Gaggia 90500 Super Automatic Espresso Machine Review

gaggia-90500-titanium-espresso-makerThe Gaggia 90500 Super Automatic Espresso machine is a little beauty. It is fully automatic and with just a press of a button it will grind, measure and dispense the espresso into your cup. This is a solid piece of equipment with a stainless steel front panel and metal outer case.

This espresso machine has two boilers which helps to reduce the wait time between brewing and steaming. What this means is that your coffee doesn’t go cold while you are waiting for the steamer to heat up to froth the milk. This is especially useful if you are entertaining and need to make a number of cups of coffee for your guests.

This espresso machine produces three different beverages: espresso, regular coffee and caffe lungo but essentially you can make any type of cappuccino or latte. I also love how this machine can dispense hot water – perfect if you have a hot tea drinker in the house or you’d like a hot chocolate or if you are like me and just like to drink hot water. The water heats up in about 30 seconds.

The GaggiaTitanium Super Espresso Machine grinds the beans for you but you can also use pre-ground coffee which becomes especially useful for decaffeinated coffee drinkers or if you have a favorite pre-ground mix. There is actually a separate chute so you don’t need to remove the coffee beans from the main hopper to use the pre-ground beans…another great option to have when entertaining as you can easily meet all your guests needs.

The grinder has an amazing 18 different settings so you can grind your coffee beans as finely as you need. When the coffee beans are ground the leftovers are moved into a separate container for easy cleaning and the LCD display will let you know when it needs to be emptied.

There is also a pre-brewing option which softens the coffee beans bringing out the real flavor and aroma of the coffee.

You can also program the amount of coffee for each cup depending on how strong you like your coffee from between 6 and 9 grams for each cup.

The dispensing spout is adjustable to accommodate different size cups and you can program the amount of water per cup.

Pre-warmed cups are essential to making a good cup of coffee and the the Gaggio 90500 meets this requirement perfectly. With the automatic cup warmer you will make the perfect cup of coffee every time.

We really like the frothing wand and the cappuccinatore which automatically froths milk making it super easy to make cappuccinos. The best part is that the froth automatically drops into your cup.

The water reservoir holds enough water to make up to 30 cups of espresso and 10 cups of regular coffee. You can also adjust the water temperature with five different settings so you can have a very hot coffee or less hot coffee depending on your preference.

The Gaggia 90500 machine keeps a record of the number of cups of coffee you have made and displays it on the LCD screen.

The on screen LCD display will let you know when to add add beans and water and even when to clean the machine.

The swivel base makes cleaning a breeze as you can access any part of the machine by simply turning it on its base. In other words, once you have placed it on your counter you don’t need to lift it ever again.

The Gaggia 90500 Titanium Super Automatic Espresso machine is a top notch product and well worth the investment if you are a regular coffee drinker.
