How to pull a perfect shot with the Gaggia Classic?
With the Gaggia Classic you can pull a perfect shot using freshly ground espresso and adequate tamping pressure, or use the provided crema perfecta. The crema perfecta is a pressurized basket included with your purchase, this pressurizes the porta filter and removes the requirement for tamping or having a perfect grind consistency. Although we always recommend having a good burr grinder the crema perfecta on the Gaggia Classic is a great way to quickly make espresso and coffee.
Gaggia Classic Housing and Warming Tray
The Gaggia Classic espresso machine offers a premium brushed stainless steel housing. In addition to the steel housing the Gaggia Classic also offers a premium stainless steel warming tray at the top of the machine. Warning trays are used on larger commercial machines and designed to pre-heat your espresso cups as to not drop the temperature when pouring into a cold cup.
