If you want a high quality, yet affordable espresso machine, then Gaggia is the name to go for. The Italian made machines start at $200 only, making them an affordable option for many people. So far on our website, we’ve covered many Gaggia machines, and in this post, we add another one, the Gaggia Evolution. We’ll also be comparing it to a few other Gaggia machines of the same class and price range.

  • Features of the Gaggia Evolution Espresso  Machine:
  • 15 bar espresso machine with commercial style group-head.
  • 44 oz water reservoir.
  • Turbo frothing wand for the best froth results.
  • Plastic housing.
  • Single and Double gaskets included. Can also use e.s.e pods.
  • Three control buttons: power, brew and steam.
  • 1425  Watts

Gaggia Espresso Machine Comparisons:

Gaggia Classic vs. Evolution:

Gaggia Classic is the best of all semi-automatic espresso machines by Gaggia, here’s the difference between it and Evolution (and other Gaggias):

  • It is superior in quality, with a full brushed stainless steel housing.
  • It has a larger water reservoir, 72 oz.
  • It has higher pressure, 17 1/2 bar, which extracts more flavor.

Gaggia Evolution vs. New Baby:

The Baby Twin is also higher in quality than the Evolution, but also more expensive. The difference:

  • Chrome-plated grouphead and portafilter.
  • 64 oz water reservoir.

Apart from those two points, we don’t see major difference between the two machines and it might not be worth the upgrade over the Evolution.

Gaggia Evolution vs. Gaggia Pure:

  • 1100 Watts voltage, it is lower than all machines above.
  • 42 oz water reservoir – smaller than the Evolution.
  • Hot water dispenser.

The Gaggia Pure isn’t highly recommended over the Evolution or other Gaggia machine. It is outdated and is almost only available as refurbished or used. Also, due to its lower voltage, we would recommend the Evolution over it.
