Entertaining With Coffee

Posted: 12/14/12

Believe it or not, the holidays are just around the corner. This year, why not give your guests a reprieve from the office "coffee" in favor of a rich espresso or decadent cappuccino? 

Gaggia Platinum Swing UpGet into the Swing of Things
The Gaggia Platinum Swing Up espresso machine is the perfect match for those who like to entertain in style. This super automatic sets itself apart with a user-friendly interface; the circular control functions similar to an iPod click wheel! The intuitive programming, aided by a LCD display, makes this machine nearly fool-proof—your guests can even brew their own beverages!

One of the most unique benefits of the Swing Up is the milk island. This is one feature that's made for holiday entertaining. With the Swing Up, you can froth using the steam wand or take advantage of the milk island's steam system to foam and steam up to 13.5 oz of milk at a time! And, thanks to the Rapid Steam System, you and your guests can go from brewing to frothing in seconds—now, that's something worth raising a toast to.
