The Gaggia Carezza is one of the company's "budget entry" espresso machines. It features many of the same parts found on other Gaggia machines.
Bottom Line: Even a newbie can create decent espresso with this machine!
Bottom Line: Can this be the ONE?
Bottom Line: Excellent value for the money. Take the plunge and buy one!
Martin Strommer (quality: 3.5)
Bottom Line: Lacks in both built quality and usability. Would not recommend.
Skip Thomsen (quality: 4.5)
Bottom Line: Bottom line: The Carezza is one heck of a bargain.
Chris Monroe (quality: 4.7)
Bottom Line: It may be beautiful on the inside, but it's a mess otherwise. Find another Gaggia with better ergonomics.
Jen Savage (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Good beginner machine, but will ultimately need to be replaced.
Kent Vaughn (quality: 5.2)
Bottom Line: One of the best machines for the cost
Erik Hovland (quality: 5.2)
Bottom Line: great machine for the price. But noise and hard water issues means I can only recommend for light use or starter machine.
Troy Howard (quality: 5.3)
Bottom Line: GREAT entry level espresso machine that makes shots equivalent to much costlier machines.
Kevin Flack (quality: 5.3)
Bottom Line: Good machine, minor annoyances, GREAT ESPRESSO!!!
Greg Cook (quality: 5.4)
Bottom Line: Makes good coffee but NOISY
Jason Jacobson (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: Great middle-ground machine for the price, just watch your parts carefully.
Shayne Farquhar (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Possibly the best value for money domestic machine on the market.
Scott Harris (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: I'd buy again question.
Dan Hamilton (quality: 6.3)
Bottom Line: It's easy to spend more and get less. It's easy to spend a lot more and get more, too, but I'd rather blow the savings on exotic coffee.
Ian Hirst (quality: 6.4)
Bottom Line: An excellent mid range domestic product at an entry level price.
Nathan Enders (quality: 6.7)
Bottom Line: Great machine for the price!
Peter Buckley (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: Very satisfied with the RPR!! (Results to Price Ratio). The costs are focused on what's inside (refreshing contrast)! The hefty commercial sized chromed brass head group / portafilter is a true standout for this price range!
Ken Zemach (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: It's the Rocky of coffee makers: a bit rough around the edges, perhaps not that attractive, but rock solid quality and great results.
