Gaggia Anima Black Super-Automatic Espresso Machine
The Gaggia Anima Black is a super-automatic espresso machine that encompasses the tradition of espresso making with modern technology.
The Anima Black brews with a powerful 15 bar pump and has a removable brew group, automatic descaling cycle, and stand by mode to conserve energy- making cleaning and maintenance easy.
There are 2 dedicated beverage buttons on the front of the machine for espresso and espresso lungo. This machine allows you to adjust and save settings for the brew temperature, beverage volume and pre-infusion.
The Gaggia Anima Black features a built-in ceramic burr grinder that has 5 settings. If you decide to use pre-ground coffee (decaf, different roast) you can use the bypass doser to fill the brew group directly.
This machine prepares specialty milk beverages using a chrome plated Pannarello steam wand which injects air into your milk creating a rich and silky foam. This same steam wand can be used to dispense hot water for tea and café Americano.
