Gaggia – A mummy blogger’s review

I have had a few coffee mornings round mine over the last few weeks. My husband’s best mate left off his beer on playstation night (yep really!!) to have a coffee too. I’ve been serving up cappucinos at breakfast no less. What is going on in our house?

Well the gorgeous PR for Gaggia sent me one to review….take a look at this………

gaggia - a mummy blogger's review  

Isn’t she beautiful? She’s actually a Gaggia Espresso Colour. See how I’ve referred to her as a she as you might a lovely car. This product is so sleek and elegant you get quite enamoured! This is what it can do.

  • Gaggia Espresso Colour comes with coffee filters for 1 & 2 cups of ground coffee, and a special filter for ESE (easy serve espresso) pods,
  • The steamer attachment rotates for easy access to froth milk in seconds.
  • It delivers hot water for tea 
  • Anti drip feature of Gaggia Espresso Colour stops dispensing immediately for an accurate measure of espresso while the reservoir is located in the back of the machine, so all you need to do is pull it straight up to remove it

Put simply, it makes lovely coffee easily and quickly in your own home. Cool.

What are the benefits?

  • As a busy mum nudging 40 some mornings a good coffee just gives me that zip I need to get moving. This makes a lovely start to the day and fills my house with the most lovely aroma. 
  • A good coffee with freinds is always lovely but coffee shops can be boring for little ones so I would much rather have friends round to play. The Gaggia means I can be an excellent hostess!

I do think it makes a beautiful addition to a kitchen too and if you are a coffee lover itwill bring you real pleasure. Currently retails on Amazon at £192.49

Note to self

Coffee out is expensive.  Okay the Gagia is a bit of a luxury item but if 5 of you had 2 coffees at a nice coffee shop you would only need to do this 10 x to have bought the machine! (I am so trying to justify a purchase!)

    I can’t even function until I’ve had a coffee in the morning, and the headaches by mid-afternoon if I don’t… I’ve got a nespresso pod machine which is great, but I do miss the flexibility of a proper espresso machine and all that bean, grind, tamp pour lark.

    Not sure where you live but if you can find a Gaggia outlet shop you can save quite a bit on new and reconditioned machines. There’s one at Junction 32 in Castleford which I just have to avoid altogether. Far too dangerous 🙂
