With its elegant looks and enviable feature list, the Gaggia Titanium outclasses just about every other super automatic available. A sleek stainless steel front panel and steel outer shell house the Titanium’s pride and joy – a stainless steel lined brewing boiler and additional steaming boiler. These boilers create what we call Rapid Steam and eliminate the wait time between brewing and steaming or frothing milk. Add this up with the Titanium’s programmable brewing buttons, the stainless steel Gaggia Turbo Frother, and an electric blue LCD display, and you have one machine that refuses to be outperformed!

Want to customize that coffee drink? The Titanium makes it a breeze. You can start by programming one of the three brewing buttons to dispense any amount of coffee you’d like. Then take a peek inside the Titanium’s 8.5 oz bean hopper and you’ll find two more control options: a choice between 18 individual grind settings, and another option to use between 6 and 9 grams of coffee for each shot. You can change any of these settings at a whim – a feature that even extends to the type of coffee you’re brewing with. If you’re in the mood for something a little different than the whole bean coffee you keep in the machine, just add some preground coffee to the Titanium’s bypass doser and voila! An instant break from your normal routine.

Rounding out the feature list is the Titanium’s electric blue LCD display. Every time the machine needs more beans or water, or simply needs to be cleaned, a helpful message appears, prompting you to do so. And with its swivel base, the Titanium provides easy access to the 60oz removable reservoir, as well as the dump box, drip tray, and internal brew group for the simplest cleaning and maintenance possible. The LCD display also lets you take a closer look at the Titanium’s menu options. A menu button in the control panel offers one touch access that makes it easy to program auto turn on and shut off, see the number of cups that have been brewed with the machine, set pre-grinding and pre-brewing options, and change the display language among several other options.

Available in silver, the Gaggia Titanium comes complete with a 7 gram coffee scoop, water hardness test strip, and a grinder cleaning brush.


Features & Benefits: Coffee

Automatic Coffee Center

This is more than just an "Espresso Machine!" It is easily capable of making any style of cappuccino or latte. In fact, most of our customers use their Super Automatic espresso machines for "crema coffee" instead of drip coffee. Crema coffee is simply an espresso brewed to fill a regular coffee mug. This produces a much more aromatic and flavorful cup of coffee. As a result of the pressure brewed process (8 to 10 atmospheres of pressure!), the gravity based drip coffee systems simply cannot match. The Gaggia Titanium will also produce hot water for Tea or Steamed Milk for Hot Chocolate!

Rapid Steam®

This technology allows you to instantly go from brewing to steaming and back again without the wait time normally associated with single boiler systems. There is no faster way to make cappuccinos and lattes in your home!

Push Button Technology

It really does not get any easier then this. Just press the brew button and the machine does the rest. It will automatically grind and extract the coffee to your desired taste. When the coffee is finished brewing it will place the coffee grounds into an internal dump box for later disposal (it will even tell you when it is full). Depending on the size of the coffee that you are brewing it will be done in as quick as 35 seconds and ready to brew again.

LCD Display

The LCD display will show you in words what is happening in the machine. It will tell you when to add beans, add water, when to decalcify and even if the brew group is out of place. Use this also for system programming that includes temperature control, language, auto-shut off, pre-infusion, pre-grinding, cup warmer, temperature and cycle count.

Adjustable Beverage Volume

You have total control over the coffee volume (liquid) that is dispensed with three programmable buttons. These buttons come preprogrammed but can be changed easily to suit your needs.

Adjustable Dosing Feature

The Gaggia Titanium has an adjustable doser which controls the amount of ground coffee used for each beverage (6 to 9 grams for a single shot). Combine this ability with the "adjustable volume control" and you have total control over coffee strength and flavor at the push of a button. Drop the drip machine forever!

Adjustable Temperature Control

One special feature of the Titanium is the ability to control the temperature of the coffee. There are 5 different settings for maximum control. The settings are Maximum, Minimum, High, Medium or Low. For those of you that like a very hot cup of coffee select Maximum for the hottest coffee available. Temperature range according to our performance tests show 7 degree delta between the extremes which is very noticeable.

Coffee Pre-infusion

This is another advantage of the Super Automatic coffee center. The first step takes about 2 seconds as it moistens and conditions the ground coffee. Next a 2 second pause allows the aromatic oils to leach from the interior of the coffee. The second step activates the high pressure pump to ensure absolute maximum flavor extraction with a perfect crema topping.

Bypass Doser

This is used with ground coffee only. Perfect for those occasions when you don't want to be "caffeinated" or have decaf-only guests. This is also useful for experimenting with different types of coffees. If you are naturally a decaf drinker then use the bypass doser for regular instead. This has proven to be a highly sought after feature.

Adjustable Coffee Spout

The dispensing spout slides up or down to adjust for different size cups. It adjusts from small espresso cups up to large mugs with no splashing.

Professional Conical Burr Grinder

The grinder has 18 settings providing plenty of control. You can grind from fine to coarse to accommodate any style of coffee roast. Light, medium or dark, espresso or regular coffee beans.

Cup Warmer

Preheating your cups is important. The Titanium will hold up to six espresso cups and is actively heated. When the machine is on, the cup warmer will be on.

Features & Benefits: Frothing and Hot Water

Hot Water Dispenser

Hot water is instantly available by turning the steam/hot water control knob. Makes 8 oz for a cup of tea or hot cider in 30 seconds

Stainless Steel Turbo Frother & Automatic Frothing Attachment

The Titanium comes equipped with a new stainles steel Turbo-Frother frothing wand. The new design makes great froth every time with no problems. Also, it comes with an automatic frothing attachment. This attachment will drop pre-frothed milk directly into your cup. No matter which attachment you use frothing is a breeze.

Features & Benefits: Care, Maintenance & Other

Water Reservoir

The large removable reservoir holds 60 oz of water; enough for 30 espressos or 10 cups of coffee at a time.

Removable Brew Group

The Gaggia brew group is easy to remove. Just open the front panel and remove with the thumb release lever. This gives you access to everything that brews the coffee. Normal maintenance would include a quick rinse and dry.

Bean Container

Holds 8.5 oz of fresh whole bean coffee - about enough for 30 espressos before refilling.

Removable Dump Box and Drip Tray

The dump box is located inside the machine and is easily accessed from the front by sliding out the drip tray. The digital display will indicate when the tray or the dump box need to be emptied.

Energy Saving Mode

Program the energy saving mode to automatically turn on whenever you desire. This will shut the boiler down but keep the controls on and ready.

Swivel Base

The swivel base makes accessing the different parts of the machine for maintenance, refilling water reservoir and bean hopper easy. Just rotate the machine, no lifting required!

Cycle Count

This feature lets you keep count of how many cups the machine has brewed.

What is the difference in the office version?

Answer by Sanfam:

The only differencee between the Titanium and Titanium Office is the drawer located below it, which is designed to catch water emptied into the drip tray and pucks dumped out after brewing.  Mechanically, the machines are nearly identical and will offer the same level of brew performance.

Considering this model new and refurbished. What are the risk in a refurbished model. Also does the auto steam attachment dispense directly into brewing cups?

Answer by Erik:

The refurbished units do not include the cappucinatore kit and have a 6 month warranty.  The new machines come with the full 2 year warranty

chuck_yul asked:

Hi I live in Montreal Canada,

I was wondering how much to ship to Montreal?

Is there any scratches or dents on the unit?

Does it come with the cappucinattore accessories?

How old is this machine?



Answer by Erik:

Shipping to Montreal can be estimated but first I should inform you that shipping to Canada would void the warranty on this product.  Also, if we do ship this item to Canada there would also be taxes and duties at the border that you would be responsible for and we cannot estimate what that would cost.  This machine is refurbished and does not include the cappucinatore kit.  All refurbished machines are 30 day returns.  If you would like to speak further, please call our sales team at 1-888-411-5282 option 1

Robert asked:

We are interested in the refurbished titanium. We would like to know the approximate age of the refurbished machine.


Rob Ganio

Answer by Louis-Jordan:

Thank you for your question. Refurbished machines through us are going to be either a new machine that had to be repackaged because the boxing was damaged in shipping from the manufacturer, or a machine that has been lightly used and returned within the first 30 days of purchase. We do not completely rebuild old machines for our refurbs. All of refurb units go through an extensive checklist to make sure they are in proper operating order before being made available for purchase.

Bob asked:

is this an equivelant machine to a Gaggia Syncronny?

Answer by ShaneAncefsky-Sales:


Which Syncronny do you have?  If you have the digital they are very close to being the same machine.  So it would be good replacement choice.  If you would like to speak in depth on this.  Please call me at 1-888-411-5282 ext 5198 and I would be glad to go over things with you and help you with your order.

Colin asked:

Hi, What is the warranty policy for this refurbished machine? Also, is this a good choice for somebody new to the higher-end coffee market? In addition to traditional espresso's, and cafe crema's, can this machine just make a traditional cup of coffee?

Answer by Maggie:

The warranty on our refurbished units is 6 months parts and labor.  The Titanium is a great choice-it has three different programmable sizes, tons of different grinder settings, and a secondary boiler for super steaming capability.  It is not, however, designed to do what we think of as a traditional cup of coffee-the closest thing it would be would be an Americano-style, which is a shot of espresso with extra hot water.  

Answer by Blondie:

Hi there just to add to what Maggie says I have used this machine for "a cup of coffee"  which is basically an americano.  In my opinion this is better than anything you can get with a traditional drip machine.  With a drip machine you get the bitterness that comes that traditional cup of coffee.  With espresso the smoothness is just uncomparable - by the way this is a wonderful machine!

Ed asked:

I own a coffee shop in Florida and looking for a coffee maker I can take to different special events and even in a coffee type vehicle. What are your ideas. Thanks Ed

Answer by mjackson:

This is a good question and as many things in the coffee business it depends on what you want to make, how many you want to make, how many in a row and also what size you want to make. I would need to know the answers to these questions before I could give you a proper answer. In my opinion this machine would work best if you want to make small drinks say 8-12 ounces, serve maybe 20-30 at most spread out over a couple of hours. The machine is really intended for home use.It is not made to make a bunch of 16 ounce lattes in a row. It would be ideal to have people sample your coffee as it does make a great cafe crema easily. Please contact me if you have questions or would like some advice on the right machine for your use. I can be reached at extension 5196.
