Coffee Lovers: The Gaggia Titanium Super Automatic Espresso Machine
Gaggia of Milan, Italy has created another fantastic espresso machine, the Gaggia Titanium Super Automatic Espresso Machine. When you consider it’s handsome looks, an extraordinary list of features, and it’s superior brew quality, you understand you’ve got a remarkable machine.
The push-button simplicity starts with seven programmable buttons which operate many of the features on the machine. Included in these features are three coffee volume settings, a pre-grinding setting, a pre-infusion setting, five different temperature settings, and an on/off timer.
The front panel and outer shell are made of steel. Inside the shell are the Titanium’s two stainless steel boilers, one for brewing coffee, and the other for steaming and frothing milk. Using the double-boiler system you no longer have to wait for the water to re-heat, while your espresso cools off, before you can froth your milk. And the Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine gives you the option of using either the stainless steel Gaggia “Turbo Frother” or the auto-frother (which is included) to create uncommonly delicious cappuccinos and lattes.
Here is a summary of some of just a few of the benefits that you will absolutely love in your Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine:
The Gaggia Titanium has an adjustable doser allowing you to control, precisely, the amount of coffee grounds used for each drink, so you can enjoy your espresso at the strength you prefer it.
Do you like your coffee piping hot? Then adjust the water temperature to just where you want it to be. You have a choice of five different temperature settings.
When it’s time to refill the coffee bean hopper or the water reservoir the LCD display will provide you with an alert. The LCD display is also used to program the pre-grinding, pre-infusion, temperature control, and the cup warmer.
Coffee pre-infusion is the first step to a great espresso coffee drink. As part of the brewing process the Titanium first moistens and conditions the ground coffee in a two second process. The moistened ground are allowed to sit for a couple of seconds which is long enough to allow the flavorful and aromatic oils to begin leaching from the coffee.
The conical burr grinder has 18 different settings. Determined by your preferences you can grind your beans from fine to coarse to produce light, medium, or dark coffee from espresso or regular coffee beans.
When making a cappuccino or latte you no longer need to wait, while your espresso shot cools off, to begin steaming and frothing your milk thanks to Gaggia’s Rapid-Steam technology You’ll be making those delicious espresso drinks faster than a drip machine can make even a single cup of regular coffee.
Pre-heating your coffee cups is important. The Titanium Espresso Machine warms up six of your espresso cups using its actively heated cup warmer. The cup warmer will turn on whenever the machine is switched on.
You will be able to brew as many as 30 shots of espresso, or 10 cups of coffee, before you have to refill the Titanium’s 60 fluid ounce reservoir.
It is super simple to clean the Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine. All you have to do is open the front door, press the thumb release lever, and remove the brew group. Simply rinso off with warm water and dry with a soft towel.
The bean hopper holds over a half-pound of fresh whole bean coffee, which is enough for about 30 espressos before you’ll have to refill.
Used ground are automatically put into a dump box which is found inside the machine. Access is easy from the front of the machine by sliding out the drip tray. The digital display will indicate when the tray or the dump box need to be emptied.
The Gaggia Titanium Super Automatic Espresso Machine is much more then just an “Espresso Machine”. It is a well-deserved gift to yourself that you will enjoy for years. You will be a big hit with family, friends, and neighbors when you invite them over for one of your home-brewed espresso drink specialties.
