Some Key Features on the GAGGIA Classic II 2017
At the heart of the Gaggia Classic coffee machine is an electric pump made by by Defona the model is the PHOENIX-50 A2P 03 operating at 53 watts. This is the strongest pump in its class. Here below a picture of the new pump. As you can see from the picture Gaggia in the New Classic 2015 completely redisegned the structure where the pump is located. In the older version there was a major issue on the stirrup which was often breaking down.
A New Stainless steel Boiler class AAA:
Also the Gaggia Classic II 2017’s unique boiler system incorporates 2 heating elements. These heating elements are embedded into the sides of the boiler so as to avoid damage due to corrosion.
The advantages of the Classic’s unique boiler stainless steel boiler are:
- The heating element is protected from corrosion.(a major reason other machines often are needing repairs)
- The entire boiler becomes a highly efficient heating element andHeating stability is greatly enhanced.
- This new Boiler installed just in our New Gaggia Classic II 2017 is finally made in stainless steel, in the previous version was made in alluminium which is not good infact exposed at high temperature it was relesasing aluminum oxide on the water.
- Finally in this version with the decision of redesign the boiler completely using stainless steel this problem has been now solved.
- The boiler of the Gaggia Classic 2017 II is now bigger: the capacity is now 250 ml, before it was just 80 ml. This will let you have more coffee constant pressure and more steam for your capuccino’s.
- Another important feature is the Save Energy system controlled by a dedicate motherboard will make you save money from your electricity bill and will electronically handle always a perfect temperature on your machine. It will automatically goes in standby if is not being used for more than 15 min.

Full size Portafilter and more:
The New Gaggia Classic II 2017 brews coffee the same way a commercial machine does. The Classic even has a commercial size, 58mm, portafilter. The large size of the filter holder ensures the water is distributed evenly through the coffee. This is part of the reason why the Gaggia Classic is able to produce such good coffee.
The group head and filter holder are made cast brass and are chrome plated. Cast brass is the best way to keep the temperature stable during the brewing cycle because it retains heat, By using cast brass, as is used in commercial machines, the Gaggia Classic produces shots that rival your best café coffees.

Hot water can be dispensed through the steam wand simply by turning on the pump and turning the steam knob for other drinks like hot chocolate or soups.
You can use ESE pods with this machine along with ground coffee. The ideal solution is that you purchase a separate grinder, this will gurantee better results and much more crema in the cup. Here a list of grinders we recommend you along with your Gaggia Classic II 2017 Ed.
