The Gaggia Platinum Swing uses a sleek, modern design (including a digital LCD screen and backlit touch ring controls) to achieve sophisticated, traditional brewing – a true unity of the past and future of espresso. For excellent heat retention, and to assure Rapid Steam function, the Platinum Swing features a stainless steel lined boiler. Each crema-topped shot of espresso is customizable to your preferences, as you can adjust the dosage from 7 to 10-1/2 grams of espresso per shot, adjust grind fineness to coarse, medium or fine, turn pre-infusion on or off, and more. The Pannarello steam wand ensures effortless frothing and steaming for thick cappuccinos and lattes, and the commercial-quality burr grinder crushes beans evenly and consistently to your preferred level of fineness. For those days when you have company over, amaze them with the Milk Island! Just attach it to the machine, fill it with milk and let them watch as it steams and froths their milk all by itself! The Gaggia Platinum Swing creates a coffee bar in your kitchen, a perfect addition for the home barista.
