Brew like a barista with the Gaggia TS, a high-end semi-commercial espresso machine with professional-grade construction, components, and capabilities. This model offers all the features associated with commercial machines while retaining a small footprint, making it ideal for home or light commercial use. Knob-based controls for steaming and frothing functions!
Copper Boiler and 1500-Watt Heating Element
The large, 2.3-liter capacity copper boiler is ideal for substantial output and has quick heat up and recovery times. With a unique horizontal mount design, the heating element in the boiler is kept better submerged with water when in use, adding to the longevity of the component. The 1500-watt heating element is powerful enough to provide great performance while maintaining temperature stability. To protect you and your investment, the machine has a pressure release valve that takes the pressure off of the boiler if it exceeds a safe limit.
Commercial Grade Heat Exchanger
A commercial-grade precisely engineered heat exchanger on the Gaggia TS is one of the best features of the machine. It helps provide temperature stability and allows users to brew espresso and steam/froth milk at the same time. This eliminates the inconvenience of wait time that is typical with single boiler machines that don’t have heat exchangers.
Chrome Plated Brass Brew Group
A commercial-grade, chrome-plated brass brew group provides exceptional temperature consistency and long term durability. As an added benefit, the brew group uses an electronic heating technology and is thermostat controlled for additional temperature stability required to produce the best espresso possible.
Rapid Steam System and Commercial Grade Steam Wand
Produce amazing milk-based drinks with the four-holed steam wand that is designed to evenly distribute steam throughout the milk for outstanding microfoam texture and consistency. For steam angle flexibility and ease of use, the steam wand is swivel-mounted. A front-mounted knob controls steam output. The machine produces very powerful dry steam pressure, allowing users to steam a liter of milk in as little as 40 seconds with the turbo steam nozzle. This kind of timing is hard to beat with competing machines.
To keep milk from being sucked through the steam wand and into the boiler, the Gaggia TS has an anti-suction valve connected to the steam wand. You won’t have to worry as much about your steam wand getting clogged or about your boiler being tainted with milk that could soon spoil.
Commercial Grade Portafilters
The Gaggia TS comes with two high quality, chrome-plated brass portafilters that provide great temperature consistency. Each of the portafilters is commercial grade, 58mm diameter. One of the portafilters is a single spout; the other is a double spout. For backflushing, a stainless steel disc also comes with the machine.
Easily Removable Water Reservoir
The Gaggia TS has an easily removable internal water reservoir for easy refills and cleaning. The water level in the reservoir is monitored by a sensor that turns on an indicator light when the reservoir needs to be refilled.
The body of the Gaggia TS is made with high quality, heavy-duty stainless steel the provides durability and easy maintenance. The front panel and the drip tray are beautifully polished, while the remainder of the body has a powder-coated finish.
To provide easy spill clean up, the machine is built with a raised design – it has four stainless steel legs that provide enough space under the machine to allow you to clean under it.
Swivel-Joint Hot Water Dispenser
The Gaggia TS comes with an easy to use, swivel-mounted hot water dispenser that makes it ideal for the production of tea, hot chocolate, Americanos and more. The dispenser is controlled by a knob that allows you to set the desired water flow.
Machine Top Cup Warmer
Keep your cups warm with the built-in machine top cup warmer. The stainless steel rack can also serve a dual purpose for cup storage. Maintenance and cleaning are easy with durable construction material.
To provide enhanced flavor and aroma to extracted espresso, the Gaggia TS has pre-infusion technology that wets the coffee immediately before applying pressure to it.
Front Mounted Pressure Gauge
Easily monitor the machine’s boiler pressure with a gauge mounted on the front of the machine.
13 Bar Water Pump
With 13 bars of pressure, the volumetric motor pump on the Gaggia TS provides more than enough pressure for proper espresso extraction.
Knob / Switch Controls
The front panel has a series of switch and knob style controls that provide a classy look and feel as well as make machine operation easy.
Commercial Solenoid Valve
To dry the coffee puck and prevent dripping post-extraction, a commercial-grade, three-way solenoid valve removes pressure from the coffee grounds and sucks excess water out and into the drip tray.
