$Gaggia 14101 Classic
2-Cup Espresso Machine



I got the machine a year ago for a engagement present. My friends got if from Bed Bath and Beyond. It is by far my favorite espresso maker I used to have the Delonghi Espresso Maker Pump Ec270, which was so hard to clean, it was hard to figure out.

The Gaggia Classic Espresso Maker is so easy to use and solid, I have no problems with it at all.It brews fast, the shots are very good, it makes you feel like you are a Barista at Starbucks it is such a nice machine, I normally always drink the starbucks Casi Cielo.Cleaning is easy,the steam and frothing wand work better than I have heard of my friends are complaining how theirs work, I don't have any problems with cleaning it.I would recommend this machine is anyone.

Great machine frothing milk
by: Baba

I just got this machine and surprised how good this machine froth milk. On my first try to make espresso though came with a big surprise ... it splashed crema all over my counter. Needless to say, I was quite upset. Then I remembered reading about Diffuser Nozzle. Gaggia created this nozzle for ".... U.S. customers only to brew with the typical barista method ...." whatever it means. I looked for the nozzle but couldn't find it until I remembered that I washed all the pieces including the nozzle. So ended up placing my hand in the garbage disposal looking for the small nozzle and finding it there.

Now this will cause a major problem. When you clean the filter holder, the nozzle sits loose in it. Therefore, it more likely would end up in the disposal again and again. Gaggia should provide several nozzles with a machine or design it better.

Furthermore, I have not been able to brew strong enough crema to my liking using one measuring spoonful of Starbucks extra bold coffee. With my old less than $100 Mr. Coffee Espresso machine, I was able to achieve strong brew with about the same amount of coffee. Hence, a little disappointment there as well. To top that, I believe frothing pitcher should be included with this machine. I have no idea where I can purchase it.

Over all I like it enough to have a hope that I can enjoy this machine with more practice, using more coffee, buying frothing pitcher, and request for additional nozzle sent to me.

complex but worth it

It was one year ago that I had purchased this machine. I had never owned an espresso machine before so it took a lot of research for me to make my decision on purchasing this brand. I had ordered it over the Amazon website and received it in two days. I'll be honest, when I first received this espresso maker I did not know how to use it. It was difficult to figure out how to do so. The instructions provided were not exactly clear and were a bit difficult to read. I finally learnt how to use it properly from a friend whom owns the exact same espresso maker. One I got it working, I was pretty amazed by how well it worked. The espressos that in produced were quite amazing and they tasted just as they would if I were to buy them in a coffee shop. It makes the right amount. I was happy that I was able to make two cups at once so that I would be able to share one with my husband or a visiting relative or friend. The espresso maker is also made with stainless steel which is also a pretty big plus. I did have a problem with the steam thermostat. It had to be replaced about a month after I had purchased the machine. I was a bit sad about that since the unit itself was quite expensive. Since I had paid about $800 for the machine I didn't think a part of it should have broken down so easily.

Overall, this is a great machine. I have very few complaints about it and after you learn how to use it you'll brew the perfect cup of espresso every time.
