Which Is Best: The Gaggia Brera, Platinum or Titanium?
First of all, it’s important to note that these three machines are not on the same price range: the Brera being the most affordable, then the Titanium then the Platinum. That said, with budget aside, here’s what we think:
- The Gaggia Platinum wins for its touch screen control and its Espresso Plus feature, which the other machines lack.
- The Titanium is best when it comes to water tank capacity, saving you many refilling trips.
- The Gaggia Brera is the best size wise, it’s perfect for small spaces and office use. It’s also the most affordable.
