The Gaggia Brera is a mid-cost espresso machine. This is a class A energy device, and in stand by mode this machine consumes less than one watt of power. The little energy the Brera takes up is used to power the electronic control panel, which allows you to input your coffee settings with button presses (there are four function keys). The LED display of the Brera is designed to be easily visible, so that you can be sure of what settings you have chosen. Settings include two cups of coffee at once, as this espresso machine has dual spouts. Once the coffee is done and its time to clean up, the Gaggia Brera's removable coffee grounds container helps to make it easy.

Had TWO coffees with the thing. Then the grinder didn't seem to grin the beans. Only water came out. After I followed the instructions and primed it about 5 times, removed the grind unit the same amount, I brewed about ten (10) coffees (water only came out). Unplugged it removed the grind unit ,replaced it then nothing. Nada. The bloody thing doesn't even turn on.
Impressed so far.
