TECHNOLOGY

The Gaggia Brera allows you to combine the delivery of the classic espresso with an integrated grinding performed in the instant, giving the best coffee aroma. The Gaggia Brera is equipped with a ceramic grinder (250g) which allows optimal coffee grinding, and can be adjusted for different coffee weights, from 7g to 10.5g. The Aroma Adjustment function allows you to choose the intensity of the flavour, and has four aroma options. The machine also has a special compartment to hold the ground coffee

DESIGN

The Gaggia Brera has a stainless steel front panel, giving it a professional look suitable also for environments outside the kitchen. The body is not entirely made of steel: the side panels and the control knob are plastic. Despite its large size, the Gaggia Brera is not very large in terms of water capacity (1.2 L) and grounds repository (8 servings).

USE

The Gaggia Brera allows you to obtain a quality espresso thanks to the Aroma Select mechanism. After grinding the beans, the machine automatically doses the coffee and proceeds with dispensing. The quantity of coffee dispensed is also programmable for the two main options: espresso and standard coffee. The digital display makes navigation quick and easy. The class A energy rating and the auto-shutdown system allow low energy consumption. The Gaggia Brera also has a milk frother to prepare hot water, tea and infusions.

MAINTENANCE

Each operation involves a rinse cycle. It is therefore necessary to always have an empty cup within reach of the dispenser. Cleaning and maintenance remain a little complicated, especially because of the coffee sensors that easily become blocked, and must be kept clean. The descaling cycle is a little complicated and laborious. The elegant exterior of the Gaggia Brera clearly requires a lot of cleaning.
