    Hi. New to this forum looking for a bit of advice. I have a Gaggia Classic, bought new in 2013, and it's been a legend since day one. Recently, I noticed slower water flow at the group head. I descale regularly, but this was a new one to me – just noticed cups were taking way to long to fill...

    I have for sale my lovely modded pre 2015 Gaggia Classic. The machine works great and is in great condition, it has been run on bottled water only with weekly cafiza back flushes. It’s a super little machine, great for new starters or experienced enthusiasts who want to take it even further with...

    For Sale: Gaggia Classic (2008 model), with Silvia steam attachment, for £120. It's in good, working condition, but would probably benefit from a service. The steam wand has always had a slight drip when the machine is on, but it's not much of an inconvenience (apparently quite common for these...

    Recently changed the gasket as the old one was starting to show some cracks, it was past its best shall we say. With the old one, the PF handle would rotate around to about 5 o'clock ( looking from above) when loaded. Now the new one, only travels round to about 7 o'clock and feels quite...

    Hi guys I've got a Gaggia Classic (pre 2015) that has served me superbly since new, in 2014. This morning however I've noticed the group head is only dripping water?? No flow/pressure. If I switch to steam wand is pushes water through great. Is this a fault with the solenoid unit on the back...

    Hi, so I was just about to buy a bottomless pf for my gaggia classic and a ridgeless 18g VST basket to go with it when this made me pause: https://www.bellabarista.co.uk/vst-18g-ridged-precision-porta-filter-basket.html It says the basket is compatible for pf handles sized for E61 group heads...

    Hi All, I'm interest in gaggia tamping methods. It seems if I tamp the basket and then I place the basket in the portafilter as it is quite a tight fit (clicks into place) the puck can become dislodged or breaks up a bit which could cause channeling? On the other hand if I tamp with the basket...

    This may be a very silly question.....but, what size VST basket do I need for an 18g shot, 18g or 20g? Common sense would say I need an 18g basket but my confusion comes from seeing brew recipes that recommend 18g of coffee in a 20g VST basket.. if it makes any difference, I'm using a bottomless...

  18. Gaggia Forum
    I've been reading that the older classic is better than the 2015 model. Is this correct? And am I not to buy the 2015 model or its just the better of the two machines but this years classic is still a good machine? Thanks
  19. Sage Forum
    Hi after asking quite a few different people I still dont seem to have a definitive answer. I am looking to get a decent coffee machine on a £500 budget and I'm lost to be honest. I have seen the Sage barista express myself but asked someone "in the know" and the automatically said done buy bean...
  20. Gaggia Forum
    Hi, I am after my first machine and have had a look through the various forums and seem to be swayed towards a Gaggia machine, mostly due to good reports of quality of coffee and price. My budget is around £200, I have seen the Classic 2015 model and the older version, any advice on the...
