Notes to Editors

With over 60 years of Italian espresso heritage, Gaggia, the number one choice of coffee machine in Italy, is re-launching in the UK with a range of original and new Automatic and Manual domestic coffee machines. Founder, Achille Gaggia, applied for a patent for the first modern steamless coffee machine on September 5, 1938, to be used commercially in his coffee bar. The machine forced water to flow over the coffee grounds at a high pressure, producing the 'crema' that is unique to espresso.  Since the introduction of the first domestic machine in 1977, Gaggia has been synonymous with authentic Italian tradition and culture while its range of iconic machines provides consumers with a professional coffee experience at home.

 

The Gaggia Accademia is available from September 2010 at selected department stores, online and leading independent cookshops.  RRP £1,400.
