Giovanni Achille Gaggia applied for a patent for the first modern steamless coffee machine in 1938 for use in his own coffee bar and just a decade later, the Gaggia company was founded. It quickly started to focus on the domestic market with home espresso machines, and its reputation in that space continues decades later.
Perhaps best known for the iconic Classic, the Gaggia brand is recognised and respected the world over. All Gaggia coffee machines, including a wide variety of espresso and fully automatic machines, are still manufactured in Milan, making it a truly Italian espresso machine company.
