Rapid Steam Technology
This machine is equipped with Rapid Steam technology, which translates to quick heat up times and robust brewing and steaming operations. You’ll be able to steam and brew back-to-back with ease, thanks to the Rapid Steam feature.
Cleaning and Maintenance
The easy-to-maintain Gaggia Brera has a self-rinse cycle that activates when the machine is switched on and off and enters or exits standby mode. This rinse cycle will help to preserve machine performance and keep the unit in brew-ready shape. An icon will appear on the display screen to alert you, should the Brera need to be descaled.

Can you tell me what was originally wrong w/this unit, as to why it req'd refurbishing? Is there any remaining warranty for this product?
My husband & I are beginners in wanting to learn how to make a good latte, cappo & expresso ...would this be a good fit? Our intent is to start out w/automatic and/or semi-auto & get to the point of manually making these drinks ...Is there a better unit than this one (for us to start off on)? Also, w/this being an Italian made product ...do they make any dual voltage machines (I know this may be difficult ...when weighing all the addt'l factors into what makes a great cup of latte, cappo or expresso?
Thank You for your time & assistance.
Unfortunately, the techniques we use to refurbish individual machines make it impossible for us to know the original reason for return. However, rest assured that any refurbished model must pass a strict series of tests before being certified for sale. If it fails any of these tests, it is either subject to a more in-depth diagnostic pass and runs another gauntlet or is recycled.
Regarding your style of thise, this should be fine. While the machine comes with a pannarello wand, it is designed in such a way as to allow you to froth in a more traditional fashion without any additional parts or accessories. As far as other options are concerned, a standalone semi-automatic machine and grinder would be your other best bet as far as getting into the fray; My recommendation would be the Gaggia Classic and Gaggia MDF grinder, as the Classic offers a fairly newbie-friendly pressurized filter basket (that can also be swapped out for the commercial style unpressurized basket as your skill level improves)
As far as voltage is concerned, all models sold within the US market are intended for domestic-use-only. That is to say, they are single-voltage and cannot be easily adapted to other power sources.
I am looking at the refurbished Gaggia Brera Espresso Machine vs the new one. Can you tell me what the warranties are on both the new and the refurbished.
New Gaggia Breras carry a 1 Year Manufacturers's Warranty. Refurbished models carry a 6 month Manufacturer's Warranty.
what the warranty
Refurbished Gaggia Breras feature a 6 month warranty.
I want this product but i am a little bit afraid about the fact that this machine is refurbished. Is there any scratch on it? Is it in sale because someone have tried it and the machine doesn't worked? Is it possible to have all thé informations and a real photo because I come from Canada and before to place my order I want to make sure everything is okay with this machine + garantie?
While a refurbished espresso machine would have enjoyed a previous life in someone else's hands, it would have been recertified as like-new machine. This doesn't mean it's completely free of blemishes (some scuffing and scratching is to be expected), but it will not have an large dings or dents. It will, however, be functionally perfect.
That said, these products are not warrantied to destinations outside of the United States.
Thank you very much for your answer :)
