Gaggia Brera: Cold Coffee and Espresso Shots

Learn what to do if your Gaggia Brera is producing cold espresso shots or coffee.

Note: It is important to know that the accepted temperature range as communicated by Gaggia is between 176°F and 190°F

Optimizing the Temperature

If your beverages are at the low end of the range or slightly below 176°F, Try this:

  • Make sure you are using a preheated cup. Ceramic cups will sap a lot of heat from the shot resulting in a colder shot. Preheating the cups using the machine's hot water function is suggested, or you can brew into a paper, styrofoam, or other well-insulated cup. 
  • Make sure you are using room-temperature water in your reservoir. Using refrigerated water will have a negative impact on the thermal stability of the boiler, resulting in colder beverages.

If your beverages are coming out at or near room temperature:

This will be caused by an issue with the thermostat and the machine will require service.

Failure of normal wear and tear items such as group gaskets, seals, and shower screens are not covered under warranty.  Issues due to scale build-up or lack of maintenance are not covered.
