The New Baby Gaggia – Problem Child Or Perfect Espresso Maker?

While in the rest of the world we must often make do with Starbucks and the like, can there be anyone who has visited Italy without sampling the delights of a small dark cup of this tasty Italian espresso.

Espresso is to an Italian as a cup of tea to the English and while Starbucks do have their place in the world they lack three things – atmosphere, first class coffee and decent cups to serve it in.

And so if you can’t find excellent coffee in Starbucks, where can you find it? The answer is simpler than you reckon – why not serve it in your own home?

Anyone thinking of investing in an espresso machine should consider the Gaggia range. They are well made machines and their home range is descended from their professional coffee makers.

One of the most vital things to look for in a home espresso maker is a pump driven system – that was the water is delivered to the coffee at a right and uniform pressure, absolutely essential for a excellent espresso.

The choice for many people is the Baby Gaggia, unit that is compact enough for most homes – you don’t need the space for one of those chrome monsters you see in Italian bars – and has been manufactured by the Italian company since 1977.

Filled from the top with distilled water, the newly updated Baby Gaggia can be used with pods or ground coffee. Pods have the advantage of leaving no mess from the coffee grounds as they’re self-contained, but more expensive and give you a limited choice of coffee. So is the new Baby Gaggia a problem child or the perfect espresso maker?

In fact there is nearly nothing incorrect with the Baby Gaggia – it will require some maintenance from time to time and require a excellent deal of cleaning like all espresso machines. Probably the largest drawback is that its case has a plastic end rather than being chromed, but its recent remodelling means it still looks excellent in the home and provided that you have excellent coffee – I recommend Illy for best results – the coffee is perfect every time. My verdict – the Baby Gaggia is a solid machine that performs flawlessly.
