Owning the Gaggia Anima XL

The top tier of the Gaggia Anima line is clearly the Anima XL; this super-automatic machine boasts extra large water and bean capacities to bridge the gap between party-of-two and party-of-ten brewing. This is a favorite machine around the office because it’s such a workhorse; cranking out espressos and milk-drink galore. Like the Prestige, the XL’s integrated milk carafe is able to produce a airy cappuccino foam as well as a silky latte milk, and its programmable preinfusion wets the grounds prior to extraction to ensure they’re fully saturated. Plus, just like the rest of the Anima line, the XL’s espresso spouts are high enough to brew into a travel mug; it’s highly programmable, with the option to personalize grind and coffee strength across five settings, and coffee temp across three; and the innovative Gaggia Adapting System, or as we like to call it “the brains behind the brewing operation,” which learns how fast to spin those ceramic burrs and how hard to tamp for the first fifteen or so brews for revolutionary results in the cup. Unlike the others, it’s important to note that the Anima XL does not have a bypass doser for pre-ground coffee brewing.

The Anima XL is as easy to maintain as it is to use, with its intuitive maintenance alerts, water filter compatibility, automated descaling cycle, and, of course, Gaggia’s removable brew group, which can be easily rinsed by hand. The Anima XL is a big time brewing machine, but if you’re looking for something smaller for home, take a look at the standard Anima; also available are: the Deluxe model, which features an integrated cappuccinatore; and the Prestige, which is basically the XL without the trumped up tanks.

Optiaroma One-Touch Brewing System

Optiaroma One-Touch Brewing System

With the Optiaroma system you can select between 6.5 - 11.5 grams of coffee to be ground per brew. There are five strength settings in total and you can program your preferred strength to have the Anima XL brew your perfect espresso with the mere push of a button. Drinks include: an espresso, espresso lungo, cappuccino, latte macchiato and hot water.

Expanded Water and Coffee Capacity

Expanded Water and Coffee Capacity

The Anima XL's water reservoir holds up to 84 oz of water, while the bean hopper has a total capacity of 17.63 oz of whole bean coffee. The water reservoir can also be outfitted with a Mavea Intenza water filter to remove impurities for better tasting drinks and improved longevity of your espresso machine.

Gaggia Adapting System

The grinder can be dialed to one of five fineness settings and uses the Gaggia Adapting System to adjust the grinding process to ensure that the selected quantity of ground coffee is used for your espresso regardless of the blend you're using. Remember, the Gaggia Anima XL does not feature a bypass doser, and therefore cannot brew drinks using pre-ground coffee.

Automated Cleaning and Maintenance

Automated Cleaning and Maintenance

The Gaggia Anima XL has an alert system that will notify you if the dregs drawer or drip tray need to be emptied, if the bean hopper needs to be refilled, or when it’s time to descale. Additionally, the removable brew group and Mavea Intenza water filter compatibility make keeping the XL in tip top shape simple.
