The Gaggia Platinum Vogue model is an expensive, mid-grade fully automatic Espresso machine. 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 and is encased in a stainless steel which surrounds the entire exterior; the exterior is then topped off with a professional titanium (silver) color finish.

The Platinum Vogue device can brew Cappucinos, lattes, and tea automatically; and also includes support for an optional milk island accessory. For convenience the device provides a built-in ceramic burr grinder that can physically be altered through menu settings to grind coffee beans medium or coarse depending on user preference. The 8.8 ounce bean hopper catches the beans after being grinded and allows an adjustable amount of 7 to 10-1/2 grams of ground coffee for use. The most advanced feature of the Platinum Vogue is the hassle free control panel; the information is all displayed via the small LCD screen (black and white) and the device alerts users via touch ring sounds. A special integrated Espresso Plus system allows for the adjustment and regulation of beverage strength, intensity and body through a simple turn dial. 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 Platinum Vogue model includes additional features such as a high powered 15 bar pump pressure, a stainless steel lined boiler with rapid steam boiling support for quick beverage preperation, Aqua Prima water filter compatibility, a fully detachable 57 ounce water tank which allows easier cleaning and fillup methods, a passive heated cup warmer, a height adjustable cup tray, and support to brew and prepare two beverages at once. The Platinum Vogue model comes bundled with a few extra accessories such as an Aqua Prima water filter, and a water hardness test strip.
