Gaggia Classic 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Espresso Machine Overview

To mark three decades of an industry icon, Gaggia has crafted a limited edition 30th Anniversary edition of the Classic Pro — a 100% Italian-made, semi-automatic espresso machine consecrated by coffee enthusiasts from all over the world as the pinnacle of at-home Italian espresso making.

To celebrate such a significant landmark, Gaggia enlisted Italian artist Pierpaolo Gaballo to concoct a design that would effectively symbolize the elegance, staying power, and industry pioneering performance of the original Gaggia Classic. With that in mind, 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.

Just 3,000 pieces have been produced, so availability is on a first-come, first-serve basis. 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.

Features and Performance

Aside from the aforementioned limited edition design this version of the Classic Pro has to offer, this machine is still the same reliable, affordable, and compact powerhouse that at-home baristas have been enamored with for the past 30 years.

This iteration of the Classic Pro features 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.

More nuanced features include distinct and weighty rocker switches for power, brew, and steam functionality, as well as improved housing designs like indents in the frame to make it easier to remove the water reservoir. The drip tray has also been streamlined with rounded edges that accentuate the contours of the machine and the decompression duct has received a rubber grip for safer and easier removal.

Internally, the brew boiler features embedded heating elements and is ready to brew in roughly 5 minutes. Switching to steam takes another minute, and a quick flush brings you right back to brew temperature. Brewing on the Classic Pro is even quieter than before thanks to improvements to the pump mounting that reduce noise while operating.

Each Classic Pro ships with a plastic tamper, a single and double shot commercial basket, a pressurized double shot basket, and two-way pin. Out of the box you’ll also be able to brew both pre-ground and freshly ground coffee.

Whether you’re interested in obtaining a piece of history, or are looking for an espresso machine that many consider an industry icon, the list goes on and on as to why the Gaggia Classic Pro 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Espresso Machine is the machine you didn’t know you needed.

The Classic Pro is the spiritual successor to the Gaggia Classic, Gaggia’s signature product and flagship of the “Made in Italy” and “Espresso at home” culture in the world. For the past 30 years, this espresso machine has embodied the values of being an at-home barista: authenticity, creativity, freedom, fantasy. Those who choose this machine will forever own a work of art that mixes Italian quality, tradition, and design with the fascinating art of contemporary illustration.

Additionally, only 3,000 pieces of this limited edition version of the Classic Pro have been produced to further commemorate the occasion.
