The Gaggia Velasca Prestige is a striking super-automatic machine that delivers piping hot espresso and milk-based drinks at the press of a button. It’s ready to brew in seconds and its easy maintenance make it last for years.
The Velasca Prestige is a major step up from the base Velasca model. With its integrated milk carafe, it can automatically froth milk for cappuccinos and lattes, on top of brewing espressos and coffees. It’s considered a one-touch machine, because in just one touch the Velasca Prestige will craft a personalized drink exactly to your specifications, and it looks good doing it! The machine gets hot quick, with very little wait time between brewing and steaming, and the added benefit of being able to pull the carafe direct from the fridge when making a milk based drink. We’re in love with any machine that brews an espresso, especially on those particularly sleepy-eyed mornings, but we have a soft spot for the Velasca for its 45 second initial heat up, and barely discernible rapid steam heat up. We’ve noticed that the Velasca is hotter than other super-autos, which might be the reason for these snappy heat up times. The espresso and lungo buttons can be double clicked for automatic double brewing, and milk drinks include cappuccino, milk foam for doppios, hot cocoas and the like, and the adorably named baby cappuccino, which is a 50/50 blend of espresso and frothed milk.
The Velasca works in much the same way as the Velasca aside from milk. Its ceramic burr grinder can be adjusted across ten grind settings, giving you much needed control over the extraction of different beverages. The integrated bypass doser adds further functionality, allowing you to brew using pre-ground coffee, too. Coffee is adjustable across five strength settings, three temperature settings, and, the Prestige model boasts adjustable pre-infusion for even more control. The Velasca Prestige will alert you to its maintenance needs; comes with a water filter; is capable of descaling itself; and pressing the “Carafe Quick Clean” button after steaming will rinse out the milk circuit. Plus, Gaggia’s specially designed brew group is removable for easy cleaning. All of this is to say that not only does it serve up tasty bevvies, it’s easy to maintain. We love the Velasca. It’s meticulously handcrafted, steeped in tradition, and reliable to boot. Take a look at the standard Velasca if you prefer to steam by hand with a wand; or, if you need a machine with larger capacities, the Anima Prestige offers similar functionality.
Your ideal beverage can be further customized with your preferred volume and temperature for barista quality coffee with all of the flavor and none of the attitude. Unique to the Velasca Prestige is the ability to choose between one of three levels of pre-infusion to soak your grounds prior to extraction. This aids in bringing out the flavor profile of your coffee for better brews.
The Velasca Prestige’s unique milk system froths milk from the carafe twice before dispensing it to ensure ideal temperature and texture. For easy and hygienic cleaning, the machine is equipped with a dedicated button to rinse the milk circuit after each use. For added simplicity, the carafe is dishwasher safe and can be stored in the refrigerator when not in use.
The Velasca Prestige comes equipped with a ceramic burr grinder that’s durable, precise, and has minimal heat transfer during grinding. It has 10 settings ranging from extra fine for crema rich espresso to coarser grinds ideal for long coffees. Skip the grinder entirely by way of the bypass doser when you want to brew pre-ground coffee; it’s great for the occasional decaf.
Cleaning the Valesca is simple. The brew group can be removed for hand cleaning, and the machine has a descaling cycle pre-programmed in. Use the included water test strip to program in your water hardness and the Velasca will alert you when it’s time to descale. Install the Mavea Intenza in the 1.6 L reservoir to preserve coffee taste and improve your machine’s longevity.
