One of the newest additions to the Gaggia family introduces the new sleek lines of the Evolution. The housing may be revolutionary but we can thank Gaggia for not messing with a good thing as they kept the internal components the same. The high wattage dual heating element boiler has about the quickest heat up time in the industry. The 55 watt pump has power to spare, and is mounted on vibration resistant rubber mounts. The reservoir is easy to fill. Slide it to the left and pour the water in. You don’t have to remove it from the machine. Gaggia has been tested and approved for use with the world famous Illy pods. Gaggia’s new Turbo-Frother frothing wand is designed to help you get great froth with minimum fuss. The controls are simple and have all the necessary temperature ready lights. Use this espresso machine to its fullest, and each cup will be creamy, tasty, robust, and rich with flavor. The Evolution includes two stainless steel filter baskets (one and two shot), coffee tamper, and 7g measuring scoop. Available in Black.
Some of the most crucial elements for producing high quality espresso are influenced by the Style, Size and Construction of the portafilter. Style: This portafilter is designed like a commercial machine and works in the same way. The coffee is ground fine and is tamped (pressed) firmly into place. Size: The size of the portafilter is also the same as a commercial machine. Is has a large diameter (58 mm) so that the water is distributed evenly over a wide surface area. Construction: The portafilter is made up of two parts, the handle and the filter holder. The handle is made of high quality plastic. The heavy chrome plated brass filter holder keeps the temperature stable throughout the entire brewing process, therefore producing a quality cup of espresso.
This is the portion of the machine that the portafilter locks into. It is made of chrome plated marine brass, which provides a superior brewing environment through maximum heat stability and component longevity.
The Gaggia boiler system is very unique. It is designed of highly conductive aluminum with two heating elements. The heating elements are imbedded into the exterior sides of the boiler, providing even heat distribution. Having the highest wattage system available, incorporated into a low volume boiler (3.5 ounces) provides excellent temperature stability and will heat up quicker.
The Evolution has three rocker arm switches. The one on the top is the main power switch. The middle one is the steam switch that when turned on, will heat the boiler to steam temperature. The bottom switch operates the pump and is known as the brew switch. To start the brewing process, just turn on the switch, wait until you have reached your desired volume and then turn off the switch. There is an indicator light that is illuminated whenever the boiler is up to operating temperature.
The Evolution has a small, two cup warmer. It is a passive type heater which means it is heated from the residual heat of the boiler.
If you want hot water for any reason, be it Hot Chocolate, Tea or Americanos, it is very easy to do. Just turn on the pump (brew) switch and open the steam knob. Hot water will start to stream out.
The Evolution comes equipped with a new Turbo Frothing steam wand. The new design makes great froth every time with no problems.
The large removable 44oz reservoir can be refilled from the side of the machine.
Comes ready to use with pods or ground coffee. Use the single shot filter basket with Easy Serve Espresso (ESE) pods. Pods are single serve prepackaged shots that are designed to be quick and clean.
The Evolution has three temperature controls. There are two thermostats and one high limit. There is one thermostat for maintaining brewing temperature and one for maintaining steaming temperature. The high limit will turn off the power to the boiler in the event of a malfunction this will prevent the boiler from over heating.
The entire housing is made of a high-impact, heat resistant polycarbonate. The drip grate is made of stainless steel.
