The Gaggia Brera is a superb bean to cup machine with all the features and a premium finish you would expect from Gaggia, and with a 2 year service guarantee making it all the better!
The Brera is a compact but very capable unit finished with brushed stainless steel front panels, metal side panels and an ABS back panel. The unit is robust and solid in build and appearance while also highly functional. Atop the machine is a UV protected, airtight bean hopper to ensure freshness with a capacity of 250g of coffee beans. There is also a Bypass chute for pre-ground coffee, great if you would prefer a decaffeinated brew. The grinder is not to be out done either, featuring ceramic burrs to help prevent over heating and to promote a consistent grind over a long service life.
The machine is also easily serviced as it is programmed to alert the user with an LED on the control panel when maintenance such as descaling is required. The automatic cleaning routine triggered whenever the machine is turned on or off ensures a fresh clean taste to drinks every time. Other routine actions are also a breeze like refilling the removable water reservoir being placed at the front as well as the drip tray and spent coffee compartment, all easily accessible for cleaning. To the right side of Brera a panel provides access to the innovative removable brewing group, truly the heart of the machine, it requires only a rinse and dry on occasion to keep it clean and is easily removed and replaced in a matter of seconds.
A pre-infusion action which dampens the grind before the pump is triggered means more flavourful espresso every time, this ability, usually the reserve of expensive commercial machines, now achievable in the home!
The Brera is also compatible with Brita filters to help keep the machine scale free and to improve the taste of drinks. An auto sleep function is triggered after 1 hour of inactivity. This mode runs the machine on less than one kilowatt per hour saving you money.
We could probably go on all day about the Brera but we don't think we need to. Its performance and reviews are positive to say the least and we are sure you will not be disappointed either.
