ROCHESTER, NY — Congratulations to Liutauras B. and Mark P., the winners of Whole Latte Love's #Gaggia30Giveaway contest!
Liutauras and Mark have each won a Gaggia Classic Pro 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Espresso Machine, a unique version of an 100% Italian-made icon with a limited production run of just 3,000 pieces.
Whole Latte Love, in partnership with Gaggia, has obtained 1,188 of the 3,000 pieces produced. We are thrilled to to give away two of these exclusive machines!
Whole Latte Love’s remaining stock of the Gaggia Classic Pro 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Espresso Machine is also available for purchase. Availability is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The mind behind the artwork on the Classic Pro 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Espresso Machine is Italian artist Pierpaolo Gaballo. Gaballo is an illustrator, graphic designer, and artist who sums up his work with the expression “I seek the center,” a concept that suggests a creativity that defies categories or stylistic codes. As shown on the Classic Pro 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Machine, Gaballo prefers black and white drawings as they provide “an absolutely elegant contrast that adapts to any support or scenario” and express “the balance between positive and negative.”
For the Classic Pro 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Espresso Machine, Gaballo developed a design that would effectively symbolize elegance, staying power, and industry pioneering performance of the original Gaggia Classic. Gaballo chose the concept of the Acrobat and the Home Barista, as both are performers who combine preparation with dexterity, practice, and balance. This concept is shown on the housing of the machine, with artistic depictions of the Acrobat and the Home Barista mirroring one another across the sides of the machine’s sleek, stainless steel body. To further authenticate the limited stock of the machine, Gaggia has inscribed each with a unique number (1 to 3,000) to denote order of assembly on the production line.
Internally, this edition of the Classic Pro offers the same reliability, affordability and power that at-home baristas have been enamored with for the past 30 years. Notable features include a rapid heating boiler, 3-way solenoid valve, 58 mm commercial chrome-plated brass portafilter, and stainless steel shower holding plate. Also included is a commercial style steam wand, making the Classic Pro the ideal machine for producing rich, velvety milk foam for latte art.
