Today we take an in-depth look at GAGGIA Viva vs. DELONGHI auto espresso products, which sets them apart and makes any of them unique.

GAGGIA Viva Espresso Machines

GAGGIA Viva can be traced back to the 30s and 40s when founder ACHILLE GAGGIA filed his 1st patent for a steam-free espresso device that replaced conventional steam-based espresso extraction with a new, extremely pressurized tech that allowed for a one-shot to be brewed in fifteen seconds.

This patent launched the modern era of espresso-making technology and development for both professional and domestic markets, and by 1949 the Gaggia brand was well known in Milan and across international markets.

GAGGIA is most often associated with their GAGGIA Viva classical manual espresso device. In recent times, they’ve become increasingly competitive in the automatic espresso machine industry.

DELONGHI Espresso Machines

On the other side, DELONGHI is a comparatively new company, entering the espresso machine market in the 90s.

Despite lacking the expensive age of competing companies such as SAECO and GAGGIA, DELONGHI still has just thirty years of experience below the belt.

My name is Logan, and Italian Coffee Lover, deeply in love with Espresso and Cappuccino. I can't live without the smell of coffee in the morning :) In short, I love coffee. I started this website to talk about coffee, coffee beans, coffee grinders, and the Italian Coffee Maker. Italian Coffee Makers is a one-stop destination for all things related to the best Italian Coffee Lover, guides, tips and best product reviews that are tested by the team. Each of the espresso machines and coffee makers is rigorously tested to ensure it meets the standards of excellence. It’s only my opinion of course, but I have had some of the best (and worst) coffee from around the world. I can tell you for sure that the Italians take coffee seriously. It is more than a casual drink or quick start for the day…it is part of the national identity. It should be no surprise that the Italian coffee maker produces some of the best coffee you could hope to drink.
