Does it have a single serve option? How many oz. of espresso does it put out?

A A Cheryl,

The Evolution does come with single shot and double shot filter baskets. It does not have a preset shot length though, so you can control how much water extracts through the coffee for each shot you pull.

Espresso sputters out of the spouts, rather than flowing nicely into the cups below. Most of the espresso does land in the cups, but the sputtering makes a mess on either side of the machine. How do I stop this from happening?

mjackson ♦ Luke,
It could be two things. You are using the wrong baskets with or with the pin if you have the pressurized baskets, or if your machine is older it may be time to change your gasket. You can lean more here- http://www.wholelattelove.com/videos.cfm?playvidID=345

I hope this helps and call us with any questions.

mjackson ♦ Andreas,

It could be you did not clear out the old gasket properly or get it completely out. You may also have put the new gasket in incorrectly. You may have perhaps damaged your screen. Give our technical department a call and they will be able to help you.

What is the housing that come in contact with coffee made of including the water reservoir? In case it is plastic, are all the plastic parts that come in contact with water/coffee BPA free?
Thank you

Hi,

I noticed that one of the tubes that sucks water from the reservoir is no longer clean at the end of the tube. Instead, it's a milky white hue.

Is this a problem?

How do I clean the tubes?

Thanks!
Brett

mjackson ♦ Brett,

This is common and you may want to try descaling it. You can also try using some sort of soft pipe cleaner. It should help. It is not really a problem but could be signs of future problems with scale build up.

Which is a better machine, the Gaggia Evolution or the DeLonghi EC702?

mjackson ♦ Jennifer,

Tough question as they are both good machines for the money. I do like the Gaggia better, probably as I am more used to using a Gaggia.

Hi,

I just purchased the Gaggia Evolution and have a few newbie questions.

1) how much ground coffee does the accompanying coffee scoop hold? Is it one tablespoon?

2) does it matter what order I make a cappuccino? In other words, does it matter if I pull a shot first and then froth milk or vice versa?

3) is there a preferred grind number i.e. 3.5 grind, 4.0 grind that works best with this Gaggia?

Grazie!
Brett

mjackson ♦ Brett,

Congratulations on your new machine. To answer your questions.

The scoop holds 7 grams

Most people make the shot first, but it is up to you.

If you have the Gaggia MDF the grind usually will work best at 4-6

Good luck and lets us know if you have any questions.

I´m trying to decide bwtween an Espresso Pure and the Evolution. For now I have a little bit more "votes" for the Evolution .
My only concern would be the boiler capacity, since the Gaggia Pure is 9 oz and the Evolution is only 3.5 oz.
I pretend to make 2-3 capuccinos w/every brew, I don't know if the remaining water in the boiler after the brew will be enough to froth milk for the capuccinos. I´m not sure if these low-end machines have a water refill system in the boiler (I don't think so).

Mike Russo ♦ David...Thank you for your interest in the Gaggia line of espresso machines. The Gaggia engineers have designed the Pure and Evolution to work with two different size boilers. The Pure as you stated uses a 9 oz. boiler with one 1100 watt internal element. While the Evolution has a 3.5 oz boiler it uses twin external elements for a combined wattage of 1370 watts. Thanks.

mjackson ♦ The best way to tell if it is a gasket if is it is leaking over the portafilter when you are brewing a shot. If so then you should order a gasket from us. We do have instructions on how to change the gasket.

I have a baby gaggia and it just quit after 5+ years. I make 1 to 2 coffees a day. Is the evolution a good machine for me or should I get the new baby gaggia?

Zack Smith Helen, The Evolution is a great machine. But then again so is the New Baby. The big difference between the two aside from looks is the fact the the New Baby has the 3 way solenoid valve. This helps fry out the puck after you brew and relieves the pressure off the system.
