Previous Product Consumer Espresso Next Product

The Gaggia Carezza is one of the company's "budget entry" espresso machines. It features many of the same parts found on other Gaggia machines.

Bottom Line: great machine, great price,  good value
Chris Monroe (quality: 4.7) 11.22.2006 Rating: 4.0
Bottom Line: It may be beautiful on the inside, but it's a mess otherwise.  Find another Gaggia with better ergonomics.
Dan Hamilton (quality: 6.3) 04.21.2004 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: It's easy to spend more  and get less. It's easy to spend a lot more and get more, too, but I'd rather blow the savings on exotic coffee.
Dr. Robert Case (quality: 8.9) 07.21.2006 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: An excellent espresso machine for a small price.
Erik Hovland (quality: 5.2) 12.14.2005 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: great machine for the price. But noise and hard water issues means I can only recommend for light use or starter machine.
Greg Cook (quality: 5.4) 09.01.2005 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: Makes good coffee but NOISY
Greg Kaan (quality: 8.2) 06.07.2004 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Ridiculous value has to make you think about the cost of many other machines
Ian Hirst (quality: 6.4) 04.23.2002 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: An excellent mid range domestic product at an entry level price.
Jason Jacobson (quality: 5.8) 05.22.2003 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Great middle-ground machine for the price, just watch your parts carefully.
Jen Bolyard 03.07.2008 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Even a newbie can create decent espresso with this machine!
Jen Savage (quality: 5.0) 05.27.2007 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Good beginner machine, but will ultimately need to be replaced.
Joe Dolan 02.05.2009 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Excellent value for the money.  Take the plunge and buy one!
Ken Zemach (quality: 7.0) 06.07.2009 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: It's the Rocky of coffee makers: a bit rough around the edges, perhaps not that attractive, but rock solid quality and great results.
Kent Vaughn (quality: 5.2) 07.04.2005 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: One of the best machines for the cost
Kevin Flack (quality: 5.3) 02.06.2007 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Good machine, minor annoyances, GREAT ESPRESSO!!!
Martin Strommer (quality: 3.5) 09.01.2006 Rating: 2.4
Bottom Line: Lacks in both built quality and usability. Would not recommend.
Matthew Hall (quality: 8.0) 08.19.2007 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: For making a reasonable shot of espresso this machine is a bargain, it has already paid for itself, having kept me chain store free since I've had it.
Michael Allan (quality: 7.2) 10.09.2005 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Hands down this is a professional machine for a discount price, spend the extra 30 bucks on a good tamper...
Nathan Enders (quality: 6.7) 09.07.2007 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Great machine for the price!
Peter Buckley (quality: 6.8) 06.06.2004 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Very satisfied with the RPR!!  (Results to Price Ratio). The costs are focused on what's inside (refreshing contrast)!  The hefty commercial sized chromed brass head group / portafilter is a true standout for this price range!
