Free shipping on all orders over $99 or more.
Includes a 6-Month Limited Warranty.
The Gaggia Anima is a super-automatic espresso machine that wraps over 75 years of espresso making experience in an elegant design that blends modernity and tradition. With a simple and intuitive programming menu, and time tested innovations that enhance the quality of your brewing experience, the Anima yearns to make a barista out of you.
The Anima brews with a powerful 15 bar pump and Gaggia's innovative removable brew group. There are two dedicated drink buttons located on the front of the machine for espresso and espresso lungo and each can be programmed to your liking. The Gaggia Optiaroma system lets you brew using 6.5 - 11.5 grams of coffee (in five increments). You can also adjust brew temperature (Min/177.5 °F, Med/182.9 °F, Max/184.5 °F), beverage volume, and pre-infusion. These settings can then be saved, allowing you to brew a drink to your exact specifications at the push of a button.
Coffee is ground fresh for every brew cycle with the built-in ceramic burr grinder that can be set to one of five settings depending on the roast of your beans. The machine is also equipped with the Gaggia Adapting system which adjusts the grinding process to make sure that the correct amount of coffee is ground for your espresso. Should you prefer to use pre-ground coffee instead, the grinder can be bypassed entirely using the bypass doser to fill the brew group directly.
To prepare specialty milk drinks, the chrome plated Pannarello style steam wand injects air directly into your milk to produce rich, velvety milk foam. The steam wand can also be used to dispense hot water for drinks like a Cafe Americano or hot tea.
Cleaning and maintenance of the machine is made easy thanks to the removable brew group and automatic descaling cycle. Simply remove the brew group and rinse to prevent the buildup of coffee and oils to protect the performance and longevity of your machine. After idling for 1 hour, the Anima enters a (-1 W) standby mode to conserve energy.
Each Gaggia Anima ships with the following accessory included:
- Measuring Spoon
Each individual drink button on the Gaggia Anima can be programmed with your preferred beverage volume and strength and can be set to one of three brew temperatures (Min/177.5 °F, Med/182.9 °F, Max/184.5 °F). The Anima has dedicated buttons for bean-to-cup brewing of espresso and espresso lungo.
With the Optiaroma system you can select between 6.5 - 11.5 grams of coffee to be ground per brew. There are five strength settings in total and you can program your preferred strength to have the Anima brew your perfect espresso with the mere push of a button.
Pannarello Steam Wand
A Gaggia innovation, the Pannarello style steam wand simplifies the milk frothing process by injecting air directly into you milk to create rich, velvety milk foam perfect for lattes and cappuccinos. To stop adding air while frothing, simple submerge the wand's air intake hole in your milk. The steam wand can also be used to dispense hot water for drinks like cafe americanos and hot tea.
Grinder and Bypass Doser
The Gaggia Anima is equipped with a high quality 100% ceramic burr grinder that evenly grinds beans with minimal heat transfer. The grinder can be dialed to one of five fineness settings and uses the Gaggia Adapting System to adjust the grinding process to ensure that the selected quantity of ground coffee is used for your espresso regardless of the blend you're using. In addition to its robust grinding capabilities, the Anima also features a bypass doser which allows you to fill the brew group directly with pre-ground coffee should you be entertaining guests who prefer decaf coffee.
Water and Coffee Capacity
The Anima's water reservoir holds up to 60oz of water while the bean hopper has a total capacity of 8.8oz of whole bean coffee. The water reservoir can also be outfitted with a Mavea water filtration system to remove impurities for better tasting drinks and improved longevity of your machine.
Drip Tray and Dreg Box
The Anima has an ample 24oz drip tray that collects water from inside of the machine as well as rinse water from the spouts and other external sources. The internal dreg box can hold up to 15 pucks of spent coffee before needing to be emptied.
Removable Brew Group
At the heart of the machine is Gaggia's patented removable brew group. The brew group tamps the ground coffee automatically for a perfect extraction every time. For ease of cleaning and maintenance, the brew group can be removed and rinsed to protect the longevity and performance of your machine.
Descaling and Maintenance
The Gaggia Anima is programmed with an automatic descaling cycle that can be run at set intervals depending on the hardness of your water. Additionally, the machine will alert you via the LCD display when additional maintenance is required.
Low-Energy Standby Mode
After one hour of idle time, the Anima will enter a low energy (-1 W) standby mode to reduce power consumption.
