To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Gaggia Classic, Gaggia asked the artist Pierpaolo Gaballo to choose a symbol that could celebrate this iconic product, the company’s values and the ritual of the Italian espresso.
He opted for an Acrobat. In this character, he saw a natural parallelism with the Home Barista.
The culmination of 80 years of tradition, history and experience, the Gaggia Classic Acrobat features a traditional group, large solenoid valve and traditional filter holder to ensure total control over the coffee, as well as a professional steam arm that will froth the perfect microfoam for your cappuccinos.
Designed to professional standards, the group head and filter holder are made of chromed brass to ensure high quality and machine longevity, while the three-way solenoid valve relieves the pressure in the filter holder immediately after pulling a shot. The boiler is designed for unparalleled temperature stability, and the 15 bar pump pushes the hot water through the ground coffee at high pressure to ensure better tasting, crema topped, espresso.
The machine also comes with three filters: a “perfect crema” basket to help you create the perfect espresso, as well as single (7g) and double (14g) traditional baskets that allow you to perfect your home barista skills.
All of our bean-to-cup machines and espresso makers are brand new and delivered boxed. All of our Gaggia models are fitted with UK power adaptors. Orders are despatched within 2 to 3 working days.
All of our Gaggia machines are stocked in the UK and come with a 3-year UK warranty included in the price, as well as dedicated technical support direct from Gaggia, should you ever require it.
You may see certain Gaggia models selling for a lower price than shown at Coffee-Direct, but it is important to note that these products are often imported from outside of the UK and are sold with no UK warranty.

The Gaggia Classic Acrobat
The Gaggia Classic Acrobat is the culmination of 80 years of tradition, history and experience, allowing you to pay attention to every detail and brew real, Italian espresso with the utmost precision.
The iconic design of the Gaggia Classic has been updated to enhance your home barista experience, with a new side shape that makes the water level visible and a drip tray that has been redesigned for extra stability.
Professional Chromed Brass group and Filter Holder
Designed to professional standards, the Acrobat’s group head and filter holder are made of chromed brass to ensure the best in espresso quality and machine longevity, as well as a consistent and stable brewing temperature throughout the entire brewing process.
The three-way solenoid valve relieves pressure in the filter holder immediately after pulling a shot. Water empties from the filter holder into the drip tray via the open valve, leaving the coffee puck dry and making it easy to clean.

Designed for unparalleled temperature stability, the boiler gives you the best espresso every time you brew, while the 15 bar pump pushes the hot water through the ground coffee at high pressure to ensure better tasting, crema topped espresso.
Professional Steam Wand with Two Steam Outlets
The perfect way to steam milk and make silky, bar-quality microfoam.
Three Filters for Ground and Pod Coffee
The machine comes with three filters: a “perfect crema” basket to help you create the perfect espresso from the first use, while single (7g) and double (14g) traditional baskets allow you to perfect your home barista skills.
Espresso cups and glasses can be stored on the top of the machine for convenience and to be ambiently heated by the boiler.
