Is this what you need when you buy Gaggia Velasca Espresso Machine?
With humble beginnings as a cafe owner in Milan, Achille Gaggia s ingenuity and passion for coffee inspired him to invent a new way to brew espresso without the use of steam. That vision led to the creation of the Lampo device which produced the characteristic crema which has since become the hallmark of quality espresso.
The Gaggia Velasca is a powerful super-automatic espresso and coffee machine, perfect for brewing espresso, coffee, cappuccinos, and lattes at home.

Customer reviewsAbsolutely the Best Espresso Cap Machine ever
I loved everything about this machine. It is easy to use, makes super drinks, It cleans itself, no washing baskets every time you make a beverage. It allows you to make one drink after another so you can enjoy a beverage with a friend with no lapse of time. I had ordered the Breville machine because it looked so great , but it wasn t great at all. It did not heat well, grind well, steam well, and needed continuous cleaning. It was impossible to make consecutive beverages without cleaning the entire machine first, then going on to brew the next beverage. I sent it back and got the Gaggia instead. This machine is wonderful. I highly recommend this product
