Gaggia are a phenomenally successful Italian brand that are responsible for bringing the espresso machine into our hands. They still live by the traditional Italian designs and are usually a pleasure to own. Their high price tags are indicative of excellent build quality and you’re paying for decades of expert design and experience. Gaggia machines are designed to last many years and once you’ve fallen in love with the brand, you’ll find it difficult to shake off.
This is about as close to a budget range that Gaggia gets, knowing that you get what you pay for, they aren’t in the business of sacrificing quality or design just to make a cheap product. The Gaggia 8002 is a great example of how this world-renowned company can still make highly affordable products without much compromise.
With an exceptional quality burr grinder and a sturdiness you don’t often see in this price range, this Gaggia coffee grinder will be an investment that pays off for years to come. It has a good-sized bean capacity and a wide range of settings, from fine to coarse.
The only trouble with this machine is that it’s simply not that attractive. It looks clunky and retro, nothing like the beautiful traditional machines further up the Gaggia coffee grinder range. While simple and straightforward to use and highly effective at what it does, this machine may just not appeal to the more aesthetically driven of us.
Gaggia 8002 MDF Burr Grinder Price
For a Gaggia branded and designed machine, you really can’t argue with the price here and you won’t be calling them for a refund a few years down the road. This machine is built to last and you can rely on it. Many people don’t want the decorative, traditional look of Gaggia’s more Italian designed machines; they want something that will simply do the job without them having to think about it. This machine certainly does that and for this price, a Gaggia is a total bargain.
