Thanks to the exclusive integrated Cappuccinatore, it is the first model capable of preparing two cappuccinos or two latte macchiatos at the same time".

Whether it is an intense Italian ristretto (turn the knob to the right) or an American-style long coffee (turn the knob to the left) SBS satisfies all tastes giving a full flavour and a truly unique creamy finish.

Gaggia is the best known Italian manufacturer of coffee machines for profesional and household use and its name is synonymous with tradition and reliability the world over. The company was set up in 1947 by Achille Gaggia the man to whom we are indebted for the success of esresso coffee all over the world. It was he who on September 5th 1938 filed a patent no 365726 with which modern steam free coffee machines may be said to have been born.
In 1977 Gaggia began producing coffee machines for the home launching the Baby Gaggia which to this day is considered to be the ideal family coffee maker. The design and technological advances have changed the way the machines look and work but the objective of quality reliability and passion for the right espresso everytime has remained throughout Gaggia's history and this is what makes Gaggia legendary. The cappuccinno XTwo is a fully automatic bean to cup coffee machine. With the aid of graphic display and icons you can prepare your favourite coffee beverages with little effort. It comes with Sensitive touch technology, which not only gives the machine its up to date look but also makes it easier to use
Insta Steam allows the machine to produce steam immediately for cappuccinos and lattes. This is achieved with the double boiler, one for coffee the other for steam. The drip tray can be easily raised electrically with a simple touch allowing for different cup sizes. Espresso cups or latte glasses can easily be accomodated.
Touch2Cappuccino is a patented revolutionary technology which allows you to prepare two cappuccinos or two latte macchiatos simultaneously. The Touch2Cappuccino system consists of a milk container placed directly inside the machine. The milk is drawn from this container, frothee internally and then dispensed into the cup.
The new ceramic grinder provides a more consistent grind, allowing perfect dosing and blending and gives more control over the density and body of your coffee.
Nanotechnology substantially facilitates the cleaning process. The proven properties of nanotechnology guarantee that all components in contact with milk are perfectly clean.
The Aqua Prima water filter was developed to remove impurities from your water that alter the taste of your coffee while protecting your machine from limescale damage.
