Description

The Gaggia Brera achieves this variation in large part through its inbuilt ceramic burr grinder. Grinders like these are known for allowing the ground coffee to retain a lot more of the bean’s aroma and, thus, flavor. Additionally, the Brera has been available for a number of years and has proven to be reliable. What do Buyers Say? To be honest, I felt like any grind adjustments I made had very little effect on the outcome; my shots were just about the same when I adjusted the grinder to its finest setting. You can also use the Gaggia Brera with ground coffee. This is essential for people who like to drink their coffee decaff and will come in handy for anybody who has a favorite ground coffee that they want to turn into lovely, creamy espresso.

Within a couple of brew cycles, the Brera had figured out my coffee beans and was consistently delivering 2 ounces (59 milliliters) of very good coffee. This all comes down to Gaggia’s “Adapting System,” wherein the machine alters its grind cycle according to your strength setting and coffee beans.

MAINTENANCE

I’m used to dealing with removable brew groups on super automatics, so it was no surprise to see one in my Gaggia Brera review. You can pop it out of the side door when it’s time for regular rinsing and maintenance. Think of the brewing group like a car engine – you won’t be getting anywhere without it, and it’ll need regular maintenance to keep functioning. The front panels are advertised as being made of stainless steel. However, they look and feel like plastic to me. In fact, I tested the front panels with a magnet and there was no attraction whatsoever. Easy to use, great product Gaggia did it again. As a bean to cup the coffee is not as it would be with a regular coffee machine but it is well close to that. Cleaning and maintenance is also very easy. All espresso machines must be “DESCALED” regularly. Filtered water or bottled water is free from chemical odours but not free from minerals. Using a water softener is the best option for mineral free water. If a water softener is not installed, then the best option is to descale the machine at least every 2-months. Gaggia spa recommends using the Gaggia Descaler for descaling your machine. Do not rely on the machine to remind you when descaling is due. When available, this feature is programmed by the number of espresso's served. The machine cannot sense the variable hardness of water from one part of the country to another. Follow a definite schedule for descaling every two months. Please DO NOT use vinegar or lemon juice for descaling as a residue will remain on the inside of the boiler which will be hard to get rid off and your coffee will end up with a taste of vinegar or lemon. De-scale every 2-3 months(monthly if you live in a very hard water area) as machine is not covered by guarantee for scaling.​

The Jura Z6 is one of the top models in the automatic machines segment thanks to the PEP Pulse Extraction Process, which allows you to obtain an espresso coffee of the highest quality at the touch of a button. The strength of the Jura Z6 is its ease of use, which combined with the large number of features and stylish design make it the flagship of all automatic models on the market. The figures speak for themselves: 12 types of drinks dispensed, 3 levels of hot water, 13 programmable specialities, 10 levels of coffee intensity, 10 levels of foam temperature.In short, a high-end coffee shop in your own home… Recent Posts Specialty milk drinks can be easily prepared with the pannarello steam wand. By positioning the selector switch to the left, the Brera will produce steam, allowing you to froth milk. The design of the pannarello wand produces rich milk foam with minimal technique required for the perfect homemade cappuccino. You can also produce hot water for drinks like Americanos, tea, and cocoa by positioning the selector switch to the right. It might seem like Gaggia is adding more to your chore list here, but if anything, a brew group that you can manually clean might just have a longer lifespan. I’ve reviewed plenty of compact automatics lately, but I think the Gaggia Brera might just take home the trophy here. At just over 12 inches (30 centimeters) tall and weighing less than 20 pounds (8 kilograms), you’d be hard-pressed to find a smaller competitor. The Gaggia Brera, although a relatively simple machine is very customizable when it comes to your beverage options. By adjusting grind size, aroma strength and liquid volume, you can achieve a beverage that is custom tailored to your liking. In general, we recommend a fine grind setting, a liquid volume between 1 ounce and 1 and a quarter ounce, and an aroma strength setting of 3 beans for espresso, and for a long coffee we recommend a medium to coarse grind setting, a liquid volume between 3 ounces and 4 ounces, and an aroma strength setting of 3 beans. The video on the right will show how to make these adjustments to ensure you are getting the most out of your Gaggia Brera.If no water is coming through head then you may have to descale the machine again. On solenoid valve machines, like the older model Classic or Baby, it may be an idea to press the coffee button and then intermittently press the steam button for 1 or 2 seconds. Once tank is almost empty, rinse the water tank before filling with fresh water. Repeat the procedure of sending water through the steam wand and brewhead so that it flushes out any of the remaining descaling solution in the boiler. Now you are ready to use the machine model only, but with a compatible mobile device or tablet, you can get the true experience with Augmented Reality and view the product in your own home. However, the espresso it gives isn’t quite up to the standard of more advanced, more expensive machines. If you’re a real coffee snob then you should save up and go for the bigger guns. As I said, there’s no way to organize these settings via user profiles, but it’s still a handy feature. Just try to avoid any family squabbling when you erase someone else’s settings to program yours in! Aroma Intensity

You can also use the Puly descaler as we have tested them. You need to make sure that you dilute this. https://www.gaggiadirect.com/cleaning-products.html#!/Puly-Descaling-Powder-x-10-sachets/p/144931872/category=5922063 Some manufacturers treat pre-infusion like an add-on or an optional feature, but I’d say it’s a vital first step. The Sonicare brush head replacement subscription is all about bringing convenience to your healthy smile. Make sure your filter baskets are cleaned thoroughly and degreased, especially if they are the double layered perfect crema baskets. You can identify them as they have lots of holes on the top layer and only one hole on the bottom layer] As far as specs go, the grinder on the Magenta isn’t going to offer you any more versatility. The biggest upgrade here is that user interface and the seamless process for specialty drinks. If you want to hear all my thoughts on the Magenta Prestige, I’ve linked my review below.Functionally, this won’t make a difference, but it does mean the steam wand isn’t as durable as it looks. We think that this super automatic machine is incredibly good value for money, especially when compared to more expensive models that offer fewer features (e.g., no steam wand). It’s certainly an investment when compared to entry-level budget options, but don’t forget that this is not just a basic espresso machine. It includes a ceramic burr grinder and allows you to make different types of coffee, including americanos, cappuccinos, and lattes.
