Expert Answers From The Whole Latte Love Spot

Q: After watching your video, I bought the Gaggia Brera as my first super automatic. How did you get that incredible crema in the demo? What settings? Which beans? Please help me get to my "A-Game" with my new machine. Thanks, Steve S.

A: To get the best crema from the Gaggia Brera, I go for the finest grind setting. Push the coffee button; while the grinder is running, press down on the adjustment knob and turn it to the finest grind setting. Also, make sure the three beans are showing on the LED display, so you know you are grinding the most amount of coffee per shot. Next, make sure you have good, fresh beans. The Whole Latte Love Malabar Gold makes a great crema and also has a very nice flavor.
