Espresso Machine, Single and Double and ESE Pod Filter Baskets, Coffee Tamper, 7g Scoop
What's Not Included
Among other impressive features, the Gaggia Baby Twin Espresso Machine comes with an included coffee stamper, a 7-gram scoop, and three filters. The filters are for making one and two cups, and a third is included for use with pre-ground pods. You'll love how intuitive the electronic control panel is, but just in case, we do include the instructions. Most importantly, the trademark of the Gaggia brand, is the solid brass filter holder and group finished in shiny chrome. This is necessary, as it creates a perfect seal to keep the procedure clean and produce the most reliable, creamy espresso. But perhaps the best innovation is the handy dosing device that will remember how strong you like your coffee and prepare it thusly. Enjoy.

Portafilter Handle This portafilter is designed like a commercial machine and works in the same way. The coffee is ground fine and tamped (pressed) firmly into place. The size of the portafilter is also the same as a commercial machine. Is has a large diameter (58 mm) so that the water is distributed evenly over a wide surface area. The portafilter is made up of two parts, the handle and the filter holder. The handle is made of high quality plastic. The heavy chrome plated brass filter holder keeps the temperature stable throughout the entire brewing process, producing a quality cup of espresso.
Commercial Brewing Group This is the portion of the machine that the portafilter locks into. It is made of chrome plated marine brass which provides a superior brewing environment through maximum heat stability and component longevity.
Boiler The Gaggia boiler system is very unique. It is designed of highly conductive aluminum with two heating elements. The heating elements are imbedded into the exterior sides of the boiler, providing even heat distribution. Having the highest wattage system available, incorporated into a low volume boiler (3.5 ounces) provides excellent temperature stability and will heat up quicker.
High Quality Controls with Temperature Ready Light The Baby Twin has three rocker arm switches. The one on the top is the main power switch. The middle one is the steam switch that when turned on, will heat the boiler to steam temperature. The bottom switch operates the pump and is known as the brew switch. To start the brewing process just turn on the switch, wait until you have reached your desired volume and then turn of the switch. There is an indicator light that is illuminated whenever the boiler is up to operating temperature.
Hot Water Dispenser Hot water is right at your fingertips. Just turn on the pump (brew) switch and open the steam knob. Hot water will start to stream out.
Improved Turbo Frother Steam Wand The Baby Twin comes equipped with a new Turbo Frothing steam wand. The new design makes great froth every time with no problems.
Water Reservoir The large removable 64-ounce reservoir can be refilled from the top any time during the operation for an endless supply of coffee or steam.
ESE Pod Capable Comes ready to use with pods or ground coffee. Use the single shot filter basket with Easy Serve Espresso (ESE) pods. Pods are single serve prepackaged shots that are designed to be quick and clean.
Thermostat and Safety Switches The Baby Twin has three temperature controls. There are two thermostats and one high limit. There is one thermostat for maintaining brewing temperature and one for maintaining steaming temperature. The high limit will turn off the power to the boiler in the event of a malfunction this will prevent the boiler from over heating.
Housing Construction The entire housing is made of a high-impact, heat resistant polycarbonate. The drip grate is made of stainless steel.
