Gaggia is also an Italian-based company that was founded in 1938. Interestingly though they were acquired by Saeco in 1999 and if you read the blurb above about Saeco you know that they were bought out by Philips. The company itself though continues to operate from Italy producing fine coffee machines the way they always have.
Gaggia currently has nine super machines in production with two of those models having reached the levels we require here. Those two models are the Accademia Gaggia and Gaggia Platinum Vision with both of these models being known for their speed.

What makes these machines so super?
You’re probably curious though as to what just makes a coffee machine a super machine. Well there are a number of different functions that a machine has to be able to do in order to be considered super. Below is a brief breakdown of what you can generally expect from any of the machines noted above.
All super automatic coffee machines are able to perform the following feats, if it can’t do it, it’s not super:
- Whole coffee beans will now be the order of the day for you. The machine can and will take the beans from an internal hopper, grind them automatically for you and then dump them into a receiver for tamping. Yep you can throw away that coffee grinder you got for Christmas.
- The super automatic coffee machine will also tamp the newly created grounds for you at just the right pressure for the drink you are trying to create. The beauty is it will do it the same way every time, thereby giving you unparalleled consistency.
- The unit will also run the appropriate amount of water through the grounds and into your waiting cup. I know it’s not spectacular, but the point is you didn’t have to do anything to make it happen.
- Now this is my favorite function, automatic grounds disposal. The super automatic will automatically take those damp, nasty, used grounds and dispose of them into a waiting container. How cool is that?
Now for the extras.
- Depending on the make and model you choose there will be any number of extra bells and whistles included with a super coffee maker. Items such as two heating elements, which are used in a process called purging. Purging allows two different temperatures of water to be used, one for brewing and the other for steaming. Other accoutrements that can be included are a second bean hopper, temperature controls, coffee volume controls, a doubler button, pre-programmed drinks and a cup warmer.
Yep super coffee machines are truly a state of the art piece of equipment and one that will serve you well for years to come. We have a number of makes and models here for you to choose from.
