The Gaggia Anima is the first machine in the Anima series. The Anima is a super-automatic espresso machine that wraps over 75 years of espresso making experience in an elegant design that blends modernity and tradition. PANNARELLO STEAM WAND: A Gaggia innovation, the Pannarello style steam wand simplifies the milk frothing process by injecting air directly into your milk to create rich, velvety milk foam perfect for lattes and cappuccinos. To stop adding air while frothing, simple submerge the wand’s air intake hole in your milk. The steam wand can also be used to dispense hot water for drinks like cafe americanos and hot tea. SLEEK DESIGN: The Anima sets itself apart from the plastic housing found on machines in the same price range with striking stainless steel front paneling. The machine is has a slim profile (less than 9 inches wide), intuitive buttons, and an LED display. PROGRAMMABLE: The Gaggia Anima drink buttons can be programmed with your preferred beverage volume, strength, pre-infusion, and temperature (Min/177.5 °F, Med/182.9 °F, Max/184.5 °F). You are also able to choose between using whole bean or pre-ground coffee. LARGE CAPACITY: The Anima has a 60oz removable water reservoir and an 8.8oz bean hopper. The drip tray can hold up to 24oz of water and the internal dreg bin can hold up to 15 pucks of spent coffee. EASY MAINTENANCE: The machine features a removable brew unit as well as an automatic rinse and descale cycle. LOW-ENERGY STANDBY MODE: After one hour of idle time, the Anima will enter a low energy (-1 W) standby mode to reduce power consumption.

Better then Starbucks Make sure you read all the instructions for this machine and clean regularly. Usually there is product failure because the machine isn’t maintained properly. I don’t use pre-ground beans for making espresso on a regular basis but it can do this. Be careful to only put in one scoop at a time for the pre-ground stuff. I made that mistake when trying to make an espresso and overfilled the machine. So happy with this machine!
Looking forward to morning coffee again Had this machine a month now and am very happy it is part of our morning routine. If you take care of this machine as the instructions suggest, this machine will serve flawlessly for many years, I believe. The key is to clean the machine weekly per the instructions, and lub the brew center monthly. If anything goes wrong I’ll come back and edit this review, but for today, this was a very worthwhile purchase.
