Overview

The Gaggia Classic is timeless; a semi-automatic machine that’s continued to impress us year after year while other machines fade into obscurity. Owing to its name, the Classic is elegant in form with a newly updated brushed stainless-steel housing, and robust in function with its 3-way solenoid valve and best-in-class 55 watt electric pump. I don’t think we’ll ever pack ours away.

Updated in 2003, Gaggia has replaced the nickel plated carbon steel housing with brushed stainless steel making for a more durable housing that will not rust or flake overtime. The portafilter handle was also fitted to include a stainless steel dispensing beak to improve espresso flow consistency when split between 2 demitasse cups or shot glasses. The design of the portafilter has generally remained the same; a respectable 1 pound of chrome plated brass and 58mm diameter commercial size. The portafilter locks into a massive chrome plated brass brew group. Heat stability and retention are remarkable with this much mass, a Gaggia standard most other semi-autos cannot match. What’s more, all Gaggia espresso machines were equipped with Pannarello style frother to replace what was known as the Turbo Frother. Our testing showed that the pannarello wand is less finicky and requires less technique to produce quality frothed milk quickly.

One feature that shouldn’t go overlooked is the Classic’s 3-way solenoid valve, which we only tend to see in high end equipment like prosumer and commercial machines. The 3-way solenoid valve relieves the pressure that develops during the brewing process, about 8 to 9 bar, and diverts it to the drip tray. This draws away most of the water left over in the group and leaves you with a relatively dry coffee puck. A drier puck means less coffee grounds to clean.
