With the release of the new Gaggia Accademia fully automatic coffee machine, Gaggia brings the taste and expertise of Italian coffee into the homes of their customers. The machine offers a multisensory interaction, as it can be controlled via a 5’’ touchscreen and rotary knobs.

Gaggia Milano –
one of Italy’s most iconic brands
Gaggia is a renowned manufacturer of high-end espresso machines based in Italy. They have been in business for more than 85 years and are known for their commitment to quality and innovation.
In 1938, the founder Achille Gaggia filed a patent for a revolutionary system to extract coffee with hot water pressure instead of steam and gave life to the “authentic Italian espresso with crema naturale”. For many years, the company produced professional machines for coffee shops, selling all over the world and becoming a reference brand in the field. Then, in 1977, the product portfolio was expanded to include espresso machines for home use, a business on which the company decided to focus on in recent years.
Their state-of-the-art products are inspired by their expertise, their never-ending passion for coffee, and their one-of-a-kind heritage. The company’s mission is to uplift simple coffee moments to bespoke home barista experiences, under the motto of “Continuously evolving tradition“.
Perfect coffee at your fingertips with Gaggia and Embedded Wizard
When Gaggia decided to incorporate a touch display into their new line of coffee machines, they turned to Embedded Wizard for help concerning the development of the graphical user interface (GUI). They needed a GUI that would be intuitive, user-friendly, and visually appealing. Additionally, it was important that the GUI was customizable for different markets, as Gaggia sells their products all over the world.
The GUI was designed with a focus on simplicity and ease of use, with intuitive touch controls and clear visual feedback and was optimized for performance and reliability, ensuring that it would run smoothly even on resource-constrained hardware.
Our distributor and partner Tecnologix supported Gaggia in implementing this project. According to their credo that they like to practice everything they sell, they are really effective in supporting customers in their projects. For Gaggia’s brand new Accademia coffee machine, Gaggia designed the user interface, experience and ergonomic flow, Tecnologix, as Embedded Wizard experts, engineered Gaggia’s ideas and graphics into the GUI firmware.
Your bespoke home barista experience
Gaggia’s Accademia coffee machine is a masterful combination of powerful user interaction and high-quality coffee experience. Their multisensory approach to operating the coffee machine is truly unique. At the heart of this approach is the full-color 5’’ touch display with 3D-like icons and backlit buttons, which was developed with Embedded Wizard. The intuitive and responsive interface provides an easy-to-use control panel that enables users to select and customize their coffee preferences, elevating the customer’s overall experience. With just a few taps on the touch screen, coffee lovers can choose from a wide range of coffee and milk specialties. The ability to adjust the strength, temperature, and body of the drink ensures that every cup is perfectly tailored to the customer’s preferences. The touch display with its modern user interface not only enhances the user experience but also adds to the machine’s modern design.
With the help of Embedded Wizard, Gaggia was able to create a reliable and state-of-the-art user interface that elevates the coffee experience for users around the world. The Accademia coffee machine provides a perfect blend of user interaction and high-quality coffee, allowing customers to enjoy the taste of Italy’s iconic coffee in the comfort of their own homes.
