Gaggia Brera is a super-automatic espresso machine. There's very little to set up apart from depositing coffee beans into the bean hopper (or pre-ground coffee); the grinder has an adjustment system that automatically adjusts the grind levels for you. After that, it's just pressing a button to get a cup. This makes it ideal for busy people who wants a quick quality cuppa. See More
