Product description

Product Description

Treat your taste buds, with over 60 years of Italian espresso tradition

Gaggia is a company deeply rooted in Italian espresso heritage, yet its coffee machines have evolved over the decades, from the original pressure-generating, lever-activated piston, to the latest fully-automated, bean-to-cup technology which, at the touch of a button, grinds, brews and dispenses a delicious cup of espresso. However you prefer to brew your coffee--whether you want the simplicity of bean-to-cup or crave domestic barista status--there is a Gaggia for you.

History

In 1938, Achille Gaggia filed patent no. 365726, an ingenious invention which saw steam pressure applied to ground coffee, so that the water forced through the coffee extracted all its flavours and aromas to create a rich foam crema layer. However, the real revolution came 10 years later when Achille Gaggia filed a new patent, for a lever-operated piston machine incorporating a spring. This spring provided additional pressure, and this pressure forced water through the coffee in a shorter time, producing a short black espresso in just 15 seconds.

In the 1950s, Gaggia found fame in the trendy coffee bars of Rome and Milan, and most notably in London’s prominent Sirocci in Soho. These coffee bars soon became icons of the '50s lifestyle. With the launch of Baby Gaggia in 1977, the company began producing domestic espresso machines, making the professional values inherent in Gaggia’s commercial machines widely available for use in the home.

Twin Boiler
Twin boiler reduces the waiting time between coffee brewing and steam output to just a few seconds
Rapid steam

Gaggia Accademia is fitted with a twin boiler which reduces the waiting time between coffee production and steam delivery to just a few seconds. This ensures that your coffee and milk are served at a consistent temperature to get the best tasting drink. This coffee machine is ideal for preparing espresso coffee using either coffee beans or ground coffee, and is equipped with a device for dispensing steam and hot water. The elegantly styled machine is designed to create a professionally-made cup of coffee to enjoy in the comfort of your home.

The twin boiler reduces the normal waiting time between coffee brewing and steam output to just a few seconds. Twin boilers means that you are able to brew coffee and add milk to make a cappuccino or latte without an additional wait, so you can froth milk to make cappuccinos, lattes, and macchiato coffee at the simple turn of the steam knob.

Removable brewing unit
Removable brewing unit for easy cleaning and maintenance
Removable brewing unit

Cleaning your coffee machine removes hard water mineral deposits, old oils from previously brewed coffee and other impurities that can make your coffee taste bad. The Gaggia Accademia automatic coffee machine comes with a removable brewing unit for easy cleaning and maintenance. Maintenance and cleaning should only be carried out when the machine is cold and disconnected from the power supply. For better durability and long-lasting results, clean the brewing unit of the machine with water. The brewing unit needs to be removed for cleaning, then rinsed thoroughly with hot water. Use a soft cloth moistened with water to clean the outside of the machine. Scale forms while the machine is in use; it is necessary to remove scale every 3-4 months of use or whenever you observe a decreased flow of water.

Ceramic Grinder
Ceramic grinder retains the purity of your coffee
Ceramic grinder

The durable ceramic grinder retains the purity of the coffee and can be adjusted to grind as coarse or as fine as you prefer. The quality and flavour of your coffee will depend not only on the blend you use but also on how finely you grind it. The ceramic burr grinder in this machine results in a consistent, static-free grind--and it works quietly. Insert beans into the sealable bean hopper, which holds 8.8oz of beans. This clear plastic hopper allows you to monitor the bean levels easily, and the machine will alert you with an 'add coffee beans' message when the hopper runs low. Each time you brew, the Gaggia Accademia grinds beans for that shot, ensuring the freshest taste. The grind setting can be adjusted between coarse, medium and fine using the included grinder adjustment tool.

Every machine is factory-regulated to a medium-sized grind; turn the knob to higher numbers to obtain a coarser grind, turn the knob to lower numbers to obtain a finer grind. The finer you grind the coffee, the more flavour can be extracted from the same volume. But it's the type of coffee-making equipment you own that will determine what grind you can get away with. The ceramic grinder in the Gaggia Accademia automatic coffee machine was chosen after careful consideration and research. Ceramic material is safe and durable to use. It is inert and thus ensures the best results without changing the consistency or flavour of the coffee.

The ceramic grinder in Gaggia Accademia also provides a more consistent grind from start til end, allowing perfect dosing and blending. It gives you more control over the body and density of your coffee. And that's not all--the amount of coffee residue left in the cup is substantially reduced. Moreover, ceramic grinders are long-lasting and make minimum noise. Thanks to its powerful, robust build, the ceramic coffee grinder will quietly grind to the same consistency and high standards for a longer period of time.

Personalise your perfect cup
Customise everything to your personal tastes
Personalise your perfect cup

The 'personalise your coffee' function allows you to programme the dispensing buttons on your electronic control panel to suit your own personal coffee preferences. Every cup is freshly brewed and prepared with the ultimate balance of your choice between coffee and water--a guarantee for a smooth, full taste and delicious aroma.

You can customise everything to your personal tastes, from the number and size of coffees you make through to the amount of milk or coffee that is dispensed. The Gaggia Accademia coffee machine has a finger touch function to save user settings, a novel way to easily access your preferred coffee settings. Since you store coffee beans in the machine, brewing a morning cup made exactly to your liking is as easy as pressing a button.

Ground Coffee Compartment
Brew a different blend

Variety is still an option--via the ground coffee compartment you can brew a different blend without changing the beans.

Fresh coffee beans, pure water and milk

With the Gaggia Accademia coffee machine you can rest assured that everything is as fresh and delicious as if it were being prepared in the finest café. The machine allows you to adjust the amount of coffee (dose) to be ground according to your requirements. The Gaggia Accademia is an effortless and efficient, bean-to-cup espresso maker.

This coffee machine is ideal for preparing espresso coffee using either coffee beans or ground coffee, and is equipped with a device for dispensing steam and hot water. The integrated water and bean tanks are easily accessible from the top and front, and perfectly complement the machine’s ergonomic design. Special insulation and super-silent ceramic grinders preserve your peaceful kitchen atmosphere.

Select your preferred strength of coffee

Strength selector

Coffee has a huge variety of different flavours and undertones as well as strengths. Much of your decision will come down to personal taste. Therefore, to assist you Gaggia have devised a 'strength selector' feature in the Gaggia Accademia coffee machine which will help you in your decision-making process. The strength of a coffee is mainly determined by a two things, how long the beans are roasted for and the amount of coffee you use in a cup.

With the Gaggia Accademia you can have from mild coffee to medium to strong; just select the amount of coffee beans to be ground for your espresso and enjoy the coffee strength of your choice.

Rotating Steamer

The Gaggia Accademia’s frothing wand rotates out, so you can froth and steam with ease. The Pannarello attachment makes frothing and steaming even easier, especially if you’re just beginning. To steam, press the steam icon. This takes you to the steam/hot water menu--press the word 'steam' in the top right corner of the screen, and open the steam knob located on the left side of the machine to the steam icon. Steam will begin dispensing. When you have your desired amount, close the steam wand and exit out of the steam menu. Remember to wipe down the steam wand with a damp cloth after using it to prevent milk residue build-up.

The Gaggia Accademia also delivers hot water for tea and other hot drinks. There's nothing like a good cup of coffee to lend a little luxury to one's daily life. The Accademia embodies this by combining advanced technology and classic form, underscored by the durability and elegance of its materials, resulting in an almost sculptural presence suited to the most demanding furnishings.

Water filter

An inclusive water filter prevents any tainting of the coffee and maintains a purer flavour, as well as keeping your machine cleaner. The Aqua Prima water filter was developed to remove impurities from the water that can alter the taste of your coffee. The Aqua Prima water filter’s purpose is to improve the taste of your coffee while protecting your machine from lime scale damage. With the Aqua Prima water filter, the number of flavour-altering substances found in the water is greatly reduced. Micro-particles and impurities are filtered, so you can enjoy the improved flavour and full aroma of your coffee. Aqua Prima also reduces the formation of lime scale in the machine so that it lasts even longer.

Active Cup Warming Plate

The heating element beneath the plate provides efficient warming of your cups. The cup warming tray on top of the machine is ideal for cup storage and easily accommodates four coffee cups so you can have your coffee fresh and warm.

Gaggia’s focus on innovation emphasises simplicity, ease of use and the quality of the finished beverage--and results in the Gaggia Accademia. Gaggia incorporated a stainless steel front panel into this design.

Digital Control Panel

This luxurious espresso machine comes with touch screen controls and an LED display. As for the water pressure, the Gaggia Accademia provides a maximum of 15 bars of pressure, more than what you’ll need to pull each shot.

Simplicity and elegant lines--that’s how Gaggia describes the design of the Accademia. Your eyes are immediately drawn to the large touch screen; below this screen is the coffee dispenser and espresso plus system beverage strength dial. To the left of this dispenser is the steam wand with Panarello frothing attachment, and to the right of the touch screen is a cup icon and arrows for raising and lowering the cup tray. The very best in automatic coffee machines, the Gaggia Accademia will make you a real barista with the ability to produce any espresso-based drink at the touch of a button. Perfect and quick results are guaranteed by two separate boilers, one for coffee and one for steam and water, while the auto cappuccino carafe ensures milky coffees are hassle-free to make.

The large black and white touch screen shows three cups for small espresso, medium coffee and large coffee, and in the top left corner there's a steam icon. Below the cups are the words 'explain icons', a clock, and a 'go to menu' button. If you press 'explain icons', the icons are replaced with words, so it will say 'small coffee', 'medium coffee', 'large coffee' and 'steam wand'. Pressing the clock allows you to change the clock settings. Pressing 'go to menu' takes you to the programming menu, where you can set features such as language, temperature, coffee dose, display, time, view the number of drinks made and perform cleaning functions.

Important to know…

1. The taste of your coffee depends on the characteristics of the beans from which it is made, the type of bean, and where it was grown and processed. Coffee beans that are roasted for a longer period of time and at higher temperatures will be much darker in colour. Darker beans will produce a richer cup of coffee than lightly-roasted beans.

2. A variety of dark roasts are available from which you can choose to brew your espresso. Each of these roasts is a blend of coffee beans that are roasted at a specific temperature producing a specific type of flavour. Decaffeinated beans have had up to 98% of their caffeine content removed. The next time you purchase coffee for your espresso maker, experiment with one of the many kinds of coffee being sold. You may just find that it tastes better than the blend you have been using.

3. A fine 'espresso grind' for pump-driven machines must be used. Be sure to ask for this when buying coffee or when having beans ground. Do not use a blade-type grinder because it makes too much coffee dust and produces an irregular grind.

4. The mark of real espresso is its dark colour, rich taste and the light brown, natural froth called 'crema' in Italian.

5. Cappuccino is simply a combination of espresso and hot, frothy milk. Cappuccino is usually topped with cinnamon, nutmeg or cocoa powder.

6. Espresso coffee should be served immediately after it is made.

7. Espresso should be served in 2 to 2 ½ oz. demitasse cups. A 4 or 6 oz. cup or glass should be used for cappuccino.

8. Ideally, coffee beans should be ground immediately before using. Remember, it must be an 'espresso grind' for pump-driven espresso machines.

9. It’s best to store ground coffee or beans in an airtight container in the freezer of your refrigerator as ground coffee tends to absorb food odours.
