The Gaggia Espresso Pure model is a low-end semi-automatic Espresso machine. It is worthy of noting that the Espresso Pure machine is nearly identical to the Espresso Color, and Espresso Dose machines; the only difference being the color of the exterior finish. The machine is more specifically designed for personal consumer use, meaning more home-based appliance but that is not to say however that the device can't be used commercially for a small business. The body design is composed of a durable ABS plastic; the exterior is then topped off with a professional finish that is only available in a professional red finish. The Espresso Pure device can brew Cappucinos, lattes, and tea; and also includes support for an optional milk island accessory. A special built-in Pannarello steam wand provides superior milk frothing for certain required beverages (thick cappucinos and lattes) and also provides hot water for cocoa, tea or soup.

The Gaggia Espresso Pure model includes additional features such as a high powered 15 bar pump pressure, a chrome plated brass portafilter and brew group for temperature stability, a fully detachable 1.25 liter (42 ounce or 5-1/4 cups) water tank which allows easier cleaning and fill-up methods, a heated cup warmer, and support to brew and prepare two beverages at once. The Gaggia Espresso Pure machine also comes bundled with 3 filter baskets, a coffee tamper and a coffee scoop as additional accessories.
