SYDNEY: The Gaggia coffee machine business this year celebrates 30 years since founder, Achilles Gaggia, used the blueprints from a commercial espresso machine and produced the first ever domestic machine for the home called the ‘Baby Gaggia’.
To celebrate its thirtieth birthday, Gaggia has released three news versions of the Baby Gaggia – the Baby Twin, Baby Class and Baby Dose.
The Baby Twin, which the company calls the “leader of the pack”, features an electronic fontrol panel touch-ring which includes an electronic dosing system and rapid steam function, the latter of which eliminates the waiting time between making cups of coffee.
The Baby Class is an “elegant and classy” model, boasting a steel chassis, and a commercial brass group head, filter holder and solenoid valve.
The Baby Dose is red in colour with “stylish silver features,” along with an electronic dosing system that lets users view and program the amount of coffee extracted in to the cup, tailoring the drink to the user’s taste.
Every customer who purchases a Baby Gaggia espresso machine in 2007 will receive a bonus frothing jug.
