Brewing

The Gaggia for Illy Plus has a 15-bar pump and stainless steel boiler for quick operation. To brew, simply insert your choice of iperEspresso capsule and press the brew button, located at the top of the machine. A programmable beverage volume button allows you to customize drink sizes. The Gaggia for Illy Plus automatically prepares and dispenses the beverage right into your cup. Spent capsules are discarded into an iperEspresso container, capable of holding up to 12 capsules.

iperEspresso Capsules

Illy’s iperEspresso capsules are pre-measured and packaged for convenient brewing. Illy has created these capsules to yield rich, persistent crema that lasts up to three times longer than comparable capsules and pods. The iperEspresso system is used in some of the world’s most prestigious hotels, restaurants and cafes

Steaming and Frothing

The Gaggia for Illy Plus has a no-burn Pannarello steam wand, capable of creating steamed and frothed milk for cappuccinos and lattes as well as dispensing hot water for teas. The steam wand can be swiveled, allowing it to accommodate different cup sizes.

Water Management

The one-liter water reservoir utilizes a Mavea Water Filter, a four-stage system that purifies and removes tap water impurities for great tasting beverages. The water filtration system also helps to reduce mineral and scale buildup.

Housing and Construction

The Gaggia for Illy Plus has a shiny black body made of ABS plastic. The famous iperEspresso flower is carved into the front panel of the machine. A height adjustable cup holder lets you raise and lower the stand, as needed, to accommodate different cup sizes.
