Gaggia Brera: Cold Coffee and Espresso Shots

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

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. If your machine utilizes a cup warming function, you can use it to preheat the cups. If the shots are completely cold, then the brew thermostat is broken and the machine will require a repair.
