Owning the Gaggia Anima


The Gaggia Anima is tall and thin, with extra-high adjustable milk spouts for those sleepy-eyed mornings when you need a cup with breakfast and a travel mug to go. This super-automatic brews espressos and longos to your exact specifications at the press of a button, while frothing for milk drinks is done manually using the steam wand. Gaggia made steaming simple, too, integrating their patented pannarello wand into the Anima, which automatically aerates the milk for you. Its intuitive programming menu is easy to navigate, and we love how much freedom there is to personalize drinks. You can select your preferred temperature across three settings, and the grind size is adjustable across five settings, coffee strength, too. An integrated bypass doser allows for pre-ground coffee brewing, perfect for guests who prefer their coffee decaffeinated. The Gaggia Adapting System is the brains behind the grinding operation; learning how fast to spin those ceramic burrs and how hard to tamp for the first fifteen or so brews, with revolutionary results in the cup. Given Gaggia’s legacy and rich history, we’re not surprised at the richness of the Anima’s brews, but we are impressed.

The Anima is as easy to maintain as it is to use, with its intuitive maintenance alerts, automated descaling cycle, and, of course, Gaggia’s removable brew group, which can be slid out of place and cleaned by hand. Additionally, you can install a Mavea Intenza water filter in the Anima’s 1.7 L water reservoir to preserve your coffee’s taste and the machine’s longevity. In all, we think the Anima is an aesthetically beautiful machine with a lot of the features we crave in a super-automatic. If you’re a big fan of milk-based drinks and want an auto-frothing version, not to worry! The Anima line features a Deluxe model with an integrated cappuccinatore, a Prestige model with a removable carafe, and even a dual hopper XL version perfect for an entertainer or espresso-loving office.

Optiaroma Brewing System

Optiaroma 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 brew your perfect espresso with the mere push of a button. Drinks available on-demand include: an espresso, espresso lungo, and hot water.

Gaggia Adapting System

Gaggia Adapting System

The grinder can be dialed in across 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. The Anima also features a bypass doser which allows you to fill the brew group directly with pre-ground coffee for decaf.

Pannarello Steam Wand

Pannarello Steam Wand

The Gaggia-patented pannarello wand automatically adds air to your milk through a pinhole at the top of the wand. This makes frothing up cappuccino milk easy for beginners, and latte milk can be steamed, with a little practice, by submerging the pinhole when the desired amount of air has been added.

Automated Cleaning and Maintenance

Automated Cleaning and Maintenance

The Gaggia Anima 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 Anima in tip top shape simple.
