EVERY DREAM HAS A DIVINE SOUL
From the Italian word meaning goddess, diva or star, La Dea is a synthesis of tradition and innovation. This espresso machine is the latest jewel from Gaggia Milano and the perfect fit for small but premium locations, such as boutique cafés, concept stores, kiosks and cocktail bars. Demanding and sophisticated coffee lovers and baristas alike will appreciate its minimalist and original design - with refined and pleasantly retro lines - as much as its professional technologies and components – including the coffee group and the internal boiler – in such a compact footprint.
BETWEEN TRADITION AND INNOVATION
La Dea is a further synthesis of tradition and innovation. Within its compact dimensions and minimalist design lie the technology and robust reliability users have come to expect in every Gaggia Milano coffee machine. Compared to the most of today’s traditional machines, La Dea stands out from the crowd thanks to its classic design, which incorporates a series of unique and captivating options. In addition to some subtle nuances that suggest impeccable attention to detail – such as the old-fashioned knobs to activate the steam wand and the hot water spout – both the stainless steel group head of La Dea and its classic manual Levetta are reminiscent of the iconic design of Gaggia’s original models.
ERGONOMICS AND AESTHETICS
The design of La Dea is both ergonomically sound and aesthetically pleasing. These crucial objectives are enhanced by an uncompromising choice of materials and technological solutions.
For instance, the on-board 1.5 Lt single boiler and 120cc heat exchanger are served by an embedded 2 Lt water tank, which can be refilled directly inside the machine, and easily removed for filling and cleaning. That means there’s no need for the machine to be plumbed in, so potentially it can be installed virtually anywhere. The choice of stainless steel for most of its bodywork, including the directable steam wand and the adjustable hot water spout, means the machine can enhance any location. Regardless of style. The upper crown – in white or copper – can even be removed and customised effortlessly.
THE EASIEST SET-UP
Ease of use and clean lines: these are the features that best describe La Dea’s user interface, but that’s not all. Its compact 1.54-inch LCD colour display offers wealth of functionality. As well as setting the machine’s parameters, users can set and check both the temperature (based on the PID system) and the extraction time of each cup of coffee. Additionally, this espresso machine offers another great feature: users can programme the machine to switch on automatically.
