Gaggia For Illy Plus Single Serve

Gaggia For Illy Plus Single Serve - Features

Gaggia teams up with Illy on this single-serve espresso machine, to deliver authentic beverages using the famous iperEspresso capsules (not included). This attractive machine features a glossy exterior made of durable ABS plastic and straightforward push-button controls. Engraved with an Illy flower design, the front panel has a unique cup holder and drip tray that can be positioned two different ways -- lowered to accommodate tall glasses or raised to fit smaller cups.

Despite its compact size, the Gaggia for Illy Plus still packs a punch, with a 15-bar pump and stainless steel boiler. To make your favorite beverage, simply insert an iperEspresso capsule into the machine and press the brew button. Fresh espresso will be poured directly into your cup! Hassle-free and low maintenance, the Gaggia for Illy Plus automatically disposes spent capsules into a dedicated container that holds up to 12 capsules.

Brewing Capabilities
The Gaggia for Illy Plus has dedicated on/off, cup-volume, and steam controls. The programmable cup-volume button allows you to adjust the amount of espresso brewed, ensuring the perfect cup every time.

Steaming and Frothing
While many single-serve machines do not have steaming and frothing capabilities, the Gaggia for Illy Plus has an integrated pannarello steam wand and hot water dispenser, making milk-based beverages and teas a breeze to prepare. The wand can swivel side to side, to allow for easy cup placement; it also has a no-burn grip for your safety.
