Gaggia S.p.A is an Italian manufacturer of coffee machines, especially espresso and cappuccino machines.
Gaggia produces espresso machines, as well as accessories for coffee lovers, ranging from classic manual machines to the innovative super-automatic models recently added to the line. These machines are manufactured in Milan at the Robecco sul Naviglio factory.
The founder, Achille Gaggia, applied for a patent (patent number 365726) for the first modern steamless coffee machine on September 5, 1938, to be used commercially in his coffee bar. The machine forced water to flow over the coffee grounds at a high pressure, producing the so called crema foam that is unique to espresso.
Gaggia was founded in 1947. In the beginning Gaggio only produced machines for commercial use.
In 1977 the company started producing machines for home use, which has become its dominant area of production at present.
