    Hello clever people, First post, so here goes... I have a problem with my Gaggia Cubika. When releasing the filter holder after brewing an espresso the machine seems to have built up pressure and explodes the coffee grinds all over the floor. I don't get this all the time, but it's becoming a...

    I have had a gaggia cubika plus for just under 2 weeks. It kept not coming on, heating up and no lights on the brew button. I found lose wiring on the switches, not sure if this was the cause of all my problems. I booked it in to return to Amazon before I found the lose wiring. So now its...

    Hello everyone. This year has sent me down the past of getting that perfect espresso, what started as just wanting decent coffee at home has turned into a little bit of an obsession. However I started off down this path with a Gaggia Cubika as I got it for a good second hand price. I have...

    Hi all, a quick note to people with gaggia cubikas that have faulty buttons, if the casing of your buttons is all black they will all need replacing when they go faulty, the new ones have a brown border, if you do have to replace them they WILL NEED WIRING DIFFERENTLY, or you will blow your...

    Hi, I bought the Cubika 2nd hand. I planned to take on hols and leave my Classic at home. When I descaled it and cleaned it, I got a lot of grey water from the tank. This kept on coming, even after running lots of water through. Any ideas? Or is this stuffed? Thanks.

    I'm looking into buying a "proper" espresso machine after dabbling with a cheap Argos one. I'll be looking at secondhand models really, probably on ebay. My budget is upto around £100. It'll only be used once/twice a day at the most so it wont be getting abused! I was eyeing up the Gaggia...
