Gaggia Classic 30 – Limited edition
2021 marks an important anniversary for Gaggia. Thirty years ago, the company launched an espresso machine that made history: Gaggia Classic. It was in 1991 when, following the footsteps of Baby Gaggia, Classic made its first appearance.
Immediately, it became a true icon. Coffee enthusiasts from all over the world consecrated this machine as a symbol of the unique art of making and enjoying a perfect Italian espresso at home.
Today, it is the company’s signature product, a flagship of the “Made in Italy” and “Espresso at home” culture in the world. This espresso machine still embodies the values of the manufacturer. Even if times have changed, its heart and mission are always the same. Join us in celebrating these first thirty years of authentic home espresso, tradition, never-ending passion and excellence, with an unmissable limited edition: Gaggia Classic 30. 3000 pieces only, entirely Made in Italy and numbered one by one on the production line.
For this occasion, Gaggia asked the Italian artist Pierpaolo Gaballo to choose a symbol for the 30th Anniversary of Gaggia Classic. He opted for an Acrobat. In this character, he saw a natural parallelism with the Home Barista. In fact, the Home Barista combines a wise preparation with dexterity, practice and balance of the elements, just like an Acrobat. They both make performances, but on different backgrounds. One in a house, at his/her personal coffee station, while the other one on a stage, in front of an audience.
Gaggia agreed with this symbolic interpretation from the beginning. The two souls of Gaggia Classic – the Acrobat and the Home Barista – mirror on the two sides of the machine. One is its purest essence, smooth, simple, direct: the Home Barista. On the opposite side, the artistic twist drawn by the Acrobat, a wonderful decoration that mesmerizes us.
Gaggia Classic 30 is an ode to authenticity, creativity, freedom, fantasy. Who chooses this machine will own a work of art that mixes Italian quality, tradition, design, with the fascinating art of contemporary illustration.
|Professional Chromed Brass Group and Filter-Holder|
Having the same style, size, ring and function as a professional machine, the Gaggia Classic Pro produces the perfect cup of coffee, every time. The heavy-chromed brass group and filter holder ensure a consistent and stable temperature throughout the entire brewing process.
|3 Filters For Ground Coffee and Pod|
Gaggia Classic comes with 3 filters which are suitable for all types of users – from beginners to experts. These filters can be used with ground coffee and coffee pods.
|Professional Steam Wand With 2 Steam Outlets|
This allows you to produce the perfect frothy milk to make the traditional creamy cappuccino served at an Italian bar… but to enjoy at the comfort of your own home.
The three-way Solenoid Valve relieves pressure in the filter-holder immediately after pulling a shot. Water empties from the filter-holder via the open valve and travels into the drip tray. This leaves the coffee pucks relatively dry, making it easy to clean.
|Traditional Gaggia Boiler|
The traditional boiler secures great espresso quality, thanks to the excellent temperature stability during the whole brewing process. The 15-bar pump pushes the hot water through the ground coffee at high pressure to ensure better-tasting, crema-topped espresso.
|New Intuitive User Interface|
Have total control of the functions thanks to Gaggia Classic Colour Vibes’s traditional rocker-buttons and the ‘on/off’ indicator lights. To activate for espresso preparation and operate the steam wand – simply flip on the switch.
The stainless steel cup holder and warmer is Gaggia Classic Colour Vibes’s practical feature. Conveniently store up to 5 espresso cups and glasses on top of the espresso machine itself – using the heat produced from the coffee machine to keep them hot and ready for use.
