When you see the words “Gaggia Titanium,” you know you can expect the very best. The Gaggia Titanium Plus stays true to its name, featuring 2 boilers so there’s no downtime between brewing and steaming, a blue LCD display, temperature control, stainless steel front panel, an automatic frothing attachment, and much more. The Titanium Plus also adds a new spin to the traditional Gaggia Titanium design with the addition of the E. Plus system: an easy-to-use knob that you can turn any time during the brewing process to change the strength of your espresso.
The Gaggia Titanium Plus is a perfect machine for not just daily use, but entertaining as well. An active coffee cup warmer will keep up to 6 demitasse cups warm, while the stainless steel-lined brew boiler and separate boiler for steam will ensure that you can make cappuccinos, lattes, and other coffee house drinks back-to-back for your guests. The included stainless steel Turbo Frother lets you manually froth or steam milk, and the Titanium Plus also comes with Gaggia’s very own patented automatic frothing attachment to make it even easier. If your guests prefer decaf, or a type of coffee other than the one in your bean hopper, the Titanium Plus also features a bypass doser. And, since the coffee spout is adjustable, you can brew into a variety of cup sizes with ease. A removable brew group, trash box, drip tray, and 60 oz water reservoir make cleaning up after large gatherings a simple and fast process. Take all of these outstanding features and house them in durable steel housing, and you have a wonderful addition to any kitchen.
Automatic Coffee Center
The Gaggia Titanium Plus has everything you need to make virtually any café-style drink in moments. Simple brewing controls and 2 different options for steaming and frothing milk put every type of drink right at your fingertips. Lattes, cappuccinos, crema coffee, even hot water for tea and hot chocolate are just a few buttons away.
Push Button Technology
Perhaps the best thing about the Gaggia Titanium Plus is its ease-of-use. With programmable brewing buttons and complete control over every aspect of your espresso coffee, you can create consistent espresso shots, morning after morning, set to your desired taste. Once programmed, all you have to do is press a button and the Titanium Plus does the rest: grinding, tamping, and brewing right into your waiting cup.
E. Plus System
To give you complete control over your espresso, the Gaggia Titanium Plus features the E. Plus system. This dial located on the front of the machine can be turned at any time to increase or decrease the water flow rate, or strength of your espresso- even while brewing. Turn it to the counterclockwise to decrease the strength, and turn it clockwise to increase the strength.
Some super automatic machines can only notify you when to perform maintenance or if the brew group or dump box is out of place through a series of blinking lights. If you prefer reading what maintenance needs to be performed in the language of your choice (English, Italian, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, or Dutch), the Titanium Plus features a cool blue LCD display. It will notify you when you need to fill the coffee bean hopper, water reservoir, or perform a cleaning or descaling cycle. It also makes programming all of the machines functions a straightforward process, so you can fully customize your espresso.
With many espresso machines, you have to wait for the boiler to reach proper steaming temperature when going from brewing to steaming. The result? Lost temperature of your espresso shot and more time that you’re stuck in the kitchen when entertaining guests. The Gaggia Titanium Plus helps eliminate this down time with 2 separate boilers: a stainless steel-lined brewing boiler and a Rapid Steam boiler just for frothing and steaming milk. Without any excess heat up and cool down time between frothing and brewing, you’ll be serving up delicious drinks in no time.
Adjustable Beverage Volume
The Gaggia Titanium Plus comes with 3 pre-programmed buttons for espresso, a normal coffee, and a caffe lungo. To change these settings to meet your very own tastes, programming is easy. Simply place a cup underneath the coffee dispenser, press, and hold the button that you want to program. The message “Progr. Quantity” will appear, and just hold the beverage button until the desired amount of coffee is dispensed into your cup, then release.
Adjustable Coffee Dosing
You can set the amount of coffee used to brew your espresso using the adjustable dosing feature. This is controlled by a knob in the bean hopper and lets you set your coffee dose to anywhere between 6 and 9 grams of coffee per shot.
Adjustable Temperature Control
Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to the temperature of their coffee. That’s why the Gaggia Titanium Plus comes with 5 different temperature settings: minimum, low, medium, high, and maximum. To change this setting, just enter the programming mode and use the arrow keys to navigate to the temperature setting of your choice.
Espresso tastes best when the coffee grounds have been slightly moistened before brewing. It brings out the aromatic oils of the beans, ensuring you get the most flavorful espresso possible. You can turn this 2-second pre-infusion feature on or off on the Titanium Plus, and even set it to be a bit longer if you want.
The Titanium Plus is all about meeting your needs and those you entertain, so a bypass doser is one of its key features. This easy-to-use coffee chute lets you brew using pre-ground coffee instead of the whole beans in your hopper. This is great for evening espressos when you want decaf, or if you just want to try a type of coffee other than what’s in your hopper.
Professional-grade Conical Burr Grinder
High quality espresso comes from a fine, consistent grind. The professional-grade conical burr grinder in the Gaggia Titanium Plus has 18 different fineness settings, so you can find the perfect setting to meet your needs. The grind setting can be simply changed by simply turning the knob inside the 8.5 oz bean hopper.
Active Cup Warmer
The secret to great tasting espresso is preheating your brewing components, and it’s important not to forget about those cups. Keep your espresso coffee hot by brewing right into warm cups with the built-in active cup warmer on the Gaggia Titanium Plus. With enough room for 6 demitasse cups, you can be sure everyone gets a nice, hot cup of espresso.
