Founded in Milan, Italy, Gaggia has the experience and reputation customers have been trusting for over 75 years. In fact, they patented the first steam-free espresso machine which revolutionized the modern industry! Gaggia is currently producing some of the bestselling home machines on the market today and the new Anima Series is one of their most current offerings. The series includes the Anima, the Anima Deluxe and the most premium model the Anima Prestige. The Anima Prestige is the best in class in this series and is a superautomatic, meaning it is an all-in-one system that grinds, tamps, brews, steams all with the push of a button. Remarkable features include a fingerprint resistant stainless steel front, a programmable digital display, a removable brewgroup with programmable pre-infusion, a ceramic burr grinder with bypass doser for ground coffee, an auto milk frothing carafe, a 60 ounce water reservoir with Mavea filter and many others. This machine is the perfect fit for users who would like to have the experience of creating exceptional coffee beverages in the comfort of their own kitchen.
MODERN, LUXURIOUS APPEARANCE
The Anima Prestige is lovely in appearance and complements other stainless steel appliances perfectly with its fingerprint resistant stainless steel front panel. The contemporary digital display on this machine adds an element of the modern but the lines and details are classic enough to hold steady in the changing fads and times.
REMOVABLE AUTO MILK FROTHING CARAFE
The milk steaming system is what sets the Prestige apart from the other models in the series. The Prestige includes a very handy auto milk frothing carafe. Operation could not be easier. Users must simply fill the carafe with milk, slide and lock it into the front of the machine and select what type of beverage from the cappuccino or latte macchiato buttons. The Prestige will steam the milk into a velvety froth and it will be dispensed from the spout directly into the cup. The machine auto cleans the carafe and milk frothing system and users can store the milk carafe in the fridge in between uses. The carafe is also dishwasher safe.
PROGRAMMABLE BREWING WITH OPTIDOSE SYSTEM
Programming of the brew is easy with an intuitive interface. Users can choose between the labeled beverage push buttons and can customize the strength of the drinks using the Optidose system which can be adjusted in 5 increments from 6.5 – 11.5 grams. Users can also make adjustments to the volume of the drink and the temperature.
INNOVATIVE REMOVABLE BREWGROUP WITH PROGRAMMABLE PRE-INFUSION
Tamping the grinds into a perfect disc is a skill that can take years for a barista to master. Gaggia has eliminated this requirement by doing this for you! Pre-infusion can also be programmed through the digital display, meaning the grind is pre-saturated to create a more consistent, even brew and improve the flavor of the beverage. The clever design of this machine allows users to fully remove the brewgroup for cleaning and maintenance which will encourage users to upkeep the machine to optimize performance.
ADJUSTABLE BREW DISPENSER HEIGHT
A very handy feature on this unit is the ability to move the brew dispenser to accommodate different heights of cups. The dispenser can be raised to fit a cup of up to 5.9 inches.
8.8 OUNCE BEAN HOPPER WITH BYPASS DOSER FOR GROUND COFFEE USE
Equipped with an 8.8 ounce capacity plastic bean hopper and a bypass doser, this machine is capable of handling both whole beans and ground coffee.
FLAT CERAMIC GRINDING BURRS WITH 5 PROGRAMMABLE GRIND SETTINGS
The Prestige’s versatile grinding systems allows users to dial in the perfect grind setting for their beverage of choice using one of five grind settings.
FULLY REMOVABLE 60 OUNCE WATER TANK WITH MAVEA FILTER
The plastic water tank has a capacity of 60 ounces and is fully removable for refilling and cleaning. The reservoir is accessible through the top of the machine. The water system includes a Mavea water filter that works in 4 stages to purify the taste of the water and remove impurities/scale.
AUTO CLEAN WITH SELF-RINSE CYCLE
For a novice home barista, cleaning and maintenance of a new machine can be quite intimidating. Gaggia has made cleaning and maintenance about as easy as it can get by programming the digital display to alert users when maintenance is required. Auto self-cleaning can also be programmed at regular intervals to lengthen the life of the machine.
