It was one man's determined quest for the perfect espresso in 1930s Milan that gave birth to one of Italy's most iconic brands. For more than half a century, Gaggia has been supplying both bars and homes with innovative, state-of-the-art coffee machines. Beautiful, timeless products inspired by the fashion, design and culture of the day – as well as the inherent Italian passion for la dolce vita. From the crema layer to the crème de la crème of coffee machines.




On 5 September 1938, Milan coffee bartender Achille Gaggia (born 1895) files patent No. 365726 for a steam-free coffee machine, heralding the modern age of espresso. Unlike its predecessors, Gaggia's design uses a revolutionary piston mechanism which forces water through the coffee grounds at high pressure – it takes 15 seconds to produce a single espresso shot. It's believed the idea for the piston mechanism came to Gaggia after he observed the engine of an American army jeep which used a hydraulic system.


Achille Gaggia’s 1938 patent becomes a reality and Gaggia starts producing its first coffee machine for use in bars: the Classic. Its unique piston mechanism produces crema – a natural layer of coffee oils resembling foam – on the surface of the coffee. It makes Gaggia’s espressos unlike anything else, giving the diminutive drink a more intense aroma and flavour. Gaggia installs his machines in bars around Milan accompanied by huge signs in the window saying caffé crema di caffe naturale (coffee cream from natural coffee). And the espresso craze begins...


The rest is just history, pass the coffee.
