Owning the Gaggia Carezza De LUXE

When we first saw the Gaggia Carezza, we forgot what year it was. The retro Italian styling is a blast from the past, belying what we’ve found to be substantial brewing power for its class. A built-in temperature gauge shows a real-time readout of the boiler, which heats up rapidly. In fact, the Carezza De LUXE is ready to brew in within moments of powering on; ideal for anyone on a tight schedule. We think this machine does a lot of things right. Its automated pre-infusion function evenly soaks your coffee to maintain temperature and aid in the extraction of your coffee's flavor profile. The Carezza’s specially designed Crema Perfetta double-walled pressurized portafilter is specifically designed for use with ESE pods and ground coffee, eliminating the need for a grinder. Tamping isn’t necessary either, but our tests found that a light tamp can really improve your shots. 

The Carezza De LUXE blends innovation with ease of use. As a hybrid machine, it brings together the control found in a semi-automatic machine, and some of the convenient elements found in a super. All-in-all, the we find the Carezza to be super easy to master and maintain. Its small footprint, and independence from grinders makes this machine a must have for beginners or baristas on a budget. For added control over your drinks, check out the Gaggia Classic; it allows for both pressurized and commercial-style brewing and steaming.

Crema Perfetta Portafilter

Crema Perfetta Portafilter

The double-walled Crema Perfetta Portafilter takes the guesswork out of brewing consistent, crema rich espresso. You can brew with your choice of ground coffee or ESE (Easy Serving Espresso) pods. Use the single basket for pods and the double basket for ground coffee.

Automatic Pre-Infusion

Automatic Pre-Infusion

Before brewing, your grounds are lightly moistened with an infusion of low pressure water automatically. This helps to guarantee a more even extraction to produce a richer flavor and more persistent crema.

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 easy for beginners, and, in combination with the Carezza's ESE pod capabilities, approachable to all users.

Eco-Mode

Eco-Mode

The Carezza’s impressive features are rounded out by its automatic eco-mode, which powers down the machine after nine minutes of inactivity to conserve energy. Its lightning quick heat up time makes brewing a shot later on easy.
