REVOLUTIONARY REMOVABLE BREWGROUP FOR EASY CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
It can take years of practice to perfectly tamp grinds, that is why Gaggia has programmed the Anima to do this for you! Gaggia has developed a unique brewgroup that is accessible from the side panel of the machine. It is easily removable and can be rinsed with cool or lukewarm water to optimize performance.
PROGRAMMABLE PRE-INFUSION FOR MAXIMUM FLAVOR CONSISTENCY
