers: a stainless steel-lined brewing boiler and a Rapid Steam boiler just for frothing and steaming milk. Without excess heat up and cool down time between frothing and brewing, youll be serving up delicious drinks in no time.
Adjustable Beverage Volume
The Gaggia Titanium Plus comes with 3 pre-programmed buttons for espresso, a normal coffee, and a caffe lungo. To change these settings to meet your tastes, programming is easy. Simply place a cup underneath the coffee dispenser, press, and hold the button that you want to program. The message Progr. Quantity will appear, and just hold the beverage button until the desired amount of coffee is dispensed into your cup, then release.
Adjustable Coffee Dosing
You can set the amount of coffee used to brew your espresso using the adjustable dosing feature. This is controlled by a knob in the bean hopper and lets you set your coffee dose to anywhere between 6 and 9 grams of coffee per shot.
Adjustable Temperature Control
Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to the temperature of their coffee. Thats why the Gaggia Titanium Plus comes with 5 different temperature settings: minimum, low, medium, high, and maximum. To change this setting, just enter the programming mode and use the arrow keys to navigate to the temperature setting of your choice.
Espresso tastes best when the coffee grounds have been slightly moistened before brewing. It brings out the aromatic oils of the beans, ensuring you get the most flavorful espresso possible. You can turn this 2-second pre-infusion feature on or off on the Titanium Plus, and even set it to be a bit longer if you want.
The Titanium Plus is all about meeting your needs and those you entertain, so a bypass doser is one of its key features. This easy-to-use coffee chute lets you brew using pre-ground coffee instead of the whole beans in your hopper. This is great for evening espressos when you want decaf, or if you just want to try a type of coffee other than whats in your hopper.
Professional-grade Conical Burr Grinder
High quality espresso comes from a fine, consistent grind. The professional-grade conical burr grinder in the Gaggia Titanium Plus has 18 different fineness settings, so you can find the perfect setting to meet your needs. The grind setting can be changed by simply turning the knob inside the 8.5 oz bean hopper.
Active Cup Warmer
The secret to great tasting espresso is preheating your brewing components, and its important not to forget about those cups. Keep your espresso hot by brewing right into warm cups with the built-in active cup warmer on the Gaggia Titanium Plus. With enough room for 6 demitasse cups, you can be sure everyone gets a nice, hot cup of espresso.
Features & Benefits: Frothing and Hot Water
With the Titanium Plus, you can dispense hot water for tea, hot cocoa, or instant soups by just choosing the hot water function. Simply press it and turn the steam wand knob on the right side of the machine to have hot water dispensed from the steam wand.
Stainless Steel Turbo Frother & Automatic Frothing Attachment
For complete control over your steamed and frothed milk, the Titanium Plus comes with a Turbo Frother and an automatic frothing attachment. The Turbo Frother is a Panarello-style attachment that helps to evenly distribute steam throughout your pitcher while manually frothing. To make creating cappuccinos and lattes even easier, you can attach the automatic frother to your steam wand and it will pull milk from a pitcher and dispense luscious frothed or steamed milk right into your cup.
Features & Benefits: Care, Maintenance & Other
The water reservoir on the Gaggia Titanium Plus can hold up to 60 oz of water, enough for 30 espressos or 10 cups of coffee before you have to refill. The reservoir can also be easily removed for cleaning and filling.
Removable Brew Group
Its easy to access the brew group of the Titanium Plus. Simply open the front panel and press the thumb release lever on the group. It will slide out easily for routine rinsing, cleaning, and any other needed maintenance, so keeping your machine in top shape is always simple.
Removable Dump Box and Drip Tray
To make cleaning as easy as possible, the Titanium Plus has a removable dump box and drip tray. The digital display will let you know when either needs to be emptied, so you don't have to worry about keeping track of your shot count yourself.
Energy Saving Mode
You can set the machine to go into energy saving mode after a certain period of inactivity in the programming menu. This saves electricity by shutting the boiler down but keeping the controls on for quicker start-up whenever you're ready to brew again.
Cycle Count and Water Hardness
The Gaggia Titanium Plus features a cup counter always keep track of how many shots youve brewed. You can also set your water hardness in the programming menu, so after a certain amount of cups brewed, the machine will notify you to perform a descaling cycle.

Hi, I followed your very clear video on removing and replacing the brewunit, however the gears on the machine do not match up with the teeth on the brew unit, I have the unit on neutral and have tricked the machine with the card, however the teeth on the machine do not quite turn far enough...
Answer by Maggie
Andrew, If the machine is not resetting to the neutral point, it would likely need to come in for repair. There may be an issue with the mechanism, the motor itself, or even the switch not tripping correctly. To set that up, please call us at 1-888-411-5282, option 3 for Technical Support, and...
I have a Gaggia Titanium and my brew unit got stuck and I followed your steps to remove it and it works for a bit then when i power off the unit for a day or so the brew unit jams up again, it has done this multiple times. do i need to replace the brew unit. I have about 1100 cups on the machine.
Answer by techkathy
Kenneth - Have you lubricated the brew unit recently? http://www.wholelattelove.com/videos.cfm?playvidID=440 Click on the link. If lubricating the BG does not help I would recommend sending the machine in for a repair. There may be an issue with the small drive motor.
