Gaggia

Gaggia is an Italian company that makes coffee machines, especially espresso and cappuccino machines, in addition to small kitchen appliances. The company is owned by Saeco International Group, a division of Dutch consumer electronics giant Philips.

Gaggia’s founder, Achille Gaggia, was the patent owner, (patent number 365726), of the first modern steamless coffee machine on September 5, 1938, to be used commercially in his coffee bar. The machine forced water to flow over the coffee grounds at a high pressure, the principle of all modern espresso makers.
