Gaggia Accademia RI9702/04 Bean to Cup Espresso and Cappuccino Coffee Machine, Very pleased with this machine and the coffee it makes

Bean-to-Cup Coffee Machines
1

I have experienced this machine for 7 months and it makes a steady mug of coffee/latte/cappuccino time after time. Before getting i read through all the reviews and the greatest grievance was the temperature of the coffee. This is not fast coffee where you use boiling drinking water from the kettle but the real mccoy and the resolution is so easy. I bought tall glass latte mugs and before earning the coffee i boil a kettle and fill the mugs with very hot h2o and allow them stand for a whilst, final result sizzling coffee or you can use the steam wand. The only slight downside is the inner drip tray, just after two mugs it demands emptying, probably this is a little something gaggia could address in building long run devices. A person factor extra that amazed me was the build, the machine is so strong. All in all a experienced on the lookout and constant machine.

I have noticed and crimson the past critiques and all of them ended up detrimental. Com (american) and it was a mixed bag. I made the decision to give it test for the reason that it is as good as the saeco xelsis but at a substantially less expensive rate and if i do not like it i will returne. And i am glad i did select it due to the fact it would make on of the most effective coffee at any time. And it is very hot not cold as some individuals saidi definitely like this machine.

  • Twin boiler reduces the waiting time between coffee production and steam delivery to just a few seconds while the ceramic grinder retains the purity of the coffee aroma by grinding as coarse or as fine as you prefer
  • Features touch screen digital display, which provides alerts and programming options for the menu language, water hardness, acoustic alerts, water filter replacement and rinsing cycle
  • Raise or lower the drip tray with the simple touch of a button; the stainless steel boiler uses rapid steam technology to assure easy brewing and steaming with its innovative backlit touch ring control panel
  • Just press one of the 7 pre-set beverage buttons brews them in a few seconds, making it very easy to produce your favourite coffee; with the espresso plus system, you can adjust the body and aroma of your coffee to suit your taste
  • Heating element beneath the plate provides efficient warming of your cups, and easily accommodates four coffee cups so you can have your coffee fresh and warm

Fab coffee every single time, but h2o tank and drip tray to little have to m/t and fill h2o tank two times a working day. Only two coffee drinkers in house.

There’s quite a few one star reviews of this machine, but they seem to relate to being not working right out of the box. There is some work to be done to get the machine set up for the first time, but once you’ve done that, this machine seems to be unstoppable. We’ve used it to serve way more coffees than it is classed for–we’ve done about 10,000 coffees (split amongst the various types) in the 6 months we’ve had this machine. I’ve posted a picture of the cycle counters in the user images. It has only error’ed on us once: a ‘water priming circuit’ failure message. This was a completely blocked boiler problem that was not prevented by using the descaling cycle regularly with the gaggia descaler; we’ve switched to a third-party descaler and all seems well again. Working on this machine was a dream–it is very easy to disassemble, and all parts are labelled well, including voltages. My only complaint is that the drip tray fills up rapidly, so you end up emptying it very often. Otherwise, a good little workhorse.

Excellent coffee and excellent machine. Excellent coffee machine initially bought it and the drinks have been cold which can be effortlessly edited in the settings to get pipping sizzling only criticism is that it sat for all around 2 mouths and there for leaks water out of an o ring or gasket however i have not dug further to see what is the make a difference but.

Great coffee machine first got it and the drinks were cold which can be easily edited in the settings to get pipping hot only complaint is that it sat for around 2 mouths and there for leaks water out of an o ring or gasket however i haven’t dug deeper to see what’s the matter yet.

Italian engineering and great coffee. If you like italian engineering then this is the machine for you. I have been a gaggis customer for 10 years and have had several ‘bean to cup’ automatic coffee machines. Without doubt, the gaggia accademia is the best by far. It delivers quality coffee exactly to your specific requirements and is self-cleaning. It has a ‘proper’ steam wand as well as an automatic cappuccino programme so you can choose to be a barrista or take the easy routesure, it has it’s foibles like anything from italy, but not only does it look super in the kitchen it sparks joy every time i use it. Be sure to take the time to understand how it works and you will not be disappointed.

The milk goes bad within one day back in the fridge. I’ve been using this machine for over a year and have not had any problems with it not working properly, however i have several complaints. 1) the first problem is it is impossible to get a truly hot drink out of it without using the steaming wand. Even when fully heated, everything is luke warm. 2) another issue is they boast the automatic cleaning of the milk carafe as a plus, but even it isn’t suppose to, it seems to blow hot steam down into the carafe & the milk goes bad within one day back in the fridge. 3) i am a single person who literally drinks one cappuccino and one espresso a day and it makes me empty the dredge & water tray every other use, and the water tank is small and it seems i am constantly having to refill it. 4) last, and the most important issue i have with it is it is always bitter. ( i use jamaica blue mountain or kona, but have tried others in it). It is clean, and i have tried every temperature option, drip, grind & flow option i can find with no luck at a better tasting cup. Low temperature and bitter is just too much to take.

I was very sceptical before purchasing this product due to the reviews listed on both the amazon uk and amazon us websites, but i am pleased to say after receiving and testing the product it certainly did not disappoint. Its certainly an improvement from my old gaggia cubica manual espresso machine. Firstly the reviews mention the water tank not being very big, this isn’t wrong but do you really want gallons of water sitting in the machine for long periods of time doing nothing other than going stale?.Fresher water is better coffee. Secondly people say the machine makes you constantly empty the drip trays and internal coffee dump box, i have to say that its not as constant as people mention in some reviews but in a sense i think this is good because it means dirty water and used coffee isn’t sitting inside of the machine for a long time causing bad smells and hygiene issues. Thirdly people mention that the machine does not create a very hot drink. This is also untrue depending wether you like your mouth scalded when drinking a coffee. The milk drinks aren’t scalding but are hot enough to drink straight off the book the coffee beverages are nearly so hot you cant drink them buts thats my opinion. Tips for achieving a “hot” drink:1) let the machine do its full warm up and rinse cycle.

But given the abuse it gets that is pretty good given it is not intended for industrial use. We have used this machine in a 30 person office for three years. It has broken down twice, but given the abuse it gets that is pretty good given it is not intended for industrial use. Some of the parts are not capable of withstanding heavy handed in the office environment. Well i think it probably needs to be replaced soon, and i wouldn’t hestitate buying another one.

Very pleased with this machine and the coffee it makes. We finally settled on this machine because, although it is automatic, it can be programmed to suit your taste – stronger coffee, longer brewing, hotter water etc. We use good arabica coffee beans and generally make cappuccino or espresso – both excellent every time. The milk dispenser is a useful feature, although for large quantities of milk (latte machiato or just milk on its own) it needs to be whizzed up to a higher temperature with the steam wand – not difficult. The machine communicates well via the screen when it wants to be emptied or filled. The only slight criticism is the size of the water tank. The water is used not only for making coffee but also to clean the machine automatically, so it needs refilling fairly often. Everything has always worked perfectly and we’re very pleased with this purchase.

Excellent item, came on time and has been used now for some time. The machine was meant for use in the house but was too large so we use it in our office kitchen.

This is a top of the range machine in terms of cost and its four star rating reflects that. Overall, it’s terrific with more adjustments to coffee taste than you’ll ever need. You can also adjust the temperature of the coffee (but not the milk) and on its highest setting, it’s scalding. Given some of the comments on the heat of the end product in other reviews, i set up the machine to give maximum temperature and got a burnt tongue for my painsset up is menu driven and very easy. For each type of coffee, the amount of coffee, the strength of brew, the amount of both water and milk and the length of prebrewing are all adjustable, so it’s possible to fine tune the coffee to your own taste. For cappuccino and latte macchiato (which is what we usually call cafe latte), the milk carafe can be connected. This offers a thick foam in seconds, making a delicious drink – and it automatically cleans the pipes afterwards. When finished, just disconnect the milk carafe and put it in the fridge until next time, as long as you wash it out every couple of days or so. The coffee is hot enough to carry off the milk and still provide a hot drink.

Absolutely amazing coffee machine. Bought it yesterday and it’s so easy to set up and use. So far, the coffee is perfect. If you want to change the temperature, strength, quantity etc, it can be done at the press of a button. Don’t let the negative reviews put you off.

I have seen and red the previous reviews and all of them were negative. Com (american) and it was a mixed bag. I decided to give it try because it is as good as the saeco xelsis but at a much cheaper price and if i do not like it i will returne. And i am glad i did choose it because it makes on of the best coffee ever. And it is hot not cold as some people saidi really like this machine.

Beautiful to behold and simple to use – perfect coffee. . I have to disagree with all the reviewers who went before – this machine is almost perfect for the coffee loving home. Delivery was about 20 hours after ordering, set up took about 30 minutes and the machine delivered the first of many coffees with the minimum of fuss. It’s so easy to use even my 2 year old was showing an unhealthy interest. For us this was a replacement for a 6 year old gaggia titanium plus which had been around the block a few times. The bean hopper capacity is great, but the water tank a little lacking, however it is really easy to top up. The milk carafe is a little stiff, but i’m sure that will change with time. Auto cleaning is just wonderful. So much thought has gone into the dessign that all the little niggles of other machines have been designed out of this one. The only changes i would make would be more water capacity and to chill the milk carafe.
