The Gaggia Velasca is a powerful and convenient super-automatic espresso machine. Its low profile and high programmability make it right at home in any kitchen. 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. LOW PROFILE: The Velasca is right at home under cabinets with its front loading water reservoir. At under 14 inches tall, minimal clearance is needed to fit it under your cupboards. PROGRAMMABLE: The Gaggia Velasca drink buttons can be programmed with your preferred beverage volume, strength, and temperature. You are also able to choose between using whole bean or pre-ground coffee. CAPACITY: The Velasca has a 54oz removable water reservoir and a 10.5oz bean hopper. The internal dreg bin can hold up to 10 spent pucks of 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 Velasca will enter a low energy (-1 W) standby mode to reduce power consumption.

A nice machine. Easy to set up. Just follow the directions. Makes a really decent espresso (using Lavazza beans). Uses a bit more water than my previous machine (an older Saeco) as it cleans on both start up and shut down. But that means you don’t have to clean the brew group as often. Seems to use a bit less coffee to make a stronger and better tasting cup. Definitely an upgrade.

Bought this and the no bean light kept coming on … Bought this and the no bean light kept coming on when the bin was full. Contacted company and was told you can’t use dark roast beans( espresso beans). Why would you buy an espresso machine if you have to use regular beans and cant use espresso beans. Company would not take it back.
