From Gaggia, comes the Babila; an exceptional super-automatic specialized for customizability and variety. When the Babila was first set up in our lab, there was no matching our excitement. The beautiful, simple-to-use interface disguises a powerful array of drink options that have made it a permanent fixture in our kitchen. Owing its namesake to the famous San Babila church in Milan, the Gaggia Babila is an automatic coffee and espresso machine that produces specialty coffee drinks at the touch of a button.
Designed and manufactured in Italy, the Babila blends timeless Italian aesthetics with Gaggia's 75 years of espresso knowledge to deliver the best of both worlds in bean-to-cup home espresso brewing. Program up to 8 specialty one-touch drinks, ranging from espresso, long coffee, classic cappuccinos, and trendy flat whites. Each drink can be customized with your preferred strength, volume, temperature, and taste. Milk beverages are prepared instantly at the push of a button thanks to the hygienic frothing carafe and dual boilers.
For barista quality milk suitable for pouring latte art, the manual steaming wand offers precise control over both texture and temperature. The steam wand can also be used to dispense hot water for tea and cocoa. Further refinement of your coffee is offered by the flow restrictor dial between brew spouts. To brew with even taller cups, the brew spouts can be removed for over 6" of clearance. Coffee is ground fresh for each drink by a pair of durable ceramic burrs, adjustable with 15 unique grind settings.The bypass doser allows you to fill the brew unit directly with pre-ground coffee, perfect for brewing decaf in a pinch. The ample water reservoir holds up to 50.7oz and the bean hopper holds 10.58oz. You can prepare up to 11 drinks before emptying the internal dreg drawer. The monitored drip tray has a capacity of 31.5oz.
Cleaning and maintenance of the machine have been further simplified thanks to the included AquaClean water filter. Depending on your water hardness, the AquaClean allows you to brew up to 5000 cups without having to descale your machine. The Babila is also programmed with automatic cycles for the brew group, milk carafe, and descaling.
You can also program your water hardness to determine when you need to replace the filter or descale your machine. To conserve energy, the Babila can automatically rest in eco-mode and power down into low-energy standby after 15 - 180 minutes since its last use.
