Owning the Gaggia Valesca

When the Gaggia Velasca arrived in our office, we were struck by its looks. The matte-black plastic housing and the curved design that Gaggia is known for combine for a chic espresso machine like no other. The Velasca delivers espressos and espresso lungos at the press of a button, both of which are adjustable in terms of strength to ensure a perfect result in the cup every time. The ceramic burr grinder can be dialed in across ten settings, or avoided entirely by way of the bypass doser. Gaggia’s specially designed pannarello wand aerates the milk in your pitcher for you, so that you can focus on the delicious drink to come. Simply press the steam button and wait half a minute for the machine to get to temp after brewing.

The automatic rinse cycle and Gaggia's removable brew unit make cleaning and maintaining the Velasca easier than ever. Pull out the brew unit for a quick rinse in your sink to keep your coffee tasting fresh and your machine functioning properly. For descaling, simply program your water hardness into the machine and the Velasca will alert you when it's time to run a descaling cycle. When not in use for an extended period of time, the machine will enter into a low energy standby mode to preserve power. This machine has class. More than that, it makes one piping hot cup of espresso. For a step up in capacity and one-touch brewing and steaming capability, take a look at the Velasca Prestige; it has an integrated milk container for automatic frothing.

  • Programmable Espresso Brewing

    The intuitive display makes it easier than ever to produce an espresso or espresso lungo with just one push. Using the Aroma Strength selector, you can choose between one of five strength settings, or brew with pre-ground espresso using the bypass doser. You can also adjust coffee volume and temperature for barista quality coffee with all of the flavor and none of the attitude.

  • Ceramic Burr Grinder

    The Velasca comes equipped with a ceramic burr grinder that’s durable, precise, and has minimal heat transfer during grinding. It has 10 settings ranging from extra fine for crema rich espresso to coarser grinds ideal for long coffees. Skip the grinder entirely by way of the bypass doser when you want to brew pre-ground coffee; it’s great for the occasional decaf.

  • Frothing and Hot Water

    Gaggia's innovative Pannarello steam wand automatically aerates milk to produce rich milk foam. Thanks to the rapid heating boiler, just push the "Steam" button and in less than 30 seconds you'll be texturing milk to your preferred temperature and consistency. For tea and cocoa drinkers, the wand also doubles as a hot water spout with its own dedicated button.

    gridimage-3
  • Automated Cleaning and Maintenance

    Cleaning the Valesca is simple. The brew group can be removed for hand cleaning, and the machine has a descaling cycle pre-programmed in. Use the included water test strip to program in your water hardness and the Velasca will alert you when it’s time to descale. Install the Mavea Intenza in the 1.6 L reservoir to preserve coffee taste and improve your machine’s longevity.
