If sophistication is your middle name then check out the Achille Gaggia Espresso Maker. To honor the man who revolutionized Italian coffee making, his namesake, Achille Gaggia Espresso Maker is inspired by the 1940’s design of lever-control. Brewing the perfect cuppa in this vintage model (albeit with modern technology) will add the much-needed charisma to the task. For those of you who are fond of cappuccino lattes, frothing the milk with the stainless steel turbo-frothing wand will extract ‘every nuance of flavor and aroma into one or two cups.’ The boiler temperature and pressure, both are monitored using an easy-to-read dial gauge. They are controlled with an internal pressure regulator that makes sure you can have that next cup whenever you want to. It features a brushed stainless steel housing with a removable cup tray, filter baskets for single/double espressos or pre-measured espresso pods, single-switch operation, and a 28-oz. reservoir.
Made in Italy, the Achille Gaggia Espresso Maker costs $1,299.00.
