Most famous for their line of superautomatic bean-to-cup espresso machines, Gaggia, founded in 1948 in Milan, Italy, is responsible for heralding the modern age of espresso by replacing the use of steam to make espresso by developing a system that used water under high pressure instead.


Today, besides their super automatics, Gaggia is famous for their very popular “Gaggia Classic” espresso machine, which has become the first choice for home baristas looking for an affordable, yet extremely capable traditional semi-automatic espresso machine.
