The Gaggia Anima Prestige is now available, offering one of the best prices for integrated milk foaming with an easy to use and clean milk carafe
Finally available in Canada, the Gaggia Anima Prestige is a high end milk-integrated machine from renowned Italian manufacturer Gaggia. This multi-featured bean to cup machine adds in an easy-maintenance milk carafe to the already powerful Anima espresso brewing formula. The powerful 15 bar pump, combined with Gaggia's trademark removable brew group, means that this machine is built from the ground up to be high quality and long lasting.
The Anima Prestige also incorporates other features from higher end Gaggia machines, like the 5 setting ceramic burr grinder, guaranteed to grind beans consistently and coolly. You can control more than the grinds, with a programmable temperature feature (177-184F), coffee strength with the Optiaroma dosing system (6.5-11.5 grams), and set pre-infusion times. You can even brew coffee already ground elsewhere with the Ground Coffee Bypass feature, perfect for friends who prefer decaf or flavoured coffees, without tainting your machine's grinding unit!
The Gaggia Anima Prestiage is equipped with 2 high capacity containers for water (1.75L) and coffee beans (250gr). This allows for many drinks served before requiring a refill.
ONE TOUCH CAPPUCCINO
The smartly designed removable milk carafe makes incorporating milk drinks (lattes, cappuccinos) a breeze. Just press a button and your espresso is brewed, and frothed milk added to the top automatically! Even better, the carafe is removable, meaning you can store it in the fridge when not in use. Lastly, it's easy to clean, just push the Clean button and hot steam shoots out from inside the machine, cleaning all milk touching surfaces.
REMOVABLE PATENTED BREWING GROUP
The heart of the machine, and a Gaggia-invented standard. The removable brew group extends the life of the machine by allowing you to clean it manually without having to take it in for servicing.
CERAMIC BURR GRINDER
Anima is equipped with a robust 100% ceramic grinder that turns beans into a fine powder and extracts maximum flavours, without ever tasting burnt. It has 5 different settings of grind that grant you the finest grind for a full-bodied espresso or a coarser grind for a lighter tasting coffee.
PROGRAMMABLE DISPENSING SYSTEM
Each drink can be fully customized and you can store your preferred settings per coffee and milk beverages for future brews, such as strength, temperature and length of extraction.
You can select and store in memory the amount of coffee ground required for your perfect Espresso: 5 options available, ranging from 6.5-11.5 grams, to adjust the coffee strength to your taste.
A programmable amount of wetting that occurs between the first shower of hot water and the brewing process moisturises the coffee grounds, extracting the full bouquet of aromas, giving your Espresso a unique body and taste.
GAGGIA ADAPTIVE SYSTEM
The innovative technology of the Gaggia Adapting System adjusts the grinding process, making sure the selected quantity of ground coffee is used for your espresso, whatever blend you choose. Just like a professional barista.
