Gaggia Brera Bean to Cup Review

A high-end Italian coffee machine brand, it’s no secret that Brera are renowned for producing the best commercial machines on the market. Now, thanks to the introduction of the Gaggia model, one of the best bean to cup machines in the world is available to purchase. It’s never been easier to make rich and smooth espressos from the comfort of your own home whenever you like.

Key Features

  • Incredibly compact, the Brera would undoubtedly fit into any kitchen comfortably. It wouldn’t look out of place in a modern or classic styled room thanks to its retro styling.
  • As a Bean-to-Cup machine; the Brera comes equipped with an impressive built in grinder. This is adjustable if you wish to produce a finer or coarser grind, simply toggle the dial.
  • Setting up the Brera couldn’t be easier, the machine comes with a small screen that features clear symbols and indicators for you to follow. In total, four buttons adorn the machine: Power, espresso, full cup and strength of brew (3 stages).
  • A milk foaming wand is mounted on the front of the machine and is flexible enough for use with a fairly sizeable jug. However, we recommend a smaller vessel if you have one available.


Despite being a high-end model, the Gaggia is surprisingly affordable, available for around £379.99 from Amazon. Bean-to-cup machines promote a more authentic coffee experience, inline with the taste you would expect from Starbucks or Costa. These types of machines always command a premium mark-up but are well worth the investment.


The Gaggia Bera is a simple to use bean-to-cup machine with sophisticated peripherals and an iconic design. It allows easy access to the water tank and coffee grind waste via the front of the machine.

Gaggia Brera is the bean-to-cup, super-automatic espresso machine that delivers supreme coffee, all from the comfort of your own kitchen. Compact and light, this espresso machine boasts electronic controls, an LED display, a 250g bean chopper and a 15 bar pressure pump. A truly barista-like experience!

Its integrated ceramic coffee grinder gives you the freedom to choose from five different ground coffee options. The easy-to-remove brewing unit, stainless steel boiler and 1.2 litre water tank ensures a super-automatic espresso machine is easy to clean.
