This is a company with a long-standing tradition of excellence.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Gaggia has just launched their new Anima series. The Anima lineup includes the Anima, the Anima Deluxe and the Anima Prestige. The Anima, the most economical in this series, is a super-automatic, meaning it is an all-in-one machine, it grinds, tamps, brews, etc. with just the simple push of a button. Making a perfect espresso has never been easier! The Anima is fantastic option for coffee enthusiasts who would like to channel their inner barista and produce the best espresso drinks in the comfort of their home. While this machine has been specially designed to be intuitive with a straight-forward interface, it offers various programming options to customize the perfect coffee beverage. The Anima takes much of the guesswork out of the espresso making process, streamlining a consistent delicious coffee with each and every use. Special features include a pannarello style milk frother, a ceramic burr grinder, a bypass doser for ground coffee, a removable brew group for easy cleaning and maintenance with pre-infusion capability, a removable 60 ounce water reservoir with filter, and many other desirable features.

MODERN YET TIMELESS DESIGN
Gaggia has specially designed this series to be as timeless as possible. The Anima is created with a black mated exterior finish with a stainless steel front and has a modern visual appeal that will compliment other appliances in the kitchen.

OPTIDOSE SYSTEM
The Optidose system allows users to control the strength of their coffee by choosing between 5 strength settings between 6.5 – 11.5 grams of coffee per brew.

PROGRAMMABLE BREWING
One touch brewing gives users the option of creating their favorite beverage with ease. Designated drink buttons and a modern digital display give users the option of customizing their drink of choice.

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
Pre-infusion works by pre-saturating the tamped coffee grinds disc before the brew is drawn from the grinds (extraction). The Anima has a programmable pre-infusion option to ensure each brew extracts evenly and consistently.

ADJUSTABLE CUP HEIGHT COFFEE DISPENSER
A nice feature on this unit is the ability to move the coffee dispenser up and down to accommodate different sizes of cups/mugs depending on your need. The dispenser can accommodate a cup of up to 5.9 inches.

PANNARELLO-STYLE FROTHER
Simply push the steam button to deliver ample steam to your milk to produce a velvety, creamy froth for your milk-based beverages. The steam wand can also be used to deliver hot water for Americanos, hot chocolate, tea, etc.

BEAN HOPPER WITH BYPASS DOSER FOR GROUND COFFEE
The Anima is furnished with an 8.8 ounce capacity ABS plastic hopper for the beans. Users can choose to utilize ground coffee instead of whole beans by utilizing the bypass doser.

CERAMIC GRINDING BURRS WITH 5 GRIND SETTINGS
Through the digital display, users can select one of five grind settings from coarse to fine to suit the type of beverage desired.

REMOVABLE 60 OUNCE WATER TANK WITH FILTER
The plastic water tank is accessible from the top of the machine. Users can use a pitcher to refill the water or the whole tank can be removed for refills/cleaning/maintenance. This machine comes equipped with a Mavea water filter which will maintain a pure taste by filtering the water in 4 stages to remove impurities/scale.

AUTOMATIC CLEANING WITH SELF-RINSE CYCLE
The digital display provides reminders for routine maintenance and users can easily program the machine for a self-rinse cycle for upkeep to give the machine the longest life possible.
