Owning the Gaggia Brera

The Gaggia Brera is a compact super-automatic with automated brewing capabilities and easy frothing with its integrated pannarello wand, which is specially designed to aerate milk independently of the user. We like the Brera for being both easy to use and reliable, producing shot after shot to our personal specifications. It’s even kind enough to walk you through descaling it, when the time comes, and the brew group is removable and hand washable for quick clean up. The Brera, much like the Gaggia Classic, is known for being a great value in its class, and it’s flexible, too. The ceramic grinder has five adjustments to accommodate a variety of coffees, and the integrated bypass doser allows for pre-ground coffee brewing.

Programming espresso and lungo buttons on the Brera couldn’t be simpler with its easily navigable LED display. Coffee aroma, strength, and volume are all customizable for both drinks, and, for a double shot, press twice for back-to-back brewing. Gaggia’s Rapid Steam Technology allows for immediate steaming following each shot, and the pannarello wand automatically aerates the milk to perfect cappuccino texture. For added control, a latte art wand is available; and for added convenience, the auto-frothing cappuccinatore can be used in the wand’s place. We think the Gaggia Brera is the best there is for the price point, and we think you will too. If you need a step up in capacity, the Gaggia Velasca is an excellent alternative; or, for absolute control over brewing and steaming, take a look at the semi-automatic Gaggia Classic.

  • Programmable Espresso Brewing

    Gaggia’s Optidose function allows you to customize the aroma of your coffee, choosing between light, medium, and strong. Both espresso and café lungo beverage volumes are programmable, and the Brera remembers your preferences for future brews.

  • Rapid Steam Technology

    The Brera comes equipped with Rapid Steam Technology, which translates to quick heat up times and robust brewing and steaming operations. You’ll be able to steam and brew back-to-back with ease, thanks to the Rapid Steam feature.

    gridimage-2
  • Ceramic Burr Grinder

    The Brera comes equipped with a ceramic burr grinder to ensure grind consistency and reduce heat transfer, resulting in flavorful and aromatic coffee. For your convenience, the Gaggia Adapting System automatically adjusts grind time and RPM to deliver the desired coffee quantity, regardless of whether you’re using light, medium, or dark beans.

    gridimage-3
  • Water Filter Compatible

    Install the Mavea Intenza water filter in the Brera’s 1.2 L water tank to improve coffee clarity and ensure your machine’s longevity. It has a four-stage filtration system which removes impurities and prevents scale buildup. Filter use and regular upkeep, made easy by the step-by-step descaling walkthrough and removable brew group, will keep the Brera’s lifespan long.
