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. Alternatively you can use the machine's hot water function to fill the cup with hot water before pulling a shot to preheat it. If the shots are completely cold, then the brew thermostat is broken and the machine will require a repair.
