Gaggia Brera Overview

The Gaggia Brera is a compact Italian made espresso machine with authentic stainless steel accenting. Designed with convenience in mind, the Brera has just two buttons for espresso and long coffee and features an adaptive system that optimizes grinding times for your coffee. For café favorites like cappuccinos and lattes, the pannarello steam wand flattens the learning curve for rich airy milk foam.

Features and Performance

Capable and compact, the Brera delivers on performance and value. At just 10” wide and 12.4” tall, you’ll have no problem fitting this machine in your kitchen. When brewing, coffee is ground fresh using a 5 setting ceramic burr grinder, and you can tailor your desired strength to one of 3 settings. Based on your grind and strength, the Brera will automatically adjust its grind cycle to optimize the coffee dose for your extraction, becoming more accurate with each shot. You can also load pre-ground coffee directly into the group via the bypass doser.

Specialty milk drinks can be easily prepared with the pannarello steam wand. By positioning the selector switch to the left, the Brera will produce steam, allowing you to froth milk. The design of the pannarello wand produces rich milk foam with minimal technique required for the perfect homemade cappuccino. You can also produce hot water for drinks like Americanos, tea, and cocoa by positioning the selector switch to the right.

Capacity wise, the Brera has a 40 oz water reservoir, 8.8oz bean hopper, and can hold up to 9 spent pucks of coffee. The drip tray holds up to 28 oz of water, and the brew spouts can fit cups up to 4.5” tall which is enough clearance for a standard American coffee mug. Maintenance alerts will also keep you informed when you need to refill the water reservoir, add more beans, empty the dreg drawer, or descale.

Why You Should Get It

The Gaggia Brera delivers simple and authentic Italian espresso in a stylish package. Coffee is ground fresh with ceramic burrs while the Brera learns to pull a better shot with each espresso you brew. Lastly, the intuitive interface and simplified milk frothing are welcoming to home baristas of any skill level. Anybody short on space or on funds will find that the Brera fits their needs perfectly.

What's in the Box

  • 1x Tube of Brew Group Lubricant
  • Bypass Doser Measuring Scoop
  • Gaggia Adapting System

    Designed by Italian engineers, the Gaggia Adapting System uses algorithmic learning to self-adjust grinding time based on your strength setting and your coffee. There’s no guesswork to great espresso; the Brera will automatically adapt to optimal dosing for your coffee.

  • Intuitive Interface

    A simple icon-based display makes the Brera easy to understand and operate. There are dedicated buttons for espresso and a long coffee as well as a power button and coffee strength selector. Drink volume can be customized by simply pushing and holding the brew button you want to program and you can brew a double by pressing the button twice.

  • Cappuccinos and Lattes

    Using the pannarello steam wand, you can easily froth milk for creamy cappuccinos and decadent lattes. Simply turn the selector switch to the left to switch the Brera into steam mode. The Brera can also dispense hot water through the steam wand by turning the switch to the right.

    gridimage-3
  • Stainless Steel Accents

    The Brera’s iconic look can be attributed to the use of stainless steel accenting on its front panels. Compared to plastic, the brushed steel imparts tangible quality onto the Brera’s design and a timelessness to its aesthetic.
