The middle entry in Gaggia’s Anima family, the Anima Deluxe has the ability to brew an espresso, long coffee, or froth milk on demand. You can dial in your preferred beverage strength (6.5 – 11.5g) or use pre-ground coffee thanks to the variable brew group which can be removed for easy cleaning. You can further customize your drinks with the three available temperature settings (Min/177.5 °F, Med/182.9 °F, Max/184.5 °F) accessible via the programming menu or by adjusting the 100% ceramic burr grinder to one of five degrees of fineness.

To make life easier, the milk is automatically frothed by a device called the Cappuccinatore and dispensed into your cup. When brewing for large groups, you can custom program the volume of the espresso and espresso lungo buttons to brew to your exact specifications. The water reservoir holds up to 60oz at a time and you can brew up to 15 drinks before emptying the internal dreg drawer. The bean hopper can likewise hold up to 8.8oz of whole bean coffee.

The Anima Deluxe sets itself apart from the plastic housing found on machines in the same price range with striking stainless steel front paneling. Like the other Anima machines, you’ll appreciate the slim profile (

Good espresso, lousy instructions This is my first super automatic espresso machine (however I have had about 10 manual or semi-automatics) and wasn’t sure what kind of results I would get. Happy to say that the machine works as advertised. While the results are not quite as good as with the non-automatics, it still make a good espresso. The only problem (and complaint) I have is with the cleaning and serviceing manuel. The best I can say about it is it’s manuel is vauge and confussing. As an engineer I was able to figure out…

Nice automatic machine Very happy with this machine. The sale price convinced me to try it after 9 happy years with a similarly priced Saeco. First few cups I thought I had made a big mistake but over a few days and some adjustments – the key one being to adjust the grinder to make it finer – and the coffee is as good as my old machine. Looks great too!

Maybe it was bad luck, but… Let me begin by saying my first automatic espresso machine was a Gaggia Platinum that I loved hard for four years. It produced consistently good coffee and I used it a few times every day. When the grinder went, I decided to upgrade to a new Gaggia. I was hesitant to purchase a new model, but the reviews I found were good.
