  • Excellent
    A really good coffee machine ITALIAN
    No long waits. Standby mode is really energy efficient, and warming from standby to ready-to-bridge takes about 50 seconds, after a whole night on standby.
    Previously, I used a semi-automatic machine plus grinder, which required a lot of work, but the result was hardly better than the Brera.
    Clean Nobody is terribly simple: take out and brewing mechanism and rinse under running, tepid water.
    That said, the coffee: absolutely wonderful.
  • Poor
    My copy match certainly not other people's experiences. The mill grinds, but the machine hangs, then approximately every fourth time in the cut and I have to press again and it grinds fresh coffee. It becomes unnecessarily expensive copper. No other help than the Council to clean and test other beans, which I of course have done (bought it also in Germany for about 3000 :-).

    I also think it produces slightly weaker drink than other machines using the same amount of beans and water (of course with the same beans). You can get an ok espresso, but not a good "cup of coffee" that I get from such a Jura.

    Had a Gaggia classic before this (not automatic), was much tastier espresso in it I think. But the taste is of course subjective.

    If you get a good example (as others apparently seems to have), so is it worth its 3000, not absolute, not 6-7000. Buy rather a Jura then.

    Curiosities: it is manufactured by Philips Saeco.
  • Excellent
    Very pleased with both the coffee and handling. Smoothly thought straight through - water tank and sump tank operation makes beans filled from the top. Excellent espresso! Cappucinon and caffe latte is top quality if you use the Latte Art-milk. Build quality feels solid except for the knob to the water vapor is plastigt. Recommended very hot. Bought mine from Germany for 3100: - including shipping - a bargain!
  • Perfect
    Brilliant product, makes great coffee! Fast and reliable. Have had it for several months now and I have not found anything to complain about yet.
    For 4000 - the Complete was the real chap but this machine's real competition is probably really in 6000-8000: - segment.
  • Excellent
    Amazing coffee for money (managed to get the machine for just over SEK 4000)!

    Plus: Very fast heating, steam milk and brew espresso with about ten seconds apart, no long waits. Standby mode is really energy efficient, and warming from standby to ready-to-brew takes about 50 sec, after a whole night on standby.

    That said, the coffee: absolutely wonderful. Drinking lots Nespresso before, and can only conclude that there is a BIG difference between pod coffee and espresso rikigt, to the latter's advantage, while the work needed to brew the coffee and maintain the machine is essentially the same between Nespresso and Gaggia.

    Cons: Would have been nice if everything was metal, not just the front. Of course, had it done machine bulkier and heavier (and more expensive), but then it had also received the maximum amount of stars from me. With that said, it gives an upscale feel and look absolutely not plasticky out.
